Got the pack and installed it, I have the non-US version of TDU and it runs flawlessly. Backed up the downloaded file, also have the serial key so it should work when I reinstall. Also I don't play TDU online so I have no idea if it works properly online.

Bought the RUF RT12 and the Edonis so far -

Did they fix hardcore mode or allow hardcore mode in challenges? I don't see why you can't even pick up hitchhikers in hardcore mode or do delivery missions.

Nice cars but I'll probably wait with the carpack. By the way, check out this video with a Yamaha R6 driving over a very familiar highway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTFWfJZqzHo

I just checked the forum. There's no patch just cars. You also get new cars in traffic.

Sometimes I play TDU @ 1080p on my TV. Now when I switch back to my monitor and try to run TDU it will crash. Every game in the history of video games just defaults to a safe resolution. This is game programming 101. But Atari/Eden don't feel a need to patch this.

TDU is one of my favorite games but Atari/Eden goes down on my list as the worst support. Even worse than Ubisoft *gasp*. They used to have a bug where if you uninstalled it deleted your autoexc.bat file in your C:.

This is one of my favorite games ever but it could have been so much better with just a few minor fixes. Fix clubs, fix hardcore mode flying cars, fix the roads, allow hc mode in challenges and missions.

Now they want $20 for more cars.

I'll just wait for TDU2 and cross my fingers that they fixed a few problems from TDU.

Is the master server still up for this game? Reason i ask is last I checked I had heard the main server hosted by Atari wasn't up anymore, thus no more online play. I bought this game last year when everyone here and all my clan mates were playing it and had a blast. However I got a lil tired of it after a few months and then the drive where this was installed died and never bothered to re download it.

If the online server is up and running with real people actually playing it I might redownload it. Oh and I paid for the unlimited downloads .../sigh I think it was an extra 5 bucks or some ****.

I have an interesting issue.

I keep getting kicked from the game due to some kind of authentication error

I've asked Atari tech support (who have been most helpful previously) and will hopefully have it resolved.

Before the issue, I was driving the uber Mercedes and the Ruf cars, very nice great handling.

EU car pack out today, now.

Wonder how many sales EU lost due to people buying it from the US Atari?
