"New Life for European Air War, MicroProse's long-lived
World War II Air Combat Flight Simulator / Arcade Style Game"

My site and file archive are designed for newcomers and old-timers alike. To help them technically by getting their EAW PC game up and running. To improve and maintain their interest in the game by providing shared resources and help. By cutting down on the amount of work and research one has to do, not only to play it, but to customize it as well.


A Little history:
I started a EAW file archive back in 1999 to 2002 as a personal project. Then I drifted away from EAW after that. 12 years later when I was using Windows 7, I decided to see if EAW would run on it, the answer to that is yes it does.

Since sometime in May of 2015 I have been building a larger file archive than I previously had. Then I started working on the Help Documents for my site. I decided eventually to combine all these sources of the work I have done (and others) and post them online in a newly organize structured file and site system ever since.

The many Help Docs have had a tremendous amount of work done to each of them, such as many repeated updates over the months and years, and it continues today. However, I'm always learning, I'm not an expert for all things Windows or EAW so please help me too. I just try to do my best to provide you the information on what works properly for me.

 Please see my 'Links Help Document' for other active web sources to help in your use of EAW.

This site and archive is dedicated to my friend; my Dad, who influenced me in aviation in the first place, who I love and enjoyed playing simulations with. Thanks Dad! (That one "got to me" he said). He also said back in circa 2016 about my help site, "It just goes on and on" :)

Also in dedication to the World Wide Community of European Air War (EAW) fans, who have kept improving this WWII Air Combat Simulator even without having the games source code (at the time) and even after learning that 'market pressure forced the original developers to reluctantly move on to other projects'.
