    For a thread like this, it would be nice if the posts could be ordered by editing time, instead of posting time. It would seem that setting would need to be a special one, settable only by moderators.

    That way, everyone would see everyone's updates at the end of the thread as they made them.

    I'll post this idea, and maybe more related thoughts, in a forum-question forum.

    Hey mate, do the B and A licenses as well. The Lupo is a good Sunday Cup runner (can do it bone stock with the aids off, easily I might add), and the Sunfire GXP from A license works well as an FF racer for some. The experience can only help you.

    Take the 270R to the Silvia Sisters one make, then re-run it in the prize Sileighty for more A-spec if you so wish. Silver IA license somewhere in here so you get the GT-R concept car, use that to clean house at the Race Of Red Emblem (Another Nissan one-make race), and then go beat up on all of beginner hall.

    By then you should have a nice car collection and if you make the right decisions, quite a bit more A-spec.

    I just want to chuck this is the diary today I reinstalled my ps3 after giving away the ps4 and decided to start from scratch on the best GT game GT4.
    Wow I forgot how much fun this game is. If you still have it chuck it on for a bit I guarantee you will be on it for a while it wipes the floor with gt5 6 and driveclub.
    Loving it,:bowdown:gt4:tup::)

    Today I renewed my relationship with GT4 with a 199 A-Spec point victory in the glorious El Capitan 66 lap enduro.

    I entered a Mazda RX-8 Type E in the first race after a Sarthe II preview, winning over a Corvette Grand Sport, TVR 350, etc. by about 15 seconds, I drove three stints on Sports Hard tires totaling 46 laps, then switched to the medium compound for the final stints of 10 laps each. Tire wear was nearly even. No cheating or rough tactics were used; clean all the way.

    Yesterday I continued my retro-foray back into GT4 with a 200 A-Spec point win at the El Capitan 200 over a Lotus Motor Sport Elise. This was the very first lineup after console reset. I used a Toyota MR-2 Spyder '02, well tuned for even tire wear over 5 stints, the first three on S2 and the last two on S3. I never tire of trying to tame the mighty El Cap mountain course, especially turn 6, the blind, high-speed swerve over the crest after the tunnel.

    This morning I reprised my two favorite series, La Festa Italiano and the Pan-European Championship. For the Italian festival I used a rip-snorting Stratos with semi-racing exhaust, and for the Pan-Euro a BMW M3 CSL vs a McLaren SLR Mercedes, heading the first lineup after reset.

    After all these years, I continue to marvel at the superiority of the GT4 career races - even down to the complication of tire wear.

    Hi all. Anyone around? Some folks may remember me. I used to be SleepingDragon, admin at the old House of GT forums back in the GT2-3-4 days. I went off radar sometime in the GT4 era. Didn't keep up with the series, Never got a PS3 (or 4) or any of the titles past GT4. About a year ago, I grabbed another refurbed PS2 and GT3 and 4. I have new saves in progress for both. I'll come back with an actual stat report if anyone's alive around here. the skinny is that 4 is at 100% with all license golds. 3 is close to complete. Working on those time trials to cap it off. Still need to win some of the must have cars like the GT one racer and a few of the JGTCs

    Just hoped to find some of the old faces :)

    Okay, rather than double post I will edit in the data for GT4 @ 9/22/16

    In game date is May 4th of who knows what year, lol Still trying to win a red/white formula one car from N-ring 24, one that somewhat looks like a ferrari and have had somewhat of a goal of reaching 100 mil cr. Trying also to own at least one of every car if there is room in the garage. I'm pretty sure there is.

    10/03/16 Edited in an increase in a spec points and milage. Details of my 200pt enduro race are in the enduro thread in 200 pt section

    Edit 10/10/16 Game date Nov 28 of whatever year. Updated all stats This reflects increase in a spec points on short races including a few 200's in beginner league

    I take it they must have simplified it again after 4? It was an adjustment flipping over to 3 from 4. No fuel usage or ability to change tire type in pits or keep fronts or backs and let them heat up. Just a lot more strategy options in 4.

    TBH, I never played 3 - only 4, 5 and 6. GT4 held my attention and my devotion much longer than the others because of the 200 A-Spec point challenge. That said, the superior graphics and visual experience of 6 is hard to deny and overcome. I just detest the brevity of the career mode, lacking enduros and lacking a meaningful challenge.

    TBH, if I had the new platform and new titles, I'd probably never look back on 4,3,2,1 but *shrug not an option for me right now. I got 3 for 2 bucks.. that price was right. I Still had 4 but ordered a new copy (in the wrapper) online because the old one was used to begin with and it was a constant fight with the disc read errors.

    No enduros? :banghead: What are they thinking? lol. I've always loved the longer races. 24 was a bit much. I think I only ever did it a couple times without b-spec driver. Enduros are mostly what I do in 4 now. A lot of Laguna and El Cap to sell the car and Tokyo since I've really begun to like that track a lot more over the years. I must look into this 200pt challenge topic. It's not been my objective but I've run it with cars that would be a lot of points if I didn't use the b-spec some

    To be honest, I never played GT1, but when I first got GT2, I was downright terrible. (Then again, I got the game at age 8. :D) But I ended up picking up GT2 again 12 years later and progressed pretty far. (Still got a bit of the game to go.)

    I never got GT3, but I did get GT4, and I was severely dedicated to that game. I had over 50% of the game completed in a month's time. I didn't have a GTP account until this year, but some of my greatest and memorable races were in GT4. I never got to 100% completion due to some game error (I forget what it was) but I did complete EVERYTHING in the race.

    To be honest, IMO, I didn't get a chance to get to the advanced races because my skill level wasn't high enough in GT5, and I didn't feel like rerunning the same races. But GT6 was far too easy for my taste.

    Updated post above with changes due to 1st 200 pt enduro win. Details of that in that section of the forum. Kept telling myself if I manage to win one, I was never doing another. Pfft! Who am I kidding. I'm already working on grand Valley and wondering what others might be doable. This will be my GT life until I can afford the newer systems.

    lol NAS, GT1 and 2 were both horrid graphically. I revisited a few years ago and ugh. I suppose that's how people feel abut 3 and 4 now. 3 is a good game and you can probably find it cheap. Some of the tracks actually look better than their GT4 counterparts IMO just because of how they did the lighting and effects. Some are also smoother and easier to drive. GT1 was a very small game compared to those that came later, even 2. But the cool thing was you could race mod every single car in the game and almost every car was capable of winning the GT championship, so you really weren't done until you'd cleaned everything up with a Demio A-spec,lol


    United States
    IMO, even though GT2 was pretty bad graphically, it had some great tracks (Red Rock Valley, Seattle Circuit, Grindelwald and Midfield to boot) and the car selection was pretty good (Everyday cars you would see on the street such as a Dodge Intrepid, BMW 8 series, and Ford Taurus to boot).

    I have to say that GT4 was one of the best games for the PS2. The Gold music in particular was pretty epic, and I felt like I accomplished something awesome when I got gold on one of the difficult license tests (S-14 Chamonix and Mission 34 come to mind).
