I only got to champion ship level last week.I'm trying to do that 180mph $70,000 reward every so often to get money but I don't want to spend hours doing that over and over.
Yeah, me either. I only have a few million. I'd rather cruise than farm money.

... the old "sell any Car for 9,99 Million $"-Trick* does still work, does it? I?m a bit low on funds atm ...

* put any vehicle up for sale and after a week (or so) the system will buy them, no matter what price you put in there 9,9 Million being the maximum. Not a very quick way to get money ... but you don?t have to waste time on single-player missions just to cash in :)

I've had a car on sale for a while because my funds are $0. :lol:

I've got enough cars to keep me happy, but not all of them are tuned...

Anyone know if this trick is for real?

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6XCiYFhfok[/youtube]

The instructions posted by the video poster.

Test Drive Unlimited - Secret Car Wash

INSTRUCTIONS:

(REMEMBER TO MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR FILES!!!)

Go to "\Euro\Bnk\Level\Hawai\Spots"

Copy this two files...

ecw_a.bnk
ere_a.bnk

...into two different folders (in example on your desktop).

Then change names:

"ecw_a.bnk" to "ere_a.bnk"
"ere_a.bnk" to "ecw_a.bnk"

And copy changed files into the original location (\Euro\Bnk\Level\Hawai\Spots) overwriting original files.

Then do exactly as showed on video. If you wanna drive to that place showed on video - the game will crash. So go there directly from your map.

For more info, go to ataricommunity forum, and search topic named: "Eden's Secret Girls"

Greetings to the Detress - he's the one who discovered this nice secret :)

Sorry for my bad english.

If faked, that was a pretty damn good job.

Why not try it and see if it works?

If anyone?s interested, I?ve put up a challange (Diner race - whatever you call that) ... it?s called "16 corners and a funeral" (just sort the list by name), and I?m quite fond of it, i think the track is good fun. :)

The lucky winner will take away at least 180000$ in TDU Money, and the pot is growing. Challange will be up for 3 Days now ... and I?ve put up a beatable 2.05 min so far. ;)

Is anyone still playing the game?
If someone is interested we should organize a FinalGear cruise.

It's sad but there are fewer and fewer players online :(
I just hope it doesn't follow the faith of Motor City, which servers were shut down :(

I`m going to buy this game this week, i know it is old, the question is - is it better to buy just the basic game or game with megapack ??

I reinstalled but I've been unable to get online with it, even with a reinstall and deleting the CDKey file, so I've just been doing offline stuff, unfortunately.

Any ideas?

It hasn't been a month yet so I'm still safe.

I just bought this game for a measily $20 and I've been playing it all day and I must say, the PC version has rendered my opinions before moot. It is just so much better than the PS2 version. One thing bugs me though, I have around 150000 dollars to buy a new car but instead of going for the Ferrari I have to go buy a lower class car to compete in those races before I can buy the Ferrari and actually use it.

By the way, can someone send me an invite to the FinalGear Club? My TDU nickname is veloceGT

The clubs in TDU don't really work.
And I like the fact that you have to buy slower cars first. It would be a little boring if you completed the whole game with a Ferrari.
(Not that I didn't play most of the races with my Countach...)

Bump.

Is anyone still playing? I was racing with some people this afternoon, it was like FinalGear only not because I was a nobody. I also sensed some hostility so I left. Anyone wanna join me in TDU some day?

I'd be willing. I loved cruising around. Especially the "oh lets go over there and see what they are driving".. then trying to keep up.

For money, I just did that Island Cruise race.. the one you have like an hour to drive around the island for $1million. In something like a MacLaren F1, or Enzo, or Koenigsegg, its not too hard... although I prefer the F1. Its just fun. I think I did that enough times to buy the 62 Ferrari GTO just to have one :)

I was on TDU-Central today. They've gone bust and have relocated to a smaller forum while they see what they can do to gather funds.
