Potential issue with GT Academy gift cars
Posted 07/11/2012 8:35 PM Post a reply Quote this post View Kerr's info
MasterGT just posted about a potential issue with GT Academy gift cars disappearing from your game save. Read below for advice.

A new issue seems to happen around the GT Academy gift cars that means we need to be careful.

After receiving an Academy car, before you do anything else, make a fresh back-up copy of your progress file and keep it safe. The new problem is that, if your game freezes and you don't have a way to recover because of a broken game save, there doesn't seem to be a way to recover the lost Academy car, either.

This issue has been reported, but I may not be told of a different solution, so protect your saves now.

If anyone finds a solution to the missing cars, please let me know.

hey guys i just activated my account here and ive brought some new ideas
in which we can improve the website.
example: people might know the name of the car but they might not know
what it looks like so i suggest we make it so we can put a pic of the
car on its information page

I'm fairly certain Kerr isn't going to add any of those

1. He hasn't had much time lately to do anything, even add the driveshaft option in the car setup menu, let alone anything he want's to do, he's made that clear before.

2. It has already been pondered about SOME sort of help forum that doesn't really follow forum rules where you just post in 1 spot. This is about the only place we can ask for help.

3. although pictures of the cars would help, what's the point? go to google images and search there if you need to know what it looks like... It would be more helpful to have a database of the car picture then the name under so people can visually find the car then figure out the name but this is not GTPlanet where I can't even make sense of how the site works, this site is designed to be simple...

4. Sorry, I tend to ramble... Welcome to the site...

Racing rig for less than $100 for me FREE...
Posted 08/25/2012 9:18 PM Post a reply Quote this post View Draghon's info
Hey guys, anyone see this video?

http://youtu.be/nEhsLcjZDew (<-this is how youtube's links are now, hmm...)

I went on Craigslist.org, found a guy who was getting rid of a bunch of good 2x4s then I mentioned I needed an office chair if he had one that was broke, he said "How about an old Crown Victoria seat?" I said "PERFECT!", YAYE for FREE STUFF!!!

You really ONLY need (4) 8 foot 2x4 inch planks and (1) 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick MDF 2x4 foot (notice where the FOOT and Inches are, it's not a typo), but you might want extra.
At Home Depot, this all would cost LESS than $25-$30...

The plans they have on their website are a bit off but the dimensions are spot on... They don't tell you where the screws go (3 types) but you can figure it out... There also is a LOT of room for expanding or contracting the dimensions from back to front but not really side to side...

I have built the cockpit, my back is killing me, when it is light out I will take pictures... 100% free to build cept for my time...

My dad had all the screws and the power tools, I had all the wood and time...

I haven't made it foldable yet to store out of the way, but I plan to go home, get some casters from my old office chair and put them on so I can roll it around for the mean time...

Pics will follow after sleep and daylight...
for sake of picture size I have edited this to link to a site you can view the pics at

http://insidesimracing.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=6688&start=50#p57286

Took me 5 hours on my own, no help, talking to a camera doing an FAQ on it. Took the originators of this 2-3 guys and 4 hours. I could have gotten it done with proper (New) materials in 3 hours I think.

Finished with slight mods:

Next on the list
Cup holder(s), shift mount, and e-brake mod.

Online Endurace races @ GTPlanet and Thank yous to Kerr

This is where I have been for the longest time. I was at GTPlanet doing these types of races. This also explains the lack of tuning challenges on the website. Feel free to come out here to race. I told them I came from here. Turns out some of the old members from this site are over there now. They sent their best regards to you Kerr thanking you for all the stuff you did for this site. They said if they could start over anywhere when it came to GT they would come here.

As Far as tuning challenges go, I'd decided to leave that in the hands of Draghon and Stigs since the last time i was on was April 2012.

For the people who don't care , well you just read it. So you do care.
So to Kerr, thank you for letting me use this site all these years. keep it up.
Have fun while you race others. If you don't why are you racing in the first place?
Final Year @ MS&T

Just an update on the rig I built, I have added a keyboard stand behind the area where the wheel goes and put rubber in places including the floor for grip or protection... I realized that it will NOT fit in my apartment so it's up for sale to whomever can pick it up...

I'm at hour 14:30~ lap 225~ of the 24 Le Mans A-Spec, my electricity is going to get cut off soon. I'm bored, I need someone to chat with while racing I think, hit me up on yahoo: un4givn_80, AIM: DraghonKerberos, or ICQ 562422443, then I could call you and chat via voice, I am also on Skype and Qik but I am almost never online. Qik people, I think it's online by default but I never use it, no reason to...

anyone in the bay area wanna help me knock out the final 24 hour race?


As soon as I finish this 24 hour race, I plan to pick up the torch for the tuner challenge, my plan is to start with typical street cars and starting with cars people would most likely buy for their real world 1st car...

A-spec Enduro, if you postpone the race then continue, it will tell you your fastest lap is the lap you just came into the pits on.

I need a FO94/H to go toe to toe with a F094/S not a really big deal but for though's who are going for 100% winning ratio and they have a F094/H in there garage that will save them a lot of time. For GT3! Something tells me that I should look at a tune for a 94/S? To be more precise it would have to win Formula GT, 100 points preferably! Seattle Circuit is my problem!
I know the rides are hot but for now you have to go to my garage for updates, look for "set up 8690", After I'm back on my Vacation I can look at the set up's I miss playing this game, the rush of smoking the tires !! >>>>>>Sony-Dual-Analog-Controller<<<<<<<

Hey, Kerr, it doesn't need to be fixed or anything, I just don't see why you have Ford (AU) if you are just going to list the car under Ford

2.08 changes that may affect old tunes:

Software update 2.08 brings with it the following new features, in addition to correcting bugs and other issues:

Now possible to select “Disable collisions” in the [Event Settings] of online races.
ID’s are now shown above cars when watching online races.
Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers “G25 Racing Wheel”, “G27 Racing Wheel”, “T500RS” and “TH8RS” has been adjusted.
Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars).
Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased.
Autopilot has been adjusted to prevent colliding with the wall when exiting the pit lane on the Tsukuba circuit.
Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height. (Vehicle height can be changed by adjusting ride height, either by installing a suspension kit or adjusting a full customizable suspension kit.)

There may be other non-specified ones, too.
Cheers,

MasterGT

Best "Standard" NSX (not including LMs and full race) that I have is the "Type S Zero '97" @ 2.28 P/W and the "Type S Zero '99" @ 2.29 P/W, everything else is in the 2.35+ range, with most in the 2.50-2.70

I don't have all the NSXs but I have a lot, just in case anyone is looking to get just the best of each car. anyone have a better one?
