Prepar3D v5 Released

Recommended Posts

Represented as performance improved.  Has anyone seen minimum and recommended system specs vor v5?  I have the v4 system specs.  Any changes from v4.  My FSX is now a CTD regular.  I face a fresh installation, or a move to P3D.  My current system specs are in my footer below.  I wish to postpone a new system build until MSFS system specs are published and more new hardware is released

Haha: "That site can't be reached." Appreciate it though.

I am going to try and download later on as I have far more pressing matters as hand at the moment as an existing Windows 10 x64 Pro, has just decided it needs to be re-activated, and that after having been activated and upgraded from Windows 7 four years ago! Besides, the servers are taking a hammering.

I have just read the entire contents to date of this thread and I haven't stopped chucking to myself 

Everybody moaning about the download speeds being pretty awful 

DOESN'T EVERYONE REALISE THE WORLD AND ITS MOTHER ARE ON THE INTERNET AT THE MOMENT!! 

There is a pandemic going on out there so its pretty obvious things are going to be VERY slow  😳

Are they really? Because my speedtest currently says 190/30... I should complain, because I have 250mbit.

Oh but sorry, no... I am downloading P3D AND running speedtest at 190 at the same time 🤣

Wow - Site is fully hammered.  Must be serious fans buying the sim today.  Lol  for once I actually have to wait on release day.

 

To be fair most people are at home right now.

Lads, you're just like the word not allowed toilet paper hoarders. You are wrecking the servers by taking more bandwidth than you need!!!

Please calm down. There is NO NEED to download this right now. Go outside, breathe some fresh air. Prepar3D will still be there when you get back.

This is important, as I REALLY want to be the first to get v5 in the air - like, right now - and y'all are ruining my download.

@Sethos, I think the servers are robust, there's just no server that is made to cope with this many 'F5' keypresses. 😉

Ah, this has all the ambience of an old-timey PMDG release day.  Goosebumps.  😜

What I learned in those days of old is that downloads go a lot faster in the company of a nice bottle of 14-year-old Balvenie single-malt.  🍸

Cheers!
