It doesn't NEED an introduction. AAAAAARRRRGGGHH! OUR MEMORY CARD BLEW UP! Because of this, we're now trying to recover our former game status so updates might be held up for a while.. $ 1.1 - The chip rumours ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nobody in Clan[F34R] has a chipped PS2, so we cannot give guarantees here. But here is a summary of our take on what's been said about chips and this game. Rumour: GT3 WILL NOT WORK ON CHIPPED AMERICAN PS2s. Our opinion: LIKELY. Rumour: GT3 WILL NOT WORK ON CHIPPED JAPANESE PS2s. Our opinion: POSSIBLE. (We have recieved reports that GT3 does work on these units but we cannot guarantee this.) Rumour: GT3 WILL NOT WORK ON ORIGINAL SCPH-10000 JAPANESE UNITS. Our opinion: DISPROVEN. We have run GT3 on SCPH-10000s (with the original V1.00 DVD drivers loaded) with no difficulty whatsoever. Rumour: GT3 WILL MODIFY YOUR PS2'S FIRMWARE SO CHIPS WILL NO LONGER WORK ON *ANY* GAME/THE DVD BACKDOOR WILL NO LONGER WORK ON v1.00, ETC, ETC, ETC. Our opinion: VERY UNLIKELY. If the parts of the firmware concerned with protection could be modified in software, hackers could write software to disable the protection completely! It's very unlikely the console designers would have made that possible. $ 1.2 - What's in the box ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just because some people have asked. The Japanese version comes on one DVD, in a standard PS2 DVD case. A standard manual ships in the case. Included in the shrinkwrap with the DVD case - but not in the case itself - is the large Gran Turismo 3 Reference Guide, a 179-page reference for all the cars in the game. This manual has the same footprint as a DVD case. $ 2 - Basics ~~~~~~~~~~~~ $ 2.1 - Arcade Mode ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Arcade Mode is a standard, traditional racing game. You pick a track and car to race and try to beat all the computer cars. The tracks on Arcade Mode are divided into "areas". Selecting the "Goodies" mode from the Arcade mode menu will let you scroll up and down between the areas. Every time you win a race on a certain track at a certain difficulty level, you will get a light on the Goodies display for that track. Getting all the Easy lights opens the next Area. Getting all the Hard lights awards cars for use in Arcade Mode only. (Note: Completing Normal _doesn't_ give you any cars, although it looks like it does.) The cars awarded for each area are: A: Eunos Roadster (Class C), West Razo Silvia (Class S). B: TT (Class B), Delta Rally Car (Class R). C: RX-8 (Class A), Vertigo (Class S). D: Concept Z (Class A), Zonda (Class S). E: RGT (Class A), Tuscan Speed Six (Class A), Esperante GTR-1 (Class S), R390 GT1 LM (Class S) F: Viper GTSR Concept, Speed 12, GT-One, 787B (all Class S). On the difficulty level selection, you can access "Pro" difficulty by pressing L1+R1 at once. You do not win any cars for completing races at Pro level. $ 3 - Translations ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A note on Katakana ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Note that a LOT of the Japanese text in Gran Turismo 3 is actually English text rendered in Katakana script. Hence, if you can read Katakana you can understand the text without needing to know any actual Japanese language. Although you may have heard about the Japanese script having 3000 characters, that is Kanji. The Katakana script has relatively few symbols. You can find a table of the Katakana script for download on the net. Unlike English, every symbol in Katakana has a specific sound associated with it and it always sounds the same regardless of what symbols appear near it. Japanese does not have as many sounds as English, so the way in which English words are rendered in Katakana may seem bizarre, but it is easy to get used to. For example, "skyline" may be spelt "SUKAIRAIN". This looks bizarre but if you try pronouncing it with all vowels soft ("sUUkAH", not "sUHkEH") and no lazy vowels ("sukai" should sound like "sky", not "suuuukaaaaiiiii") it will actually sound like "skyline". Notice that when you say "skyline", you make the same sound twice for two different bits of spelling: the y of "sky" and the i of "line". Because of Japanese's rule that the same symbol always sounds the same, the word has to be spelt in Katakana with the symbols for "AI" in both occasions where this sound appears. The L has turned into an R because there is no L in Japanese. $ 3.1 - Options Menu ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The options menu is divided into 11 sections, represented by 11 icons at the top of the screen. The sections are as follows: 1 - ASPECT RATIO: Has only one setting: the game's aspect ratio. 2 - SOUND. Six on/off toggles. Top to bottom: Menu BGM, Menu sound effects, Race BGM, Race sound effects, Replay BGM, Replay sound effects. 3 - PLAYLIST. Choose which of the game's tracks to play or to suppress. If the icon next to a track is lit, the game will play the track. At the very bottom of the list of tracks is a toggle switch to determine the order in which the tracks are played: sequence (left hand option) or random (right hand option). 4 - ANALOGUE. Two toggles: analogue P1 and analogue P2. 5 - KEY SETUP. Configure the controls. The order of controls is as follows: Steering Accelerate Brake Reverse Handbrake Shift up Shift down Toggle view facing Toggle view location 6 - DRIVING. Transmission: Auto (left option) or Manual (right option), then two toggles: Antispin assist on/off, and Traction control on/off. 7 - 2 PLAYER. Top to bottom: Number of laps (1 to 99 (!)), Tyre damage on/off, Handicap distance, and Slow car boost (None / Weak / Strong). 8 - GHOST. On/off. 9 - STEERING 1. Top to bottom: Steering assist level (beginner / amateur / pro / simulation), Force feedback (on / off), GT-Force key setup, GT-Force calibrate. These last two refer to the GT-Force USB controller. [ Note: At the moment we can't translate the GT-Force Calibration menu because you cannot get to it if you don't have a GT-Force, and we can't afford one atm :) ] 10 - STEERING 2. Same as STEERING 1, but refers to the second player. 11 - DEFAULT. Press the button on this panel to reset all settings to their defaults. Anti-Spin and Traction Controller adjustments made in Options mode only affect your driving in Arcade Mode. In Gran Turismo mode, these car settings are adjusted in the Setting mode. However, the Transmission Type setting *DOES* affect both Arcade and GT Mode. $ 3.2 - "My Home" Menu ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The six options are: Garage Game Status Trade Run and Setting Save Game Credits In the Garage, press START to sort the list of cars in your Garage. You are given a menu of what you want to sort by: Order you got the cars Car name Manufacturer Colour (!) Value Odometer Power Drive type Aspiration type $ 3.3 - Car screens ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For a car in your garage, the leftmost Japanese option is "Select Car", and the rightmost is "Sell Car". For a car in the dealer, the option are "Spec" and "Buy Car". $ 3.4 - Parts ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The parts menu lists the following categories: Suspension and Brakes Engine Transmission Turbo Tyres Misc Inside each category, parts are listed in the order they appear left to right. Not all cars can accept all the parts. SUSPENSION AND BRAKES: Sports Suspension, Semi Racing Suspension, Full Customize Suspension, Racing Brakes, Brake Balance Controller. ENGINE: Sports Muffler and Air Cleaner, Semi Racing Muffler and Air Cleaner, Racing Muffler and Air Cleaner, NA Tune Stage 1, NA Tune Stage 2, NA Tune Stage 3, Port Polish, Engine Balance Tune, Soup up, Tuned ROM. TRANSMISSION: Sports Clutch, Twin Plate Clutch, Triple Plate Clutch, Sports Flywheel, Semi Racing Flywheel, Racing Flywheel, Carbon Propeller Shaft, Close Transmission, Superclose Transmission, Full Customize Transmission, 1 Way LSD, 1.5 Way LSD, 2 Way LSD, Full Customize LSD. TURBO: Turbo Stage 1, Turbo Stage 2, Turbo Stage 3, Turbo Stage 4, Sports Intercooler, Racing Intercooler. TYRES: Control Tyres, Sports Tyres, Racing Tyres, Dirt Tyres. If you choose Racing Tyres, you will then be asked to choose a type. Top to bottom: Super Hard, Hard, Medium Hard, Medium, Medium Soft, Soft, Super Soft. Control Tyres are similar to GT2's Simulation Tyres; they respond more like real tyres do (and thus make things a lot harder). MISC: Weight Reduction 1, Weight Reduction 2, Weight Reduction 3, AYC Controller, Variable Center Def. Parts will have the following effect on your car: SUSPENSION: The three types of suspension represent different levels of customizability. Buying better suspensions will allow you more choice in the Settings menu. RACING BRAKES: These brakes improve the stopping power of the car. They also wear out more slowly than normal; regular brakes may fade in the later stages of a long race. BRAKE BALANCE CONTROLLER: Allows you to modify the Brake Balance on the Settings screen. MUFFLER AND AIR CLEANER: Improved muffler and air cleaner sets will improve the flow of air to the engine. This enables it to burn fuel more efficiently and increases the power of your car. NA TUNE: General tuning to the engine to improve the power of the car. These tunings cannot be used with a turbo. Most cars will either not allow NA Tune to be purchased or not allow turboes to be purchased, but some will allow you to purchase both. If you purchase both, you must choose one or other to use on the parts screen of the settings menu. PORT POLISH: Improves airflow to the engine and reduces friction in the engine, improving your car's power. ENGINE BALANCE TUNE: Balances the timing with which the pistons in the engine fire, meaning that energy can be used more efficiently and increasing the car's power. SOUP UP: Increases the cylinder capacity of the car's engine, and provides more power. TUNED ROM: Many modern engines contain computerised monitoring systems. This new ROM will alter the behaviour of the monitoring system to optimise the engine's power. Having your car chipped will increase the effective power of the engine. CLUTCH: Controls the linkage between the engine and the wheels. Improving the clutch will transfer more torque to the wheels and reduce slippage when shifting up a gear. This will also improve acceleration. FLYWHEEL: The flywheel keeps the camshafts of the car moving. Improving your flywheel will improve your car's acceleration. CARBON PROPELLER SHAFT: Lighter propshaft. Slightly lightens the car and provides better acceleration. TRANSMISSION: More sophisticated transmission will allow you more control over your gearbox. Close or superclose transmissions move the gears closer, giving you greater acceleration at the cost of top speed. Full customize transmission will allow you to configure your own gear ratios on the settings menu. LSD: Limited Slip Differential. Ordinary differentials turn the wheels at different speeds, and so balance the torque between the sides of the car. This can cause a problem if one wheel is encountering more resistance than the other - the low torque needed on one wheel drags the balance point down, so the wheel that's got resistance doesn't get the torque it needs. Limited Slip Differential tries to overcome this by, under certain circumstances, trying to make both wheels move at the same speed. The effect of this is that the wheel with the most resistance gets the torque. TURBO: A turbo is a device which uses the energy of the exhaust being blown out of the engine to power a fan which drives more fresh air into the engine. This means that fuel is burnt more efficiently and the power of the engine is increased. However a turbo is only effective when the engine is running at high revs. INTERCOOLER: Decreases the temperature of air in the engine, increasing its power. A turbo will tend to heat up the air in the engine, and an intercooler will counteract that effect. TYRE HARDNESS: The softer a tyre is, the more friction it will have with the road. Thus the softer the tyre the better it will grip the road and the more cornering power you will have. However, lots of friction also generates lots of heat, so softer tyres also get hot (and damaged) faster, which will mean that in a long race you'll need to make a pit stop to change the tyres. Also, the friction doesn't just go away when you're on straights - and friction on straights means drag, means less speed. The effect of tyre types is as follows: Tyre Type Grip Power Laps ---------------------------------------- Normal 91% 5-10 Sports 94% 10-20 Super Hard 94% 20-40 Hard 96% 15-30 Medium Hard 98% 10-20 Medium 100% 7-14 Medium Soft 102% 5-10 Soft 107% 2-4 Super Soft 109% 1-2 The average wear expectancy of tyre types (in laps) is as follows: Tyre Type Green Yellow Red ------------------------------------------ Super Soft 0.5 2 3.5 Medium 2 4.5 11 Super Hard 4 14 40 WEIGHT REDUCTION: Removing unnecessary bits from a car and replacing heavier metal parts with lighter equivalents can reduce the weight of a car. This means that moving your car will take less power, and thus the same engine can move your car faster. AYC CONTROLLER: Active Yaw Control. This controls the rotation of the car on the axis parallel to the driveline. More rotation will shift the car's weight in the direction of the turn, improving cornering but reducing stability. If the car becomes too unstable, the wheels may spin, causing tyre wear and reducing traction. VARIABLE CENTERDEF: Allows you to control the center def on the settings menu. $ 3.5 - Settings ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After selecting Settings in GT Mode, the following menu appears: Parts Setting Load Setting Save Settings Exit Selecting Parts will show all parts you have available, divided into categories. The categories are shown at the top, from left to right: Shocks, Brakes, Engine Parts, Turbo, Gearbox, Tyres, Other. To change a part, move to it and press circle. The icons will correspond with the icons used to buy the parts as discussed below. The Setting menu is also divided into four categories, from left to right. Each of these contains controls, listed from top to bottom. Where the control is split in two, the left hand side is "Front" and the right hand side is "Rear". SUSPENSION: Spring Rate, Height, Damping, Damper Bound, Damper Rebound, Camber, Tow, Stabilizer. BRAKE: Brake Balance GEARS: Initial Torque, LSD Acceleration, LSD Deceleration, Gear Ratio. OTHER: Downforce, AYC Controller, Active Stability Management, TCS Control, Variable Center Def control. If "...." is listed for a setting, your car does not support changing that setting at present. Trying to change such a setting will result in an error beep. The effect of the settings is as follows: SPRING RATE: Affects the hardness of shocks on the appropriate part of the car. This affects how much force will be needed to make that section of the car move up or down. HEIGHT: Ride height of the car. The lower your ride height, the quicker you'll be able to go, but you also risk that the bottom of the car will hit the track on corners and you won't be able to take the corners properly. DAMPING: Speed at which the suspension and shocks move. The more you have, the slower the car balance changes. DAMPER BOUND, DAMPER REBOUND: These settings affect the rate at which the shock absorber dampers compress and decompress, respectively. A stiffer bound setting increases car handling because weight transfer is managed better. However, rough surfaces require a softer setting to keep the tires in contact with the ground properly, but too soft a setting will make the car nearly uncontrollable. A stiff rear rebound setting will reduce understeer while a soft rear will reduce oversteer. CAMBER: Vertical angle of the wheels with the road. Negative camber tilts the bottoms of the tyres inwards towards the car, positive tilts the other way. This affects traction on cornering, as against traction on straights. TOE: Lateral angle of the wheels with each other. With high toe-in, the fronts of the wheels will be closer than the backs of the wheels. Toe-in will reduce your cornering ability, whereas toe-out will improve it. However, toe-out will reduce your straightline power. Any toe at all will also make your tyres wear faster, because they'll be at an angle to the way the car's going and will be scrubbing on the track. STABILIZER: Ties right and left side suspension. Affects roll while cornering vs traction on uneven surfaces. BRAKE BALANCE: How much braking force is applied to the front and rear respectively. This lets you control how your car will drift on corners. INITIAL TORQUE: Unknown. LSD ACCELERATION, DECELERATION: Unknown. GEAR RATIO: The gear graph shows Speed along the X (horizontal) axis and revs along the Y (vertical) axis. Each line on the graph represents a gear. By adjusting the placement of the lines you can control how long the car will stay in each gear and how the power of the engine will be used. DOWNFORCE: How much force is applied downward on the front and back of the car. More downforce means less speed and more turning power. AYC CONTROL: Unknown. ACTIVE STABILITY MANAGEMENT: How strongly the anti-spin should take effect. Set to 0 to disable it entirely. TCS CONTROL: How strongly the traction control should be applied. Set to 0 to disable it entirely. VARIABLE CENTER DEF CONTROL: Controls the torque on 4WD cars. $ 4 - Listings ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ $ 4.1 - Cars ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Power Torque MASS W/P Drive Aspi Ps Rpm Kgm Rpm Kg Kg/Ps Acura CL 3.2 Type S 264

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You can enter races in any order, as long as you have the required license. Many races also have additional restrictions on the type of car you can enter. In a "single" type event, you can enter any of the races in the event in any order you wish. After the race, you are paid the prize money listed on the information screen for the event based on your finishing position. The prize money shown on the information screen applies to every race individually - there's no combination of results between the races. To get the prize car, you need to finish first in all the races. Once you have done this, you can never get another car from that event. Your opponents' cars are randomized. In a "champ" type event, you can also enter any of the races in the event individually. As before you will get the prize money appropriate to the event, and as before the prize money shown applies to every race individually. However, you can also choose "series race" to run all the races in the event in sequence. You still get prize money for each race individually, but in addition a running score is kept, and if you have the highest score at the end of the championship, you get the Championship Bonus as listed in the table below and you get the Prize Car. Some Championship Races have a choice of four Prize Cars, in which case one is selected randomly for you. You can re-enter the Championship as often as you like, and you will collect the Championship Bonus and a prize car every time you win. Note that in championships in which a prize car is randomly chosen, winning the same championship again does not guarantee you a different car. (But you do still get the car if one you already have is chosen - you just get another one!) Races run individually have no effect on your scoring in the series of races, and previous runs through the series of races have no effect on later ones. A "rally" type event is similar to a "single" event, except that you will run against a single car. Also unlike "single" events, all of the races in the event will be on the same track. The other car will be the same model in all the races in the event, and it is not randomized so it will also be the same model every time you do the event. However on later races in the event, the other car will get better spec'd and the driver will get better. Prizes for rallies follow the rules for "single" events: prize money after each race, plus the prize car for winning all the races. An "endurance" type event is also similar to a "single" event, except that there is only one race in each event and that one race will be extremely long. When you finally complete the race, you get your prize money, and your car if you win. Like "champ" races, a random choice of four cars is made, and also like "champ" races, you can replay the event to get another random car, assuming you don't mind spending that much time again :) Note that prize cars' stats may differ from the standard models in the Car List, and they may also come in colours that aren't available from the Car Dealer. In the table below, the following abbreviations are used for restrictions on race cars (other than license restrictions which always appear). If several letters appear in the restriction column, they represent a single restriction denoted by a double-letter abbreviation, not two restrictions. 1 - F1 cars only 8 - 80's sports cars: Savanna RX7 Infini III, Eunos Roadster, Nismo Skyline GT-R S-Tune(R32), Skyline GTS-t Type M(R32), Skyline GT-R V-spec II(R32), Silvia K's (S13 2000cc), Silvia K's (S13 1800cc), Fairlady Z Version S Twinturbo 2-seater, Fairlady Z Version R Twinturbo 2 by 2, Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex (A86 Type I), Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex S.S.

You will fail if the time runs out and you will also automatically fail if you collide with any obstacles or go off the track. You can attempt license challenges in any order, except for the very last test of each license which can't be attempted until all the others have been. To get a license, you need a bronze (at least) in every challenge. To get a bonus car from a license, you need a gold in every challenge. For license challenges, the examiners provide you with a car of *their* choice. If a license challenge stops with a long message, you ran out of time. If it stops with a four-character message, you went too far off the track. Note that if you want to quickly try the test again without needing to go back to the race preview screen, you can hit the start button as soon as the screen begins to darken and select "Try again" from the pause menu. You must complete licenses in the order B, A, iB, iA, S. The last license is the Rally license and can be taken at any time. B: 1 - Travel over 1000m as fast as possible and stop in the marked area at the end. Your car is a New Beetle 2.0. Gold: 0'35.100 Silver: 0'35.400 Bronze: 0'35.800 2 - Same as 1, but in a Viper GTS.
