Gran Turismo HD online time leaderboard still working since december 2006. But GT5 and GT6 servers are off.
There is! I just haven't found a way to access it...yet.
If you mean Gran Turismo 6's Course Maker courses, you can still drive on them. A means and a method does exist as shown here.That would be some amazing news. What is your opinion on Course Maker Tracks? They might be accessible too. I mean I can still watch replays of races on these, so …
(I mean IF a hidden LAN mode in GT6 could be accessed in the future)
Yeah screw PD!
They need to keep the ancient servers open for the rest of time so i can play ten year old games with three other people.
It doesn't matter how much it costs and if takes resources from gt7. They can downsize the studio to save some money so they can run a hundred year old server. That would be great for the players.
With a simple modification to the game's executable, it is now possible to have a networked multi-player session on Gran Turismo 5 once again, and yes, this includes Shuffle Races! This functionality is actually tied to many of the game's "configurations" that the executable can load on boot. A certain configuration has the "LAN Battle" functionality 100% working. Normally, when you enable the Secret Settings on your save data and toggle the display of the "Online Race" option for the top menu, selecting LAN Battle does not work, but with this configuration, it's fully functional.
Below are screenshots of my first test. One of my consoles is a debugging station PS3, while my other console is a superslim PS3 running HEN/HFW:

Good, I'm getting a PS3 and discovered this LAN mode on GT5.Yes now an then.
I mainly use GT5 garage editor sometimes when I play it. PS4 should have been a backwards capability to play all Gran Turismo games, so when I buy a PS5 I could still play old GT games.Good, I'm getting a PS3 and discovered this LAN mode on GT5.
Yeah, I know, I'm a bit late for a PS3, but I'm a PC guy, I missed a lot of gems and considering PS5 will come out with PS4 compatibility I decided to pick a cheap PS3 and skip the PS4 to get a PS5 probably
Is someone still playing?
yeah I meant with the LAN modeIf you mean online, then no, because they turned the servers off (like they do with all older games). If you wanna play with people online you need to do LAN tunnelling & my guess is there are not enough people doing it to make it worthwhile. GT5 is only good for offline play IMO. If you're getting a PS3 you might as well pick up GT6 also.
yeah I meant with the LAN mode
The LAN mode is for a Local Area Network lobby only, i.e. several PS3's linked together at the same location. To race people online you'd need to set up LAN tunnelling & I don't know if anyone has actually achieved this as of yet with GT5.
EDIT: I had a look on YouTube, & while there are several people who got the LAN Mode working, there is only one guy @j0nny0093 who got a LAN tunnelling set up working.
