  1. OMG XBOX version3 is not due until 2010 (might be brought forward for 2009) depending on microsofts readiness with regards to the completion of they 1st handheld iphone style device which will work alongside the new so called xbox3 which will prob be called something else, as they only called this one the 360 because they didnt want its customers to feel numerically underated when faced with the PS3 CRAZY - cant call it it xbox 2 fellas playstation have a third unit ;LOL anyway if you know anything about this mystery console thats due in 2010 post it here let me read it...
  2. wow sold mine for only £100 went within 10mins of posting it on ebay wasley mate, private sale, emailed me wasnt even any bids 10 ppl watching it and he said if you agree to take it off auction today give you £100cash will pick it up in a few hours, shame it dont work with a 360 would have kept it... sold in 10mins (get it on ebay man)
  3. lol you cant sell megapack cars, but anyway since your so kind i would like one of every car in the game please...
  4. i never buy from trade only sell - use it on a fresh profile to sell 1st car for 1k to get the 10points needed to rank up, after that once unlocked all roads, i then buy all the houses in the order i wish them to store my cars... then because all the single player missions are done i sell every car i own except one of course then rebuy all the cars on the game so that they all fill up my houses in the order i want them in... leaving my fav 10 used cars to last so they all in the one house that i just make sure i finish each gaming session by driving back to that house and saving the game, so it doesnt mess my ordering up... if trade was more fair and didnt buy silly priced cars, it might have been a different story for me and i would under those circumstances probably use the trade function alot more often.... later
  5. wow i always seem to end up with this limited response that im claiming pc gaming is dead/dying... what i mean when i say PC gaming is dying i mean... whats best way to word this ? games developers are putting more and more effort into developing titles and content for the consoles rather than for the PC just lately because its proving to be more cost affective. Which wasnt the case over 5yrs ago when the majority of focus was indeed on the PC rather than the consoles of yester years. and the proof to this would of cause be the latest press release that EA Games are indeed not going to produce any more titles for the PC. as for your response about the graphics companys providing better hardware, they would have to do this even if gaming wasnt an option on a personal computer. as the games are made on a PC. not that i wish to get into another "razor says that pc gaming is dead and hes a idiot" campaign again, but rather make a point that PC gaming is not quite what it use to be. PS - i dont suppose you wanna join my xbox 360 TDU Club then ???
  6. A-Z of test drive unlimited improvements: AI - some things that these pesky things get totally wrong in any computer game is random spawning, when a title just makes a car appear dead front of you when your travelling at 100mph is wrong and a bus falling from the sky and crushing your prize sportscar is also bad. i dont so much think draw distance is so bad within tdu, though many have complained about this, i think the spawning issue is much more a problem BUILDINGS - more buildings are required for example places like eden island, waterfalls, beaches, etc you should be able to stop off a building near these places and pay a fee perhaps to view history on them for example if you stopped of at a waterfall you would watch a flyby video of the area showing its relation to being there in real life so for example in real life oahu you stop at the crater it shows a tourist video about it and then rewards the player for visting it and is then ticked off on xbox achievements list when all places have been visited. just for more interactive club style a picture of that location is added to the clubs gallery and even added to a section in your photo album. CARS - apart from the obvious desire to have more and more, they need to benefit from damage, two options the first being crumple zones, active visual damage, or secondly just some sort of display to show after a big crash etc the cars had it, and you either would lose the car (writeoff) or in the least have to pay to fix it before you can continue driving with it. maybe a FMV showing it being towed then you rejoing the game from a garage after paying the bill ? DLC - cars are not enough here, lots of people have payed for the dlc car packs in test drive unlimited, but i feel that cars are simply not enough, even more so when you see that most of the new dlc cars are simply just revamped versions of the original content for example the 288 GTO looks like 2 of the dlc packages with very minor extra touches. but due to the way tdu is made what more can you add with regards to dlc, well what about roads and features. for example a dlc pack that contains things like carwashes, etc and finally a pack that contains more roads that only appear when you buy the road pack. ENVIROMENT - more interaction is required with a lot of test drive, for example theres so many homes in the game which are we all know just a method for storing the cars, but why not make them more interactive, give each house an ability for example depending on which house your in, you gain an ability ranging from being able to view a different hints/tips tutorial or even something more daring like depending on the price of the house, depends on something like a social status rating, and the more propety you own the higher the rating and access to more hints, etc FUEL - test drive is a lifestyle, you can tell its what the developers had in mind just by watching it much less playing the game, so working fuel tanks and petrol stations are a must in my eyes when you own all the homes and cars and have a 100% completed profile, fuel tanks and purchasing fuel would have a huge impact on crusing events and as ive mentioned before paying to have your car towed in the event of running dry on petrol is a pleasing thought in the least. GARAGES - these need to be worked out much better, we need the ability to transfer cars to parking slots we wish to have them in and then stay there, i want my fav cars in my fav house at all times, i want the g-class cars in my oldest looking house and i want my convertibles in my beach front propertys. i think the most rewarding touch for this subject would be instead of click a button outside an house would be to drive your car into a garage and then click a once parked up (enter home) that way. automatic opening gates/doors as you approach your home. HANDLING - it could be me here but after 1year of playing this title into the ground, and using all of the dlc cars i cant help to notice all to ofter that all the cars seem to handle to same, i agree theres slight differences, but the fundementals are always the same, you press the handbrake button in any car and your safe knowing pretty much how the cars will respond, its needs to be different, even if its just a case that each manufacturer handles different and not so much each and every car. INDICATORS - i know from experience of hosting loads of crusie events and having other players follow me to a location/tuner because they dont yet have it marked on thier maps yets these would be used by everyone, they really are self explantory and would adore to see them added to tdu in some form. JAIL - i like this idea, no money go to jail, but the construction if it could be built much better, for example theres no punishment for being sent there, i mean 30secs of nothing, make players lose they cars or something, i suppose a good thing to use would be force players to sell a house because players need to be left with at least one car. so forcing them to sell they last home to pay the police fine can still work as they will still have a car to race and rebuy a cheap home. its got to have some punishment to it for sure. maybe even send players to a secret level (advanced driving test course) make them complete one of them before allowing them back on the road. KINKS - theres a few kinks in test drive unlimited one of the most annoying for me is theres a delivery mission where 98% of the time for no reason i lose a perfect bonus because the road marks me down as hitting something when i havent, its well annoying and these kinks need ironing out please. im sure im not the only one that hates this mission and good quailty control will only help any title and developer alike and should be taken into account without saying. LIMITS - something has to be done to the max 8player limit per session for any tdu squel, it really is in no way satisfactory for a MOOR racing title, im sure technology limits this in some shape or form, but this said maybe an option based upon users detection of connection speeds can supply a bigger bubble to those who can spare it. at the end of the day maybe a second hidden bubble so that a cruise with 8 players can at least see other online players and chat to them if not lock to them would be a huge welcome to all i think. MODS - i recently started playing NFS Most wanted, now tbh this title isint my thing, im not into arcade racing and boyracing in the slightest, however i just adore being able to assign spoilers and more so custom paint work to my cars. in the case of test drive unlimited, i dont much feel spoilers on most of the cars within the game fit into the scheme of things, but at the very least more alloy options (separte building to buy rims after showroom purchase) and a few sticker packs would be very welcome. if you wanted to do something really cool make a limit of the lenght of a users profile name and make the cars license plate display that. NAVIGATION - the gps needs a slight tweek, the first being the ability to move it to another location on the screen would be nice and secondly for it to be able to be adjusted in real game time, so that when cruise events are taking place players can alter the destination without reverting back to the map screen and that simply is not an option as then all cruise players are required to re-sync back to each other and that simply spoils the entire experience. OBJECTIVES - an more catogerys to the current single player / multi player / exploaration, etc that are required for gaining 100% completion, its the best part of playing test drive unlimited and for most players once these have been obtained the game pretty much becomes a cruise only thing. having more of these can only be a good thing. maybe the point i made in B can be used here. POLICE - the absence of police presence is truly a kill joy, its like sex with rubber. in sinlge player the fact police cars actually hunt you down and activily seek out ways to stop you really makes a offline profile that bit more challenging, and if they responded to the users speeds, and actions would surely make the game more rewarding.. i dont believe adding them to multiplayer races is a step in the right direction, but multiplayer free ride mode is in desperate need of policing. and i would settle for the same police rules as single player on multi-free ride mode chased only for hitting the police. QUES - more city traffic, when you enter the main city part i think it should feel different from being on the open country roads and all of a sudden find yourself in traffic jams etc maybe if possible make it happen at 5pm using the console/pc clock so the traffic is there at rush hour and not during off peak hours that would be so cool and tdu is the perfect game for this. maybe expand it to motorways with roadworks etc. RACES - more racing options would extend the playibilty of test drive unlimited, for example most multiplayer races are simply track based much like all other driving games, but to fit in with the scheme of tdu single player mode they needs to be more cruise based events, perhaps players meet in one of the several hundred car packs until 8-12 players arrive them a random 10min cruise event is choosen and players then compete in a cannonball style race to a set destination which can be obtained by travelling in any direction to an unmarked fnished line (no route planned on gps, just the finish line displayed on the gps, just like a radar is display on speed events) would be a real hit. SOUND - gran turismo, PGR, but to mention a few benefit from real world engine sounds, and much like handling in test drive unlimited the sounds suffers the same fate, all the cars seem to sound for the most part much like the one you raced yesterday. more intense sound would create a much better immersion into your driving habbits forcing players to respond in a much more competive manner. for all car and bike freaks a perfect sounding engine is just as rewarding as buying the car itself. TRADE - big improvements required here, the trade system needs to stop auto buying 10million priced cars and only cars that are purchased should be removed from the list, it needs to display whether the cars tuned, milage, how many owners, a brief description, and most of all the ability to sell a dlc car (copyrighted cars) but only can be sold to those whom have already purchased the relevant carpack in the first place, which would not affect the sale of dlc cars to non payers. USER - more user options, maybe a photo face feature so that i can upload my own face to be used on my ingame character would be good also the official website claimed apparell would be included in dlc and ive not seen any and got loads of clothes tokes left over on my pc account and will be faced with the same issue on my console account shortly. but the icing on the cake for me would to see my face in all of tdus cars, and sat in a 3million house, very nice. VISUALS - has to be included, every addition to a game title just simply needs to be better looking each and every time, the graphics have to be upgraded, the whole nine yards it would be a crime to see tdu2 though the same eyes, its gotta look different and better. i know theres loads of forum banter about location, but just a totally revamped oahu could have the same impact as a new location. WEATHER - tdu is in need of dymanic changing weather, all aspects of this including night/day sun/rain affects/handling because tdu is based upon the same island therefore extra tracks as such arent an option weather is the other road to go down to make each tdu experience different im not so sure snow would be needed, but rain and working windscreen wipers/headlights would really add a touch of spice and atmosphere whilst driving. XTREME MODE - similar to hardcore mode, but instead of achieving the goal of increased feel via a steering wheel, its more based upon increasing the possibility of wheel spin and skid. therefore creating a sorta drifting aid, and supports pads and keyboards as well as the steering wheels. i think this would go down quite well with alot of tdu users. y - still thinking z - still thinking come on folks lets hear your A-Z of improvements or maybe just help me out with X, Y, Z. the rules are they have to be valid points and in A-Z format. make no mistake the last three are hard, the aim of taking part is to see what you want as a tdu player and how realistic you feel about getting it also to try and convince the developers to delay tdu2 until we have what we want ;LMAO i have voted despite it being my wishlist as realistic as possible and what i believe would be a priority for the developers based upon tdu1 and what i think would be possible based upon the fact production of tdu2 is probably for the most part already done which comes in at 34.8% had to post as a new tdu2 thread for the poll purpose - sorry !!!
  7. SURPRISE !!! most of diablos photos contain, well.... a diablo !!!
  8. lol poor guy - i been on the bad end of the stick on forums before, i found that regular sex helps, that and lots of fresh coffee...
  9. well i was missing some dlc cars after paying for them, and redownloading the packs worked for me, try it...
  10. Any car thats red and begins with the letter "F" has "7" letters in the manufacturers name and was designed by some itailian boffin and carrys years of racing pedigree under its hood, is just fine by me... but since your forcing me to pick one, its going to have to be... "288 GTO" i prefer other ferraris better but lets be honest the style of the 288 is simply perfect for oahu it just fits in on the island so much better. amen!!!
  11. well going to have to vote alienware - i just wanna see you suffer with a corrupt tdu experience on your high end over expensive rather nice (jealous, jealous) alienware laptop thingy... ;lol
  12. well i got tdu on xbox now - and it works, someone tell me how on earth they got it so wrong for the pc... i can switch profiles without losing my save game, it doesnt lag, hang, crash or even require a toolkit ;lol the amount of time when i leave the map and transport to a location before the other online players show up makes a high tech pc seem slower than my first kiss, even the dam graphics look the same as with an 8800 GPU which proves it simply was a console conversion. its really surprising just how much they is wrong with it on the pc version, only had one problem with my 360 version, i had to download racing guilds 2 car pack twice because the first time it didnt install the f40 into my game files. well i guess pc gaming is really dying even ea have announced they wont be making any titles for the pc platform anymore. shame nasty developers, tut tut. anyway so now it works, anyone interesting in making a club with me, i need to belong to a club whos members are online everyday, im one hardcore gamer with an average of above 100hrs play per week easy. because i only got xbox and tdu 2days i still havent got all single player stuff sorted yet, dont have many cars, in fact only got ferraris as of yet, but give me 2-3days, will have everything... so club offers come forward and voice yourselfs, i can handle the clubs website and other stuff too, but like i say need dedicated gamers, dont want to be a member of a offline club. later...
  13. tdu2 will arrive soon - i can feel it in my hands already :twisted:
  14. Newsflash... Im not so sure which section to post this into has it kinda involves both PC users and XBOX360 users alike, so im going to post it here for now. as most of my future post's will be in the 360section of the forums... Over the next few days they are going to be a few changes to both, our main website and my gaming habbits. the first set of changes are already set in motion, which is basically.... * Firstly, our main toolkit disturbution website is currently geared up for hosting the TDU-Toolkit and also my previous PC-Based test drive unlimited club. Which no longer runs, since ive moved over to console gaming. This will change in respect to myself joining the XBOX360 version of TDU-Players online as of from tomorrow, so the website will change to run my console based club rather than the current pc based one. So any XBOX360 users looking for a new club to join keep your eyes peeled out for me online, more information will be posted in the relative forum section at a later date. * Secondly at somepoint over the next week or so i will begin moving the main download links from our current domain name to desrats main site as he will be in control of all things toolkit related in the future. this will then allow myself to alter the domain name to something more suited towards my new console based club. Which is being setup in light of the ever nearing release date for TDU2 on the XBOX, which we all know will happen a year before the PC version. I for one is certainly looking forward to racing TDU2 cars safe in the knowledge it will work and the DLC will arrive on time. also this move might make a few more console related programs for the 360 version of the sequel... Anyway for now thats pretty much sums things up... These changes will not affect the TDU FAQ links in anyway other than the new console based club domain name will change, but you will still access the FAQ section from my new club site and hopefully if can get screenies needed from the 360 then i will continue with the ones not yet completed, etc If you got any questions or comments please feel free to post !!! PS - Diablo, i except to be upsetting another mod when my prancing horse flys past your raging bull... :thumbsup:
  15. CLICK the bold writing on the homepage
  16. YEA sorry about that ive retired from gaming (well public gaming) i still play with my friends & single player.... but, as far as games go they more like "partys" now, i attend a party and then forget all about it :)
  17. Im not going to be around much in person for a while, but the updates will be made to this website as promised, i just wont be involved in the forums, the next batch of updates will be later today and then daily for the rest of the week. thankyou for your support people...
  18. long way to go yet !!! when i get off the game based instructions, it should gather speed. man i dont feel very good, huge massive drinking session last night. but got to start updates for tomorrow. i got 3beers in fridge might drink them, should help :) yea and for some strange unknown reason i stuck 6 smileys at the bottom of this post. dont make any sense at all (¼crazy)
  19. TOPIC UPDATES: Diner challenges Making Money (under construction) Free House Forum Help View Modes Player Symbols Game HUD Eden Island Ranking up Instant Challenges ADJUSTMENTS: custom radio stations - information regarding music manager program added that allows users to alter default ingame radio station tracks has been added. no further updates until monday evening, its weekend... so time for drinking and playing and being all relaxed not working my bottom off :)
  20. just use fraps - screenshot macros and film in one key stroke, plus runs on g15 lcd and so for me no dont need the photo mode
  21. im not really waiting for any title, as much as waiting for any title to keep me interested for a very long time. theres only been one game in my life that held my interest for a serious amount of time (6yrs) the only thing and it really is the only thing thats kept me going with tdu is the programs and websites ive made. i cant actually even face tdu to play, my face just goes depressed as soon as i fasten the g25 to the desk ;lol i really dont particularly care what title is the future, i just want the future title to hold my attention. does anyone understand what i mean, or am i just getting to old for gamin ?
  22. well you be surprised how many people didnt know various things, which is what the tutorials are all about. im trying to include every question that could arise, i feel daft sometimes. for instance when i was making the install tdu section, i was thinking christ people are going to think im treating them like kids here. but if its going to cover everything i might as well cover it. and it made a great opening tutorial section :)
