This is not correct.

SPAW was configured to work for both single mission AND campaign mode. We took extraordinary effort to produce historically accurate campaigns that covered 1941-42 with the Guadalcanal campaign and 42-44 with the main campaign. Squadron names, squadron airfield assignments and plane types are accurate.

Don't forget, at the time we did not have the ability to switch plane sets with minimal effort the way we do now so a lot of thought was given as to which planes to include. The final mix was historically accurate down to things like switching F4F's for F4u's very late the Guadalcanal campaign. Same with different models and colors of the Zero. (BTW, this reminds me that the inclusion of a green Zero in the V1 slot was a big deal since the V1 slot had a bunch of unmanned rocket code that kept it from being used by flyable aircraft. This was one of many "first time" experiences that came with the original SPAW)

We also included a couple of non-historical "what if" type planes but we edited the campaign files so that the player wouldn't have to engage these. This may be where the confusion comes in because these planes ARE available in single mission model or, using the old pilot editor you could start a campaign in one of the historical planes and then after one successful mission switch to one of the "what-if" planes.

The later version, SPAW2019FC, is less dependent on the us, the producers, because it allows for an unlimited number of Pacific plane sets or even playing with a set of European planes in the Pacific environment.

That said, for the most part the plane sets I produced for SPAW2019FC do adhere to the same mix of planes as the original. So, for instance the player will find fighters, dive bombers and level bombers in the same slots no matter which time frame is picked. This means the campaigns will work properly with these plane set because many of the campaign files need to see the appropriate plane type in specific slots.


Heck, even paranoids have enemies.

I was not trying to describe the release of SPAW in total, but if you want to nit-pick about an example of a theatre I modified because the positions of the carriers did not allow players to have ground-started online carrier battles in real time, then feel free to do so smile

Hi Tony,

The Flickering appears to be, when I am in the Cockpit view. I have installed NGlide, with a resolution setting of 1366 X 768, I run the File Manager through D3D,
the Graphics Card, is an Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chip Family.

...but what is actually flickering?
Is it the whole screen, the cockpit and instrument panel, things on the terrain?
Which exe, theatre and planeset are you using?

Hi Tony,

If I run the June10th Old Map.exe from D3D Window, independent of the File Manager, the latest Theatre and Plane set is used. The flickering now is constant switching, between the Map view and the Cockpit view,
how do I disable the map view, I am not sure why it keeps switching between the two, the flickering might be eliminated then, as initially this time, the Cockpit View didn't Flicker.

If I do the same in the DXDWND Program, and when I select fly Mission in the Game, the Game starts loading, but then says Error Pic Not Found -1 before it starts, I am not sure why that
is the case, or what setting I should select, or deselect to prevent that occuring ?

Regards

Eddie

I run EAW on Windows 7 with DgVoodoo 2. Works very well for me. I run it on D3D, which gives me widescreen and I also get horizon fog with my nvidia graphics card.

I tried in Win7 this morning using nGlide.

My EAW screen was set to 1024x768 in the "eaw.ini" file. This is essential for Glide3.

My nGlide configuration was this:

There was a little flickering of white objects such as fences on the terrain, but that is "normal" in my case, and it does not bother me smile

Nitpick?

You made an incorrect statement about the nature of the original SPAW, that it was designed for single missions. You were so sure of it that you bolded the text.

I corrected that statement and explained why that wasn't the case.

Full stop.

Part of the design of the original SPAW was to allow missions from carriers. In single missions you could take off from an Allied carrier to attack a Japanese carrier, and after taking off you could accelerate time and approach the target. Because there is no time acceleration this was impossible in multiplayer, hence a multiplayer-friendly theatre was made. I was using this example to illustrate why some multiplayer-friendly theatres had been created. I never said that it was solely designed for single missions, but I did not mention careers because they were irrelevant to the point that I was making.

You comment that SPAW was designed for "single mission" and bolded those words is a pretty definitive statement.

Definitive but incorrect.

Correcting that misstatement is my only reason for intruding here.

Hi Tony,

I have sorted the issue out, I made the alterations like yours in Nglide, and changed the eaw.ini File resolution to 1024 x 768, all the Graphics, and the Cockpit View, no longer shake doing a strange moving back and forth thing.

The issue appeared to be some of the Controls, were in Joystick Mode, but if you click the Default Key Option in the Menu, the Keys all go to Keyboard operated, so I did for all 3 Options, and the issue has been fixed ))

I run the File Manager, through the D3D Windower Program.

Many thanks for all your help

Regards

Eddie Winch ))

Two questions smile
1. Where did the "eaw.ini" file that you are using come from?
2. Are you using a joystick?

I am using a Logitech Extreme 3D PRO and the "eaw.ini" has the map screen toggle set in this line:

PILOT MAP=Joystick_Btn_12

Check the "eaw.ini" file then and set the "PILOT MAP=" value to one of your keys that is not used for something else. It is a toggle switch that displays the pilot map when you are in-flight when you click it, and turns it off when you click it again.
Where are you located?
