...I really hope this next patch fixes the unadjustable TC once you're in the car online. Sometimes you quickly pick a car and jump in a race that's about to start only to find the car has TC enabled, and you can't turn it off.
You can turn it off in race, you need to configure the RA menu. Might be a bit fingers and thumbs if you're using a controller but it can be done.
Well, there is actually a glitch which is preventing you from adjusting TC in the RA menu. It seems kind of random.
BTW@ Jaisli... What's this duping glitch you mentioned? And the birthday thing.... any way you know to sneak around this without making a whole new account? Both of us had birthdays a couple of months before release.
No, with either method you'll need at least two accounts. I've read the PSN's end user agreement through. And I'm not an attorney but so long as you don't enter false details I can't find anything wrong with having multiple accounts.
1) Create a new account both on your PS3 and sign up for the PSN and put in the date of birth as today's date and put the year from whatever year car you want. (If you want a car from 1992 forward, you'll need to set it up as a sub account due to the age restrictions). OK, I know I just talked about not entering false information, but what can I say--sometimes people have slippery fingers and make mistakes.
2) Go into your new account and load the game for the first time. When when you enter GT Life, after you go through all the baloney about choosing your race suit, the game will 'reward' you with a gift car for your birthday. It will be a random car from the year of your birth.
3) If it's the car you want, simply 'gift' it to your main account. If it isn't, quit the game, delete the game save and load the game again. You'll start over from scratch and have another chance at the birthday gift. If you have a list of the cars, it's pretty easy to see what your chances are. If you're after cars from 1965 or 1967 there aren't many. going after cars from 1991, well, you might have to try many times. Before they put a restriction in to limit gifting to 1 car per 24hr period, this was a feeding freenzy and you could end up gifting yourself dozens of cars at a time from this method.
1) For this method you MUST have enough funds to buy the car you want. But at least you'll keep the funds. First, make a copy of your game save onto a USB thumbdrive or other removable media.
2) Load the game, go into the new or used car dealer and buy the car. If you want to be REALLY sneaky, then go and do an oil change, buy every set of tires you want, for used cars with high mileage, do an engine rebuild, add a turbo, suspension kit--the whole works.
3) Gift this car to your sub-account.
4) Quite the game, click on your USB drive and copy the game save back onto the PS3. It will put the game back in a state before you bought the car with all your funds en tact.
5) Go into your sub-account, load the game and then gift the car back to yourself.
(It's probably a good thing I'm not in banking)
* As a disclaimer, I just want to mention a few things. Glitching cars has really turned into a bit of a blood fued on GTPlanet. But I consider it nothing but a storm in a teacup. It's not really a cheat so much as it's an exploit in the game. And if you just want to drive the cars or use the cars and don't really want to grind away at the same events, over and over again to earn 'credits', I find nothing wrong with this. And since none of the cars are any different than cars you 'legitimately' bought or won, I really can't see how it's cheating. And since the cars I desired most in GT5, the Ferrari F330 P4, the Jaguar XJ13 and the Ford F40 Mark IV were all 20,000,000 credits, well, need I say more?
It's your game. Play it how you want to.
