So here is a link to a pack I'm trying to put together of misc tools and other types of eaw files to help someone out.
I plan to have a small readme with every file, and perhaps one day a better readme for most of the files, all depends on the help I recieve and the information out there.
Any feedback on the pack is appreciated.
When I round out most of the problems with the tools and readmes, I intend to upload it to Combat Ace file archives.
If you can take a look at the file , inside and provide any info I should add that would be greate.
What can experienced users tell me about EAW 3DZ modelling, RS and tools?
I'm not trying to build anything specific and I don't have a whole lot of time to learn, But highlights would be favorable.
Like I know for EAWv1.2 there are specific programs used. I think I have them all. Unfortunately some are DOS , some are WindowsOS usage.
I know you plan out the model before you begin using the 3DZ Studio program (which one is best?)
How would I keep the RS in check as I add to the model?
Thank you in advanced for the help and tips.
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.
You may need the VB runtime files for the filemanagers and OAW.
Let me know if there are any problems
