Mate do the entire community a favor and never come back. If you want a game like this go buy forza or TDU3 when it comes out. I don’t understand why some people have the nerve to feel this entitled. This mod is simply not for you. You don’t like a lot of things that can really be fixed by actually purchasing a current gen game, so do that instead of demotivating these amazing people who have given an old game so much replay value and so much life.

You could work "intelligently" and by making your life easier, including the contributors ones, but creating subforums inside that main forum, with the same name as the base ones (rather tag the topic, even if adding a prefix like "[VM]" for "Vehicle mods", etc.).

I've not suggested to "contact author" huh! Just wait for he/she or someone else to take a look and provide a download link or upload a file, then you, admins/moderators will edit the first post with the new download link. But of course contacting the author will be a nice thing to do in order to have more chances at filling all of those dead links, if none of the others including admins have those files.

Request author permission for what? Just editing the post with new download link(s)? Or something else? Because for making the things right for the sake of the quality of your website, as admins, you do not need to waste your time at asking such permission, neither for moving the topics to another forum! If I would be an author, who have made and posted a file, then if this one is gone, I'll be glad you take the lead at reuploading it without my permission, so users could enjoy again my stuff! So do not be stupid at thinking it's a bad practise while it's a good one in such critical case! And, while you do not modify the content of the file I do not see the problem, this is better to have a link than none of it.

Also, doing that I'm saying will clean up the standard forums, where only content with valid links could be found, not gallery/garbage with... And will be simpler for all the users, so they will know that all they can see in such forum, has a link/file!!

Try to be (or, imagine) on the forum like "a new user" (like me), who wants to get some content, but where most of it has "dead links", this makes the people a bit angry and attempted to complain like I do, or, just shut up and move elsewhere. I know it's a long work but you can do it sometimes, step by step, and take the lead with that.

And again, I'm suggesting things that annoy me (and others), but if for you this does not appear "dramatic" as it is, or, if you prefer more do "act of presence" by answering people when you come, instead of working on those dead links some minuts per day, so be it.

I'm already busy alone with a personnal project that took me thousand of hours (I code stuff for it in C++, etc., despite I'm not very good at it and it's more a hobby), so sorry, but I do not feel to contribute much to other content, I'm more a TDU game user and simple visitor who suggests things to improve in order to have a better content, no one who suggests things at multiple areas/domains can do the things himself huh. People have the right to post comments/ideas without being forced to do that they are saying themselves. So that's up to you to take them, or leave them!

I play that game for "relaxing" and have fun, I do not feel to work for it at all. Meantime, maybe I could take some times at some moment to do that I suggested about dead links, the easiest for me will be, you create those new forums, then give me "topic move right", so I track them, then move them to the right new forum, but you are not gonna give such admin right to me huh?! So what way should I use? Create a .php page with all the clikable links of dead topics, then you browse the list and move them yourself? If that's O.K. maybe I could do it, but both of us will need to work and the total time allocated for doing the job will be higher.

But maybe I could find some time for contribute, despite it's possible I may not. But seriously, at your place, you could try to do it, with moderation, like for example, in the "Vehicle mods" category, there are like 25 topics per page, and x40, so around 1000 topics. So, every day, or, every two day, you control 4 pages (100 topics) of them, then move the wrong ones without DL to the new forum where contribution is required. Then in a few weeks the category will be finished... And after that, the "Vehicle Mods" category will only have available content, users will prefer that, because right now when you see dead links on some, every time I click on a new topic I'm afraid I got an invalid link, this is exasperating, and after a few, I even do not even want to waste time at browsing the rest since those ones will be probably dead too, seriously! In my head I'm almost like "so which one I try that could work?"

  

I was talking about dead links, of all of that content that attract us, but where at the end, we can not get it.

in my opinion homeladder's suggestions are welcome and respectable and ofcourse they dont insult the perfection of the game and platinum mod

if i win many million money i ll spend to the modders and to the developers to make the TDU complete mod edition bcs i recognise that this game has something unique that very few people has discover .it is the car behaviour that you can drift at high speed helping you win the races and for those who havent realised that detail at arcade mod there is the hardcore mode which makes this detail more obvious but at lower speed

so in this case one game tdu is actually 8 games 

1 tdu arcade with full driving aid

2 tdu arcade with sport driving aid

3 tdu arcade with hypersport driving aid

4 tdu arcade with off driving aid

5 tdu hardcore with full driving aid

6 tdu hardcore with sport driving aid 

7 tdu hardcore with hypersport driving aid 

8 tdu hardcore with off driving aid 

each game has a unique drifting style which make you hyperdriver--happierdriver 

so any added idea at these dreamfull driving experiences are welcome 

i was praying for years to manage to have some of all these delicious mods and finally i got them free

thank you all and God bless you

Time to re-discover the island of Oahu. TDU Platinum pursue the objective to be more than a collection of many different mods in a pack, the objective is to deliver a whole new experience, a who

Guys, progress is happening, at slow pace, since i have even less free time, but TDU Platinum v2.0 (a.k.a former update 1.13 that grew enough to be called v2.0) is happening. 

BOOM!   Check OP for download links.

I did. Sadly it doesn't help. I also gave Project Paradise admin perms. Do I need to use the torrent version of the modpack, or is it okay if I used the Google Drive link?

 

I've heard you told one user who had a similar issue to update their DirectX... which version might it be?

Don't delete the d3d9.dll, otherwise it won't work. Missing cars is bigbnk not being active. Either by you not activating it, or by Project Paradise not working.

Also, by the way... 

 

Hi, thanks for your reply.

 

I did not delete d3d9.dll (at least not intentionally, and never deleted it in general) and bigbnk is checkmarked in the Project Paradise launcher. I updated Directx9 and made sure I have the newest version of it.

 

Could it be because I own the retail CD version? I heard there is a gold version of the game with all the DLCs that I might be missing out.

No, all you need is a copy of TDU installed. Gold or non-gold. Megapack and DLC is not necessary. If you correctly installed it, project paradise is working, big bnk is active, then you should have the cars. 

Make sure that your game, in the main menu screen, reads as v0.03a, instead of 1.66 or anything like it.

In the main menu screen, it reads as v0.03a, I dragged and dropped everything from the "Test Drive Unlimited" folder into the main game's directory, I load the game via the Project Paradise Launcher (also as an admin), I check Big .bnk, I cleared every save, I've also installed it on the C : drive, still the same issue. Once I buy a rented "invisible" car, the game crashes.

 

Do you think using a savefile would help, although it being heavily discouraged?

Edit: What I've noticed is that even with VSync enabled, I receive around 120 FPS in the rent a car dealership, whereas I get around 60 FPS during cutscenes. I've tried limiting the FPS with RTSS and NVIDIA Control Panel, none of them worked... 😞

No. It's not a savegame. And i have no clue about what your issue is.

Don't run it with RTSS running, i've had that cause problems before (it 'clashes' with the project paradise launcher i think). 120 fps in the 'shops' is fine, as is 60fps in game when using Vsync from the project paradise launcher, it's working ok.

 

However i'd suggest you might be looking to do a complete reinstall from scratch and follow closely the video guide at the start of this thread. I also have the retail disk and following that video guide 'exactly' helped me to get it to run fine. I did install outside of the C: drive and 'Program Files' though to avoid any potential admin access issues from that. My game is on E:\\Games\Atari etc.

First off, this mod is absolutely incredible!  I don't know how much the physics were tweaks for the modded cars but coming from Assetto Corsa, some of these cars are spot-on in hardcore mode! 

I have one request though: make Hardcode mode unlocked by default, or at least make it an option to gain champion status by default. 

It took me several hours to unlock and I basically cheesed it by buying cars and doing a single challenge over and over again.  I have several friends who won't try this game coming from Assetto Corsa simply because of this limitation.  Sim racing enthusiasts like me would be crawling all over this game if hardcore mode could be used from the get go.

Using a savegame fixes your issue:

I have seen this but avoided it since it was for version 1.01.  Does it work for 1.12?

The version number is actually a bit unclear. The author actually meant version 1.0.1 of the savefile, not Platinums version. 🙂 It should work just fine for any version of Platinum.

Hey everybody!

I'm enjoying the Platinum patch very, very much! It made me return to the game after a few years and remember how great the handling is in TDU and how great it is to drive around an actual, realistic (and gorgeous) location.

I have a question though. Is it possible to reduce the shine on the cars? On most of them it's a bit excessive, not realistic at all IMO. Is there a setting that handles this or is it something that's coded in each car model?
