    What feature is that? that you are making large leaps and bounds about in a vague statement that nobody knows anything about.

    "roughly translated" Japon to German to English what could go wrong :rolleyes:

    looking at the tyre symbols on the bottom left of the big screen, the right front tyre seems to be a different colour from the others, so maybe tyre temps are in this build of the game?

    I thought we weren't supposed to rely on these statements unless Kaz made the directly? I believe that was your caveat if I'm not mistaken.

    If we're to follow your logic, any statement is fair game. So this is a new feature only revealed to us late yesterday night, and that should make it a new version. So therefore the original promise of a new version of the software was met after all.

    What new feature? Can you please describe how it works in detail and a link for proof would be nice also, not that I don't take your word as gospel.

    Two words translated 3x does not make a new feature.

    Nice work. :tup:
    I agree that the front right tyre does seem to have a purplish hue.
    And that would be the first time I've ever seen tyre temps. represented.


    All of this bickering back and forth over the last days.
    All I've seen are a handful of still shots.
    And that brief clip of the bouncing R8 rig.
    I can only assume it's the same for everyone.
    How people are so adamant on their chosen stance with zero evidence either way is beyond me.


    @MrWaflz55
    Sorry mate, but it seems unlikely to me that the Campaign mode was unlocked at N24.
    But I do certainly agree, the last days of arguing were completely pointless.


    Edit.

    [​IMG]

    A few observations of that image.
    It looks to me like the old car symbol inside the tyres, not the segmented one we are now accustomed to seeing in the latest beta build.
    More importantly, I note a purple lap time in the top right corner, but the tyres still seem cold (not even that), except the inside right, and after a significant right hander.
    So perhaps it's simply a weird illusion because I'm struggling to make sense of it.

    Also, on another note.
    That looks suspiciously like someone driving the GT-R LM on the other screen.

    From the Gamescom PDF, you'll be able to warp to specific sections of the track, any car on any of the 19 tracks featured in GT Sport. It's incredibly specific to be a coincidence of translation, no?

    Just my opninion, nobody's forcing you to take my word as gospel.

    Or have the track design feature which allows you to copy and paste your favrorite/least favourite corner or complex which you can then use to form an oval or tri-oval.

    Imagine an oval with short straights using the two Midfield Raceway left-right-hairpins, or turns 1 & 2 of Apricot Hill, or four RBR turn ones (can't remember its proper name).

    I hadn't realized an interview in a Gamescom magazine was referring to the "never-before-seen" build found at the Nürburgring. That's a very unusual method to announce a new feature.

    The full (Google Translated) copy:

    And the interview with Yamauchi:

    If anything, I wouldn't even take that somewhat shaky translation as a conclusion of a learn-by-sector mode. We've already seen hints that the offline campaign could be very similar to previous GT games' licenses — those tend to deal with sections of track, too.

    It's certainly possible players will be able to pick and choose on their own. But this isn't 100% confirmation.

    Yep, I tend to agree.
    To my knowledge, "Circuit Experience" is suggested to have 35 events.
    With 19 tracks it would seem to me that the breaking down of certain track segments will obviously be available, but still quite limited.
    What options may or may not be available here is unknown I guess, but I'm not expecting a great deal of freedom to choose particular corners/sections of tracks.
    Only those offered in the menus.

    I'm a little happier rolling with the drift and slalom events.
    I assume this would be done via the "Mission Challenge" section, and with a supposed 62 events, that seems quite reasonable.

    Alright, so if this information isn't from the ring, then what's it doing in this thread?

    Pcars also has it in sections, as does Ride 2.

    However the one I like the most is the tourist version from AC.

    Better save that for another thread. I've had enough misinformation and arguing in this thread as it is, it's all this threads been so far.

    That's a fair call.
    And apart from the fact they both are from Germany, nothing. :sly:


    So what do you think of the "purple" tyre?
    It has me confused if I'm honest.

    But I'm intrigued by the image on the other screen.
    I see a white lap time box, a current lap time grey box, and a GTR-LM on track with people watching the action.
    I note @Matypanda posted "Gr.1 playable" earlier, but all I saw at the time was a replay or scape on screen and no people.
    But that screen looks a bit more positive confirmation to my mind.

    I still don't understand why we have almost zero footage from N24.
    So I guess dissecting images is all we have. :p

    Listen, if you're just looking to find thing to argue about, I suggest you find a better and more productive use of your time.

    Any particular reason??? Just curious, as AC is the game I'm least familiar with...

    Aside from the track being extremely accurate, the Tourist variant features the start from the tourist parking lot and you can't make a complete lap, because it's fenced off at one part. I made this video ages ago, showing it:

    It simulates how it would be at a normal tourist drive.

    That's the feature I want the most from AC in more games. It's an incredibly immersive experience instead of just pretending to drive a road car on the racing layout of the Nordschleife. More games need the Touristenfahren layout.

    As has been said it's the exact same layout you can go and drive as a member of the public.

    The timing even runs from bridge to gantry, which is the 'unofficial' timing start and stop points.

    You even have to drive from your car parking space, through the barrier and around the gates at the start.

    Not suitable for racing at all, but great for a road car track day.

    It just sucks that you cannot simulate a trackday with AI.

    I suppose so, it wouldn't hurt to have some motorcyclist AI either.

    But then everyone would just want another Tourist Trophy. :lol:

    You call it arguing, I call it filtering out false facts. You took two words and tried to make a story out of it just for the sake of promoting GTS.

    That's more than two words. I initially thought that this information was from the Nurburgring event because it was brought up in this thread. As @Tassie_tiger has pointed out, that's not the case. The argument is over and has been for a long time. Either it ends here, or I can report you both for not following @SlipZtrEm's directions.

    I was there and drove an improved Beta, they let me pick Time Trials (amongst race vs AI) and let me choose a difficulty (!) it could only be referring to physics, I guess and indeed, since I, of Course, tried the "professional" (the hardest out of three Options) it wasn't a Piece of cake keeping that LMP1 on the tarmac around the 'Ring. Yes, LMP1's where there. There was also a VR-set to try and I tried that one aswell, I have never before tried any VR, I didn't like it. It was a lap around Willow Springs in a Nissan GT-R, the track and car Combo was alright, but it's so pixeled, I think I'm gonna give this Technology 2-3 more years before I consider a purchase... The first rig was from a PS4pro and ran on a 4k compatible Sony TV, I asked the guy that worked there if this was running real 4k Resolution and he confirmed, but I take that with a grain of salt because those guys aren't really tech experts. I must say it looked really good, much better than the beta at home on my regular PS4 on a low-res-non-Sony TV at least. That's all I'm gonna Report about the Nürburgring GTS appearence.


    P.S. oh well one more Thing, the AI was very poor, rubber banded and didn't react to me at all, so still pretty much a AU (Artificial Unintelligence) though at least they ran a somewhat exaptable pace on "professional" or "hard" (can't remember what they called it) I was wishing for a fourth Option like "Alien" or something.

    P.S.S. Nürb 24h is such an amazing Event, i can only recommend coming to experience this, wherever you come from! Sorry for slight off-Topic in the end.

    Nice review!
    What LMP1 did you use?
    About 4K, I think Digital Foundry has already confirmed that the game actually runs at 1800p with that checkerboard rendering tech.

    Thanks, @Flaco13 so, that may have been the 'never seen before version' they were talking about. Could have been worded better, as something like 'never played before cars' but, whatta ya' gonna do? Obscurity is something 'unique' about PD and their reasoning (translations).

    I don't remember, maybe it was a Toyota. It definitely wasn't a Porsche though ;)
