  1. Where to get EAW

    Once in a galaxy far far away I owned EAW! Things moved on and EAW went to the CD rack in the sky and my computer went through a road to Damascus convertion to XP. The new developments for EAW look fantastic and I would love to fly it again. Couple of questions if i may. Where can I now pick up a copy of EAW? and how can it be got to run on XP? Thanks
  2. Looking to get a WW1 Sim

    Another WW1 sim often over looked is the mod for Fighter Squadron Screaming Demons. Although based on an old engine the detailing is superb. Flight models good. Plenty of aircraft and they even include seaplane action. Downside is no Campaign but there is an excellent quick mission builder and full mission builder!! I rate this little sim very highly and its freeware!! The developer ArgonV is very helpful and happy to give tips or answer questions. Well worth a look.
  3. Help Please!

    I use FE Gold. I have a number of excellent add on aircraft. I have just installed the solid objects mod. Now my terrain in all areas has no trees at all. Buildings are there and they are solid!! But no trees or other ground objects. Any idea whats wrong!! Thanks!!!
  4. IMO trees not being collision modelled is a big flaw in FE. In real life you avoid ground obstacles or pay the price! I believe buildings are not collision modelled either.
  5. Whilst cleaning out my attic I came across a set of maps of the western front which were originally supplied by Rowan for their "Flying Corp" gold. I fired up OFF, dug out my old Nav protractor, Dalton computer and dividers and worked out a three way point flight path and then flew it in free flight. I found that distances in OFF were a little shorter than those on the map and OFF has more airfields than those shown on the chart but otherwise very useful and accurate. If anyone still has their copy of "Flying Corp Gold" dig out those charts and give them a try!!

    Thanks!! It's hard to keep up with you guys!! If British industry worked at your levels we would have no recession!!
  7. I hope so. Now the darker evenings are here I have more time. I will send to you all I have done by end of October. I am also looking at campaigns for the Bristol Fighter, an RNAS campaign and one for the 00/400. Obviously all will not be ready by the end of October!!
  8. Great update!! We still need someone to give us an RE8!! Wish I could help but I can wreck an Airfix kit!! I am still tinkering with missions and hopefully will have a small pack to upload soon.
  9. New rockets! New Ballons! Missed the balloon with all rockets (typical I cant hit the side of the barn when shut in the barn!), Used machine gun, Had desired effect........it blew up! Sadly I was so close it turned my kite into a crisp! Anyone fancy rosted pilot...apparently we taste like BBQ pork!

    Thanks for explaining. Certainly flying these machines is a challenge! I also noticed that the rudder works fine but feed in left rudder and the graphics show the rudder turning the opposite way and vice versa!

    First I have to say what a work of art the Sopwith Strutter is! A great addition to this sim! I do have a flight model question. The flight model is fine as is. The problem I had was following a collision I lost 3/4 of both the top and lower starboard wings. However I was able to bring the machine down and land her by giving full opposite rudder. I would have thought that much damage would have sent the machine down in a spiral.
  12. Joystick issue

    That is a very good point. I think I will leave it alone! I will just have to get use to looking like Charles Atlas (for those of you old enough to remember him)!
  13. Joystick issue

    I fly FE using my MS Force Feed Back 2. The only problem I have is the return to centre spring is far to strong. I am developing arms like tree trunks from just poling the stick about. It's like dogfighting a Jumbo Jet! My other sims I have the return to centre spring off and just use the forces on the stick which IMO gives a far better feel. I have set a new Joystick profile for FE with the sping off but still when I fire up FE the stick goes heavy. Do any of you good people know how I can lighten up the control. I also posted this by mistake in WW1 discussion. Sorry Thanks
