Gran Turismo Update 2.07 Released

June 1st, 2012 by Famine

Following the Gran Turismo network maintenance this morning (01.00 – 03.00 GMT/UTC), a small game update has been released.

Tagged as v2.07, the update weighs in at just 2,193kB and, as expected from an update of this kind of size, consists of a bug fix:

An issue was corrected where a pit stop was not possible in the Special Stage Route X Oval course (as included in the Speed Test Pack DLC).

Although there may be other, unannounced tweaks, users should expect nothing more than this correction, characteristic of Polyphony Digital’s continued support of their title. Thanks to all on our forums who alerted us to this.

    I just got the 2.07 and 2.06 updates, and GT5 froze up, so I ejected the disc, and now my PS3 won’t read ANY disc I put in it. I don’t know what the problem is.. Need help.

    I got the 2.07 it is over a gig in space. Probably because I didn’t get any of the other updates so that’s why it is so big :-p

    has anybody noticed since 2.07 that when you are closely following another car or just leaving the pits at the right angle there is a audible sort of hi pitched noise that doesnt belong there i only say this because ive never noticed it before and because ive tried everything on my TV to eliminate it it persists… ie. equaliser sound modes turning it up turning it down nothing works the best wat to describe it is a sound that doesnt belong there and once you hear it you will know its really distinctive

    This update screwed up the physics!!! So i was practicing with one of my cars running consistent 1:52.5xx with SM tires and after the update my car in the same setup is running two+ seconds slower at 1:55.37x and the car feels like i’m driving on GT5’s ice covered gravel the car isnt sliding in just the front or rear the whole car slides(rally style 4wd dirft) which is not suppose to happen when i have dialed in the car to be pin point and have enough grip to avoid sliding and it really makes me want to toss gt5 and my ps3 into the trash GT5 has been a headache sense day 1 i all of a sudden feel stupid for spending the 400 bucks i spent on my ps3 for this game and not to mention pd can’t stay true to there word’s kinda like our Government i wont be buying a ps4 and i sure as hell wont buy GT6 if GT5 is any indication of whats to come in the future.

      @DuskTrooper
      That’s not what he means. Stating problems with the game is one thing. The way(s) some of these guys go about expressing their feelings about the collection of problems is taken too far to still consider it constructive criticism. On a forum that doesn’t let us use bad language, I think some of those people need to learn some decency in the way they go about expressing their thoughts and opinions.

    If pd are wise this is a rolling testbed for gt6 which should be released with the ps4 launch ! Otherwise they need to go to turn 10 to get some ideas because the length of time this game has absorbed is simply daft if sony want to get ahead in the next gen war .

    • Jun. 5, 5:58pm
      Nosalis

      true.. Forza has some nice ideas in it, but when I think about it, really the only thing I would port from forza is the livery editor .. though I would hope to make it somewhat better/easier to use..

      some people say GT has better cars, Forza has better tracks. I agree with GT having better cars, but forza doesn’t win in wiht the tracks for me … yeah, they don’t have the “old style” trees .. bun inlike GT they usually have fewer textures on the ground (might be limitation of xbox) .. whereas GT has great variaty in everything

      if GT6 has livery editor, option that more cars could be race modified, remove standart cars (even when it means they will have to go to 400-500 cars instead of 1000) .. then I will be more then happy!

      btw. if PD release GT6 on PS4, then it’s likely take longer then if they released on PS3

      SSRX has it uses as intended. Great way to benchmark my cars acceleration and top speed vs distance in various ways. Also great for online and one make high speed runs, especially since the Mercedes SL600 2004 finally showed up in my UCD. I quickly added it to my almost 500 car garage(small).

    Now let’s fix the sound bugs that 2.06 brought us. I can’t hear my cars most of the times regardless of my setup. Tried with 5.1 surround, 2 channel stereo, 4 channel stereo; also tried playing with the game’s settings and even ending up unplugging everything and using the tv speakers. No success.

    Also, fix the music in at the Redbull Hangar. It sounds like the music is being played by two different sound systems, but at different times.

    As for this bug, I didn’t even noticed that SSRX had that problem…

    • Jun. 1, 3:17pm

      I had same problem. Go to sound settings and turn off dts keeping 5.1 on. Waahla, sound!

    It is surprising to me that so many people would complain about a free update to a great game that has been out for so long. Just in case PD does watch these threads here I my biggest grips, but I can certainly deal with them. I think everyone would benefit from them and end up playing more.

    1. An all cars tab. I really don’t care if a car is “premium” or not, I’m going to race what I’m fastest around the track with
    2. A filter option for: <=300pp, 301-400pp, 401-500pp, 501-600pp, and over 600pp
    (A filter for street/production cars (excluding concepts) would also be VERY NICE)
    3. Online filter rooms by pp
    4. Online filter and a special track for drag racing
    5. Online 30 second to race warning when you are tuning (I shut music off, but i think it changes before the race starts)
    6. Ability to change cars within Practice mode
    7. Paint shop, disable and grey out options that are not available before you can click on them
    9. Show torque along with hp in car list
    10. In basic tuning have an option to buy all upgrades and tires at once. It just hurts game play when I get several new cars and can't drive it without tuning it for 20 minutes.
    11. Another tuning preset for the "stock" setup

    Also, keep track of my best laptimes and cars regardless if it is a practice, seasonal, or online race.

    • Jun. 1, 2:45pm
      skyrunr10k

      PS Online drag racing track would have a Christmas Tree and a burnout run. ;)

      PPS I’m sure there are enough people playing seasonal events at any given time to race against actual players. Even 3-4 mixed in would be great.

    • Jun. 1, 3:54pm
      Z Crazy

      Of that I would love to see these.

      3. Online filter rooms by pp (and the ability to use PP and power to weight at the same time in room settings)
      4. Online filter and a special track for drag racing
      5. Online 30 second to race warning when you are tuning (I shut music off, but i think it changes before the race starts)
      6. Ability to change cars within Practice mode

    • Jun. 1, 5:45pm
      Rynogtr23

      With the exception of a proper warning to alert someone who’s tuning that the race has started, ALL those other ideas are completely and utterly absurd. I know Kazunori & Polyphony Digital aren’t foolish enough to even entertain the thought of applying those ideas to GT5.

    • Jun. 1, 9:15pm
      belovedconsole

      I agree with most in Skyrunr10k’s list, and he is only asking for filing/menu mods. This should be nothing to add programming-wise. These requests highlight and yet fix some very annoying “suspension of fun” characteristics typical of parts of the GT5 experience. My favorite? “Ability to change cars within Practice mode.” I want to drive a car on a track I made (I actually LOVE the track editor), and then quickly switch over to a similar car. Because I’m always enjoying the different characteristics between cars, but on the same track. I only drive 1-2 laps then I switch out. But when I have to exit out of a bunch of menus just to get to my garage? It makes you wonder why they didn’t put more emphasis just on the filing characteristics of the game– their menus are arranged craplike to accomodate an inefficient filing system.

    • Jun. 1, 10:12pm
      Dekropttiv

      That’s probably the most realistic list of wants for GT5. They’re all great ideas and seem extremely reasonable. Little things like that can make a huge difference!

      Quakebass

      You see, this is a point I’ve been putting across for a while now… PD should be looking more intensely at GTPlanet, and see what people REALLY want, and start doing incredibly simple things (as stated) that will increase the replay value and refine gameplay. They’ve done it before, just a bit sporadically. New cars don’t increase much replay value, having more things to do WITH them DOES. I’m talking tuning, game modes, tracks, and other features (like a basic livery editor, more events [aside from seasonals], and more track editor parameters, more rims and more aero kits/race mods). All of these seem reasonable, except for MAYBE the basic livery editor. I wouldn’t mind paying for ANY of those. I LOVE the support they’ve given us so far, but there’s PLENTY of BETTER things they could be doing.

    IDT Sony is in any hurry to release the PS4. I also think our games will no longer be sold to us on disc once we see the PS4.
    They may want to let Microsoft get their feet wet (or sticky) first. Gaming formats and technology is going to make a big change in the next year or two.

    The entire gaming focus will be on “Open Source” software. Just like LINUX, except we’ll be pulling/renting stuff from the GT5 servers or NFS, or BF3/4 servers. No more disk except for maybe backward compatable stuff. Hopefully some of the older games will be ported. There is a chance our investment in games will take a hit.

    The game will look just like GT Academy does now. But the graphics and sound will blow you away. Also, because of the introduction of open source business model, we’ll no longer have to worry about not having certain cars because of Microsoft.

    The memory on the console will be used more for video and network adapter performance.
    The video and I/O speed will be on par with the best gaming PC you can build. Gonna be sweet…IMHO.

      At first, I wanted GT6 on the PS4, but now I feel GT6 will be on the PS3, though I still would prefer GT6 on the PS4. :)

      The Course Maker, graphical inconsistencies, physics, AI – just so many things will be easier to do/run on something with more power. I’m not sure if most people understand that the AI and physics both take up a lot of memory to run. The smarter the AI is and the more powerful the physics engine is, the more memory that gets used. I only have an understanding of that, but not any serious knowledge.

      AJ, I’ll wager a precious New Car Refresh ticket that GT6 will indeed be on the PS3. Granturismodotcom’s June 1st news article regarding GTacademy quotes Kaz as saying it is “along our path from GT5 to GT6” so its clear to me PD could squeeze out enough processing power from the ol’ dawg. Heck, I’ve been playing Midnight Club again and despite the dreadful physics, Rockstar produced decent AI in a dynamic city with .. livery editor; perhaps PD need to poach some of their staff.

      Dead right Husky, I might just stick to ZX Spectrum emulators if that happens lol!

    • Jun. 1, 4:25pm
      Meatwad67

      Well tube chaser, I’m pretty sure you’re right. They usually release GTs in twos for each iteration. If you look back at the previous GT games; GT and GT2 on the PS, and GT3 and GT4 on the PS2. So, more than likely, they will follow suit by releasing GT6 for the PS3.

      it’s like Jakhole says

      it’s always finding a balance between all the game elements.. if you want all the game elements to be the best in the field, you usually need better hardware for it, which is not possible on console (until cloud gaming .. but that’s imo still long before it wil happen on serious level)

      so they could have sacriface on the graphic/shaders for the cars and improve AI, add livery editor etc. .. but wouldn’t people complain that the cars don’t looks stunning?

    Hello, semi new here, joined last week, lol, I was one of the first to have the no pit stoppability(?) issue and I mentioned it on the OTHER forum, the one with the typists (not drivers), and was denounced as a bad driver/quack. But I`m glad it was addressed.
    I`m driving a LM Camaro right now and the sound seems to be re-adjusted, but I was having the loud (other car) problem, which again, I was discounted.

      Yep 2.06 scrambled the sound, especially for those using Dolby Digital or 5.1 7.1 sound processing.
      I hope they fix it. Because it was really good prior to 2.06. Even adding exhaust and transmission did not destroy the engine sounds. It was freaking awesome. I really hope the Ninja Edit that one.

      Hey “jackhole”

      The track I really want more than anything is Special Stage Route 11. I found out it was pulled from GT3 and the games that followed because it was a memory hog. But man, what a track that was. I really hope they find a way to bring it back. Those not able to see GT1 and GT2 games would really love this track. Those who did see GT1 & 2 know what Im talking about. Simply awesome course.

      another_jakhole

      I don’t know about the best, but definitely they are the most dedicated and least deserving of all this anger and hate they receive. All, because they took too long getting the core of the game to a high enough level. That includes the physics, graphics.

      Something that must have been really time consuming and something that seems to be overlooked by GT players was getting the physics of driving on rain, dirt, and snow (and karts) in a game with as much depth/variety to it as GT5. A lot of people believe it’s quantity over quality with GT5, but it saved PD a lot of time to NOW focus on adding simpler to produce content and features.

      Usually there isn’t… ever since DLC started being released, people got addicted to that concept, and started saying “controversial” things (to put it lightly) that they hadn’t been saying pre-DLC, and it slowly kinda changed the mood of the community. I don’t know if you’re new here or not, but if you are, just watch the reaction to a DLC. The entire community lights up and seems happier. But really, if you compare GTPlanet to YouTube, this an incredibly peaceful and intelligent fanbase… Look at a GT5 YouTube video comments section, and see how many people speak with all caps, start flame/console wars, troll, and some even ask “What’s a Standard car?”

      @tubechasr girls in teeny white shirts? this is still a family game. instead change the rim and wing models in gt auto and drop the whole animated auto garage workers alltogether. better yet, let me change oil (wash car) in my garage and buy the rims when i buy my tires in the parts section. aero kit where i lighten car.

      “In all seriousness, where is SSR-11?”

      It’s the long Special Stage Route with rain. Is that what you mean? It’s in Japan (Tokyo? maybe) if THAT’S what you were asking.

      @anothe _jakhole I think your refering to Special Stage Route 7. SpecialStage Route 11 was in GT1 and GT3, with small differences in both game versions but alas did not make final track call for GT4 or GT5.

      if GT5 was an EA game, the public game servers would be shut down by now, because everyone would be playing only this game, nothing else, and thus not generating other revenue to EA.

    The update process is not going to end. The only theoretical end would be when the game is perfect.
    We all know you strive for perfection, but it’s never really found.

    The fact that Kaz seeks to perfect the game is what we should all be grateful for.
    It means the game simply won’t die because he will always look to perfect it.

    Subject change: Kazunori is currently tweeting with Honda Motor Company. Wonder why?

    Wish they’d fix the slow network problems (or whatever is causing the single-player game to ocassionally take so long to save). I actually had it lock up on me yesterday – after a race it just sat there on the “GT” screen forever. Had to do a hard reboot and I sure am glad they added the duplicate save file because doing that apparently corrupted my first one.

      I’m getting this now; after the update. The game locked up on a GT load screen 1st attempt. Second attempt it took a good 5 minutes to get to my GT home page, it even took a couple of minutes to let me move the cursor after the login bonus popup. What’s going on here?

    Technically, they should be done in november 2012. They (PD) said that they needed another 2 years.

    I wonder what will happen after that. I guess Kaz and his crew have priorities.

    • Jun. 1, 11:55am
      another_jakhole

      “When asked if GT5 is so big that it will be released in ‘stages’, Kazunori responded ‘The effect of complexity and size to the development time is very big. Practically speaking I would have wanted another two years of development time.'”

      Two years of updates and two years of development time are pretty different. There’s only a select team that works on GT5 updates, while the rest of PD is working on GT6. If GT5 weren’t out yet, they’d be able to do all the updates we’ve had in half the time with the Standards being improved in a quicker time too.

      I think we’ll have a better idea of how much longer they’ll be updating the game after we’re able to get Twin Ring Motegi and the GT Academy cars. I find that only getting Twin Ring Motegi as payable DLC isn’t enough. I think there’s more to it.

    • Jun. 1, 8:27pm
      Quakebass

      ^ To add to what you’ve said, PD hasn’t had their full workforce on GT5, even at it’s release. So even if they had the “theoretical” 2 extra years and it was possible to update GT5 like it would’ve if it was still under development, it would still take longer than 2 years because of low workforce in the GT5 department. I’d actually like to know what percentage of PD’s workforce is on what; also if they have a separate “GT5″ team, and a separate “GT Academy” team. I’d imagine it’s the same team, for everything is the same between the two games, excluding the leaderboards.

      I wouldn’t mind a new GT-R, as long as it doesn’t look or feel much like anything we already have; I’ve got a feeling that this new GT-R will perform a lot like the previous car used at the Nurburgring 24 hrs, just slightly quicker. I don’t mind if we get it or not, frankly, I’d rather have new features or tracks, but I’ll accept anything they throw at us.

    • Jun. 1, 6:50am
      YMG-7

      this because they published the game before it actually finished, they have continued to developing the game after they have pulished/sold. so this is not support or “not giving up” as you say, this is just finishing a job.

    • Jun. 1, 6:52am

    • Jun. 1, 7:03am
      SimonK

      Indeed, you can’t really count things like this as updates, they’re just fixing the fixes, and very small ones at that. About four have been like that and only inflate the overall number when other companies would have bundled them into one update, or got it right the first time.

      Also like most of the PS3 firmware updates of the last two years, many of the updates have been pretty worthless for most people.

      Stop with the duplicates talk. Look at GT4. It’s the same thing. It’s not only characteristic of GT5 since there were so many duplicates in GT4 too. At least they didn’t leave the Standards like they were at the beginning of GT5.

      Yes, PD needs to keep quiet about GT6….. GT5 was too over published and overexposed before release. They shot themselves in the foot. And as far updates go,…. I don’t see them as something to brag about, just shows how broken the game really was, or how out of touch PD was with the community

      Cool beans! Guys like you wouldn’t have expected PD to support GT5 this long WHILE improving the Standard cars’ appearances (you “guys” said it was in our heads over a year ago) and some people are still saying PD isn’t doing enough and MUST communicate with us.

      They’re not something to brag about except for that it reveals the level of support PD could only show in the past with GT5 Prologue, and we know that GT5 was released without Kaz wanting to release it meaning that it was released too early, regardless of how long it has taken.

    • Jun. 1, 1:40pm
      another_jakhole

      That’s the thing, they didn’t even need to update the “demo” that is GT5 Prologue. What makes people think PD needed to update GT5 after Spec 2? We’re all only guessing what PD had in mind for GT5, because ever since Spec 2, we’ve been getting some things people have been asking for.

      @L8erBaby:

      So obviously you didn’t read my comment correctly, because that’s exactly what I had said; A PC game’s likely had more updates that GT5, but GT5 is likely the most updated CONSOLE game.

      @ tiger61378:

      You’d be surprised at how fun a Route X Endurance race can be, especially if you’ve got 11+ opponents all with just about equal performance; you end up teaming up with slower cars (because you’ve set your transmission to a ridiculous top end and don’t accelerate so well towards the beginning) to reach the higher end cars, and eventually (if you make the race long enough) you’ll run low on fuel, and may lose tire strength (but that’s only a slight worry on the big banked corners), so there ends up being a whole lot of strategy involved, just with a different skill set. Much like NASCAR has a different skill set.
