Obscure Gamers is once again looking to secure funding to continue our operations for another year, and to secure some more goodies for the community to research.
The total costs to renew OG's Museum status for another year will be £141.56 (including VAT).
We also have been offered two Heavy Rain discs much cheaper than they're listed for online the total cost to secure these is €300 + shipping costs. The seller already has to mail us stuff so they offered us them directly.
Recently we banned a user for trolling and being racist/breaking site rules, sadly they got butthurt and decided to pay Russian human spammers to target the site. We had to disable registration as I was too busy to fully fix the issue until now. The user was using a ton of Russian ISP's meaning banning the IP ranges wasn't helping and we were banning around 6 ranges a day from multiple Russian ISP's.

If you do plan on using this on an un-dumped HDD, I would highly suggest that you burn the client onto a disk, and boot from that rather than putting it onto your drive.

Alas, the day has come. This has been one of the most important items to me in my collection (as far as builds of games go). Flatout 2 is a game I needed during a tough time in my life and I adored it. I remember so many hours playing with friends and by myself. It was also one of my test games for low spec computer tests I did back when EEE PC's were a thing (remember those??). Pretty sure there's still a video on my channel from all those years ago doing exactly that.
