    Patch server of TDU2 now works fine! link - http://patchserver.testdriveunlimited2.com/ (you can ping it) You can download game updates via original UpLauncher.exe But now I works with new launcher for TDU2 with checking & update game to the latest version of the game (if official patch server will be offline, I'll make the alternative patch server (mirror). Why? for TDU2 online)

    Hey Milli. Hello all the other old friends Yes I've been away for so long. So many reasons made me disappear from here, life, work, depression, and so on. Plus I got bored with TDU's roads and I played too much competitive Sim Racing like GT Sport, Assetto Corsa and others... Thanks to you Milli, you've made an outstanding work here ! Absolutely mad ! You like many others (Djey, franks...) made me come back playing. I guess you never forget your first game crush. Been testing and playing for a while. No problem encountered yet since V1.00. I love that you've changed not only the cars but the general TDU experience. The race tour of the island is much better and somehow harder with a crazy fast AI that did a lap of 46mins30 with the F1 GTR. All is well and flawless. Just a little criticism: car sound wise a few cars don't sound right like I don't get why Lancia 037's 4 cylinder sound like BMW M1's Inline-6. Or some cars sound too similar like the Maserati's V8s and the Audi's V8s. So at the moment I'm looking inside my old massive TDU mods folder to see if I can get a few great sound to give a bit of variety and sense. If turboduck give me permission, I'll post a pack of sound mods for all the Platinium+Atari cars. But it's not all bad, you added some great sounds specially all the Supras. And why all the HUD's file names have "WHUD" ? In my tutorial I've name the SLS's HUD "WHUD" because they are 2 gauges mods for the SLS: one with a White HUD and one with a Black HUD. So I feel sorry for everyone putting the effort of naming their HUD "WHUD" You can give the bnk's name any names you like in reality So other than all that, BIG THANK YOU to you and all the community for this monster work. On a final note, I'm gonna help feed the wiki specially the "add cars slots" part. Cheers ! See you on the road ! Toby

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.

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
