Gran Turismo 5 Update 2.02: Many Changes, Available Now

December 19th, 2011 by Jordan

In a substantial update, Polyphony Digital has brought a wide range of tweaks, changes, and new features to GT5 with update v2.02. It’s available as a free download for all versions of the game, weighing in at 246MB.

Here’s a complete list of all the new changes, as released by Polyphony Digital:

Major Changes and New Features

  • Wheels can now be changed on Standard cars.
  • Downloadable contents can now be shared by multiple users with the Family Upgrade.
    (See Polyphony’s complete FAQ for more details.)
  • Cars purchased through DLC will now appear in the Car Dealerships. You can purchase additional versions of the same vehicles within the game using earned race credits.
  • A copy button has been added to the lower left of the settings screen. A settings sheet saved in either A/B/C can now be copied to A, B or C.

Gifts

  • Toyota 86 GT ’12 will be available to all players who install the 2.02 update.
  • Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or restore chassis rigidity in GT Auto. 10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update.
  • The Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SPL. and five New Car Refresh cards will be provided to customers purchasing any DLC packs released in October 2011. The New Car Refresh can be used from the Special Coupons option in the items list, and will return your car to its brand new condition (before breaking-in the car’s engine). Equipped parts and current paint on the car will not be affected by this card.

Other Improvements

  • Pressing the □ button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery, will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once (maximum number of coupons you can receive at once is 100).
  • Tire-wear speed adjustment
  • In GT Auto you can now see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application.
  • In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the □ button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the △ button will show the drivers list.
  • An option has now been added for ‘Max. number of participants – this is featured in the room settings of My Lounge.
  • Added ☆ marks which show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event, in the event selection screen of seasonal events.
  • Racing sound effect adjustment
  • Steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been adjusted. This applies to steering wheels with a 200 degree turning radius. The [Steering Type] (Amateur/Professional) settings in the Game Options will be ignored, and the controller’s steering angle will now directly affect the tire turning angle of the car.

Correction of Known Issues

  • Fixed issue where you would overrun without resetting, when entering pit lane at low speed on some tracks.
  • Fixed issue with Performance Points calculations for the Red Bull X2010 and the X2011.
  • Fixed issue where the rear wing/aerodynamic settings were reset when switching between setting sheets.
  • An issue was corrected where the car would become stuck in autopilot from the pit lane if a certain condition is met in an endurance race on the Tsukuba Circuit. Also revised the entry route during pit stops and speed judgement.
  • Improved multi-monitor stability

Where is the new DLC?

New downloadable content – in the form of 5 new cars – is also about to be released, though it is not yet available. According a tweet by Kazunori Yamauchi (and interpreted by our own Shirakawa Akira), it should be released on or before December 21.

As always, stay tuned to GTPlanet for more information on the DLC’s availability.

    Very nice greeting card, thanks!
    Much love Yamauchi Kazunori!

    YES! Finally! I remember the day the first DLC released I made sure to look up on Google before purchasing and I read people saying it was locked to one account but then Kaz said (I believe) that they would fix this if they could ASAP and those that bought it when it came out that would be given maybe some kind of gift when they fixed it or something like that so I purchased it and I haven’t even been able to play the DLC because I want to use it on my main account which unfortunetly I did not buy the DLC from (live in Spain and my copy is Spanish so needed Spanish DLC but my main account is American). Anyways thanks for this! Later today we get our second DLC and I finally can play my other DLC and the extras from update :D

    The FT-86 II has no interior view? It’s the standard interior…

    However, rest is great :P

      First of all it is the Toyota 86GT 12′ and it is a Premium car with the cockpit as the all Premium cars have. What game are you playing dude?

    • Dec. 21, 9:37pm

      Looks like he’s playing GT5, the one with the FT-86 II Concept ’11 that doesn’t have a modeled interior. You’re talking about a different car.

    Just downloaded it myself. So am I right in saying that changing rims on the standard cars means only being able to choose from the selection in GT Auto? You can’t change wheels like you could in GT4 where I could put NSX wheels on a GT-R and vice versa? I was really hoping to be able to put the rims from the standard ’89 R32 GT-R on the premium ’94 R32 GT-R V-Spec II because I prefer them to the V-Spec’s BBS rims. C’est la vie. However this update is another move in the right direction. I can’t imagine going back and playing the game at Version 1 again…. The small tweaks over the last 12 months have made it into the game we all hoped it would be on release.

    am i the only one who noticed that standards are remarkably better? lighting-wise and polygon-wise.. it seems they made a restyling..

    I truly love this update, the new Toyota 86 GT ’12, and everything else. :) The most part I really really love more, is the “Greeting card” from Kazunori and PD. :) I finally finished the “Real World Circuit” event at the Nurb with the new camera view, it rocks completely. :D The engine sounds and the other sounds have also been improved. :) I thought the grass was improved too. But really loving the update, especially the “Greeting card”, I’m touched. :’) Like everyone said, GT5 feels so complete now. :) I’m totally blown away. Thank you very much Kazunori and PD, and have very lovely merry Christmas and a happy new year. ;)

    New racing sounds is specially wind and tire.. if you watch inside car from co-driver position(staring to the right) you can almost not hear the car itself.. Only wind and tires.

    Can’t wait for more DLC! Hope they make some wheel DLC packs, would be great to have a selection like that of GT4 and GT3 and to have any wheel on any car.

    I got an extra car (GT86 Concept2012..I think!) for being a multiple purchaser of the DLC paint pack.

      Yeah you get the MKII Concept as well as the Production GT86 if you bought multiple DLC’s.

    I had left my 24 endurance race to continue at night from were I had last saved and wake up to find the Game update had loaded.

    Can I just add that it is now a whole game (and a years work) to change all the rims on all the cars that need it… lets make our way through the list!

    I hope I dont sound like I’m moaning because I’m actually loving it HAHA

    improvement to engine sound is awesome!!

  14. Dec. 20, 3:51am
    GT_lee

    Crash sound FX in chase cam sound a bit better there’s breaking glass (don’t think that was there before) and a couple of different tones of “kicked dustbins” :) Plus I think you can slightly hear the exhaust note of your car in the bumper cam (but only just!!) Overall a good job Just need to test all the different variations of exhaust to see if there’s a marked improvement when the tuned ones are used. (only used standard on the 86 GT)

    True SZRT…

    but then I went straight to the dealership and switched the rims on my RUF RGT and then I took my trusty Loctite NSX with almost 20000km of hard racing and made her all new again…all is well.

    Hats off for excellent update KAZ and the PD Team and for getting it out on time as promised. Merry Christmas, you guys rock!

    WTF is everyone talking about new camera? There is nothing new about it i tried the view outside the car (behind car) and going down hills or bumps there is nothing that i see that is “NEW”

    So what gives?

    • Dec. 20, 3:14am
      Ben Rogue

      Before the camera was fixed level, now it moves with the car over bumps on the track, its more fluid

    Slight disappointments…

    There are 2-3 set of rims that allow you to paint the wheels and keep the chrome lip (only available on select vehicles), these rims are not available on ANY Standards I’ve come across, most notably unavailable on the Supra RZ and the 3000GT VR-4.

    The Bugatti Veyron rims can’t be changed.

    Otherwise epic update…

    This gets me mad because i race online every week…..in the GT5 news section under the 2.02 update it describes a tyre wear issue fixed or similar but thats all it says about it,yet it describes the other updates twice over,please let us know how the tyres will be affected….or i could test,im too lasy to drive now,too fat and lasy

      @Witless76 I don’t mean really sell, but remove from our garage, because you can buy them from dealerships now so why not sell them if you don’t want 2 of them anymore

      FT-86 II concept ’11 has been in the game for ages bud.. in the Toyota Garage.. Do you mean the Toyota 86-GT ’12 (the new one) Sorry to be picky it’s only a little misktake but makes all the difference… :D

    • Dec. 20, 1:45pm
      Foxiol

      Well every post here has a mistake on it…lol… The old Toyota FT 86 concept ’09 is in the game and it is not the Toyota FT86 II concept 11′. (we have only the video of it but not the car itself in the game)

      NOW as a GIFT for all people who download the 2.02 update comes with the new car, Toyota GT86 ’12 and you can purchase it in the car dealership for 30000 cr. if you want more than one. But after this update you have this car ready to use.

      Those who purchased the first DLC as a gift receive the KART 125 SPL (black).

      And all the cars that you bought via DLC now are also available in the car dealership. And the upcoming DLC cars are already in the game but you can´t use it till you buy it. TOMORROW in the PSN Store.

      On the plus side, after I read add’s post, I went and checked my game. A couple of the remaining seasonals that I had allready completed suddenly handed me prize car tickets when I checked individual events from the main seasonal menu. Retroactive prizes apparently, for events that did not have them orriginally.

      Yes, that was rhetorical. It’s pretty obvious some people will never be able to do any of the above.

    Just raced on Spa with my Ford GT LM Race Car on Spa. The camera feels…different. It’s almost fluid-like and moves with every bump that you make in the road. It’s so cool. Also, that Holiday Card from P.D., I was like, “That’s so awesome!” I think with the experience I’ve had with GT5, I’ll continue to support this amazing company.

      well im right now at the laguna seca endurance race with the new 86′ 2012. started with racing soft tyres and did 15 laps of hard driving, which is kinda ok. then when to the pits and changed to racing hard tyres, and managed to do 30 laps of moderate driving. even before the update you couldnt get 5 more laps with racing hard tyres compared to racing soft tyres, so yeah, they fixed that one pretty good in my book. :)

    • Dec. 21, 7:13am
      YMG-7

      @armydude the 86 gt has about 200Nm of torque so may be it’s going easy on it’s tyres. but I’m now at le mans, with a 908 hdi using hard tyres, made 5 laps so far, and I bet they can’t do 5 more laps. which is the same as before. I did everything that I could to save the tyres longer; made 3’36.248 best with Traction Control at 9 (just to preserve tyres) but again they can not last longer than they did before. Racing soft tyres can last for 10 laps aswell with a best lap of 3’27.XXX… so racing hard tyres are still useless as far as diesel prototypes concerned.

    • Dec. 21, 7:25am
      YMG-7

      @armydude maybe they have standard (three for racing tyres, three for sports tyres and three for comforts) tyre wear formulas which they apply for all cars, however formula 1 racing tyres are different than le mans prototypes’ racing tyres or gt1 series’ tyres. they have to change that!

      The chase camera is COMPLETELY redefined! As you follow the car, you follow every bump and bank and jump your car makes…it’s like it’s imitating what your head would be doing if you were really driving. On the banking of Daytona, the whole camera angle is just as tilted as the car! It’s amazing!

    Looks like they changed the chase camera physics and added some wind noise.. very different feel to racing now, not sure I like it, makes me feel dizzy…

    • Dec. 20, 12:22am
      ADDiCT3D_2_BASs

      Woo see what you mean camera angle kinda moves the bumps in the road

    • Dec. 20, 12:40am
      Super_Colossal

      I was about to post something about that. In addition, the camera angles in replays have more dynamic to them, and when multiple cars pass close to eachother, their sounds are more distinctive. The map during a race is thicker. Wind sounds have been added to hood, roof, and bumper views. That’s what I’ve got so far.

    • Dec. 20, 7:13am

      From the article above:

      “Where is the new DLC content?

      New downloadable content – in the form of 5 new cars – is also about to be released, though it is not yet available. According a tweet by Kazunori Yamauchi (and interpreted by our own Shirakawa Akira), the new Car Pack will actually become available on December 21st.

      As always, stay tuned to GTPlanet for more information on the DLC’s availability”

      New Update – You can’t change wheels on every cars (special the great ones) – Why the rally cars have gravel ugly wheels??? Rally cars do run on 5 spoke wheels too – You know that??? Performance preview on aero parts – Bahhh – nothing special than performance points you see on your garage – I thought that they would put some plots Down Force vs Drag… I guess aerodynamics are some fake on GT5…

      Why the hell they removed the most Seasonal Events?? It was the only thing that kept me playing GT5….

      You guys whining at benjaminmach1 are jerks. He paid for the game like everyone else, he is allowed to express his opinions. You guys that are hell bent on screaming at every single person that expresses any sort of negative opinion, have ruined GTPlanet. This place is just not enjoyable to post on at all sometimes. It’s really disappointing because otherwise this is the only good place on the internet to discuss GT5. I wish Jordan would ban all of the annoying fanboys that never have anything constructive to say. Go back to your game and shut up.

      Its the people that complain about stupid things are ruining GTPlanet. People complained that standard cars could’nt have their wheels changed and then they complained it was’nt good enough when they got the option to change the wheels.

    • Dec. 20, 12:49pm

      It’s not about fanboys comments – this is just the opinion of customers. We have that right. When you wait years for a big game and spent 70€ on that game and the game don’t deliver all spec that hey have promised – then customers get pissed off because they have been fooled. If you like to throw your money into garbage, then that’s a different story.

      The customers are always right or you’ll lose them and your business.

      Look guys! I didnt want to cause any argueing on here it’s just my personal view! Personly on the game I like driving classic cars with the old school look! Not everyone would want that I know! But I don’t know why they would programme all the other wheels exept the American racing wheels. I’ve owned this game from the day it’s came out and can’t bring myself away from it! I would just like to see Kazonori focus on some older cars then just new ones all the time really! Like I said, this is my personal opinion which we our all intital to :)
