I have not applied any patches or otherwise modified any of the game's files. I am putting it in the right place, it is an exe, it is not hard. :P I like to think that I know at least a little about what I am doing since I have previously taken Mac installs of games, copied them to a windows running box and applied any needed files extracted from updates&such w/ cracked exes to make it function under windows. :)
When I use the same file you list from gamecopyworld after the intro movies it crashes and displays a little dialog saying "Runtime error" and "Fatal error" in the title bar.
A question though, that crack is dated 07-12-2004 on the GCW page and the FlatOut.exe that was installed from my CD is dated May 25th 2005.
Is it possible that they made a quick last ditch attempt at preventing piracy for the run that mine is from or is your original unpatched exe of the same date?
And so you know, I do appreciate these attempts at help. :)
It looks like the 1.1 patch is from Dec 2004.. I need to find out what version I have.
