TDU World is finally here! On the 10th anniversary of Test Drive Unlimited 2, we are releasing the first version of our multiplayer mod.

In the future, we will expand on the features of our mod. But for now, the gamemode most valuable to players - freeroam - is fully working after extensive testing by our beta tester team.

------

How to install (V1.01):

Important!: TDU World DOES NOT support unpacked or otherwise cracked or modified editions of Test Drive Unlimited 2! 

Unfortunately for now this does mean that players cannot use any mod packs or custom mods, however Unofficial Patch is supported and can be downloaded here

Step 1: Installing TDU2

  1. Perform a clean, standard install of Test Drive Unlimited 2 either from Steam or DVD/Digital Download
    You must use a completely clean download if you do not have the Steam or DVD Edition. Repacked/Cracked editions are NOT supported!

Step 2: Preparing TDU2

  1. Before you install TDU World, please run the game at least once to ensure that the game works and is registered correctly.
  2. Make sure you have a text file named "key" in the game directory. Without this, you will not be able to access TDU World!
    If the key.txt file does not exist in your directory, create the text file yourself and paste your CD key inside.
    Note: The CD Key is NOT your Steam Key! Steam will give you a separate CD Key. Right click the game in your Library, select Manage, then CD Keys.

Step 3: Installing TDU World

  1. Go to TDUWorld.com & register an account by clicking the orange "Sign Up" button and activating your account.
    You must use a legitimate E-mail address! Unactivated accounts are not allowed online.
  2. Once you've registered and activated your TDU World Account, click the Download button on this page to download TDU World.
  3. Run the installer.
  4. When the Installer asks you to select the folder, select the "Test Drive Unlimited 2"  folder your game is installed in.
  5. Optional: Tick the Shortcut box to put a cool TDU World Shortcut on your Desktop to easily play TDU World.
  6. The installer will then ask you if your game is up to date:
    If you know your game has DLC2 V034 installed, click "Yes".
    If your game is installed via the original DVD or Steam installation, press "No" and the installer will download the latest Official Patches for the game!
    (Note: Russian Versions of the game are currently not supported by TDU World's Updater, sorry!)
  7. The Installer will then ask you if you wish to proceed installing TDU World. Press "Yes" to proceed.
  8. Once the installer is finished, remove any existing save files in "Documents\Eden Games\Test Drive Unlimited 2"
  9. Open the game and register a new account using your TDU World credentials.
    (Nickname = Profile Name, TDU World Account = TDU World Username, Password = TDU World Account Password)
  10. Congratulations, you can now play online! Have fun!

anyways, so i have a problem xD As you said to another post theres an installer bug where tdu world launcher is not downloaded to run it. I didnt understand much with your explaination to delete directories manually. What do I do? 🙂

Response from the author:

This issue has been fixed with the newer installer. It now installs the launcher as UpLauncher.exe

There's however another bug now: installer creates a shortcut to TDU World Launcher.exe, but that file doesn't exist anymore, since the launcher installs as UpLauncher.exe. So if you want to use the shortcut, you need to redirect it or make a new shortcut

Y'all have done a phenomenal work!!! One thing though:

 I'm trying to register for my TDU world account, but I don't receive the activation email. I'm trying to get it to resend numerous times now but still nothing. Should I just keep waiting? 

My bad if this is not the place to ask questions

Response from the author:

Hi psp,

We have heard several people are having this issue. It seems that it does not send the email to some email domains. If it is possible for you, can you use a different email address and see if that works?

We will resolve this issue ASAP.

I installed it but it doesn't install the TDU World Launcher.exe (?)

Edit: Since i can't answer to the response somehow, i edit my post. I deleted the "Select TDU2 directory" while installing, but i don't have the TDU World Launcher.exe. I repeated that already 3 times.

Edit2: I had to rename the uplauncher.exe into tdu world launcher.exe. Game starts so far. I will see how it works.

Edit3: Looks like it works now.

Response from the author:

There's currently a bug in the installer: when selecting a directory, the "Select TDU2 directory" prompt will stay in the directory field. Remove this manually.

Then it will install in the TDU2 directory correctly.

Thank you for making this game back to life!

Currently having an issue to launch the game: after following all the steps, when clicking on "Play" in the launcher, the screens flickers then back to desktop. Any idea about how to fix this?

Response from the author:

Hi, this is a widely known issue. Some people got around this by fully reinstalling their game and TDU World. This might work for you too!

so i realize that this mod wont work for non steam version (cracked) and they made it that way on purpose citing that its for "piracy" concern.

here is my issue with that

they say on there website "TDU World allows users to play as long as they can obtain a legitimate CD Key. TDU World does not support piracy, therefore any "Cracked" releases of the game or otherwise counterfeit editions are not supported and NO support will be provided!"

the problem with this is

1 all the keys you can find online is plus 100$ and the game has been delisted EVERYWHERE.

2 the actual cd roms you can buy for US region is also pushing 100$ around 70+

3 the cd rom versions of the game didnt come with steam. if theres a version out there plus show me cause i want to be wrong

all of this because of piracy.

i also dont condone piracy but to an extent. if a game is readily available brand new or is still be supported ie patches then yeah dont freaking pirate. but if a game is delisted and/or nowhere to be bought or the legitamate way is the burn a hole in your pocket. its free realestate

there claim is to essentially trying to keep this game alive but by not allowing users to play because they dont have it on steam. they are inadvertently keeping the game dead.

they could have just easily just say they don't support piracy and still allowed their mod to work without steam.

this is truly frustrating

I had to fight Windows 10 to the death to allow this through its built in POS antivirus, but alas, it works, and I can finally play TDU2 online again.  It's been 8 years...
