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.)
Here's a few videos I have watched on EAW:
One of them mentions my install instructions, which was a surprise, these are by "damsonn".
I think in all of his videos he is using v1.2 on a Win10 64bit system in 3dfxGlide Mode, running nGlide Wrapper at double the res of the EAW standard game , which is defaulted at (640x480).
Note: NGlide cleaning upscales the graphics and cockpit dials, and everything else. (Other wrappers do this too, I just don't remember which ones).
European Air War v1.2 (stock version) running on Windows 10 64-bit - YouTube
European Air War - 2 RAF Campaign Missions - YouTube
European Air War - Luftwaffe Campaign Mission - Bomber Intercept - YouTube
BTW I didn't embed the videos as it looked too big, I prefer videos viewed at there home sites anyhow.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is Emil's old add-on that Modred updated and Jel repacked it into this form.
You may need the VB runtime files for the filemanagers and OAW.
Let me know if there are any problems
