Hi, I'm curious to know how many of use the latest stable version or Open Beta and if not which version and why. Please don't "judge" the reasons why some of us stay on earlier versions, whether hardware, software or personal taste, because we all have different expectations. Thanks in advance.

Personally I reverted to 2.5.3 because of a lighting issue that I could not solve in the latest stable version ie 2.5.6

Thanks all for your votes and posts.

 

So far it looks like I'm among the very few minority who has reverted to an earlier version.

these post to me are very silly. just download the open beta and be done w/ it. no reason to have 4 versions of the game... do you guys play other games and when a update comes out you have multipole copies as well?

It actually looks like you're the only one to do so ;)

Preferentially Stable. Do most flying and mission creation there - especially now that the Channel map is available in Stable. It varies but lately I'd say over 90% of my usage has been on Stable. I've been doing mostly GA flying and training recently.

 

I use Open Beta for the features that are not available in Stable and for the occasional MP action.

There is almost always some bug in the stable version that I want fixed. The open beta version almost always fixes the bug but adds one or more new ones. Given that neither version is 100% satisfactory, I tend to run the open beta to get to fly the early access aircraft as soon as possible. I got tired of burning up so much hard drive space maintaining both versions. So, I only use the open beta for now.

Using latest stable. Lighting never looked better and more realistic to me so I assume the issue is on OP's end.

 

It's not only me. Read that thread : https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=281315

I could understand only two reasons to not update:

2.5.3 for a Hawk

1.5 for performance on an old rig

...maybe if you go through a campaign it's good to stay on one working version too
