    did+so far

    "She hasn't promised danything she didn't deliver so far."

    Is it only the present perfect tense used with "so far"? Or a past simple might be used as in the sentence?

    Would this one sound OK?

    "She hasn't promised anything she didn't promise already".

    I would use "hasn't delivered so far".

    I would say "hadn't already promised".
