I actually never had that patch. However, I installed EAW 1.2, added the 'Great Shot' add-on in its entirety over it; removed the file 'main2pic;' and added a complete 1.28e install, which I had downloaded from SimHQ, directly upon the 1.2/Great Shot install. It worked fine. It seems others have directed you to the Great Shot files. It's a nice compilation of older, but quality, mods with nice skins and sounds. I'd recommend looking at the extras, also.

Thank you for your quick reply, and explanation.  I particularly appreciate very full explanations because I am Ignorant, as previously mentioned.  Hopefully not stupid, but definitely ignorant.

I will have to try out your suggestion, and play it.  I promise to give it a fair shot.  That said, and risking heresy, the BAT mods on top of IL-2 1946 game, as well as certain mods on top of the "First Eagles" game make for some very tough competition.  It's all good, and thank you very much!

AS an afterthought, I have most of the early versions of EAW, up to 1.28E, installed, and runnable.  Is it possible to improve on 1.28E while still maintaining backwards capability for mods created prior to that point?  Is installing 1.29 version of the game a distinct advance over 1-28E?

Naturally, I have V1.60 and EAWPRO up and runnable.

Your suggestions are invited.

 I cannot get 1.29 to work, at all. But 1.28E works backwards nicely for me and I can mix and match quite widely, while still keeping the improved dm's and fm's, not to mention that much-improved AI. I think that EAW1.28's AI is better balanced than IL-2's. Still, it's great to have both.

Hmmmmmmmm.  I wonder how I was fortunate enough to "settle" on 1.28E as my base EAW version.  Probably just luck, back then.  Napoleon considered "luck" as one of the foremost attributes of any soldier.

I confess to like V1.28E, but am open to suggestions.  Might be the "sweet spot", so to speak. 

I am more than willing to fly any and all sims, as long as they play decently.  I have put up with a fair amount of coaxing some sims to play.  For the most part, the more coaxing they need, the less the basic sim is found to be worth doing so.  Nevertheless, there are some diamonds to be found.

My ancient, but upgraded computer allows me to play IL-2 with almost no limitations, just for reference.  EAW, in all its' permutations, has never been an issue, as far as playability goes.  Screen garbling is another issue, and occasionally very objectionable. I'm somewhat familiar with the Wrapper programs suggested for using with EAW.

I mention this last because it might make a difference in your future comments, and FYI, as pertinent.

Thank you for your response, BTW.  Exactly what was needed.

I think theres a 1.29 version floating around that Col Gibbon had from Jel.

I think it was a stripped down to the essentials. I may have it, but someone else may find it first.

      I'm in need of ANY EAW archives / files / zips that any old EAW pilots have sitting on there HD or backup CDs.
      Can you find it with in you to search for your old (and new) EAW files from back in the day (or today) so that I can archive them in my Shared Public Resource?
      I'm in need of even more files to fill the resource before the files or old EAW users are no longer available.
      To see the organization I did , please got o my EAW Help Site:  https://eaw.neocities.org/ and find the download link there.
      Please contact me by PM here on CombatAce or I'm on SimHQ too. Let me know where to download your files from or send them to me.
      Thank You in advance.

      I have written and rewritten my Help Doc EAW using Multiplayer
      I hope they are helpful for anyone.
      (I included most of the info I could test and scrounge up)

      https://eaw.neocities.org/multiplayer.html


      If there's anything I should add to these two docs, please feel free to post here to let me know if there's anything I missed or what not. Thanks.

      Hi everybody. I´m a big fan of European Air War game, i was wondering if you have a link to download it for Windows 10, and bring me back to the best WW2 combat simulator ever.
