Hi

What does for example 2010-P1 mean and how does it differ from build# like 100830. I want to install orbiter 2010 for better add-on compability but I'm unsure what version of the D3D9 to install. The R15? Also, can I install the current version of the xr-vessels or do I have to download some old version?

Don't know if it is the latest, but R15 is what I've got on my Orbiter 2010 installation(s).

As far as getting an older version of the XR fleet, AFAIR Doug doesn't host his older versions.

Hi

2010-P1 means the first patch of the Orbiter version that came out in the year 2010. Build 100830 is the version that was built at date 10-08-30, meaning year 2010, month 08 (August), day 30. Both designations refer to the same thing: the Orbiter version most understand as "the previous one".

According to jarmonik's SVN repository, the latest version designation for the 2010-P1 branch of D3D9Client is R16.6 . I don't know if there are binaries for that, though. I *think* R15 is OK, though.

The author of the XR-series - Doug Beachy (dbeachy1) - stated that he is not supporting the old versions of his vessels, only the new 2016 builds. AFAIK, he is not offering the old binaries as download anymore, and you can't use the new versions in 2010-P1.
