Earlier than expected and just a few hours before the release of a prominent competitor in the US, the spec 2.0 patch for Gran Turismo 5 has gone live on the PlayStation Network and is available for download now.
Should point out, seems to be staggered. US isn't live yet if GTPlanet is correct, but I have it downloading as we speak.
may be simply an issue of server propagation. Maintenance was done at the same time on all regions.
Im downloading now 1192MB !! cant wait
This is where PS+ comes in handy. I'll wake up to the full download installed.
+1GB is too much, sadly I'll way to dd in the morning, GTP is CRAZY! shots of interior standard cars are making me more eager to dd now, load times are reduced, physics got better, standard cars have interior views, 3 set ups per car for customization, DAMN! too good! THX KAZ!!!!
GT-Planet: http://www.gtplanet.net/gra... Including improved physics and AI? GT5 2.0 FTW!!! :D
Physics HAVE improved! Impressing! Full wet tyres and intermediates actually work now. The insame amounts of understeering are history and they added the option to tone down the rediculous amount of slip stream. Good work, PD! But sadly there are some weird things to the patch too: I find it a very good idea to restrict tuning options in online races, but if you do so, you have to race with traction control. That's not really smart!
Wow! the loading into the races/track are super fast now in comparison to how long they used to work. Impressive!
i wanna see Turn 10 release free cars, improved physics/graphics and improve the car models
I have to correct my last post. It IS possible to restrict tuning without having to use traction control. Sorry.
US is live now.
and the servers are congested lol :D
I'm gonna get it ASAP. GT5 is still a great game and we keep getting FREE upgrades. I don't mind DLC that's free. It's the paid kind that kind of irks me.
just finished updating now my game doesnt start *sigh* fkn great
yeahh ok. i highly doubt it. but i guess it could be possible
if its true and it still hasnt fixed, then delete the update from the game data/utility folder and backup your save.
switch your ps3 internet connection off/ do not log onto psn then see if the game loads, do this before deleting downloaded data
ok ima try those things now. brb edit: i just tried easterns way and it seems to be working. thanks man
This kind of thinks happens when: a) you suffered a disconnect or other error during the download. The data get's corrupted. b) you downloaded DLC or update from a compatible region in the past (i.e update american game in a mexican account) but them proceed to download new content or update from the other region compatible (i.e update american game on an american account). The data don't match regions and you'll get error messages while PSN verifications occur. On B case you normally can connect offline, but if you tried to connect even once, sometimes the game will not start anymore give the same region related messages. I have had this problem with SOCOM 4 last update. Just remember to take all your updates and add-ons from the same account (don't matter in which one you play).
Oops, I meant "This kind of THINGS happen when:". In before the Grammar Gestapo.
I'm getting my gt5 back from my bro and replaying it!! Wooooot!!! Seems they are earnest about updating and making gt5 better!!! Hopefully there be more to come and dlc car packs!! I bought all mdc:la car packs they are worthy investments.
Clearly, reviews now, will be 9 to 10/10 for the most part (9 metacritics with biased ones ;))
My internet is one of the slowest of any company in the world(because I live in Mexico). Its a 1MB bandwidth. I can predict that it will take AGES to download this patch.
Downloading as we speak baby... ftw... Can't wait to check this out.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
that's how you do actual dlc give us options to choose at prices which won't hurt our future purchases. can't wait i gave my copy of gt5 to someone now i need to buy it again soon
Plus downloaded it for me, sweet as a nut. The loading times for races now are amazing.
Same here. Mine was preset and I am up loading up GT5 right now.
Huge update, glad to see devs working on a title a year after launch. Especially a free one! :)
Not to troll and as a 360 and PS3 owner, you get A LOT of stuff on PS3 for free if Sony's made it ....but they're still overly Japanese in terms of game design in so many ways which makes them a bit too old school sometimes.
Their Japanese style is what I love about Sony.
Nothing wrong with old school... Old school was when young kids respected their elderly.
No!!!!! My mate still has my copy.:( lucky guys that get this patch
And it's FREE! Imagine that.
Imagine? Its real :-P and i am downloading it now!!
it have to be free. it's just update
Nice. I won't be able to try it out till I'm back home in December, but my biggest gripe was the lack of G27 support. I can't wait!
Maintainence still ongoing though.
Get off my bandwidth jerks 100 min to go lol Yay 9 percent and 90 minutes
Holy smokes I've done it now...download complete!!!1!!!1 Edit: Whoa menus are blazing fast
Downloading right now. 1192mb if anyone is wonderin. Big up to my G27 brethren, I really felt your pain in principle.
Just finished downloading it! :P It's going to be interesting to see the improvements they've made. :)
Keep us posted on how the update is...
he only has one bubble, its going to be pretty hard to do that
track loading times seem much shorter to me, is it the same for you?
On gaf, they're saying load times have decreased, but possibly a tad longer once you hit start.
HELL YEAH they are much faster, they are blazing fast now!!!
I walked away and came back to an error, now i gotta start over. Estimated time:74619 minutes remaining Edit: I think i will wait till the morning because i cant get past 0% now
It's cool man....make 7000 sammiches Edit: 30% and 70 minutes Edit: hmmm...that's no good
mine went quick, took 5 mins and is installing now, cant wait.
About 10 mins....AT&T internet :-/
This might be the update that gets me interested in Gran Turismo again. I'll hop on and download that sucker after MNF.
Awesome, I know a LOT of people that are going to be interested in hearing this.
and this game needed this update no doubt hate to say this... GT5 was rushed and it shows but if this update fix it , then is time to get my wheel back into action
5 years and it was "rushed"... Goes to show how high the bar is set for GT. I like the release one title per generation and update it approach.
It wan't rushed just poorly organized, the menu, loading, online, car views and sense of speed, lighting, shadows, art style all need work - regardless though, it is still the best console racing SIM and does many things magnificently. I think Japanese devs this gen are getting 'it' fully - especially presentation, story (unrelated to GT), and online, but they're still gameplay champs.
The menu's just fine. Does it take a genius to figure it out or something?!
Physics feel a lot better now, the open top standards even have working guages in cock pit mode. The other standards are GT PSP with a wheel... at least they follow the frame of the car. Lots of little, but nice, improvements everywhere. Menu is definitely faster.
Top Gear Track has standing starts. About. Damn. Time.
time to start buying more standards me thinks
Did they fix those ugly jaggies
Shadows have definitely been improved... unless you mean the standards, in which case... no, they're still ugly.
Is this the one which allows save game during endurance races?
yes it is, but i hear that you have to go into the pit and pick suspend to make it happen
This is the largest update I've ever seen.
Battlefield BC2 was even bigger somewhere in the 1.8GB region. I literally **** bricks
I bought the Eye of Judgement for $7 and it has an update above the 3.5 GB region. I still haven't downloaded it.
oh noez! no wipers in standard cockpits, I just ran nur in the rain and it felt like star wars. The physics feel a touch different, good different though. Great free update. DLC coming next week, the 18th.
LOL! OMG, that is hilarious, didnt even think about that.
32%, can't wait.
The DLC has Spa!!!!!!!!!!! http://eu.gran-turismo.com/...
