What doesnt work? the link or UAW160?

I'm sure it will evetualy work. I can try to help if you want, I been through most of the situtations regarding eaw.

Is the game CTD when clicking on the exe or when setting up a configuration from the external frontend, then launching?

Is there anything else you can point out?

That is quite odd. I run 1.6 from my PlaneSetTheatreSwitchV4.0, via a shortcut to it from my desktop. I also am on Win 7 and have had no difficulties. Ensure you start with the stock planeset and theatre to begin with. Put 1920x1080 resolution in the eawini if you have a widescreen monitor. Maybe even try a reinstall.


Another possibility: try with no joystick and no "eaw.ini".

try what Jel said above, thats a last ditch effort. But run the eaw.exe directly from the games main folder to avoid any other issues. Then try to run from external frontend next time with no joystick / controls.

Then there is this to consider if you had two joysticks previously

The preferred device is critical if there is more than one controller.
When I have my rudder pedals I must set the J/S as the preferred device.

Don't confuse him Jel with stick issue, until he trys it without his stick first.
To much info smile

But yeah that prefered stick issue is the result of the way eaw uses them, and autodects them. Alot different then most games, expecialy this day and age.

He was using two and even if one is disconnected the two may remain as selectable in the "advanced" setting. I am not sure, but I suspect that the two J/S thing is the cause of the problem, because it is not the video card.

Oh they ramain selectable even though he unplugged them and restarted his system?

Then maybe goto the device manager window and select detect hardware / changes by right clicking the computer name ant the top. Windows should then realize then that there un plugged. If not unistall the controllers.

Its weird there still showing though.


The video card issue in the last 10 or more years shouldn't be an issue, even the the recent integrated chips should display the menu. (if not use d3dwindower or other wrapper).

Ok, only one stick (is a Saitek X52 HOTAS), no EAW.ini. Same CTD at trying to start EAW.ini.

This thread was meant to be a tutorial, but these posts are "diluting" the intentions. I will certainly let you know what happens. He has read my PM but not replied.
It suggested that he should try to install the 1.28eFAW download (link provided) to see if that caused the same problems.

I have had a reply from Stratos and he could not launch the 1.28eFAW set-up, so it looks as though he cannot run any version of EAW at the moment.
He will try with no joysticks.

I just used one of my Win 7 drives to fly with Lolo at GameRanger.
The in-game screenshots were fine, but the others were corrupted like this:

I will do some more work, using my other Win7 drive, and wrappers to see if I can find a solution.
It is not critical but sometimes it is nice to be able to record the set-up.
