Update 2.12 information
« on: Apr 23, 2013, 09:11 am »

Looks like this update is PD's reaction to hacked/hybrid cars.

Back up your gamesave BEFORE downloading this update

After accepting and dowloading the patch, your hybrid cars will be removed from your gamesave file, in as much as any power modification is removed... the base car will still be there, but some (if not all) "hack modifications" will be removed.

I would recommend the following method:

1) Before anything, backup your GT5 gamesave.

2) Disconnect your internet connection from your PS3

3) Load up GT5

4) Manually delete/remove ALL your hybrid/hacked cars. Every single one.

5) Once you are sure there are none left at all, then exit game.

6) Reconnect PS3 to internet, load GT5 and accept the update.

This method is recommended because there is no way to tell if any reporting is sent back to PD after the patch removes any hybrid/hacked cars from your gamesave file.

Call it paranoia if you wish.

Did they change it so the hacking tool doesn't work anymore as well?

I think if you want to create more hybrids you can still do that, but you can only use them on game version 2.11 ... if you run 2.12 then the game will reset/remove the hybrids when it loads up.

So I did update my GT5 gamedata.

I followed Andy's paranoia in my UK account and everything seems to be fine, including the cheated tickets from Garage Editor.

Edge Camaro has been removed from the Asian account, but everything else seems to be fine, including golded events from Luca's tool.

I think we're okay with stuff like tickets, PD will really just be after any unusually modified cars that don't match what the game can normally achieve.

You know what really pisses me off about this update?  For years, Gameshark hacked every game available for the Playstation and PS2, but when an individual figures out how to hack a game on the PS3, they institute bans and make updates to undo it all.  Ridiculous.  I'm not updating.  I'll keep my hybrids and wait on GT6.
