    Pez, I forgot to mention a bug from the Alpha 3 that's still in the 4.1. The bug is on the demo replays, the AI is bugged to hell.

    I assume the replays are storing the car setup in some way and it's using the wrong parts. I'll add it to the list of things to research.

    It's been awhile since I've seen that issue with my v1.2 USA copy and that was because I swapped a file to use a .pal file. That was long ago when I was playing around with swapping menus and additional stuff that deals with the title screen, using other regions. It was a replay demo file I think in the folder with the title screen.

    Thanks to a certain member here, I now am able to finally play GT2 Plus. What a blast!! You guys did an amazing job!

    One thing I would love to see, is the Espace F1 or one of the Pikes Peak cars added to the AI roster of the GT World Championship. Perhaps maybe the fictional LM Editions could be added too? Is that possible?

    Races are limited to a panel of 16 opponents per event that the game will randomly pick. Creating/adding an opponent to the game's data is very easy but it all depends on how many free spots there are in the event.
    All 5 GT All Stars races have 1 free spot, but in theory it should be used for the CLK Race Car that's unused in the game. Or at least, that's where i'd put it since it's meant to race against the 155 and Calibra Touring Cars.

    Would be cool to see the CLK Race Car as an opponent!

    I literally signing up just to say thank you for this mod. It is definitely great to see hidden or deleted content again in the game.

    There is however one thing that bothers me. The first three Bonus Cars from License Tests are not exactly in the right spec at all. I feel like as if it is a hybrid work. Here's the link to my imgur gallery for further reference.

    Is it possible if you can revert back the spec of those three cars to its original value? I mean, an FF Spoon S2K? Whyyyy...

    Use you a new save/savestate? This happen often when you use a vanilla save game/save state

    Savegames from the unmodified game are not compatible, as mentioned in the readme. This is the sort of issue you will encounter when using an incompatible save.

    I use a completely vanilla save game, as in completely empty memory card right from the start.

    Okay, here's the thing. Just to see if I effed things up, I decided to move my previous save into Memory Card (MC) Slot 2. This meant that I am starting afresh the same patched game... again. Much to my surprise, this time... it works well. All the specs for Spoon S2K, Dodge Concept Car and Mitsubishi GTO/3000GT LM '98 is right bang on.

    I kept thinking on how the messed up spec happened, then it hit me! Before I starting to play the patched GT2, I previously run the Bonus Disc of GT2. In case if you are wondering what's inside it, it contains a 90 seconds demo of Arcade Disc, a few interview with Kaz regarding the development of GT2 and GT2000 and also some free Downloads. I downloaded one of the available content into MC Slot 1 hoping that it would work with PAL GT2, but disappointingly it didn't. That might explains my earlier problem.

    Now that I have a completely vanilla save for MC Slot 1, all is well so far. No major problem to report from me so far.

    Phew, that may be it then. There are no deliberate changes to those cars or the licenses, so I was worrying a little!
