It would appear installing the game is more exciting than the game itself.

Installing it all at once takes a while. You don't have to do it all at once, but I had other stuff to do, so I figured I would get it over with.

Have only done two races so far, but it is amazing. Feels perfect!

But the drastic difference between the good and the bad quality tracks and cars is not something I can ignore easily. For example a night race with a Standard car is really strange, the front lights are on but they have no effect. But on the competition's cars they work...
Driving with banana feels better than that. But how can you compare it to GTR EVO, RACE 07, rFactor?

Try hitting L1. There is a button that turns the lights on I think.

Is it me or are there no options for the G25? I played it last night, but it won't use the shifter in the discreet gear mode. I can use the ones on the steering wheel or if I make the shifter up/down only but the individual gear mode on the shifter doesn't work. Am I missing something?

I think I will hold off playing it anymore till Monday when I get the wheelstand pro I ordered. It kind of sucks with the G25 on your lap.

But the G25 works just fine with the default profile. Including the H-Shifter.
Hmm...The H-Shifter didn't work for me for some reason, I had to use the paddle shifters or change the stick to the up/down mode. I'll have to give it a try again later.

For you and thos playing with a wheel.

I turn on a controller and hold the home button and switch the controller to #1. both the wheel and controller will be #1 so i can use the controller to navagate the menu and the wheel to drive.

slaWter, you're probably on to it by now, but have you noticed the default brake balance is 5:5? :s

I'm still playing with a controller for now which is a big pain, but I'm going to play around with brake bias tonight and set it to more normal levels and see how that changes things.

I'm liking the game a lot, but have to agree on the varying quality. Standard cars really do look quite bad most of the time... I didn't think I would have a problem driving them, but I now find myself avoiding them. Still, when in "bumper" view they are still fine since you see nothing... it's just the start of the race/replays and AI cars that can sometimes look bad enough to ruin the experience.

Tracks are the same. Trial mountain is pretty bland and pretty much just above PS2 level IMO. OTOH other GT series tracks like deep forest and SSR5/clubman are somewhat acceptable. the Nur' is amazing, as are most of the city tracks but then again I expected that.

Anyhow, good game with some glaring flaws and ugly sides. Still very enjoyable.

My two major gripes so far:
- Shadows look worse than Prologue (was this to get 16 cars on the track? They're horrible, and the prologue shadows were bad to start with) Luckily the replays look fine.
- No Brake upgrades? Seriously?

Theres mention lots of new content and fixes coming in the upcoming weeks. And people are thinking the shadows are a bug and will be part of the fixes.

I'm having too much fun tuning sub 1000kg cars to 200-300hp to save up for any sort of car like that yet, hehe.

I take back what I said about the standards. While they look ugly, I'm still happy that they're there. The Hommell Belinette RS coupe that I won is pure fun on wheels. Never tried the car in GT4...
