Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Pre order question

Recommended Posts

Hiya, just a quick query. If I pre order the otter extended as a boxed edition, can I access the download so I can fly before September?

Thanks

Matt

Thanks, as for why I don't buy the download, I will probably

Get it now, just a fear of downloads I suppose.

Matt,

There is no reason to be feared of downloads. That's how I buy 100% of my FS software (and not only).

Especially here at the Aerosoft shop all sales are as professional as it can be and of course 100% safe.

And just to mention it: If you buy a download product once you will of cause be able to redownload it whenever you want and as often as you want.

Matt, while I would be the last to tell you boxed versions are no good (my colleague who runs the boxed department is way larger than I am and he has tattoos) I can assure you that it is safe. Download sales are a matter of confidence, and we pride ourselves by having a 100% clean record in delivery. As far as we know there is not a single customer who paid for a download and did not get the files. And we got tens of thousands of customers.

Also, nothing to stop you downloading the file, then burning the whole thing to a CD or DVD if you want. The main difference in the boxed version is the box, and the delivery charge

(I'm also large, with tattoos...) :P

That's just the way I do it!

Download it, install it and keep a backup copy (together with a word-document with the software key) on a DVD for the situation of a HDD failure.

Yes I know that I could download it again from the shop if that happens but I am obviously an old fashioned guy.

On the other hand: Now I have a copy of Twin Otter 1.0 on DVD while 1.01 is already available... So maybe I am somewhat outdated... :mecry_s:

But luckily you can download the update :P.

The other advantage of burning your own is you can put all your fave repaints alongside, text files for suggested mods or tweaks, even screenshots or videos.

And you can use the money you save to get some more ink... :chairfall_s:

It depends: Are you large, with tattoos? :hi2_s:

Gotcha

Right, so the answer for kingboby's original question must, by implication be...

...only if you're large, with tattoos.

Gentlemen, our work here is done :lookatthat_s:
