Don't know if this is the proper place for this question, but: Does anyone know if the multiplayer will be made to work with the new patch? The best thing about the game is running missions with my friends...

What exactly does this mean? You can change the size of the MFD's in the other helicopters, like the blackhawk for example? I still get a CTD when messing with the MFD's in those as well. I was also wondering about the only MP server that seems to be up, the AAMRAMS one... my buddy Falchion and I have been on there quite a bit lately, and we're wondering if anyone knows anything about it being updated to 1.12.2 so we can get back online, or maybe some other server options. Also anyone interested in hooking up for some online action let one of us know as we've both have been quite into it lately and could use some more wingmen.

AMRAAM's Server: I know about that. Sorry I have been away for work, and did not realise that there was an update. I will updates the server to 1.12.2 tonight. so it should be up to date in about 6 hours from this post.

Ummmm...i have a little question. Just getting back into EECH. I love all that has been done but whats the differences between the "installer" and the "Executable only"? Beside the massive file size difference that is.

Also..is the AI helicopters crashing when trying to land a normal thing? He was like on the landing pad then all of the sudden he blow up like he had crashed into something. I have had this happen a couple of times, with AI and autopilot.

Thanks

The executable only is if you have the previous version, and just need to upgrade to the latest exe. The installer can be used no matter what version you have installed as it contains all the necessary files needed.

Technical Difficulties. Can't get the batch file I run to start the game. Well it starts the game, but only 1 map, over and over and over, trying to work out what has changed.

So you can't connect because the server is not up "properly" at the moment.

Yeah, thanks, AMRAAM... I figured as much... this morning my friend and I were able to connect with no problems and rocked a few missions out.

Nice but i have little problems with the Autopilot Landing on some Terrains and some Helis. The AP crashes my heli Oo

That is not good at transfer Missions The mission is also completed but the heli is lost and that is not good at war^^...

It looks a little bit like the ap lands shuts down rotor takes off again with the rest of rotor speed and than crashes

sometimes it helps to deactivate the ap short time before touchdown and enable it again so that the landing works.

On some Terrains the heli lands at the air. so that the heli is over the ground but also landed. sometimes the heli is also sinking with the tail or other parts in the terrain OO but ther are things like lines or so under the visible terrain where he comes back.

if you drive over the terrain you see that parts of the heli are in the terrain than comes back visible sink in the terrain and comes back and so on.

The biggest and Baddest error of all is the AP --> Crash Error. wink

Here is one crash log from the Program i dont know why it crashed because it was only this one program crash.
http://rapidshare.com/files/264857983/crash.log.html


EDIT: is there an Gunner Section in the Hind Cockpit? If yes i cant see/access it.

If no it would be nice to include it :-)

i used the Google Picture Search and found nice Pictures from different Hind Versions.
Special the Gunner and Cockpitsections Some newer Hinds there have two MFDs instead of the old map, would be nice if there are some new hind versions are included.

like the apache Cockpits (Apache A and Longbow)so that we have old Hinds with the map and Modern Hinds with MFDs biggrin

here i read the cockpits from the other helis i can fly...

http://www.eechcentral.com/wiki/index.php?title=Fly_any_aircraft

if i play on the Red Side i also see the SIMPLE Apache Cockpit if i fly other things like Mi-17 "Hip"
Mi-6 "Hook"

i thinks it looks also Better and more realistic if we use the Hokum Cockpit at this two Helis --> in these 2 example Helis Pilot and Co Pilot sit abreast and in the Hokum Cockpit say sit abreast to so it looks better...

Are you planning to integrate some new Helo 3D Cockpits? It would be nice smile


For the MI-17 i found and Example Cockpit :-)

Well, the fly all aircraft thing is just a hack. If someone else wants to put more work into it then feel free. But I prefer to rather model better the ones we already have.

Sure would be nice with more cockpits, but it's also a lot of work. Are you volunteering? smile

I would say yes XD But only Testing. 3D Graphics is an No GO for me and i dont know much about this X-File called 3D Graphic XD

Sometimes i get some little White Stripes,triangles or what ever over my screen they apear rarely but mostly if i changed from game to desktop and reentered the game without closing(/restarting) the game.


This idea for this 2 Red Side Helis is only for this time we have no better cockpits :-) so it would be nice if we can fly an Red Side heli with an good looking Red Side Cockpit than an simple and bad looking Blue Side (Apache) Cockpit. The Hokum Cockpit could also be used as an Black Hawk Cockpit because it looks more realistic on this Heli as an Apache Cockpit on this Heli wink


But i must say This Mod of an Older Game (EECH) is better than the EECH 2 wink EECH 2 or EECH 2 Dessert Ops has more than enough bugs Special Cockpit lights that are not working correctly or Problems with Firewalls even when no Internet Internet Connection is needed.

These Problems i dont Have in your Mod Version. :-)

So keep up this very good Work. :-)

Whatever this version did it broke the game for me. I just get an empty black box on half my screen now.

Thanks Firebird! Sounds good. When did Harriers and A-10s become flyable and who do we thank for that? The jets have a decent flight model and weapons?

They are not flyable. There was a bug in 1.12.1 that you could select them, but the game would crash if you did. Now you can't select them anymore.
