    They give us such a good intro (Finally getting close to GT-Intro expectations) then it only plays once :indiff:

    *sniff*

    Just have to watch GT3's intro again...

    I had it like 3 times now, but not every time. It's more like a random thing with me, don't know about the rest of you.

    I guess this is all in my head, but I enjoy the game more now then I did before, it's more... "polished" now. :)

    Hi. I don't know if anyone have noticed this. Now you can turn the clutch on/off (G25) just by pressing triangle anytime in the race :)

    You can do that physically with your pad in 0.1 seconds, but take a look at the front wheels of your car while doing that: They dont move into postion that fast - the steering angle changes as (slow) as a human could manage to do this by actually turning a steering wheel as fast as he can.

    i only got to play for a few minutes last night after loading the update, but it seemed like the replay glitch i was experiencing might have been fixed. i'll have to do a few more races tonite to find out for sure -fingers crossed- :D

    Yes, but now you can hit triangle at any time during the race and swith between clutch or no clutch :) Before you could only do in the beginning of a race.

    Guys, did you noticed more smoothness during gameplay? But I see more jaggies when the intro screen comes out and when it takes me to MY PAGE. But since gamplay has a lot less jaggies then before the update I am happy!

    I am still pissed that SL55 still the RPM arrow only goes half way!!!

    Before the update you could switch the manual clutch on or off before each corner, people we're doing that in racing, GT Academy and TT's as they couldn't be bothered to downshift in manual or they like left foot braking and wanted the flat shift on the straights. Not sure if you could toggle the clutch in December (only had the pad then) but its been possible for months and would guess its always been like that.

    I looked at the SL55 too and the rev counter stops at 12 o clock still.

    Still shows up as 281bhp in the UK version and it's actually had a major acceleration increase! Much nicer to drive now, I used to get frustrated because of the acceleration before the update.

    To get it, I think you need to disable the opening movie in the 'utility'/'other' settings (that refers to the old opening move available in GTTV) and enable the opening movie in the demo settings. Or maybe it's guarded by one of the other items in the demo settings, I've enabled them all. :)

    Hope this helps - I don't know the precise English terms because my PS3 system language is set to German.

    It's always been like that, it never was restricted only to the start of the race.

    Here is a workaround from Poly..

    1. Download up to the Dowload Failed screen.
    2. Restart Console.
    3. Decline to update when you get to the first update screen
    4. Go to 'News' and redownload it from there, it will pick up from the failure.

    Well I think I temporarily solved the jaguar opening vid problem...before when it was not showing up my ethernet cable was not plugged into the back and naturally I wouldn't be signed into the network because of this. So, I hooked it up and signed in and it showed it first thing...does anyone else see the vid without their ps3 being set up like mine because I share the E cable with my computer and that would be a bore to switch everytime I wanted to see the new opening :(

    I wanted to show my son the new start video, so I switched started the game and the old video came on? I think the fact that a different disc was in the PS3 in the mean time made the difference, he was playing GH3.

    I think if you play a different game and then come back to GT5P you get the Jaguar Opening. At least that is what I did and saw it. Maybe a coincidence, but worth a try for someone that wants to see it again.

    Well for me the jaguar opening doesnt play...the regular opening does, but even with that turned off the jag doesn't play unless I'm signed in to the network.

    In my opinion the new update is an improvement. Disconnects are way down. They still exist, but are way down.

    The ramming penalties need to be adjusted. When I'm holding my line in a corner, someone t-bones me and I get the ramming penalty, how does that make sense.

    With the new tire values, you have to spend more time fine tuning, but I'm actually enjoying the challenge.

    Unfortunately, punters are still punters.

    Thanks, I took a while but eventually it worked. I'm loving the new Jag intro. And the new sounds.

    I also had a quick go online (my first time ever, got the game a few days ago) on the beginner race around Suzuka. It was madness, I was leading for a large chunk on the first lap. Then I was rammed several times, everyone was off the track, I ended up 5/12.

    Can't say that I noticed this... in 5 attempts at online races the other night, I had two failures to connect and 1 disconnect during a race - when I was leading :indiff:

    One thing I noticed, but it might just be my imagination, but the rear lights of a few cars look different - more realistic, brighter... the Ferrari 512BB for example. Maybe I just didn't notice it before, it's not something I would have thought was that high up on PD's list of things to change!

    I guess the "kids" found out a way to disconnecting and getting back online without much of a bother (unplug the NW cable drops the connection).

    The jack won't survive that forever though, so prepare to see threads like "Prologue ruined by PS3's network jack!". :dunce:

    But problem being it still runs quicker than the DC5 Integra Type R in Suzuka after I checked the time trials, where in real life it laps slower than both a Subaru WRX and DC2 Integra Type R around Tsukuba, let alont a DC5-R. I suppose they just 'fixed' the numbers lol?!

    I just spent an hour with the Cappuccino. I had some fun with the little underpowered car, before the update. However, since the update, I am really enjoying the small RWD cars. The new tire physics, weight distribution physics, and of course the new sounds really add excitement to what used to be somewhat humdrum. It's amazing how much little changes can make such a big difference. I haven't been online since the update, but the offline mode is keeping me entertained at the moment. I even started over from scratch, so I could experience it all with the new physics (that, and the update wiped out all my data.)
