btw, for now VonBeerhoven always claimned he cant install EAW1.28 version on his PC, does this changed now or did he test SPAW, which is ONLY made for EAW1.28c, with his EAWFX.exe??
That would explain some of his problems. lol

Congratulations, guys, to this awesome effort - Ill try this asap on my new PC.
Does this mean for me I can play EAW again - not only on my old Win98 rig? This would be wonderful thumbsup

BTW,the P-40 FPS issue was solved years ago,do a search onit,one of the 3DZs is huge,and wrong,once replaced it rendered normally and the FPS issue went away...do a forum search around 2005,maybe 2006


Which files is this and where can i find it? Maybe Sandbagger can include it on Captain Kurts and Flying Tigers pages where one can find the HiRes P-40s

The Hi Res P-40 will not benefit from any older fixes that exist for the P-40. It was developed from an older model as were all when he did it, but this one has made EXTENSIVE use of piggybacks and action codes for moving features, in and out of the cockpit. Some elements have nearly a dozen piggybacks on them, and they are spread all over the model. Col. Gibbon is in the process of rebuilding the model to eliminate all of these pigybacks, and I am building an "interchangeable" nose for it. Hopefully we can get this model running smoothly.

Cheers!

Thanks CJ.

That model satrted life as the PAW P-40 model! It did not even have a proper cockpit, or Prop. All that wss added to the model over the years, ending in Capt. Kurt's superb P-40 model which worked in D3D but never worked in Glide.

The new model is clean, so it will not suffer from the problems which the old one did, and will be available to skin in bith 8 and 24bit. wink

Thats excellent news to hear, gentlemen. Captain Kurts P-40 is really worth those efforts but it gives me problems in my DAW set. Not to mention Ades P-40 skins...

And most of all...the new Kittyhawk surely will be glad to be in company of a nice Tomahawk... exitstageleft

clang - "Error 7217" nope
..was doing all according to the readme.

So - where to begin with? I thought 1.28c would solve the problem?

Could someone point to the procedure?
Thanks in advance...

What video card are you using? I have an infamous nvidia card (6800 GT) and my vanilla install of SPAW worked flawlessly. I even have pretty current drivers (191.07). I did notice the "plane flying around the microprose globe" did not play but I figured that was part of the fix.

1.28C should not give a 7217 error. It may give garbled screens, but not 7217. Your post suggests you were not running the 1.28C exe.
Please supply details of your system anyway so that we have at least some information to work with.

Now your verdict...?

Btw, I use the exe provided first in your setup - from 27.10.2009. Isnt this the 1.28c?

Fran, it is strange that you are getting a 7217 with an ATI card. I have a 4860 and drivers from mid summer. I get SPAW and EAW in general to run without any errors. The little plane circles the MS Globe and the only thing is that the briefing screen tears.

Have you tweaked your vid card or is it running stock right out of the box?

Hi Fran,

This is not going to be much help but I too had the dreaded error on a Radeon card a year or so ago but got rid of it by upgrading my drivers as I recall. Ended up with 2 versions running and just had to close down the earlier one. Will try SPAW shortly and feed back any info I get.

Cheers

Peter

Fran this link is for the 2600 and XP

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp

and for driver cleaner pro
http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745

you need to remove the original driver. Do it through control panel

then use driver cleaner pro to completely clean th registry of ATI entries.

Restart you computer and say no to search for and install new drivers. Lrt it use the basic vga driver.

Then run the ATI driver file.

Gday all

Have read thru all this thread but can't find an answer to my query. Will SPAW run in Windows 7/32bit ? I can run bone stock 1.28d EAW.
Specs:
Intel i5 750
4G Ram
Sapphire Radeon 5770 1gb 10.5a Catalyst

If you can run EAW then you can run SPAW, but the screens are made for 1.28c
I have a version of it running in 1.28e

Check the OAW links in my signature- there are some workarounds.
