    (DIY HC/Casual+ mode, ffb tweaks) TDU2 physics tweaks

    Release history:
     
    TDU2 Physics Tweak
    Nudge tdu2 overall car handling to your own liking, along with force feedback tweaks 😄
    https://github.com/Kethen/tdu2_physics_tweaks
    Video demo of the example config below, speedometer is in kph (Streamable)
    Video demo of the adjustable steering wheel mode (Streamable), enabled by setting "steering_wheel_mode" to true
    Installation on Windows
    Place dinput8.dll, MinHook.x86.dll, tdu2_physics_tweaks_config.json, dinput8_ffb_tweaks_i686.dll and tdu2_physics_tweaks_i686.asi next to TestDrive2.exe.
    Installation on Linux+WINE
    Copy the file next to TestDrive2.exe following the Windows instruction.
    After that you'd likely also have to declare a dll override before the asi loader as dinput8.dll will be picked up. It can be done in winecfg or with the below environment variable.
    export WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8=n,b" Alternatively, if you are already using dxvk, chances are you have a d3d9.dll override ready to go. Simply install dinput8.dll as d3d9.dll instead.
    Usage
    After installation, edit tdu2_physics_tweaks_config.json to nudge the game closer to your taste.
    Some values can be adjusted while the game is running. Check the in-json string comments for when values are applied.
    The following examples adjusts vanilla cars to feel somewhere between tdu2 and tdu1 hc. Time trials and license tests will become relatively more challenging.
    Controller Example

    Notable options are override_analog_settings, steering_sensitivity, steering_deadzone, steering_wheel_mode, steering_max_angle under the overrides section, as well as the ffb_tweaks section
    TDU2 sadly do not render wheel physics using constant force effect, but with spring and damper effects, basically asking the wheel to do it instead.
    You'd likely need to raise spring gain and adjust damper gain in your wheel's setting software to have better wheel feedback (eg. my g29 on linux, https://github.com/berarma/new-lg4ff driver along with https://github.com/berarma/oversteer gui allows adjusting overall, friction, damper and spring effect gains; Ghub on windows on the other hand seems to not expose any of those settings and Logitech Wheel Helper seems to have stopped working with the newest Ghub)
    Additionally when ffb tweaks are enabled, front wheel slipping feedback is simulated in a best effort manner
    Perhaps one day the game physics engine will be studied enough for re-implementing steering phyiscs entirely

    When log_effects under ffb_tweaks is enabled, effects sent to dinput8 are logged to dinput8_ffb_tweaks_log.txt
    Trouble shooting
    Make sure your edited config is a valid json file and contains all the keys this tool needs.
    Check tdu2_physics_tweaks_log.txt if the game refuses to start/self closes.
    If tdu2_physics_tweaks_log.txt or dinput8_ffb_tweaks_log.txt don't change / don't get created, make sure the directory and the log files are not readonly.
    Building
    On windows, install cygwin, along with mingw64-i686-gcc-core and mingw64-i686-gcc-g++ toolchains, then run build.sh at the project root in cygwin shell.
    On linux, install podman from your package manager then run build_podman.sh.

    TDU savegame account editor

    Features
    Toggle on/offline Edit nickname, email and password Import progress from other saves (playersave files more specifically) ** you are advised to manually back up your saves at %USERPROFILE%/Documents/Test Drive Unlimited/savegame as well in case of unforeseen file corruptions **
    Ghidra, x64dbg, ghex and vbindiff were used to inspect save file serialization, see https://github.com/Kethen/TDU_savegame_account_editor/blob/main/offsets_and_formats.md for a summary.
    iced-rs is used for the user interface, fs_extra is used for recursive file copying, rfd is used for providing a file picker, tar-rs is used for preserving bookmarks.
    tdudec on rust is ported from the source release of tdudec at http://aluigi.altervista.org/papers.htm#others-file.
    .exe for windows (win32 and win64), without for linux (x86_64 glibc).
    Alternatively the project can be built using cargo like other rust projects, it should build in MacOS as well.

    Alternative andraste plugin that allows loading any playersave on any profile: https://github.com/Kethen/tdu_andraste_playersave_validation_skip

    TDU physics tweaks

    Supports only 1.66A exe currently.
    Features
    Adjust global gravity Adjust normal mode additional gravity when a wheel is lifted off the ground Force HC mode physics on player and racing bots in normal mode Besides the exe patcher, this also comes in the form of an andraste modding framework plugin, https://github.com/Kethen/TDU_andraste_physics_tweaks/releases

    By default, when a wheel is lifted off the ground in normal (non hardcore) mode, an extra gravity modifier of 1.0 is added to the vehicle to quickly put the vehicle back onto the ground. The value is statically saved in the exe, and this patcher changes that value by changing an instruction.
    Additionally gravity used by havok and other bits of the game can also be changed from the default of -9.81, which might be useful for hardcore mode.
    0.0 gravity modifier adds no additional gravity, negative values such as -10.0 that overcomes default gravity will send the car upward at curbs and jumps.
    0.0 gravity modifier demo: https://streamable.com/ldur6j
    Ghidra and x64dbg were used to seek out the instruction for patching as well as assembling the new instruction, patching methodology can be found at https://github.com/Kethen/TDU_normal_mode_gravity_changer/blob/main/src/util.rs
    iced-rs is used for the user interface, checksums is used for identifying exe files, rfd is used for providing a file picker.
    .exe for windows (win32 and win64), without for linux (x86_64 glibc).
    Alternatively the project can be built using cargo like other rust projects, it should build in MacOS as well.

    Andraste Magicmap (Ignore Bnk1.map andraste plugin)

    Naturally this requres Andraste Modding Framework

    With this plugin enabled mod packs can skip Bnk1.map modding for loading additional bnks

    Extract the zip and put the directory under Andraste's mod directory, it should look as follow once installed
     
    TestDriveUnlimited.exe Launcher.exe ... mods/05_magicmap/ ├── mod.json └── tdu_andraste_magicmap.dll ...
    Note that this plugin does not patch bnk size limit so right now for huge bnks one would still need project paradise -bigbnk

    Patching methodology can be found at https://github.com/Kethen/tdu_andraste_magicmap/blob/main/tdu_andraste_magicmap/MyClass.cs
