EAW140 is the latest version of European Air War.
It runs on windows operating systems XP and later, including Windows 10


The key to running EAW140 is the "DirSetExe" manager program



It allows you to switch between different versions of the eaw.exe, and choose a theatre of operations.
There are some advanced settings for people hosting an online game.

EAW140 uses the "planeset" system. The ETO140 theatre has four, plus the original default EAW set of planes:

There is a single file download, and a lot of information in this thread:

There is no way that's EAW lol...Congrats to all those who contributed to making it look like that.
Looks as clear as IL-2 not the 'painted' look that i remember.

I am deeply impressed by the dedication that it takes to keep EAW alive and growing to this day. I still remember the great memories of those campaigns . . . so thank you EAW community for the love and effort! smile


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

Might have to have a search for my old disc. I loved this game back in the early 2000's but could never get it to work further down the track.

Hi Smosh, you don't need your disc, just download Mr Jelly's file (140CDF16Sept2015) and install it smile

EAW works on Linux! - 2016!

*at least on my test machine, with "Wine" software.

Read the thread:

EAW test results on Linux - it works!

How to launch EAW 1.28e on Q40S 1.4.7 (Debian 8, Trinity Desktop - full desktop version, updated to q40s base 1.9.1 with Wine updated to 1.8 installed also) Linux:

note my hardware is old p4 1.7 GHZ, 1 GB RAM, AMD/Ati HD 2400 pro, details here:

EAW test results on Linux - it works!

http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4223962/EAW_test_results_on_Linux_-_it#Post4223962

- Browse and lookup and reviews Q4OS at Distrowatch

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=q4os

and get Q4OS:

http://q4os.org/

Try it with no updates or update it to the version I have which works!

- Plug in your joystick to the Q4OS Linux Computer and boot (in this example is a standard Logi-tech Wingman 3d no force-feedback)

- Copy a complete working EAW folder including your already set up for your joystick eaw.ini file to somewhere like your documents folder or similar, ex. /home/yourusername/Documents
(remember Linux filenames, foldernames are case-sensitive).

There is no 'set-up or install' to do other than the joystick test.
You will run eaw.exe drirectly with Wine via the built-in Q4OS Trinity Desktop menu tools,(Follow the sceenshots below)

- See if your joystick is working. Select Wine control panel:





- select Game Controllers and see if your joystick was detected





- using Krusader file-manager browse and select the eaw.exe and right-click menu

- Select 'open with' , "Wine Windows Prorgam Loader" from that right-click menu.


The next thing you should be in EAW!
That's it!


(screenshot of the menu taken by Pinta image editor (start menu, programs, accesories, graphics, pinta))

For me the game looks and runs exactly as it does on Windows XP.

New test:
EAW 1.2c release also works on Q4OS / Debian Linux

conclusion:
since EAW1.28c release does not use the later 1024 size menu screens files, it should mean that you DO NOT necessarily need a 1.28c+1024, 1.28d, 1.28e or later .exe to run the game on Linux.

General quirks in tests on Linux:

Q4OS:
No sound in Q4OS

Solved:
This is by default not turned on for. I turned it on somehow, either by the sound icon on the taskbar lower right, fiddling with the Kmix mixer settings.
Or start menu, settings, control panel, sound and multimedia, sound system, check 'enable sound'


Not solved:
Getting the error from Wine EAW:
'keylist.str not found'

- if the error occurs before the game menu appears It will stop EAW from loading and ctd (crash to desktop).
- if it occurs after you are in the EAW game menu then it won't ctd, at least under Q4OS, but you'll see the error box after you exit the game back to Linux. Just close that.
Not solved yet but it may be related to joystick / keyboard settings.

Not solved;
The single mission targets selection screen garbled, half-works.
Same with the campaign briefing screen.
This is the classic 'ATI garbled briefing screen' anomaly, same as it occurs on Windows with some ATI or ther cards. It is caused by EAW itself, not a Linux issue so I have no fix for it.

Not solved:
No horizon fog
EAW issue encountered by some ATI or other graphics cards. Not a Linux issue. No fix planned.

This is obviously a personal attack on another forum member.
Please refrain from threats.
What's done, is done.
I can assure you, Hector is gone, and Mr. Jelly is aware of his error.

Murphy.




Well I hope you liked my searchlights and windmills Mr. Jelly, once again, no need to give credit to other's people's hard work. I hope you realise this is not the beginning of the end but maybe the end of the beginning.

Hello,

I'm not new to SimHQ but am new as a registered member on the forums. So, I've been nostalgic as late and have been tracking down a bunch of old combat flightsims from the good old days and installing them. I'm getting some new more recents ones as well. But as far as old goes EAW is one I have and loved, but I am very interested in MrJelly's file which has all the latest updates in one it appears. Is there anyway to get a copy of this file now, or is it only for certain members. Is there anybody willing to tell an old flightsimmer who is coming back for another round later in life what is available for EAW beside MrJelly's file in case I can't get that? So that I can at least make it look and run reasonable good now on a Win 7 PC. Thank you much in advance for any help offered.

It turns out I had tried to access a bad link in a post to get MrJelly's file. I clicked on another and it worked. Still looking for any advice though from anyone who can give me a couple of tips to get started upgrading EAW. Maybe even some sites that support the game and others like it, aside from SimHQ. Undertsand that I've been pretty much absent from combat flightsims for quite a while. Thank you.

I hate to seem blind and I am totally excited to see this community still going, however Mr.Jelly's 140instALL links are all down (or I am dense) is it possible to get directed to his awesome mod?

Thanks!

Hi Tulaig.

Welcome to the community.

Here are the latest file sets.

https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=82D5533B34C75A54!9457&authkey=!AM4iD4Um8_HANmQ&ithint=folder%2cexe

1.40 is still WIP, but the exe's work under most OS's, and run best in Glide. You will need to download a copy of NGlide from here:

http://www.zeus-software.com/downloads/nglide

You also may need the Windower program, but try the game and see how you get on.

Thanks for the responses guys, I guess I am confused I expected a file called 140instALL, so I am not sure which one, or if I should download all of them. I appreciate the fact you took the time to respond to this rookie. I guess I will jump in with both feet and go for it!

again thanks guys for the warm welcome and the help,

Tulaig

Hi Tulaig.

A very good question, my friend. I'm not sure either!

I don't update very often, as I spend my time building things that players destroy. smile

You'll have to wait for Jelly to resurface. He's on other duties this weekend, but I'd bet he'll drop by before breakfast.
