Aces over Europe is a self-installing mod from European Air War and focuses on the air war over the period of time from 1943 to 1945. There will be the possibility to fly on the most famous WWII fighters and in particular on famous planes piloted by aces with the insignia of the era. ----- Notes on European Air War: European Air War (EAW) was released on October 31, 1998 published by Hasbro, under the developers name, MicroProse. It was a marvel, with 20 Flyable planes and a possible 256 planes in the air at one time, out beating any other WWII Combat Sims of the time and afterwards. At twelve months old it was considered a classic but still full price on the store shelves. Given that it's had a few budget re-release's; on July 24, 2000 by Hasbro “Classic Series” and on June 8, 2001 by Infogrames, then again in 2002 by Atari. It's a must have if you're even vaguely interested in WWII combat flight simulators, or think you might like to try
You have chosen to use the 1.28C version of the game because it allows the animations in the Hangar as the original game, and in addition in this version have been included excellent updates. Here are some EAW 1.28C features (built by the EAW community)
FLYING ONLINE: New hosting options and additional aircraft for up to 16 players. A ‘quick flight’ routine speeds gameplay.
NEW THROTTLE CONTROLS: Engine starts now require throttle management for more realistic flying. No gas, no start. Too much throttle and an explosive “wet start” of flame appears. Engine may be damaged by repeated wet starts or jamming the throttle forward too fast on a cold engine.
BUILT-IN GRAPHICS SPEED CHECKER: Use CTRL+G. An information screen appears upper right with Frames-Per-Second displayed, along with other aircraft info.
SPECIAL NAMES FOR EXES: You may copy the eaw.exe and rename the file to your unique preference or use one with a different name, such as EAW 1_28c.exe, Eaw-SPAW.exe, Iraq.exe, etc. It works in most Windows operating systems, but for online flying it must be named "eaw.exe". In Aces over Europe there are two exe files: aoe.exe (offline flight) and eaw.exe (multiplayer flight on GameRanger)
AUTO COMBAT: Default is ON. Change to “0” ( zero) to turn OFF. This allows you to fly on Autopilot and target enemy aircraft or other objects. The AI (Artificial Intelligence) will then fly your aircraft and pursue and shoot. Useful for both new and experienced pilots to watch an “expert” fight and observe and learn dogfight tactics. Autopilot and AutoClimb are already part of the 1.28 series.
WAR SHIPS, AND SEA CONVOY INTERDICTION TARGETS: A new type of convoy has been added for interdiction missions. Convoys composed mainly of warships can be selected for attack. If you choose either of the two "ship convoys" as target for an interdict mission, only targets that have a "ship convoy" are displayed on the preflight map.
2ND SUPERCHARGER STAGE: A 2nd supercharger stage added for piston engines with high altitude capabilities.
MORE ACTION CODES: A number of new ones have been added. Most are codes for additional damage types.
AIRCRAFT FORMATIONS: Every nation can have its own formation type. These are inside a “formations.dat” file in the main EAW directory.
BOMBER MISSIONS: The campaign routines have been adjusted to make "bomber campaigns" better, with more dependable escorts.
BURN DAMAGE: Multi- engined planes may lose a wing when a damaged engine burns too long. Tail gunners and AAA (ground fire) will not stop shooting when a plane engine just smokes.
FRONT LINES: Front Lines will be displayed on the single mission map by a red line.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (IA): AI´s will avoid hills rather well now. They cannot be led to crash into a mountainside so easily anymore.
WHAT 'S ACES OVER EUROPE?
It is a self-installing mod of EAW and is focused in the historical period 1943 - 1945 of the second world war. It was decided to use the famous 1943 - 1945 Emil Campaign of 2003 by inserting a new aircraft, the Lancaster MkIII. Airplanes have been updated to create "multiskin" squadrons and some errors have been corrected (for example ...the hangars).
The Emil campaign was for version 1.2 of the game, now it works with version 1.28 C of the game. To realize this "mod" the planes of 1940 were eliminated and they were replaced by the planes of the period 1943 - 1945 (as had done Emil). See the notes of the Emil Campaign.
Here are the planes you will find in the game (new planes in bold)
Almost all the airplanes have personalized signs (multiskin squadrons), so in flight you will notice aircraft with different numbers and often also with different camouflage (skin). In the game you will also find many aircraft of famous axes of the era. As an example below is the Spitfire XIVe. Each plane has its number.
This campaign is a complete remake of the original 1943-1945 EAW campaigns.
These are the official system requirements to correctly execute E.A.W. and consequently A.o.E.
