  1. For me this trophy didn't pop when it was supposed to either. I drove several races and qualifyings on oval tracks in Sport Mode, before I started grinding XP on Blue Moon with the KTM. After 827 km with the KTM alone, it still hadn't popped. I then went to Time Trial and drove the Tomahawk for 50 laps on Northern Isle Speedway and after I exited on lap 51 it popped... So somehow going to the Time Trail seemed to have unlocked it for me.
  2. In those cases it's pretty much clear that the trophy couldn't be earned legit I guess.
  3. To add to earlier posts: the game never asks from you to use manual, but like others said, it will be helpful to become faster. Mind you, I did practically everything with manual shifting (and a G27 steering wheel) except for rally events and the Vettel events. On the Vettel events I needed all my focus to drive, but the steering wheel will help you there.
  4. Nope. Fastest is, as far as I know, still the 4h of Nurburgring in Endurance. Over and over and over and over.
  5. Without looking at the profiles mentioned, what is a possibility is that someone had sent out all birds except the big red one. To get the trophy, all you'd have to do is sent out the last bird, it doesn't have to return. So if only your last bird was left (because you didn't unlock enough panels yet) you could earn the trophy by sending out the last bird, without being able to upload it to near.
  6. For anyone still struggling with score attack, two tips: 1. When the area starts up, pause the game. Now lean forward towards your tv screen till the point where the two diagonally floating text are out of sight and your VR screen is filled with the "PAUSED" text. Recentre the camera with the options button on the controller. You will be further away from the screen when you sit back in the normal position. When you resume and look to the side, you'll see that you're kinda at the back of the frame where you're "standing". Because of the positioning you've a smaller field of view to cover and can react better to incoming balls; 2. Just like with VR Luge, put your hands on the side of the VR-goggles. It came apparent to me that I had a lot of trouble to both keep my eyes on the incoming ball and steer the cursor with my head. By putting your hands on the side of the VR, you can keep your eyes on the incoming ball, while your hands do the steering, enabling you to rely on your hand-eye coordination instead of on your head alone. This way I managed to get my score up from a maximum of 4000 and a bit to 8300 in just three tries (5000, 1500 and 1800 points in the respective rounds). You might have to get a bit lucky with both your focus and the ball not accidentally going ape shit on with bouncing from the walls (which you with some luck can correct with a curve ball), but these two steps should help tremendously.
  7. The game doesn't keep count anywhere unfortunately :'( All the numbers you see people posting are just estimates... Edit: last endurance race almost done, after that one individual race in one of the extreme championships to go and I'm all done, but I'm saving this up for the #50 milestone Edit 2: finally finished it last friday 😍
  8. Yes, the biggest challenge is getting everything lined up in two consecutive laps. I did numerous attempts of which one of the laps was good enough combined with the lap from the previous or following attempt. And I know I can do everything in B-spec, but I needed to get to level 40 A-Spec anyway. Besides, I want to get some racing fun out of it, even if it can be a bit boring. After nearly 2.000 hours I want to get the last drop of pain out of it It's just an idea that when crossing that line after 24 hrs of actual racing, the accomplishment will feel just a bit bigger. Last night I decided I had to leave my race 6,5 hours in, because of the dark it wasn't doable with the Formula GT. Even not driving close to other cars. Now I started a new attempt with the purple LM Jag from '88.
  9. When I was working on Suzuka, once I got to 2:10.004... I'm not joking. At least I took the motivation from that. that I should be able to do it. Eventually made it wiith 2:09:667 or somethinng like that. Now I only need to finish the A-spec 24 hr race on the Ring, but I made the mistake to have the Formula GT as my car of choice to do it. Six hours in, and half off the track is pitch black at night and here I am, driving a car without headlights of it own...
  10. Good to know, thanks! Though when I tried to help lu2l0i1c2olu out with sending a bird in Angry Birds, I also wasn't able to upload it to Near, so it does really depend on what the trophy demands/at which point it will pop.
  11. Might have to with this: Any other way, I know location data was terminated earlier, but exchange of game goods is now also gone.
  12. Yeah it's a pity every trophy that was related to any functionality of Near is no longer attainable. A long and hard plat now out of reach for some
  13. As off July 31, 2017 the Near functionality is completely shut down, meaning that game goods cannot be exchanged anymore and as a consequence making this trophy unobtainable. https://support.us.playstation.com/articles/en_US/KC_Article/Termination-of-support-for-near-and-Live-from-PlayStation-applications-on-PlayStation-Vita

  15. @PhyrexianObscure Feel free (as a bird) to add me. I can help you out with all birds.
