FSX Acceleration coming closer…

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

As of now the beta team is downloading the final version of FSX Acceleration/XPack.  It’ll hit the streets (boxed version only) on October 23, word is.

The beta team is permitted to talk about the final version (not interim betas or the beta process) and publish screenshots once we have it installed, which I will do by tomorrow.  Most of my comments will be around enhancements offered in this release, and other implications, not the missions itself.  There are 30 missions in this release, making it great value for anyone who enjoys adventure and challenges.  Since 99% of my sim time is on development, there are other folks who will do a much better job than I commenting on those.

I suspect there will be confusion, too, which Phil has worked hard to clear up on his blog post.  XPack will include a DX10 “preview”, a set of DX10 enhancements that may not be compatible with some elements of addon sceneries.  The user can turn these features, as a set, on or off.  XPack will cost money.  Service Pack 2, will also inlcude these DX10 enhancements and some DX9 fixes, and will be out before Christmas.  SP2 will be a no-charge download.
