I don't think you will get a refund, but if you have a licence on a CM stick, these are possible to sell for a reasonable fraction of the list price. (It used to be around $85 when the current price was $125, but I don't know what the more recent offers have been).

One of the advantages of Esim using the CM stick was the total flexibility of the disposal of your copy of the game. Give it away, sell it, keep it and upgrade licenses at a later date, or update and enjoy the current version.

There are also options to avoid the upfront cost and to use a timed license (locked to the machine it is activated on) at a cost broadly comparable to the ongoing cost of major updates over time. Again you can dip in and out, paying for a year at a discount, or the two single months you can dedicate sufficient time to the simulation according to your need/wants. They provide options to suit the reasonable needs of their customers

Pre order in and now awaiting the release/shipping, and as my son no longer has time for games I'm reducing my licence to just the one this time. it has been fun playing with him at home, now as simming online is not feasible it's back to single player again.

Is the printed manual going to be available for purchase separately?

What will be contained in the printed version - everything in the current docs folder or just the SBProManual.pdf?

...as a quick framerate demonstrator, on an old machine. (To establish some context here.)

Is the newest iteration of SB going to be more CPU limited or GPU limited? Or just engine limited?

My PC is getting long in the tooth and I'm planning a full update with excellent SB performance as one of the big factors in what I decide to throw into the machine. DCS and P3D are the other two big ones.

For the bigger scenarios, CPU limitation would be more typical I'd say. I don't know what your budget is; while we're gradually implementing more parallelization in the coming years it's still not something that will happen fast; to that extent it's probably still valid to favor CPUs which, for the same price, offer a bit more single thread performance. But where this might really become noticeable the CPU prices are also pretty high, so this may be an entirely academic debate for you.
Personally I'd be tempted to try out the new AMD CPUs combined with a matching AMD GPU, and be it just to send a message to Intel to get their act together. Their price levels appear to be very attractive.

Embedding videos in this forum software is a pain.

Anyway, this is intended as a sequel to the Vector video (see below) which you may want to watch first.
