    In order for the Muppet Squad™ to help you they need a bit more info from you; what version is it DVD or Steam and what OS are you on?

    Hi, I want to get the unofficial DLC, now I tried to install the Unpacker GUI but it don´t work. It says Error: The folder I specified is not a main TDU2 directory or my game version is not supportet.
    I bought it at Steam.
    What´s wrong? Thanks!

    You can't unpack the original steam-version. But maybe this helps you:

    It's not exactly the answer to your question. But between the lines you should find help. ;)

    So that means I can only install the unofficial DLC if I buy the whole new game as a CD?

    That means you need a retailversion to unpack the game and then install the patch. The steamversion isn't made for unpacking, because it has a different file- and folderstructure. Like Nobby wrote: Buy a cheap dvd-version, borrow it from a friend or download a piratecopy and use your original gamekey from steam. So it is a legit copy of the game. Then unpack it and install the patch. But if i remember right you cannot run the game afterwards via steam anymore. You have to run it only via Universal Launcher.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your help guys! So if I deinstall my old version from Steam and download and install the new retail, do I get back my bought cars? Or are they
    lost?

    Your account is connected to your gamekey, so yeah everything should be like before. (backup your savegame.)

    Hi,
    How do I install the Retail? If i click on the TestDrive2.exe it says CrashHook.dll is missing I should reinstall to fix. I don´t need the keygen cause I have my key from Steam. Have I something to do with these Disc image file? :confused:

    Mount the image for example with DemonTools, then you can install like from DVD/CD.

    Hey guys, can anyone help me out here? This might sound embarrassing, but I've been trying to mod my TDU 2 literally for hours on end now... I unpacked the game and the unpacked version is in a different folder. When I was running Universal Launcher, it was doing fine until I noticed that I was playing the original version of the game the whole time. I tried multiple times to install rims (experimented on the Ferrari 599 with aftermarket OZ rims off the forum) to no avail. I replaced the name of the file and whatever and got nothin... I also tried swapping out the entire model. I deleted the 599's bnk file (made a backup of course) and placed in a Toyota Supra's bnk file renamed as the Ferrari's. I have the Unofficial Patch mod but I can't find the added cars anywhere. Do I need to merge the unpacked folder with the original one?? Someone please help me out. Thanks!

    Might be a silly question from my end, but did you point the Universal Launcher to the right TDU2 folder. You don't need to merge the folders together.

    Yup, the path leads to the original TDU 2 folder and the other path leads directly to Texmod.exe
