Few Gran Turismo 5 questions

22 replies 475 views Edited Mar 1, 2013
  1. Is there a Gran Turismo 5 forum?
  2. How do I turn on/off my windshield wipers?
  3. How do I turn on/off my headlights?
  4. On B-Spec what is the best way to rank up my driver?
  5. If someone else uses my drive and win or lose will that show up on my drivers record?

  2. How do I turn on/off my windshield wipers? Check your button assignments in Options.
  3. How do I turn on/off my headlights? See answer #2.
  4. On B-Spec what is the best way to rank up my driver? Just keep using them. That's about it. Remote races will rank them up, but won't increase their experience.
  5. If someone else uses my driver and win or lose will that show up on my drivers record? Yes.

 


 Edit: clarification on #4.

Race how you expect to be raced.

I believe the wiper animation is automatic - in other words, they can't be turned on/off...they simply turn on when it rains and turn off when it doesn't...I could be wrong about this though.

Number 4:

 

you know how thiere is a Pace Down, Maintain Pace, Pace up and Over take.  Didn't know if you did a good job being a coaching it would help you move up faster

 

Also to me it makes sense that if you force your driver to use up all his/her strength or Mental Stength (or as much as possable) it would make your driver stronger faster.

 

Thanks for the help.  I have one driver with almost 100 wins and no loses and I have it set so other people can use him so that might chage fast now that I have the facts.  :smileywink:

I keep turning them on and not knowing how I'm doing it.  They will be off one race then I do the same race in the sun an everything and they will be on.  My PS3 controller is old and it does funny things to me every now and then.

I'm not sure if it makes them rank up faster, but it does help them get better if you coach them properly. (They will NEVER be as good as you think they should be.)

 Also to me it makes sense that if you force your driver to use up all his/her strength or Mental Stength (or as much as possable) it would make your driver stronger faster. I don't know i that helps or hurts. I've never really tested it either way.

Glad I could help. :smileywink:

 I think you're right about the wipers Rojovo.

Are you guys sure there's no default button for wipers?   I know you can map them to a button.  On my G25 I've got them mapped to a button so I can turn them on or off.    In Options there are button mapping options for controllers/wheels.

I'm going to answer my own question and say yes you can turn your wipers on and off with the Right joystick.  Just push down to turn them on and again to turn off.

Yes, you answered your own question correctly. LOL :smileyvery-happy:

There is also "Flashing", "Toggle High/Low Beam" & "Flash and toggle High/Low Beam" listed in the button assignment options. :smileywink:
