When I started the game this morning (10 hours ago), there was an xbox live update for TDU2. It was 2MB size but it's not the DLC2 with bikes. The update only includes new tuning shops for both Hawaii & Ibiza. It's been so long since the last update for this game (the last update corrected the roullette servers in the casino last year). Still very keen for bikes to appear.
I'm guessing this may be a clue? 0_o
I think Atari is mocking us. Theres been no news Atari would bring out an update containing tuning shops. But haven't made the effort to check their website. Everyone just expected the next xbox live update would be the DLC 2 bikes with new clothing (shop for brands - which is also supposed to be in the DLC). All my other games get frequent updates. But not this one ^_*
Eventually this game is going to be abandoned. I'm pretty sure they'll shut down the servers for good when that happens. Great game; poor maintanence.
I'll tell you something hilarious. When I visited the Cash-game Poker room for $2,500 when I entered the room I saw players at the big table and I fell like from the ceiling of that room down into the dug-up dirt foundation like there was no floor. I couldn't wonder into the grass bush area. Just walk around the dug-up dirt foundation. Has anyone else experienced this?
Makes you wonder if Atari does any "real" maintenance on this game. It's a great game for sure! Many play it. If it were made by Microsoft or EA or Square Enix or something they'd do a better job of maintaining it. If they shutdown the servers, the number of people playing it will sharply drop and you will only be playing with AI cars and AI people in the casino. And yup the casino servers crashed my slim 250gb console once tonight. Atari do your job properly please. Microsoft doesn't like getting complaints from us. I aint complaining but I'm sure other members out there are.
Remember, Atari is the publisher, Eden Games are the Developers, And i believe they're the ones that managed it.
With the problems at eden/atari, It will probably be a while before many of the known bugs are fixed, Hopefully though, There still are people that are dedicated to tdu and wish to see it through to the game it should have been.
There's a few Dev's about the TDU2 forums still, And from what I've read of their posts, Things should start looking up for the game. ( players that are modding are getting the Banhammer! finally :) )
@Smiles, do you remember what day we saw each other in the Casino? I was surprised to finally meet you ^_^
Thanks for the clarification, PARAMEDIC, now I and the rest of the players know who to "knock on the doors of with pitchforks and torches ready". I'm definitely one of those dedicated players. My only gripe is that they get the Auction House up and running and release DLC2 already. Oh really? Modders getting banned? I don't believe simply because of what I've seen from Eden's "banhammers" so far. Please provide proof if possible that Eden is actually managing the modders because they are becoming a nuisance in the CRC.
Players that are modding are Starting to be banned, I know of a few that have been banned recently, But don't wish to name and shame, But i do acknowledge that there's still a huge problem.
There's a new Reporting method over on the TDU2 site where you're able to report modders, And a New Admin called "Mattlab" has been actively banning players that have been modding, so there's a step in the right direction.
What i will say is we need Mods on TDU that actively sweep the game of modders and cheaters.
I'm a fanboy of TDU to be honest, I loved the first one, Loved the second one, Even with the problems, So I've got my pitchfork waiting under my bed.
I've run into a few modders. The naked women, and the women with blue skin and white face. And the man with yellow skin and strange red tatoos. And the all-white man. There was also a player when I tried to look him up, my console said the player does not exist on Xbox Live so I reported it to Microsoft. It doesn't really hassle me. But if it has an adverse impact on other gamers, then ---. Judging by Atari's management, I put more faith in Microsoft Xbox 360 moderators rather than Atari moderators.
@ GTA it was probably Sunday since I do nothing that day or Tuesday or Saturday night. Don't know exactly. The content in TDU2 is WAY better than in TDU. I know I've played both. TDU2 has a great online atmosphere even with glitchy servers. Watch out for those casino servers though - very dodgy and are notorious for crashing your console. It's done it to me several times and I have those newer slim consoles, not the old arcade elite pro etc ones. I see the same people in the casino and sometimes wonder if they do anything else but casino in the game. But I don't mind playing with em.
The thing that sold me on TDU2 was the police content. Can you drive police vehicles in TDU? If so, I might reconsider because other players say TDU is better than TDU2, and I think I can agree but never played TDU, however, maintanence of TDU2 is poor. I'm against mods that create an unfair advantage for people, but I think Eden and MS are making a big deal over nothing when it comes to stickers, cars, and money. I'm iffy as well on skin mods because they look cool BUT unrealistic, which I'm a big supporter of. The nude mod should be banned as little kids DO play this game! What are your opinions on modding? I bring this up every time mods are mentioned because it brings up a good discussion, apart from flaming and unwanted spammers.
TDU Is certainly a great game, It doesn't have the option of using Police Vehicles, But it's a good investment.
Wrong there Paramedic, to an extent. You actually do have the option to play with Dodge Viper Police Ibiza and there is a gltich that allows you to get the Dodge Charger Police Ibiza as well, only problem is you can't store the Charger when you turn the game off.
For Test Drive 1? (That's what i was referring to)
Yup I played TDU 1st on PC I think 2nd on PS2 I think and now on my slim 250gb console. TDU2 is WAY better even though it has bugs
-So many players in multiplayer. Multiplayer is way more superior. Last time I went on TDU about 3 months ago only saw kids around 10 years old on it.
-Clubs are good
-2 islands instead of the 1 Hawaii
-Graphics are better just drive around and see
-Like The Sims 3 - customize your avator clothes shops and shop for cars and buy houses and yatches.
As for DLC 2 and bikes for TDU2, where the heck are they? It's 23/5/2012 already. So what if they release it now and it's not ready. They released TDU2 when it wasn't ready cause it was full of bugs. I'd like to see Microsoft and Sony complain to Atari about the poor service of this game. Atari... give the job to Microsoft. They get paid well and they love their job under better management.
