    Nice update on the vehicles :) Heard about Evo VI being worked on, let's hope it has decent torque vectoring physics ( ACD - AYC ) and Casey using Mitsubishi technical articles and manuals ( on the drivetrain dynamics )

    :tup: Look out. Here we go.

    Not to discredit the post above.
    Can someone from the U.S. with a U.S. account confirm this latest news?

    Semi answered - SMS forum confirms release for PS4. I can't confirm it is available for NA/US.

    Currently downloading in the UK, 4.164GB. Is very very slow though. Said about 3hrs at first, paused and unpaused and it went down to 27 mins, then 107, now around 90 and extremely tardy. Sony really need to look at sorting out these download speeds, even fibre doesn't help a lot. Still, looking forward to being able to qualify in QWR and have it not count as practice.

    The fixes on Watkins Glen are there; there's one corner in particular (first left after long straight/chicane) they've smoothed the framerate out on. Nicely done :tup:

    Good to see 5.0 has been released simultaneously in all parts of the world this time, :tup::cheers::tup: Not like the frustrations of the 4.0 a month back when it was released days later in NA, spoiling many a online race! Good stuff!

    Crashed to PS report problem menu, first race online. That's my extent of testing out 5.0

    :(

    Another small but nice new touch is now when you enter your garage "edit current setup" is highlighted instead of the old "create new setup". Makes more sense. Plus it involves one less button press lol

    Downloads on PS4 suck horribly, it has been almost 2hrs and it only downloaded 1.3GB out of 4.2GB. Sony needs to fix their servers asap.

    I don't know why, but if you pause and unpause the download every 5-10 minutes it halves the download time for me. Mine took about 25 minutes doing it.

    Yeah, it's crazy. Overall, mine was between 23hrs (?!) and 9mins. The last 5 minutes took at least 15!

    I had that problem with 4.0. Doing the whole pause and unpause thing worked for me. Being an Aussie I'm used to slow internet, but it was like dial-up speed, it was ridiculous. This time I'm happy to say it's downloading at about 1.5mb/sec, which is pretty much my standard speed on the PS4, as my internet is only adsl 2+. No optic fibre here :'(

    I'm convinced that this explains why people, including myself, sometimes suffer from lag in online races, despite having a strong, fast connection. Well known fact that Sony limit the speed of their servers.......:indiff:

    Sorry, I posted a seperate "PS4 patch 5.0 out now" thread as I couldn't see anything else. I tend to robotically ignore the stickies as they don't have new posts that often. Whoops.

    Not a problem, mate! I link to those threads in the OP as the in depth discussion for that patch version/platform. All is as it should be :)
