I discovered this after not being able to find my car.



Door has moved over to left hand side of screen!  :o

If restarting while out of car, door stays open. Door moves further and further away each time you do this. Eventually, lose control of driver and just drift off only moving left and right.

Although it's asking for a lot, any chance of tech demo/prototype/WIP version of FO2?

I can't get it working properly   :(
All I see after launch is white square and after some time this

Tried to re-download/install game, driver rollback (from 331.65 to 314.21), disabled options, run in windowed mode (through Ultimate ASI Loader). Nothing helped.
Game folder has 189 files and weighs 104 MB, OS is WinXP and GPU is Nvidia GTX 650.

I just got demo running under WinXP. Demo running OK for me. Vista did not like demo, Win7 started demo no problem. Going to start a new thread to talk about what I had to do to get demo to install in my old XP. Dinner getting cold, will post link in this post when I get new thread done later tonight.


Edit: Got new thread done:

Glad you guys like the prototype!

@X: Haha! Yeah we're aware of that bug. It's a bit silly but it's an early prototype and we found it funny. Just like the electric pole warping. :)

If there was a way to play it multiplayer, I'd surely want to race against the developers :P

This is awesome Bugbear, giving piece of Flatout history to the fans. I love this. The driving feels great in the prototype, love driving the Beetle.  :)

I was already planning to do something like that, but on Ultimate Carnage, there must be the topic somewhere on the UC section. But if the sneak peek already includes multiplayer, I will surely accept the challenge on there
