GT5: Grind A-Spec PS3 Project for Teensy Development Boards

550°
178w ago - This PS3 project might help someone out there to use their Teensy development boards for at least something, I call it my GT5: Grind A-Spec babysitter.

I got the idea from a mate of mine who used a keypad with paper wedged in to keep the enter key depressed and a controller with rubber bands and presstic. I don't own a usb keuboard or keypad, so I asked some questions and did some reading and this is the result.

Keep in mind I know nothing about programming and I can not help with other development boards.. although the code is very simple, I had to ask for advice.

Thanks to Paul at PJRC for doing the code for me.

1. Download and install Arudino Software
2. Download and install Teensy Loader
3. Download and install Teensyduino installer
4. Run the Teensyduino installer (You must select the location where you extracted the Arduino Software)
5. Run the Arudino software and the Teensy loader
6. Plug in the Teensy development board into a USB slot
7. Copy the following code into the Arduino software

Sony Announces Remote Racing Hits Gran Turismo 5 for PS3

200°
179w ago - Today Sony's European Brand Manager Penrose Tackie has announced Remote Racing is hitting Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I am delighted to confirm that a new functionality update has been made to Gran Turismo 5, which in addition to a number of other enhancements, means that Gran Turismo is now playable from a web browser!

The main features of the update are as below:

1. Remote racing between friends to level up drivers

You can now set the AI drivers you created for B Spec in Gran Turismo 5 to be shared online, and you can host fully automated B Spec races (Remote races) that will grant rewards and experience.

You can either watch the live broadcast of the remote race, or save it to watch later. In B Spec mode the player is the director of a racing team, working to level up your very own AI Drivers.

The races are driven by AI Drivers against each other, and the player does not have to drive the car themselves.

This is a unique racing strategy simulation mode of Gran Turismo that allows you to enjoy races as you would in a live race broadcast on TV.

2. Supporting Remote Racing from the web browser

In "Remote Races" you can log in to the official "[Register or Login to view links]"...
