      The Steam and GOG versions of FlatOut are the v1.0 version. This is the v1.1 patch for FlatOut that works with the digital releases of the game: Steam & GOG.
       
      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, however the GOG is untested, but should work just as well.
       
      Original patch notes below:
       
      FlatOut PC patch v1.1
      2004-Dec-10
       
      To install the patch:
      Copy the Flatout.exe, patch1.bfs and patch.ini files to the root of the install folder (by default this is c:\program files\empire interactive\flatout) and run the game.
       
       
      The following items have been fixed or improved:
      * Fix for the nVidia 66.93 drivers. The game no longer crashes when a race is started. The game has also been tested up to the 67.03 drivers with no problems found.
      * Engine fire burns aligned to the car's coordinates, e.g. when the car is upside down, flames go down.
      * Tuning menu: BHP meter and colors randomly switch when changing profile.
      * Flip back and forth to statistics screen and the BHP grows bug.
      * Force feedback slows game in some cases.
      * 5.1 sound support is not working on some setups.
      * Disconnects when returning to the lobby in multiplayer games.
      * When the game briefly minimizes before starting a multiplayer game, sometimes gives a blue screen (this is quite rare, but it does happen sometimes)
      * Only 2 players can play if NetLimiter is installed.
      * Bug with public ip detection, if the commandline network options are used.
      * Enabled a switch to allow the player to turn off ragdoll in single player (located in the Options Menu).
      * Enabled multiplayer destruction derby.

      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.

      IMPORTANT
       
      Since game version v1.09 this fix is no longer needed, because the game received an official option to enable XInput support.
       
      If you are interested in using PS4 button prompts, you can find a corresponding option in the most recent version of the PRIC mod.
       
      ---
       

      TL;DR
      This fix resolves controller issues in Prey that were introduced with patch v1.05, by forcing the game to use XInput instead of the Steam Controller API by Valve.
       
      Quick start guide:
      Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
      Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)


      Features
      While Prey originally offered good controller support, patch v1.05 introduced various issues. Instead of choosing either XInput or the Steam Controller API based on the user settings, the game always uses the latter. This results in problems with the movement as well as certain controller settings or the controller not working at all if the user has disabled the usage of the Steam Controller API in game's properties in Steam.
       
      This fix re-enables XInput support and forces the game to use it, regardless of the settings.
       

      Instructions

      Supported Versions
      This fix is designed for the latest, fully patched version of Prey and the Mooncrash DLC and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables.
      Steam v1.08

      Note that the fix currently does not work with the demo version of the game.
       

      Install
      The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.
       
      Important: When using a non-XInput controller such as the DS4, you will need a XInput emulator like DS4Windows for this fix to work
      Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
      Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)

      Although the fix forces the game to use XInput, it is necessary to disable the usage of the Steam Controller API in the game's settings.
       
      The safest way to do this is the following:
      In the Steam client go to the menu Steam -> Settings -> Controller -> General Controller Settings
      Make sure PS4/XBox Configuration Support is checked
      Go to Big Picture mode and find Prey in you library
      Click Mange Game -> Controller Options and uncheck Use Steam Configuration for Non-Steam Controllers
      Uncheck the setting from step 1 again, depending on whether it was checked in the first place


      Uninstall
      Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game.


      Known Issues
      There are currently no known issues with using the fix.
       

      Additional Information

      Antivirus Software
      Since this fix consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner.
       
      If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file.
       

      Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors
      To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process.
       
      File method:
       
      The fix will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll.
       
      Folder method:
       
      The fix will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the fix. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.
       

      Contact And Support
      If you like this fix and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions.
