GOG version .bfs files extracted into \data, causes problems

Post by 0x6A7232 » 16 Feb 2015, 02:51

Hey,

The GOG version of the game has the common1 and common2 files extracted into \data, and the patched version from the Downloads section ( fov2plus-aio-1.3-setup.exe ) causes flatout.exe to give the error "could not query file size for bfs archive common1.bfs" and quit.

Meantime, I'm downloading this version: Flatout(with Fov2 and online ready) via torrent, but is there another solution to this problem?


Thanks

EDIT: Just to be clear, I did install the patch to where I had the GOG version installed. This happened with another install on another computer as well, so it's not just a borked install. flatout worked fine on both computers before the patch (albeit with no network capability).

Hey!
You can find a special FOv2Plus for GOG.com version at the bottom of the Downloads section.
AIO bundle and regular FOv2Plus are not meant to work with the GOG version.
