the game WON'T Launch! Simply Disappears.
Hey guys.

Game won't launch and this is what happens.

-> Go to steam libraries press button
-> _UpLauncher comes up "Checking network please wait" (Says Moderate sometimes and blocked others)
-> Press the [PLAY] button at the bottom
-> ♥♥♥♥ing nothing...... It just disappears.

I check the Task Manager and not a trace of the application exists... It just goes back to my desktop.

How do i fix this garbage? Happens on my 2 570's and My 7970 so it can't be a driver issue.

Funny thing happens when Verifying the game Cache.

> Steam finds missing files (14.7MB) and redownloads them
> The uplauncher finds old files (14.7MB) and updates them
> Steam finds missing files (14.7MB) and redownloads them

See whats happens is Steam Downloads OLD files and the UP launcher downloads the newer ones.

Aye same problem, pressing play once launcher validates files ends up saying can't play online, and asks if I want to play offline, I say YES (won't let me play online), and it just disappears and nothing. Tried checking file integrity via steam, did get a small download, but still won't function.

If anyone finds a solution please let everyone else know. What a waste of money...

It's strange, my TDU2 works just fine. Absolutely no problem except for the moderate port, but I don't care for that, as long as it isn't completely strict or NEVER full cone. I do get FullCone sometime, most of the time moderate, rarely strict. I think this depends on the speed of the connection between TDU2 server and yourself, I'm not sure...

But enough of that, did you guys TRY reinstalling? For all we know, it might be just that. If that doesn't work, then try contacting Eden Studio, or Steam Support Helpdesk.

Ideas:
Verify Game Cache
Restart PC
Reinstall Game
Launch as administrator
Otherwise make sure that your graphics drivers are up to date, and make sure that your graphics card can handle the game. I believe when you start the game for the first time there is a huge update, so you might want to make sure theres not the updating program running that you can't see. Otherwise you might just be stuck and theres nothing I can think of right now. I'll report back if I think of something.

Same problem here too. I've tried this game on two different computers (the same install files though) so its not a hardware or driver issue. I've also downloaded the game twice 14 gig worth... I wonder if i get a refund on the wasted bandwidth if I request one for the game too haha.

I just bought this game and it won't start I'm worried Atari won't reply since there going bankrupt is there anything steam can do?
Ra88it Feb 9, 2013 @ 7:24am 
game wont work dont buy it !
Zurevla Feb 12, 2013 @ 7:57am 
i got the same problem, but with something else, im getting an error #04: An error occurred while installing components.
Please check your permissions to access files on the directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Test Drive Unlimited 2\", then restart the update.

If the problem persists, contact Atari technical support.

[ERROR #04]

as far as i know i checked all permissions...

Exact same problem here. Tried everything I think, nothing helps.

I have the same problem. I could play with my old machine, but cant play in the new one. Hopefully there will be a solution.
Also if i try to start the uplauncher its sayst the ERROR #0a, after that if i try to start it again, it loads a bit, but doesnt starts the game, and also my status on steam goes back to normal... Also my game ask for CrashHook.dll, and if i copy it to the game folder it doesnt do anything.
