    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 whole new way to play with endless possibilities to choose at your own demand, ready to go. The work being done is beyond the gathering of different vehicles, sounds and gauges from different online websites and packing them together, it goes further to new physics, brand new weather, compatible with HDiR, new world textures and also new music for background and radio statios. New Physics Over 880 vehicles Correct color names Dedicated camera for each vehicle New weather - HDiR compatible New map textures New radio stations Easily moddable Easy installation Optional Russian language Toolkit - How to install - by HGCentral - Launch Trailer - First Trailer Images Modders and special mentions Djey Speeder Pator5 Minime891 Mondodimotori TDUZoqqer Combat-Shotgun Norby931 Miha2795 Tool831 2CV SUPER GT StarGT PhatPunk Reventon09 DriverTDU Takumi Acvet06 Doctor G DjoyTinnio Urban iLLusion Zebukas FenixZ Kvrt666 VDVS Opelos_HUN Tob-Racer MagicV8 Rulezzz VDV522 XtensoJDM t0m3k911 scuderia458 [email protected]= Sourkho And many other who have worked to keep TDU alive and interesting for so many years. TDUCk HF Garage TDULOG :: Test Drive Unlimited tdu.net.ru Drivers-paradise Without everyone, TDU Platinum wouldn't be anything more than a dream, so, all those people deserve a round of applause and we'll meet somewhere in Hawaii. -Always remember to make a backup of your game before you perform any modification. - For existing profiles, it's recommended to sell your vehicles and stay only with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum. - If you're not feeling like selling all vehicles, just drive off the house with an Alfa Romeo GT BEFORE you install TDU Platinum, but this method might crash your game once you check some vehicles in the garage. - Original copy of TDU installed - CPU: Pentium 4/Athlon XP or better - CPU SPEED: 3 GHz - RAM: 2 GB - OS: Windows 2000/XP and above - VIDEO CARD: 512MB Video Card with Pixel & Vertex Shader 2.0 (NVIDIA GeForce 7600+ / ATI Radeon X1600+) - TOTAL VIDEO RAM: 512 MB - 3D: Yes - HARDWARE T&L: Yes - PIXEL SHADER: 3.0 - VERTEX SHADER: 3.0 - DIRECTX VERSION: DirectX 9.0c included - SOUND CARD: Yes - FREE DISK SPACE: 18 GB - Additional Google Drive link ---> Update Patch Q. Why does some vehicles display an absurd Top Speed? That's because how TDU was codded. Sadly, to get the gear ratios to work as they should, you must set the car's Top Speed as the top gear speed. Which means, the maximum speed that the final gear could achieve, regardless of it's power or drag. Usually, vehicles that have an "Overdrive gear" will display absurd values, since the last gear is really long, with the porpouse of fuel saving. Q. Ok, but why it is actually the Top Speed value is lower than the final gear speed? That's because TDU, by standard, adds around 10% more top speed. So, if a car final gear speed is 330 km/h, if you set as 300 km/h, in-game the car will reach 330 km/h. Now, if you set 330 km/h, the car will actually be faster than it should, and will reach 363 km/h. Deducting 10% of the speed makes not only the final gear accurate, but every gear will top at the correct speed, if your gear ratios are correct, which means the speed you need to shift will also be accurate. Q. Why the car classes are broken and i have overpowered vehicles for it's class? Because that was the easiest way i found to get these high-power tunes and keep the game "easily moddable". TDU will only understand a car class change if it reads a new entry on the database. That being said, i would need 4 entries in the car database, for 1 single vehicle, 1 entry being it stock, and 1 new entry for each tune kit. That means instead of 880 vehicles, i would need at least 3520. Not to mention that if someone decides to modify that 1 vehicle, they will need to modify the tuning its aswell. That not only means it would take a long time, but that it would make the game much more complex to be modded, so i used the original upgrade system, that's based on % increase of the base vehicle, but sadly, it doesn't support class changes. Q. The traffic in my game is being glitchy and invisible, what do i do? In the Project Paradise Laucher, make sure to enable V-Sync, to lock your fps to 60. The game won't do well with higher fps. Q. The game is displaying too much brightness, what i did wrong? Usually the dealerships display a higher brightness than the road environment. But also, that could be caused by FX Tweak being enabled in Project Paradise Launcher. TDU Platinum weather system was developed to not require FX Tweak, if you enable it in the launcher, it may override the weather files. Q. The physics have been changed, but they seem the same? That's because the physics engine is the same, but TDU allows each car to have their individual physics worked on, and that's what's been changed. To match real data, because TDU has messed it up even on the original game. Q. TDUPE is not working? Yes it is, but unfortunately i've stumbled across an issue i thought i would have. This issue happens when the database has over a thousand entries, which is the case, since TDU Platinum's database has 1105 entries. So, to use TDUPE, you must follow these steps: To run TDUPE, you must open it as admin. Point your TDU database directory in the settings and click load. Once it has loaded the database, search for the Custom Car you replaced in the car list. Modify and Click save. (That is when the problem starts.) Because TDUPE can't deal with more than 1000 entries in the database, it will make the game crash, to fix that issue, you must open TDU Modding Tools File Browser. Extract the CarPhysicsData.db, located inside the DB.bnk. Decrypt CarPhysicsData.db using TDU UT (this tool i did not provided, but it can be found on the forums) Open it using notepad and set the number of "Items" as 1105, save and close. Encrypt the file again, using TDU UT. Replace the new CarPhysicsData.db inside the DB.bnk. Q. Do i need the game or this is a standalone game? No! You need the game first, this is a mod and won't work on it's own.

    Hawaiian Bliss v4.0 This mod contains my old weather mod, Hawaii Beauty Enhancer, revamped and improved. If you liked my old mod, you'll absolutely love this one! The mod contains: ~100 new textures imported and edited from TDU 2 & Hawaii Beauty Enhancement - these include road, rocks, trees, grass, bushes and many more! 5 separate in game days (and nights). Nights have a moon (texture from TDU 2) Vastly improved reflections! Greatly improved water V4.0 Pictures: Link to album of pictures (v4.0) Pink Sunset: Day 1 Sunset: Purple Sunset: Bright Sunset: Day 1 & 2 (compared) : Morning: Night time : Cloudy Morning: Cloudy Day: Cloudy Sunset: All pictures were done with HD300 draw distance mod. Anisotropic Filtering x16 was forced through Nvidia Panel. In-game settings were HDR: ON, Texture Quality: High, Resolution: 1920 x 1080, Anti-Aliasing: x4. Hawaiian Bliss v1.0 (OLD): Link to album of pictures (v1.0) The pictures were made using HDR Mode, standard/stock TDU textures and were not edited. Anisotropic x16 was forced through Nvidia Panel. Download link for the v1.0 version mod. The mod is made for and on HDR, but I've included a non-HDR version as well. It does work, but results may differ slightly from the HDR version. Especially during night time. The mod is also made for and on standard/stock TDU textures, using a texture pack may give you significantly different results. To get the same amount of clarity/detail in the game, you MUST force Anisotropic Filtering to x16 in your Nvidia Control Panel! Same goes for AMD alternative! Hawaiian Bliss v2.0 (OLD): Link to album of pictures. (v2.0) Changes to V2.0: Fixed bug with clouds not appearing on the Sky. Reworked HDR mode, no more constant change of brightness while using HDR! Completely reworked night mode for easier cruising and racing. Made changes to reflections, no more "glowing" cars on sunny days. Every weather has been fine-tuned for better cruising experience. Visibility increased. DOWNLOAD LINK V2.0 (OLD!) Hawaiian Bliss v3.0 (OLD): Link to album of pictures. (v3.0) Changes to V3.0: ~100 new textures imported and edited from TDU 2 & Hawaii Beauty Enhancement - these include road, rocks, trees, grass, bushes and many more! Fine-tuned darker weathers for better visibility Nights have a moon (TDU 2 texture) This mod includes HD100 patch DOWNLOAD LINK V3.0 (OLD!) Hawaiian Bliss v4.0: Tweaks to most weathers - vastly improved visibility Better fit with the new textures from v3.0 Small fixes on saturation in some weathers A bit lighter effects, more emphasis on subtlety DOWNLOAD LINK V4.0 How to Install: Download the mod (v4.0) Choose draw distance settings Extract it into your main TDU folder Enjoy! If you don't like the Textures OR Weather mod, you can download the original/stock TDU ones with the links below: Stock TDU Textures | Stock TDU Weather FAQ Q: Will I be able to play online with this mod? A: Yes. The mod does work online, however since online time scale is static, in game days will pass very slowly. Q: How long does it take to get through a whole day playing online? A: A whole day (sunrise to next day's sunrise) should take about 4.5 hours according to my calculations. Q: Can we make the days shorter? A: Offline, yes. An offline day should take about 30 minutes. Online time, however, is static for everybody. We can only make the days longer, unfortunately.. Q: But, kristiannn, I see you've added two sunrises, three mid days and two sunsets each day, what if we delete them? A: I've made it that way, so the proportions between morning, day, sunset and night are normal. Also, if we remove any weather sets and do not add more days into the rotation, this will only result in days being longer, not shorter. Q: Will my game run slower with the new v3.0 textures? A: Yes, there is an FPS drop between v2.0 and v3.0. If you are experiencing it, I would suggest using the stock TDU textures. Q: Which version to choose? (OFF/HD100/HD300/HDU) A: Pick the highest draw distance that can give you playable FPS. If game starts to lag, decrease the draw distance. Q: Does this mod work with TDU Platinum / UCP / any car pack? A: Yes! Install TDU Platinum (or any other car pack) and apply this mod after that. Known Bugs as of v3.0: - NONE I think that's all, if you have ANY suggestions, I'd gladly consider them. And please, leave a comment with feedback, I'm really curious to see if you like it as much as I do!

    Djey: TDUF Toolset [1.12]

    I got Millis Platinum installed and of course I use Djeys TDUF Database Editor. I think, it's not only with me, but when I use the vehicle dropdown list in TDUF DE, brands are kinda unsorted with me. So I decided to create a sortable table of that list at my website to find vehicles slots "faster". Feel free to use it, if it's helpful for you. Consider to wait very few seconds for sorting, because there are 1100+ entries. If you find any mistakes, please drop me a line, thank you.

    TDUZoqqer: TDU Platinum custom traffic

    First off, yay to WIP threads not being read-only anymore. And yeah, call it "tDuZoQqEr iS bAcK" as much you want, but I'm not modding again (yet). Since Milli said in her club thread that custom traffic won't be a thing in TDU Platinum since all custom traffic mods are quite heavy weight, I offered my help to make a custom, realistic traffic pack for the mod. And since I didn't want to spam the thread with my progress, since it's a TDU Platinum thread at the end of the day, and not "Zoqqers epic modeling showoff", here's a standalone thread. The traffic cars read as following: Original thread can be found here: Progress: 2016 Nissan Altima (Compact1) 2002 Gillig Low Floor (Bus1) 2017 Chevrolet Express 3500 (Minivan1) 2018 Honda Accord (Fullsize1) 2012 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab (SUV1)

    Tutorials and Installation Guides

    Install Guide: Setting up TDU's graphic options for best effect: So since i discovered the Platinum Mod and by extension TDU i have been through a process of trial and error to get the best out of the game on my system. My System Specs: CPU: i5 3350P 3.1Ghz RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz GPU: 4GB 1050 Ti Game installed on HDD (not SSD). Screen: a native 1920x1080 flat screen TV @60Hz In game graphic settings: Resolution: 1600x1024 Refresh Rate: 60Hz Anti-Aliasing: 4x HDR: (on) Brightness = Max Level of Details = High Nvidia Control Panel Settings: I set these for both the Project Paradise Launcher.exe and the Test Drive Unlimited.exe (just to be sure nothing is missed). Ansiotropic filtering: 16x Antialiasing - FXAA = on Antialiasing - Gamma correction = on Antialiasing - Mode = Enhance the application setting Antialiasing - Setting = 8x Antialiasing - Transparency = Multisample (on my system using Supersampling introduces flickering artifacts on distant objects) Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) = on Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias = Clamp Texture filtering - Quality = High Quality Triple buffering = on Vertical sync = Adaptive All other settings not mentioned are left at default settings. Project Paradise Launcher: Windowed = on Unlock Settings (Windowed) = on Vsync = on HD = on (as i use the 'HD300' graphic enhancements from the HawaiianBliss v4.0 mod). Fuel = on Big .bnk = on ----------------------- With those settings when i launch the game via the Project Paradise Launcher i get a small(ish) window on my native 1920x1080 display. I normally run my games windowed as i have some utilities that i run to monitor performance and hardware and provide recording etc. So on the right of the screen i have Piriforms Speccy to monitor a range of hardware temps (from CPU to GPU and HDD/SSD), then below that GPU-Z to monitor the GPU in detail, then at the bottom a 'detatched' section from the MSI afterburner software to show graphs for FPS, CPU usage and RAM usage. I also use Riva Tuner part of MSI Afterburner to set an FPS cap of 60. I also run DXtory and use that to display FPS on screen when running a game (and to record any footage if i choose etc). So with that right section of the screen occupied i take the TDU screen that Project Paradise launches and drag it to the top left of the screen space, then using the 'windows' key to get out of the TDU screen and carefully select and drag the games window down and to the right to take up the available space and keep my game monitoring software in view. It looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/5tLDfKX.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5Z3Iq42.png As for the general settings above i spent the last few months working out what worked best. Setting the resolution in game to 1920x1080 and running it windowed gave it lots of ugly jaggies, even with all the Antialiasing i threw at it. So for Windowed mode it is best to set an in-game resolution less than your display resolution and simply drag the window to fit what you want. With the HD300 pack from HawaiianBliss v4.0 mod i mostly get a solid 60FPS (keep in mind I cap the game to that) with just the occaisonal dip into the 50's. Hopefully this guide will aid those looking to get the best out of how TDU can look

    I find it 'amusing' when the traffic in front decides to change lane, then changes it's mind at the last minute and drifts back! Never assume that 'other' driver knows what they hell they are doing (in relation to driving a car) or where the hell they are going. A good rule in general for driving in real life and TDU!

    1.) No one really uses fuel because the island is lacking stations up north. So, its not possible to get from station to station if you drive the coast. 2.) Try checking "Vsync" in the Project Paradise Launcher. It sounds like your framerate is uncapped; that causes all sorts of traffic problems. You need it capped at 60, checking "Vsync" should cover it.

    Change Camera FOV using TDUF

    Nope, not to my knowledge at least. Tduf does only modify database files and a few bin files. Only project paradise uses a dll injection, allowing to override variables in memory. That's why projects such as tdu platinum are so huge and take time, author has to make changes on each car and test results in game...

    Yes, it´s like you said, i`m spanish, so i understand a little what he try to do, he is simply showing that the game is compatible with Oculus DK2 but making use of a VR external software that is VorpX, i get it work of course adquiring a VorpX license and then download compatible vr game list from this software, search TDU VR profile and then run game with that profile, but i only get it work with original TDU files, If i try using it with mod, show a message that i can´t remember now. Ingame with VorpX and TDU profile, assign a key in keyboard to look with mouse and after press it, you can see all around with VR Visor. There is another way and is with TrackIR but i don´t try it, it´s a little expensive... in eBay there is "first contact TrackIR" with PS3EYE and another thing that simulate what TrackIR doing ingame. I think i find a bug. If you choose Peugeot 308GTi and use cockpit camera. Km/h \ Mph gauges get wrong/overpass Km/h limit when you reach over 200 for example, needle goes down and down and return to 0 Km/H, it´s like is not syncroniced or something like that... My impressions about mod are very high! Very Good work! Are there more Peugeot / PUG? In Ultra-Community-Pack there was a 206. I found a problem when i try to play it again, I can´t remember how to activate fuel mod, even if i select it in launcher doesn´t appear to work ingame. Edit: I don´t see that someone mention about VR and tracking... my fault...

    Version 1.0.0


    A redux version of a mod I posted on the Discord originally. Uploaded to TurboDuck for permanence. This mod reduces all transmission whine (except from reversing) by ~50% normally, or ~80% for the quieter option. It's at a volume that's still audible, but not louder than the engine audio. The main version is recommended since the quieter version can barely be heard. Preview (of the main version) If I messed something up, please report it. The quieter version was untested, and I don't use this mod when I play.

    Being a dx9 game, it should be possible with 3rd party software, but don't expect head traking in game... Try lookin' for VR softwares for game without native support on google. I used TriDef 3d for some experiments' but my hardware wasn't up to the task. This guy get it working with head tracking. But the video is not in english, even I cannot understand what he's saying.

You might try Amazon or eBay, for starters, or simply search on Google.. Here is one seller that I found: https://www.thegamecollection.net/test-drive-unlimited-pc/ TrustPilot AU gives this store a 94% Excellent rating for safety. This forum will not permit links to illegitimate sources of the game. How do I run the game on Windows 10 The PC-DVD version of the game comes with SecuROM security, which is blocked by Microsoft in Windows 10. The only known workaround is to use a No-DVD patch. Please find and use one at your own risk, and do not link to such a file on these forums. Can I still play online Yes, thanks to the incredible work of some community modders. While the game servers officially went offline years ago, you can make use of the Project Paradise mod for TDU. This includes a Launcher with various parameters and a d3d9.dll file which should be saved in the same folder as your game executable. Please follow the installation instructions included with this mod. If you begin a new savegame profile, you will need to complete a tutorial before you can play online. This includes renting a car, buying a house, buying a car, completing a race, and entering your house. When you leave your house you will be able to free-ride with other players. Some multiplayer aspects of the game, such as Online Races and Clubs will not work. How do I find a specific vehicle that I want to purchase Explore the island of O'ahu in free-ride and look for dealerships. As you discover them, they will appear on your map allowing you to fast travel to them later. How do I enter the race track at the southern-central part of the map This can be unlocked by reaching a certain level of the game (before Champion) by completing achievements. You can view your achievement progress from inside one of your houses. I see other players in the airport or in other fenced-off locations. How do I get in there Firstly, you must reach the 'Champion' level in the game by completing various achievements. When you reach this level you unlock Hardcore Mode. You can switch to Hardcore Mode via the main menu after selecting your savegame. This mode attempts to offer more simulation-style handling and physics but has the side effect of low gravity. You can drive into certain plants/gardens at high speed to jump over various fences. Or you drive a motorcycle on one wheel as you crash into a friend parked in front of a fence with a low, ramp-like bonnet. Once you enter a fenced-off area, pause the game and save a Bookmark. You can teleport to your Bookmarked locations from the map. How do I level up.. What is required for Ace rank Check your rank progress when you're in your house. It's under the info tab. Leveling your rank is all about completing specific tasks. You have to gold cup all the missions, buy 15 houses, buy 50 cars, buy 3 cars of certain brands, buy clothes, drive the whole map, and log 5k miles to reach Ace. Multiplayer tasks have been modded out, so you'll reach 100% completion and Ace rank if you just complete all the singleplayer tasks. Everything should be buyable without having to grind missions if you buy cheap tuners for the races, and cheap houses and cheap cars to fulfill the progress requirements for Ace rank. Afterwards, you can just sell all the filler cars and clean out your garage. How do I use the G-Meter Use hardcore mode then press Ctrl+G How do I deal with people I do not want to drive with There is an ignore option. You have to go into the auxiliary menus while in the car. The options are Radio, Chronopack, Driving Aid, and Free-Ride Players. Go to Free-Ride Players and invite everyone you want into the group. When they're all linked to the group, select ISOLATE. When ISOLATE is selected, the people who aren't in the group disappear after a few moments. Note this only works in a group of 2 or more people. If you are alone, then map out to somewhere else or pause until that person leaves. How to adjust car handling Remember to set your steering sensitivity in Options. It can be the difference between a nice feeling car and a car that handles like poop. The ideal is to make it responsive yet also smooth and stable. How do I drift Use hardcore mode, no assist, manual. How do I sell cars You can go to your house, into "Trade", sell car or sell bikes, and direct sell it for half-price. Or you must fill up all your house slots with cars. When you try to purchase a new car at a dealership, the option to sell your car will pop up. At this time you can select multiple cars to sell if you want. The car I want to sell isn't on the list of cars to sell Sometimes when you want to sell a car, its not there on the list. You have to go back to your house garage and move that car to a different house. Now when you go back to the dealership, it should show up as sellable. Issues and Troubleshooting Traffic sometimes suddenly appears out of nowhere or otherwise moves sparodically This can often occur when your framerate exceeds 60FPS. Try enabling VSYNC in the game options. I am unable to start the car engine or move anywhere in free-ride Check your game control options - you might have a button mapped to 'Engine Start' I am having problems using the game with my Logitech G27 steering wheel There is a mod available for that: Gameplay Performance Improvement Tips 1. If you are suffering from poor performance, you might want to disable the HDR feature that can be accessed by accessing Options>Video in the game. The game world might not look as beautiful as with HDR enabled, but it should run at a smoother rate for you to enjoy the game. 2. You also may want to disable the Anti-Aliasing feature as this will lighten the load on your video card and your CPU a lot. 3. You may also reduce the resolution, and/or use the level of detail slider in video options. 4. Rename Particles.bnk in Euro\Bnk\Fx to disable various fx (smoke, sparks, etc.) 5. Use the the 4GB executables provided in the TDU Platinium's lastest patch. Configure Your Firewall or Router for Internet Play: Port Forwarding When you play on a system that is behind a firewall or proxy, certain ports may need to be opened to connect to multiplayer games. (Note: Doing this may also resolve issues with lagging players.) You must be able to access these external ports: UDP 8880->8889 UDP 8890 UDP 27000->30000 TCP 6667 TCP 27000->30000 You have to open the following local port: TCP8889 Ports 17475 and 9961 (TCP/UDP) must be opened. If you are unfamiliar with port forwarding, search for basic guides on how to do so. Generally, you just have to access your router and/or firewall's settings and manually add permissions for the ports listed above. Multi-Core Processor Support (addressing framerate loss) With the release of multi-core processors, some titles that were designed for single-core processors are having issues. These issues can manifest as the following: - Choppy and/or stuttering performance, sometimes manifesting as random pausing, during gameplay. - Gameplay performing at hyper speeds making it impossible to play. These issues are being caused due to the timestamp counter not always being read correctly (more specifically, different timestamp counters in the system may contain different values) by the game. To prevent this, you can try setting what is called the thread affinity for your game. To do this please do the following: 1. Start your game. 2. Once you have reached the main menu press ALT+TAB (press and hold the ALT key while pressing the TAB key) which should then minimize your game to a window on your taskbar. 3. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up your Windows Task Manager. 4. Click the tab 'Processes' and locate the executable file for your game. Typically this will be named after the game you are running. 5. Select the application by moving your mouse pointer and pressing your right-mouse button. 6. This should then bring up a menu and select 'Set Affinity'. From this window make sure that only CPU 0 is selected and no others and click 'OK'. 7. Once this is completed press ALT+TAB to return to your game. Should your game crash during this process your settings will still be saved and you should be able to re-launch the game without an issue. I'm having alt-tabbing issues: the screen goes black Use Borderless Gaming, set the in-game display to windowed mode, and it will become fullscreen and alt-tabbable without crashing. My gamepad isn't working properly In general, try x360ce 32-bit build. For DS4 controllers, try DS4windows. In regards to DS4windows, newer builds may not run, but older Jays2Kings versions might work for you (ex. Version 1.4.52). More info here and here. I cannot connect to my friend online Try meeting up and waiting somewhere remote on the map to increase your chances of being in the same session. And sometimes if someone just won't show up, try rebooting the game. If this problem is persistent, refer to the Port Forwarding section in this FAQ. How can I join a club in-game Online features are not working in Project Paradise, only free roam. d3d9.dll keeps getting removed from my system When installing Project Paradise, be sure to deactivate any realtime antivirus function. It may be detect the d3d9 files as a virus and immediately delete them. You can go to the quarantine area in your antivirus software, make an exclusion for them, and restore them. Also, any overlay display may create issues with d3d9 injections. Try closing them. Or, if you have MSI Afterburner running, go to "Riva Tuner" (it's in your bar next to the clock while MSI Afterburner is running). There's an option in there called "Custom Direct3D Support", see if it works after enabling it. My game keep crashing while connecting to TestDrive server Try repairing your redist versions: Visual C++ 2015-2019, both x64 and x86
