I'm a bit confused about what I read in the blog.

Also I don't get the 'MMO' term in the context of this sim. Is it going to be a MMO of some kind?

That doesn't say it's going to be an MMO, only that the games launcher window will appear on your desktop with options to play etc.

I used the acronym "MMO" as that's the context most people are exposed to such launchers.

You run a small .EXE which checks your local files and downloads as necessary. If you have everything installed (or on a DVD) it serves as an update checker. If you check the 'offline' mode box then it just displays version, any notes and a run game button.

It was supposed to be a simple one size fits all solution.

Yup. There's a call for engine bugs and there's still a doozy but what I've decided to do is forget about it being fixed at the engine level and write around it.

Will I be able to use my racing pedals as rudder pedals for this sim like with Falcon 4.0 BMS?

Oh no! evil, evil!

(sorry, I'm not up to a more sophisticated response today, I'm not a fan of automatic patching, but I'm glad you'll be shipping DVDs - I've always viewed them as a kind of receipt and I'm very glad that you guys are making progress towards release).
