Good news!

I really think that launching the Logitech Profiler before the game starts was the trick. I got the idea recently from Project CARS. Unless I start Logitech Profiler, for some reason, there's a 99.9% chance the game will stall at a black screen before launch. Every time I launch Logitech Profiler first, pCARS will open normally.

 

And yes, that's also under W10 x64 (10586.318).

 

Steering feels noticeably better than before, actually. Shifting is still weird, where it just doesn't always shift (using paddles) when I tell it to. Could be the way the car / game is, though.

 

Also, the online mod in general is something that I want to see stick around forever. If something happens to the server or its operator, is there a backup plan?

Shifting is somewhat weird as well with a fanatec gt3rs wheel. Paddles don't respond all the time. I should try without patch eventually to see whether related or not.

 

I just know the server is run by mod's author on a dedicated plan. He promised to release server program if the hosting can't be maintained. Afaik, a single machine is required to act as a registry. PCs running tdu connect directly via p2p, then.

It doesn't always shift for me too. I don't recall this happening before the official servers shutdown, but maybe a bug with the new .dll's that conflicts with many controllers? I don't know if that 'miss-shifting' bug happens when playing on keyboard as well, but may be something to think of?

Hello everyone!! I'm Peter and really happy to have found this thread, a resurrection of good old TDU1!! The best driving game ever, in my experience!

 

I have already downloaded and use your version and it works fine offline.

 

I seem to have a very slow internet connection (mobile broadband ~5 Mbps) and whenever I select online play it crashes! Has anyone experienced similar problems?

Thank you for any response!

Hi,

 

that's not a bug.

You seem to have calibration issues with a gamepad or your mouse, moving the cursor outside of selected spot.

 

I had this with a defective pad which could not keep center position at left stick.

Hi , sorry for that dumb question , but i am now playing TDU2 and i feel like i wanna get back in time and play TDU1 like the old times . Now my question is , is it worth installing and playing again tdu1 , based on the number of players online , has the server an enough number of players to enjoy playing with , or should i just remain at the tdu2 ?

I think there are enough people playing at any given time to enjoy TDU1 like the old days. You may be connected to just a few people at a time, but it's something.

TDU2 ist just a piece of garbage against TDU if you ask me. :D

 

I updated to Windows 10 a year ago, and the only reason why i downgraded to Windows 7 again was TDU, because it wouldnt start with Windows 10. Now because i wanted to try Apex, i installed Windows 10 again, and for some strange reason TDU is working now. Yay. :nuts:

 

For any person having problems with it:

I'm using it with an Iso made with Alcohol 120%. Not sure if this is always working. But thank god for me it does.

 

There are so many good racing games out there, but TDU ist just a special one, i still love playing it, and it gets me some really, really good memories back again with the Crash test Drive Dummys-Club (CTDD). :cool:

I'm beginning to wonder if it works on updated (7/8-10) Windows but not a fresh install :hmmm:

Same thing here, migrated to W10 a week ago and still working flawlessly. I guess migrating keeps compatibility settings. There seems to be an issue with DPI font scaling, among other problems...

One thing for sure, using a NOCD to circumvent loss of support for Securom is not a good solution.

It also works via Alcohol 52%.

It does work on clean installs of Windows 10.

First off thanks to Speeder and the TDU revamp team for being totally awesome.

I was online the night the servers got killed and despite many attempts to replace my TDU addiction, I failed.

I've been missing this and now you have given it back to me so thanks again.

 

To all my old cruising buddies, Duke, Pogo, Col - time to polish the caterhams lads...;)

 

Now my only gripe is the G27 fix is missing from the host at the end of the link on the first page, I will admit to skipping the last 40 pages of this thread as I got fed up with reading comments from other people who failed to read the first post properly.I have spent the last few nights reading the first 140 pages though...

 

Has the G27 fix been removed or am I just missing a trick here.

Here's a ZIP of mine with the G27 files in it: Yandex.Disk

 

Now, I don't remember if it's the dinput DLL or the d3d9 DLL that contained the G27 fix, so I included both.

Only problem is compatibility with Windows 10 otherwise I'd be there with you. Some sort of VR (Oculus/Vive) mod/hack would be pretty awesome for TDU1 too but that's probably difficult if no-one on the team has one to test with.

G27 fix is also available in 2.00a patch (unofficial). If you don't want to mod your game you just may take the dinput.dll from it.

Cheers lads.

I'll have a play with that later. Mods... got a few already, even retained the winter mod on a separate executable... Had a drive last night and found about 35 people online, those I did bump into were all good connections so everything appears to be running better than when Atari hosted it - no surprises there then.

 

Hi Ryan, long time mate :)

Oddly enough I was showing one of your videos to one of the lads that works for me, seems he has the xbox version and was quite amazed to see what could be done on a PC :nods:

Hi guys. Great forum. My friend and i have a problem with Test Drive Unlimited Project Paradise (multiplayer mod). I have a original disc made into a iso file (because my CD/DVD drive is not working anymore). And my friend has original on disc too. Our problem is - We cant play the first race (I mean, rookie race, when you bought first house and car at the beginning of the game). Both of our copies freeze (camera rotating, we can go to menu but cant start the race). We can provide pictures of our copies with us, if its nessesery. Thanks guys, take care.

That happens when you're using a mis-applied no-DVD crack.
