    I think i'd just buy GT 2000 and GT HD for now. Gonna come back to that Prius demo.

    God these demos are expensive. I guess my dad wouldn't be happy to spend that price on anything especially if he discovered that it's for "video games".

    Comparison to the final version...

    ---------
    In unrelated news, it seems that the Prius Demo didn't restock. I have found one on ebay but sadly i lost the auction.

    Instead i actually went and "bought" Gran Turismo 2000 and Gran Turismo HD install disc.

    Edit: @Carl the Sloth how much time did it take for you to buy and ship to your home?

    Around $19.95 but that's without the services cost...etc.

    I don't think there are differences between the cars but the UI and shaders are different.

    Am I lacking updates to this thread? I just happen to find out that the mythical Gunma Cycle Sports Centre is fully modeled, and that someone managed to rip it off of GT4.

    I don't know whether if linking downloads are against the AUP, so I won't put it here until someone tells me the all clear.

    I would be interested in the download myself :O
    I'm making a game and i'd like a reference in terms of track modeling. I've been looking everywhere for pictures, but having an actual model to lok a would be so much better!

    @silverman_GT Could you PM me the download link? I'd appreciate it a lot.

    If the demo is not running on the original PS2 hardware,lowering brightness to 0 in game options helps,at least in final GT4 (so maybe it will fix the demo too if it has settings menu)

    The issue prevails upon entering a course that isn't normally available on the disc, it isn't apparent otherwise. This particular graphical problem ceases to exist upon entering software mode (F9) but makes the performance unplayable.

    Unfortunately one cannot access any visual options in the demo releases.

    Does the problem occur on all Tracks?

    Every track except the default selectable one, ie Tsukuba on the Prius Trial Version.

    A very similar problem occurs with some tracks on my GT Concept disc and PAL/NTSC-U versions of GT3.

    The method I use make videos for tracks which have the issue are by playing them in F9 mode (causes lag) then save and record the replay.

    Oh, I was wondering why your games ran so slow, I thought you had a rubbish "PS2"!

    Yeah you should play in hardware mode if you have limited power. Software, although it looks better, causes massive lags. Anyway this is probably threading the line with what we're talking about ^^'

    Has anyone found content related to the online mode in the game's code? Wasn't that feature taken out of the game pretty late in development?

    Correct. There was:

    Originally, the game was supposed to come out with an online mode, but due to issues getting the feature to properly work, and the fact that the game had been delayed, they took it out and announced an online beta at E3 2006. I would imagine that because the feature was taken out so late in development, that there could be some content on the disc (maybe some of the icons and text you see in the video).
