Test Drive Unlimited 2 has been released and it didn’t come without problems.

Meanwhile you can refer to our troubleshooting guide for workarounds to resolve all these issues.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Errors, Crashes, Freezes, and Fixes

Note. Before you install the complete version of the game, make sure that you uninstalled the beta (if you have) to avoid any problems.

1# USB Gamepad Keys Not Detected – Gamepad Not Working
If your gamepad is not working properly, then make sure you have assigned gamepad buttons while your are customizing controls by pressing the desired button on gamepad. It will work fine once you have assigned the gamepad buttons in controls.

2# Logitech Controller Support Issue – Not Working
You can try removing the profiler software and use windows default control settings for the configuration to solve this problem.

3# NAT Errors, Networking – Multiplayer Online Connection Errors
If you are behind a router, you may come across NAT related errors while trying to play online. You need to portforward UDP 8889 so that you can communicate with other players online without any problems. Remember that NAT does not improve your game experience rather it is required for good multiplayer connectivity.

4# No Sound Problem
You might face this problem if you sound system higher than ‘2.1’. You need to change your speaker settings (from windows control panel) to ‘2.1’ or (Choose Stereo from Drop Down Menu) to resolve no sound problem with the game.

5# Game Starts in Windowed Mode
You can switch to full screen mode by pressing “Alt+Enter”.

6# .DLL Error at Launch – Test Drive Unlimited 2
You should install the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft’s web site.

7# Can’t Assign Separate Pedals Using G25
Test Drive Unlimited 2 is not very compatible with racing wheels and causes few problems now and then. If you want to assign separate pedals (to get rid of combined pedal issue), you can try the following workarounds:

  1. Open logitech gaming software
  2. Goto options and then to global device settings
  3. In steering wheel settings,untick the box “Report combined pedals”.
  4. This will enable you to set your pedals.
  • You can try uninstalling your Logitech’s software and use the default configuration.

If you are unable to make your wheel or gamepad work with Test Drive Unlimited 2, you should contact their support for details on your issue.

8# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Freezes After Joining Club
Here is a small work around to solve this issue:

  1. Unplug (disconnect) your internet.
  2. Head back to your house (in game) and exit the game.
  3. Plug your internet back in and start the game again.

This hopefully will solve the problem.

9# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Crashes at Launch – Crash to Desktop
Try re-installing the game on a different partition. Make sure that you have atleast 14GB of free hard drive space.

10# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Low Performance – Poor Framerates
TDU2 only runs at 60 FPS max – and if you aren’t getting maximum FPS on your rig which you think matches the recommended settings, make sure you aren’t running the game on SLI or Crossfire – Multi GPU. Test Drive Unlimited 2 has negative SLI/Crossfire scaling. You either have to wait for a specific application profile that disable Multi-GPU for it, or disable it yourself.

11# Securom ?
Test Drive Unlimited 2 is using Securom with a 4 machine activation limit. So the most important question you have been asking around has just been answered.

12# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Servers Not Available
Test Drive Unlimited 2 servers were busy with the launch of the game. I think they have fixed the issue, and they will work fine if you connect now.

13# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Steering Sensitivity Settings – Handling Fix

Use the settings shown in the above screenshot if you are facing handling issues with your Xbox 360 or PS3 controller.

14# Can’t Launch [ERROR #0a]

15# Can’t Start Game – Test Drive Unlimited 2
If you have downloaded the game from Steam, validate the install files or Re-install if you have installed the game from Disc.

16# How to Redeem Test Drive Unlimited 2 DLC
You can redeem your DLC codes here.

17# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Performance Issues – Steam Version
The steam version may cause stuttering issues throughout the game.
It has nothing to do with your hardware, the non-steam version runs fine with full settings. This has been reported by few people while others have faced no issue running the game on Steam.

18# How to Skip the Cut Scenes
You can’t skip the cut scenes.

19# Test Drive Unlimited 2 Bad Performance Xbox 360/PS3
Install the game to the HDD.
