About This File

TDUF package is a set of tools and libraries, which is able to:

  • Check Bnk1.map contents and update it with new files in Euro/Bnk folder.
  • Extract the whole TDU Database to JSON files (a human-readable format, ready to be processed by many tools and languages, including Javascript).
  • Rewrite the whole TDU Database from modified JSON files
  • Check and repair Database for integrity errors
  • Help to understand file formats and read/write data from/to them
  • Provide a Database Editor user interface, which wide range of features (not limited to TDUMT/TDUPE ones)
  • and more to come!

See zipped-in README.html file for details.

Requirements and notes:

  • From 2.0.0 version, you will have to get TDUF package which will suit your needs :
    • if only using command line tools, head to  *core* edition
    • if only using DatabaseEditor, head to *databaseEditor* edition
    • if you don't care and wanna get all features, head to *full* (=without mention in file name) one.
  • Java 8 Runtime Environment: Java SE Runtime Environment 8 - Downloads - or embedded JRE (links in README.html file)
  • If using  TDUF 1.12.0 with Java 9 or 10, a tweak is necessary to make TDUF work properly: extract attached hotfix (
    TDUF-1.12.0-HOTFIX-JAVA-9-10.zip) to tduf/tools/cli directory (replace existing files)
  • If using TDUF 1.12 with 32bit version of Windows, extract attached hotfix (
    DatabaseEditor-1.12.0-HOTFIX-32bit.zip) to tduf/tools/cli directory (replace existing files)
  • TDUF 1.13.0 won't support 32bit Windows editions

2.0.0 updates

What's New in Version 2.0.0

* (general) Splash screen while loading database, due to increased time required (additional material file now has to be loaded)
* (general) Settings: locales list: enhanced item display

User Feedback


Is it possible to edit the race files ( the ones with .ige ) ?

Response from the author:

Hi, not possible with current version of TDUF. To add support, file format has to be reversed and a -map structure file to be created. After this, read and edit will be possible with file tools from TDUF CLI.

Thanks for the updated tool.

but i got a problem with the Theme (i read the logs it said "Editor theme not found, using default colors" and car color Material i.e FordGT_05 not in Main Material too...



Response from the author:


Check the used theme in the tduf.properties file (user directory, .TDUF) then the theme file should exist within the same directory.

Concerning materials, I'd need to check but not all materials do exist in the main colors file. Sadly it's not possible to add a new material for now.

Hola, ¿Cómo cambiar esto un sí? 


Response from the author:

Thanks for feedback, BNK files must exist in given locations to make Y flag appear.

Get files from a Shelby GT350 mod (interior, exterior, audio), rename then to match and copy to directories. Use >> arrow button to open File Explorer to those dirs.
