Screwed by smaller store :/

Recommended Posts

I just brought the Learjet 35 from SimShack.net (its listed as a reseller on the product page) and the purchase went without a hitch but the latest version they have is V2.9 which does not work in P3D v4, whereas flightsimware has released a V4 version of their product on their page (V3 of the product is the latest.) This wouldn't be too much of an issue but I only have a Prepar3d V4 license (and my fsx is so broken, it crashes every 5 mins) so I'm screwed until simshack finally updates their download. I contacted flightsimware directly but their was no luck with that he just said we can't give you a direct link for the new version and you have to download it from the store you brought it from and he mentioned that it usually takes around 1-4 weeks, not a big deal until I see and its almost been a month since the latest version of the LJ 35 came out. So yeah :/ this is annoying.

 

I basically made this post to try and warn consumers from buying from really small re sellers and to maybe get FSM or Simshack to try and fix this stupid issue.

Some other shops only updated it last and this week, too, and since the release happened just 3 weeks ago, this is well within the "usually 1-4 weeks".

But yes, it can be annoying, and the general recommendation is to buy directly from the primary source if you want to have early access to updates.

Meanwhile I suggest you contact simshack in a friendly manner to remind them that you need the update to be able to use it at all, maybe that helps accelerating the process :)

PC aviator still has not updated it. 

 

I just downloaded it from PCA.  It is the new 3.0 version.

Edit to add:  This was from the US PC Aviator.

Some retailers are just slower than others when it comes to updating product versions.

I had the same problem with SimShack.net, they did not update for more messages that I sent them.

until I talk to flysimware support and explain my case and I registered on their sales page to be able to download the updates because SimShack.net did not respond either to me or to them.

Good news, after 5 days of silence, they sent me a ticket response saying that it will be updated first thing tomorrow morning.
