2 player forza 5

I go into freeplay to try and play the game with my friend in the same room.  The game says to push the "list" button for player 2. Pushing that button on either controller brings me back to the main menu.  How do i get player 2 active?

Have you guys tried having the second person sign into their profile before attempting to launch split screen?

Hi there,

Can I suggest that you have two players logged in and try this again?

If the second person has set up Kinect and their user profile should be signed in automatically. If they have not yet downloaded their profile to the Xbox, they can do so by doing the following:

  • Pressing the Xbox Logo on the controller
  • Pressing Up to get to the profile icon in the upper left
  • Press A, choose Add New.
  • Sign in with Microsoft Account and password, set up Kinect

If the second person does not have an account, or does not want to download their profile, instead of choosing 'Add New' choose 'Add a Guest'.

  • Once the second player is signed in too, go back to Forza 5 and try to start the splitscreen game again.

Let us know how this goes.

Thanks, but no. It still acts as if there is only one controller, both act as primary controller and hitting the enter button takes you back to the first screen. Can't even choose a car for the 2nd player. Have you played 2 player?

Yes, I have. And it worked flawlessly.

With them both acting as Player 1 it sounds like the same user was holding the controllers when they were enrolled so it thinks they belong to the same player if that makes sense...

After signing in as I suggested did you quit out of Forza and restart it? Press the Xbox logo, then on the Forza image press the Menu button then choose Quit. Then start it again and see if that works.

Maybe head over to the XBOX ONE support area for a more detailed answer.  Have you enrolled  the second controller  to the console???     GOOD LUCK!!!

How do you enroll a second controller.  I have searched everywhere and seen nothing about this?

Enrolling a controller just means to connect it to the console, or bind or synchronise or whatever verb you want to use.

If the second controller can control the Xbox, it has already been enrolled.

Now when you start the controllers, make sure that both players are holding one each and pointing them towards Kinect. Sign into two different profiles (Player 2 can be Guest).

Then start Forza 5 and try to start a splitscreen game.

This is awful UX/design, people are forking out a lot of money for this game and having to jump through loop holes to get the same playability functions that you'd get on racing games on a PS2 straight out of the box. How did this pass QA testing?
