Does changing flow.bin get rid of patch changes?

    I just recently changed the flow.bin back to pre-patch for some mods and i was wondering that if changing the flow.bin effected the changes that the patches applied. Such as the graphic enhancements, 11/11 bug, etc..

    I am not sure what exactly the flow.bin is for, all I know is that the newer versions in patch 1.1 and 1.2 cause savegame corruption but I do not know why. I don't do any programming so I can't help explain it. (F1 2010's savegame fix was the same approach I think)

    11/11 bug ==> cars folder
    graphic updates?? WTF?? I don't see anything except -10 FPS. (FPS goes up again if you put the old exe)

    The new flow is made just to "stop" modding. It didn't work tho.. :D

    Flow Bin is where you throw the old and broken flows.
