Outrun 2 FXT 2.5 Released!
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:12:13 am »
As promised here is a minor, yet important update to the wrapper.  The only new feature is joystick override, which allows you to force the joystick/gamepad/wheel you wish to use if the game keeps defaulting to the first joystick.  Oh and hey, I managed to update the website and add the wrapper there!

Find the release on the old DragonKing website:  http://dragonking.arcadecontrols.com/index.php

Thanks guys.  Just let me know if you run into any new issues.  I only added in 5 or 6 lines of code, but you never know.

Looks cool.  But I'm trying to find a PC version online to purchase.  Seems like Steam released and then pulled it.  :-\

Yeah Sega lost the Ferrari license some time ago, so you won't find it anywhere digitally.  At least not legally.

Cheapest, I've seen is $20 from the UK for a boxed version.  Any idea if it's the same release worldwide?

It's a far cry from $2.50 on Steam, but it's doable.

There is a multi region dvd version... that is the version I use.  From all reports, the exe is pretty much the same regardless of versions though.... they just added some additional language packs for a few of the euro releases.

It's really not too hard to find a copy via 'other means'. I've got two legit copies of the PC version downloaded on my two regular PCs, but I had to acquire a third via less salubrious means when I wanted to stick another copy on my MAME bartop several year later to incorporate it into a 3 player Outrun C2C network.

I think at this point, for research into the patch I have every version of the game ever released.  I didn't pay for all of them, but I've paid for enough to where I don't feel guilty about it. 

I'm hoping some day it will pay off and I can incorporate the extra stages into the pc version, but at this point it might be less man hours to re-create the game engine and all of it's content from scratch.   How long have I been working on this now, 4 years?  ;)

Yeah, likewise. As well as the PC version I've previously bought 2 copies of Outrun 2 and 2 copies of Outrun C2C on the Xbox and Outrun Online Arcade on the PS3, so I feel I've contributed enough to not feel bad about the couple of versions I didn't pay for.

 :laugh: If Sega ever regain the Ferrari license (unlikely I know) they should definitely stick you on the payroll with the intent of creating an 'Ultimate' version of Outrun 2, with ALL the content from ALL of the games.

Thank you for the release Howard.  I may not get a chance to try it until the holidays but your efforts are very appreciated and I am looking forward to trying it out.

Happy Holidays gentlemen!

I've been meaning to come on here and let you guys know how much I've been enjoying O2K6 with Howard's FXT patch recently. I've been away from racing games since around April so when I came back to play this, it put a huge smile on my face the entire time. I don't know if it's just placebo or the fact that I've been away from the game for so long, but something about the steering input to me feels more...."connected" if you will. The car seems to be responding to my analog steering inputs better than I remember it. The steering feels so smooth and "on the money" so to speak. There isn't even a hint of deadzone and it feels really great. Perhaps I finally got the settings dialed it to where I want them right before I stopped playing many months ago and forgot how good it felt lol.

Anyway I will grab this new version of FXT shortly and try it out.

Howard.....going by your comments above, I'm not sure but are you confirming that the Steam version of OR2K6 works with FXT now? I remember trying it a while back and it didn't inject into the the steam version at all, only the CD version. If not, can you please consider adding support to the Steam version?

The CD version has been known to give me odd graphical glitches every now and then. For example when going from one stage to the next, sometimes the camera will suddenly jump to some weird zoomed out helicopter view of the track for like 2 seconds, and then jump back to the normal camera view. Very jarring and bizarre.

Heck, I remember this even happened on my copy of the original Xbox verison many years ago. The Steam version however, never exhibited any of these issues.

You could be right on that... been working on this for years after all, I can't remember everything.  ;)  I don't have a problem looking at the steam version, but unless it's easily fixable.... man.... I've probably got 70 memory addresses I alter at this point.

If Sega ever regain the Ferrari license (unlikely I know) they should definitely stick you on the payroll with the intent of creating an 'Ultimate' version of Outrun 2, with ALL the content from ALL of the games.

Arcade-style LAN menu's would still be great, so that my twin cab would be able to play O2K6 like a real twin cabinet with the arcade menu's instead of having to create/join games PC style...
I believe an attempt has been made by Howard a while ago, but I assume this is somehow halted?

Thanks Howard. I recently changed my wheels and re-did everything today. Took a bit of working but I got there in the end

It wasn't halted.... I just quit working on it for now.  This one is an all-consuming she-beast of a project and if I don't take breaks periodically I get burnt out.  When I stopped I couldn't reliably manipulate the menu variables so when I start up again I have to fix that and then the rest of the code will be rather trivial. 

Boomslang:  Yeah it's fun isn't it.  A lot of my projects rarely get used by me, but every time I fire up fxt I have a blast.

I'm having issues with the game running way too fast. I'm running full screen 6060x1080. My desktop is running at 5760x1080 @ 144Hz and I am guessing that at some point in the game goes windowed and back to full screen but then runs at the desktop resolution at insanely high speeds. Aside from just setting my desktop up to 6060x1080 @ 60 are there any solutions to this?

Most modern video cards have a gaming profile section where you can set specific video card settings on a per game basis.  Add outrun 2006 as a profile and force vsync.... that should do it, unless you have your monitor set to a really high refresh rate.

You may post here with any questions,I don't think anyone is going to skype or facebook chat you.

Read the readme and work some stuff out, everyone else has managed to get this working without needing video chat run through's

ok I write here
first problem
when I start the game and go to command settings, the selection menu scrolls on itself continuously and does not stop ... from top to bottom ... and if I try to configure the accelerator and brake it does not give me time to do it. ..
I have a g27
I was hoping someone would help me in real time maybe with my screen sharing, or have a step by step guide, from the logitech profiler to the FXT settings
I love this game and I would like it to work better!
thank you all :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

The clutch pedal causes the the menu to scroll.

If you can hold th clutch pedal exactly halfway down while in the menu, it will not scroll.

I'm gonna have to read up on all this now...i have a backed up version non-steam version of OR 2006 C2C or whatever it was called for PC. I hate that the extra songs were locked in the one mode...i want to play with Turbo Outrun tracks!
