I'm trying to start TDU2 but it crashes right away after launch, i tested in my laptop that has integrated Intel graphics it launches normally there. What may be the problem?
GPU: Asus Tuf Gaming x3 Rx 5700
CPU : Ryzen 5 2600 Stock speeds.
Ram: 16 Gb @ 3000 MHz (2x8 Gb Sticks)
Running Windows 10 1909.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The game is not available on Steam anymore so I had to look around more.
Given the game is on the Xbox 360 it should be playable with the RX 5700
The current driver is 20.2.1 and it is more stable than the last few. Have you tried that one?
Yes i tried with the latest drivers 20.2.1, still the same, sometimes it goes past the initial loading screen but freezes just before the main menu loads.
Edit: Already DDU'd the drivers just in case, but no luck.
I am aware that the game has a pile of problems which is probably the reason it does not run well. I dug around and found a bunch of forum posts all over on this game from a few years back.
There are other driving games if you cannot coax TDU2 to run.
I just spent an hour troubleshooting this crap as it's only a problem for AMD GPU's.
Nvidia or Intel GPU works fine (being one of those household that have all of them)...
I've checked the game logs, the game crashes as soon as shaders are supposed to be initialized ("initialising shader environment")
I've got 2 screens so I've been monitoring the application on Win10 task manager, where you can check if GPU is used for the application:
I'm on a 5700XT, I remembered our GPUs had specific problems with DX9, so this might be another version of it.
I feared that might be the case, well the game runs well enough on the Laptop with a few Tweaks, strange that the first TDU runs normally on the RX 5700, (Though need to cap the framerate at 60 or the traffic goes insane).
Hello, using a directx wrapper, such as dgvoodoo2, seems to allow you to launch and play the game. Unfortunately it also introduces some graphical artifacts that can be quite annoying. Perhaps modifying the settings, or trying a different wrapper, might help.
Thank you, Can confirm that with the dfvoodoo2 wrapper it does work near perfectly except for the graphical artifacts which can get annoying after a while.
