toady is another good day for P3D v4, RAAS 64-bit for P3D v4 has been released and is now available for sale on the FS2Crew website!
here are all the details from the post…
RAAS for P3D V4 has been released and is now available for sale on the FS2Crew website!
In our opinion, 64 bit flight simming is the future of flight simulation owing to the many, many benefits it offers. We therefore encourage our users to upgrade to P3D V4.
FSX has had its day. It’s time to move forward.
P3D V4 requires a new purchase, but we are offering 5 euros off to previous RAAS customers. Use coupon code: RAAS64 on the checkout page.
Some of you will probably ask why we cannot give out the P3D V4 version for free.
Its a fair question.
The long and short answer is that that 64 bit version requires maintaining new code and new files. Converting complex code like RAAS to 64 bits is a lot more complex than just flipping a switch I’m afraid.
You cannot use 32 bit code in a 64 bit app (so –very important!– if you own RAAS for FSX or an earlier version of P3D, do not try to install it into P3D V4. It won’t work and it will cause problems with P3D V4.)
Moreover, the previous version of RAAS supported, for free, FS9, Microsoft FSX, Steam FSX, Side by Side MS FSX and Steam FSX and Prepar 3D V1, V2 and V3.
Maintaining all these different versions is expensive and becoming very time consuming.
Some other FS developers are on the verge of throwing in the towel due to the massive complexity of trying to support numerous different platforms, but FS2Crew will be soldiering forward.
So enjoy P3D V4! Enjoy RAAS!
Keep the brown side down!
