    I've been trying to get through the license testing, some of those are pretty hard to get Gold on :eek: I think I need to tweak my Force Pro wheel settings.

    Yep, they are hard, but the catch is that it is possible to get gold :nutkick:.

    They are difficult, but definitely not impossible. The wheel makes things easier for me, I just haven't dialed it in yet (FF Settings are still off). Im halfway through iC, all Gold so far. Im only playing maybe 2-3hrs/week, if that. Its a good challenge.

    Code:
    An update to Gran Turismo 5 has been released. The contents are as follows:
    
    [Major Changes and New Features]
    ・Remote Racing
    [Remote Races] have been added to the bottom left of the [GT Mode] - [Community] screen. 
    Here you can start a fully automated B-Spec race using yours and your friends' "My Drivers", and gain rewards and experience from it.
    For details please see section 8-4 [Remote Races] in the [Manual] accessible from the main menu, and also the new "Remote Race" page on gran-tursimo.com, under the GT5 product information section.
    
    ・Remote Racing from a Web Browser 
    In [Remote Races], you can visit the official "gran-turismo.com" website using a web browser, and remotely control your PS3® at home. You can start races, monitor its progress and check results from the website. This is a new playing style allowing you to play Gran Turismo anywhere.
    Sign in from the [GT5 My Home] button on the upper right corner of the website to get started.
    
    ・Using the Course Maker in Online Races
    You can now use one of the "My Courses" created in [Course Maker] for your online races (in Open Lobby, My Lounge), or select themes and generate courses on the spot. (Please note you'll only be able to use My Courses created after this update).

    For details, see 6 -15 [Performance Points] in the [Manual] accessible from the main menu. 
    
    ・Increased Rewards and Experience Online

    ・More Penalties for Special Events
    Penalties for improper driving such as driving off course and hitting walls have been increased for the [Special Events] under [GT Mode] - [GT Life].
    
    ・Event Rewards and Experience Adjusted
    The rewards and experience gained in [License] and [Special Events] in [GT Mode] - [GT Life] have been adjusted. Experience for A-Spec and B-Spec events have been increased, while rewards have been reduced back down to levels seen before the 1.05 update.
    
    ・Car Loan in Events
    In A-Spec, B-Spec and [Special Events] in [GT Mode] - [GT Life], you can now borrow cars that your Friends have set to share with friends. 
    For details see 6-16 [Borrowing and Lending Cars] in the [Manual] accessible from the main menu.
    
    ・More Car Settings
    Gear ratio adjustment, power limiters, and weight adjustment have been added to the settings. For details see [18. Settings Guide] in the [Manual] accessible from the main menu.
    
    ・Multi-Monitor Feature
    From [Options] - [Hardware] - [Multi-Monitor], you can now access the multi-monitor display settings using multiple PS3™ systems.

    thanks for the info. I like the increase of xp on GT life events, could use that myself. I havent played in a while. Most racing lately ive been on dirt 2. and now shift 2 looks good haha, even though i have gt5.

    Im getting a 46" tv tomorrow. so can play on something bigger than my 24" monitor. I am looking forward to that. Though I ordered a wheel stand on ebay that ill need to wait for before I can play :(

    oh cmon, don't be lazy. I'll admit it does take a while, but it makes it rewarding. It seems level 30 for the x2010 is a ways away at 23. but it will feel so good to drive once i earn it.

    Currently stuck on Jeff Gordons nascar school on the expert races! its difficult!!! fantastic game loved the used car market...found a nice Nissan Bluebird from the 70s :respect:

    btw whats a better res for gaming...1080i or 720p...

    did you buy the honda civic type r (EK) ? Very nice car when u get some mods on it!

    btw I noticed with used cars...make sure you get the oil changed before you drive it..you'll get around 10hp extra...on my Nismo 400R it gave me 20hp for an oil change?! alot for 250cr lol

    It's not just used cars, it's all cars when you first buy them, even brand new ones. Been that way since GT3. I've seen almost 50hp on some cars.

    Hey all, just in case you're unaware. Right now the seasonal events give triple xp and cash. Great way to level if you need to. (working to 30 myself). Its for a limited time, so dont put it off too long either.
