Why?

In general, Soviet Cold War vehicles have always intrigued me. While I admire BRDM-2s, T-72s, BMPs, and Hinds as much as the next guy here, it’s  the rear-echelon vehicles that have a special place in my heart. I’m still giddy we got the MT-LB, BM-21, 2S1, and 2S3 a few years back. And now we’re getting this gem!? F’get about it...😀

 

Anyway, I think in an old BRDM thread you mentioned you were possibly gonna get a ride in one (ACRV/1V1x). Did you? Hmm, I wonder if you modeled this after it?

Just bought the printed manual with the USB stick version. Now, I'm unsure, does this one come with the license upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1?

If "just" means in the last day or so then yes you are getting 4.165.

 

If "just" is say a couple a weeks ago or longer you may need to email Ssnake, depending on whether you purchased the "pre-order" or an ordinary copy.

I think I may have done a booboo... reading Ssnake replies from a couple of the pages on the beginning of this thread, it seems I may not have bought the one with the license.

 

I just bought the one that had $27.50 as it's price an hour or so ago.

 

Sometimes I amaze myself with my stupidity.

I'd drop him a line.

 

Certainly this suggests:

 

Manual and USB Stick

  • 32 GByte USB “Installation Stick”
  • Printed version 4.1 user manual
  • FREE SHIPPING
  • *Shipments will be delayed until approximately Aug 4.*

That all you have bought is the USB stick (containing a copy of the software and maps) and a printed manual - there is no mention of a license or license upgrade.

 

I suspect you'll have a copy of 4.165 on the USB stick but no license to run it.

Did you pay $27.50, of $53.- ?

Seems like you ordered only manual and USB stick but not the license. The preorder period has ended, and with it the bundling of upgrade license with the manual; they are now separate items.

No, earlier.

I'll drop you an e-mail to see if I can switch to the lincese version and pay the remaining. I'll do so in an hour.

Well, if you want a printed manual, and if you want a license, you'd just have to place a second order (for the license).

It's different of course if you don't want the manual. In that case we can cancel your order, no problem.

Just sent you an e-mail, if that is the best option, instead of switching the order and paying the difference, then yes, that will be preferable. Since I can't afford paying extra $30 for the license. 
I'm sorry, I don't know what my brain was thinking, or if it was thinking at the time... heh!

You can always "make do" by printing the PDF from the installation (there's a copy installed into the \docs sub folder).

 

It may not look as professional, but it contains all the same information.

Yep, I agree, Which is why I want to either switch the order and pay the difference, or cancel it and place a new one. I thought pre-orders were up until the 28th haha!

Naming the release 5.0 would be appropriate. 

Indeed. This is probably going to be one of the most significant upgrades in long time, enough to dever its own number. However I believe it is already way to late to change the designation

There's still a patch to build and to test.

We're not delaying things just to torture you, as much appeal as the thought may have. ;)
