So we can keep our beloved Ferrari F430 or Shelby GT500 in the game ! TDU Platinium, TDUCP 2.00, HF Garage and many other community addon car packs are the result of this community effort to get more variety in TDU. Here is a even better and more complete tutorial than the one I've made 4 years ago for adding new cars in TDU. Believe me, it's easy when you get the process in mind and when you understand how it work. Don't be afraid. Time, logic and patience are you best friends. You gonna be able to use different sets of rims and choose many as you like ingame ! Just like the Mercedes CLK 55 AMG. And you can customize your new slots to your own taste like the wheel size, the names of the rims and many more options. About Online: Just to understand how TDU database works. First of, the Database is located in DB.bnk you can find in Atari\Test Drive Unlimited\Euro\Bnk\Database. Inside that BNK file, you have smaller db files for many stuffs. Open one of the smaller .db file (converted with TDUUT, tutorial further bellow) with a Notepad and you get tonnes of numbers. So one line in the TDU_CarPhysicsData.db file = one car. Same story for wheels: one line in TDU_Rims.db = one rim. A line in TDU_CarRims.db = One car and one rim connected together. And not just cars but you get it... TDU reads each values of the line and translate it into something like colors, what 3D car BNK to use, what gauges to use, how much HP, how grippy is the car, etc... Here's bellow how DB.bnk looks like inside when it's open by TDU Modding Tools: A\ Add a line into the database Okay let's take a simple mod I like with 2 different set of wheels, pre-made physics and a sound mod included: The Audi Sport Quattro made by Norby931 a long time ago. The car would normally replace the Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 V6 as indicated by Norby himself. This time we are not replacing the Alfa GT, we gonna copy it and transform it into a dedicated working Audi Sport Quattro. /!\ MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES BEFORE MODDING /!\ The original way to add a car manually is to open TDU_CarPhysicsData.db located inside DB.bnk (Next steps are in the TDUUT guide bellow). Once you've got your TDU_CarPhysicsData.db.hex file and opened it, copy the line in the database from the Alfa GT, go to the bottom of all the code lines and paste your copied Alfa GT. To find the line of the Alfa GT in the database, look for the REF value you can find in TDUF, TDU Modding Tools and TDUPE. Once you've got the number Change the REF value and the Car ID to separate the original Alfa GT line to your newly added Audi Quattro. Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 V6 REF = 63518960 /!\ When changing the REF value, make sure to start from a completely different number from the original Atari line copied. Same for ID, start from value "2040" if your game is stock vanilla. It is extremely important to avoid conflict with the original Atari car. /!\ My REF is 6000000034. Start from 6000000001 (Or any number sequence with 10 digits) to be safe and next time you add a car start, name the REF 6000000012. Make sure 2 numbers are completely different from another existing value in the database. Use the search tool to double check if your new value is unique. And my ID number is 2233. +1 the ID number each time you add a car. (I've already added a few cars since ID 2040) Scroll back up. +1 the items value to make it readable in-game. The items tells the game how many lines (cars, rims...) are in the .db file. SAVE YOUR .db.hex FILE ! Then Go back to TDUUT's guide bellow to insert your edited .db file into the DB.Bnk file. DONE FOR THIS EDITING PART. B\ Add values with the DB Ressources app C\ Edit the copied lines with the newly added ressources D\ Add BNK files into the game with TDUF E\ Add the car into TDU Modding Tools and TDUPE F\ Adjusting the added vehicule Go down bellow to [Adjusting the mod] CONCLUSION AND RESULT TDUUT This part of the tutorial contains: MAINLY Convert .db crypted files into an editable file with a Notepad, + Extras: Moving .db files out and in DB.bnk and rename them. /!\ MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES BEFORE MODDING /!\ INTRODUCTION | WHAT IT DOES ? Convert your db file into an editable hex file. Very useful if you want for exemple to add a new car or wheels (remember: one car or rim = one line) at the end of the database. You can even edit the wheel size. Don't open the TDUUT.exe file, it only works by drag and drop db and .db.hex files. A\ EXTRACT A db FILE FROM THE DB.bnk FILE ? Open TDU Modding Tools 1.16.3 > Close the Vehicule Manager window. > Open File Browser > Click on Database folder (1) > Select DB.Bnk (2). Select your desired file "TDU_CarPhysicsData.db" for example. To select multiple files, Press Ctrl and click on the files you want. (3). Click on "Extract" (4). Create a dedicated folder or select one you like to export your db file (5) and click "OK" (6). It should open a window with all your extracted db files. B\ HOW TO CONVERT A db FILE ? Open the folder where you TDU UT is located. Drag your db file into the TDUUT and let the magic happen. A new file appear as for example "TDU_CarPhysicsData.db.hex". Delete all the original db file. You are not gonna use them anymore unless you corrupt your TDU DB.Bnk and use it as a backup file. You should be able to open your new db.hex file with a notepad and edit it. I strongly recommend you open the file with Notepad + + (Download: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/) C\ HOW TO EDIT THE DATABASE ? [GO UP INTO THE ADDING NEW SLOTS (Old long method) TO FOLLOW THE STEPS OF EDITING THE DATABASE] D\ HOW TO CONVERT AN EDITED db.hex FILE INTO db ? Same as above, just drag and drop your edited db.hex file into TDUUT. You should get a db file named for example TDU_CarPhysicsData.db.hex . To difference all the files, look on the right side the type file where you have "HEX File" (=db.hex) and "Data Base File" (=db file) E\ HOW TO PUT MY NEW EDITED db FILE INTO TDU MODDING TOOLS ? First of, rename your file and delete "db.hex" at the end of the file. No worry, it will not corrupt the file. It's just a few letters and numbers that needs to be deleted to match the original file name you are gonna replace. Drag and drop your new edited db file into the box db files. Or in TDU Modding Tools click on Replace > Keep name then navigate toward your new db file, select it then click on "open". Done TDUF: Adding New Slots (New fast method) INTRODUCTION lalalala /!\ MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES BEFORE MODDING /!\ A\ Add a new slot lalalala B\ Add new wheels Add wheels is certainly easier and faster than adding a car. 1\ Add wheels on a brand new slot 2\ Add wheels on an existing slot Let's practice on a nice set of Saleen S7 wheels made by -=[(ELVIS)]=- . The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo already exist in the game. It's got one set of very simple silver rims in the stock TDU game. Let's add 2 new sets of some nice silver chrome and black wheels ! Open TDUF, Load Database. Click on Settings (2), Profile "Vehicule Slots" (3). [Also known as TDU_CarPhysicsData.db in the DB.Bnk file] Select a desired vehicle you want to add wheels. (4). Select "Wheels" (5). In the list, select one of the wheels that is recommended to replace by the modder (6). In this case, It's the S7T_F_01.bnk. So the REF of the wheel is 1209545995. To find the name of the BNK file and the link to it's REF, click on the arrow (7). Now You get on a different side of the database. [This is TDU_Rims.db in the DB.Bnk file] click on the little "C" (1). This will actually copy the original line and create a new one with it's specific own REF ! Now you need to make your copy unique and make it readable by TDU. You will have to edit the following values by clicking the arrow: Manufacturer (2). It's M if the wheel added is the same manufacturer from the original wheel. O if the wheel added is for a differenet manufacturer. In this case for the S7, I leave it untouch. Name (3) (M) Displayed name (4) (M). That's the name showed in the showroom before you buy the car. Price (5) (M) Spoke (6) (M) Directory (7) (M but can be O). Important this one. Modify it only if you have BBS wheels for exemple and you want to create a BBS foler in Bnk\Vehicules\Rim\. Modify this value tell the game where to search for the wheel Bnk files. So for our S7 wheels, let's leave it on Saleen. M = Mandatory O = Obligatory (8) is gonna be the same process for the front and the rear. Do the Front wheels then the Rear wheels. To finish...

A: You didn't read my guide on camera swapping, or you have swapped the incorrect camera so check back on what you have swapped. Q: When I do an IK swap why does the drivers hands move but the seat belt fix itself? A: If you swap a IK to fix things like driver hands and seat belt sometimes things can change so you would have to play around with IK's till you find one that suits you and does not contain these issues.
  8. I decided to make this tutorial since installing a car is very simple thing once you do it by yourself. People have asked many times from me how to do it. Remember, modding your game might affect to multiplayer functionality. 1. Download SparkIV » This works with v1.0.0.4 2. Use WinRAR software to extract package » Homepage 3. Extract SparkIV directory anywhere you want 4. Open SparkIV 5. Press Browse 6. Scroll down the list and then choose Models » cdimages » Vehicles.img 7. Choose the car you want Sites: » www.gta4mods.com » www.gtainside.com » www.gta-expert.com » www.gta-modding.it » gta-worldmods.t-n-network.de 8. Download it and extract package same way like you did with SparkIV package 9. This might be the best moment to make backup files from the car that you are about to replace. You can do it in SparkIV, simply choose both files (.wtd and .wft), then we’ll choose “Export” function. After that save files to anywhere you want. 10. After backup files, let’s replace them with new ones. Choose “Import” and open both new files. 11. After that press “Save” 12. Close SparkIV. After that you can replace new handling, vehicle and carcols (Car colors) “values” that possibly came with the new car, there always isn't a custom values made for the new car. This isn’t required to do but might give you better experince in the game. 13. Replacing those values is simple and it happens by using notepad. You can find those text files from the game folder » \common\data. However, before opening them, choose all those three text files I mentioned earlier (step 13) and open their properties by right mouse button, then remove read-only check and apply changes. This needs to be done only once. 14. After that you can keep editing those text files. For example, let's edit handling value which is ofcourse located at handling.dat file. 15. Open it and search for the car name that you have replaced with some new car 16. Copy and paste new line from the car readme file. After that save it. Repeat this method with vehicle.ide and carcols.dat DO NOT REMOVE ANY SPACE BETWEEN NUMBERS OR CHARACTERS! DON'T MAKE ANY NEW SPACES EITHER. -- OLD IMAGE REMOVED (imageshack) -- Other useful things: ASI Loader, loads .asi scripts - http://alexander.sannybuilder.com/Files/IVAsiLoader.rar Filecheckfix, this sort of makes game think that you have original files - http://alexander.sannybuilder.com/Files/IV.FileCheckFix.rar ^ Place dsound.dll and filecheckfix.asi to game directory. Hopefully that was helpful guide and you understood my english :lol: Ask if you need any help.
