Bug fixes
[*]Fixed payload for Blackhawk
[*]No crush while displaying destroyed Yak or Falcon
[*]Preserving proportions of background screens for wide displays
No test of video modes on enumeration

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

Download procedure

EECHCentral is down, that makes difficult to provide direct links in the post.
Old patches and new 1.15 can be found on SimHQ http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3185855

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. install patch 1.1E
4. run the game once again

5. install EECH
6. install eech-allmods-1.15.0.exe
7. install eech-maps-1.15.0.exe
8. install eech-terrain-1.15.0.exe
9. install eech-smoke-1.14.0.exe (yup, old 1.14)

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.



While I'm happy that after more than a year a new release has been born, I'm very sad about some features (and people spent a lot of their time on them) I could not include in the release.
Soczkien still left Ka-50 cockpit incomplete, but with HUD it's possible to use it. Another his great contribution is Eurocopter Tiger model... But it's only model, without sounds, weapons (PARS), cockpit.
BANITA worked a lot with explosions (and 1.14 were not good enough he said), but that work is not complete too.
Olds made a lot with effects... And where are the results?
I'm sure I'm missing many other names.

Probably many of them just were tired waiting for their work to be released.

I'm grateful for everyone contributed, and admire of those who could bring their contributions to completion. It's really hard.

Awesome! You guys rule! Thanks!

Question: Is it possible to download from there without installing their download application? I'm a little paranoid about trojans from sites like that.

Click text link "Download or watch" then again Download - and you will be able to download without download manager

or use emule ( or likes ), I shared the file as

ed2k://|file|EECH_1.15.0.zip|782343769|5231626113DE677ECE902045E2AE2B8E|h=IMYWXWIWHSJJ2GR3N4Z3AEPDN424EAOW|/

and the next file also contains readme ( first post here ) and also includes eech-smoke-1.14.0.exe

ed2k://|file|eech_1.1.5.0_all_files.zip|783187724|FC1FA575C21A484BA7B5C07E02BBBA68|h=HQAXEXHJ3W6H4SQ5F7IY4GBV4RQREAQS|/

Yes, uncheck the tick beside "Download file easily With Billion Uploads download manager." under the "Download" link and the download will be taken care by your web browser.

I think a Bill&Ted-style "Excellent" goes here!

A good offset to the 'Bah Humbug' mood that I always get at this time of year, though I probably won't get a chance to properly try it out just yet - something to look forward to when it's all over...

To all involved: Thanks a lot for your truly awesome work!

I had the time for only 10min freeflight in the AH-1Z, fantastic dfang!

While doing the clean install I couldn't resist looking what the vanilla EEAH looked like and where all these developers brought us to... Really amazing.
Let's see, what will happen in the next 14 years biggrin

This is great. I've just got my desktop back up and running, and I was going to re-install EECH.

I'm also going to start up my Blackhawk development again. Soczkien did a great job of the updated model, but it's not entirely accurate. So I'm working on a MH-60L model, and I've got a ton of reference images. I'd like to complete it including the cockpit, so I'll start work on it again.

This is the model I'm working on, but with wings for armament...

Nice Work.
But why does not all AH-1 Use the New Cockpit?

Individual Packages have been added in addition to the one large v1.15 package.

I decided this time around not to use the Smoke package.

I used the Smoke package in V1.14 and my entire screen was filled with smoke.

Now, I do have a pretty good computer with lots of processing speed and RAM and a big video card but it seems that after I've have attacked several ground targets, the smoke funnels rising from the multiple destroyed targets on the ground will slow down the frame rate of the graphics.
