    There was a leak of a test patch recently that if you should find you should not install it, I repeat NOT INSTALL IT as it will not allow you to connect online and it is not a FINAL version. If you decide to try to do this you will not be able to connect online and may even run the risk of being banned so don't try it. Also note if any corruption or any failure to your system should occur you have no come back for this.

    The filename to look for is: TDU_Patch_1.64A_deploytest_20070706_10_32.exe

    Note the deploytest section and also the filesize is only 16.6Mb.

    Thank-you.

    Wait, so someone leaked a test patch which wasn't supposed to work in the first place? Or am I reading it wrong at 11PM at night?

    A = Alpha so not a final version, none of the files that have been leaked are recommended for install as it will probably result in no online play plus a possible banning.

    Notice what the actual filename says deploytest and the A after the version number, it's not a finalised patch, it was for internal testing of downloading from FTP and testing it is not a final version. If you decide to use it please note you do so at your own risk and also direct from Atari themselves it will probably result in the inability of online play.

    As I said, what you choose to do is on you, you have no comeback on Atari or Eden if any trouble happens with your system due to it.

    Respectful as I am of the Mod's authority whilst on this board, I chose to download and install the patch. I had no problems with it, but I have heard of people needing to re-install the game so I won't say this works for everybody.

    <ATARIRANT>For goodness sake, it’s been months of delays. I'm sick of waiting for them to do something most developers manage without trouble. How can they not expect us to jump at every opportunity to make our gaming experience better? I have no problems with anything in-game anymore, the patch worked perfectly. Why did it take so long?

    And banning accounts? Pffft, if they ban all patch users now then half the community will vanish. I have my Skyline, I have my RS4 and I'm enjoying them both.</ATARITANT>

    Incidentally, that rant isn't directed at anyone personally. It’s just me venting my spleen and that's the last of it you're hearing from me. Unless I get my account banned, obviously.

    And many thanks for the update, Diablo.

    I went ahead and got it as well. The new cars aren't very interesting to me. I'm much more happier about the fact that my game no longer gets glitched out and requires ALT+Tabbing. Also, since I applied the patch I've run into a lot more people on the road where before I could never see them except on the map.

    This is a great day in my TDU career, I received the patch from a very reliable/helpfuk source and an hour before that achieved Champion level :D

    Same here too, I'm totally relieved by some of the fixes. Plus the lack of crushing bass in my added mp3s has made my whole family sigh in relief.


    Sounds like the Cabrio to be honest. :happyroll:

    Hmm is this the DLC content or just a patch to fix glitches? Since people are talking about the Audi RS4 (which isnt in the original 1.01-game)? Is some cars added?
