I'd like to to thank everyone who has been trough and looked at my setup, as 6000 views is about accurate as to how much effort I put in to making this setup.
As well, I'd like to thank 'Wojtekkkkkk' for becoming the 11th voter on my tune, as I need only 2 more to reach my goal of 50, currently positoining me at a 1:1 ratio of tunes to setups, something I could never break away from.
Thanks again to all and to 'Wojtekkkkkk' for the vote,

For some reason my games seems to a bit off from what you're saying. Following your specs and sometimes still getting beat, and there are some things like in the first race, you say we get the edge because your setup makes you need to pit after 10 laps instead of the 9 that the other racers need....but when I play, they're pitting after 11-13 laps. What's up with that? A Little Slow

Well I'm completely shocked by this. Where ever you are having problems, please list what is different between what you experianced and my notes, because I ran most of my tests at least 3 times, and all my data came up the same. This could be a PAL and NTSC difference, or the AI could act differently in your game. The only thing I may say that is costing you race victories is if you aren't using the redux setups, which are normally much faster on strategy or car speed than the originals.
If you have specific isssues with races, I'm totally happy to go back and look at any issues to improve the tune/strategy, because this is supposed to be a fool proof, 100% success B-spec guide, and if there are any variations I need to know.
Thank you for bringing this to my attentoin.

Send an email to Kerr, which would be sending an email to GtVault help
Disapointing to see you switch sides... but you will come away from the dark side when GT5 gets released... if ever.

Your previous comment is spot on, and I would like to thank you for acknowledging the time and effort that went into this, and also for being the 15th vote on this tune.
I don't think it'd make the knoweldge base, but it would be a very special day if it did.
Thank you again,

Another big thank you to "nissemand" for the 16th vote on the tune, the FGT is easily one of the top cars to tune, and as shown how effective good tuning can be. I cannot wait until I get the A-spec qualifying tunes underway, and potentially the full race tunes...
Thanks again "nissemand"

Thanks for the help in FGT B spec
Posted 03/04/2011 5:58 PM Post a reply Quote this post View Jcbikeboy's info
I just wanted to thank you for the awesome b spec guide for FGT championship it worked like a charm with only a few minor variances like when I expected the AI cars to pit on lap 112 at Seoul to give me the victory and they didn't,but otherwise completely spot-on. I ran my Polyphony F1 Car that started the Championship with 2000 miles on it and the times were at and sometimes a nit better than then ones you posted. I'm amazed at your suspension tweaks and especially the brake balance nuances. Great work and thanks again!

Thanks Jcbikeboy, I'm glad I could help. Sorry for the desperately slow reply, forgot I didn't have the gtVault emails forwarding to my new email.
I've had some wierd issues with Seuol so it isn't that suprising that other people had different results with the AI pit shedules and performance, I guess I need to go back and try again with that one.
Most likely you ended up with better results due to either haveing a better B-spec driver, or the fact that I did all these tunes with the same car, running the races multiple times meaning the car at the end of the championship was in far worse condition than the car that started it, but its good to hear that it almost worked without a hitch and was even better than expected.
Also a thank you to "captainMuffins" for what is now the 20th vote on my FGT setup, putting me equal 5th on the FGT vote list.
Thanks again everyone,
StigsTC
EDIT; My FGT has done 42550km.. wow.

Seoul Central Redux (Round 8)
Updated 10/25/2012 10:24 AM Post a reply Quote this post View StigsTibecuadorianco's info
After much resting on my laurels, I thought it was time to get on with fixing some of the bugs and issues with my earlier work with the FGT...

After concerns have been raised with the Seoul Central round of the FGT, and my own lack of satisfaction, I decided to skip it up the order for my FGT redux list. The main reason for my dissatisfaction is the poor programming of AI drivers and the total inability for b-spec to get within 4 seconds of the car in front. The field spaces out quickly and is unable to overtake, leaving last place 20 seconds behind at the first pit stops.
To combat this, I decided a reverse window strategy may play to my advantage, but with a 45 second lap, a reverse window runs the risk of being lapped if you get things wrong. Largely there was not much wrong with the original setup, however I've made a few tweaks to get a little more speed into the car.

Brakes 4/3

Suspension:
15.2/15.2
55/55
2/4
3/5
1.4/0.5
0/-1

Gears: Auto set 1, Final 3.650 7th: 1.830

AIDS 0/0/5

Downforce: 70/100

LSD: 30/30/15

Balance: +50

The new strategy is far more user involved, requiring you to be watching or at least present for every lap of the race, otherwise you run the risk of losing crucial battles which determine the success of the race. The pit strategy now runs (11, 28, 45, 62, 79 and 96)

B-spec can run speed 5 in all corners except the first corner in Sector 2, where he runs wide, then turns in early for the next corner, hitting the inside wall and then the outside wall, then gliding at a stunned mullet at 50km/h (30mph) costing you about 5 seconds. For that corner you need to turn B-spec to speed 3, then back up to whatever number written below. This can be done from the manager screen (press R1) and done at 3x speed, how quickly after the corner B-spec's speed setting is changed is not critical, however making sure B-spec doesn't crash is.

Below is the log of the race I took, with instructions as to what settings to use, and
although you may not be doing as well/better than me, stick to the strategy unless you have a better idea. Remember, a pit stop is worth between 25 and 27 seconds.

Lap 0 (Speed 5 with live overtaking) - speed 3 for right corner in T2
Lap 4 [3rd place] B-spec has the most success with slipstreaming and dives into turn 1.***
Lap 11 PIT IN, NO FUEL. (Speed 4) [6th +35 seconds]
Lap 16 AI pit*
Lap 17 [2nd place + 1.5]
Lap 19 [1st place] Great overtake down to turn one
Lap 28 PIT IN, Fill to 37. [-5 to 10 seconds on pit in]
Lap 29 (Speed 5 until you hit traffic and then use speed 3)**
After this stop you begin to catch the back of the pack and get held up by them
Lap 32 AI pit* [regain lead]
Lap 44 [-15 seconds]
Lap 45 PIT IN, Fill to 37. [Rejoin 3rd place +10 seconds]
Lap 48 AI pit* [regain lead]
Lap 54 [Lapped 4th place a lot of clear space ahead!]
Lap 62 PIT IN, Fill to 37. [Rejoin 1st -9.5]
Lap 64 AI pit*
Lap 69 [Lap 3rd place leaving another large gap in traffic]
Lap 79 PIT IN, Fill to 37. [prior to stop: -42 seconds (4 seconds behind 2nd)]
Lap 80 AI pit*
Lap 82 [Lap 2nd place (-1 lap to all)]
Lap 88 [Lap 6th for 2nd time]
Lap 96 PIT IN, Fill to 37. [Rejoin 1st - 40 seconds] AI also pit*.
Lap 101 [-1 lap all -2 laps 5th &6th]
Lap 103 [Lapped 4th place (only 2nd and 3rd +1 lap, others +2 laps)]
Lap 112 AI pit*
Lap 113 Finish

BEST LAP 45.262 (using speed 5)
MoV 1 lap and 40 seconds
Total time 1:31'39.316

*Not all the AI pit on the same lap. Normally the first 3 follow the strategy above if they haven't been held up, while the last 2 may or may not go a lap longer on their stop. Should a car go one lap longer on any stint, they will not pit on lap 112. Keep in mind, that if you are a lap ahead, the AI will not follow you into the pits, they will where their laps matches the laps mentioned above. Their tyres last 16 of their laps, not 16 of yours.

**Once you've ended your second stint and have begun filling the car with fuel, it is in its lightest phase for a stint, meaning it can get away with using speed setting 5 and last 17 laps (not forgetting speed 3 for the right hander in T2). Once you stop making progress it is wise to go to speed 3 to save the tyres, such that at the end of the stint, you may resume use of speed 5 setting, in order to catch up as close as possible to the car in front, maximising your speed advantage and minimising time lost in traffic.

***All overtaking is best done live, as once B-spec gets a chance he may not get another. If it happens to be down the front straight, don't tell B-spec to overtake early on, get him to follow the other car to get a good slipstream, then tell him to pull out later for best chances of winning the dual to turn one. Best done on speed 5 until braking zone, where if B-spec is ahead or up the inside change to setting 4 to prevent running wide and losing any other possible chances. Otherwise use your gut and your speed controls.

This is rather longwinded and complicated, however I've had enough of the poor results from this race and I decided to change that. Alternatively just qualify on pole position and let a programming glitch help you for once. (I'm working on a qualifying/strategy now)

Hopefully this removes Seoul from the list of issues with my FGT B-spec schedule,
StigsTC
In case you were wondering, yeah it is 1000 words.

EDIT: I went back and tried to tweak it to make the car faster, by reducing the downforce to 67/90, and changing the LSD to 25/25/15. Car was still able to win but was capable of 18 laps when left on speed 4 only.

A quick thanks to "Phoenix_2K12" for vote #21, making it the 5th highest voted FGT setup on GtVault! More A-spec work to be done on this setup, however I'm currently working on the GtVault challenge (GT4) and beating B-spec in GT5, and hoping to learn something new about the AI that I can exploit.
