    Good idea. Didn't see any other threads for this yet.

    I think it's a good idea to update just the first post once a new update comes around. With the newest release notes on top.

    Oh my, several suggestions for the format already :lol:

    I agree that an overview in the OP would be good, so let's do that. So we have:

    Alternative A: If every patch note is added to the OP, an explicit "bump" posting would be needed for each patch. It would be easy to see the patch detail history.

    Alternative B: If there's only links to the patch postings in the OP, the thread would get bumped automatically as the actual patch notes are posted.

    Alt. B is in now simply because it was a quick job copying Johnnypenso's links :). I'm fine with A as well - perhaps seeing the full history in one posting is best? Or should we let blowfishrulez & Johnnypenso duke it out in order to scientifically determine what's best? :p

    Well the method i mentioned keeps a good log of everything, but is rooted in the inferior forum software found on WMD. Since GTPlanet has the best forum software...IN THE WORLD...Johnnys idea would also work flawlessly. I don't mind anything as long as it keeps track of the history.

    Is it an idea to track patches by platform type as well. All I seem to see is patches for the XBone which does not interest me as a PS4 user. While I am mentioning PS4, any news on when the first patch will be out?

    So are these patches for all platforms of only specific platforms? The reason why I ask is on the pS4, we are still on 1.01 with no other updates available. If I may offer a suggestion, can you add which platform these are for next to the patch number?

    Thanks

    Basically, isn't that what I just said above? Still a great idea all the same :-)

    B: simple yet effective (just copy paste the patch note in the OP each time).
    Thanks @DrJustice !

    Hahaha yes, but @Johnnypenso always likes the posts to be in perfect order re OP.....Last week he asked me to put all the review threads on the OP, which would have taken hours to do, instead of playing the game! Lol! Great idea though @DrJustice ..... Although i hope we have a lot more fixes to come in patches for the game! More so for the PS4! ;)

    The platform info is in the patch notes themselves. In general they're for all platforms - the platform specific bits are specified in the notes. So patch 1.2 and 1.3 are for all platforms, except for the XB1 controller fix mentioned in 1.3. I'll add this info to the OP.

    Oh yeah, and we go with B then, unless there are protests.

    Edit: having a patch thread was Johnnypenso's idea!

    When these patchs are posted does that mean they are "live " (PC would be live ) or does that mean SMS have gave them to Sony or Microsoft waiting for testing ?

    ^ They may be slightly staggered for the platforms (from hours to days?), subject to 1st party approvals, but as we have seen they're able to roll them out quite rapidly. Perhaps it would be good if the first sighting of a patch in the wild for each platform is reported here (we'd only need on such report for each patch/platform).

    Curious to see some feedback from XBone users. Well done SMS, well done.

    Im really hoping we get that nasty Center Spring issue resolved for the wheel in the first patch on the ps4. Hopefully its a easy fix. Cant wait to see what it feels like without it!!

    Mods: Would it be an idea to pin this thread to have a central known place to collate all patches?

    To satisfy the mad dash to be the first to post patch news, folks can post the patch notes here (in QUOTE tags to follow the format), and I will update the OP with a link :)

    That all sounds great. Looks like those 40 guys who are left to work on this game are doing a good job.

    And I really look forward to using the pad with my wheel so I can finally take advantage of the photo mode!

    While I do think this Patch 2.0 appears to be quite hefty and gets the game "right", or tries to at least, I do not understand why it is names 2.0. I do not think it is a shift forward. Am I missing something? Seems to me it is simply correcting existing game content, not introducing anything new.

    We're just used to waiting a year or so for Spec 2.0 in GT. :p

    Funny, true. But I work for a software dev company and, traditionally, changing that number is a BIG DEAL.

    I think that one of those "coming soon " might be coming . That just a guess with no proof to back it .
