An updated version of MasterTemplate is being prepared for full compatibility with ArchiCAD 15. AMT15 is expected to be ready by mid-July.
All purchases of MasterTemplate after May 1, 2011 are eligible for a free upgrade to AMT15.
Upgrades for existing MasterTemplate licensees will cost $95 USD. Special introductory upgrade pricing of $75 will be available through July 15.
Complete documentation on the upgrade will be made available at the time of release, including instructions for how to upgrade a customized template.
It is technically possible for users to upgrade their own template for compatibility with ArchiCAD 15. To achieve a clean result, the Interactive Legends need to be carefully migrated to use the ArchiCAD 15 Library. Some of this is handled automatically by ArchiCAD 15, but a significant amount of manual work is required to clean up all the Legend components properly. Instructions for this process will be included in the AMT15 documentation.
I recommend that those who want to upgrade their template with the least effort and cleanest results purchase the AMT15 upgrade, since this will make the transition as quick and easy as possible.
To purchase an upgrade, please login to the AMT website with your username (email address) and password. On Your Membership Profile page click the Upgrade link, and follow through on the standard shopping cart process. Payment may be made by credit card or PayPal. If you buy the upgrade before it is released, you’ll get a receipt and will be notified as soon as the new version is ready for download; if you buy it after release, you will get immediate access.
