    Thanks, it was quite the task, but well worth the effort to complete the challenge before moving on to GT5 (well, maybe eventually...) [​IMG]

    Little tired of GT5 lately. What do you think I'm doing instead? ;)

    BTW, I think in the Japanese version of GT4, all of the feats of this thread might be achieved in one less game day? The reason is because the 4 hour Nordschleife endurance race in NTSC-J GT4 rewards you with an Audi Abt TT-R touring car. So you shouldn't need to buy an Audi TT. Interesting, so maybe there's a Japanese 31st of May Society, or a 5月31日 Society.

    Which are you going for this time? It's not an "all-gold" perfect game, and it doesn't look like you're aiming for minimum A-spec points again, given you're at almost double your previous completed minimum already! It's looking like an all-A-spec effort again though, so :tup::tup::tup: for that!
    0-0-0-0 are the best B-spec stats we can see!
    I initially thought there were some shennanigans going on when I saw your credit total already, then I remembered it's in Yen equivalency and everything is multiplied by 100!!! :dopey:

    Good luck with the new quest! How's it helping your Japanese language comprehension?!!
    Does the Japanese NTSC/J disc run on a regular unmodified US-spec PS2?
    I might have to source myself a copy if it does. My GT5 is unopened and for sale, but I'd still relish something to throw a little variety into GT4!

    No, the NTSC-J doesn't run on a US PS/2. I saw the local Book-Off (used Japanese bookstore) had used copies of the NTSC-J versions of GT3, GT4 Prologue, and GT4, along with GT Concept 2001 Tokyo, so of course I did the sane thing and bought a Taiwanese PS2 from an importer so that I could buy the NTSC-J games and play them. :) The Taiwanese version seems to be the best option for playing NTSC-J games in the US, because the PS2 menus can be set to English and the Taiwanese wall power is 110V.

    I'm going to try to beat Famine's original achievement by one day (due to the TT-R touring car coming as a prize car). So a 31st of May 100% all A-spec game. In the photo above, I've completed the licenses, all 34 missions, and the entire Special Condition Hall at 200 points per race. I'm no purist, I used the Dodge Ram for all 63 special condition races. :)

    Wait, what?!!! The Japanese game only has 45 licence tests? Huh?!!
    Why did they give ROW 80 to complete then? :grumpy:
    Now I understand why you can afford to go for gold in some tests and still beat Famine's record, otherwise you waste 2 extra game days per licence taking delivery of prize cars over just doing the bronze route, instead of buying what you'd need instead which'd only burn 1 gameday.

    Knowing you though, this will have been analysed down to the finest detail and there'll be a good reason for what you're doing!! :tup:

    Actually, the NTSC-J has 80 licenses as well. In both Famine's game and mine, we skipped the first two licenses (B and A) by importing them. And like his game, I kept one license in each of IB, IA, and S to a bronze standard, since getting all silver or all gold adds extra days for extra prize cars. If you look at the third picture attachment to his post #1 in this thread, he shows the same 45/0/3 license completion.

    See, I knew there'd be a meticulously planned reasoning behind this. Since it came from Famine I'm now even less surprised! :lol:

    I'm just about ready to start into the unknown portion of my June 1st quest. I still have the three 24 hour races and 1000 miles! to drive before I make my first purchase. I'll have my own little twist to the perfect game, too.

    Hi there, Famine! Just wondering how many cars were driven for this gamesave...? I see the list of purchased cars, but which prize cars were used?

    I studied the entry restrictions to come up with a lineup of 47 cars needed to get to 100%, and I'm wondering if that's the same number you came up with.

    Thanks for the feedback, and great job!

    I genuinely can't remember - and I don't even know where that gamesave is any more :(

    I used 78 cars during my run-thru, but I wasn't trying to limit myself to the lowest number of cars used, so I used a few of the prize cars just for fun that weren't absolutely necessary if you are trying to use the fewest number of cars. I have them listed on a spreadsheet, so I could find them if you need them.

    Thanks for the info, GTsail290!

    After taking a close look at the race requirements, I started with the OMRs. IIRC, it takes at least 45 cars to complete all of them. These OMR-eligible cars can compete and win all races except the Truck and F1 races, so I opted to use the RAM and R8 Race Car, respectively.

    That made 47 cars total to complete the game, but it requires the use of non-prize cars. When I realized this, I chose to prioritize using the minimum instead of going for minimum days..

    Upon further study, I learned that it actually works out perfectly with the used car cycle to finish all 522 races and acquire all of the lowest mileage used cars (and 2nd lowest for models that offer 6.2 mile versions) except for the Black Beauties (all of which can be bought new). I decided at that point to work toward a "drive any car" complete game, where you could drive the lowest mileage version of any car in the game without cycling through the weeks unnecessarily.

    I'm at 422 races complete, "only" 100 more to go!! To this point, and for the next 6 races, all will have been done for 200 points.

    I'm a bit bummed that I can't be part of the June 1st society (unless I'm crazy enough to go for another playthrough), but if there's a "Club 522", I hope to join it!!

    Thanks again for the info and inspiration! You guys and this community made it possible for me to get as much enjoyment from this game to want to finish th journey I started nearly 6 years ago!

    Have A Great Drive!

    The pics are from a run I did last year. :tup: Insanely enough, I'm on another playthrough where I spend even less money and gain more A-spec points than my last attempt, hopefully ending up with somewhere around 16.25 million credits (credit count was 15,968,558) and 86K A-spec points, all without resorting to the Dodge Ram or dirty driving. :crazy:

    Normally quadruple posting gets you a warning from our friendly moderators, but I seem to be the only one crazy enough to still be attempting this in 2017. :crazy: 75% progress report:

    I'll help you split your posts, but great job. Thinking about doing a whole new playthrough, but with underpowered cars (similar to RynoGT4's walk through).

    Good luck on those 24 Hour races, if you have a PC just do save states.

    In your case it's because it's legitimate double-triple-quadruple-posting :)

    Finally, after several delays due to work (Eventually quit; don't ever work for Walmart.) and my PS2 crapping out which resulted in me having to order 2 off the internet (one only lasted a day), I finally completed my final 100% run through GT4, once again without using the Dodge Ram or nitrous:

    Very Late to the party, but decided to look around the GT4 section, have to post congrats on the above RVDNuT374. Looks similar to what I did, but with least days constraints as well, very nice.
