Thanks Col. Gibbon,

I am patient, I have waited this long, I am just excited that the community is still going, I thought this masterpiece had been laid to rest.

Jel, the links in your signature don't show up on my PC. Might be one of the blocker programs that I employ but I really don't know.

Keep it in mind that other users may have the same problem.


Heck, even paranoids have enemies.

EAW150 has been released and it is a big change from 140.

In summary:
1. In 150 the theatre folders (such as SPAW) do not contain planesets, and have no aircraft related material in them at all.

2. All the planesets are in a "PlaneSets" folder.

3. There are default extended "weapons.dat", "weapons.str" and "hrdpoint.dat" files which the exe must use as there are no others. Loadout files have been adjusted accordingly.

4. You select your planeset, select your theatre and play EAW. This is done via a new GUI with two user levels:




At level two you can make your own aircraft selections from the "Aircraft_Inventory" folders and fly your own choice of aircraft.

You do not need to make a full set of 30 planes, I have some working with just seven or eight.




The whole thing is far more flexible than 140, which itself was far more flexible than any previous version of EAW.

New info coming soon..........

see the SimHQ post below:


EAW works on Linux Mint 18 Mate with Wine


Note that is Linux Mint 18 Mate
- not tested KDE or Cinnamon (they seems to have issues with Plasma 5 so I don't recommend them for now.)
Or others.
But I highly recommend this Mint Mate it is awesome, fast, user friendly, very tight!
See DistroWatch.com
for more info on Mint or other Linux, reviews etc.

I'm getting some nice framerates on my Toshiba Flagship running Mint 18 Mate flying EAW in Wine on Linux. Up to 64fps with 1.28e even!
Averaging 45 near bmber groups.
And that's with an old Wine version 1.6.2! Currently in testing with newer versions. Stay tuned!

PM MrJelly or read old threads. Or goto Mediafire in MrJelly's signature and read the installation readme. Or wait to see if he will contact you.

Thanks Mark smile

berrik:
Use this link to the multiplayer set-up

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/6tb6c8hka9vts/160Multiplayer

You do not have to play multiplayer with it, but it gives a good range of aircraft and theatres in a single installation. No CD is needed.

There is a file manager included which was written in Visual Basic. You may need to install the Visual Basic runtime files.
[Linked Image]
The two downloads are both 7-zip self-installers.

"160MPInstall.exe" gives you a complete "160MP" folder. It contains my "eaw.ini" file which you may need to modify or replace to suit your system.

"Runtimes.exe" gives you a "Runtimes" folder which contains a "setup.exe". This file needs to be run to install the runtimes files. It is not an EAW installation.
You will know if you need to install the runtimes files if you get an "OCX missing" error when you run "PSM160GRV2.exe" to select the theatre, planeset and eaw.exe that you want to try first.

Old School EAW (Classic 1.2)

For EAW 1.2 one of, if not the best addon (argueably) is OAWUnified

Downloads and the installer is available in 3 languages English, French and German

OAW Unified comes with @ 179 aircraft skins, flight models (fm's) and various campaigns, addons, terrains, and The improved EAWrp2.6 flight, gunnery and damage model.
The addons are managed by use of the OAWSelector program by Mr Jelly, which is abile to load various desired complete sets as well as other scripts for custom setups that are included.
It runs under Windows but you may be able to run it under Wine (a software layer for windows progams to run on linux) also after getting and enable the runtimes (in wine).

The install is easy in that you just extract the zip and run the archive exe (on windows or in wine on linux) pointing it to install into a pre-existing stock EAW 1.2 folder*

* you will need EAW 1.2 first of course

Well we still don't have one of these;
EECH Wiki

but EAW and the code is still around, although not actively being developed.
Would be nice if we could clean up the sticky threads here as they are confusing and outdated.

be sure to also visit the EAW Help Site for detailed EAW information.
