It seems that the GT6 updating errors are being caused by players not updating for longer periods of time. Those who keep up with updates seem to have less problems. The following instructions are being recommended to deal with updating errors.
PDI is looking to see if these instructions can be further simplified.
Although fairly complex, this worked every time.
* If you don't have any progress, then you can skip this step
Nice one Mastr. :Thumbs:
Would I be right in assuming you learnt this through correspondence?
A few things stand out to me:
"While connected to PSN ..."
Updates can be done without signing in, and I would have thought that it would be more reliable to update without being signed in to the PSN.
But perhaps it's just a wording thing that I'm reading wrong and they simply mean connected to the internet anyway.
"Allow the first 6 patches to download and install."
I've never worked out why there is always 1 less update file than the version number.
eg v1.14 has 13 update files.
So does 6 patches get you to v1.06 or v1.07?
Either way, it's an interesting place to nominate where to stop the patches for the first time.
For reference here's a list of the updates according to release notes so far :
v1.01 = 1.2GB
v1.02 = 1.2GB
v1.03 = 99MB
v1.04 = 214MB
v1.05 = 100MB
v1.06 = 295MB
v1.07 = 961MB
v1.08 = 1.4GB
v1.09 = 598MB
v1.10 = 2.1GB
v1.11 = 30MB
v1.12 = 484MB
v1.13 = 9.5MB
v1.14 = 548MB
"Scroll down to the Network Settings tab>Internet Connection and select DISABLE ... "
I was reading of this earlier.
The reasoning behind disconnecting and then later reconnecting from the internet sounds good, and considering it's such a quick and easy step in the scheme of things, definitely worth the few extra seconds each time.
Which of course leads into ...
"Highlight the GT6 game disc/game file and press the “Triangle” button and “Check for Updates”
I seemed this was a better system than doing the updates from in-game anyway.
But with the disconnecting and reconnecting from the internet for each patch, this option is clearly the best way to go.
It's a nice simple description and hopefully can help those having issues.
Will see if we can get this pinned as a sticky.
Yes, PDI ran into the updating problem everyone else found, last week at PSX, so they had the chance to figure it out at the show. They asked to have the instructions spread around while PDI figures out what to do about it now.
The one thing that was becoming obvious but I couldn't be sure about was anyone who kept up-to-date didn't have problems. This wasn't completely obvious when dealing with individuals here and there not knowing if they had let updates lapse or not.
So, for now, keep everything up-to-date.
because I really have something else to do staying in front of tv during hours, I've missed one update
as a result after step step update from 1 to 1.01 --- 1.09 I need to begin once again
This is a shame nothing done and it is not possible to download a general update because I do not play everyday with the game
GT6 really sucks
I would just like to add that I have not tried these instructions yet but the reason I am having trouble updating is not that I didnt keep up to date with the updates it was that my PS3 console stopped working and I had to buy a new one. All the updates from the start have to be loaded but after half an hour it always comes up with the error insalling message. I have not managed to even load the game yet. So 3 consoles and 3 GT6 discs later as advised by different people I am really frustrated. I dont know if your instructions will work yet as you state to read the disc but I cant as as soon as I insert the disc it wants to install the updates.
It sounds to me like the game may be auto-starting and immediately looking for updates.
You can switch off the auto-start function with a setting on the XMB.
XMB > Settings > System Settings > Disc Auto-Start.
Turn that function to 'Off' and that should allow you to put the GT6 disc in without it starting the game.
You should then be able to follow the instructions described in the first post of this thread.
It is important that you delete the failed update data from your previous attempts (as described in points 2 and 3 above) before moving forward.
XMB > Game > Game Data Utility > GT6 file (press 'triangle' - Delete)
I am really sorry to discover that neither this procedure worked with me.
It continues to fail to install the 1.10 patch.
Any additiona. suggestion?
Once you get up to 1.06, you have to take control.
Which console version do you have?
Yes. I followed all the instruction and from 1.06 on, I updated each patch step-by-step.
I have a 250gb PS3 with the last firmware available: 4.66.
Whent I get to download and install 1.10 it's ok, but when I boot the game and it starts the in-game installation, here it fails...
I did another test:
backup my consolle
format the hard disk
install Gran Turismo 6 on my "fresh" PS3---> it worked without any trick.
Now I am restoring back my PS3...
Can you help?
The 250Gb... so that is the original slim model?
That is the main one that, apparently, has the install problem, so the instructions above need to be followed carefully. I have asked PDI if there might be some sort of problem with your set-up, but I am not aware of any other, at this point, other than it being a 250Gb slim.
The instructions above have worked for everyone that PDI is aware of, so I can only think that something wrong is going on at your end. You MUST use the XBM for updating, not the in-game. I'll wait for PDI to reply.
Do you have an installed game save at this point?
By 1.09, have you played and created one yet?
Um, why are you launching the game?
This is unusual, so I am wondering if having a progress file at this point will help you install 1.10.
Wait until it does a save after booting, then go to the next stage.
Well. I didn't solve yet the problem
I will really thank you any additional support (I phoned Playstation support which told me I have to pay 115€ to get a repaired consolle....)
When you say:
"Boot GT6 and follow the in-game prompts until the main menu appears. (this step will create new save data which will later be deleted)"
I do it.
I downloaded and installed from XMB the patch 1.06.
Cancelled the 1.07 download
Put the consolle offline
Run the game.
I get an in-game installation process. When it finishes, I get prompted to enter my Name&surname, then I go in the first tutorial (a lap in a car).
Then I exit this race, go to main menu and chose "Option -> save".
Then I quit the game, put the consolle online and download the next patch from XMB.
I don't touch the save data keeping it where it is.
I do these steps until 1.10 downloaded from XMB and installed.
At this stage, when I run the game, the in-game installation of the 1.10 starts... and never complete :(
If those steps are all ok... well... why I can't play ?? :(
Thank you for your support!
