Orbx yesterday announced that their DVD Crossgrade service will be back from the 1st of October following a period of downtime.
In a post to the Orbx forums they wrote: “After many months the DVD Crossgrade service will be available as of 1 October 2017. Development of the backend for this has taken longer than anticipated as we focused on other priorities such as improvements to FTXC3 , infrastructure changes as well as ObjectFlow development for P3Dv4. Regardless, we thank you for your patience and understanding.”
“The cost of the Crossgrade is $3.99 AUD per DVD. As it was with FSS, the cost of the license is to recover administration, fees and bandwidth expenses. No discounts will apply to the license transfer.”
What is Crossgrade?
“The license allowed customers to purchase a Crossgrade of their DVD to a digital version. When we were still producing DVDs, they were made for FSX (not the Steam edition) and in some later batches, P3Dv1. The Crossgrade gave these customers access to what was then “triple installers” – FSX,P3Dv1 & P3Dv2. Those customers now have access to FSX, FSX:SE and P3D versions 1 to 3 either through FSS (if they have not transferred over to OrbxDirect) or in OrbxDirect. Note that customers still have access to updates for their DVDs here.”
