Third consecutive post and still no activity on here... sad.gif

This should be more interesting then.

The Thrustmaster T500RS - Gran Turismo 5 - Official racing wheel is out now. It's meant to be one of the most realistic racing wheels out yet. But it comes with a heavy price tag! Which is $599.99 US, Which is £387.16 but will most likely turn out to be £399.99.

And here is a video un-packaging and review of one:

already got a G25... not getting anything new unless it breaks.

That wheel seems good but i dont think its worth the price of 2 G27s...

Got GT5 for Christmas this year, started playing it a few days ago. I was amazed at how perfect the car handling feels - I didn't think anything would be able to beat GTA4 for me but this really pisses on its posies. At the moment I'm just enjoying collecting cars and bombing them around the High Speed Ring on practice sessions.
My favourite so far is the JZX100 TOM'S Chaser that popped up in the used cars section yesterday. Even unmodified it's an insane drift car.

Nice find. I've not found any decent cars in the used dealership in a while. I either get really shit cars in the 5,000.c region or hyper expensive Le Mans cars for around 4,000,000.c I've wanted the BMW 2002 Turbo '73 since i started it. I've never seen it in there though! I saw one in white in a trailer somewhere, so i know it's in the game.

I've just found this useful list of used cars and what day they will be in the dealership:

Unfortunately it only goes up to day 131 and I'm already well past that. But if you wanna catch some rare beauties early on, then have a read through that spreadsheet.

dont waste your money and time looking for it!

You'll get a 0 KM 2002 Turbo when you beat the DTM series. (Its in A-spec Extreme) so i think you have to be level 21 or something close to that.

Is it just me or is the <350bhp rally tarmac special event stupidly difficult?

Got gold on the dirt and snow ones first time but can't even get close to bronze on tarmac. Tried so many cars (Impreza's, Evo's, M3, Ferrari's, to name a few) but it's just ridiculous >.>

Even did up the Elise you win from the Top Gear special event which corners like a fly on speed but still not even close ohmy.gif

Think I might just give up, got gold in all the other rallies so sod it >.<

Have you tried it in the Lancia Delta or Stratos? I haven't got the Stratos, but i may mod my delta up and try that.

BMW 2002 Turbo '73 is sweet! Haven't been on for a while because I've been busy, plus the missus has had a few rare days off work which means it's only fare to let her play Sims 3.

yeah, that one is the hardest... i also got gold on the 2 others easily but that one took me a few tries... i cant remember right now which car i used to beat it but i remember that it felt a lot easier than when i tried with my R33 skyline GT-R or bmw 135i... ill check my garage and see if i can remember

Totally just blew c985,000 on a rally Renault 5.
DuPz0r
Was it worth it?
asthenia
Totally. I love the Renault 5. I have 2 of them in game.

Bought the FGT last night, Bob is enjoying it.
DuPz0r
It's my birthday in a few days so i should get a gift car, i wonder what car I'll get from 1987...
DuPz0r
Who wants a Lancia STRATOS? i have one if anyone wants it...
asthenia
I have a Stratos I think... Why don't you trade it on GTPlanet forums?

Ps. Is anyone here rocking chrome paint yet?
DuPz0r
No is there an easy way to get it?

Anyone rocking the birthday car glitch?
asthenia
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.

I also birthday'd the 2J.

I have mates that keep duping cars and sending me them without me even asking lol. I got a Gran Turismo F1 the other day.

That chrome paint would be nice cheers biggrin.gif
asthenia
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.
DuPz0r
I got a navy blue coloured one. Looks pretty mank to be honest with you. But it's the only f1 car i have, so i cant complain.
asthenia
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!

That'd be cool.
But don't Codematsers create a line of f1 games each year, meaning there will be a new contract lined up before anyone gets there noses in?
asthenia
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.
DuPz0r
Sounds good. We'll have to see then. Until then i wont be wasting any money on that car smile.gif
asthenia
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!

Forgot I had GT5 until now, just watched John Bishop become the fastest driver ever round the Top gear test track in the reasonably price car. Go on my son!

That was fantastic! I love John Bishop.

Yeah, i saw that. Great run.

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.
DuPz0r
Who's on Top Gear this week?

Anyone know if any new seasonal events are up yet?
asthenia
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.
DuPz0r
Ah i see. So they aren't going to be a regular weekly thing? I thought it was meant to be a Christmas/New year event to start with, but they carried it all the way through to February... That everyone expects it to update every week.
asthenia
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.
DuPz0r
Anyone watch Top Gear this week? I liked the look of those hatchbacks Clarkson was driving. It's nice to see the Cosworth label back in action.
I Made Your Mom In GMod
^Really liked the looks of that insane Volvo, shame they're not going to be making any. sad.gif
Although probably they will since tons of people watch TG they'll get enough requests to make a few. Really awesome looking car.
Sorta disapointed by Top Gear recently though. They jumped the shark tank a season or two ago to be honest - I thought they were back on form with that awesome Christmas special but I nearly turned off when they 'killed' James May at the end of the last one. It's all got a bit silly for my tastes.

On a side note, anybody got any Toyota/TRD/TOM's 'Dark Green Mica' (looks sort of black)? I'm thinking of giving my Chaser a lick of paint - the silver looks like arse.
If I've got anything anybody wants I'd be happy to trade.

Also,

Nice Alfa btw.

I found a really nice colour grey the other day. I think it was called Moon Rock Metallic which was sort of chrome looking with slight bluish, brownish tints.
I Made Your Mom In GMod
My bad, didn't notice that thread.

I think Moon Rock is a Honda colour, comes on the S2000 and some Civics. Alas I have none to give away, but it would look fairly kickass on a car with black wheels.

The 7th seasonal events are up btw, but no major exp or cash payouts. They've also made a few changes to race events because of the high volume of cheaters... :/

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.

GT5 Bug Can Kill Your Game

This is mental. Dunno if any of you guys have seen it!

What tyres were they? They didn't half stand up to a beating, I've owned 4 Fiestas in my time but never one that could hit 0-60 in just 1.9 secs. I'm robbing a bank this Tuesday, wonder how much he'd charge to be my getaway driver?

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.
