v4 to 4.1

Recommended Posts

OK, little bit of clarification needed here if you can please....

 

currently I am set at v4, not sure what the difference is going to 4.1 or how I get there, don't really want to do a complete download again, my net d/l is quite slow....I think I can just update was it 'content' or am I understanding this wrong? also by doing this update I assume I have to reinstall my addons as apart from A2A they all install to root folder, trying to avoid this, maybe I will learn out to set up files to install addons elsewhere...trouble with reinstall is does ORBX redownload now using Central 3?....is 4.1 giving me something v4 doesn't or is it just a tidy up...

 

Thanks in advance for any help...

Hi Wayne,

 

The download for V4.1 isn't any smaller for updating as it is for re-installing. Where the difference lies is when you extract the .zip file you have download from LM

you will see there is an installer just for the client. So uninstall the 4.0 client using add/remove programs taking the option to deactivate your licence, then install the new client and on first use enter your licence number and the job's a good un.

 

The LM forum post about updating components only (client, content of scenery) is here https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6322&t=120861

sorry Joe I must be not understanding this, it says in the link that I can download say just content 195 or so mb.....and just install that for small updates, I am not sure if .1 was a small update....it says nothing about the likes of ORBX.... you see if it is a full d/l and full install then I wont bother as that will take a while to reinstall all my addons and reactivate everything......

Thanks for the reply though, also the link was very useful....

Wayne,

 

They have yet to implement the individual component downloads hence my comment about the full download. This will come in the future.

 

I found Orbx Central V3 was ok, you just need to fire it up after updating P3Dv4 and it will activate all the Orbx scenery for V4.

 

Cheers,

Joe

just a quick update on this, as per LM instruction I download just the CLIENT (201mb), installed that update and nothing else, currently changing content only gives you rain effects that only work on default AC....restarted the sim, check using HELP on top bar, this tells you your version, and there we go updated to 4.1
