There was a report of the same trouble as before. However, no solution has been found. I am continuing the investigation.
About tdu2vpe, ver3.5.1.8 is the latest. And, the size of db_data.dec should be 1192 KB. The unpack method may be different. Please try unpacking again using "Xarlith: TDU 2 Unpacker GUI [v1.1]"  : https://turboduck.net/topic/31583-xarlith-tdu2-unpacker-gui-v11-japan-language-support/

Regarding "no mapping for the unicode" error:

It is a measure that can not be expected so much, please try the following.
Is the folder name with tdu2vpe and the folder name with tdu2 file after unpacking made up of alphabets only? If not, it may be improved if it is a folder name consisting only of AZ characters such as "TEST".

Can anyone identify this error message?

"Access violation at adress 00856FB4 in module 'TDU2VPE.exe'. Read of address 00C46030."

I get this error when i tried to load the data

Unfortunately, this kind of error is often not well understood.
Is the file size of db_data.cpr 1192 kB? There have been cases where similar errors occurred because files with different file sizes were used.

Try unpacking again using the TDU2 Unpacker GUI [v1.1]

TDU2 VehiclePropertyEditor: Ver3.5.1.8 released.


I reverted public version to ver

Ver3.5.1.9 released yesterday canceled because it turned out that I made a bug in "export all items to CSV" function.


Changes - ver3.5.1.8

Fixed: An error that "db_data.dec file is missing" occured.

FIxed: Brand name change function was not working properly.


Changes histry

  Reveal hidden contents


Changes - ver3.5.1.7

Fixed: Bug that minus (-) value can not be entered.


Changes - ver3.5.1.6

Fixed: Bugs where editing on tire, rim, brand name was not functioning properly.

Fix: When loading specific vehicle data, there was a bug in which an error "No Unicode mapping ..." was displayed.


Changes - ver3.5.1.2

Fix: The error dialog box "Not enough space" error is no longer displayed.

- If an "insufficient space" error occurs, a log file is generated indicating the point at which the error occurred.


If an "insufficient space" error occurs, try re-importing by referring to the log, shortening the character string length, etc. If it is the same length or shorter than the length of the original string, you can reliably import it.

Also, the map of the space for the string is refreshed each time vpe is started. If an error occurs, restarting vpe and re-importing may fix the error.


Changes - ver3.5.1.1Fixed: Suppressed unnecessary "Not enough spaces.." error.


Note: There are the following problems in this version.

If you import csv generated when using different generations of db_data.cpr, "Not enough spaces.." errors are more likely to occur.

For example, when importing csv generated in up04 when running "v34b16 system", "Not enough spaces" error occurs.

If "Not enough spaces" error occurs, please stop the process of tdu2vpe by Task Manager. (Although you can quit tdu2vpe by clicking the OK button several hundred times.)


Changes - ver3.5.1.0

New: The following items can be exported to CSV file. In addition, it is now possible to read and reflect those edited CSV files.

Changes - ver3.5.0.7

The following was added:

- Chart for speed vs rpm per gear ratio.

- Display for the estimated maximum speed after changing the gear ratio and the predicted value of 0 - 100km / h time.

Fixed: Some minor bugs.

Note: The above values are rather rough values, and in reality there may be big differences. Please be aware.


Changes - ver3.5.0.5Fixed: The phenomenon that the display of model name garbled. Notation like "R34 GT - R Nür" has become possible.

Special thanks:

As for color change, information from mitkop81 has become very helpful.


Changes - ver3.5.0.3

Others: "IniLdr.exe" which was included in the old version is no longer needed.


Changes - ver3.3.0.5

Fixed: The bug by which a vehicle name and data are overwritten without intending.

.When you work such as the following, there was a bug in which the vehicle name and the data is overwritten.

.Load data "Audi TTRS Roadstar" - Change vehicle list to "Audi S3" - Click the "Apply" button --- Then S3 is overwritten by TTRS.

About changing the tire size;

  Reveal hidden contents

The combination of a large number of tire and the rim is built into the game. If you want to change the tire size, it is more easy to use by selecting the appropriate combination from among its combination.

You can also change the tire size by changing yourself, such as rim size in combination. The diameter of the tire I can be calculated by the following formula.


(Tire Width)*(Tire profile)*2 + (Rim diameter) Here, the "Tire profile" is tire aspect ratio.

There are unused rim, the vehicle ID to which they are assigned is indicated by negative numbers. Since they are not in use, it seems to affect risk is not in the other vehicle. So, I think that they are suitable for use in MOD.

If the database version is UP0.4 or later, it should not be version dependent. However, I did not check in detail.

The "db_data.cpr" file must also be a v034 file. The file version of "db_data.cpr" can be distinguished by the file size. For v034, the size should be 1192kb.

Please wait a while,,,, I'll write later.

-- edit --

At the moment, you can only select the combinations described in the DB. 
If you want to apply a rim mod, you will need to replace that particular combination of rims.

How to change the rim size:
1. Open the "Tires/Rims" tab,
2. Select the code for your desired rim size in the "Tire/Rim Combination Code List".(by double clicking).

If the combination containing the rim of the desired size is not in the list, you can add it by.
- Click the Open DB Viewer button to open TireDBViewer and
- Find suitable set and double-click to select it.
The code set by the above operation will be added to the "Tire/Rim Combination Code List".

On TireDBViewer, if the vehicle ID number is set to negative, it meaned will be not used for any vehicle yet. So, selecting a set of them will avoid any impact on other vehicles.

Hey there, I've been messing around with this tool for about an hour and nothing is working, I've tried unpacking the game (it's in a folder), reading through the pages of replies on here on people who have had a similar issue and everything I've tried isn't working. Every value I change does not show up in the game, the cars just stay standard. I've tried editing a variety of cars but yeah, just nothing. Help would be appreciated.

Hi binbow, first of all, thanks for this great tool.

I'm working on adding some cars to unused car slots. First car I added was a Bentley Continental GT. As you might know, this car brand is not in the stock game. I was wondering, how do I add an extra car brand to the game? I know it is possible, since both the Unofficial Patch and Autopack add new brands to the game.

I assume its not as easy as in TDU1. How does it work?

As for the brand name, as with any other vehicle, you can only replace the existing name.
You can replace a brand name by following the steps below.


1. Choose a brand name to replace
2. Enter new brand name
3. Click "Write to the data buffer" button
 With the above operation, 
4. the new brand name added earlier in the brand selector will be listed, so select it. 

Then click the "Apply" button to add the new brand to the game.

Howdy love the tool,

Is there anyway to edit a car to be able to sell it in the game? Or a way to access a garage to delete it? After installing some AutoPacks a few of my cars got turned into Traffic cars and was wondering if I'd be able to edit their properties to allow them to show up either when you are buying a car and don't have space or money.
