Exactly What Happened to PSS??????

Recommended Posts

......What was their downfall....internal personal problems???...Lack of creative intellect????....Lack of time to develop???.....or just time for the team to move on...I was shocked to see the main support got to an Unofficial status...

Don't get me started, PSS is a four letter word to me!An 'unofficial' PSS support forum has been set up on AVSIM by some volunteers to try and provide support when PSS pulled the plug. I'd have a read through that to get the full picture.

Their 757 failed to sell because of all the problems we told them about, incuding design flows during the previews. They kept telling us that's not true, that it's fixed or that some other user told them its the best thing ever since sliced bread with extra butter.So pretty much, not listening to the customers/potential ones took its tollother problems with them were lack of patches for known bugs

Their panels were second to none for those of us who've been around the block a few times!I still fly their Concorde in FS9. One of the best packages they ever produced.

flynman3:you have the product. it is installed in your FS folders.look at the PSS support forum for where each item for each aircraft is located. you can copy these and make a backup for future installs.--

FWIW the 757 release was nothing short of a fiasco. Block this, block that, no working FMC, total lack of loading tool.I did buy it when it was (sort of) complete and I found it to be very flyable but I can understand why that particular release upset a lot of people.

You asked "...What was their downfall...." I don't see what that hasd to do with what's on your hard disk.

I think the group fell apart from within - all the public saw were the symptoms thereof.regards,Mark
