PMDG777 P3D pre-purchase ?

Recommended Posts

PMDG777 P3D pre-purchase?
Can it be installed and used in both the P3Dv3 and P3Dv4 on the same PC?

Yes it can. If you have both versions installed, you will find that the 777 installer asks you if you want to install in V3, V4 or both.

 

Not sure what you mean with pre-purchase though.-

I may be wrong, but I interpreted this as the OP asking before he purchases the 777, whether he can use the v3 and v4 versions.

I'm still scratching my head, but it seems like you guys get it and have taken care of it, so... *thumbup*

it was just a P3D / PMDG777 pre-purchase question.

Thank for verifying one purchase will install to both (not one or the other) P3Dv3 and P3Dv4 on my PC.

Don't worry, that makes two of us....  

 

I'll go watch Tarzan to see if it's clearer afterwards :D

Hey, so I'm using PMDG FSX-SE and if I want to changed to Prepar3D V4, do I need to repurchase my PMDG aircraft or is it an update for FSX-SE

Yes,

The move from FSX to P3d requires a new purchase.

Sometimes I have seen pilots ask pre-purchase questions prior to spending money .. examples:

Ah! Got it! Thanks for clarifying.

FSX and P3D (formerly ESP) are entirely separate platforms, meant for different purposes and are treated as such. Following that, a separate license is required.

ESP?

P3D was initially Microsoft ESP - the non-entertainment version of FSX. It's not a new product at all. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that none of the community would have even noticed it if FSX wasn't initially cut off. FSX went to DTG as FSX:SE. ESP went to LM, which was re-branded as P3D.

Oh, I know about the origins of P3D, but wasn't sure what ESP was. Apparently, Enterprise Simulation Platform.

I'd argue that if you knew the origins of P3D, you'd know what ESP was. That's like saying you know what the origins of Boeing, but question what a Clipper was.

Isn't a clipper what you use to groom your dog or cut your hair?

Wow, the attitude. Man, you really need to learn how to relax in interaction with paying customers. What you are doing, won't get you too far, as our world is small one, and that stuff doesn't get you far.

I simply did not know what ESP stood for, that's all. Thanks for showing your vast superiority on the forum. I am impressed.

Sure thing, happy to help. After reading your initial post several more times I realized what your question was. No worries.

I don't see any attitude. I do see your heaping amounts of sarcasm though. You asked what ESP was. I explained it, and then you said you already knew what it was, contradicting your earlier position of having to ask the question, or seemingly so. Your question was not specific enough to indicate that you simply didn't know the acronym until after the fact. You can very clearly see that I was confused in my last response.

I, of course, had a part in this escalation, but don't hold it over and vaguely threaten when you were unclear from the start. This is aviation. Clarity is key. If you fail to clarify, stuff happens, and you have to be prepared to deal with the fallout. I am. It would appear that, by your reaction, you're pushing all of the blame my way, when this isn't the case.
