Bug fixes
[*]Fixed constant ratio for FOV change.
[*]Fixed "upgrade" process from players2.bin to playersv.bin.
[*]With proper season always loading -W textures for winter, -D for desert (even for non-camo).

Some files were renames, some files were removed, please make a clean install. This is the reason why the major version has been changed.

Installation procedure

0. Move your current installed game somewhere for backup purposes.

If you have EEAH
1. install EEAH
2. run the game once
This will unpack the graphics files.
3. download and install patch 1.1E
4. run the game once again

5. install EECH
6. download and install eech-allmods-1.14.0.exe
7. download and install eech-maps-1.14.0.exe
8. download and install eech-terrain-1.14.0.exe
9. download and install eech-smoke-1.14.0.exe

10. you can copy your players.bin/players2.bin/playersv.bin files from the previous installation to save your pilot progress.

11.1 Either launch COHOKUM_DS.EXE with DirectSound
11.2 Or install OpenAL and launch COHOKUM.EXE.


I'm sorry if I missed a modification or contributor.
Please write about this here, the next bug fix release will contain that.

NSIS failed to use sources of more than 2GB, the installation has been split into several files.

FireBird

P.S. Guys, please modify eechcentral for this release.

Want SimHQ to mirror the files?

Well. We have a slight disagreement with Firebird wink
In my opinion as long as we will not find the cause of bug,as long fire and smoke
not they will look like they can and they should.Please treat all effects as infinite.
Everything will look a lot better, and will be released a small update.
ATM imo smoke and fire looks better without wind affected.
Everyone can assess it, simply enter the file smokes.csv
And change last 1 from x;x;x;x;x;1 to x;x;x;x;x;0
in these lines :
4;FIRE;SMOKE
34;FLAME;flame_smoke;

Thanks all for you work

Fantastic, can't wait to learn what I'm doing. biggrin Don't suppose there are any places with tutorials are there? It's been so long I've lost the manuals.

Also, the Mi24 cockpit's front glass pane is completely opaque, so I can't see through it. Did I miss something or hose it up?

Thank you all for your hard work.

I hope this is the right place to report bugs for this version:

There seems to be an issue with the Apache compass size (I tried reinstalling twice...)



And the issue with the Hind:





Also, I don't mean to be rude, but how do you disable the new fire/smoke effects?

Maybe write what you do not like.
Firebird this version released now, for this reason that he left for a long time.
We had to choose release is now infinite, or release a few months.
Reporting here All comments which do not like,and I myself release revised versions quickly.
I also am not happy with the fire and smoke.As long as we do not find bug in code will not
it looked a lot better frown

Well... only two things really

- The "dust" from tanks and trucks... it's a bit much. The effect looks like the vehicle is damaged/on fire.

- The actual fire flames: it is nice that a gas tank explodes with a large bright tall flame. But having the same fire/smoke effect for hitting a SAM site or a transport truck (man, those canned beans can REALLY light up!! biggrin ) is just weird.

For you much smaller fire and dust from vehicles, tell me what do you think and what else to change.
Soon will be a much better missile trail.

Hi, for some reason I have just discovered EECH. I purchased EEAH and EECH, and I am wondering is this 1.14.0 comprehensive?, or do I have to download previous versions.

Thank you

Hope it worked smoothly for you. Since the instructions aren't on this second page of the thread, and not at the top of the post, I thought you might have missed them. And I'm not an expert on the EECH mods and don't want to say specifics about their mods! In any case, what do you think of it?
