  1. hopefully someone will better reply, maybe problem is that "you have not forwarded port 8889 on your router, or not enabled DMZ on router for your LAN PC. You need to search in your router device settings or your router name and port forwarding on search engines." There are also other port numbers, but i am not sure why so many and if others than one i have mentioned adds any benefits. Btw. if this does not help, it can help to connect via proxy - using VPN which allows port forwarding (not all support it).
  2. TDU1 Platinum pack - no fog patch - remove fog - v2.zip View File My TDU1 Platinum pack has a weather mod by DarkAvengerGirl Here is where i have folder with the mod configuration files: C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\FX Inside are files: Weather.ini Weather_HDRI.ini (i think that the file depends on your graphics mode set - HDR or normal) change all following variables values: FOGSTART FOGEND FOGMAX to become like this: FOGSTART = 0.00000 FOGEND = 12500.00000 FOGMAX = 0.00000 or use the files from attached .zip archive to replace original files in mentioned directory (make a backup before replacing). Result: you should no longer see the fog in the game and see more sunlight Submitter postcd Submitted 07/20/2021 Category Environment

  4. You have not mentioned where you are stuck, so no targeted reply. Install game, download platinum and copy its files over, install project paradise some details ISSUE: Hi, car is not visible/is invisible or game crashing repeatedly after switching to such a car - i do not know the reason (anyone?), but to get back to the previous working state of the game, you can restore file C:\Users\YOU\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\YOURNICKNAME\playersave\savegame (or playersave?) if you do not have backup, then i do not know the solution, maybe playing with the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Vehicules or creating new profile after backing up existing. Can anyone tell possible reasons and other things to try? In my case most of the Zonda cars in the showroom are invisible, except Huayra and 12 S.
  5. i have found this: as said, maybe more simple than edit is to "swap the .btrq file in ... BNK with another .btrq from Saleen S7 for example". i think in Controls/Options/Gearbox set to Manual and disable Auto-clutch, on Driving tab set Clutch (Car) to some key/button. On Xbox pad i have tried left stick down, it is doable, does not seem faster than auto-clutch when considering also occasional engine stall/stop due to low RPM i think.. but after i set it to Y button it took me a few hours and i can say that manual clutch means faster gear shifting (faster driving) in manual gearbox cars (automatic ones works even without clutch button) and also means a bit more enjoyable drive as a result. I only not yet learned how to use handbrake and the clutch button, because without it, engine stall during handbrake. Which button/stick/trigger you are using for clutch/steering/HB if having Xbox pad?
  6. Hi, when some keyboard keys stop working in the game (happens from time to time, for example T key to type, instead only kind of "forbidden" or unsasigned? sound is played. I think that not all keys stop working, but i can even not quit the game thanks to this issue. What is the work around for this without killing the game Ctrl+Alt+Del please?
  7. "please wait" dark screen was caused by program not allowed in firewall, deleting and again adding it in firewall and making sure internet is on, worked. this will likely not help: Go to testdriveunlimited.exe properties -> select compatibility tab -> change settings for all users -> change high dpi settings -> check both "Use this setting to fix scaling problems for this program instead of the one in Settings" and "Override high DPI scaling behavior" and set Scaling performed by "Application". Way to debug what is causing this is to first start with blank game, then add patch, test again, try car pack or your custom profile, try launchign game again, then try to apply projectparadise, test again. so you know where the issue started. I have not seen such message and i hardly believe the game is trying to connect the internet. Looks suspicious. Use official game, and platinum pack downloaded from official source. Installation tutorial that worked for me is there.
  8. Hi, anyone knows how to fix the issue where the TDUF modified car is hitting the rev limitter without me pushing the gas pedal? This usually happen when i start the car in neutral position using gas pedal. I release gas immediately, but even the car is in gear it is not moving and hitting the rev limiter. After some seconds it start working. I do not think that it happen always, or sometimes it takes significantly less time. UPDATE: when i apply just small power (gas) at car start, the issue is prevented.. yet if anyone knows what may be causing this? -------- How to discover which car is stored in mini.json export (patch) file (in order to backup original before importing)? Search for: CAR_PHYSICS_DATA and below the first line is ref value and when searching this value in TDUF (there is "REF" button), it is likely that it will jump to the right car?
  9. Some feedback regarding game installation issues (game not launching, missing d3d) and how it was fixed: After installing TDU1, applying 1.66A patch, game complains about SECUROM. After applying n0-dvd patch exe, the game does not start (the small game window with black background appear for a second). After i apply ProjectParadise d3d9.dll to the game direcory, and launch PP exe, it can not find d3dx9_43.dll After i download and run DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) (directx_Jun2010_redist.exe) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 it extracted files and i run extracted DXSETUP.exe file, it install DX update. Win.+R; dxdiag; continue to show that i am running DirectX 11. THen i install graphics card drivers using SDIO (Snappy Driver Instraller Origin) and reboot. Game started launching through paradise launcher. (maybe DX update not did it, maybe graphics drivers & reboot) In order to use my existing TDU profile backup folder, i have not known where it belongs so i created new profile in game, not ticking GameSpy and quit game. Now copied my profile backups - "MyGameNickname" folder and ProfileList.dat file to C:\Users\me\Documents\Test Drive Unlimited\savegame\ and launch the game again. Following all tutorials/readme's in Platinum and PP pack, installing graphics drivers and reboot, game is working
  10. there is a "default car" (some call it a hot dog - orange yellow colors) which appears when other driver is using custom car model that you do not have, also maybe sometimes when they are not using Platinum pack but other car pack. Btw. here is a tutorial for TDUF how to export car/physics for sharing with other player.
  11. TUTORIAL: First steps in TDUF software, how to export car modification to a file ( file can be shared with others who can then import it in their DB using TDUF tool by @Djey ) Select database: Then click "Load" and select TDU folder: Select car you want to export to a file: Click "Select" to confirm car selection and "Use all" to export all the car data: I can use this export file (patch) to later import it and overwrite car data in database. Sharing performance/tuning of the car with others or to revert my modifications to the previous state.
  12. I was checking the wiki and unable to find the instruction on how to tune car power parameters and the transmission ratios. So far i know this: In TDUF backup and then load the C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\DataBase and find the car. GRIP: Tuning tab: coef_grip: increasing this value car will have more grip and less wheel spin POWER PARAMETERS: Tuning tab, click tuning pack, right arrow icon, "Pack 3" tab (if you have level 3 tuned car), right arrow icon next to AFTER_MARKET_PACKS Increase power_ratio There is also Speed_ratio and Acceleration_ratio ratio, not sure how these differ from power ratio. There are also more parameters like: coef_accel (Tuning tab) Regarding transmission ratios (gear XY ratio, Final ratio), i tried to play with it but the result is confusing. For example i would like to widen it because car got more power.. Thank you
    So nice, nothing much to improve. It is a matter of personal preference, in my case i would like less slow (G,F class) cars and more cars that goes beyond 400km/h mark when tuned, ideally cars for cornering (GTR). Thank you
  13. can this be related to d3d file that is part of project paradise or platinum package? Related to directx (improper version?) or graphic driver not installed/PC rebooted? Check also game with user profile removed and check this tutorial.
