I just wonder if consoles get those bugs as well, like with the Miami Park drift...

For some reason the patch gave me the 3 Dr Pepper events.


They WERENT there before it came out, the only mod i've been using for 2 weeks now is to unlock Z06, Exige S and MP4-12c in carlot, because i didn't like being stuck with worksed versions of the first two.

Hey, where can I get that mod?

BTW, before patch, there were 3 more "cards" after GT1 that were closed. You could see them turned to the side if you select GT1 card. I presume they represent the 3 upcoming DLCs. After the patch - they are gone.

Feels like we are about to be screwed again

Gotta love the wannabe overclockers who went crazy with the release of this patch. It does improve performance on low end systems, but doesn't address the high end systems issues at the moment. Crossfire and SLI are still having issues with the game and SMS are working with AMD and Nvidia to fix them. However this was too much for a few reactionaries to understand, who managed to insult Ian Bell and Griff and get themselves banned from NoGripRacing :D

Anyway it's looking interesting for Shift 2's future as there is a fair bit of content coming our way soon :)

Not happy it's pay for DLC, but until EA change that policy we wont't get much of a choice other than to not get it.

I still see those 'turned to the side' cards.


I never thought of them as a hint of DLC for PC. More likely that, along with everything else that hints at PC release of DLC is just a leftover from console version. They simply took a lot of data from console versions and ended up with some DLC traces here and there.

Actually, the devs over at NoGrip said they ported the PC version to the consoles.

That's something new. You know, im used to PC versions being ports.


Then wonder why they added those DLC traces.

I hope the Legends Pack and the Drag Racing come out soon. Along with a performance pack plus ATI and Nvidia pulling their fingers out and doing proper drivers.
