Fine, but I'm not happy about it.

Oh and I'm late - let's do it tomorrow.

This Gran Turismo 5 Bug Can Kill Your Game [UPDATE]

 UPDATE: Kazunori Yamauchi has addressed this issue via Twitter, confirming that it will be fixed in the next game update to be released on February 18th:

 Be fixed in the next update. Sorry for the inconvenience over. RT @co2_uk: This Gran Turismo 5 Bug Can Kill Your Game

 Thank you, Kazunori, for the communications and quickly addressing the issue. Until the game update is available, everyone should still check their game save file to insure they will not be affected by the bug before then.

 Over the past few weeks, many Gran Turismo 5 players around the web have reported a very serious bug in the game’s save file: once it reaches 4165KB in size, it can no longer be used. When the game attempts to load the file, the following (somewhat misleading) PS3 error message will be displayed:

 “Insufficient free space on hard disk drive (HDD). At least 32MB required. Please exit the game and free up some space. 0×00000015 [217]“

 As of writing, it is unknown if there is any way to get around this error message, reduce the file’s size, or recover your data. Until Polyphony Digital resolves this issue in a future update, follow these guidelines to minimize its impact upon your own game progress.

Check Your Game’s Save File’s Size

To see if your game save may be at risk, check its file size in your PlayStation 3’s XMB. Under the “Game” menu, select the “Saved Data Utility” and look for Gran Turismo 5 in the list of files that appear. You should see the file size listed immediately underneath the logo. If it’s anywhere near 4165KB, you will be affected by the bug very soon and should pay special attention to the following advice in this post.

While you’re in that menu, take this opportunity to back up your game save file. Just plug a USB “thumb drive”, external USB hard drive, or other memory card into your PlayStation 3, hit the “Triangle” button on the controller, select “Copy”, and choose the device you want it backed up to. This won’t prevent the bug from affecting you, but it may help you recover your data later.

Slow Down the Growth of Your Save File

As mentioned above, this bug cannot be avoided by anyone – your GT5 game save file will only get larger as you continue to play. Simply loading up the game will cause it to increase by at least a few KB or so, and other more significant actions, such as buying new cars or parts, will make it grow even faster. However, the most serious threat to your game’s save file is browsing through “museum cards”.

Viewing museum cards can increase your file size by as much as several hundred KB or more. They are automatically gifted to you on a daily basis by the game, but this is not what causes your save file to grow by such a large amount – you must actually browse through them to significantly increase the size of the file. Presumably, the actual content of the cards is being stored or cached within the save file when you read them, resulting in accelerated growth.

If your file is closing in on the 4165KB threshold, I strongly advise you to avoid loading the museum cards. Indeed, it would be wise for everyone to avoid the museum feature until we have confirmation this bug has been resolved.

It should also be noted this issue applies only to the game save file - not the “game data” installed to the hard disk. As such, though downloading a program from Gran Turismo TV or saving a race replay may increase your game save file by a tiny amount, their actual content is stored elsewhere and is not a concern.

Will This Be Fixed?

It is not known if Polyphony Digital is yet aware of this issue, or if it will be corrected in the next GT5 update coming February 18th. Many other PlayStation 3 titles have save files which far exceed 4167KB in size, so it is not clear why this particular game is affected – hopefully it will be an easy fix for Kazunori Yamauchi’s team. Even if players avoid the museum card feature, it will only be a short matter of time before this issue becomes an even larger problem for more people in the coming weeks.

New update is coming on Feb 18th. More changes, fixes, additions. Also, keep checking your save file size. If it gets to/over 4165kb it will stop working. The game won't load it. Using the museum pushes the size up loads so stay away from there.

It is meant to be weekly, but they didn't put the races up and all we got from Kaz was "taking a little break."... tbh I think it's punishment for the yanks fucking about cutting grass on the tracks.

Oh! And don't forget Setsuban.

Jonathan Woss apparently.

No, the cars are up but the events aren't. Kazunori tweeted (in response to 'where the fuck are the events?') that they're taking a little break. GT Academy is a mess atm too.

You should have made the poll a yes/maybe/no thing. I voted yes, and TF is here a lot of the time, but I wouldn't say he's here a lot more than any admin. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they're not doing their job.

I totally disagree with the notion of energy drinks. Doesn't stop me though. I'm running on Red Bull at the moment, and I've been relying on Coffee quite a lot.

Boris Becker is on this week. I'm not much keen on him :/ I really hope there's a Top Gear themed update with some more challenges and the old Reasonably Priced Cars. I'd rather have some Porsche's though. Just the good ones...

New Seasonal events are up btw. Easy 1.5 million if you've got an RM ZR-1 Corvette.

I'll give you one if you want... I plan on buying it, then gifting it to a friend, then building a time machine and going back in time to a point where I still had 20mil, then forcing my very happy friend to give it back to me. wink.gif I'm really curious about how they drive in comparison to the FGT. And it's a HUGE gip that the FGT isn't premium tbh!

Yeah, they make F1 20xx, but I think PD will give them a hard time this year. Remember in Prologue the F1 2008 is the "God Car" and was race-able? That was (making assumptions) possible because the contracts weren't properly settled and PD found a loop hole. I think they have to be given a fair chance.

Well don't buy the Ferrari F1 cars! They're not compatible in anything else except for Online & Practice... PD don't have the rights for F1 racing. Technically the Formula GT isn't an F1 car, it has things that are illegal in proper racing. Codemasters' F1 license is up the end of this year so hopefully PD will get hold of it and we'll see a nice fat DLC pack and some F1 challenges!

Can't send it today, I'll send it at 12-ish if I'm up. Swapped 5 chromes for a Prototype X2010 earlier. Oh yes.

lol, I'd make a second account to play with duped cars but the menu's in GT5 are so drawn out I just get bored and go back to racing normally. lol. What colour FGT did you get? I've got a green one... Apparently there's a all black / mostly black one around somewhere, I'll be kidnapping it and keeping it in a concrete basement when I find it.

Driving physics - No. The best physics I've seen on cars in a free-roam game is GTA IV. Not perfect, but oh so fun and close enough to the real thing.

As for the damage models, DRIV3R is still at the top spot for me. Not because they were the best, but because watching a car explode was so spectacular! You can do some really cool things in GTA IV with your car, but the things I did to cars in DRIV3R were amazing.

I'll send you one Dup... It's quite rare. One of the paints you get every 30 cars. Do you know how to dupe?

I'm Birthday car glitching, yes... Rarely. Wanted a 2J to finish Historic Car Cup B-Spec (Bob is a retard), but that's all really. I feel guilty glitching because I like to roleplay a lot in GT.

QUOTE (DuPz0r @ Jan 6 2011, 09:47 AM) *
The game looks good, there is no doubt about that. The only problems I've seen is in split screen. For some reason in split screen the graphics do look a little optimized. Other than that I've not noticed any bad car models...

And the answer to TreeFitty - Yes the game looks very nice when playing, but when taking photographs it does render within the engine producing better quality reflections, diffuse light motion blur and all those visuals.

But all game developers do this to advertise their games. They render images with-in the game engine and also at crazy resolutions, so when they compress them back to 1080p/720p they have incredible anti-aliasing. this is something i learnt at Uni wink.gif Look back at some of the first GTAIV screens or RDR screens. You will notice!

Exactly. It's to be expected. I certainly expected pictures taken in game to be 1000x better looking, I just figured the engine would put most of it's power into rendering those photo's, it doesn't however take away from the game play at all. The graphics are mind blowing, I adore playing it.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/GT5-pics/165499736820783 - Maybe of interest.
