    2.12 screws over all your modded cars.

    It's either pass on the update and keep your mods, or update and have access to online. Such a terrible way to handle this situation.

    Well, this guy is reinstalling up to 2.11. I was spending more time on my own tickering with mods. Online was dying for me, so I'm sticking to 2.11 and I'll play wait and see on any future editions.

    I'm going to give that a try

    When you're updating, you're updating the Game Data, which is shared across all accounts on a single PS3. Hence, there's no advantage in having multiple accounts.

    WOW They killed it, no surprise as 90% on the rooms online had BS going on in them, makes me not feel so bad my JBPS3 is PSN Banned anyways. Im keeping my Bridz

    I believe this is probably the last of the GT series for me, at least until they release a full game, Im getting sick and tired of paying for incomplete games, and now them yanking the best thing in GT. NEXT!!!!! Forza is looking better and better every day.

    have you checked if it leaves the engine swaps alone, but kills the HP multiplier?

    The swapped engines get removed sadly. My Civette has lost it's Corvette engine, and now has a fully maxxed out default engine. From 600HP to a measly 400HP. :yuck:
    Very disappointed with PD at the moment.

    I just read that the Super Soft tires are still working. Nice. way to let the actual cheaters go about their business and destroy the hard work of fans.

    Disgusted is an understatement.

    BTW, I'm awake because I'm reinstalling the game data. Screw online.

    Reinstall your Game Data, but stop before it downloads update 2.12.

    Just be aware of the risks and what you'll lose in doing so.

    anybody tried to re-hack a car, do a engine swap or something? Have they blocked the saving of the swapped parts?

    What a bad move from PD. Although deleting the 100,000+hp X2010s/X2011s might be a wise move, wiping out the "legit" hybrids (e.g. 20B-powered RX-7s, RB26-powered Silvias, FR Integras etc.) is a bad move. Maybe they'll learn from the hybriding movement and allow for greater customisation options in GT6 or a further update.

    While we may not have to deal with gorillion hp Fiats anymore, it is still against the rules or w/e to modify a car like the way a lot of us were.

    I think the main reason why PD decided to drop hybriding like this is because it's not the legacy that they want GT5 to have. They were probably afraid of GT5 becoming "that game where you can have a 3K Civic" instead of it being a racing simulator. In their eyes it would be better to have a slightly mediocre racing game than a slightly mediocre racing game with cars that accelerate faster than jet fighters.

    Really, it probably shouldn't have been possible to do this in the first place, or they should have at least taken care of this much sooner, like in January.

    As I've stated, the worst part of this whole thing is that it was not "against the rules" at all. It worked well within the rules.

    PD could have embraced it and and controlled it FAR better than this. I could probably write 20 pages on alternate solutions that would have been less destructive.

    I'll say this, if GT6 doesn't offer more in depth tuning as has been experienced through modding, then there is really no point for me to spend $60 on an 80% rated game. (metacritic is still the industry standard http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-3/gran-turismo-5)

    I can do without it's tedious single player slog just so I can get cars to hotlap with. The only reason I bought GT5 was the online. If it didn't have that, it was a lackluster title and definitely not a triple A game.

    I hoped this " taking care of minor problems " would get rid of the hacks.

    :D

    It did.

    Now the game goes back to be a driving simulator.

    Nice.
