The Steam version of FlatOut is the v1.0 version. This is the v1.1 patch for FlatOut that works with the Steam release. GOG is already patched to v1.1, and does not need this patch.

Originally posted by Clya900, the patch was missing 2 files are now included in this download, patch1.bfs, and patch.ini. Without these files, the game would fail to load, and shows a Runtime error. The game now has been tested on the Steam version, and works perfectly fine.

      Steam are releasing a new Remote Play Together streaming option. This will allow one Steam user to stream their game with another remote Steam user, and for them to play the same 'local' game together.
      The feature was announced on the Steamworks website, which is a developer area, however the announcement has been shared publicly:
      This kind of streaming online multiplayer feature has been available through other methods such as Parsec.

      On September 17th, the High Court of Paris passed judgment over a legal battle between Valve, and a French consumer rights group known as UFC-Que Choisir. The court ruled that, (according to a translation by Windows Central), publishers and hosts of digital content must allow the reselling of digital copies of games on the Steam platform:
      While Valve intends to appeal this ruling, currently, they have three months to change their policy before being in violation of French law. While this would currently only impact Steam users in France, this can have ramifications for digital game services as a whole.
      If Valve's appeal fails, other services in France may be forced to follow suit in order to compete with Steam's newfound software freedom. Furthermore, these services may adopt this new business model in other territories in an attempt to reach a degree of parity.
      Still, until the case finishes development, only conjecture exists on the matter.

      As reported earlier this week by Bleeping Computer, ArsTechnica and other sources, a security researcher found a vulnerability that allows to gain full access to the target computer through elevated privileges, which could be exploited by malicious game creators. According to the articles and included researcher statements, Valve have rejected two researchers' attempts to get rewarded for reporting the issue through the HackerOne platform on the basis of being out of scope and allegedly requiring physical access to the device.
      The researches decided to go public as the result.
      Since then, Valve appear to have patched the Steam client but only in the beta as of today.
      Update: On August 13, the main client was also updated to patch the vulnerability.
      Update 2: Bypassing the fix is possible.

      Classic games The Lion King (1994) and Disney's Aladdin (1993) have been delisted from Steam without so much as a word. 
      Thankfully GOG.com have given a short warning of just over 24 hours in this forum post announcement :
      Another Disney game, The Jungle Book, has been delisted from Steam but still available from GOG.com - who knows if more Disney games will be delisted in the future?
