EAW Code-Group Standalone

Recommended Posts

EAW Code-Group Standalone

Each one of these files can be downloaded separately. You do not need to download the entire large archive.
(These packs where originally uploaded and posted by Jel back in 2019 I think.)

#1. EAW126.exe:
Gives you a 1.26E folder with no addons.
The 1.2-E exe is effectively a 1.2 exe with a no CD crack and some other modifications which I can no longer remember.

#2. EAW12X-126E.exe:
Gives you what is effectively a 1.26E folder with OAW.
OAW only has the two "E-" folders available so the user can pick either the 1.26E exe or the 1.2X exe from the code group with the 7217 fix
The default ETO theatre is used.

#3. 128eFAW2016.exe:
Gives you a stand-alone folder with  the 2016 version of Finnish Air War.
It includes the FAW manager.
The EAW exe used is a 1.28e version, dated the 27th November 2016, which was compiled by the code group.

#4. EAW129 July2016:
Gives you a stand-alone UAW1.29 installation
It has the old and new map versions of the 1.29 exe, and 9 different theatres.
BoB, DAW, ETO with planesets, Malta, Ray's 2015 ETO, SWOTL, SPAW, SAW, ETO Trains and barges.
The "DSP128-9.exe" is provided as the file-manager.
There is a file in the LongDirSets folder named "Mediterranean Air War (Malta and North Africa)" which should have been removed as it causes a CTD when selected. DAW and Malta are there in any case.
However,DAW has the original dodgy planeset with some aircraft having the wrong nationality. The Malta theatre is just about the same, but has a more realistic planeset.

#5. 1.28c_JellyPack.exe:
Installs 1.28c with the DirSetExeManagerV5. filemanager.
This enables you to select one of three versions of the eaw.exe, and eight theatres in addition to the default 1.28C ETO theatre which had the Allied Carrier.
The theatres are DAW, KAW, Malta, Russia-Germany (winter), SWOTL, SPAW, SPAW45 and SAW.

#6. 129EAW640x480.exe:
This installs the special version of the 1.29 old map exe which uses 640x480 screens.
It has a filemanager and a number of experimental WIP theatres that Moggy was working on. These were added to test the exe, but some are of little use as they are incomplete
There is also the 1.28c version of VBH's Pacific Tide III.
This version of the 1.29 exe was made for modders who want to re-vamp old theatres and use the 640x480 screens, but allowing the additional features of UAW1.29 to be used if required.

#7. AcesOverEurope129.exe:
This is Emil's old add-on that Modred updated and Jel repacked it into this form.


Possible issues:
You may need the VB runtime files for the filemanagers and OAW.
Let me know if there are any problems

What is the description of #8?

And the mysterious #7 download?


For some old info on the Code-Groups unofficial versions like 1.28-1.29 see my EAW Help site.

That Help Document (The link above) doesn't include recent changes within the last few years (2016toNOW) to the older versions.
I was unable to find the time to gather the info from the old posts that Jel did make about them.
However that Help Doc should give you a good idea what to expect.

Call me stupid--and some have done so-- but what I want is a simple-to-run V1.29 that does not require a lot of skull-sweat to install and run.  IOW, a version of 1.29 that is as simple to run as the original game, with no fussing around.

To my thinking, anything else is a step-away from the original game, and that's not what I am asking-for.

I certainly appreciate the optional choices, but what I'm asking for is the most-advanced version of the original game, with no great differences from the original choices/options menu.  In short, running the most advanced version of the original game just like the original game was run.

Sorry If I sound demanding, or like a jackass.   Don't mean to do so.  Probably my fault for not describing my requirements better, and possibly my fault for not fully understanding what has been offered.

Extract 129  to a safe location like you would have practiced with 1.2 and delete the eaw.ini that comes with it, then run eaw.exe as far as I know it should start up with standard screens.

I have not had anything but 1.2 and an un-offical hack of the 1.26 and the un-official 1.60 versions up and running in the past year maybe.
EAWPRO is a given and that's similar to 1.2 with the special effects etc though.

      Just a note,
      Normally running EAW natively on WinNT machines, EAW won't run or correctly if the filename is not eaw.exe. (Campaigns/Careers will not save correctly)
      However after some test when running EAW within a Wrapper Program you can have as many game.exe's in the games folder you want, they just need to be named differently, such as eaw12.exe, eaw12a.exe, eaw12x.exe, eaw126e.exe etc.
      (You should at least have one exe, preferably the standard 1.2 as eaw.exe in your games folder so the noCD function works with it).
      You just have to have a shortcut within the wrapper program pointing to each exe.
      (I've added this and more info to my web site now and continue to explore more ideas)

      Now that EAW is running well in the DxWnd wrapper, its has been quit here. :)
      Anyhow, anyone still having issues when EAW is run in the DxWnd wrapper (and that had DL my custom profile settings for that wrapper)?

      New Help Document of sorts. (I'm still working on it)
      This doc tells you the three methods I know to have multiple installs of EAW.
      Most of us just to full installs and copy the game folder to make new installs. The other methods are not much use anymore, other than for testing stuff out.

      Anything going on with EAW?
      I get plenty of visits still to my site. I wonder if the few pilots are getting enough help?

      If you have the GOG release, the Campaign Films (The cut scenes) will tend to crash the game during Career Modes when they go to play the .smk movies. This is true for the standard MPS EAW Game as well, just more common.
      You can download a 'empty' MOVIES.CDF file and drop it into your EAWv1.2GOG version game folder and it will allow the game to get past the cut scene, by skipping it.
      Get the Empty Movies.CDF here at CombatACE in the EAW Downloads if you need it. (Its 7-zip so make sure you have that program to un zip it.)
