Newer PTA version and older preset compatibility?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to ask a question which probably falls into noob category, but been unable to find a clear answer via searches so here goes. Right now I don't tend to create presets myself, but have used some nice ones from various sources, which I may just fettle a little in terms of basic lighting settings to suit my setup.

I'm now on PTA 2.67 for P3D v4.5 HF2, and what I'd like to understand is backward compatibility with older presets. So say if I had a preset created under 2.66 which I liked, can that be used safely by 2.67?
Equally what are the pros and cons of doing so?

Right now my assumption is a later PTA version may have extra fields available which an earlier preset won't map to, but all its existing values may be recognised by 2.67, possibly leaving a few (new field) gaps to consider.
Also, if 2.67 happily opens an earlier preset, if it is saved is it then 2.67 compliant as it were?

Hope that makes sense and any guidance appreciated.

Cheers
Dave

The preset should work.

Gerard is a better person to chime in because his presets are the best you can get for PTA.

Many thanks for the replies, that's helpful. Could I also ask for location of Gerald's latest PTA presets?

cheers
