Forza Horizon 5 issues

Matthew Buxton
5 discussion posts
Hi, I'm using DisplayFusion on a 5120x1440 display to divide the physical monitor up into 3 virtual monitors.

Whenever I start the Game Forza Horizon 5, no matter what compatibility options I set for this game, DisplayFusion always forces it over onto the right most virtual monitor, instead of letting it run full screen. I can only get the game to run full screen if I quit DisplayFusion entirely.

I've tried adding the game by dragging the target over the window and also adding it from the list but it still seems to interfere with it.

I'm on Windows 11 21H2 DisplayFusion 10.0 Beta 6

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for sending that over. This is definitely a strange one, typically games force themselves to the full size of your primary monitor. Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Also, could you try disabling that advanced setting for ignoring monitors, and see if that changes anything?

Thanks!

Hi again,

Believe I have solved this. DisplayFusion was not detecting the path correctly for the game when I dragged the little target over to the window.

I had to enter it in the compatibility settings as C:\WINDOWS\system32\Volume{538a6a1f-4dc8-6248-5b5f-13c49b28a56a}\ForzaHorizon5.exe

If anyone has this problem, enable logging, start the game, then exit it and search for "ForzaHorizon5.exe" in the log file, you should see the path to the game on your system. You can then set compatibility options to disable DisplayFusion with the game.

Course if you buy the game on Steam it's easy to find just in your Steam library folder. Good old Windows App store making things needlessly complicated.

Glad to hear you were able to get it sorted out! You can also use a wildcard so that you don't need the full path, like this:
*ForzaHorizon5.exe


Thanks!

Seems I spoke too soon, the bug has returned and DisplayFusion is forcing the game over onto the third virtual monitor again. I tried adding *ForzaHorizon5.exe as the app name but it didn't work.

I also have this issue, and I have independently tried all of the suggestions listed here before finding this thread.

If required, I can provide any debugging logs required.

I also noticed the discrepancy on the name of the application via the "drag the target method". It has a really weird path when you do that:

C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\Volume{f157ac14-0ef9-e0e0-a976-4e51c7d5a342}\ForzaHorizon5.exe


When you scroll down the application list to "Windows Universal Applications", you get this:
C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.624F8B84B80_3.410.860.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\ForzaHorizon5.exe


Note the version number there -- that will change with every patch of the game.

I can also confirm that Wildcards do not work at all:
*ForzaHorizon5.exe
does nothing to help this issue.

I believe your momentary success here was because you may not have waited long enough for DisplayFusion to "reinitialize" after the configuration changes before launching the game, and it just "snuck through" while DF was setting itself up again.

Could you send me over a debug log? I'll attach the steps again below:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!
