Hi guys so when global came out I was wondering did the pre global stuff get completely shut down or could I download IF on my iPad and do a pre global flight I think it would be a interesting thing to compare a side by side with it. I’m sorry if I missed that in the update details on the post.
The only ways I see in order to use the old version of IF is if:
You have an old device that has the pre-global version installed
You have a backup of our device with the pre-global version.
I don’t think you can redownload older updates on the Play Store or App Store.
Actauly I am so tempted to load up a really old backup onto my Ipad, and play Space Shuttle…😏
@Demeter is correct. I have an old iPad and run the old IF on it. You could just buy a cheap old iPod or the like if you really wanted it. Otherwise, its pretty hard to get it.
Well, it depends, what kind of device are you using and what devices do you have available?
@nativetoalaska I have backups going back to 2013, I could just restore from those on my Ipad, and it would work, I kow becuais I recently dropped my Ipad down the stairs, and well the Ipad did not do well…
So I needed a new one, and I restored from a previous backup on my moms IMac, and no gem updates were done automatically…
I also saw at that tume I have backups till 2013, so space shuttle, old 787, 747, … Could be lurking…
download the 2013 version and send me a screenshot!
If I do I will, actualy that may deserve it’s own topic, so we will see, it may also be a bit complicated to play a worse version of a game I already have…
I have an old iPad laying around that is sill on pre global. Always fun to hop on there :)
How far back is it, just pre, or further?
I believe it is further back. I’ll have to check tomorrow.
Now that I am thinking about it, I am imagning all the posibilitues of taking it back like that, I would certanly join a small club to have IOS 5 on a Mini 4😂
Quick question, aren’t the pre-global servers still open, though?
Initially all three were, but time drew on the servers eventually became empty. A few months back the Expert was shut down along with either TS1 or Casual (I can’t remember honestly.) However my Live+ sub expired in January and Pro subs don’t work on the old version.
It has been 6 months since global came out so one would hope everyone knows about the update and the servers can be shutdown. However FDS may wait 6 more months for the final Live subs to expire
I have the old version of IF still.
It’s been nearly 6 months xD Surely you would get a new device
@Ironman_Ballets what device do you have?
And what version is that device?
Doesn’t @AndroidPilot still use pre global?
Yes I do. I honestly like it.
we are few and far between my friend.
who needs beautiful high quality global scenery when you have green sludge
