DS4Windows - Jays2Kings Build (Version 1.4.52) 

I believe this was by the original maintainer, before the project got forked.

Also there is a quirk to it. Before closing the program, I always have an app running called USB Safely Remove. I use that to do a safe removal of the (emulated) Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller before closing DS4Windows.

Because if the x360 emulated driver doesn't automatically remove itself after closing DS4Windows, then it breaks and you can't use it anymore until you do a hard reboot. This screws the OS to the point you can't even shut down via Windows, so you'll have to manually hold the power button to power off.

It sounds messed up but its the best solution I've found for my system atm. Anyway its almost always a reliable process, so I've been sticking with it.. (and it has good rumble and touchpad mouse support). Maybe x360ce works too, but iirc I couldn't get it working right.

I just can't get it working for some reason, but then I realized I have Logitech Rumble Gamepad F510 sitting on the table collecting dust, decided to try my F510 and put this controller into Xinput mode and surprisingly it fixed my issues.

Hello, I have concerns regarding standard radio stations in tdu files, if I want to edit the songs in my choosing how many songs are limit to one station?

I am talking about the standard radio stations that are found in the tdu files, not the my documents, profile and custom radio ones since I heard its 32, although I can only play 30 songs per custom station.

Not the first one to notice that. 

 

Again, that problem is with the car file, it happens because who created the car did not set the passenger position. There is nothing i can do about it, as i would need to HEX unlock the car file, which is seen as mod theft by the community.  It was either that, or remove the car from the game, which would you choose? 

Genuine question; since the majority of car mods are models pirated from a plethora of licensed games without any permissions, what is wrong with modifying them further? None of the mod authors own the rights or licenses to the cars and/or models in question in the cases of them being ripped from Forza, Need For Speed, Gran Turismo, etc. etc. so why should anyone care about nonsense "mod theft" which doesn't make sense in the first place?

Guys! I used to download mods here a long time ago! I'm really happy to see that almost 10 years after I stopped playing TDU there's still a strong community and great mods like these!

Off course I download the mod and did everything as the read-me files, but I'm facing problems to start the game! Could you help me? It doesn't get any far from the "connecting" screen! I've already disabled my firewall but nothing changes...

Because people spend hours of their free time, working and converting cars to TDU, so people can download them for free.  This is exactly what ended TDU modding community, this sort of lack of respect for the time spent doing something for the people.  Everyone grew fed up with having their mods open, edited and re-posted as someone's else work. 

It's not much different if someone downloads Platinum, change 1 car, and reupload it as like, TDU ultimate or whatever the name, without even mention Platinum at all. I sure will not feel happy about it.

I am having an issue where when I cannot upgrade the Tesla Roadster, even though I could enter the tuning shop. Is there any way to fix this?

 

Edit: This also happens with the Model S

Is there some sort of complete car list somewhere? Because I understand that some models will actually chance when upgraded.

For instance: you have to upgrade the Porsche 991.2 Carrera S to obtain the GT2 RS (991.2).

 

Is there any complete list showing what model needs to be bought first before upgrading it to the desired model?

I don't think so, because it is intended, that you have to rediscover the game.
If all people would know all content, that would destroy the fun for the most.

Firstly, thank you for great mode! I especially like car delivery missions with new cars. 

I have little problem, and I didnt find any reason or solution anywhere. I already completed 10 car missions. But now I have problem, that during another car mission, i get massive lags, so the game is unplayable. It firstly appeared in mission with Pontiac Firebird and than also in mission with Trueno. 

Free roam, hitchhiker missions and races seems to be OK. 

Anyone with similar bug?

Thank you.

But what's disrecpectful about fixing a bug inside a mod as long as you don't take credit for the whole mod? And yes, importing models from other games is theft. Modders don't ask the devs permission to import their models

Because as a general rule, it keeps the modding community healthy. It results in less idiots messing with others projects and creating unnecessary disputes that way.

And secondly, piracy is not theft, it's copyright infringement.. but regardless, any concerns about morality are irrelevant because each modding community gets to decide what it's own rules are. Even in the topsite piracy scene, there are even much stricter rules that warez groups must abide by, comparatively.

So, just be happy with what you get for free.

Hey @Milli I was enjoying this wonderful game and witnessed a curious fact!!!!

Lately they have been spawning, police vehicles, but just like a common traffic car. And when I hit them, they change color...

So I wanted to know, about the police spawn as common traffic, is this a bug or was it intentional??

That happens because the police textures.  It's a bug with the original police file, and maybe that's why they were "removed" as traffic from the game.

I love the mod! Totally forgot about TDU but this makes me play it again. I was wondering if there is a possibility to make a wireless xbox one controller work? It connects to my computer via the xbox one dongle

Did you try it yet? Xbox1 drivers should connect because they're xinput. But if they don't, try x360ce, 32-bit build.

I try to create my own sound mod for the Nissan 300ZX using the samples I recorded from GT Sport. I did some test and replaced 350Z_offlow.wav with TDU Modding Tools, now the car doesnt have sound. What could be causing that? Too high file size perhaps?

As far as I'm concerned, that's a feature. It was implemented way back, with an old patch, I think. They did it so cops can show up during online gameplay or something.

Didn't see your reply. Thought no one has replied yet. 

Anyway, I was here for a question. I can't seem to get the Aventador SV to do 0-100km/h in less than 3 sexonds, no matter how much I try. It's no big deal but it just kinda annoys me. Especially when it's supposed to do it faster than 3 or 3.1 seconds. I'm using a keyboard and Sport mode, if that has anything to do with it.

@Milli #bugReport

First of all, thanks. Thanks a lot for this massive work. I found it casually surfing youtube, and saw a video about it. It basically made me start a new game on TDU since 2012, probably. And since I started yesterdaay, I could not stop playing it, because the sheer amount of new content in amazing, and I found again that amazement in exploring the game to find the car of my dreams (I didn't read the car list to not spoil any surprise). So thank you a lot for all this hard work.

 

But now, for the bug report, I'm having a strange issue, apart from the bug at race ending (stuck in the winning screen, but with interior view, not bothering since it happened only in one race (twice, maybe a problem with that race in particular), and it still saved the result). The biggest (and only) serious problem happens while I drive my Skyline R32. The game, after 15-20 minutes of play, suddenly lose frames (It start playing at 2-3 frames per seconds), and became unplayable. I can only manage to quit game, if it does't crash before I reach the "Exit" in the menu.

 

For now, I have tried messing with the HD, SD or OFF in the fx tweak in the launcer, rebooting my pc and playing with another car. The last option seems to work, but I need to play a longer session later in the evening. 

Of course, this last option is not practical, since I can't drive anymore my beloved Skyline R32.

Later I will try the last resort, that is to re-check the torrent file for corruption, re-extract the archive, and replace all the files all over again.

 

I will let you know if anything changes with the last solutions, probably I will edit this post.

 

PS: The first time I encountered this bug, I was in the mod shop with my R32. With the dead frame rate, I also noticed some corrupted textures and models before the game died for good. Since it looks like the game suddenly stop using the dedicated video card, I will try long play sessions in other games. Hopes is not my hardware... Still a potato PC for 2019 standards, but a decent machine a few years back.

 

PPS: I've installed the mod on an original installation of the game, with both official 1.66 patch and megapack.

 

EDIT: I've noticed now the 1.03 update. I'll try it and let you know.
