The exes are available here:
Enemy encounter exes

Run it in your 160 installation to add the "26thJanNewMapV3.exe" and the "26thJanOldMapV3.exe" to your EAW Versions folder
Check the thread about the 262 bounce for more details. Try some of the missions I show there with the default ETO theatre and planes.
You need to keep visiting the enemy airfields, and checking to see if any new planes are spawned. They often spawn a little time after you have flown over an airfield, and sometimes they spawn from another nearby field.
These exes have been progressively rebuilt from an early version, and a number of reported problems have been fixed.

I'm having fun with this wink


Random selection with no enemy AIs:

First I got 262s, then Me410s, then Stukas all in the same mission wink

I made a slight adjustment to the released exe so that if the enemy encounter plane is "Do not select" then the ini entry is set to zero and there are no encounter planes.
If it is not, then the ini entry is set to 10 and you get encounter planes.
This means that the player has no need to edit the ini file.
I'll wait for more feedback about the exe in general before releasing this version.

How to do the bounce smile

Download the latest 160 exes from here as a 7-zip self installer:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/gf7u7si5sia6izz/EAWVersions30Jan2019.exe/file

Run the 7-zip installer in your 160 folder and it will add the latest exes to your "EAW Versions" folder.

Run the "PlaneSetExeTheatreSwitchV3.exe" and select one of the new exes, select the "10-ETO default" planeset and the "00-Default ETO Theatre".
Run EAW, select a single mission and set up a Spitfire IXc Merlin66 in a fighter sweep like this:

Note that in red at the top the "Bf 110C-4" was set as the encounter plane.

This was done by selecting it as the enemy secondary plane, then clicking "HERE" at the top.
When that had been done I changed the enemy secondary to "Do not select".




Flying the mission I pressed "E" to locate the airfield

I flew over it and kept checking in 6 o'clock view.
A warning appeared about unidentified aircraft:

Turning, and clicking "T" picked up one of the 110s

Once you feel OK with this then you can experiment, with AI planes and different targets.
To get 262s you will need to fly 1945 missions.
You can set the enemy encounter plane as "Random".
The key to the whole process it selecting the enemy secondary plane and "CLICK HERE"
