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.

  4. Hello everyone! It's been a while since we've openly shared anything about TDU World and an update was long overdue, luckily we have lots of good things to show! Over the past few months we have been working long and hard and have overcome quite a few of the biggest obstacles regarding online play. Some people might already know about some of the news since we teased it in our Discord (which you can join here if you haven't already!), but there is some more stuff to talk about... We won't keep you waiting any longer, lets get into it! TDU World got a fresh new logo! First of all, to go with the advancements of the project, we decided on a new and more distinctive logo. The old one was lacking some emotion and it was a bit boring, the new logo is set to change that! It also fits more into the TDU setting by displaying some palm trees. Here it is: *drum ruffle* We are currently updating all social channels to use the new logo, together with a full restyle of the launcher. Stay tuned! And now: The news you've been waiting for... Yup! you guessed it. After a long time of trial and error, we have gotten the first online interactions working! These include the following features: Player logins & lobbying Free roam, including: Car functionality (i.e. lights, horn, windows, exhaust sounds) Chat (including profanity filter) Co-op driving Instant Challenges (PvP Races) Voice chatting Vehicle Liveries (car colour, stickers, etc.) Dealerships & other player rooms (excluding houses) Both islands (Ibiza & O'ahu, Hawaii) Report/Banning system (All User Offenses) Traffic (AI) GPS player count Joining players via the Map All single player content like races and the timed events still works as normal Features currently in the works: Friends & Recent players list (works but not fully) Time & Weather (works but not fully) Further Lobbying, including but not limited to Races (Private and Matchmaking), Casino, etc. The biggest thing is of course the free roam functionality, which is working very well. Car syncing is great and smooth! We've been teasing this for an awful long time, so here's some content (proof if you will ) of the servers working. Some exciting progress as you can see! As much as the team is working hard, it isn't all perfect yet. On that bombshell... We need the community! We're inviting a handful of players to join us with testing the server stability and functionality as well as get a first peek into the TDU World Mod Pack! TDU World Closed Beta Testing In line with the progress we have been making recently, the time has come to recruit some beta testers to ensure everything so far is working correctly! Due to the complexity of the project and the sheer amount of feedback we will receive, the TDU World Community Server Beta will be limited to 20 people. We will be needing members of the community to test the new server, launcher and mod pack and relay data back to us when you find something funky, or plain broken. To participate, we require the following things: Active contribution Be online often during testing Networking Opening ports in your router Using WireShark to log the communication between your game and the server Test Drive Unlimited 2 A legitimate copy, either retail or Steam. Time to play through part of the game Testing the server stability and mod pack additions Testing car class balance English language Speaking and understanding is a must If you check all of these boxes, you can submit an application here (Click "Here") After we've chosen the 20 players out of all submission, we will be contacting them through Discord (be sure to allow personal messages during this time!). Please do not message any members of the team about the beta access or ask for any updates on the situation. We do not yet know when the beta testing will start. When we have selected a date, we will update everyone! TDU World now has a Patreon! We've been constantly asked by the community if we will be accepting donations from avid TDU fans who want to support us, and now we can finally say yes! We have chosen to go with Patreon as our platform to accept donations on. There will be three tiers you can sign up to, outlined below: Tier 1: £5.00 per month - Special "TDU World Fan" Discord title, bonus work-in-progress content Tier 2: £10.00 per month - Special "TDU World Super Fan" Discord title, bonus work-in-progress content, a TDU World sticker! Tier 3: £25.00 per month - Special "TDU World Ultra Fan" Discord title, bonus work-in-progress content, personalized Thank You Letter and a TDU World sticker & TDU World T-Shirt1! 1 - T-Shirts are only available for patrons who have subscribed for 3 consecutive months. The funds raised will mainly be going towards server hosting, because that isn't free unfortunately! They will also be going towards other project fees. We promise to maintain full transparency on the Patreon as to where they money is being used. For those wishing to support us via Patreon, please visit https://www.patreon.com/OfficialTDUWorld. This is the only official way of donating to the project! Remember: Supporting our project is optional! We will never, ever force players to support us, and playing on the servers/using the mod pack will always be free, forever. The TDU World Mod Pack We recently acquired some new members to start work on the TDU World Mod Pack. The goal with this mod pack is to make Test Drive Unlimited 2 feel like a modern game again. This means new music, new textures and perhaps most importantly: an updated car list. The pack will be split up into multiple parts: Cars, Environment, Sound and of course, a Full pack consisting of all parts. Below, we will go over these parts. Cars Considering how the world of automobiles has evolved since the creation of TDU2 and how many different vehicles have broken records and changed the rules, the car classes are getting fully rebalanced to be better suited for the new cars we are introducing. We did this not by nerfing (slowing down) the original cars, but by putting them against cars that really do match them in performance, whether they were cars from the original game or TDU World additions. For example: the Subaru Impreza is not going to make A6 look like a walk in the park any longer. Instead, it will face tougher competition! The cars we will be adding are not just a combination of existing mods, we are also creating new high quality mods ourselves to accompany them. The new mods we are creating mostly consist of recent and brand new models from countries like Britain, Italy and Germany. While the new mods we are creating will be of high quality, we will also be keeping low end systems in mind. Here is a little sneak peek on some of the vehicles that will be added! Environment For the games' graphics, we will be using a combination of existing mods to bring more life into the islands and make them look less dated. For now we have selected mods for roads, foliage and clouds. We will also be tweaking the in game settings to allow for higher quality shadows, and better draw distance for instance. The tweaks we will be doing here are not set in stone yet and requires more research to see the possibilities. Sound We will be replacing the radio stations to feature new songs, and if possible, we might even add new radio stations! Music for the map, start screen etc. will also be changed. Again, these packs are all optional. In the end, we want everyone to be running the same game, so everyone can enjoy the same cars and more importantly: have a balanced online racing experience! There will of course be people who prefer the stock experience and thus, we will not require use of the modpack. We will, however, be sure everyone runs the same balanced database so all cars will be in the correct classes. Looking for a sound designer! For the mod pack, we also want to overhaul some of the car sounds in the game. These are kind of lacking and remove some of the immersion while driving. The thing is, we currently do not have a member in our team who is able to create high quality sound mods for cars. Therefore, we give the community a chance to apply! Do you think you can create high quality sound mods for the cars in TDU2? We would like to get in touch! ----- We hope we supplied everyone with enough news! This was it for now, we hope to share more news soon, so stay tuned! Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting and following this amazing and huge project! Best regards, The TDU World Team

    Coconut island Foreword: If you see players mysteriously fly to a blank island during a cruise, chances are they have this mod. WARNING: DO NOT Use these new roads if you have a penalty meter: Car delivery missions will fail if you use these new roads! I know its tempting to use this as a shortcut, but stick to original tdu roads for now. Summery: This mod replaces an empty island off the coast on the east side of Oahu. This mod adds a new racetrack(Not based in RL) Complete with rumble strips, starting-line, Pole position. This map is a bit smaller than Surfer's island but much more detailed, and more convenient as you can drive there via two bridges. Known Issues Shadows, Yep... they still flicker like crazy, one day ill crack this problem Landscape messed up: very occasionally the landscape messes up, spilling onto the road, Remapping (Going to map mode spawn somewhere else then spawning back again)fixes the problem TDU road ruined: Unfortunately a tiny tiny part of TDU road had to be replaced to make the new bridge work. The area before was really nothing special, you wont miss anything. Map Half missing: The map is a little bugged when you look at from map view, but its fine. Installation: Warning: this will replace your world-map(The map in Map-mode), If you don't want to replace the world map remove Hawaii.bnk from the .RAR Extract files over Test Drive Unlimited directory files. It should replace 8-5.bnk, 8-5-1-2.bnk, 8-5-1-3.bnk 8-5-2-2.bnk, 8-5-3-1.bnk And that's that!

  13. Well, I don't want to make big proclaims, but there is a very good possibility that I solved the issue. Today, after work, I did some more test. A 25 minutes run with the GT86, a car that never presented any problem before. And, after 25 minutes of gameplay, the RAM usage of the game was around 400 mb. No problems whatsoever. Then I did a second test. I rebooted the game, and switched to the Skyline R32. The first 10 minutes of gameplay went on smooth, with the RAM usage around 300-400 mb. But then, suddenly, the game started eating RAM. 100 mb every 2 minutes, till it reached around 1 GB of total usage at the 25 minutes mark. And then the FPS tanked. Just like yesterday. The GPu went to 99% of total usage to 20%. Then my brain started to working. What if the executable can't use more than 1 GB of RAM? That would explain the drop, since the lock on RAM usage would bottleneck the GPU, getting it to perform only 20% of its power. So I used the legendary (in the rFactor community, at leat) "4 GB Patch". A patch that modify any executable to work without RAM restrictions. And it worked. The patch did not comprimised the executable, and I was able to play for an hour straight with my R32, even surpassing that 1 GB mark, and then switching to the AE86 Trueno. No problems, no FPS drops, no nothing. And the game even start being less "hungry" for RAM when it surpass the 1 GB mark, assesting itself around 1.2/1.4 GB of total RAM usage. Someone should give me a little medal for all this testing... About the "4 GB Patch", you should be able to find it youself on the net. If not, I ask permission to an administrator to post it in this thread, since it could be usefull to more people, and would increment the amount of testing on it, to see if it actually work flawlessly, or my 1 hr run without problems was just dumb luck.

    This mod replaces the northern secret island (known as unfinished island) with a new island. This new island is a drivers paradise with banked tarmac roads and dirt rallying tracks. Its a real blast to drive(especially with Surfin' USA on the radio) and i hope everyone will be as delighted as me and my friend. Problems: Flying guardrails, couldn't change PMIs so they will have to remain here for now. Road Texture, the roads only use R_C_00.2db. I know that the roads use multiple textures but didn't get round to it. Installation: Extract to your TDU1 directory (same location of Euro file) Let it overwrite Area -1-1 contents. How to get there: Bookmark coordinates: Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\BEight\bookmark\bookmark.txt "Surf Island" 100 10162.41 34.09 8955.99 0.862 0.007 0.508 427894457 100 = Bookmark number and image, Just make sure you don't have another bookmark called this.

    Hey guys, It's been a long time ago since i was here. Unfortunately i didn't finished my last projects as you know for sure, maybe because i've done a lot of mods and i was kinda get bored of it, also get other things in my life to do at that time and i just began to forget about TDU. Of course i don't make mods anymore, but i saw TDU Platinum project in the days and i got the feel to play TDU a bit again. I just wanted to say "hi" again to the old good TDU community here, and apologize for my disappear without any words, i mean im sure there was at least a few people who may waited for the w.i.p projects. I want to give a huge thanks for everyone who use(d) and enjoy(ed) my mods, since i got a lot of positive feedbacks, what i really appreciate. Anyway, have fun everyone, maybe we will see each other sometime on the old little island... Cheers, Norby931

  17. The swinsuit is unfinished stuff from Atari. Sadly, when you make the normal clothes being accessible on bikes, you also have access to unfinished stuff. Also, yeah, this whole process of modding TDU started in August 2016. Lol Also, i am glad, really glad that you guys are enjoying it. This is what keeps me motivated to keep working on it, trying to make it even better.

  21. Well, from where do i even start? I guess the beggining. So, i will adress a few things, so you can understand it better. Back in 2016, i learned how to modify my own TDU game, learned how to add new cars, without replace an existing one. Replacing existing cars has been the way to moify TDU since 2008 if not earlier. But around 2015 people started to figure out a way to add a new entry. So, there was me, happilly adding new cars, untill i've come across a problem, while playing multiplayer, other people couldn't see my cars. That is when i decided to make a "car pack", which then became to be Ultra Community Pack. TDU Platinum is basically Ultra Community Pack update v1.05. So, to clarify, TDU Platinum doesn't have a team of people, it is basically a 1-person's work. I would be selfish to take full credit, because the mods i used were all mae by other people, for years and uploaded for public download. I did a few things myself, as i know how to edit textures, weather and the game database. But cars, sounds... that's not under my knowledge abilities. Everything was downloaded and added into the game in the best way i could find. With that in mind, let's start to address the points/suggestions you made. 1-> 1.1 - The vehicle tachometer and speedometer, the 3D one, is set up in a software, called zmodeler. The modder who makes the car mod is responsible for such setup. The only way to fix this issue, is unlock the mod file, using HEX Editor (Keep in mind that this is not really well seen by TDU Modding Community) and edit it. All this, of course, if you know how to properlly set a tachometer/speedometer in a TDU car mod. 1.2 - Like i said, everything was downloaded. 99% of car mods don't have a sound mod, or a gauge mod for them, because to make them, it is required different skills. Usually, a car modder can't make a sound mod or a gauge mod, and a sound modder can't make a car, you get the point. So, unless they talk with each other to release a "full mod kit", that contains car, gauge and sound, you're pretty much on your own. I actually know how to make gauge mods, but if i make them for every car, TDU Platinum would take not 3 years, but at least double the time. Because it ain't as easy as it sounds. 1.3 - Same issue with the Tachometer and speedometer. That is set on zmodeler, in the car mod file. To fix it, you need to unlock the file. 1.4 - Same as 1.3. Zmodeler limited. The position of the driver is set on zmodeler. 1.4 (2) - Not every car is on zeperfs, plus, some cars have ficticious power and acceleration, because they are upgraded versions that i added for better gameplay, such as D-Class Supra upgrades. TDU doesn't have a drag strip so i could measure 1/4 mile times of all the 880 vehicles. Plus, you're the first one to actually mention the need of accurate 1/4 times, specially because they have no influence on how a car performs in-game at all. It's just a data value to be displayed. 1.5 and 1.6 - TDU Platinum physics were devoleped in Hardcore mode. For some unknown reason, some cars do not perform the same when in normal mode. So, for any judging on how a car performs, please play on hardcore mode. But a further explanation. TDU doesn't really work well. You have a "general" grip value, a general acceleration value. Some RWD cars, like the LaFerrari, have a higher acceleration value to match it's 0-60 time. I could increase the grip value, and it would have basically the same result, although, the car would have blistering performance on the corners, due the huge grip. It's an old arcade game, compromises have to be made. 1.7 - I know the sound is a very important aspect of the pleasure of a driving game! But again, as said, these are mods, that require people to make them. I would love to have every single car sounding perfectly accurate, sadly, modders can't go and record real car samples. In fact, only a few modders actually still make TDU sound mods, because guess what? It ain't that easy. 1.8 - I didn't allowed the 3 "top cars" (P1, LaFerrari and 918) to be tuned because they are too good already. And cars that can reach over 400km/h in stock form also can't be tuned. But whatever. Maybe i will change that. 1.9 - I would like that too, unfortunatelly, it's impossible at the moment. Game was never meant to have such feature. 1.10 - I kinda disagree, but feel free to change it yourself. I provided the tool you need to edit it. It's called TDUF. 1.11 - Again, TDU Platinum was made in Hardcore mode, to really experience it's physics, please do drive there, and at least have some sort of throttle control, so, i don't recommend keyboard playing. And again, personal taste, i tried to make the cars as they are, not to fit a person's preference. 1.12 - It's literally impossible to have the "smoke" anywhere else but on start-up. That's how the game was coded. And about the car RPM dropping slowly, keep in mind these cars are all mods, done by different people. So, compromises have to be made in order to get them at least driving well. 1.13 - Zmodeler issue. To fix it, you need to unlock the mod files aswell. Can't be done. 1.14 - That's because the sound mod requires it. It takes longer because it has a longer start up sound. 1.15 - Impossible to have such feature, as game never meant to have it. 1.16 - 880 is not enough? 1.17 - Sadly, bike mods are a rare thing in TDU. The ones that there is, are kinda low quality and not worth adding. 2 --> 2.1 - I kept the original traffic, because traffic mods are a huge factor in FPS drop. Since i wanted the game to run as light as possible, no traffic mods. 2.2 - Nobody so far managed to successfully add a new traffic car, because how they are coded. 2.3 - Impossible to have such feature, as traffic control is encrypted af and nobody really understands how they work. 2.4 - Frequency can sort of be controlled, but again, not in-game, since the file is encrypted, you gotta edit it via notepad, with the game closed. 2.5 - Impossible to change how the traffic behaves. Their path is encoded in the game core. But if you drive behind them, usually they leave their lane if they can. (they won't leave if they are overtaking or being overtaken) 3--> 3.1 - I would like to see that too, but TDU map modding has just started with BEight. Nobody before him could really mod TDU map like that. And i already asked him about making the Airport as asphalt, and he told me that's not possible, because how the sectors work. 3.2 - Same reason of the Airport. You can't increase the amount of asphalt on a given sector. You can change it's place, but to create something new, you gotta remove from somewhere else. 3.3 - Sadly, that can't be changed either. As it's coded into the game. 4--> 4.1 - Impossible to do that, as i don't think the game really measures it, plus, chronopack is a feature hard coded in the game. 4.2 - Impossible to do that aswell, same reason as 4.1 4.3 - You can actually change the songs. Press R, and then the button you assigned for left-right in the menus. Tap once, and it changes the radio, tap twice, and it changes the song. More radios is not possible, but you can create 4 new radios per profile. They are the User radio. TDU has a limit of songs per radio, hard coded limit. And there isn't a way to make them work different as they already do. 4.4 - Impossible to have such thing. Plus, TDU is about driving, go explore and memorize. It won't take that long. 4.5 - Why not? Maybe because it's also impossible to have it? 4.6 - Also impossible to do such thing. 5--> 5.1 - I don't think so. I did that on porpouse. I want people to go play, explore and find the cars themselves. TDU itself never listed the 350Z Nismo, neither the Saleen S281. So, i want to preserve the "surprise effect" of the game. So, forget about it. 5.2 - Sadly, people will modify it regardless. Plus, i want modders to be able to work on the game aswell, so they can work on new projects and what-not. So, tools are required. About Project Paradise, nothing can be done. Speeder and Lean are nowhere to be found, and only them can actually work on TDU servers. But Frank Maestre, TDU's lead guy on multiplayer already said, many features require a separated server to run, which he is not willing to give the code, like he gave the free roam server code to Speeder and Lean. So, Project Paradise will remain as it is. Turboduck is an old forum, that has changed platform quite a lot. Modders erased their download links, or they simply expired. We are a small team of 4 or so people that have a lot to do with our lives, and check every single topic will demand a lot of time. But, now, to finish it up, i will say what i think. I think you were quite pedantic on your post. I know, good intention, but the fact that you haven't even considered that if it was possible, it would have been done kinda upsets me. TDU Platinum is a mod that took me 3 years to make, i did what i could, and you paid nothing for, yet, you come here and post a really long list of wishes and desires without even consider the possibility of something not being possible to be done, otherwise it would have been made. Feels ungrateful, despite of what you said at the beggining.

    TDU2: Unofficial Patch

    View File TDU2: Unofficial Patch TDU2: Unofficial Patch v0.4.1 July 01, 2021 The main goal of this project was to track down and fix many little bugs that were missed by the developers. As the time went by we started adding our own custom content. The patch grew bigger and bigger to the point that UP started to look more like a modpack than a small patch. TDU2: UP fixes a lot of car's specific bugs - like Lotus Evora gear ratios, Audi Q7 collapsing into tarmac etc. To preserve vanilla driving feeling and performance my changes to the car's physics were done very conservatively. This mod provides easy access to vehicles (through dealerships) which were removed from the final game. The first release of the patch restored to the game all deleted cars (for example Nissan 370z Nismo and HotRod). Future releases provided cars made by our talented modders. All new vehicles have improved physics and balanced performance - player without UP would still have a chance of winning in multiplayer race using only official vehicles from the same segment - do not worry. I have spent hundreds of hours preparing this mod. If you want to express your gratitude for my hard work you are welcome to donate.

If you don't want our mod cars turn into Miami's Mustangs DO NOT run TDU2 without Unofficial Patch. Never ever. If you have to run the game without TDU2UP at least backup your savegame! Since the version 0.4.1 you are no longer required to unpack the game in order to install the Unofficial Patch. Just install the mod to your regular TDU2 directory and play - simple like that! If you are online player please remember to install TDUW Online mod AFTER Unofficial Patch.

    Replace files in folder Test Drive Unlimited Daydream\Euro\Bnk. For correct operation, you need a Fix Map in TDUMT! My "Real Water Mod" is already attached! In this archive, these files have a different size from the original. The registry checks this and will not start the game until this error is fixed. To do this, you need the Magic MAP Tool. The easiest way to use it is to download TDUMT 1.10.2 or 1.13 and there press MAP Tool -> Fix All

  35. 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) 2013 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan / Taurus (Police1)

  37. 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 FOR TDU'S GENERAL MODDING AND THE BEST MODDING TOOL: TDUF https://github.com/djey47/tdu-cp/wiki/Modding-FAQ https://github.com/djey47/tdu-cp/wiki 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.

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. Alternative, download and install the community mega-mod 'TDU Platinum' and make use of the included '4GB patch' which as a side-effect bypasses the SecuROM check. Recommended settings for Project Paradise Launcher Make sure Vsync and Big .bnk are checked. It is necessary to prevent serious in-game bugs. For example, invisible collisions and erratic traffic bugs, or the game not loading properly. In the case of TDU Platinum, make sure FX Tweak is set to OFF. This ensures the lighting displays properly. Don't make the mistake of setting it to on and then thinking you need a weather mod to fix things. Also it is recommended to have Windowed and Unlock Settings (Windowed) checked and to run the game in borderless windowed mode via the Borderless Gaming app. This allows for alt-tabbing without potentially crashing the game. 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 'moon gravity'. You can drive into certain plants/gardens at high speed to jump over various fences. Or you wheelie a motorcycle 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 sell-able. Official Walkthrough Videos Issues and Troubleshooting 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+SHIFT+ESCAPE to bring up your Windows Task Manager. 4. Click the tab 'Details' 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. Anti-aliasing is not working properly, or lowers the framerate Try forcing it in Nvidia control panel if its not working in-game. Borderless Gaming might cause this issue. Also, its been said that forcing AA in Nvidia control may have better quality and use less resources than in-game AA, particuarly in the case of older games. Another option is to use the tdu reshade and use its AA setting as well. 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 You can use a VPN to bypass the Connecting to TestDrive server screen. Once it loads to main menu, you can exit and remove the VPN then boot the game again.

  39. Hopefully this patch will help with maintaining game stability. 1gb RAM limit is a serious bottleneck with all mods installed (even without considering fairly optimized cars). I remember not using HDU patch in the past because of crashes - might be linked to this issue ?! Thanks to @Mondodimotori for the time spent on investigation and solution And of course thanks @Milli for bringing new fellows down here !!

At the beggining of car modding in 2008, I could not imagine the game would bear and receive such improvements. That's a tribute to this fantastic game, for its 11th birthday. The effort in reverse enginneering the game had a price, now time is for a reward for everyone involved and enthusiasts. Such an epic adventure!

  43. Today, we got the announcement that TDU3, or better said, Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown is actually a thing. It's not a rumor anymore! TDU is back on the field! It was announced today, at Nacon Connection livestream, their first live event they did, it featured a couple of games they are working on, but really, what we all have been waiting for was some news for TDU3. And we got it in a form of a teaser and information presented by Alain Jarniou, Creative Director at KT Racing Studio and a former TDU1 and TDU2 dev. Anyways, enough talk, here are the videos: This is the whole presentation of TDU Solar Crown. So, are you excited? Let us know about your opinions, ideas, discussions and give a go at guessing the cars that appear in the video, here in this thread. All i know is that i'm loving that Lamborghini Diablo!

  45. People modding right here do their best regarding the free time they get. That could be even better, but hey already better than nothing. I would never expect this game could be as easily modded/moddable as GTA for example. Some games have a bright modding future, some haven't such, there are lots of reasons for that. At the end of the day, instead of complaining about others not doing enough given the game potential, some people should be more helpful and start contributing. It's never to late....

  47. Today i've learned something cool. I've decided to take a look at the vehicle delivery missions, since i was working on Enzo. As a result, trying to understand how it works out and to fix some errors that occurred with them with my extensive modding process, i've learned a way to entirely change the car of the mission. That works not only with delivery missions, but also Top Models and prize cars. Here is some images of the testing. This delivery mission was a Miura before, but i've managed to tell the game to use the 918 instead. So, expect changes on that part aswell in TDU Platinum, i will make sure that new added vehicles are required to be bought or delivered to get 100% of the game completion. Ah, forgot to mention, i've also made TDU reach 100% again. So, even though you don't complete the multiplayer challenges, you can still get 100%, instead of 88%, like before. ;)
