Artlantis 7 free upgrade ?

Wed 2 May 2018 19:35

Hello everyone

Almost two weeks have passed since Artlantis 7 was announced in the official Abvent's Facebook page.
Well, I was definitely curious about the upgrade program and here is what I was officially told by Abvent.

I haven't received any mail since and these past days was the global announcement.

Went to the official Artlantis site, clicked the "coming soon" button that redirected me to the Abvent's Store. While I was not logged in, there was a "Free upgrade" option that turns unavailable as soon as I logged in...

Anyway, I was forced to pick the one left for 6.X upgrade option. Did all the process, gave my 6.5 serial number and it was still charing 160 EU for what I was told was gonna be free.

Quite frankly, you just never give it straight and clear, Abvent. That's your bad.

Same here!

I also understood it is a free upgrade for 6.5 users so I deactivated my 6.5 license and tried to use the serial number for 7 - does not work :?:

The Artlantis Newsletter I received Tuesday says it is free for 6.5 licenses purchased since March 1. So only for very recent purchases.

This feels like a rip off. Like I said in another post Art 7 is not a new version, it is an update improving only 2 things. (by the way - I did a test and could not see any increase in speed). A new version should have new features / functions not only improvements.

I do not use Twinmotion so I'm not interested in Twinlinker and should not have to pay for it.

Art 7 should be called Art 6.6 and should be a free upgrade for ALL 6.5 users.

Thank you - I feel better now..... (don't know why)
