Any news on Vertx DA62

No it isn't. I fail to see where You came to that conclusion

Well, this Arezone product was released two days ago at SimMarket, and it never mentioned it was released specifically for the Carenado's DA-62. Arezone only mentions in the product description that the sounds are compatible with (but not that the sounds are to be used only with) the Carenado's DA-62 built-in sound effects. The news at FSElite are IMHO incorrect.

Cheers, Ed

Am I the only one who has been consistently searching "Vertx DA62" for the past month frantically searching the internet for an update? 😉

The answer to that would be no not by a long shot.😀

Hmmmm ... I wonder ... the delay could be a good thing ... and would be a "first" if it's what I think it is and hope it is ... might also explain the delay on the Carenado Falcon 50 ... or could be just my wishful thinking 🙂

Cheers, Rob.

Why does a P3D update come to mind?

Seriously? C'Mon MAN!

I'm waiting too and hoping for answers in each of these threads.  I just think the next answer we get is when it is released.  Hopefully soon.

Carenado Falcon? Did you mean Flysimware Falcon 50?

Carenado Falcon 50 is on the works. They recently released some shots of the progress.

Cheers, Ed

Either one, but Flysimware seemed a little resilient to P3D unique features so I hadn't consider them ... but there again, I guess Carenado is resilient to unique features of P3D also so who knows ... most 3rd party devs aren't willing to drop FSX yet as it still offers potential revenue so we still see many aircraft in P3D that are compromised to the FSX SDK as the lowest common denominator (meaning if it doesn't work in FSX it's not going to make it into P3D).  I can sorta understand the philosophy as sales numbers are very low so every sell counts ... but it's a little depressing to see this still going on 5+ years later.

Cheers, Rob.

Oh what a surprise... Announcement over a month ago (at the same time Carenado actually released their DA62) and no news since!  
Can the guy even be bothered to respond?
Think we will all be waiting for months still...

The flightsim "industry" is diverging along two distinct paths. One is the impatient and in my opinion sloppy practice of early access, in which the buyer is the guinea pig for testing a buggy product which is also missing key features. The other path is to test products via a closed beta approach. This process is time consuming but frustrates the average user who is impatient for a new product. Every so often the closed beta approach fails because the product was not widely tested on a variety of systems.

Neither testing procedure is infallible, but the better products tend to be associated with closed beta tests.

yet more 4.4 teasing from RobA 😉. I feel there will be good things coming!

A lot of developers who are covered under the P3d4 NDA are playing the same game by referring to release delays as being the work of some unknown mysterious force. It takes time to convert textures to be PBR compatible, so expect a lull in add-on releases followed by a flood.

It surprises me very much, too. And as you say, it seems the guy is not urged to make any update news, and this can tell us that the "promissed" three weeks is a thing of the past and now nobody has a clue on how well or bad this aircraft is being developed, if that's still the case.

Cheers, Ed

I read nothing about promised in the articles.  I read about a hope to release in next few weeks.  That's not a promise.

Hi Jay:

And I can add a practice that at least one developer I remember employed back at the end of 2016, by releasing a product saying it was almost finished, at full price (around 60 bucks). One year and a half later, a stable version was finally released after a long optional beta testing period.

I think the flightsim community should ban that way of doing "business".

Cheers, Ed

I'll happily wait if it's what I hope the delay is about ... but there again I'm pretty patient, too much to do so little time ... except when it comes to drivers and driving, way too many slow and/or distracted drivers, but other than that flaw, I'm pretty patient 🙂

Cheers, Rob.

Any delay could also be due to getting the website up and running and secure.

Not only that but there are posts that have attempted to keep the AVSIM members with questions updated. I only decided to get involved because I wanted to assure those with concerns that the project was moving forward and progressing well.

I'll happily wait too if what you hope for is what I think it is. A rough idea how long you are expecting having to happily wait...? 😎

Rob you need to get all those drivers certified by Microsoft's WHQL.

Not so much anymore, I prefer to be the driver (I raced for 14 years RW) not the fan.

That's probably the more likely, but I can hope.

Yes I have a pretty good idea of how long but no idea about Rob's project (DA62) ... I'm just hoping and being optimistic but without any expectations.

Cheers, Rob.

While I am as impatient for this release as everyone else 🙂 I’m also cogniscient of the fact that it’s extremely difficult to predict the exact release date for any piece of complex software while still in the development phase.

The very reason why developers don’t do this is illustrated by this thread where someone has tried to helpfully throw out their opinion on approximately when it may be released and then someone has said there is now a promised release date. 

I’ve found that those who continue to apply public pressure for information or a firm release date are also those who are first to complain when the quality is not 100% upon release.

If I was the developer of this add-on, and putting in a 110% effort to release something spectacular (as I know this developer does) then I would be getting pretty annoyed reading this thread.
