Basic EAW 1.40 Installation available

Recommended Posts

In line with a development in a thread at SimHQ I have put together a basic installation download, and am making it public.

1. You need to make a new folder and name it "EAW140"
2. Put copies of the following CDFs in it as they are not included:

Movies.CDF
Music.CDF
Speech1.CDF
Speech2.CDF
Speech3.CDF
UKBrief.CDF
USBrief.CDF
WSOUND.CDF

3. If you have one put a copy of your "eaw.ini" file in it.

4. Download this file which is a 7-zip self installer, put it in your "EAW140" folder, and run it:

  140 basic install

You will get the 1.40 equivalent of the EAW 1.2 installation plus additional stuff that the exe needs.
It is set up to be expanded by downloading more theatres such as the extended ETO version with four planesets, SPAW, DAW, SAW and IRAQ. Some of these make good use of features in 1.40 that are not present in other exes.

Use the DirSetExeManager to make these selections.

In 1.40 a planeset must be selected so select Planeset1 even though it is the only one available.

Hey Jel

 

I'm getting a error couldn't find plane.dat, then it locked my computer up, after rebooting it worked ok. people might need to reboot before loading it up after install, I don't know. Question, does this support 512x512 textures now?

It supports 512x512 bmp textures which need dummy 512x512 tpc files.

The error you got is what happens when you do not select a planeset- check my previous post.


I have a no CDFs version running!

I thought we needed a new screen- this is a nice one of Ades:

Shogun and I just tried it online at GameRanger. It worked beautifully.

Great to fly the old default planes again.

Groundstarted intercept in 190A-4 and Doras vs Liberators and P38H escorts.

When I was low on ammo I landed at a friendly base and re-armed. Returning to the fray I was able to catch the last of the escorts as it was landing at its home base.

Great fun in real time!

Wow that's really cool! Allways wanted to be able to re-arm. And also use the original skins at 512x512. Is there a how to on how to skin stock 3dz's with 512 skins, or is that possible?

"Iron Mike" Pluhar  posts only occasionally these days in the SimHQ EAW forum.

He has done quite a lot of 512x512 skinning so I will try to locate him.

 

Re-arming can be done by landing a plane that is not seriously damaged at a friendly airfield and parking with the engine off close to a hangar.

Text messages on screen tell you when it starts, then when it is completed. It takes a little time.

 

Cheers

For reasons I have communicated via PMs the files are no longer available via the links posted in this thread. However, they should be available soon- I am awaiting a reply from an orgainisation who contacted me recently seem to be intersted in EAW.

Hi wiki
I have been away visiting family and friends in Australia for several weeks, but with with limited internet access and just the files on this laptop. On Thursday this week we will be heading back to France with a four day break in Singapore. Once we are settled back in I will be able to respond properly

 

Jel.
