Hi

I just(I know it's a bit late rolleyes) saw EEAH on GoG, and it's bringing back so much memories.

I tought about buying it back but I have some questions;

1- is it possible to run EEAH combine with EECH ?
2- how should i proceed for the installation/patching/modding ?
3- does it run well on win7?
4- back in time my rudder was my twisting stick. Now that I have a Saytek rudder, does it works well with HOTAS+rudder?
5- I don't remember well how ''simulation'' it was. How is it, let say, compare to DCS BS2?

Thx

You should get back into it. I did last year, and forgot how much I liked it. To answer your points;

1- is it possible to run EEAH combine with EECH ?

Yes. Although the only real benefit (after installing the latest patch) is working dials for the Havoc and Apache A. A 3D cockpit for the Longbow Apache was added in 1.13. So I would suggest just getting EECH. Although if you want all the dials for the Havoc, then you'll need EEAH - although I think Soczien is working on a cockpit for the Havoc (correct me if I'm wrong)

2- how should i proceed for the installation/patching/modding ?

There's a guide here - http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3420872/1_14_0_is_out.html#Post3420872

3- does it run well on win7?

Some problems have been reported. I've not tried it myself, but there are quite a few threads on the forums about running it on Win7. Have a read of those before deciding.

4- back in time my rudder was my twisting stick. Now that I have a Saytek rudder, does it works well with HOTAS+rudder?

Again, not tried this. But there was a recent thread here http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3497598/Warthog_HOTAS_in_EECH.html#Post3497598

5- I don't remember well how ''simulation'' it was. How is it, let say, compare to DCS BS2?

It's probably gotten a lot better since you played the original as the excellent community developers have done numerous tweaks to flight models and dynamics. It might not compare to something as modern as DCS:BS2, but it's still pretty good for it's age and still very enjoyable. For example, the manual startup on some of the helo's adds an extra realism element that wasn't in the original.

My own answers:

1) Yes.
2) Follow the link given above.
3) For me, yes. It runs both on my laptop and on my desktop. Both have Win 7 64-bit. No performance issues, instability, or any problem whatsoever.
4) Can't tell, I still use a twisting stick.
5) From what I've seen from DCS:

DCS beats EEAH/EECH on realism regarding your helicopter (avionics, flight model, damage model, etc). The modders have made considerable improvements to these aspects, so the difference isn't that great, but there is a difference.
EEAH/EECH beats DCS on fun, for two reasons: it has a dynamic campaign (DCS has pre-made missions only) and there are multiple helicopters to choose from.

I just finished downloading and installing all. Was able to start and play but I have a problem with my joystick. I seem to be able to assign the correct axis but ingame nothing happens

Have you gone in to the options in game and changed the various axis there?

Just bought a copy for $5 off ebay, looking forward to trying this game again.

Anyone know if it works with a triple screen setup? (5760 x 1080)

It doesn't. It uses directx7 which only supports resolutions up to 2048 in any direction.
