SPAD.neXt 0.9.8 released! MS Flightsimulator launch discount

Post by c0nnex » 19 Aug 2020, 01:13

SPAD.neXt Version (0.9.8 Build 2) has just been released opening up the support for the all new MS Flightsimulator 2020
The support of the new MS Flightsimulator 2020 is covered by any valid FSX-Edition or Complete-Edition license of SPAD.neXt

However, there is a bug in the MSFS release version which leads to noticable framedrops if any tool is connected via SimConnect to it.
This is NOT a SPAD.neXt problem and there is nothing we can do about. If you want to get this fixed quick, raise your voice at Microsoft/Asobo.
We will inform regulary about any updates to that bug in our forum ( and Discord (

There are some fundamental changes to the SimConnect-Implementation in MSFS, so please inform yourself about limitations and changes in our forum, before opening a ticket.
(This includes, but is not limited to, the setting of axis from outside the sim is currently not possible (affects e.g. Throttle/Pitchtrim). Workarounds will be published as they are available)

If you already installed SPAD.neXt 0.9.7 in TRAIL mode, you will have to download the new installer from our website to get the 0.9.8 features. Just install it over your existing installation. No need to uninstall prior to it.
Your 14 days trial period is not affected. Please make use of it!
All normal installations with a valid update subscription will offer to update automatically.

Since there are many requests from current users to switch from X-Plane or just want X-Plane+MSFS here is our
3-Day MS Flightsimulator launch offer:

* If you own a X-Plane license for SPAD.neXt and want to switch completely to MSFS, open a ticket and your license will be shifted for free.
* For the timeperiod from Aug 19th 00:00 UTC+2 to Aug. 22 23:59 UTC+2 we will offer a discount of 25% on any purchases (Licenses/Addons/renewal).
The discount will be applied automatically upon checkout.

Other notable changes in 0.9.8:
Support for the Virtual Avionics MCP has been added. See the online snippets for ready to fly, real-life near (as real as it gets) device setups for it.

Features currently being worked on, available already in beta:
