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.) 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.

    The School of Modding

    Hello everyone Since Project Paradise is released and TDU Online back, there is a great effort from every modders and a fantastic enthusiast from the community it self for improving TDU1. The work of modders are remarkable and big thanks for the great cars, sound, physics, tools and future Patches. I know some people here who wants to do some modding but don't really have the skills, the time, the motivation and so many other reason to make mod. I want to talk more to people (like me) who wants to learn modding and wants to get skills. People who wants to see their dream car ingame or in the mod shop of Tduck So my idea is to create a thread about sharing all our basic knowledge of modding and help each other for making mods. For example, What is really a DDS ? What tools do we need to make sound mods ? How to make accurate physics ? How to import a 3D Model to TDU ? Etc... Actual Modders can also share their knowledge if they want to; I've read somewhere that [email protected] is making a video tutorial for car modding, don't know if it's still on it. Thanks for his enthusiast Hopefully we'll see more modders around in the future. The first post will be updated with interesting and useful tips and links to complete tutorial for sound mods, HUDs, Import Cars... (I think Iced_Bullet have done something like that in the past but he's not around anymore) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - THREAD UNDER CONSTRUCTION Summary: I. Basics and Facts a) Explanation about modding b) Definition of Formats II. Making Mods a) Tutorial by Djey. All the Basics b) Sound Mods c) HUD Gauges d) Importing cars e)Making Accurate Physics f) Using and modifying DDS g) Other stuffs III. Install Mods into TDU a) TDU Modding Tools b) TDU Performance Editor c) Bnks I. BASICS AND FACTS a) EXPLANATION ABOUT MODS A Mod is something modified from the original game or an addon. It could be anything like a new car, Environments mod, Weather Mods, Sound Mods... For example, The original game doesn't have a BMWs, Porsches, Autumn environment, Day-Night Cycle; With mods, all these things are possible ! Or if you think the sound of your Gallardo sound awful, the dashboard of your Ferrari looks bad, or you want a customize number plate, that's again possible ! b) DEFINITION ABOUT FORMATS BNK: Or TDU Bank, these files are an element of the game. It could be Sounds, Car Exteriors, Car Interiors, Rims, Gauges HUD, Traffic, Environments... Etc. These file contains loads of different files. For example, Enzo_I.Bnk have 3D Elements and Textures (2db) inside the BNK File. Enzo_audio.Bnk have Wave sounds and an XMB file. Commonworld.Bnk have loads of 2db Texture files. This file can be open by Mini BNK Manager or File Browser in TDU Modding Tools. 2db: It's a texture file who is generally inside Bnks. But you can find in ...\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FX 3 2db's files. These file can be converted in DDS with TDU Modding Tools to be modified. DDS: Direct Draw Surface. These files are Textures. Example: The Roads in game are originally 2db file in CommonWorld.Bnk but once converted with TDUMT, there are DDS. When you open a the DDS file of roads, you have that: (r5_00.dds original Atari) You can open and modify DDSs with Paint.NET, Adobe Photoshop, Artweaver and create new grass, road surfaces, billboards, plate numbers and so many other stuff in the game. But don't forget to convert your DDS back into 2DB file with TDUMT and make sure to backup any files your modifying ! 3DG, 3DD : (Can't perfectly explain it my self) It's the file who support the original 3D Model of the car. 2DM: Wave: It's a Microsoft sound sample format who can last as many time possible. But in TDU, it have to be sample that last beetween half a sec to 10 sec. Most of these sample are inside "CAR"_audio.bnk in Bnk/Sound/Vehicules and makes the sound of the car. Most of the audio Bnks have 7 Wave sample. For making sound mods, The TDU sound format MUST BE in Microsoft ADPCM format, 44khz, 4 bit, mono. These file can be play Modify with Audacity, Gold Wave, Creative WaveStudio, etc... tdupk: Or TDU Performance Pack. It's a file who contains values of a specific car like not to 60 mph acceleration, suspension rate, Gearbox ratios, Power, Nm, Engine displacment, wheelbase, etc... And can be open only by TDU Performance Editor. II. MAKING MODS (TO BE DEVELOP, A LOT MORE EXPLAINED AND CLEAR. At the moment, I just link and quote. The community will improve all that ourself) a) TUTORIAL BY DJEY. ALL THE BASICS > TDU Modding Capitalization by Djey & Oahu Cars Unlimited [FR] Community [DEAD LINK, MIGHT REFRESH IT IF POSSIBLE] b) SOUND MODS c) HUD d) IMPORTING CARS Tools: Forza Studio for Forza Motorsport Models. ZModler Paint.NET, Photoshop, Artweaver... For Tool's thread, don't pay too much attention for the size limit as Project Paradise Big Bnks option solved today that issue This tutorial is understandable but way too fast. I've tried my self to import a car with this tutorial but you have to pause the video every 5sec... Oh well, you can manage doing a mod but it's a bit annoying to stop the video. e) MAKING ACCURATE PHYSICS First Download TDUPE > TDU Performance Editor 2.77 > TDU Performance Editor 2.78 IMPORTANT: Open TDUPE, Click on Settings, Select the Locality to the same language of the game ! Once you've done that, again click settings, and set the Installation Directory to C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited. (Tested only with 2.77 -2.78) MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE MODIFYING ANY DATA ! It depends of how you want your car. If you want realistic physics based on a real car, I suggest you these website: > Automobiles Catalogues: Very complete datas of any sort of cars ! The best in my opinion. > Supercars.Net Not many data information but you can learn a lot about the car you want. Very complete list of cars. > Supercarsite.net: Another pretty good website > Google: Yes. This website too help a lot Jut search the car you want and pick the website you find interesting. > YouTube: Yes. This website is useful too for watching reviews and know more about your car. Usefull thread: If you want physics on your own taste, bit of explanation: TO COME LATER Credits to Dredgy f) USING AND MODIFYING DDS Very old thread: g) OTHER STUFFS To Continue... III. INSTALL MODS INTO TDU a) TDU Modding Tools Download it here first: TDUMT 1.16.2 by Djey b) TDU PERFORMANCE EDITOR Download above in Making Accurate physics. Unzip your .Zip / .Rar somewhere. IMPORTANT: Open TDUPE, Click on Settings, Select the Locality to the same language of the game ! Once you've done that, again click settings, and set the Installation Directory to C:\Programes Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited. (Tested only with 2.77 -2.78) MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE BEFORE MODIFYING ANY DATA ! To install a tdupk file, Select first the car you want to modify, Go to Performance Pack > Import Performance pack and then select the tdupk file you want to install. New data appears. Feel free to modify any of these data to your taste. Go to name editor. Click on Save once. If you see <Ressource not found>, enter your desire car name. Then click on save.

    The School of Modding

    Hey all I know a wiki got opened recently but I'm bringing this thread back And because the wiki is such a great thing, I'm gonna use most of the first post to feed the wiki. I've already wrote a guide for TDU UT. But I would like just to get back to the original point of this thread: sharing our knowledge and hopefully use it to produce new mods. Car modders are gone from here but maybe with this thread we could see new people ? Some threads are unaccessible unfortunately like the gauges. Is it possible to fix the pages please ? @Admin Toby

    I wonder that do you release this game before Kylotonn release TDU 3 ? I know it's hard to describe, but assuming that they release it in 2020/2021 , then there is chance that you finish ATG: Kish before them ?

    As for the 4gb patch. That's a great idea, actually a while back, as an GTR2 player I thought the same thing, used it and left the game with AE86 sitting for a while. It still started to slow down but it took a bit longer to happen.
