  1. Probably the Mclaren one doesn't count for the trophy but if anyone with two of that three cars (that actually count) bought could test with this one (:
  2. Interesting. But i found a way to use the mouse on the ghost control program. Basically, every 30 seconds, this happens: CLICK ON OPTIONS (pauses the game) ARROW DOWN ARROW DOWN ENTER (the car is reset) ESC ESC (if the click on options happens in between the races) ENTER ENTER . . . worked every time
  3. Does that script uses the controller?
  4. Hi. I'm using this guide to grind the Around the Globe trophy: https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/topic/317289-around-the-globe-g-afk-method-no-rubberband-needed/ But everytime I let the game running overnight, the car always get stuck (sometimes one hour before I wake up, sometime 30 minutes after I go to sleep). So I had an idea: on the 30 second recording using Ghost Control, instead of only pressing enter, i press options, down arrow, down arrow, enter, so each 30 seconds the game pauses and reset the vehicle. But the problem is, there is no keyboard button for the Options button. I know there are some programs that can allow playing on remote play using the keyboard like reWASD, but I couldn't make it work. So the question is, is there a way to allow playing on remote play with the keyboard that actually works?
  5. I don't know if this is still open but i'm gonna go with 598,2
  6. It's short but quite fun. I liked when they introduced combat but it was only at the end. Overall, it was decent. 7,0
  7. When I finished the game, I didn't know if the game was utter stupid, or I was. Knowing myself, I'd go with the latter . But I didn't understand many of the story and the other aspects of the game didn't compensate for it. 7,5 ____________________________________________________________________________ As a die-hard FF fan, I really liked this one, in every aspect possible. BUT, it's a 5-hour act of the PS1 game, transformed into a full game of 30-40 hours. It's, therefore, incomplete. 8,5
  8. I started the text yesterday but only finished it today. So here it goes: Almost ten years ago, on March 31st, 2011, I rented (for one day only) and played Gran Turismo 5 for the first time. I immediately fell in love with the game and vowed to myself to save some money to buy the game as soon as possible. That happened on August 5th, 2011 and I started to play the game for real. I didn't aim for the platinum back then because I knew of the insane grinding and the insane Vettel challenge, so I decided to play until I got bored of it. I played regularly until October, then I stopped. Returned in January 2012 then stopped, then returned in April for a little while then stopped playing for the final time (as I thought). In 2015, I was in need of money so I sold the game to my cousin and I was fine with the fact that I would never play the game again. In September 2020, I put some of my PS3 games on sale on the facebook marketplace, not that I was in desperate need of money, I just wanted some extra money in these pandemic times. So 2021 came, and on the first days of the year a guy contacted me on facebook looking for a trade: F1 2014 for Gran Turismo 5 XL. I immediately accepted and the next day the trade was made and Gran Turismo 5 was on my hands again. At first I only accepted the trade to have the game in my hands, just to add to my collection, I even bought the regular Gran Turismo 5 some weeks after. But then I decided to run the game again just to see if my save was intact and if there was some change made in the game. I waited for the 20+ updates, the 8GB installation, and then the game opened, with my save intact and the online disabled. When I stopped playing in 2012 I had: Level 32 A-Spec Level 24 B-Spec Between 250 and 300 cars bought A little over 100 b-spec events raced with my pilot Only the S-License golded Only a few special events golded Some extreme events and all endurance events yet to complete (in b-spec) When I started playing with my dusty DS3 with it's oily analogs, I thought: What if I tried to platinum the game this time? I haven't forgot the insane grinding or the insane vettel challenge difficulty, but at the time I wasn't a trophy hunter, now I am, so I decided to give it a shot. I planned this return to have three phases: Gold all the licenses and the special events (minus Vettel) and do the remaining extreme events in b-spec; Grind the 1000 cars trophy and the The Air of Experience trophy (500 races), while racing endurance events in A-Spec and B-Spec to reach Level 40; Do the Vettel Challenge (could do this along with phase 2) Started with the licenses, B, A, IC, IB and IA. Some were hard but nothing too hard to overcome with some video guides and persistence. Then I did the special events. The karting, rally, top gear, and the loeb challenge were quite easy, some I golded on the first try this time. The Nascar event required some tries but they were quite short so it wasn't frustrating. The AMG Academy was easier than I expected, of course I had trouble in some events but nothing too demanding. The Grand Tour, on the contrary, was way harder than I expected. Some events I golded back in 2011 but the tuscany race, tuscany rally and the eiger time trial were hell, especially the last one. But I managed to gold them all. The final stage of this phase 1 was to get the GT-R Official Record trophy, which I got in two tries (I could have tried this in 2012, oh well). When I golded all the licenses and all the special events (minus Vettel), it was January 23rd, so I planned the phase 2. I had 169 races with my pilot and 374 cars bought, so I did the following: Each day I raced 12 b-spec races with my pilot, it could be either the Sunday Cup ones, or a endurance to grind XP or other race at all. And each day I bought 21 cars, new, old, it didn't matter. I did this to have the two trophies 30 days later. There was some days I couldn't do this, but I wasn't in a hurry. For the XP grind, I did the following: Each two days I raced the 4-Hour Nurburgring event with the X2010 and whenever I had the time, I did the endurance B-Spec events, some to just complete, others to grind. To reach Level 32 to do the 4-Hour Nurburgring event, I did the grind in the Indy 500, and when I could do the Tsukuba 9-hour, I let the race went on while I sleep. When I reached level 39, I did the Le Mans 24h and when I reached level 40, I did the Nurburgring 24h event. I got the A-Spec trophy on February 12th and the B-Spec trophy on February 17th. At this time, there were a few races/cars to complete/buy so I went on Phase 3: The Vettel Events. And what everyone said about these events wasn't an understatement. Back in 2011 I had serious trouble getting bronze, so I knew gold would be hard if not impossible (and I didn't have a wheel). I did Monza first, because the secret was to master the shortcut in the 2nd chicane to have a chance to gold the event. But that didn't mean it was easy to gold, because I couldn't do the third chicane right, either because I went off track, or braked too much and the ghost overtake me. There were even times when I did everything right but went off track on the last turn. But I eventually got it. Only two remaining. On February 23rd I got the Air of Experience trophy and the 1000 cars trophy, making the last two Vettel events the only roadblock for the platinum. Next stop: Nurburgring. There isn't any tracker in the game to tell you how much times you tried some event, but in the Nurburgring case (or even Suzuka's, I switched events sometimes) I would guess over 700, including complete and incomplete tries. There was some turns I tackled perfectly on one try but tackled terribly on another try but on the times I actually completed the event, I could see some progress being made. There was some serious problems I had to fix, like the first two turns I rarely got it right, the hairpin where I rarely tackled on the right speed and exited it well, among others. I was making progress on the Nurburging as the days passed, but I hit a roadblock, to the point I couldn't get happy or animated with trying, because I wasn't making any progress after this. With Suzuka, it was even worse, I couldn't even complete the event below 2:15, and it looked like everything I was doing was in vain, on both events. As the days passed and the more tries I was making and zero progress being made, more and more I wanted to say: "Fuck it, I'll do the glitch". Speaking of the glitch... When i bought the regular version of the game, back in January, I was aware of the possibility to simply do the 1.10 glitch and get these Vettel events out the way. But I promised myself that I would only do if I was completely sure I couldn't do it on the legit way (I didn't have the money to buy a wheel so...), and this was the case with Nurburgring and Suzuka. I did all the procedures to revert the game back to 1.10, and I even tried to do the glitch to see if it was possible, and it was. But I did this last week, and I knew the 10-year anniversary was a few days away, so I decided to wait and do the glitch on March 31st, 2021, which is today. I did the glitch (even with the glitch was hard) and golded both events. So, in conclusion, I must say that I am very proud I got this platinum, and also very sorry because I couldn't do it all legit. Either way, with the massive grind and all the other hard events, the glitch is undeniably a stain on this platinum, but not a high one. The end. Here's the platinum image:
  9. I'm interested. Does PS3 games count too?

      Had the same idea for this year only big names. I was bored at work and had remote play available for a small hour on ps4. Fucked myself with 2 <10min plats 😭. I need therapy for my trophy addiction.

  11. Almost platinumed the game (will leave the platinum as my trophy #16000), in 231 hours. I guess it was... not bad? Well, comparing the proportion of the first and total runs in each of the four games: CS: 73:36 / 121:09 (39.67%) CS2: 90:29 / 156:36 (42.30%) CS3: 124:47 / 197:11 (37.05%) CS4: 180:10 / 231:29 (22.08%) The time spent on the second run of this game was only 22.08% of the total time, so not bad
