Hi all,

Why is it that gaming companies make all these update's but forget to do one major thing, and that is to make them backward compatible i.e: - I have update 1.2 but can't enter game's that are only 1.11.

Fancied a game tonight but only to find that they were all 1.11 version's so no gaming for me...

Please if any of the tech peep's read this any chance you could post a reason why you don't make the update's backward compatible...

Thanx..

That's easy.

The FM and DM are different, just to name an example.

Also the new patch has a few new planes in them so if someone is flying one of those planes the people who have an older patch don't see them.

Or in different sims where you can add additional planes and you run into view range of someone in a plane you don't have the game crashes you to your desktop.

an besies it is just a beta, wait till this week an 90% of the ppl will be on the officail patch.

also all that the guy above said is true too. Sorta like modifying ur 4 cylinder car to take a 6 cylinder engine and then expect to put the 4 back in like moving a lever!
