SP1 relase

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Is the PMDG team/beta testers are able to say if they relase the SP1 before the -300ER ?

 

I would like to fly and see the FBW and some small bugs fixed before buy the ER. In my opinion is a good idea releasing the SP1 before

 

Thanks,

No? I think they made it very clear that the SP1 will be released together with the -300ER? So a longer wait ahead for all......

And if you are sceptical to buy then just get SP1 first and try it out. You dont need 300ER for SP1.

Guy, just be friendlier. He was just asking so cool down a little bit. I´m one of the guys who wants the release of SP1 first, if the -300ER expansion isn´t finished. The SP1 is in Beta right now, not so the -300ER. So it could be that it´ll take another couple of month until we get it. Where is the problem to release the SP1 after the last Betatests? We all bought the PMDG 777-200LR and PMDG is working on an update/ service pack for this airplane so if the SP1 is ready: Please release it ;)...!

I think PMDG have said multiple times now that the release of SP1 will be before the 300er. Check the 1st of april posts and te WX preview one, should be in there.

 

Doesn't make much sence either. But I could be wrong, it is saturday ffs :).

Well pretty much the opposite, they said that the 300ER is waiting for the SP1 and that they will release together.

Somebody made a mistake Thomas. No need to be assertive.

 

This forum makes me chuckle sometimes.

Anyway I agree that, being now clear that SP1 and the -300ER will be released together, it will take some extra time for the SP1 to be released, while it could have been released shortly and this does not look fair! I don't understand why they don't release the SP1 as soon as ready, why must those who don't want to pick the -300ER wait for the -300ER?? I would understand the opposite, considering that the -300ER is based on the SP1.

 

EDIT: ops, sorry, I did not remember what Rob wrote in the same thread where he states that the SP1 and -300ER will be released together. He wrote that the -300ER is not holding up the SP1!

Martin: if it was just this once, or even a few times, I really wouldn't have cared at all. However, some fellow forum users here have quite a history of making assumptions based on nothing at all, or just plain rude posts. You won't ever see me making one of those posts in answer to an "innocent bystander".

I'm still at a loss for words as to how many time this has been answered, but nobody seems to either be:

  • Paying attention; or
  • Using logic

 

 

Let's use logic collectively, here, shall we?

 

The 777-200LR/F is a base package.

The 777-300ER will be an addition to it.

Why would you release something that would add onto something that hasn't been "fixed?"

 

"Hi, yeah, so the foundation of this building seems to be faulting, but we really do need to add more stuff onto it to compound the effort of fixing the original issues..."

I think you've got your logic reversed.

 

They aren't asking for the ER first, they are asking for SPI first. Thus...

 

Your base package [your buildings foundation] is fixed first with a service pack.

 

Then the ER is released.

 

In accordance with your "logic" it seems to me.

 

However...if you were being ironic, and implying that PMDG wouldn't be silly enough to not complete the service pack first, before the ER is complete... then that would imply they have the capacity to release SP1 prior, so why not do that...

 

I warn you, after another bout of insomnia, all kinds of weirdness is due to emanate from my befuddled mind.

I'm sure that, if they had a chance and the 300ER was truly going to take longer, they would, but that's not the case:

and point #2 spells it out quite definitively!!

 

This depends on point  #4   of said link

Which was...

 

4) No, the 300ER isn't "holding up" SP1. In fact, quite to the contrary the 300ER is dependent upon SP1 which is not quite finished yet.

 

 

It seems to me, that what can be done in regard to the ER, without a fully implemented SP1, is being done. While "elements" of the ER that are dependant on SP1, are awaiting it's completion.

 

So quite reasonable I suppose that both would be complete, and thus released simultaneously.

I'm looking forward to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and after the celebrations from the closing ceremony have become just a fuzzy memory I'll be back here reviewing this thread for updates for a certain flight sim 777 SP1 and -300ER release  :ph34r:

I read in another post that you beta testers are testing only the SP1 and not the -300ER, therefore I guess you will need time to test the -300ER after the SP1 is over. Thus all those who fly only the -200 and don't mind about the -300ER, will have to wait that the testing of the -300ER is done!  Point #4 of Rob's post starts not convincing me...

Yes, i think this, too!!! But i can understand that they need a finished and tested SP1, because this is important for the -300ER expansion. It´s a pity, but i really think that we have to wait.

Agree, but why not releasing the SP1 as soon as finished?

Rob has stated himself that the -300ER is NOT holding back SP1, but it is rather the other way around. Hence why they haven't released either yet...

I know, that's just what is being discussed here. If the SP1 is holding back the -300ER, this means that as soon as the SP1 is ready both will be released? And what about the beta testing of the -300ER?
