    Downloading now, 1255mb. I guess I'll check to see if the 20mil "trick" still works.

    Hopefully this fixes whatever issue is causing both the stockyard wipes and corrupt saves (happened 3 times to me, luckily I always backup saves).

    Will update post in a bit.

    Patch details:

    Gran Turismo 6: Red Bull X Challenge goes live today

    Consecutive Login Bonus
    When you login online for consecutive days, a bonus to all credits awards will be added for each consecutive day: 110% for the 1st day, 130% for the 2nd day, 140% for the 3rd day and so on, until you will receive 200% bonus on the 5th day. Be sure to login every day to earn more credits!

    Credits earned in Career Mode increased
    The amount of credits earned in Career Mode have been increased. Rewards for Novice Class races have been raised to approximately 110%, for National B Class up to approx. 130%, for National A Class to approx. 140%, for International B Class to approx. 150%, for International A Class to approx. 160%, and for Super Class they have been raised to approximately 170%. This may give good incentive to go back and try some races you’ve already cleared!

    Entry requirements for Seasonal Events lowered
    The requirements to enter Seasonal Events have been changed. Now players will only require a National B Licence in order to participate (previously they needed a National A Licence). Following this Update and only for a limited time, there will be unique special events that will award cars as prizes, so don’t miss this opportunity, and remember to login online!

    Bonus Events within Seasonal Events
    From 20 December 2013 3:00AM GMT to 17 January 2014 3:00AM GMT the Seasonal Events will host a special bonus event. If you obtain a Gold award in all events, the credits reward will add up to 3,000,000 credits, and combined with the Consecutive Login Bonus, this can multiply to a maximum 6,000,000 credits!

    Furthermore, a second bonus event is planned to be held from 2 January 2014 3:00AM GMT to 30 January 2014 3:00AM. Again, this event will allow you to win up to 6,000,000 credits when combined with the Consecutive Login Bonus, so if you participate in both special events you could earn up to 12,000,000 credits!

    We hope you will enjoy these unique events during the seasonal holidays and into the New Year!

    *Please note that the entry period of the bonus Seasonal Events is 4 weeks in total, but the online rankings will only be recorded for the first 2 weeks.

    Wahey. I wish they would inform us what the fixes are, or we'll have to keep doing their regression testing for them.

    Would be nice if somebody can check if the "Ascari-Method" still works. As i have the PSN Version i didn't wanted a Download and Installing Marathon for the 20m Glitch, so I used the Ascari Glitch to make money. Thanks in advance.

    There is probably a log in the notifications sections once you get back in game. I am still on 1.01 and it says "maintenance" when I try to access the notifications. Starting the update in a minute or so after I have backed up my save again.

    Does anybody know if it ruins the 20 mil glitch? Are 20 mil cars now unsellable? Have they lowered the credit limit?

    It adds vettel driving school stuff, brings back login bonuses and increases offline payouts.

    So much for all the microtransaction nay sayers.

    Finally, as a bonus to players who participated in GT Academy 2013 – this update will provide a very special gift, the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 N24 as raced by Yamauchi-san himself at this year’s Nurburgring 24H race.

    I hope they fixed the glitch. Credit pay outs in career are higher now... so yeah pretty sure they fixed the glitch.

    I'm also slightly shocked that presumed "GT fans" used the stupid glitch so freely.

    Just went to install it and got the three beeps reset...

    Looks interesting, though, especially if they can keep the flow of content up. Feel bad for those who struggle with internet connectivity for whatever reason. Welcome to the future of gaming, I suppose. :indiff:

    Digital copy? lol

    They should thank to the guy who discovered and published the glitch. They didn't write the code correctly.
