How to unlock the In the Spotlight achievement

    You have to complete the Showcase Tour (12 events) before you can unlock the Spotlight series. It consists of 2 events which rotate each week.

    The great thing is you can play the same event in the spotlight series 5 times to unlock the achievement (not 5 different events).

    Gold and Platinum medals earned in the Spotlight series do count towards your count for the other achievements.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately there are no Spotlight Series events at all as of 1st August 2020, which makes the achievement unobtainable.

    TruthfulSkate8Can we please get an update, ClassierPompano? You said you're 100% sure and I want to believe you. Just even check if you can enter the Spotlight Event race. There's a lot of people now who only need Forza 6 Apex to complete the entire Forza series, including some close friends of mine.

    ClassierPompanoI have unlocked it now so check the tracker.

    Just to confirm you must own the premium DLC or have access to it to unlock this as the servers for the free ones no longer work. The DLC spotlight events are downloaded to your computer so not affected by servers.

    TruthfulSkate8BIG THANKS TO CLASSIERPOMPANO for confirming it works. Like YODA12320 above, I also though, have the problem of needing the DLC. Can someone confirm if an alt account can access the Premium DLC, as long as the main account that has it bought is on the PC?

    I wanted to ask you one thing. If it is possible to download the game with the DLC's with an account, log in with another account that does not have the DLC's and have them available (it seemed to me that this was possible by reading your comments.) It must be possible to download the full game and have the events available (I don't know if I explain myself).

    You could also try to see which files include the DLC's in the game directory and which ones you modify to upload these files to a server / cloud and that they are available to everyone and don't have to download the entire game. What do you think about this? I am willing to help with the issue, but I need someone willing to help and he/she has the DLC's to contrast the files that I have in the game and what he/she has with the installed DLCs.

    I wish I could help everyone to complete this game because as an achievement hunter it bothers me so much that they do these things and leave the games incomplete.
    A greeting (sorry for my english).

    AskHaTeRFrom 1 august 2020 this achievement is unobtainable, because dlc spotlight events are closed.

    TruthfulSkate8Where was the warning for this???? Not even a single person saw the close date in-game and warned TA? And no news articles? There's months of warnings right now for FH3 but nothing for 6 Apex? Popularity wins over accuracy?

    A guy posted what it looks like in-game. Has this game ever shown the word closed, but it came back???????

    This game was totally unfair to Xbox Forza series completionists. It should not have had achievements. Not everyone has or can afford a fucking gamer PC. I still don't have enough extra money to get one even after almost a year since I last looked into this game. It was bad enough they made this "gameshare-only" with the DLC requirement last year, but now we can't even complete this if we manage to have an account that bought it?????

    angry oftenHas this happened before with the spotlight events not being active?

    Maybe this is a temporary outage or it needs to be switched back on the normal rotation...someone help us...

    NMANOZServers have been down at times but I have not seen all events locked out like this.
