Should I upgrade?

Hi all, I have AF2012 and I am wondering if I should upgrade to the latest version. Is there enough new stuff and features to warrant the purchase? Or should carry on with UAE?

I believe we all have different opinions on that. But IMO if any software program
offers upgrades/updates one should update/upgrade.

But it's ultimately your decision to make.

I totally agree when software is free, but when you are paying for this upgrade then there really needs to be some great extra features / content over previous versions... otherwise, that's just milking it.

Hehe, ok...reading between the lines there. Have the roms changed much from 2012 to now?

The only difference I have noticed between AF7 and 8 (as they are now called) is the roms are no longer encrypted so you do not need the key file anymore, dunno if this is an oversight or just how things are now.

Thanks all. Think I will stick to what I have for now, until I need a feature that I don’t get currently

That depends on whether you want to help support paying lawyer fees while Hyperion gets sued.

As it sure won't be going into any hardware reproduction.
