    I was searching for the beta logo's and I found something interesting :
    [​IMG]

    The small M3 GTR car icon has a different colour scheme.
    As you can see it's very similar to the final one.

    So I tried to recreate this beta colour scheme with Photoshop, to see how it could look.

    Fantastic work, it also looks better than the original scheme! If only the lights weren't yellow, I don't like this touch on the Camaro LM either.

    Shame they dropped additional colours option on some race cars, in GT5 and GT6 lobbies this would add decent diversity for players who race with two or three cars (DTM, for instance). I recall Mazda 6 touring car had good colours that never came in the full game (here).

    Great stuff!

    I really like the red version it may have been a influenced version from this.

    Reminds me of the unused livery I discovered in GT4 prologue a while back.

    I wonder if it's possible to stop the time demo counter in GT4's Toyota Demo?

    Interesting to see most of these hidden cars/etc can be scene in GT4 Prologue too.

    [​IMG]

    Also, wondering if anyone knows what these could be?

    inca0001
    inca0001
    re_0001
    re_0002
    re_0003
    re_0004

    My guess is RE is that RE-AMERIYA tuning manufacture, but there are 4 of them assuming if they are from that we may discover 2 unseen cars? I have no idea what "inca" is short for.

    They are car addresses which don't seem to work on GT4 prologue but may in other builds like the BMW/PRIUS demo. I'm finding the dates of each build so that what could removed we may find them in different builds.

    IIRC, RE stands for Renault.

    I made the mistake of procrastinating my homework again, but I went looking for IGN's GT4 videos on YouTube and I found some gems:


    6-car rally in Chamonix (video dated June 23, 2004)


    Off-screen footage of Lancer Evo 7 in Grand Canyon (video dated August 27, 2003)

    :)

    I went thru every single car in the Toyota Prius Trial Version by looking in the "car" folder (and watching the name of every car). No RE Amemiya or Incas. As far as I know the BMW Demo only contains the BMW M5 Concept as hidden/beta car. I'm gonna take a look at the other trial versions (350Z, Lupo Cup Trial Version, ecc..)

    There are two more if you alter the menu strings.

    It would seem they initially intended it to be a more inclusive BMW demo featuring a range of road and performance models rather than just the 120d and 120i.

    For some reasons, in the Prius Trial Version, the last 3 Toyota cars + a Volkswagen one have the Prius as placeholder.. Just had a look at beta Tokyo R246 and, apart from some sponsor changed, the track itself is the same as the final version..

    I've found that the inca were actually Lancia's my mistake.

    Although, I had a look through the GT4 Public Online Beta and Online Trial they both seem to have no hidden cars, might try another look.

    FYI: These versions are based on finalized version of the game, so the lack of hidden cars might be expected. :idea:

    Just like previous games, @EncounterGTR has made a custom grid for this game.



    BTW, could you perhaps make custom grids for the demo versions of the games? I know you've done it on GT2.

    I did that about 4 years ago, can't remember much.

    Although, I might look back into it once research on GT4 and GT Concept is finished.

    Highly doubt we're done with both of these games. It will take tremendous amount of knowledge of how the game carries out specific data points to any given track and or car. We have not explored the debug functions much, but would be interesting if we could find those paths, which will envolve modifying the camera to a debug world camera.

    It's the same as changing AI cars in the final version.
    I managed to do this in GT5 too.

    Some images of the GT4 online. I have both copies but the online doesn't work, will need to hack through there soon. There's some cool menus.

    If we can just get inside GT4 VOL file archetypes then it might just work, I don't think ordinary editing will do us any good at the moment to put GT4 online. We will definitely need to know how the packets are transferring to each to the client and to our own server, which would be like PD's P2P Online ability but stronger. I learned that from Shutoku Battle: Online, which someone is trying to reboot the whole server at the moment. It could work, we just need to get into the online files, and go from there.

    One concern is the games in Japanese, where I don't understand a word.
