    A new development update for March 2020 that includes some juicy details has been released to the public! Learn more.

TDU World :: March 2020 Update!

Hello everyone!

After a while of absence, we are back with a new update with some exciting news.

Coronavirus COVID-19
As most of you know by now, there is a new virus going around the world right now, called COVID-19. Because of this, a big part of our team has been forced to stay at home because of the quarantine measures.

While this virus is one of the most terrible things to happen this century, it did give us time to work on TDU World. Some big steps are being made and we are able to show the first part in this update!

We wish the best to our community and their families who are being hit by this pandemic.

The TDU World Launcher
After being in the works for a while, we were finally able to finish the official launcher for TDU World. It is currently in testing stages and the first version will be released soon.

Funtionality will be to launch the game in online mode (of course) as well as offline mode. For the first release, the launcher will only be able to launch the game in offline mode while the servers are in development. The launcher also has a news section where the TDU World Twitter feed is shown. This way, everyone can see if there's a new update when starting TDU2. There is also an update feature, but this will be disabled for now.

What does it look like I hear you ask? Well, take a look!

Personally, we are extremely happy with how the launcher is turning out. Like said earlier, you can expect a release in the near future. For now we are still working on fixing and optimizing certain features.

That's all the news we can share right now. Stay tuned for more in the future!


Best regards

Exciting update. Been following this for a while, but only recently tried to jump back into TDU.

One question tho, yall probably aware that the newest graphic cards RTX20XX, and AMD 5XXX graphic cards all have severe DirectX 9 problems, whether it be crashing from Map screen or unable to start the game at all.

Is the team gonna look at that? Or is it gonna be a case of "hope you have an old graphic card" by the time the servers are public?

there's nothing we can do about the directx problem,
Is not within our scope we can not change any drivers or so

I have the solution. When the Map crashes you zoom out, then press alt+tab and then return to the game. That Will make the game work properly.

Personnellement, nous sommes extrêmement satisfaits de la façon dont le lanceur se déroule. Comme dit précédemment, vous pouvez vous attendre à une sortie dans un proche avenir. Pour l'instant, nous travaillons toujours sur la correction et l'optimisation de certaines fonctionnalités.

Voilà toutes les nouvelles que nous pouvons partager en ce moment. Restez à l'écoute pour plus à l'avenir!

Damn, it's a beautiful launcher, I really hope you will soon be able to correct the last things you have to do and release this beauty. Can't wait and good luck with the actual problems ! Just a little question; is the campaign conserved or is it only gonna be a multiplayer based reload?

Using D9VK which is a Direct3D9 to Vulkan layer fixes the issue. Running the game with 5700 XT the game would not start in DX9 mode you have to use this compatibility layer.


You just copy the corresponding .dll file in this case d3d9.dll in the main folder from the x32 folder (because the game is 32-bit) and the game will run in Vulkan. There is no notification or anything that it uses Vulkan but it started working as soon after I pasted the .dll before it just crashed. So yes it works.

And the good thing is it gives even better peformance than native DX9.

Thank you MyRide, dxvk completely resolves the map issue on my RTX card. Now, if only there was an online server to play on...

Glad to hear it helps. When first using Dxvk you may experience some stuttering at first due to pipeline compilation but this is normal and will go away.

Using Wine + dxvk also makes it possible to play TDU 2 on Linux even on newer hardware.
