I bought it a couple of years ago from GoG; just haven't started playing it. Sad, huh?

Back in the day when I got my first PC for home/gaming (around August of 2000), I saw three WW2 flight sims on the shelf: EAW, Jane's WW2 Fighters, and Fighter Squadron: Screamin' Demons Over Europe. I studied the information on the boxes: flyable planes, screenshots, etc. It was a tough call, but I already owned Jane's Fighters Anthology and loved the graphics on the box, so I went with Jane's WW2 Fighters. WW2 combat flight sims have never stopped evolving and far surpassed those three sims, so I never did go back and buy or play EAW despite my years of dedication to TK's Strike Fighters series.

The yellow values on the top right of the screen indicate that this was not the GoG or Steam release, but one of the 1.28 series released by what is known as "the code group".

EAW was a great game 20 years ago. Unfortunatly it does not run on my current computer.

Have you checked out the latest versions?
I have it running in Windows 10.

Check the EAW forum at SimHQ- there are several download links in the posts and you do not have to be a member (I am not).
