Please... This is a genuine request, ... I ask the forum moderators and Admins NOT to respond to this post. I'd like to hear from a developer, or someone who's taken the role of CEO, that makes the decisions now., about my OPD question, shown below. The other threads regarding this were locked eventually, and no 'possibility' answers were given to my question. If one of the developers or new CEO can comment on the possibility of keeping the original v1 OPD for access by LTL users, I'd appreciate it...and so will the LTL users, until we decide if another license for v2 OPD access is wanted. I don't think RedFox will lose any money over keeping the old v1 access file, operational and online, for the LTL holders. You all make the rules now, so you can't simply say you can't...because the boss won't let you...he's not there any longer...right? The below responses by Ch3vr0n shows it's actually possible to do, now that it's known a separate v2 OPD is being made for the RedFox updates higher than v22.214.171.124 It's not as if you didn't make a copy of the old v1 OPD before you started to modify it for the new v2 file...yes? If you're not able to, or don't want to create a way to allow 'a-la-carte' licensing, ... https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/an-idea-for-an-à-la-carte-title-subscription-option.69062/ ... then please consider allowing the original LifeTime License holders to access the v1 OPD for the lifetime it was intended to do. Think of it as customer good-will, to show us the former boss is really no more...and RedFox makes the rules now. The below post #9 showed me it's now actually possible, but I'd like to know for sure, and explained why, if not... ...from a developer of the program...not a moderator or Admin. If it is possible...who in the new company RedFox took the role of CEO, and makes these decisions to do this? And please don't lock this thread as well...that would be very bad looking for the new 'RedFox'..! Post #9 from Ch3vr0n https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/deadline-extended-until-31th-may.69065/#post-433802 ------- Think of it this way. It's like upgrading your windows 7/8 to Windows 10. You don't suddenly have a dual boot system, you have 1 OS Windows 10 but you keep 'legacy' functionality so slightly older software doesn't just stop working overnight. The same applies to upgrading the OPD. They're doing maintenance to upgrade it in preparation of a real 'RedFox anydvd HD' release so it'll be ready, but they have to keep interim version access possible until that version is released. ------- [...] your answer showed me how they can actually have two separate OPD's (old and new), with the OLD v1 for the original LTL users They could simply keep a copy of the old v1 access OPD online, accessible by the old Legacy v1 access of the versions now and back, to the first RedFox version, then the v2 access OPD for the updates to the newer v2 access, after program updates of May 31st 2016 and beyond. Problem solved... I really don't think they'll lose more than a few hundred Megs of drive space on this idea. No real money lost, 'cause people will get new licenses for access to the newer titles, on the v2 OPD, if they ever need to. ========= Links to what lead-up to my above conclusion... Post #4 My question https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/deadline-extended-until-31th-may.69065/#post-433795 Just curious... Have they decided that the online database WON'T be split into two separate ones... OLD / NEW And that LTL's before any new interim versions won't have lifetime access to the OLD database? While new yearly licenses will have NEW database access? (NEW = copy of OLD plus new extras) I know...you don't know... But I'm just curious why the former LTL owners can't at least enjoy the OLD database for as long as they need the old titles even after the cutoff date of May 31st 2016 Post #6 https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/deadline-extended-until-31th-may.69065/#post-433799 I only asked that because when the database was inaccessible briefly. a few days ago, one of the Admins said the problem happened when they disconnected access to the old database to access the new one. Besides... I think it would have been nice for old LTL's to be allowed to access the OLD database after the deadline. Oh well...! Post #7 from Ch3vr0n https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/deadline-extended-until-31th-may.69065/#post-433800 No, the admin didn't say they disconnected one. He said that while performing maintenance to upgrade the OPD to version 2, something happened that disabled v1 access. Version 2 enables both accesses, there's only 1 OPD. 'Legacy v1 access' may be disabled when the licensing goes up and only 'v2 anydvd opd authentication' may be able to access the OPD from the cutoff date.
