~~~ Lost and Found thread ~~~

Post your lost file offerings / downloads / abandoned projects here


`````` From my own lost archives which I recently found `````

RAF_Roy's DAW Desert Mission_1 Add-on for Jel's Desert Air war for 1.28E (DAWSU128E.exe) package

Quote
from the readme..

Tested and Intended for EAW 1.28E use only.
The primary use is for single mission or instant mission (quick mission).
--------------------------------------------
Use:
1 - make a copy if jel's DAW128E files - To Avoid making the mistake of losing the original version!
only then (note that this vesion would not be compatible with a player using the Jel's version for instance, online. For online, you don't really need ths limited scenario because you can select bases):

2 - put the root files into (EAW or) the DAW scenario folder, overwriting the files from Jel's package
3 - place the files in the Msn_files folder (default(xx).msn files) in your savedata folder, overwriting the files from Jel's package
--------------------------------------------

This Add-on is just an additonal for easy play of a limited area of DAW, specifically the main North Africa coast bay pocket
The difference between this and DAW original and /or Jel's version is only a limited number of Axis bases will be available and active namely 2 airbases.
The rest of the territory will be Allied.
The primary use is for single mission or instant mission (quick mission).

This is accomplished by the 'surrounding type' frontline, which I discovered / or rediscovered some years ago (DOM many years ago might have figured this out also but it if he did - he never published info about it)..

I made this OAW style mission many years back but only the difference is I needed to add a new runways.dat for 128 series, and some other files were needed for compatibility which Jel's DAWSU128E package provides.

-RAF_Roy 10/20/2011 (Yes 2011 not like original 2001 , the Stanley Kubrick movie!)


``````````````````````````````````````````````

Note:
I haven't tested this since 2011 since I don't actually have the DAWSU128E package
Would anyone care to post a link where that is located?
Thanks!

Before EAW there was Mosquito which never got up in the air. Between 92 and 93 I was a game designer at MicroProse Manchester and my brief was to design a game around the Mosquito Fighter bomber. It had career, the interesting missions, Anti-submarine (the 6Lb anti-tank variation with a gun feed designed by a cigarette manufacturer), the bouncing bomb mission (against the Tirpitz), night radar misions plus all the usual MicroProse Flight Sim stuff. With input from B17 designer Mike Brunton (based in the MicroProse Leeds office) as well, to keep me on the straight and narrow. We had two excellent programmers, graphic artists and the use of a musician. It was going well.

I laboured for 15 months on that game design (ending up with a 256 page design doc and it was about 1/2 complete) from when MicroProse Manchester (England) first opened its doors in June 1992 until August 12th 1993, when following the Spectrum Holobyte Takeover in the US, we got closed down. The Atari St game conversion of Civilization was also done in Manchester while I was there.

Six months later we heard they had looked at the stuff shipped out when they closed us down. "Hey this Mosquito game looks good, wheres the team working on it?" ..."We let them go"!



from the url:
https://thedailywtf.com/articles/comments/The-Cool-Cam/4
from link from:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/search?q=european+air+war

It is that most likely IMHO some of the things in EAW came from other MicroProse games. Perhaps even ones that were never released?

Anyway, the point of the thread is exactly as it says.
Also since this game forum (and thus likely the entire game itself in absence of another venue) is winding down I'm interested to get out as much material as possible. As well to make as much useful propaganda as possible whenever / wherever.

btw; you can find a list of microprose games tried on Wine / Linux here:

The review for that magazine you posted is two pages long and can be read in pdf or downloaded in other formats here:

https://archive.org/details/Computer_Gaming_World_Issue_175


This review is notorious at pointing out EAW faults.
They include the blurry cockpit gauges and the poor view distance of planes.
But these are things corrected with patches and mods.
