New Gran Turismo 5 update goes live

Patch 2.04 improves online performance.

A new update has just gone live for PlayStation 3 racer Gran Turismo 5, developer Polyphony Digital has announced.

The patch addresses various bugs and glitches, as well as making some improvements to online performance.

Here's the full changelog, as posted on the game's official site:

  • Improved the performance of online races to provide a better racing experience. However, please note that using voice chat by 12 or more players can reduce screen refresh intervals.
  • Reduced wobbling of the screen when using the Chase view. (The Chase view is when the car is viewed from the rear during races and replays, selected by switching views using the SELECT button)
  • Electric cars (opponent cars and your cars in B-Spec) will now pit-in automatically to recharge the battery.
  • Reduced the amount of steering pull when using force feedback steering wheel controllers in banks of tracks such as the Special Stage Route X Oval.
  • The initial force feedback of Logitech steering wheel controllers when driving formula cars, has been made milder, and was adjusted to make it easier to drive in a straight line. Applicable controllers: Driving Force GT, G25 Racing Wheel, G27 Racing Wheel, GT Force Pro, GT Force, Driving Force, GT Force RX and Driving Force Wireless. Applicable cars: Red Bull X2011, Red Bull X2010, Ferrari F10, Ferrari F2007, Formula Gran Turismo
  • Fixed an issue where speedometer, position and/or best lap time is sometimes not displayed on the 2nd player side of the 2P Split Screen.
  • Fixed an issue where exhaust noise is heard even after changing from a combustion engine car to an electric car in the same online race.
  • Fixed an issue where if the game is started without signing in online and then saved, the cars and tracks included in the Racing Car Pack and Course Pack would become unusable.
  • Fixed an issue where electric cars would not recharge in the pit and become immobile.
  • Fixed an issue where when the oil of the Toyota Prius was changed in GT Auto, the motor ceased to function correctly.
  • Improved the force feedback of the Guillemot Thrustmaster T500 RS, where the 10 level adjustment of feedback force (Especially when using the X2010 and X2011) was not working effectively. Also improved a condition where it was difficult to drive in the intended path.
  • Improved the force feedback for the Logitech Driving Force™ GT, G25 Racing Wheel, G27 Racing Wheel and GT Force®Pro, where the 10 level adjustment of Feedback Force (Especially when using the X2010 and X2011) was not working effectively.
