  • Game can now run in borderless windowed mode; mouse cursor will now be hidden while game is active
  • Adds a built-in framelimiter to prevent game from speeding up
  • FPS can now be partially unlocked, drawing at unlocked FPS while game runs at 60FPS tickrate
  • Fixed C2C ranking scoreboards not updating on Steam and other releases due to faulty anti-piracy checks
  • Allows disabling vehicle LODs to reduce the ugly pop-in of them
  • Effects like engine backfiring will now appear properly when using controllers
  • Restored XInput rumble code from the Xbox release
  • Reduced z-fighting & distant object pop-in by improving Z-buffer precision
  • Can force anisotropic filtering level & enable transparency supersampling, reducing aliasing around the edges of the track
  • Fixes broken lens flare effect by making game load it from correct path

OutRun 2 FXT

Deprecated, use Outrun2006Tweaks instead for more up-to-date fixes and enhancements not covered by FXT.
Replacement configuration tool that adds XInput rumble support, custom resolutions, windowed mode, additional camera views and more. Can be downloaded here.
Running FXTConfig.exe as admin for is required for first time use to apply its settings. Launch the game using OR2FXT.exe instead of its stock executable to ensure the modifications stick.
Before attempting to install texture replacement mods with OutRun FXT, make sure the <path-to-game>\FXTcfg\texpacks\original folder is empty and your game's files are not flagged as read-only to avoid errors.

Fix broken audio track

The track, "Rush a Difficulty" in the PC port is missing the first 2 seconds for some reason.
  1. Download the SoundtrackFix package.
  2. Extract contents of the archive to <path-to-game>.
  3. Run SoundtrackFix.bat.

Restore missing lens flare & bloom effects

A simple oversight with the PC conversion caused the lens flare and bloom effects from the console versions to go missing.
Fixed with Outrun2006Tweaks automatically.
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Media\ folder.
  2. Look for the lens_flare_offset.bin file and copy it.
  3. Paste this file into the <path-to-game>\Common\ folder.

Issues fixed

OutRun 2 FXT: Overlay graphics occasionally popping up

OutRun 2 FXT includes a few new overlay graphics replacing their original counterparts, however this feature currently only works properly on fullscreen mode and it breaks when forcing window mode. Disabling Enable Overlay from the OutRun 2 FXT configuration tool may be preferable as the updated overlay graphics clashes with the stock GUI assets.[7]

"Unable to create Direct3D Device with current settings" Error when using Outrun 2 FXT

Delete outrun2006.ini
This is caused by a conflict in the existing configuration file of the original game with Outrun 2 FXT and causes the game to crash on launch.
  1. Delete outrun2006.ini located in <path-to-game>
  2. Launch FXTConfig.exe and save changes to create a new outrun2006.ini.

    "All this art is great, but without an engine to power it, it’s not going to be much of a game. To this end we’ve been using our in-house Sunshine engine to make it all whizz around at high speed. If you’ve played our OutRun conversions, VT3 or Sega Superstars Tennis, you’ve already played with Sunshine!"
