Release Day

Recommended Posts

Hello,I imagine that quite a number of people are going to be purchasing/downloading the NGX on release day. Are the people at PMDG sure that they will be able to meet demand?Thanks

I am pretty sure Ryan told us that the forums may crash because of over capacity but the store certainly will not.Regards

In the past couple of years we have made major upgrades to our ecommerce system hardware. Capacity is enormous...

It only has 1.6 million processor cores, and 1.6 petabytes of ram, running linux... so it can't :(

Ha! I think with the amount of orders they are expecting, the servers have all been prepared already.

We do not expect problems with the store - there's a lot of horsepower already on tap for it - far far more than we had back when the FS9 400 release crashed it.If the forums do down (which we hope doesn't happen, but it may), go to our facebook page for updates from us. We're pretty sure our users can't crash Facebook. tongue.gif

I don't think it is a good idea to glue it together after slicing it in pieces. The reason for that is simple: Corrupt files may be the issue when installing the "package", however if we succeed installing it, windshears may be a problem and cut the wings off since it's beeing held in place by glue. :)
