Anyone else experiencing audio problems? When I go from the 3rd person camera view to the cockpit view I can hear popping and cracking coming out of my speakers. Same happens when i'm near an online player who's got a mic enabled. Also will get the popping and cracking sound randomly when driving around. I don't think its my equipment as I only have this problem in TDU..

Also played some poker in the casino and really enjoyed it. Was just 1v1 va a random yet it was fast paced and didn't hang about; unlike Red Dead Redemption which annoyed me with how slow it was.

Liking the island, there's some awesome long straights which are also a bit windy.

Sure gonna be a queue of people returning this game instore on the grounds it doesn't work if all they get is the static opening screen without any messages at all.

Is it just me or does "hardcore" seem pretty easy? Quite pleased to piss all over Miami Vice in the first championship.

I hope I can change my blond bimbo looks later on.

Where do I find the Caterham?

I know in a few weeks we'll have more or less forgotten about the launch problems but for the moment it's a bit like having a winning lottery ticket but you have to pull it out of a bucket of shit with your teeth.

What a fantastic expression to sum up so many expressions and feelings. Man, cheers for that laugh.

but will it be to win the rollover or to win £10, that is the question!

to fish through a bucket of shit with my teeth for a rollover winning jackpot ticket i would do it happily, wake up the next day and do it again for fun.

imagine fishing through shit and finding you have a winning ticket.. but its only for a tenner which you then have to spend on some glade and aquafresh

I would have listerine higher up my list of things to spend the winnings on ;)

Ta-da :)

Roads aren't exactly the same compared to the game, but it's in this neighborhood. At a crossing on a very long B-road.

Sorry if this has been asked a thousand times but is there a way turn off the camera/head movement when playing using the in-car view? You know how it moves about when you go round a corner fast or crash? It makes the in car view impossible to play for me. Obviously I'll just play from the bonnet view if not but I'd prefer in car if possible.

Seems like you can't. I'm sure they've put it in to accommodate wheel users, who complained about not being able to see around them with the lack of a stick. So now they've done this :rolleyes:

Quite a dealbreaker for me too, it's not like I'm all wobbling and sliding during real driving or anything. So I mostly stick to chase (close) cam, and occasionally the bonnet view.

430ish am. Oops

heh, same. i had issues getting my caterham. finally figured it out. another "boot game while not signed into Live" fix. then it appeared in the used car dealer's place. still cost me 63k. i spent most of the time driving around doing nothing but exploring and mapping, must get back into the challenges now, still haven't even done the off road competition. shameful! only not cos the story is pure brie as everyone has already said.

Wow, a used Caterham? Surely you're at the point of having unlocked the A3 (or even A2) Championship now?

And as an occasion car, is it upgraded?

Completed the first off road championship. The time trial where you are going down steep hills on the tight track was amazing. The races have all been really easy so far and I'm not too fussed if that continues. I just want loads of money and loads of big houses stuffed with auto erotica.

Has anyone else had the game failing to load the road and your car disapppearing into a black hole thing. I keep getting it and am wondering if it's to do with the game being installed on the HD. It's probably not, but seeing as no one else has reported it here and I've only seen it mentioned on the TDU2 forums once, you do start to look for an explanation.

Oh an online is still fucked for me.

I found the Bugatti dealership but really don't want to test drive any cars until I can afford them. So far money is a bit of a struggle to accumulate and the price of some of the cars and houses is crazy. I expect you either get a lot more in prize money as you progress or there are a ton of races available.

When it did work this morning I had a guy called trollface driving a veyron doing his best to overtake me constantly and then pull in and try to stop me going anywhere. Maybe online being fucked is a blessing in disguise.

it was my amazon pre-order reward. i'm hardly anywhere in terms of championships, i only own 3 cars and i won one of 'em off miami. doing convoys to earn enough money for a toureg thingy before i do the offroad championship. in other news, i bought an apartment. and decorated it. and i bought a hat. fun! :rolleyes:

From the brief experience Ive had with randoms I'd agree!

Just wish you could limit it to only having friends online with you.

Also the lack of a mute player function is a bugger.. Had some knob running around our poker table last night screaming random shit for 10 minutes... You'd think they would have something better to do ingame!

I find the money thing a lot more balanced in this game, partly due to not being able to farm huge amounts with just a few events.

Earning 100.000 dollars for a car Delivery in TDU1 was quite ridiculous really. Now you can earn a good 70k or so by doing a 6-event Championship, and earn some good extra bucks with Convoys (the new Deliveries). Just enough to buy a car for the next class Championship and save up the rest for a new house every now and then.

I know you'd like to get a lot of money to buy the more interesting car, but the lack of real structure in TDU1 made it hard for me to stay motivated. No problems with that this time around.

I've also had the plane to Hawaii ready for two days, time to board that and see what's new there :)

I've had a few great races though, five Instant Challenges (of which I won 4 :eyebrows:) and one Race event which went well too. Oh well, that's the thing with online randoms.

Let's just hope we can all meet up online properly soon.

Indeed.

Also totally agree about the money.. I'm quite enjoying having to choose purchases carefully at the moment.. First I've hot to buy a new place before I can even think about getting any new cars.

Silly game I love you so!

I have had a bash on the pad this afternoon, odd as obv much better for the sims part of the game but wheel is defi better for driving!!

Gfx and framerate are odd, at times it looks great and zips along and then it looks shite and under 30fps - seems like in built up areas with lots of other players and the fame engine just fives up!!!

Really want to buy this but there is no way I'm buying a game which has save game issues. As soon as they release a patch I'm in.

Corrupt Save Files? - This is a known issue. There is a chance that this error message may come up erroneously. If this occurs, exit to the Xbox Dashboard immediately without clicking "Delete" or "Retry." - we're working on a long term fix. If the workaround does not resolve the problem, unfortunately there are currently no known methods of recovering a corrupted save file.

Yeah I've noticed frame rate issues when there's a few people around. I'm sure this didn't happen on the first game.

I bought a Golf as my second car; did anyone else? I'm not sure how I came upon the dearlerships - part of me thinks by luck, the other part by amazing design.

I also test drove a couple of cars; it's just 2 minutes this time which while a bit annoying - actually it kind of works better than before. Just a wee taster!
