  1. In the "160 Rationalisation and Installation" sticky thread in the EAW forum at SimHQ there are links to the UAW160 installation files. If a player has installed part one and then part two, then they will have already installed Carrier Air War (CAW) when they installed part two, and it is available for selection with the filemanager. One thing that I recommend is the use of the "old map" exe to fly CAW. The "new map" exe uses a very large file which needs too much scrolling for target selection. The big map is great for online play as everything is well separated CAW is a WIP started by Moggy and many other modders in 2006 or thereabouts. I took the available theatre, but used the SPAW TMods to have raised deck carriers and many more TMods. I have not tried any Career games, but I will, to see what happens.
  2. Carrier Air War has been available for some time, and the tile-map has a large part of the Philippines islands: If you do not have CAW installed and want it then let me know
  3. EAW users can fly it in Moggy's IRAQ theatre
  4. There are no competing versions. VBH has attempted to improve the EAW 1.2 exe for the benefit of people with legacy PCs my modifying the eaw.exe file. The code-group has worked with the EAW source code and because of this we have been able to add a large number of new features and routines. These days not many people fly EAW on legacy PCs, and with bigger HDDs they are able to install any number of different versions of EAW, and choose the one they want to use at any given time. It is like a box of chocolates I have 1.2, 1.26e, 1.28, 1.28c, 1.28e, 1.28f, 1.29, UAW150, UAW160, the FXExe and EAWPro on my PCs, as do many other people. It is not a choice of either/or, so there is no competition between versions.
  5. I disagree with RIBob's analysis. If the track record at SimHQ and Combat-Ace is studied you will find the real cause of the problem. In almost all of the cases a provocative statement was made in a post which attacked the work of code-group members. In some cases these statements were outright lies such as the ones which claimed that running EAW1.28 could crash their hard drives. This behaviour put us in a "no win" situation. Do nothing, and let readers believe what they were being told, or defend ourselves by telling the truth, thereby creating conflict. None of the Code Group members have ever been banned, other than one who was banned because of a moderator's mistake. That error was rectified and the ban was given to the person who was meant to receive it in the first place. More recently we had decided to report the posts instead of responding. However, it would seem that these reports just accelerated the closure of the forum. The problem has always been treated as 50-50 (as per RIBob's analysis), but if you check the track record it is 100-0.
  6. Since our first one in 1.28c all of our carriers are recognisable as WW2 carriers, unlike some others elsewhere

    I posted this for information in a reply to a PM, but then decided to make it public in order to demonstrate the amazing amount of work that Ray has done in this theatre. This is Ray's TMod list from SPAW2019FC.

There are more too, for the Japanese carriers. Note also the number of individual ships from 177 to 229. The un-named ones are spare slots that could be used in future Some are moving (mv) with a wake, others are static (sta) without a wake. Some are planes parked on the carrier decks. This is just the list. On the target map he has positioned 22,628‬ TMods, an average of 73 for every target. By anybody's standards this is an incredible amount of work. Well done Ray Jel
  8. Here is the original raised carrier from 1.28c done over ten years ago
  9. Yes This is my limited multiplayer folder but all of the theatres highlighted in blue have at least one working carrier. In some cases there may be only British carriers, because there were no operational Axis carriers in the European and Mediterranean theatres, and the US carriers were in the Pacific.
  10. The trick for offline players is to fly host-only multiplayer which allows you to set not only your home base, but to set the friendly primary, enemy primary and enemy secondary bases. This allows for games with four different carriers involved. Here there are five, with the target also being a carrier:
  11. A few carrier shots in SPAW2019 They are on water tiles and they have raised decks so you can take off from them and land on them. Additionally they make good targets because there is a lot of additional stuff on the decks (such as planes and guns) that you can destroy when you attack them. It is a whole barrel of fun
  12. I have copied the first part of my "STICKY" post from SimHQ: ******************************************************************************** This thread has been made a "sticky" so please do not post in it. If you have questions or need to comment please send me a PM ******************************************************************************** I have rebuilt the 160 installation from my current folder. It is a simple two part installation. Part 1 is here: 160InstallationPart1 The file you download is named "UAW160.exe" and it is a 7-zip self installer. When you run it it creates a "UAW160" folder, which has the minimum files and folders for a working installation test. Make sure that your joystick is plugged in before you run the eaw.exe. Otherwise you will get a serious cockpit shake and will not be able to control your aircraft. When you run the "eaw.exe" (maybe with your own "eaw.ini") it should give you the UAW default ETO theatre and aircraft. This will be a test to see if your system works. ********************************************************************************** Now if I recall correctly you downloaded and installed "Part 1". For some reason you got a CTD when you ran it, and I never found out whether or not you got it to work. I just downloaded it to test and it worked on my Win 10 PC, so try it again, but before you launch EAW go to one of your other EAW folders that works, run a single mission in the ETO theatre in d3d mode, then exit. Copy your "eaw.ini" file from that folder and paste it into the "UAW160" folder created by the "Part one" download. Then run the new EAW and report back. ********************************************************************************* I must add that many players have downloaded Part1 and installed it successfully on Win 10.
  13. I was not able to edit my previous post, so I had to make this new one in order to post this question. What versions of EAW are you able to run on your Win 10 PC?
  14. Some of the piccies were taken when one of Ray's 2019 planesets was loaded. If you want to try them you need to make sure that Ray's 2019 planes have been installed on your PC. Check your UAW160 folder. If they have been installed then there should be an "ALT PLANES" folder in your "Aircraft_Inventory" and a "SWOTL-Late" folder in your "Planesets" folder. I posted a link to the installer in a thread in the SimHQ EAW forum. Right-click on the link below and open it in a new tab to see the post with the link in it: Link in a SimHQ Post Jel
  15. Is this the same question yet again? In a discussion re- installing UAW160 on your Win10 PC you were having problems, but I do not know if this was ever resolved. I am running UAW160 on my Win10 PC and I have never had any trouble. Many other people are running it in Win10, including some who are using it online for sessions at GameRanger. The only other person who has reported installation problems is Stratos, but it turns out that he cannot run any version of EAW in Win10, so his problem is not UAW160 specific If there are problems then to fix them I need to be able to generate the problem on my PC. As I cannot do that I cannot help.
