Why don't we have an option to turn off the ghost car?

5 replies 5272 views Edited Jan 5, 2012

I've been trying to get all gold for the license tests and I like to drive in first person mode. Every time I have to retry a test the ghost car is there, and if it gets ahead of me it is sooo disctracting and annoying and throws me off my groove. Why can't we turn that off for all races, tests, and events? We should also be able to offset the ghost car if we want to learn from our mistakes as we drive.

Press up on the D-pad to disable the ghost. I usually drive with the ghost off.

Check the controller settings in the GT5 settings too. You can customize the controller controls to your liking. If you want to get fancy, you can play with headlights and horn too.

yep, my DFGT has both up and square mapped to ghost on/off.

sometimes it is really distracting especially when the ghost is about half a car ahead of you. and sometimes, seeing it behind you gets you excited and then you lose concentration.

other than those moments where it's distracting or disruptive, I always use the ghost.  It's really helpful to know where you are picking up or losing time during subsequent runs.
