    FlatOut v1.1 Patch for Steam

    Version v1.1


    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.
  2. 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.
  3. DuckTales Remastered is going be removed from all digital storefronts including Steam on August 8th, according to this official tweet from Capcom USA: This gives us barely over one day's notice to quickly snap up this game for the last time on Steam. Luckily Steam keys should continue to be available on official resellers like Gamesplanet where it is conveniently on a 75% flash sale. Make sure to buy a piece of history before they run out of keys!
  4. As Valve's Steam Labs launch three new experimental features today, one has caught the interest of many Steam users: its new algorithm for game recommendations based on Valve's machine learning technology. Valve says the Interactive Recommender uses a "neural-network model that is trained to recommend games based on a user's playtime history, along with other salient data." The data is modified by two sliders that users can edit: one ranges from "popular" to "niche," while the other slider ranges from "older" to "newer" games. Rather than base recommendations around genre or category, the Interactive Recommender instead scans through Valve's data sets to find other Steam users with similar tastes. The model then recommends titles the user might enjoy based on other games played by like-minded Steam users. Valve also says they discard most category information about the game when entering it into their model. "We don't explicitly feed our model information about the games. Instead, the model learns about the games for itself during the training process. In fact, the only information about a game that gets explicitly fed into the process is the release date, enabling us to do time-windowing for the release-date slider. It turns out that using release date as part of the model training process yields better quality results than simply applying it as filter on the output," Valve said. They also discard information about review scores and tags, relying only on popularity and age variables. Users worried about this experimental technology replacing their regular Steam recommendations have nothing to fear for the time being. Rather, Valve says users who want to try the Recommender will have to specifically choose it under the Steam Labs experiments section. Regular Steam recommendations will still function as before. Since their algorithm discards the categories most other game recommendation algorithms operate by, Valve also claims that developers won't have to worry about optimizing their game description to make it more likely to be recommended. "The best way for a developer to optimize for this model is to make a game that people enjoy playing. While it's important to supply users with useful information about your game on its store page, you shouldn't agonize about whether tags or other metadata will affect how a recommendations model sees your game," Valve said. If you want to try the Interactive Recommender, head over to the Steams Labs experiments section. (via PC Gamer)
  5. Crystal Crisis launched for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch earlier this year. Now publisher Nicalis has announced that Crystal Crisis will be coming to PC via Steam at the end of the month. The competitive puzzle fighter features popular characters from Cave Story, The Binding of Isaac, and Astro Boy. Seen as a spiritual successor to the cult Capcom arcade game Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Nicalis describes Crystal Crisis as the "apex of the head-to-head puzzle battle genre." Crystal Crisis launches on Steam July 31 for $19.99, but pre-purchases will receive a 25% discount, lowering the price to $14.99. You can find Nicalis's full description of Crystal Crisis below.
  6. 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?
  7. This year’s Steam summer sale introduced the Steam Grand Prix, a meta-game which gives players the chance to win their “Most Wished For games”. The wording of this competition has caused confusion as many Steam users believed that winners would receive random games from their wishlist. This led to many Steam users removing cheaper games from their wishlist, most notably from independently developed games. As such, many developers and publishers were less than thrilled with this year’s meta-game. Developers receive notifications based on additions and deletions of games to users wishlists. Within hours of the Grand Prix launch, developers watched large amounts of users remove their games from wishlists in nearly real-time. Dan Hindes, developer of the upcoming title, WildFire, tweeted about the situation, showing a graph chronicling wishlist deletions for Wildfire. Thankfully, Valve addressed the furor before it could erupt, and modified the promotion’s guidelines. The new rules now clarify that “if your team makes it to the podium and you are randomly chosen to win something off your Steam Wishlist, then we’ll grant you the top item.” Hopefully, this revision can ward off some of the damage caused by the wishlist purging.
  8. Tim Sweeney, founder of the mega-popular studio Epic Games, took to Twitter in a dialogue regarding the recent Shenmue III fiasco. For those unaware, Shenmue III is a crowdfunded game produced by Ys Net. At E3 2019’s PC Gaming Show, Ys Net announced that Shenmue III would be launching on the Epic Games Store, instead of the previously announced Steam platform. Many backers were aggravated at the bait-and-switch, with no option to receive a Steam key, nor a refund. Sweeney revealed an alleged Steam policy discovered through partner discussions, “Valve policy prohibits providing Steam keys for games that aren’t going to be available at launch on Steam.” Furthermore, Sweeney criticizes the policy, “Steam policy change traps crowdfunded projects into either launching on Steam for 30% or offering backers refunds.” He further clarifies, “By “traps”, I just mean: requires that the game be distributed on Steam, ruling out any funding opportunity associated with exclusivity or preferential terms that might “disadvantage Steam customers”” Finally, when inquired about the fairness behind paying for exclusivity, Sweeney states “Valve has every right to make deals with developers and publishers to secure more exclusives, just as Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, and Epic Games do!” What are your thoughts on the matter? If Valve truly has a policy prohibiting keys for non-launch titles, would you agree that Steam is "trapping crowdfunded projects"?
  9. Steam Database, a group known for tracking Steam player counts, tweeted about this year’s Steam summer sale, the “Steam Grand Prix Summer Sale”, stating that it will begin today at 10AM PST on June 25th. The information was found on a Chinese Steam Community forum, SteamCN. The forum also included details about a new event for the sale, replacing the Steam Trading Cards typically distributed during sales. SteamCN user Cvisy posted a screenshot pertaining to the Grand Prix event. There is currently no information regarding the purpose of the Grand Prix Boost Meter, nor the correlation between purchases, purchase prices, and Boost Meter points awarded for the purchases. However, if one were to divide 100,899 by 999 (the current USD price for the Valve Index VR Kit), it can be assumed that $1 USD is equivalent to 101 Grand Prix Boost Meter points. Of course, this is merely speculation, and subject to change. What are you looking forward to purchasing during the sale? Do you intend to take advantage of whatever new promotion the Grand Prix entails?
  10. Blaster Master Zero, initially a title released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in 2017, has finally launched on Steam, with a promotional launch price of $8.99 USD. After June 21st, this will go up to $9.99 USD. Inti Creates developed this self-published re-imagining of the Sunsoft NES classic, Blaster Master. On release day, Blaster Master Zero's PC version is leaps and bounds ahead of their first foray into PC development, Azure Striker Gunvolt, featuring 60 FPS gameplay and fully remappable controller support. When Azure Striker Gunvolt launched on Steam in 2015, it was marred with a frame rate cap of 30 FPS, random peformance drops unrelated to hardware, and minimal controller support. However, the game was slowly patched over the years, removing the performance drops and adding more robust controller support and mapping. In 2017, Azure Striker Gunvolt was re-released on the Nintendo Switch, with a locked frame rate of 60 FPS. While this angered many PC gamers who had purchased the title, Inti Creates did not provide any comment on the matter. Eventually, in May 2018, Inti Creates released a patch for the Steam version that increased the frame rate to 60 FPS, giving it parity with the Switch version. 60 FPS support was clamored for before the Steam version even launched, and after nearly three years, the developers finally implemented it. In the present, Inti Creates announced that their upcoming project, "Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX", formerly announced to be releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, would also be receiving a simultaneous Steam release on September 26, 2019. Along with their recent releases of "Gal*Gun 2" and "Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon", Inti Creates is clearly making a stronger push with their IPs to the PC platform. PC players are being properly respected by Inti Creates, and this fully-functioning release shows it.
  11. Steam are planning something new with the Summer Sale 2019, here's the announcement: Steam trading cards have been a staple of the Steam Sale since first introduced in 2013. Valve have always tweaked how sales work and how to keep people engaged over long periods of time. For example Valve introduced a daily/flash sales only to disable them in 2015 - some have speculated that this changed consumer behaviour and actually increased total revenue over the entire sale period. The Steam Summer Sale is rumoured to begin 18:00 British Summer Time on June 25th, 2019 (13:00 ET, 10:00 PT), and will most likely end July 9th, 2019.
  12. Alpha Protocol, one of Obsidian's game more interesting RPG marred by a buggy launch, has been delisted from Steam. If you visit the Alpha Protocol page now, you won't be able to buy the game but you'll be faced with this message: The message is quite mysterious - we can only guess what the next move will be - a remastering on Steam at a higher price? A re-release on Microsoft Store now that Obsidian is owned by Microsoft? Thankfully you can still buy the Steam version through third parter sellers like Gamesplanet for now, at the princely sum of £2.50. Also check out our fixes article for Alpha Protocol.
  13. The latest Steam update has enabled 'Steam Remote Play' which is the new name for 'In-Home Streaming' which now works outside the home. Here are the details: Streaming games from your PC to outside the home was always possible using aplications like Moonlight or even setting up a VPN with Steam's In-Home Streaming. However this new update makes everything work natively with remote devices including Steam installed on PCs or Steam Link mobile app for iOS and Android.
  14. According to SteamDB, the new Steam UI interface has "leaked through an update to the Chinese CS:GO launcher”. What do you think of the changes? I for one will be glad as it looks like they are making much better use of the horizontal space, which my 3440x1440 monitor will appreciate!

    SteamPlay/Proton Support

    Hi, my name's Voxarp. I learned of PCGamingWiki from the late TotalBiscuit's videos back in the day and I used to help contribute from time to time but now days I'm mostly just a user. Thanks to everyone involved for providing such a great wiki! Recently Valve has introduced a new feature of SteamPlay called Proton which is a variant of WINE that allows Linux and possibly OSX to run Windows-only games. It's an exciting time! What the community seems to desperately need is a resource to: Report game compatibility, possibly with a WineDB type rating of Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum - right now all we have is a spreadsheet on Google Docs. Present fixes and workarounds for games that don't work out of the box. Provide clear delineation between Proton versions, a game might work properly on one Proton version but not another. Possibly provide an overview page with statistics on the percentage of games working, with a table that lets you sort by criteria such as Proton version or compatibility rating. I know this is a lot of effort and not to be taken lightly, but I feel it fits right in with PCGamingWiki's objective of providing fixes and workarounds for every single PC game.

  20. Hello, I tried doing the second part of the steam overlay bug fix to get the overlay working, by turning off GL extensions but Quake 3 crashes. Also, I tried out Quake 3 on my laptop today and it worked just fine with the Steam overlay. I didn't have to change anything, either in steam or in game. My laptop's specs: Intel i5 processor Intel HD 3000 graphics Windows 7 64 bit. My desktop's specs: AMD FX 4300 ATI 5770 graphics card Windows 7 64 bit. I have the 1.32 Point Release patch. My question is what is going on and how can I fix it? I posted this same question on the Steam forums, but I thought that I might get a better answer on here.

    Original thread
  22. It would be very helpful for user to know which games are restricted in specific countries on steam. I don't mean CIS and ROW games, more like games affected by 3rd party DRM like GFWL, publisher decision or even something as strange as auto-locked in Japan unless dev/pub manually set it as available in Japan.
  23. Original PCGamesN Source According to Steam's stats page the peak for today was 7,190,525 at once. Last year, on November 26, 2012, the concurrent peak hit 6 million at once. That's a growth of 1 million constant users over one year (plus a few days). This comes just one month after Steam reached the milestone of 65 million registered users, rising over Xbox Live for the first time. (Source: IGN) I couldn't find any solid, recent numbers on the concurrent peaks of PSN and Xbox Live. If anyone has sources for those I'll add them to this post.

    Valve announces Steam Reviews

    Steam Review scores will be shown alongside Metacritic scores on the actual game store page: Interestingly, unlike on Steam Discussions, developers won't be able to directly censor user's written content about their game: Developers will be able to respond to reviews and also have the power to mark as abuse or spam: We sincerely hope that Steam Reviews aren't abused and don't degenerate into the realms of Metacritic user scores or poor Amazon product reviews. More information about Steam Reviews can be found on this page.
