X-Plane USB key now available

August 30, 2009

X-Plane is now available on a USB key to avoid having to keep the DVD in your drive during use.

OK a number of people are tired of having an X-Plane DVD in the drive for copy protection. SOOOOOOO, I have introduced a new product for you: The level-1 X-Plane USB key.

When X-Plane finds this USB key in a USB slot, it will NOT check for a DVD, but instead accept the USB key as proof-of-purchase. The keys are only $29, so I am making this affordable.

Get the new X-Plane level-1 USB key from the X-Plane store.

This seems like a good idea for desktop users, but for laptop users like myself, having to plug in a USB key each time I use would be more hassle than leaving the DVD in the drive…

huh? X-Plane demands that a DVD is in the drive at all times, and requires $29 to disable this “feature”?

And just when I was considering trying it out!

It's not a requirement. You can still just leave the DVD in the drive
and not pay the extra $29.

Austin says he had a number of requests for it so, despite it not
being something I would use, I guess there must be a market for it. If
I ran X-Plane from a desktop, I might be tempted.

Me thinks Dave Duck isn't too happy with this decision :)
