    Thumbs down Im in a pickle...

    Can anyone help me?

    When i load up the game, it loads up ok, then tells me im selecting a profile. On screen it says 'A new version of Test Drive Unlimited is available for download, to continue playing online, you must install this update'. Then it redirects me to another website (testdriveunlimited.com) and so i downloaded the patch, but that didnt get the problem away!?

    Does anyone have any suggestions or can anyone help me?

    Do never patch the game while it is running. Me thinks..
    Uninstall/Reinstall
    Patch
    Start game

    Uh, that happens with Illegal copies.

    But if your adamant that your copy is legal. Google for the TDU Reg Keys (I'm not going to google for you, as if it is an illegal copy you have. I will not be liable for giving you direct links)

    i dont think its an illegal copy, it worked fine originally, but then i downloaded the patch, and it worked OK, although through the middle of it, it said about'cannot extarct TDU' and i just skipped it. I dont know whether thats a problem or not!

    Thanks for your help so far, i tried phoning atari, but that didnt work, they were shut!

    You don't know if you have an illegal copy? And yes, you do have to extract it for it to work.

    did you buy it in a TDU case, from a shop or the internet, or did you download it/get it on a copied disk?

    if you DL'd and paid off the Atari website it's legal.

    i'm happy with it!
