GT5 PS3 Patch Update v1.03 Arrives with Mechanical Damage
Today another Gran Turismo 5 PS3 update has arrived, with the v1.03 patch weighing in at 149MB in size.
According to GTPlanet.net (linked above), the update includes an option for mechanical damage added to the settings for online races.
To quote: As can be seen in the online “My Lounge” options for an online race, a new “Mechanical Damage” setting is available for the event with three settings, as described by the scrolling information bar on the bottom of the screen:
- None – No mechanical damage.
- Light – Mechanical parts can be damaged, but will “automatically be repaired after a short time has passed.”
- Heavy – Mechanical damage will be more severe, and can only be repaired by making a pit stop. Damaged parts will be indicated with on-screen icons.
I just downloaded it and can confirm it does add mechanical damage to online races.

This is news, but it would need to be a lot longer than a sentence for us to move it to the main page as an article. I will try to add to it and then promote it shortly.
Update: I lengthened it up some and moved it to the main page now- Thanks and +Rep inginear!

So yep, we still update it as it's a Sticky thread here, and as long as you use the format in the thread it should be longer than the minimum character requirement.
That would be here:
Thanks boss. I will try now..
Does this mean we can play GT5 on FW 3.41 ?? O_o
