How do I play TDU Platinum online?


Question

Hello all, 🙂

I'm new here and this is my first post here.


When creating an account you have the option to go online when you create a GameSpy account (which is long dead, I know).

Anyway, I tried to give it a shot and put in some emailadress and password but when the game wants to contact the servers it can't make contact.

Now I would like to know if you can play online multiplayer with TDU Platinum and how I should do it and wheter it is even worth it regarding the playerbase (if it's more than 1 besides me I'm okay with it 😄).

I have a legit copy of TDU by the way if it matters.

Hey man, thanks!
Good to know you can still play online. 😄

I'm online now. 🙂

My mistake was I replaced the d3d9.dll with my own generated by SweetFX.
But that brings me to my next problem. The reason I wanted to use SweetFX is because the game for some reason is way too dark. I thought it was just a bad case of ENB abuse but I remember having this issue as wel with the vanilla game but not this worse. The problem is that the shadows are way too dark or just too much contrast, I don't know. I haven't checked the FX boxes in the launcher by the way, I also haven't checked HDR in the video options. Setting the brightness higher works in fullscreen mode but not in windowed mode, but even turned high things still look off.

I know with SweetFX I can largely mend this issue, as I had similar problems in Just Cause 2, but this mod doesn't allow me to use it.

TDU Reshade mod works in windowed mode. And it works with online aswell. Take a look at it.

Thank you, I'm so happy! 🤩

 

It took me a while to figure out how Reshade works but I got it running and I can see everything now.
I noticed that in windowed mode a lot of stuff dissapeared like my avatar and cars in the showrooms, also my gpu ran 10 degrees hotter. Not a biggy, I'll be just running in fullscreen mode.

Uhm,

I'm sorry to ask but I've still have a few problems.

The first is that there seems to be no sky in my game. At first I didn't notice it immediately but the skybox is always completely cyan colored and never changes.

 

The other is that framerate is not very smooth, actually I think I should get better performance out of this game but during races I get heavy framerate dips or stutters.

My hardware is:
Windows 10 Pro x64

Intel i7 4770K
16GB DDR4

AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB

Okay I found the cause of both issues or at least solutions.

To get normal sky I replaced the Platinum mod FX folder with the vanilla one.

The bad framerates were caused because I used the improved draw distance mod, I now just use vanilla draw distance and don't see much of a difference if I'm honest.
