Cheat originally made by HugoStanced, ported to versions other than NTSC-U 1.0 and PAL by me.

A 16:9 cheat that does not cut off the objects on screen edges. When using this cheat, a 16:9 Widescreen Hack should be disabled.

60 FPS

Last update: December 1, 2020

Cheat originally made by asasega. I ported it to more game versions and expanded it with more features.

An improved 60 FPS cheat. I expanded it to re-enable tire smoke effects, originally disabled for performance reasons when running the game in Hi-Fi mode (that mode is not present in GT2, but it’s a leftover from GT1).

Metric units code

Last update: October 4, 2020

A code changing measurement units in the NTSC-U version of the game from imperial to metric.

Currently converted units:

  • Speed (mph -> km/h)
  • Weight (lb -> kg)
  • Distance (ft -> m)
  • Torque (lb/ft -> kg/m)

To do:

  • Spring rate (lb/in -> kg/mm)

PAL version of the cheat fixes a “Launch speed at X mph” text, which was wrongly labeled as showing miles per hour, but showed kilometers per hour.
