    “Product Key verification step added, only genuine keys in good standing accepted as of version 1.3+” hmmm…

  2. Bart van Ham says:

    Buy the game then ;)

  3. Nathan keen says:

    I bought my key off ebay and now since updating the game it does not accept the key! :( so if you ask me make sure you get the box with the game £10 down drain!

  4. d3yUttz says:

    Can you give me a key for play the game ?

  5. Quarazhi says:

    Of course.. buyit-buyit-buyit-buyit-buyit

  6. 756ER234 says:

    it looks like this game is going to lost 50% of plyers right now…

  7. torben says:

    to get a key you must spent money in a local gamestore or on steam to buy it leagal. all those cheap skins that think they can just download a game then use a key generator, steals someone elses key and ruins the game, by using a cracked game does not pay out when comes to updates and online gaming becorse game producers protect there product.
    so my advice dont be gready and spend the 20-30 euro and buy an original version. and please dont ask for someone to give you there game key that is a little to weak

  8. hex says:

    @ 756ER234, why should we, or SCS, care about losing people who dont want to pay for the game?
    If you think you’re entitled to have stuff for free just because you can find ilegal ways to get it… reality check… you’re not.
    If you think it’s ok to grab free versions of stuff just because you dont have enough money to pay for them legally, tough shit, save your money until you have enough or do without.
    Welcome to the real world.

    • 756ER234 says:

      @hex i don´t care about then too i´m just saying that a lot of plyers are gunna quit cuz they don´t have the key, i paid for mine and i think they´re right on try fuck the fuckers who don´t pay for it

  9. Freddy J says:

    Agree buy the game, get Your licence and key and join the club! Or You go illegal scs has 100% los of players!

    Greets,

    Freddy

  10. torben says:

    i agree with you @756ER234

  11. d3yUttz says:

    Hey give me a savegame or cheat for xp:) Please!

  12. torben says:

    xp cheat is east you can use cheat engine for that

  13. MarTe says:

    can someone give cd key?

  14. Freddy J says:

    CD key? What are You gonna pay me for?

    (If You can beat them, jointhem hahahaha and if everyone is giving me € 15,– i can open a bank account in Switserlan)

    Go buy it You dimwit!

    Greets,

    Freddy

  15. Freddy J says:

    Go illegal and no company is gonna spend money to make ETS3, it is that You boltheaded paople can’t read!

  16. MarTe says:

    orly.. why i must pay for fucking.. game i pay for 1.2.5 version and on this version key its not working… im better drive real truck then pay everytime.. for this

    • hex says:

      If you have a legit game that you already had a key for, then SCS should be able to sort it for you, so why not contact them instead of asking for other peoples’ key?

  17. fuzionz says:

    wow some of u are stupid u still dont need a key 2 play 1.3v just google it i got it in 2 min

    • hex says:

      I could walk into any shop and find stuff to put in my pocket for free in 2min too. I prefer not to. I dont think I deserve that stuff for free. I guess I’m stupid.

  18. Bart van Ham says:

    The thing about keys on the internet is; if you can find it, SCS can find it too and it will be blocked in a short time. So enjoy it while you can.

  19. james says:

    enough about the illegal gamers. i upgraded my game and the mod found the legal key on the computer without a hitch. didnt even need to put in manually. ive tested a few few profiles fron 1.2.5 and no go every time. i have files set up of active mod files i was using and so far no go also. may be starting over. talk about game play development never ending!. started new profile and used a previous snow mod no-go. I can see a lot of unhappy gamers starting from scratch how depressing. Hope the mod designers are watching we may need a rehash of mod with updates, just for 1.3.
    by for now. Maybe we need to set up a mod 1.3 mod still works file huh

  20. hex says:

    It’s nice to have the correct names and logos on the Volvo and Iveco now, but it’s a pity the Iveco lettering on the Active Super and Active Space Super cabs is off center… strangley the same as on earlier versions of the Iveco real logo mod.

  21. hex says:

    STRANGELY, not strangley, nobody got strangled…soz

  22. james says:

    After i did a complete backup on all the files for ets2, i ran the upgrade mod 1.3. it went without a hitch BUT so far i can not get any trailer,truck,sound tuning or any of the massive mod library collection i have to work. It acts like they are not even loaded in the mod file. any map i introduce to it shuts it down for a complete restart. I see nothing different in the files of the upgrade. Did they put a mod block in the program. Im furious and i am unamimus in that. HELP

    • abasstreppas says:

      You have to add your mods in your profile, just hit the edit-button

    • Bart van Ham says:

      In v1.3 there is a function to edit your profile. In that menu you can turn mods on or off. Are they switched on?

      • james says:

        thankyou for the tip. it working now but now it trial and error for which mods will and willnot work. why does scs seem to think we do not need a upgrade manual to understand how to work these additions and what results are showing. we dont all work in their labs

  23. Sambora says:

    I agree james,

    thats the Only thing wrong with official scs patches,
    they screw up the mods being used.

    i would not mind so much if scs actually went to some effort do do the updates Properly, but they are half arsed at best. only half to look at Off center lettering. dont they take any pride in there work ?.

    obviously not.. now the games been out a while ..why bother putting any reall effort into the patches ..

    so it looks like we ALL have to start over yet again…figuring out what will work with this new patch.

  24. Freddy J says:

    That is why i went back to 1.2.5.1

  25. Marios C says:

    Totaly shit!!!!!!!!if someone looking for a reason to stop playing ETS2…then install patch v1.3!!!There is nothing new in there exept “profile editing” something which is useless!All these upgrades exist in Mods in 1.2.5.1,So..version 1.2.5.1 again and again!!

  26. EddyCJ says:

    Weird that SCS did this with these serial codes…Look at the people who made the Sims! To absolutely every Sim game there are keygens…And The Sims games is one of the best bought game ever! And they never made this kind of thing and I bet they know that many people don’t buy it…but hey…let people play the game not to make a game and just a few can play it! I would have bought the ETS 2 but in my country I can’t find it nowhere in the game stores! And for me to buy it from Steam is quite expensive…so I don’t want to do this but…seems like I must quit ETS 2!

    • Bart van Ham says:

      But The Sims has dozens of sequels and expansion packs, and the target group is twohundred times bigger. It’s not difficult for EA games to make more profit from that than SCS from ETS2

      • Freddy J says:

        Eddy is right, SCS is digging their own grave, all loyal buyers and comming buyers will think twice to buy the game,

        If i knew this before i’ll never bought the game, because ETS is good enough for me and in there lots of hobbiïsts made great things for ETS,

        I wonder how long we can make mods and stuff for ETS2, SCS wants to know all from us, that’s what scares me,

        And Bart, EA is 1 of the biggeste and best game makers in this brand,

        Greets,

        Freddy

  27. hex says:

    Yep, if something seems “quite expensive”, just grab a free ripped copy and a keygen, because you deserve to have whatever you want when you want it, for free.
    Lol.
    Go apply that to everything else in life you’d like to have but think is too expensive for you to to pay for, and let us know how that goes for you.

    • Freddy J says:

      Hex,

      In some Eastern European countries are things very expensive while people have 5 or more times less money than we in the werstern world, also the price per country differs, strange we should have 1 Europe, if i was in such a possition i would do probaly the same,

      With illegal stuff You know that it will not work all the time,

      Greets,

      Freddy

  28. Bart van Ham says:

    If Europe united everyone would be out of a job and no one would have moeny except the Eastern Europeans.

    • Freddy J says:

      That is just why i am against a United Europe, it cost all our citizens of wich country and the boltheads earning tuns of money a year where i only can dream of,making decissions i don’t want.

  29. Quarazhi says:

    Yeaaah Nothing changed at all.

    official licenses from Iveco and Volvo
    ability to change the company name, logo or preferred brand
    retarder (automatic or manual)
    per-profile mod selection (can be overridden using -force_mods command line parameter)
    support local currencies of each country in the game
    gearbox accessory selection
    new online radio stations (now up to 190 stations)
    physics takes into account different weights for trailers and cargos
    Renault Premium upgrades
    Renault Magnum side-skirts are now an optional upgrade
    hired driver log
    hired drivers more likely to find suitable cargo on the way back
    re-hired driver issue fixed
    ferry fee is not charged to player for quick jobs
    UK distances in GPS fixed
    fixed memory leak when playing mp3 files using radio
    improved handling of corrupted save files
    improved resiliency to some types of corruptions caused by mod removal
    fixed cabin blur during rain
    over 200 map changes and fixes
    several German roads thoroughly tweaked and prettyfied
    bump causing damage on German A3 fixed
    powerline columns in the middle of the road removed
    gas station in Bremen
    AI curves fixing on some prefabs
    increased vertex buffer sizes to improve game stability with more detailed vehicle models
    Product Key verification step added, only genuine keys in good standing accepted as of version 1.3+

    It’s strange cause I haven’t had any problems with the new patch. But hey I actually bought the game too so why should I?

  30. hex says:

    Yep, lots of good stuff in this patch, a few things I was hoping for and a lot more besides. Plus automatic key verification for any legit version of the game.

    The justifications here for having non legit versions dont hold water. It’s a computer game, a luxury, not a vital need. You get it if or when you can afford it, wherever you are. I cant afford everything I would like to have either. Tough shit for me, I’ll have it when I can, legally.

    Anyone who feels entitled to grab it for free can justify it any way they want, it makes no difference. The only people they convince/delude, are themselves.

    Peace

  31. james says:

    Im back. I am getting use to the profile changer, so far the program defaults if the mod you check does not work in this version. it also tells you what mod is not checked for the save file you are loading. thats nice.
    I have an extensive library of mods all with an index system by date downloaded, now that i need to review what works for this upgrade. Does anyone know(since scs does not give you any info, but expects us to do it for them) whether any of the profiles in the profile backup file can be reintroduces to this v1.3 profile? I tried but it only defaults regardless of how i do it. I wish instead of numbers they would use title of the profile instead. Still trudging along, but not as furious as i was earlier. Feel sorry for the authors whos mod now need to be rewritten again due to an upgrade. slows down the fun if you have to work to enjoy it huh. One last comment-how come the captcha always never works the first time?

  32. Quarazhi says:

    I’m tired of listening to people bitch about the new updates. But I agree with James. (since scs does not give you any info, but expects us to do it for them) How can they know which mods works for 1.3.0 They said it would bring issues with modded games and that you should update a clean game.

  33. torben says:

    have a good stack of mods in my game they worked fine on the old patch but after i installed the new one today can play for 10-15 minutes at a time then the game starts to lag like nuts then crashes this patch sucks ass i cant run the game with special cargo mod (the one with a big bulldozer) game crashes befor it gets to the main menu is the patches are getting worse or is it just me

    • Quarazhi says:

      Patches is helping making the game better.. Mods aren’t working BOO Freaking HOO! wait till they are compatible. They changed a whole bunch of stuff that will effect stand-alone trailers in particular.

  34. Jan says:

    guys, for those who didnt have the key valid and want this patch, go to windows firewall and advanced settings and do this:
    1- put in inbound rules make a new profile whit ets 2 and put it on block connection.
    2- put in outbound rules same and u can play the game w/o any problem.
    good luck and have fun!

  35. Lars says:

    To stop arguing about should i or should not get latest patch, just continue playing 1.2.5.1 version as 80% of modders do. No one really care any more is SCS going to fix something or not, when there is mods that can fix everything without any SCS crap like this.

  36. mak-kyver says:

    V1.3.1 is release allready…

    • james says:

      here is the official comment for update 1.3.1 from the site (1.3.1) (several safety checks added to improve stability with unofficial game mods created for previous versions of the game). Question, why safety check previous mods unless they don’t want the good ones in their game doing what they should be doing for us! sounds like they don’t want the gamers to improve THEIR game. Well here we go again.

  37. fauna2 says:

    1.3.0 require more powerful PC. Most SCS mods,truck… does not work in 1.3.0 :(

  38. Bart van Ham says:

    Again, only standalone trailers, soundmods and realistis physics mods have to be redone for 1.3. All other mods are no problem.

  39. indonesia player says:

    @Lars: i agree with you (y)

  40. james says:

    I don’t know whether anybody is interested in the small details that i am finding out about this new mod, but here are a few I have found so far.
    1. if you want to know what profile is under what number in the profile file of this game, make a seperate new file and call it “profile finder”. First make a listing of all the profiles in the projile edit listing. Then go back to the profile file. Then just move any number to this file (just move it, no need to copy it unless you do not feel safe about just moving it),and it will not show up in the profile edit listing. YOu can now write the referance number to the profile.
    This can come in useful when you do new updates and problems arise of profiles not showing up. You also now have backup profiles made automatically and and stored in the (BAK) file (in the same area of your computer the profiles are in,for the previous update number
    My files are located in disk drive letter game is on/documents and settings/my documents/euro simulator 2/profiles and other file here.
    2. don’t try to rename the numbers to any other title because the program will not recognise any numbers being changed.
    3. When putting files into to the profile edit file, any file once added to that profile MUST stay in that profile or it might not work if they are removed or deleted out of the mod file. So this mod file can become extensive in size.
    4. You can keep the mod file size down by copying and pasteing all the files and putting them in a seperate file and labeled under that profile. Then if you change profiles just save the existing profile this way and delete the existing file and copy and paste the files from the profile you want to use into the mod folder and load that profile. It work this way and will process the game faster as it runs. I can not guarantee it will work on all types of computers but i have a desktop with not problesm so far.
    My research of the game goes on. If you think I have helped with this info let me know and i will post more as i find successful results. thanks for reading.Sorry I only know english I live in TEXAS.

    • Charlie says:

      What if I happened to rename the savefile just before I read this post? I hope there is a way to get my
      savegame back, I would quit ETS2 because there was soo much time in that savegame :(

      • james says:

        not a lot of info given. if you saved the file in the save game location it only adds another save file to to the profile, and both will work. if you changed the profile numbers to something else it wont work because the numbering system is generated by the input info you name in the profile section at the start of that game

        • Charlie says:

          “if you changed the profile numbers to something else it wont work because the numbering system is generated by the input info you name in the profile section at the start of that game”
          Yeah that is what I did. Is there anything that could solve this?

          • james says:

            The only thing I know of is if you had copied the original numbers down then you could find the backup file and use it or try and redo the numbers that you changed on that file

  41. Lars says:

    80% people on the modders community forums, like trucksimsforum, for example, are not even planing to install this.

    Why? The answer is simple. There are only two things new in it. Retarder, which is little retarded by the way, and trailer weight for every trailer separate. Other things are totally useless.

    Because of two things, hundred of mods not work. Basically this so called patch, is nothing more than MOD it self. Now…are you ready to ruin a WHOLE game, and “millions” of mods, just because two new “mods” from SCS? NO!

    So stay on 1.2.5.1. Microsoft release service packs for windows all the time, but i don’t see that someone install them right away.

  42. chester says:

    i don’t want to ruin my game… i will stay in v1.2.5.1… in this patch there allot of possibilities that you can experiment many mods that you want… and that so called v1.3.1.. that’s make you shit out of your pants trying to fix your mod problems…. so that… i stay in v1.2.5.1

  43. chester says:

  44. Tiigeris says:

    Hey guys, i found a workaround 1.3 patch and it works! no activation request! nothin :D only thing is i must sort out mods, cuz 1.3 dont support many of them, so for safety i disabled all mods, and will start from scratch!

  45. Tiigeris says:

    wow truck retarder system is awesome, thats like comparing day and night to usual truck motor brake. like the new look of interface too ^^

  46. DriverFromUkraine says:

    I am trying to get this update but how do I know which version I have? I have Euro Truck Simulator 2 if that helps.

    • Erick says:

      In the bottom center when choosing profile there is number example 1.1.3 or 1.2.5 or 1.2.5.1 this is the version. Have a nice day
