How to install
You can find our Installation Guide on our Website


Important Notice

TDU World DOES NOT support unpacked/cracked/modified editions of Test Drive Unlimited 2!

We are aware there are no longer CD Keys for TDU2 at a reasonable price given the "abandonware" situation.
A clean copy of the original DVD installation can be found on Internet Archives here:


If you do not have a CD Key, or can't find a working one online, you can use 80_PA to "fake activate" TDU2.
The latest download can be found here, you need the 7Z release.

In order to use 80_PA, simply open TDU2, when asked for activation enter "1234-1234-1234-1234" then when prompted for invalid key, click offline activation.
Launch 80_PA.exe in the zip and paste the "Unlock Request Code" into 80_PA.
Click Generate Unlock Code. Copy/Paste the Unlock Code into the TDU Activation Window, then play as normal.

NO mods other than the ones provided via our Launcher are supported.
Let us know if you'd like to see a mod come to TDU World and we'll see about making it happen!

You must have a TDU World Account to play TDU World Online, the account must be activated with a valid e-mail address.

xD i wrote a report...

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.

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

Response from the author:


As of early 2023 we no longer require game key verification, as long as you activate per the guide in our release post, you can play online if you can't source a copy for yourself.

We hope this helps.
