#1 rule in software development: It is done when it's done.Unless, of course, you're working for a certain impatient publisher. Then it's done when they tell you it should be done.

In an effort to bring simulation closer to the real world ALL Airbus simulations are now two years delayed due to wiring problems. Everyone go get your legal teams ready to review what recourse you may have...-Paul

They said 2nd quarter...but don't hold their feet to the fire, because these predictions are usually wrong

I'm sure we'll see it long before that MD-11 is released.

Nice try, Graeme Butler, but no cigar for you. ;)First of all the Q1 statement was an error, and even I gasped when I read it. It has since been corrected.As to Q2, never forget "2nd quarter" does not mean the first day of it, just during it. Last time I checked, Q2 ends on June 30.Actually, I have never believed in announcing release time frames. However, this was not my call to make.Why?Because if you say "Spring of 2005", some folks think that means the first day of Spring which, of course is not correct. It means any time during that season.After a while it is almost funny. Someone says that the product will be out in the Winter of 2004, and on Decemeber 21 you'll have folks posting: "Well, it is Winter, where is the product". I guess we really need to say: "Sometime DURING...."I never realized that a quarter or a season occurs on just one day of the year.;)After almost 10 years in this business I am so used used to these types of threads that I do not even know why I bother resonding to the snide remarks such as:"The Airbus you will be waiting for..."I dare say that we will have it out before the end of Q2, and if we miss it, it will not be by much time.Ya' really gotta remember that we read this stuff. :-lolRegards, Lou Bettihttp://www.dreamfleet2000.com/AXP/AXPforumbanner.jpg

Dear Lou,Sorry that my remark upset you - I guess I should have added a smiley to indicate it was "in jest". ;) I have purchased ALL Dreamfleet and Reality XP and Flight Scenery products and I have no doubt the Airliner XP will be a top quality add-on. :-)I do, however, think that you left yourself wide open with that slogan. :+

I find it a little difficult to forget the aggressive claims that were made by this project team right on the eve of the Feelthere A320 release. First it was "in beta." Then later it mysteriously reverted to "pre-beta." A Q1 release was widely quoted as a competing product beat them to the streets, then "oops, a mistake, we meant Q2."If the ATR project is any indication we can get our "The Airbus we're still waiting for" sig blocks ready....for those who don't remember, F1 and Dreamfleet showed up at the AVSIM convention in Reading PA announcing a "without fail, take it to the bank" Christmas release that year, and it released almost a year later than that. For a bunch that doesn't like to establish (unrealistic) release dates, they sure haven't seemed to learn their lesson.I just think the flurry of AirlinerXP vaporware timed right at the release of the competing Feelthere product to be a bit of unethical guerrilla info-warfare. I don't respect what they did and how they did it one little bit.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile
