Hello, I actually sent this question through support because (apparently) I hadn't activated this account and thus my attempts at making this post were....Fruitless.

-Anyhow (now that I feel stupid) I have a question related to Adrift 5.0

I would like to purchase adrift as it is an awesome program. I used to have it long ago but lost my code and that email address (was over 4 years ago) and I certainly do not mind paying for this product again.

I am ready to put together my "epic" adventure but here's the thing- I dont see anywhere on the purchase page where to get Adrift 5.0- Is it out?

I DO NOT want to buy a 4x version and have to upgrade but would rather begin (again) using 5.0.

Also, I have read threads discussing what SHOULD be implemented in 5x but see nowhere what WAS implemented (assuming its out).

Conversation tress?

Anyhow, I will be buying either today (if I can get 5.0) or once 5.0 is available.

Hi Dark Penguin,

I had the same question a couple of weeks ago and Mystery answered me. You can probably find it just a few topics down on this part of the forum.

But to answer, 5.0 is out for registered members. You can download it upon purchasing 4.0 and from what I understand you'll be able to carry that license to version 5 when it is released. Right now, it is still in the development / testing phase.

I had some trouble with 5.0 in that I couldn't run anything with it, it crashed and sent the problem itself. It could be that I'm running on Vista for all I know. I've not tried it on XP yet, so keep that in mind.

I straddle the line between genius and insanity. Guess which side I'm on now?

Cool thanks alot Randy for your reply.

Yes, I was a bit confused because I saw post(s) regarding installing 5.0 but nothing on the purchase page. I suppose that makes sense if its still in testing.

Well, looks like I have a Paypal account to set up =P

-Thanks again.
