Flatout 2 (GOG/Linux) has no sound anymore

Hi there,

I’ve always ran Flatout 2 (GOG release, Linux version) without the slightest issue, but now there’s suddenly no sound anymore. I love this game so this is a huge bummer. Other games and applications aren’t affected.

I’ve tried reinstalling the libraries mentioned on GOG, and tried reinstalling the game, but to no avail. I’ve ran some system updates since the last time I played, but other than that I haven’t made any changes (as far as I remember).

I’m sure there should be some solution to this problem, but as I’ve never ran into sound issues I wouldn’t know how (I’m using pulse audio). Could you please assist?

Thank you!

You’re not the only one, it seems.

You are a bit mixed up Fallout and Flatout :grinning:
Also Flatout 2 is working natively in Linux i.e. without Proton or Wine.

Ha ha, oops. It appears the GOG “native” version is a wine wrapper. It might actually be better to use the Windows version with Proton. It’s got a Platinum rating on protondb.

Oh really? Not so native after all then. I’ll give it a shot, and let you know if it works. Thanks!
