EAW Tool Pack

Recommended Posts

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.

Just a notice, slight update to the tool pack. No need to re download it though unless your after some CDF extractors and other minor changes.
I will be adding more to the pack, but if your gonna re-download it now, could you please offer feedback and provide readmes for some or any tool you know how to use. You can post here or PM me. Thanks.

I also sorted out the CDF extraction tools on the files section of the help site. Reduced the archive count and repacked what I had left.
Note: The Win98 (CDFRW.exe) extractor will not run on 64 bit systems as its a 16bit program.
Other file descriptions added as well.

Found a WindowsXP CDF Manger(works in Win10), Extractor and such in my pile. I've added that to the tool pack.
Added a bunch of readme's and some more tools to cover other areas of modifying EAW.
I've uploaded and will be uploading updates to the tool pack archive, so give a week to download it again as i may update it several times during a weeks period of time.....and sometimes I upload it several times aswell.

Since i don't know how to use all tools, and neither to newbies, there are tutorials and reference material downloadable from my files section to help you out.
Don't be afraid to look around into the file archives as some documentation is still hidden within some tools I have not posted in the tool pack yet.

Still need help to fill out the readmes if anyoe can help give 1 a description of the tool, and 2 usage, 3 tips and the like to help out and shorten a newbies time using a specific tool.

Hey, NP.

But with the rate of new help is diminishing and my dream of readmes with the short info they require to be helpful to use, is unlikly. But I'll keep pulgging away and the 3dz model doc and tools related. (found more tools that maybe of some help, if you want to DL and take alook), another week and I should have to take a break, so wait a few days.

Really? I didnt want to bother you.

But theres some old and new tools in the tool pack, under /3dztools

I have a few readmes with some info, but others I do not.
If you have time go ahead and DL the tool pack to see what im talking about. I've updated it yesterday I think.

Thanks.

      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?
      etc..
       
      Thank you in advanced for the help and tips.

      View File EAW Install Files
      #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. JelFixV2.exe:
      #8. AcesOverEurope129.exe:
       
      Possible issues:
      You may need the VB runtime files for the filemanagers and OAW.
      Let me know if there are any problems

      I have written and re-written my Multiplayer Help Document.
      I hope it is helpful for anyone.
      (I included most of the info that I could).

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


      If there's anything I should add to this doc, please feel free to post here to let me know if there's anything I missed or what not. Thanks! :)

      I'm an idiot user, but can plainly see that EAW versions of games are best served by having more than one forum.  After all, if the primary depositary goes extinct, where will all the info reside?
      We have all seen extinct sites, and doing so is a very sad thing because all the work the modders that contributed to such extinct sites was in vain.  So, let's not let it happen again.  As is said in the armed forces, "Two is one, and one is none".  
      May I ask that EAW users not only post on alternate sites, but copy and paste their comments/posts here?  Doing so would support the game overall, not to mention this site. The primary goal is support of the EAW/UAW sim, and NOT any particular Site.  FWIW, I have zero connection in regards this site.
      I humbly ask your consideration for the good of the EAW sim, and all its variants.
