    Default Until Further notice i won't be playing TDU

    My game has recently started stuttering between 3 to 5 mins after i start the game now. I don't know whats causing it but the stuttering makes the game unplayable & has caused it to lock up my PC a few times. Until i or someone else figures out what is wrong i wont be playing TDU.

    Oh & don't say delete the Radial.cdb because i have before & dont have a Radial.cdb file now.

    Sure that you're looking in the Vista location and also showing hidden files? (Honeslty, I'm not patronising, trying to solve it)

    I looked in the exact spot where the radial.cdb should be & all i could find was, Buddycache.dat, cdkey.txt & addon.txt

    hmm i think i know what this is and no its not the radial.cdb file my TDU doesnt make one either.

    Have you tried a reinstall?
    Check that your computer isnt full of dust & if it is try getting rid of it in a way which will not create static.
    Make sure all plugs inside your computer are connected properly.

    From what I can tell it could possibly be your PSU slowly dieing.

    Took a screenshot of Speedfan running hope that helps. Also my card is a Nvidia 7600GS



    *EDIT* Just downloaded latest version of Speedfan which now has GPU temp at idle.

    Here is one little thing you shoudl try since your on vista
    insted of double clicking game run it as a admin because when i dont run as admin it lags my game out and my comp crash dumps but now i do the RAA and it works perfect. You should give that ago..

    If you have already tried im not sure dude Soz.

    EDIT : Just noticed that your card is only a 256MB that could also be causing problems because the specs are low i have 2x 8800GT and mine are perfect and there both 1GB each if you would like to spend 60 quid on a gig 8600gt lemmi no.

    Remember to find the radial.cdb, you have to show Hidden system files as well as normal hidden files.

    I highly doubt that anyone's TDU just 'doesn't make one'...

    If you can't find the Radial by yourself, have you tried TDU-Fix? Works very well.

    that idle temp is too high for a mid range card you shouldnt be seeing temps of over 54 degrees at idle mate

    Just delete the whole folder. It'll ask for cd key again next time you play, but that's fine.

    256mb isn't low at all for this game. I can play at 1680x1050, full details and AA AF with a 256mb card. And £60 is an absolute joke for a card as bad as the 8600GT. 1gb of mem on a video card is just a marketing con.

    I agree this seems a bit high. Stuttering can be a symptom of throttling back to avoid overheating. Open up the PC, clean out all the dust, check connections are secure etc. Then do a full cleanout/reinstall of your drivers.

    I did clean of out my PC the otherday when i opened it up to install the extra gig of ram.

    *EDIT* I'm running my PC with the side off at the moment & thats cooled the GPU to 53,54 degrees. But this cant be a permanent fix.

    OK i ran that radial fixer that MB linked to & bizarrely it found a Radial.cbd file that was about 10mb's. My game seems to be running fine for now. Although this still doesn't explain why my graphics card is running so hot.

    What GFX card are you using and whats your idle temp. I would look at the image attachment but I can't open it in firefox.

    A bit OT, sorry Shadow. I downloaded Speedfan just to check, didn't think anything would show... Now what value are you supposed to be looking at? Speedfan spat these numbers out:
