Gran Turismo 5 2.01 Released, New B-Spec Seasonal Event

October 26th, 2011 by Jordan Greer

The latest version of Gran Turismo 5, version 2.01, has just been released. Weighing in at 112MB, it provides a number of bug fixes, patches, and tweaks. Here’s a complete change log:

[Major Changes and New Features]
– Compatibility of Kart Space I/II with cars other than racing Karts
It is now possible to race on Kart Space I/II of the DLC in cars other than racing Karts in online races and in the Free Run of Practice.
(In the one make races of the Arcade mode and Practice, the courses are still limited to racing Karts.)

– Expanded the car restrictions in the Online Lounge
It is now possible to simultaneously set [Car Restrictions], [Performance Points], [Power], and [Models] in regulation settings. ( [Vehicle Tuning] must be set to [Unrestricted] and [Car Restrictions] must be set to something other than [Select from Garage].)

[Other Improvements]
– In the Open Lobby, it is no longer possible to vote to kick out the person who created the room. (If the player leaves the room after creating it then comes back, they are then subject to the vote.)
– Adjusted the force of the steering wheel returning to center after a race when using the “Guillemot T500RS”.
– Improved the steering model when driving racing Karts with the DUALSHOCK®3 Wireless Controller, to prevent overly spinning out.

[Correction of Known Issues]
– Corrected an issue where the BGM would stop playing when returning from the Lounge to the Open Lobby.
– Corrected an issue where if further engine tuning was performed on a car that already had engine tuning, the engine tune field would become incorrect when changing setting sheets.
– Corrected a discrepancy in the numerical figures in the setting sheets.
– Corrected an issue where wheels and horns would become different in every setting sheet change.
– Corrected an issue where the removal of aerodynamic parts and wings would not be implemented when changing setting sheets.
– Corrected an issue where the TCS and ABS settings would change when changing setting sheets.
– Corrected an issue where if a certain operation was performed when using a steering wheel controller with an H pattern gear shifter, the shift lever position, gear position display and the car operation would become mismatched. (On the Logitec G25 Racing Wheel, Logitech G27 Racing Wheel, and Guillemot T500RS + TH8RS Shifter.)
– Corrected an issue with the key assignments on the Logitech G27 Racing Wheel.
– Corrected an issue where the driver hand motion did not match the steering wheel motion.
– Corrected an issue where autopilot would not be disengaged after returning to the course, when resuming an endurance race where the pit lane was entered at overspeed before saving.
– Corrected an issue where the Practice ranking board would reset if the weather change/time change setting was changed when editing an existing track in the Course Maker edit screen.
– Corrected an issue where no courses could be saved in the Course Maker if the update (2.00) was installed without going through earlier updates.
– Corrected an issue where an error would occur at game start if the update (2.00) was installed on a system that has a save data that has never been updated from the first version.
– Corrected an issue with the Hybrid System simulation on the Toyota Prius G Touring Selection ’03, Toyota Prius G ’09, Toyota Prius Touring Car.
– Corrected an issue on the Ferrari F10’10, where drivers were experiencing random vibration.
– Corrected an issue where the wheel color would not appear correctly in pit work, if the wheel had been repainted.
– Corrected an issue where the [Reset to Default] button was not functioning on cars that originally come with turbo kits, when other turbo kits were installed.
– Corrected various other issues regarding the update and the DLC.

A special new “Online B-Spec Challenge” Seasonal Event, the first of its kind, has also been made available. As you might expect, the races are for your fastest B-Spec driver and take place at the following locations:

  • 400PP High Speed Ring (5 laps), 125,000 Cr. Prize
  • 500PP Rome City (5 laps), 170,000 Cr. Prize
  • 650PP Tokyo Route 246 (10 laps), 220,000 Cr. Prize

Thanks to Brian for the early tip!

    Those two cars are kinda popular (scurdria farrari& italia 430)

  2. Oct. 28, 9:14am

    What about turnig the secudria farrari” i think that’s how u spell it” and the italia 430 into r.m.’s.

  3. Oct. 28, 8:26am

    The b spec seasonal event was pretty easy for me

  4. Oct. 28, 6:43am

    Has anyone noticed that if you play a replay of a crash, then rewind, the damage is inflicted again and again and again… fun for photo mode!


  5. Oct. 28, 3:00am

    With all that’s been happening with the game in just the last couple months I think this game will be tons of fun right up till GT6 comes out. Which in itself should raise the standard to the stratosphere.

  6. Oct. 28, 2:47am

    Yesssssss, they fixed the F10 vibrations. Awesome.

  7. Oct. 28, 1:13am

    I don’t mean to nit pick or w/e, its great that PD are doing things to improve the game, but has anyone noticed that you can’t drive cars on the kart track in time trial/arcade mode? Like anyone would’ve expected that if they let you drive it in GT mode and race up to 16 players in cars on the kart track, why not in arcade mode split screen or time trial? it’d be cool if anyone has an answer to that, but I guess PD is already doing more than enough so thumbs up for them!!!!

    • Oct. 28, 4:19am

      i would guess that the track is just too narrow for more than one car to fit into sideways.

    • Oct. 28, 5:35am
      David Brooks

      yes, I did notice that. i wanted to race karts split screen with a friend in arcade mode but the kart tracks aren’t there to be selected – can only get them in the special event. Seems a shame.

  8. Oct. 27, 11:57pm

    …Has anyone thought the B-Spec races were…too damn easy…?

    • Oct. 28, 1:14am

      There’s nothing wrong with that lol

    • Oct. 28, 3:28pm

      Pick a car that is lower PP than the field, I’ve seen lots of complaining about A-spec B-spec being “easy”… well duh when you pick the highest perfoming vehicle you can ofcourse its easy. Try matching performance or under, see how that goes. Won’t be so “easy”

  9. Oct. 27, 11:48pm

    In answer to your question Supertom14:-

    I used the Merc Evo 190 II on the High Speed Ring, Amemiya Asparadrink RX7 with full race tranny etc and a few tuned items like med turbo and stiffened body. Used JGTC R34 Xanavi R35 GT-R for Tokyo, I tried my XJ13 race car but it kept spinning out even with a level 30 Bob. I caught 1st on the penultimate lap as it was The Zonda R LM and it was lapping 16 secs faster than me to begin with!

    • Oct. 27, 11:51pm


  10. Oct. 27, 11:35pm

    never mind

    • Oct. 27, 11:55pm

      Used my S2000 (Premium) with no turbo–has full-custom trans and drivetrain with an adj. LSD; weight reduction and engine work with all the trimmings (intake, exhaust, etc.) and ride-height suspension. I’m pushin’ about 340+. To me, it worked really well for both tracks. Won 1st place. For Tokyo R246, I used RM Corvette with 710+ hp…

  11. Oct. 27, 11:33pm

    for the 500pp in Rome

  12. Oct. 27, 11:32pm

    what is a good car to use in the Bspec event

  13. Oct. 27, 11:29pm

    Can I make request to have kart space playable with two player in arcade, please!!!

  14. Oct. 27, 9:51pm
    Dominic Toretto

    b-spec sucks, i basically have to babysit the tv cause he keeps crashing!!

    • Oct. 27, 11:17pm

      Hahahahahaha! That’s true!

  15. Oct. 27, 9:41pm

    Just wanted to say thanks for the stealth cars and great job on the DLC. Please give us the Test Track (with drag racing capabilities). It would also be interesting to be able to put the Test Track in a sort of Sunday driving mode where there are random model cars driving at random speeds, kind of like what you see on the real life nurburgring and the autobahn. Also, would be nice to get Seattle! Other than that more 2011, 2012, and other concept cars please!

  16. Oct. 27, 9:21pm

    Sweet, better way to get the penultimate trophy, raise Bspec to top of career :D
    Amazing updates as always, best games developer around. FACT.

  17. Oct. 27, 7:44pm

    was 0 in b spec until this after noon then sesional now im level 22 in bspec AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Oct. 27, 6:39pm
    GT Pro

    Why no Test Course?

    • Oct. 27, 11:26pm

      it will come..

  19. Oct. 27, 4:32pm

    I just can’t wait to see what peoples’ X2011 times are on Kart Space. xD

  20. Oct. 27, 3:39pm


    • Oct. 27, 5:55pm

      I think it already is :D

  21. Oct. 27, 3:12pm

    I would love to see real life1/4 mile drag strips with real pass times on gt5, like on ”pinks’.’

  22. Oct. 27, 2:59pm

    Honestly, my biggest bug-fix for this update is the endurance race saves. I was pissed right off when I raced 6 hours of Tsukuba and then had to go back to reality, only to find when I resumed the race that my race was doomed because the AI decided it was going to drive for me and then never pit again. Seriously, I must have tried about 4 or 5 times after that to suspend / resume a race after only doing 1 lap, and it never worked, even when I coasted into the pit stop at 20 km / h.

    I’ve tested it now and it works great! I no longer fear the endurance races, this is the big update that I have been waiting for.

    • Dec. 10, 7:47am
      GT5 X1

      Aww that must suck. I hate the Tsukuba endurances too! Good luck with future races!

  23. Oct. 27, 12:53pm

    Spa and Kart I/II seasonals please. Thanks!

    • Oct. 27, 4:21pm

      I highly doubt they’ll make seasonals using tracks that some people may not have access to

    • Oct. 27, 10:58pm

      yeah there’s no way there’ll be seasonals for the dlc’s. unless the sales dry up perhaps, and they want/need more revenue. i wish there would be because i could spend half my life on spa, and the other half on the ‘seizure’ inducing jap go-kart traks. peace

    • Oct. 28, 4:23am

      I don’t see why not, i mean sometimes there’s two seasonals in a week – i would love to see a Spa 2 or 4 hour endurance series – each event for a different class of car.

  24. Oct. 27, 12:20pm
    Eric W

    Update 2.01 broke rolling starts. The cars won’t accelerate beyond pace speed. This needs to be fixed!

    • Oct. 27, 12:42pm

      Can any one else confirm this?

    • Oct. 27, 12:44pm
      Eric W

      We’re discussing it in the forum.

  25. Oct. 27, 12:09pm

    To Kaz and his crew! One of the few game producers who sticks with his visiion and trys to keep his gamers happy.
    It really is Kaz’s game. He just let us share it with him. He is still commeted to making it everything he envisioned.

    But he also takes our coments, and those that make since he tries to act on. The only thing we need to know in order to understand him is simply that he “LOVES” cars. And I suspect competition involved in racing too. LUCK FOR US.

    So Kaz, how about some FIA GT class 1,2, and 3 cars and paint schemes? Make sure the power/torque numbers match per class. And for tracks, Special Stage Route 11, Lime Rock Park, Silverstone or San Luis circuit, in Argentina?

    • Oct. 27, 11:01pm

      unfortunately NFS SHIFT 2 has the contract for those cars aswell as the license to porsche. maybe it’ll be in gt6 or dlc once the contract runs out, whenever that’ll be. fingers crossed

  26. Oct. 27, 11:49am

    I love the interactive eye-candy B-spec presents..thanks PD!

  27. Oct. 27, 11:44am

    B-Spec was easier than I thought.

    Stratos, RUF BTR, BMW McLaren GTR – in that order.


    • Oct. 27, 11:28pm

      b-spec was never hard..the hardest is the stupid nascar races..omg that was a piss off, other than that everything was easy, breezy, beautiful cover girl =D

    • Oct. 28, 6:42am

      Agreed – the NASCAR stuff was… painful. :D

    • Oct. 28, 10:14am

      I never had problems with the B-Spec NASCAR or FGT Championship.

  28. Oct. 27, 11:23am

    I noticed a glitch. I was in an online lobby for over an hour and when I came out my clock in the upper right hand corner said it was hour 30:00 and it was day 115 of the month. Thanks to that my sign in bonus went back down to 110%. I have been working hard at keeping it at 200%.

    • Oct. 27, 12:03pm

      Working hard. lol
      All you have to do is turn on the power and start the game.
      Sucks about the glitch though, never heard of that one. :(

    • Oct. 27, 11:02pm

      c’mon honday guy, outlaw may have pulled a tendon in a finger, sidelining him for a week lol weird glitch. haven’t heard anything like that before. maybe its ur ps, rather than gt5

  29. Oct. 27, 11:12am

    is it possible to use the dlc in both accounts pls respond? because i want to buy a card half with a friend

    • Oct. 27, 5:56pm

      no i don’t believe it is atm :)

    • Oct. 27, 11:03pm

      sorry batman, robin’s going to have to buy his own DLC

  30. Oct. 27, 10:48am

    good work FIX ! love it!

  31. Oct. 27, 9:58am

    Thanks Polyphony, you guys have out done yourselves in less than a year and are still giving us more and more.

    • Oct. 27, 12:34pm

      ^ +1

    • Oct. 27, 11:03pm


    • Oct. 28, 10:12am

      ^ lol

  32. Oct. 27, 9:44am

    So I assume that the DLC is still tied to the game disc region? Maybe some one should ask Kaz if they can implement buying DLC from another region.

  33. Oct. 27, 9:22am

    challenger L.S.D. PLZ

  34. Oct. 27, 9:17am

    Why can’t i get buy the L.S.D. for the dodge challenger R.M.

  35. Oct. 27, 9:07am

    Awesome! Oh and thanks for featuring my picture. (^_^’)

  36. Oct. 27, 8:41am

    B-Spec races? Sounds pretty interesting.

  37. Oct. 27, 8:11am

    This looks so awesome, I hope I get a psn $20 card soon. I’m dying to get the DLC. But this makes me feel super comfortable. :) Thank you Kaz and PD. You guys are the greatest ever. :D “Hi five for you all!”

    • Oct. 27, 8:42am

      Y’re right! Love u PD guys!

    • Oct. 27, 9:12am


  38. Oct. 27, 8:01am


    • Oct. 27, 11:07am

      Try that… Arcade mode, select Spa and pick the Gran Turismo GT car. Make sure you put damage to heavy. 20 laps minimum ;)

    • Oct. 28, 11:30am
      SZRT Ice

      Woulld be a good way for those who haven’t bought the DLC to test it out. Good idea!

  39. Oct. 27, 7:54am

    I predicted a B-Spec Seasonal would happen…

  40. Oct. 27, 7:02am

    sky is rubbish . cant sign in still. been a day now?

  41. Oct. 27, 7:01am

    Why is my car driving itself after resuming an endurance race?

  42. Oct. 27, 6:59am


  43. Oct. 27, 6:51am

    Forza 4 is still better.Im a get me an xbox.

    • Oct. 27, 7:36am

      You go do that then, buy A grapy Xbox, buy A copy of F4where the cars maybe look nice but the tracks look like grap. And overpay A10 for they DLC which you will need to do the play the game. They deliberately leave parts of the game and bring it out as DLC, and ripyou off.

    • Oct. 27, 8:17am

      Please don’t be jealous of the good direction Kaz and PD are heading too with thier fans and us. We know you are. Now off with you. Do not need someone like you comparing games all the time. U_U

    • Oct. 27, 9:35am

      Got an xbox, let us know what you think once you start playing Forza 4 ;)

    • Oct. 27, 12:51pm

      I got Forza and played it a lot for about a week and put it away, probably for good. It just cannot hang with GT5. With it’s DLC for Forza 4 you buy it, download it, then once in the game you still have to buy the cars AGAIN with credits earned or purchase MScredits. It is a scam. It can be fun, I would recommend it for those that are not big into car games. GT5 is the best car game ever, just keep the seasonals and DLC coming!

    • Oct. 27, 3:28pm

      yeah ur psychoooooooooooooooo “KAZ” is a vetaran at this thank them(people of gt) for pushing the envolope if wasn’t for the idea being creative you wouldn’t have forza.foeza vs GT5 NO CONTEST IT’S LIKE ASKING A FAT GUY TO DO A HURDLE LOL.JUST THINK FORZA IS JUST FOLLOWING THE LEADER AND GT5 INNOVATING AND FORZA JUST ASKING FOR PIECE.

    • Oct. 27, 5:38pm

      Look its a Foreskin troll.

    • Oct. 27, 8:43pm

      Go to hell and burn for a eternity. Xbox is tool of the demon.

    • Oct. 27, 11:19pm

      Seriously: why do you keep on answering these comments??? Can’t you see they’re only trolling?

  44. Oct. 27, 6:50am

    Thanks for the update PD! There is just one thing I noticed…
    “- Corrected an issue with the Hybrid System simulation on the Toyota Prius G Touring Selection ’03, Toyota Prius G ’09, Toyota Prius Touring Car.”

  45. Oct. 27, 6:31am

    Just drove the seasons events, is fun for once.
    The first two races were exciting until the last lap, midway between the last round on the first position.
    The third and last race was to easy, in round four of the ten I had the first position, and after ten laps and I had four cars lapt.

  51. Oct. 27, 4:56am

    Not sure if someone mentioned this already, and I didn’t see it listed anywhere in this update or the last one for that matter, but maybe they snuck it in on me when I wasnt looking, but anyone else notice:

    **you can now take photos at x2 magnification in the race photo mode, not just the photo travel mode like it was before?**

    sorry if this was already covered.

    HKS racer

    I found a bug. After 2.01 the game reset to default Aero Settings if u switch from Setting A to B or C.

  53. Oct. 27, 4:54am

    – Expanded the car restrictions in the Online Lounge …. Thank you very very much !!!! Hell yeah!

  54. Oct. 27, 4:34am

    Im not complaining – i love the seasonal events and the B spec one is a good idea – something different. But i would love a rally seasonal event even if it was just a time trial or drift trial. Chamonix and the eiger full trakes are awesome but think ive only drove round them twice, compared to tsukuba which ive had to drive round about 100 times and i havent done the 4hr and 9hr endurance races yet!

  55. Oct. 27, 4:04am

    Cool! An other update for the last update :) When will we get the update for this update? Can’t wait lol

  56. Oct. 27, 3:56am

    It is my birthday and I just got a giftticket from GT. love this game :D

    • Oct. 27, 8:25am

      Happy birthday buddy. :D You see, that’s the thing I like about Kaz, PD, and GT5. They actually gift you birthday gifts when it’s your birthday. :) From my birthday, I was gifted a 1991 Mazda 787B. To this day I still thank Kaz and PD for gifting me such a present. I love it dearly and will always remember it. ;) That’s also why I love GT5 so very much. It’s the best ever.

    • Oct. 27, 11:28am

      It’s not quite so brilliant if you were born in 1979. Anyone need a 32 year old, orange Honda Civic? ;)

    • Oct. 27, 12:17pm

      I was born in 75 and unfortunately for me it’s the only year without a single car in GT5, so I got nothing at all. Don’t complain!

    • Oct. 27, 1:29pm

      @Dave; prety much understand you :) got my self an ’78 Nissan Fairlady Z 280 :D but its ok.
      Was playing Call of Duty for years now, paid lot of money for mappacks and stuff and still no gifttickets from Infinity ;) am just surpraised :)
      (damn my english sucks :D)

    • Oct. 27, 1:34pm

      Yeah, my birthday was yesterday. Got myself a 1981 Toyota Celica.

    • Oct. 27, 4:26pm

      @AnPrionsaBeag I was wondering if there was such an unfortunate year in the game while marvelling at my “new” Civic! Unlucky pal!

    • Oct. 28, 3:44am

    • Oct. 28, 10:09am

    It’s all great but with one exception…. bloom and other effects from Photo Mode Spec 2.0 are gone again :/

    • Oct. 27, 9:10am

      No, not really? Aww come on…

  59. Oct. 27, 3:06am
    Ben Rogue

    I installed the update and now Kart Space I/II have completely disappeared from the game. I can’t “reinstall” them either… Spa is still there though…wtf is up with that?

  60. Oct. 27, 2:41am

    @BWX I do agree. I never liked the whole Bspec idea but I applaud everything else in the update

    • Oct. 27, 8:54pm

      I love the B-spec, it’s a whole different way of racing. It gives you clues into how the AI of the game work, and as you watch in “driver cam” mode (not regular replay mode, but cockpit, or whatever) you really get a sense of the failing (or awesomeness) of your particular driver. Learning how to improve their lap times helps to improve your own, and understand what tires and cars can handle what courses and turns at what speeds. I learned so much just from trying to level up my B-spec people (I think we’re around big level 13 now woo hoo) but it’s also fun to name your drivers and outfit them: my Connie Chung driver is always in pink, whereas Vincent Price tends to wear gray… :)

  61. Oct. 27, 2:33am


  62. Oct. 27, 2:30am

    never really liked the idea of B-spec in seasonal’s………and now I KNOW I HATE THE IDEA!!!!! i really look forward to really racing the seasonals myself. All the other stuff they have done is FANTASTIC!

  63. Oct. 27, 2:29am

    16 car NASCAR on Kart Space? :D

    • Oct. 27, 5:02pm

      LOL That would be epic. The crashes we would have and the backups lol

  64. Oct. 27, 1:57am


    Something very funny happened to me! I now have K.Yamauchi as a B-Spec driver! Is this one of a kind or is easy to get?

    • Oct. 27, 2:56am

      No I have him too, I was pretty proud of my very own Kaz, but now I feel there maybe a whole farm of them somewhere…

    • Oct. 27, 2:56am

      I had him for a while lol
      its just luck but eventually ull get it if u really wanted him…

    • Oct. 27, 2:57am

      tring tp get T.Tsuchiya

    • Oct. 27, 2:58am

      oh wait I have T. Tsuchiya
      need K. Tsuchiya lol

  65. Oct. 27, 1:34am

    Great, a bugfix update.. BUT what the hell?? No A-Spec seasonal at all? B-Spec sucks.

    • Oct. 27, 1:54am

      OMG!!!! I love this game. picking up my g27 Friday, been plying with a DFGT since release date but now im gonna really feel the fire. XD… thank you everyone at PD you guys are the best. I got all the DLC but i don’t want to play untill I pick up the g27.

    • Oct. 27, 2:09am

      Having a G27 is great, I have a G25, but with B-Spec it doesn’t make a difference. That proves B-Spec is worthless.

    • Oct. 27, 2:54am

      But with B-Spec you can earn some much needed cash while making a cup of coffee, or out to the shops, or even taking a dump… OH yes, with B-Spec you maybe on the can, but youre still a fan *THUMBS UP AND SMILES*

    • Oct. 27, 7:11am

      ^^ OH yes, with B-spec you may be on the can, but you”re still a fan”. Kaz would like to make this the official B-spec slogan… what better way to attract more gamers to this feature.

    • Oct. 27, 12:30pm

      lol !! you guys are insane.

  66. Oct. 27, 1:29am


    Those of you that complain so easily and obviously don’t work anywhere near IT in general need to understand that these issues that are fixed in this update were probably known FAR before the public release of Spec 2.0 and take a TON of man-hours to complete. Show some gratitude.

    • Oct. 27, 2:02am


    • Oct. 27, 4:22am

      esh, you got the point. +1 for you! KAZ is the MAN.

    • Oct. 27, 8:30am

      That’s the same thing I thought too. :) +2 for you. :D You can always count on Kaz and PD. ;)

    • Oct. 27, 6:04pm

      You aint kiddin. I’m a software developer and I’m sitting at work trying to fix some 2 year old code myself.

    • Oct. 27, 6:05pm

      … as I … type??? You all know what I mean.

  67. Oct. 27, 1:22am

    Time to dust off the VW bus for Kart Space!

    Thanks KAZ

  68. Oct. 27, 12:53am

    did it get rid of the freeze/crash issue at the start of some races?

  69. Oct. 27, 12:48am

    Slipstream still sucks.i hate that.HATE.

  70. Oct. 27, 12:46am

    Lap time of 16.011 seconds with the X2011 on Kart Space II. I drive with comfort mediums though, it’s SSSSSOOOOOOO much easier to drive with those.

  71. Oct. 27, 12:27am

    Ok wow found a glitch already!!!! On daytona in multiple rooms my car will not go over 74 mph, it shows me only part way on gas. Reports of this are coming in from my friends too! Anybody else?

    • Oct. 27, 8:08am

      I noticed the same 74 MPH limiter at Daytona. Way to go PD!

    • Oct. 27, 8:44am

      bmoe, I started a thread in the forum. Please comment there. I’m experiencing the same issue.

    • Oct. 27, 11:02am

      I can’t find it!

    • Oct. 27, 5:48pm

      That happen to me too, just press the “START” Boton on you pad/wheel before the race starts

    • Oct. 27, 5:49pm


  72. Oct. 27, 12:19am

    LSD still doesn’t work on the challenger TC…

  73. Oct. 27, 12:10am

    This is turning out to be a good year!

  74. Oct. 27, 12:08am

    I hope to c more b spec seasonals cuz I’m bored with my bob that has beaten all races xcept for formula gt champ cuz I need to fix it first but other that b spec isn’t appealing anymore. Nice way to liven it up again and made it harder cuz the selection iznt far from ai selection whick makes insteresting since b spec an mostly beaten using cars 3x faster than ai lol. Yelp time to play

    Downloading now… Can’t wait to drift on kart track

  77. Oct. 27, 12:05am

    I guess I should really start using b-spec mode..

  78. Oct. 27, 12:05am

    Thanks now all the lobbies are drifting at Kart space WOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

  79. Oct. 27, 12:00am

    Wow FM4 sure seemed to spark a fire under Kaz’s ass.. win win for us..

    • Oct. 27, 12:37am

      That’s why competition always trumps a monopoly. Likewise, Forza wouldn’t be of the same quality as it is without GT looming shadow.

    • Oct. 27, 9:45am

      Interesting point.
      It wouldn’t surprise me if Sony put pressure on PD to release Spec 2 and the DLC’s at the time they did in an effort to steal some of Forza’s thunder on release day. It doesn’t bother me, as we end up getting new features, cars, tracks etc

      Fingers crossed we get a livery editor in the next major update.

    An issue I’ve noticed is that with some standard cars, (mostly large cars) specifically the Dodge RAM 1500, you don’t see exterior parts of the car from the interior view; when you look behind, you can’t see the bed in the back, just empty space behind the rear window…

    • Oct. 27, 6:39am

      Thats because the rearview cam is on the back of the car. It’s not on the same place as the frontview cam… It’s not the greatest idea to do that in my oppinion… And if we talk about looking behind. I don’t see my car’s interiour in the rearview mirror in cockpit view. And i don’t see the sides of the car in my outside rearview mirrors, but I guess it would use to much RAM to do that. So it’s not really a PD issue more of a ‘sony had their head up their ass when they created the PS3 and put just 512MB of RAM inside’ – issue…

    • Oct. 28, 12:52am

      Well, in the interior view of the dodge RAM 1500 looking backwards I could see the the rear window and the supports for the roof, but not what was behind it – the bed of the truck. And you can see through the window, so the camera isn’t at the very back/rear bumper of the car…

  82. Oct. 26, 11:43pm

    this 112mb download is taking me nearly 45mins…typical of gt5 or do i need some new network hardware??

    • Oct. 27, 12:01am

      Mine took around 3 minutes, a little slower than usual (honestly).

    • Oct. 27, 12:07am

      too my system less than two minutes
      but other updates that have been smaller have taken longer
      i find it always varies greatly

    • Oct. 27, 12:29am

      32 seconds to DL

    • Oct. 27, 12:32am

      Took only two minutes on my end.

    • Oct. 27, 12:51am

      Yes, it seems your network config could use some work.

      Similar to others, it only took about 40 seconds for me.

    • Oct. 27, 11:05am
      Scozia Stradale

      You need new hardware man took me like 2-3mins

    • Oct. 27, 4:58pm

      Took me 8 minutes.

    • Oct. 27, 11:27pm

      Only took me 3 seconds to download and install. Weird…

  83. Oct. 26, 11:31pm

    Awesome! My friend (who just got a G28 yesterday) was complaining of all of that stuff! Good news for him!

  84. Oct. 26, 11:31pm

    Nice Update. Thanks PD.

  85. Oct. 26, 11:29pm

    YES! A new and better way to cash grind while doing homework!

  86. Oct. 26, 11:27pm

    if only my recently received replacement machine worked, id be booting this up now, but no ive gotta get in touch with sony yet again and tell them the machine they sent as a screwed up bd drive :@

  87. Oct. 26, 11:26pm

    – Corrected an issue where the driver hand motion did not match the steering wheel motion.


    • Oct. 26, 11:51pm

      ” OH MY GOD ” is what I thought so too, but I think they meant the “hand motion” & “steering wheel motion” in the game…not the DFGT or w/e steering wheel you’re using.


    • Oct. 27, 6:32am

      I think Catlin means it is pretty OH MY GOD that they put time in something that small and that there are more important things to fix. However I can’t name anything that is important and isn’t in that list. xD

    • Oct. 27, 12:25pm

      no, thats not small. When you crank the wheel with some gusto and the onscreen driver hands/wheel just slowly rotate about half of your actual distance– it can be a bit distracting. Concentration is key, grasshoppaaa..

      I hope this is what has actually been remedied.

    • Oct. 27, 5:37pm


      it is. the wheel animation has been given a dose of speed. Like, Derrelle Revis-type speed. Hell to the yes.

  88. Oct. 26, 11:25pm

    I literarily spit on my screen saying “B-spec Seasonal?!” out loud. Didn’t see that coming…

  89. Oct. 26, 11:25pm

    So, what about the LSD settings on the TC cars?

  90. Oct. 26, 11:24pm

    At least none of the tracks in the new seasonal are Tsukuba

  91. Oct. 26, 11:24pm

    B spec seasonal? Bad ass

  92. Oct. 26, 11:21pm

    Im really falling back in love with GT5…this is awesome more dlc pd!!!

  93. Oct. 26, 11:17pm

    Not to nitpick, but is this an improvement?

    “In the Open Lobby, it is no longer possible to vote to kick out the person who created the room.”

    If the host goes out to take a crap and is gone for 30 minutes, why should we all have to sit there?

    • Oct. 26, 11:24pm

      So you can hear his/her response of how good it was.

    • Oct. 26, 11:27pm

      ^^^^ Yeah, there should be an option to “temporarily change leader”, and vote on who, and for how long, based on the average votes. It could be overridden by the actual leader when he gets back.

    • Oct. 26, 11:40pm

      Or like an auto host. Somewhat like the GRID servers.

    • Oct. 26, 11:47pm
      SZRT Ice

      Or, if you don’t like the way the “Host” is handling “His Room”, leave and “Create Your Own”.

    • Oct. 27, 12:24am

      @SZRT Ice

      Well, sometimes the host just leaves his game running and everyone just sits there… This is especially annoying when you’re having fun with the other players and the lobby has great settings – if you leave then you’ll have to spend 10 minutes or so creating a new lobby with all of its settings, and unless you add up to 14 people as your friends, then its really hard to find those other players again.

    • Oct. 27, 12:33am

      Not hard to find those players when you tell them the new room’s name and attributes/restrictions.

    • Oct. 27, 1:07am

      Ya the no Kicking host thing I’m not liking too much. I been in rooms where the host just disappears for hours and won’t start the race or he’s the biggest idiot in the room

    • Oct. 27, 3:11am

      Then leave his room and create your own. Geez the nerve of some people.

    • Oct. 27, 3:25am
      Grand Prix

      This is a brilliant feature. It means people can actually set tire restriction to Sports tires without being kicked out of their own rooms.

    • Oct. 27, 4:15am
      HKS racer

      Sport Soft and even Comfort Soft… You noobs out there get ready

    • Oct. 27, 8:33am

      I’ve waited for that. :D Yay no more depanding about “worring if others wear super softs in races.” Sweet. Great shot Kaz and PD. :D

    • Oct. 27, 1:41pm

      this is what the “Automatic Race Timer” function is for.

      when I step away from my PS3 while I’m hosting, I set it up for 6-10 minutes before each race. thus, creating a room that keeps the races going even when the host is not there.

    • Oct. 27, 2:48pm

      its very good update! i had been kicked seveler times by some kids.. who think that driving with driving aids ON is cool… :( if you dont like hosting just change the room… yes there are alot of bad rooms but there is alot of good ones!

    • Oct. 27, 3:27pm

      Well there was a situation where I was in a room with a number of other people all enjoying some good racing when the host left… putting the only Frenchman in charge. We wanted to start the race and he wanted to continue to do hot laps, even though we tried asking him to start the race in French and we even started ganging up on him and ramming him into the wall so he would get the point… finally we rallied everyone together to vote him out of the room so things could start to move smoothly again.

      I think the feature should be changed to “Anyone who isn’t the original host of the room can be kicked.” So in the event that the original host leaves, we don’t all have to leave to start a new room too… especially since we’re not friends and it’s silly to add each other on PSN just to race together for a day.

    • Oct. 28, 5:20am

      Snaeper – agree!

    • Oct. 28, 1:07pm

      That’s funny Snaeper!

    • Nov. 14, 8:21am

      Whats the point of b spec. I mean I only raced the ones that gave me a car I wanted when u win, but I really always fall asleep doing them

  94. Oct. 26, 11:16pm

    X2010s on Kart Space FTW.

    • Oct. 27, 1:09am

      Jay Leno Tankcar is even more impressive :D

    • Oct. 27, 2:31am

      Is it weird that I hate Jay Leno and therefor have never driven that car? Is it sweet?

    • Oct. 27, 2:27pm

      ToplessGT – yes very weird!

  95. Oct. 26, 11:15pm

    “Corrected various other issues regarding the update and the DLC.”

    I hope the Track Settings button is no longer an instant disconnect button for us DLC users.

  96. Oct. 26, 11:15pm

    I knew Kaz still cared for this game :) Look at all those issues that were fixed!

    • Oct. 27, 8:33am

      I agree. :)

    • Oct. 27, 10:13am

      Is it just me,….or do the shadows get better with every update?….I dont think PD announces graphical updates

    • Oct. 27, 2:27pm

      I notice some minor changes in graphics! but very little changes! it does get better..

  97. Oct. 26, 11:15pm

    Well isnt this just amazing. Thanks PD !!! <3

    • Oct. 27, 3:24am

      Yep, this just shows how good GT6 is going to be.

      Thanks PD for your support!

    • Oct. 27, 6:37am

      Agreed! Thank you PD for soooo many updates!! :D :D

  98. Oct. 26, 11:13pm

    Awesome can drive cars on Kart tracks, did not expect that, but have to wait days before downloading.

  99. Oct. 26, 11:09pm

    I’m going to try and drift on Kart Space now! :D

    • Oct. 27, 11:53am

      I was thinking along those lines with the Dodge Ram as well.

    • Oct. 27, 1:27pm

      No way. I’m stoked about the B-spec Special event!. Good way to grind for racing suits and helmets!
