    Unfortunately, we were not given an exact release date, but the patch is now at its final testing stages. The patch will be a zip file that contains the following:

    -build notes
    -the patch itself (approx. 20-30 MB)
    -two new cars (Audi RS4 and Nissan Skyline R34)

    When it is released, it will be available for download on the TDU community website.

    Players will also be notified in-game when the patch becomes available.

    This is all the information I have at this time. I know our community is becoming weary (and you folks have every right to be), but try to remain patient. It's almost done.

    As a special exclusive gift to all PC players, two brand new cars will be included with the patch completely free; the Audi RS4 and Nissan Skyline R34.

    Main fixes of the patch are as follows:

    · Corrupted saved games (previously lost save games cannot be restored)

    · Freezing / crashes (at saving points and other specific places in the game)

    · Some performance issues (low fps, stuttering fps, micro freezes)

    · Anti-cheats system improved

    · Audio bugs

    · Other miscellaneous issues

    Regarding Nvidia card issues, Nvidia has addressed this for some of its cards with driver updates. Eden and Atari are still working closely with Nvidia to solve the remaining issues.

    Thank you for playing Test Drive Unlimited.

    UPDATE: 4th May 2007

    Mattlab the Digital Downloads and E-Commerce Producer posted this in the US boards early today.

    Also in case anyone was wondering... The same patch should theoretically work for both the Retail version and the Box Product version of the game. Rest assured we are throughly testing this out to confirm but this is preliminary news that I wanted to share.

    Lastly once the patch is out it will be posted on http://www.atarisupport.com

    Regards,
    Matt
    Please don't hound for a date, just know that it is being worked on and that they have noted many issues and problems and are intent on fixing them.

    * Performance optimization

    * In-game exploits

    The patch will undergo thorough testing at Eden and Atari prior to release to ensure the quality. Further information will be available in due course. Thank you for playing Test Drive Unlimited.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Glad to hear they're going to edit the video optimization. It's pretty basic, just select Low - Medium - High graphics. Ain't the best for people with not the best graphics cards to put everything on low, thanks for the update Diablo.

    May has 31 days, it's never going to be right at the start, give them time.

    I haven't had any problems yet. Hope they make a DLC for PC too in a short time.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    The new Nvidia drivers do not speed up the game so now it's left up to the patch.

    I did a test with 640x480 all low settings, new drivers, no HDR with the 8800GTS and still got 2 FPS spikes in different parts around the Island.

    The patch had better make it a lot better optimized.
