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

February 12th, 2011 by Jordan

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.

UPDATE 2: This bug was fixed in Gran Turismo 5 update v1.06.

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. 0x00000015 [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 and months.

To help raise awareness of this bug, I encourage you to pass a link to this page around and contact PlayStation Support. For reference, here’s a few links to discussions by players who have already been affected by this issue, both here in the GTPlanet Forums and abroad. Let’s hope this gets resolved soon.

    I just had this happen to me. Mar 8, 2011. After patch 1.08 for gt5 (to stop the ssr7 glitch) and ps3 system update 3.60 installed. wtf!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant even back up my game because 3.60 took that ability out because now they are forcing you to buy ps plus memberships. F!!!

      I don’t see how any one can reach that many KB. It could be that save file that was hacked before the fix, using another person’s save file would be my guess.

    Actually I did read the original article and *gasped* I had also read every post as well before your accusation of not knowing anything. My issue(s) are that they have continued to let things slip that should not have been an issue in the first place.

    my gt5 is being MEGA slow! its unbelievable how slow its being! i installed the latest update and about 2 3 weeks later, its suddenly barely working?! constantly freezing, taking a good 5 minutes to load up the game, keeps disconnecting me when i go to go online, could this be part of this aswell?

    I know that these file sizes seem large for a lot of people but it makes me wonder more about PDs lack of beta testers and trouble shooters. How could something like this seriously slip by?

    Does the team actually have employees playing their own game that they have failed to spot so many errors? If the dev team isn’t even playing their golden egg then that’s got to say something about how they feel about it.

    Patch it along with the other mess that has yet to be fixed. Shame on you PD…

      How can such an important game be so unfinished and I d even say unproduced ?
      In 10 years from now, we ll learn that GT5’s developpment was a total mess, just like it happens with some movies…

    • Feb. 14, 10:45am
      pudge

      Sorry, but it’s hard to see how beta testing would necessarily uncover this. I do software development for a living, and this is a bug that obviously requires a weird, and difficult, and very long-term, set of circumstances to uncover. As noted above, I have over 800 different cars, I am level 29 A-spec and level 40 B-spec, and I am not even at 2000KB let alone over 4000KB.

      How do you propose this would’ve been caught? It’s easy to say that testers should regularly document what they do each session, and note the filesize … but even if they do that, and find out that museum viewing bloats filesizes, unless they test museum viewing over a period of months, they will only know they have a problem with a slightly bloated save file, not that such a larger save file cannot be opened by the game. They would only bother to test larger filesize loading if they thought there might be a problem with it, and if they thought that, it would’ve been fixed before release, or in one of the early updates.

      And they already said it will be patched this Friday: did you not read the first few lines of the story?

      Shame on you for not knowing what you’re talking about, and for not reading the whole post.

      @Sam
      you COULD say unproduced… if you didn’t know that the definition of “produced” is made or manufactured, and adding the prefix “un” would mean it isn’t made or manufactured. that Gran Turismo 5 exists means, by default (and should go without saying), that it has been produced.

    yeah true.. “days” is the amount of how much your used car garage updates. means, every 2 race in A spec or B spec or even online, your used car lot updates 1/3 so yeah.. Days is not the real “days” in the calendar. anyways, I am really looking forward for the next update on friday which will include the gear ratio tuning!

    I happen to me.

    Used my PS3 for some family video with the new STORE app to see if it improved the quality.

    Whith this I ended with 14mb free space on the HDD.
    Loaded GT5 for a day play and got that message.

    Then I thought weird, but possible.
    The game can alloc 32mb for whatever reason.

    Didn’t damage the save or whatever in the game.

    By the way guys, my total “play time” is 1129 days. At 1st, i thought it’s weird but no it is not because I realized in GT4, every time you `SAVE`that counts as 1 day . so in a day, if you play 3 hours at the morning and 3 hours at the evening and the automatic save made 10 saves in each of that 3 hours, you will end up adding `20 days“ of your total play time in just 6 hours of gameplay. Basically if you have 1000+ or whatever playtime, that is normal. That symbolizes how many saves you had done.

    • Feb. 12, 10:26pm

      no days are not counted by the number of saves. every time your used car dealership has a new set of six “just in” cars, a day has gone by in GT5. im past day 2500.

    I was checking my Museum cards regularly a while back but have since stopped. I’m in work so can’t check the size of my (USB back-upped) save so I’m hoping I’m ok. After playing GT5 solidly since it came out I’d be furious if I did lose all my save data and no amount of “stop bashing Kaz & PD” would assuage my anger. THIS NEEDS SORTING ASAP PD.

      RPM is right. Polyphony was changing the style of Gran Turismo a bit since the style can’t always be old school. Why do you think PD made the bug on purpose? That’s just nonsense.

I know computer software can be huge beasts and bugs are almost enivitable, but I can’t help feeling that the developers are getting sloppy because they can say ” we can fix it if we have to with a patch”.

    I seriously wish people would leave the seriously tired cynical comments at home. It’s tiring to read through comments only to come across someone talking about PD and Kaz failing at something else, really does it make you feel better about yourself to be this pessimistic and cynical? Any way I’m about to check my game save size as I back up mine at regular intervals, I think it was about 567kb last time I checked. Reaching 4K will take a while, considering you will have to open every museum car, buy all the cars, read all the car info, race on every course in all layouts. Sounds like you really need to view everything in order to really increase your file size in a hurry.

    I really hate this unprofessianal attitude from PD and Yama, they are just living in another dimension now, life death cycles, corrupted save data, wonder what’s coming up next.. Sorry PD this is simply unacceptable, you are going to loose your reputation forever.

    Thank you Jordan for posting this as news! Hopefully it will bring more awareness and Sony/PD will get wind of it and fix this very severe bug in GT5.

    damn, this scared the bejesus outta me. i thought that jordan meant that this is a server glitch, whew. Last time i duped a car i think i was at like 317kb er sumthin like dat. im safe, for now at least.

    Is this bug something related to your life and death cycle? You and your crazy ideas! I cannot believe someone can risk to loose the game data just because you are experimenting BS in the game, you have to fix this unbelievable bug AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, no excuses.

    PD reputation is falling dawn so fast in these days… I simply cannot believe what’s happening now. I hope February will give us some fresh air. no BS no life/death, no deep thinking, just fix these ***** bugs and take a break, because you really need it Kaz.

      That is the most rational explanation for why this is happening I have heard.

    How would the Data recovery in the GT5 options menu relate to this bug? would it help in recovery if you received the error?

      I could be wrong, but I think the problem with that is you can’t start the game in order to use it.

    Thanks for the heads up about this Jordan.

    Just sent a link to a few of my GT5-Ing friends.

      Yes indeed thanks to Jordan, imagine how it would be without gtplanet make the whole world know about these insane bugs… I hope those crazy japanese developers will fix that ASAP

      Yeah, I’m at 1051 (Levels 30A/12B). I have nearly 200 cars, and was checking my museum about once a week. I wonder if Online adds greatly to it (I’ve raced Online about 5 times)?

    Over 90%! wow, I am only on about 70%. Oh well, just means I have a lot more racing to go, fine with me :)

    What are the odds this is a hangover from GT1 where the game wasn’t designed to read files over 4MB (as they were never gonna get that big on GT1-4) and nobody bothered to update it, or realise savefiles would reach these sizes in GT5?

    700-odd days and mine’s around 800kb.

    I had to re install the game because it kept crashing. Reminds me of a pc.

    I have a feeling this will be spread across many blogs as the end of the world.

    I would check our friends kotaku if I could stand the interface.

    • Feb. 12, 4:05pm
      Christian

      I can not stand the new interface of that group of blogs. And i’ve thought that Gizmodo’s content quality has been on a decline too. Although, i bet if i can get used to the new interface i’d like it more.

      that was unrelated

      Nice to see I’m not the only person who doesn’t like Kotaku’s new look.

      This is a worry, and I hope PD find a fix for it. I won’t be looking at those museum cards again anytime soon.

    • Feb. 12, 4:27pm
      Scott

      I’ve also stopped going on Kotaku. Content has really decreased in quality and new interface just made decision easier.

    • Feb. 12, 5:10pm

      Yeah Gawker sites were pretty much a daily stop for me until they changed the interface, I don’t go to them anymore.

      Not only are they ugly and confusing but because of my adblocking measures they either only partially load or take forever to load.

    • Feb. 12, 5:35pm
      GT5Canuck

      Heck, I disliked the old interface Kotaku had…every page took 30-90 seconds to load. Made surfing the site insufferable.

    • Feb. 12, 5:40pm
      lol

      Hehe, I only got broadband because GT5 was coming. Before that it was 56k dialup. Up untill 4 months ago I would have thought 30-90 seconds was a unusually fast day…..

      Sounds like the HD was on it’s way out to begin with, and GT just gave it the final push. Would’ve happened soon anyway.

      Ive been using old motorstorm 80Gb with cardslots. I keep it on all day and all night for grinding on BSpec endurance. It sounds like a hairdryer but its all good still

    I’ve only had the game since Christmas day, and I’m already at 2080kb, 400cars, 98% complete.
    I was working hard on collecting the museum cards though, so I was speeding the process up quite a bit.

    Patiently, patiently, patiently waiting for my wife to stop watching her British house flipping show so I can boot up the PS3 and check the file size. Grrrrrr.

      Pretty much the same story here except i’ve been at it from release day, and my file is about 200kb larger. Better leave the museum alone for a bit…..
