+1. Enjoying the low tech Mi-24, though you could pick up my SA off the floor with tweezers. dizzy

Homefries, try using your motherboard as a toaster (again). That should take care of the SA.

Many thanks for this, and to everyone who has kept this going over the years - I only recently installed the game, and (knowing how old it was) expected my search for a 'final' patch to be not much more than a couple of tweaks and maybe an extra map. Sometimes it's good to be wrong!

I'm glad you said this - I was feeling guilty that my first appearance in 'EECH territory' was on the Mantis bug tracker complaining about stuff...

I note your remark on the other thread about a crash dump not being much help on its own so if you want me to do some tests with a debug exe, let me know.

I don't use that bug tracker, SimHQ forum and e-mail are enough for bugs I'm able to fix. As long as plenty programmers will choose which bugs to fix, it can be useful.
Now about your bug ("Create Font returned NULL (120)" in Win98 - right?).

The code showing that message calls CreateFontW and GetLastError returns 120. 120 is "This function is not supported on this system.". According to documentation the minimum supported OS for the function is Windows 2000.
I don't have Win98 and I don't know how to fix this behavior.
The only thing I changed in UI/fonts is clearing of cache files.

Looks like they only removed the 'antiques capability' a few months ago, too. I guess it was bound to happen at some point but at least you can know that it was Microsoft that broke it and not you!

Fortunately I can still boot into XP so in the end this is really only inconvenience, not fatal, so I can live with that.

Toaster? I thought you said Coaster!

Either way, that would smart-bomb every virtual bad guy in the game, though I'm not sure the virtual Hind has the EMP protection to survive that.

OK, here goes:

- Blowing up an F-16 that is on the ground causes an access violation : always if using a missile, occasionally if using HE cannon. No difference if F-16 is moving or not.

- Random muting/reduction of one or more sounds when switching views, e.g. switching from map to cockpit you hear everything except the engine, have to switch back and forth a couple of times before sound re-appears. Voices (including co-pilot) frequently very quiet (or occasionally loud and in just one ear if things are getting noisy outside), happens in both DS and OA versions.

- Sound direction (in cockpit view) of e.g. tanks seems fixed to their bearing from me, regardless of which way I am pointing (no head-turn), e.g. if they are at 090 from me and I point straight at them or steer so they are on my left, the sound is still on the right. Does not seem to be new (also present in 1.13), but presumably went unnoticed as I guess people don't normally drive around in circles at the local tank park and probably have these 'outside' sounds turned down a lot more in any case.

Possible relevance : on-board realtek sound (manual says AC97 2-channel), headphones, no speakers. If a 5.1 sound card/chipset is now a requirement (not a major problem, I can get one), it might be a good idea to update the system requirements list to reflect this.

As I said, if you want me to do specific tests and/or run a debug version let me know.
Or if I did something wrong and there is a 'magic_fix=1' that I have to put in the ini file I can do that too smile

I will check F-16 issue.

Regarding sound, I doubt I can do much. DS version is "original" one, and if there are problems, they were not introduced by me, thus I cannot fix them quick.
And we have no 5.1 requirement. At least as far as I know. wink

You have the latest sound drivers installed, right?

I exploded several Falcons with Hellfires - no crashes.

Interesting that you got no crashes with Hellfire - it always crashes with Vikhrs and the missiles from the Hind. I will check Hellfires here though - to see whether or not it is some machine-specific weirdness...

OK, understood - I checked against my 'reference' version (1.4.6x) and the sound positioning is correct, hence my query on 5.1 - I realise I am probably being over-simplistic here but what it *looks* like is my heading is not being subtracted somewhere. Or I may have just demonstrated my ignorance of how sound works.

Yes, according to Windows Update. I can check the board manufacturer for anything more recent but since other games are working OK I'm not convinced this will fix it (but will try anyway). Edit: confirmed, WU and Abit have the same version for 'latest'.

Yep, still doing it. Does not seem to happen with any other aircraft, and (as far as I can tell) only on the ground.

Hi -- nice to be back with EECH which I haven't been running since 1.9.0. 1.14.1 is awesome! I'm running it on Windows XP Pro in Boot Camp on a Mac Pro 8-core 2.93 GHz (3.33 with Xeon Turboboost), and Radeon 5870 1GB. Looks fantastic on the Apple LED Cinema Display 24 and plays smooth -- I've set max framerate to 60. I see two issues with the new smoke system: the flames are a little bit excessive even after viewing the example video of a tank cooking off its ammo after a missile hit. A technical issue: things that are colored black in the vehicle textures are not getting alpha-channel blending, so they stand out sharply as if drawn on top of the smoke / dust clouds. Run the "Demo" mode, and watch as the camera follows a column of vehicles trailing dust clouds. The outline of the rear-hatch on APCs for example. Maybe change the RGB value of the dust clouds a little? Not sure without looking at the code.

I've found the campaign editing utils at http://eech.robfox.net/ and have a question before I dig in. Is there a SCUD launcher vehicle in EECH? Maybe it exists in the commercial "Enemy Engaged 2" and could be transfered over? I'd love to create a "topical" campaign involving SCUD-busting in Syria.

Many thanks to the people involved in putting the EECH community mods together!

Hi Doctor_Wibble,

I did a lot of testing of Firebird's changes to the sound and one of the systems I used had an MSI motherboard with Realtek onboard sound (AC97) and it worked perfectly.

I tested it both as the main sound source and as the headset sound.

What OS are you running ? I'm on XP Professional Service Pack 3.

Could it be a chipset related problem ?

Andy
