    Main questions list:

    3. Why can't I enter the Extreme Hall?

    You need gold in all series races in Beginner and Professional Halls to access the final event in Professional Hall or any event in Extreme Hall, and also make sure they are not Bronze instead of Gold because they can look quite similar. If you skip a race or lose a race during a series, you must go back and race that as well.

    21. Help! My GT4 savegame/memory card is corrupt. What should I do?

    You can't do much to save the GT4 save, I'm afraid. Once it's corrupt it's gone, unless you had the savegame on another memory card or backed up onto your PC using a Max Drive (see question No. 30 for more information on backing up save files).

    To fix the corrupt card, you can use the Max Drive. You highlight the card which is having problems, then press Square to give it a clean format. It should then work properly.

    I personaly use Imageshack.us for images, and http://www.yousendit.com/ for videos, but there are many other places found HERE.

    27. What should I purchase as my first car?

    There are lots of different first cars people have bought found HERE and HERE.


    28. What is TCS?

    This stops the cars wheels from spinning when you apply throttle. You can change how strong you apply this in the setup screen just before a race. The stronger you apply it, the less wheelspin you get.


    29. What is ASM?

    This applies the brakes automatically to slow down the car while going around a corner. This helps the car stop oversteering and understeering, depending on what’s happening. You can change how strong you apply these in the car setup screen just before a race. The stronger you apply the settings, the less oversteer or understeer you will get, but this can slow down your car badly. If you want the best track times, you should disable it.


    30. What top speed have people attained?

    Find out how fast people have been in their cars HERE and HERE.

    34. People's 0-60mph times?

    You’ll find people's times HERE. To take an accurate reading, go to the 0-400m or 0-1000m strips in the Power and Speed hall, race, and pause when you reach 60mph. The time will be on the top right-hand corner of your screen.


    35. How do I back-up my GT4 savegame?

    You need to have 2 PS2 memory cards. Go to the PS2’s browser and copy the savegame from one memory chip to the other.

    Or, you can use a:

    MAXDRIVE = Is a USB flashdrive that comes with its own Software. The Software lets you copy saves from your memory card to the USB drive and vice versa.

    X-port = is a device that you put your memory card in and can connect to your PC via USB.

    With the savegames on your PC you can share them over the Internet! Therefore you see those savegames in *.max format or *.xps

    The production of this product has stopped now, though, so try somewhere like www.ebay.co.uk / www.ebay.com


    36. How do you take a picture with multiple cars in it?

    Firstly before you read on, you’ll need Photoshop Elements (or better) before you can do any of this.

    HERE you’ll find lots of info on the car, and the creator of it, Phil Frank, takes a visit too!


    44. VW Golf Mk V GTI transmission bug?(4th and 5th gears the same)

    Information on how to sort that out is found HERE.


    45. Mitsubishi Eclipse 2006 transmission bug? (4th and 5th gears the same)

    Information on how to sort that out is found HERE.


    46. What is the point of Tuners Village? They all sell the same parts?

    Sometimes, you can find “Original” parts sold by some tuners. This varies depending on what car you’re tuning. Other than this, the parts are all the same.


    47. What is the ending movie music called?

    Synthetic vs The Antidote - Moon Over The Castle.


    48. Why are there no split times at Fuji Speedway 2005?

    This is probably because the split times in GT4 are from real life, so when GT4 was made, the track wasn’t even complete, so PD had no idea where to put them and left them out.


    49. Are Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini in GT4?

    No. This is because other game companies have the license to have them in their games, which makes them have an advantage over the GT series. So if PD were to acquire the licenses, it would be very expensive.


    50. Where do I find the old Mini?

    The car is only available in the Japanese and Chinese first-releases of GT4.


    Please remember before making a new thread, do a SEARCH and look in the other FAQs found HERE and HERE. If you can’t find anything there or by searching, feel free to make a new topic.

    I’ll be adding to this FAQ when I can. If you have any problems or have any improvements you'd like me to do on this FAQ, please be free to PM ME and I’ll gladly try to help. To be honest to you guys, I don’t play GT4 too much myself so I won’t be too knowledgeable about questions you may ask, I’m just giving you the links to places that are worth looking at so searching yourself is kept to a minimum. Well, with these links you don’t need to be knowledgeable, you can probably find what you need here!


    Do not reply in this thread if you see it open. More than likely I'll be editing the FAQs. Thank you.
