[FIX] Game freezes when opening map

    Hi all I have a problem in the game.
    When I go to the map the picture freezes and in the background the game continues. Unfortunately, this also happens when I start a championship, as the map also opens for this. What can I do?

    You probably have a graphics card that uses GDDR6 or GDDR6X memory (i.e. Nvidia GTX 16xx, RTX 20xx, RTX 30xx or AMD RX 5xxx, RX 6xxx). This new memory type causes issues when opening the map.

    DXVK a.k.a. "RTX Fix"
    The most common fix is to use the RTX Fix .dll file. It will fix the map freezing issue, but could potentially cause game lag/stability issues also. I will attach it to this post, copy and paste in your TDU2 directory.

    (Download only works after joining the club.)


    I personally have an RTX 3070, and with the RTX Fix the game becomes laggy and unstable. Instead of freezing in the map view, it can freeze randomly now. That's why I use the following method myself:

    Alt-Tab method
    When opening the map for the first time after launching, it opens on the most zoomed in view. This is the view where the game freezes, but does not actually crash. What you want to do is alt-tab out of the game and go back in while quickly zooming out on the map. During alt-tabbing back into the game, it becomes responsive for a second. When you succesfully zoom out, the game should work again.

    Good thing: once you're zoomed out, the map will always open in that view, so it will not crash afterwards. Just don't zoom in too far 😉

    Here's a video showing the method:


    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the quick reply

    Unfortunately no more input devices work only the ESC and T key.
    Steering wheel Logitech G27 and also the keyboard no longer go.
    I also tried to initialize the devices again but no success.


    thanks for help

    That is odd, try this:


    Otherwise, try my alternative fix.

    Olá a todos, tenho um problema no jogo.
    Quando vou para o mapa, a imagem congela e no fundo o jogo continua. Infelizmente, isso também acontece quando eu começo um campeonato, pois o mapa também se abre para isso. O que eu posso fazer?

    This method has no effect on TDU2 that uses dxvk files. I found that when I use dxvk (d3d9.dll). The steam interface in my game disappears and the controller cannot be used. And unfortunately the alt+tab method has no effect on my game From the sad reminder users who use 1660ti.

    Thanks a lot, Aquarious, for all your hints and the fix. Actually this was the only issue I always had, also with the former (Steam) version).

    My experience with TDUW is this:

    - installed TDUW on my 32Gb RAM, Win 10 Pro and GTX 2080Ti PC/system. No nVidia Manager enhacements added. No administrator privileges ticked, no other compatibility adjustments made.

    - that ALT+TAB tip unfortunately didn't work.

    - without the fix, the game ran as a charm, all the graphic details were awesome. Opening the map drove me in deep troubles, black screen and freezing.

    - with thhe fix, the game ran a little more slowly, but always stable. The graphic details became a little more "grainy", let's define them this way because I can't find other words to.

    If worse, let's bear it this way. Hopefully this will be better one day.

    With best regards to all.
