This thread contained many links to patches.
I have assumed that those who needed them got them.
As there is a new single installation for UAW160 the patches are redundant, so I have removed all my posts containing links to patches.
In any case a number of these patches have been removed from the download sites, so the links do not work.

Check the first post in the UAW160 2020 thread if you need a full installation smile

In the "Default Theatre" there is a "TARGMAP.PIC" file. Copy it and paste it into the "ETO Searchlight Theatre".
Let it overwrite the existing file.
It will give you the big ETO pilot map for GameRanger sessions with this theatre smile

I have also created a couple of multiplayer scripts smile

In multiplayer fly early evening, and not in 1945 smile


Looks fantastic, Tony. Will the searchlights work offline?

Yes.
They are a novelty, and they do not actually track the planes, but it makes night missions more interesting.

You should try host-only Multiplayer, you do not actually fly online but you use the multiplayer settings which have more choices than single mission flying.

I put this post in the "UAW160 2020" thread for all players, but I am posting it here too smile


Moggy and Ray had the idea of having negative scores for destroying TMods, such as cathedrals, churches and hospitals so that the players lose points for doing bad things.
The previous exes only accepted scores from 0 to 255, and would CTD with negative ones.
The data type needed to fix the problem is not used in the source code, so I had to define a new data type that basically allows values from -128 to 127.
I called it "SBYTE" which is a signed byte.
There are thousands of cases of "UBYTE", the unsigned byte, in the eaw.exe, and previously the "Score" was set as a "UBYTE" .
It is now set as an "SBYTE", so we can have negative points.

Moggy did a test in IRAQ and achieved a negative score for destroying some religious sites

I was going to invite Moggy to visit after this virus thing is over and done with, but now I am having second thoughts as we have a mosque in our village frown

Thanks for the full installer Jel. Much more easier for newcomers. I didn't installed since I have an updated working installation but will be much easy to do a fresh installation if things go wrong for some reason.
Might be a good idea to stick it on 1.6 subforum so people could find him quicky.

Cheers

I am currently testing scripts and making more. There will be an update later today with the new scripts and a fix for the "invisible bridge" problem that ShoGun encountered a few days ago.

This was a new script, escorting Kates to torpedo the Enterprise in "SPAW2019FinalCutMP"

Jel, perhaps China is only intended for multiplayer, but when I try it offline on my 1.60, it loads up to 100%, followed by a ctd. This happens either with mods added or with all mods removed.

Mine plays single missions offline OK.
Don't ever try an instant mission with a new theatre
Instant missions use date from previous missions V

On further investigation. It so happened that I used an early SPAW planeset to test China. For whatever reason, on my system, the early SPAW planesets seem non-compatible with China. With later SPAW and various other planesets, it worked fine.

Postscript: this is a very appropriate theatre right now-all we need now are some nukes to spread on it as a thank you for their Red Batflu!

Good.
Which early SPAW PS caused the problem?
I would like to replicate the problem if possible to find out the real cause smile
