All Flyable Bombers is now EAWPRO! This because I have no good memories about the previous name and because I feel that current AI now rival human players in terms of behaviour.

Since I have no access to my FTP site I have asked Mark EAW to host the latest FXEXE files. It's been tested to fully work with the AFB download on my website and applies to ONE Launchpad members only!, since we use a more advanced version for testing purposes:

[url]http://rabartel.home.xs4all.nl/FXEXE_LATEST.zip[url]

Just overwrite the files in the above download and follow the instructions in the ReaMe, or just add the upgrade to your standalone FXEXEv1.0 install.

[url]http://www.mediafire.com/file/gax9qg30ukxc43j/EawPro.zip[url]

Most significant changes are:

Some bugfixes
New canonfix
Even more agressive AI (hence EAWPRO)
Reintroduced slightly altered MaxView routine
New bailout routine
Revised sound system
More ingame sounds
Quick missions will use TimeOfDay setting under [NETOPTION]
Computed gunsight
Accumulated blackouts by loss of control under heavy gforce, beware!
More realistic crash behaviour
Further improved effects
and more!

Further optimised code currently stands at:
29.050 adress changes of which 6.500 bytes were removed from the gameloop, resulting in higher FPS.

I hope you guys like, smile

Here's a slightly updated EAW FXEXE Patch Help Document I should include. It mentions most of the changes VBH has made to the game:

Reintroduced slightly altered MaxView routine
New bailout routine
Revised sound system
New Airraid alarm
More ingame sounds
Quick missions will use TimeOfDay setting under [NETOPTION]

resulting in higher FPS.
==========
To install over the last release EAWPRO version 1.0, just extract the ZIP
into your EAWPRO1.0 folder and overwrite what's old.
==========
To install over a working clean 1.2 install:

download and unzip FXEXE basic into your EAW gamefolder available here:
http://rabartel.home.xs4all.nl/FXEXE_LATEST.zip

Just add/overwrite the files/folders in the EAW game directory when asked to
replace/overwrite.

Next do the same with the EAWPRO upgrade available here:

Happy hunting, I hope you guys like, smile

RECTIFICATION:

Mark informed me that the new version's download URL isn't the same as the old one, due to how Mediafire works.
My orignal post was modified with the new URL. Sorry for that.

A couple of questions wink
The "FXEXE_LATEST.zip" generates two exes, "eaw.exe" and "Theo.exe"
The "EawPro1.0.zip" generates another "eaw.exe".
Running any of them gives a mainscreen with "FXEXE1.0" as the ID in the bottom left corner, and they are all the same size
I guess that the EAWPro version is the one in the "EawPro1.0.zip" , but I am wondering if there is an error in the upload?

The second question is about multiplayer.
In 1.28 and later I changed the code so that the launch button is active with just the host and no other players present
This makes it possible for a player to test the multiplayer set-up, and I found it to be really useful.
I did not need additional code. From memory it was a matter of changing a ">1" to a ">0" or something like that.

THEO.EXE accidentally found it's way into "FXEXE_LATEST.zip" and may be slightly earlier or later. Both will work without the EAWPRO upgrade, however the files in the EAWPRO ZIP supercedes all the previous files and THEO.EXE will probably no longer work, so it can safely be erased after the addon was incorporated. When I regain access to my FTP site these two versions will be turned into a single download but it may take some time before I can do that.
