    Hey everyone,

    I've been reading up on the forums and looks like no one has really started a Forum Wide Time Attack so I guess ill be the first to start this up. Since the game has been out for over a week now, I know most of you die hard GT fans must well be over 50-100 cars in your garage.

    Starting today 10/08/09 until 10/10/09 11pm, I will post a new course and car to use in. Members will have 2 days to complete a time attack record and post a picture of your recent events day shown below.

    [​IMG]

    Please make sure that you add a note card or a piece of paper with your member name written on it with the date just to verify. If anyone has any suggestions I am more the open to any suggestions.

    Will be taking the top 25 members for each track. You are open to adjust any settings or assists if you wish. Since this is the first season, and hoping that everything goes well. I hope to see a few seasons at least. Each season will have 13 tracks to race for the top 3 slots in the season. Every session will have points awarded for 1st to 10th place. This is just for bragging rights, hopefully there will be a healthy competition amongst the community. Good Luck to everyone!!

    Thanks to Glubags for taking the time to write up this guide on how to find your replays correctly.

    I'll write up a quick little tutorial like niigaki suggested. Your replay.zip is incomplete--it needs to include the entire parent folder and all of its contents. I'll edit this post when I'm finished. You should go ahead and delete that zip file from your attachments and reupload it when I'm done.


    Here we go:

    First, attach your PSP to your PC/Mac and go to the PSP/SAVEDATA folder. It'll list your saved files. Mine looks like this:
    [​IMG]


    The folders with the "UC*S*****LCNS" prefix contain your saved Driving Challenge replays, if you saved any. These are the in-game driving challenges; the license tests. The folders with the "UC*S*****RPLY" prefix contain saved replays from single-player events. These are the ones you need to look for. The letters/numbers after the "RPLY-" in the folder are the same for each track, and the last two numbers are the number of replays you have saved for that specific track. For instance, I have 4 replays saved for the Citroen on Autumn Ring Mini Reverse, and those 4 replays are the "B963F590D" folders, incremented 00 to 03. The 03 folder is the last replay I saved for this challenge, which is my 56.1 lap. If you aren't sure which of yours is which, open one of your folders and find the PARAM.SFO file:
    [​IMG]


    Open the PARAM.SFO file with a text editor like Notepad. You may have to hit Format -> Wordwrap to read it a little easier:
    [​IMG]


    As you can see, it lists the course, vehicle, physics, and tires used. Do NOT make any changes or re-save the file from your text editor--simply close it. Any changes or re-saving from the text editor will result in corrupt data.

    When you've found your replay by viewing the PARAM.SFO file, go back to the SAVEDATA directory and, on a Windows machine, right-click the folder containing your replay data and choose Send to -> Compressed file. This will create the ZIP file you need. Cut and paste that zip file from your PSP to your computer. Leaving the ZIP file on your PSP won't harm it, but it will show up as corrupt data in your Saved Data Utility on the PSP's screen.

    When you've placed that ZIP file on your PC, upload it to the forum using the file attachment utility, or just host it online if you have a preferred hosting solution and provide the link in your post. Other users can then open your ZIP and extract the entire folder to their PSP/SAVEDATA directory to view the replay in-game.

    I mentioned the last two numbers in the folder name because there's a chance you may already have saved a replay with this folder name. If that's the case, make a backup copy of your replay folder somewhere on your PC/Mac before you unzip another user's replay to your PSP, as it will overwrite yours, and I'm pretty sure incrementing the folder name yourself by renaming it (to prevent yours from being overwritten) will again result in corrupt data.

    This probably all sounds complicated, but it's super simple... takes 5 minutes at the most.

    Woo!

    [​IMG]

    0'54.991 Ghost saved.

    There are still about 2 tenths to be had if I were to guess. The first corner and last corner on this lap were by no means perfect... I'm betting one of us will pull a low 54.8 soon... maybe a high 54.7.


    Oh, and I know saved games are console-locked, but are replay and ghost data locked? I'd really like to be able to upload/share ghosts with you guys.

    can you add a few other cars to the challenge and have a leaderboard for each different car in the challenge? this will help out the participation since the nissan dealership is not on demand and some people are still waiting for there gtrs from psn.

    I'm a turtle but I may enter in 1 or other track (when I have time, the car to enter and after finishing the car cycle list for the Vibe GT) just for some fun :)

    well each challenge is only 2 days long. it takes about 3 minutes to run the S class Test Course race with only 2 laps to make 150,000 CR to purchase the GTR. But I understand where you are coming from, so starting next on the next challenge there will be 2 cars per challenge. 1 day before the following challenge I will introduce the next set of cars being used so you have time to prepare and buy your cars in case you don't have them already.

    I'm currently participating. I'm trying to crack the 55 second mark but its so hard.

    I have a suggestion. Everyone should also post whether they are using the d-pad or the analog nub (or maybe even a steering wheel even). I would like to see if there is a difference in times.

    Huge props, that is smoking. Now I have a good time to beat. :D

    Also, I use the d-pad exclusively... the analog nub doesn't have the range of motion or sensitivity I need... so it's tap-tap-tapping on the d-pad for me.

    By the way, I just ran this game out to my TV through the PSP component cables, and I am thoroughly impressed. The game looks fantastic. I recorded the 54.991 replay off-screen from my tv... will upload it soon. Wish I could capture video directly, but I'm not about to get on the CFW boat, nor am I about to spend $130+ for a component->composite down-converter box.

    This is great!

    Would it be a good idea to stick to 1-2 car/s for the whole month?
    Nissan GT-R Specv '09 looks popular.

    A few more suggestions:
    1. create a new thread for every challenge (Time Attack Challenge: Tsukuba Circuit/Fwd, Oct 8-10)
    2. lets make it longer (7 days vs 3 days) to prolong the game.

    I appreciate your input. At this time I don't believe sticking to 1 or 2 cars a month is a good idea because people will get bored of it. Also I don't believe having a new thread for each challenge is a wise idea because I don't want to have this closed on the account of spamming the forums. Ill gather everyone's input at the end of the this season and see what we can do to improve next season's.

    Thanks again for the input, as always I am open to any suggestions and input. Keep up the good work everyone, the competition is getting pretty fierce within the first day. Already 3 people are fighting for 1st place haha.
