Essential improvements[edit]

OutRun 2 FXT[edit]

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.

Restore missing lens flare & bloom effects[edit]

A simple oversight with the PC conversion caused the lens flare and bloom effects from the console versions to go missing.
Instructions[2]
  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[edit]

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz, even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.

  2. Copy SpecialK32.dll to the installation folder.
  3. Rename SpecialK32.dll to d3d9.dll.
  4. Start the game and exit.
  5. Open d3d9.ini in the installation folder.
  6. Change TargetFPS=0.0 to TargetFPS=60.0.

OutRun 2 FXT: Overlay graphics occasionally popping up[edit]

OutRun 2 FXT includes a few new overlay graphics replacing their original counterparts, however this feature currently only works properly on fullscreen 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]

    "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!"
