If you buy any, don't forget to upgrade to the downloadable version, (...)

 

 

If you buy these DVDs from FSS, the cross-grade license is *NOT* required. From the same page:

 

"Customers who have purchased Orbx boxed DVD products from The FlightSim Store should NOT purchase cross-grade licenses, rather you are entitled to "purchase" the download versions free of charge."

 

Once the box purchase has been processed by FSS, just "buy" the download version of the same title(s) - they will be provided at no additional cost (price will be zero then) from FSS.

 

The cross-grade license only applies to box purchases from other stores.

You're absolutely right.

 

That being said, most of the DVD have an older version of the airport if I am not mistaken so you have to "purchase"  (see paragraph in red) the downloadable version. If it is a FSS DVD, the "purchase" is free.  

 

I am not sure that the DVD purchase would automatically trigger the downloadable version to be put into your account otherwise. This is crucial with the forthcoming OrbXDirect transfer.

Yes, purchasing the DVD from FSS does also grant you the download version for free. After purchasing the DVDs, you have to purchase the download version, but at a price of 0$. That's how it went with my DVD purchases from FSS.

 

Also on the postage cost, FSS' automatic system calculates a too high rate. To Europe at least. When I purchased from them in the past, I found out that the stamp on package was cheaper than what I paid for. But I contacted FSS support about this issue and they refunded me the difference in my FSS account, to use with the next purchase.

The DVDs are back at FSS, AU$2.50 - but BEWARE - I don't see the option for a free download of the latest (P3D/FSX-SE) version so I suspect you will get only the base FSX version on DVD.

Cheers
