Steam are planning something new with the Summer Sale 2019, here's the announcement

Quote

The Steam Summer sale is just around the corner! We're going to try something different with the event this year. While there will still be an event and rewards, we won't be featuring special trading cards, or any mysterious cards in the lead-up to the sale. Keep your eye out for more details when the sale launches, it should be a fun event.

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.

After the implementation of the refund system due to an lawsuit, one of the key reasons for visiting the Steam sale on a regular basis went away, namely the daily or time-limited special, went away.

Yes I forgot that Steam refunds kind of went hand in hand with Steal flash sales disappearing. Net positive though!

      This is simply a patched .exe from the Steam version of the game that resolves the performances issues, it saves you having to do the hex edit yourself.
      I don't believe it works for the GOG version, but you're welcome to try it out for yourself.

      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.

      Why is this game lagging when steam is in online mode? Everytime in the menus too. It drops to 1 fps for 10 seconds and that repeats. Whenever I go into offline mode this problem dissapears. But why does this game work like this?

      There's a little reported bug with the GOTY version on steam that causes some DX11 point lights to not blend correctly and show their polygonal edges.
      Here's the steam thread with the fix:
      https://steamcommunity.com/app/200260/discussions/0/810939350937769623/?ctp=2
      And the fix itself in a google drive link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B60dyrffWO_PNU50N0h3bE9fZkk/view?usp=sharing
      Visually the issue is very noticeable when looking at Tyger helicopter searchlights and the first room in the museum with the TVs pointed at Batman, they look like giant polygonal shapes that brighten anything within or behind them from your POV.
      The fix replaces two shader files that were sourced from the original GFWL release, the steam version's ones are the culprit. If someone could archive these and add a link and description on the wiki page that would be great.
      Unrelated, but I was trying to post this on the arkham city discussion page but captcha kept on resetting after pressing add topic, sorry I just made the account to try to put it on there so if I did something wrong my mistake.

      After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.
      The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.
      Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform. 
      Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.
