ONLINE PLAY

Just a few places to play EAW online. The game uses Direct Play 6.

DIRECT DRAW (DIRECTX) WRAPPERS FOR DIRECT3D

These programs correct colors within the menu screens of EAW. They also allow you to avoid the 7217 graphical error message and other problems. For Win2000 to WinVista, possible use in Win7.

  • D3DWindower 1.88 - Pass through type (designed for XP but works with Vista,7,8)
  • DDWrapper - very small "program" - Pass through type
  • DxWnd - (I couldn't get this to work in Win7 properly with EAW)
  • DXWrapper - (Not sure it even works with EAW)
  • nGlide - for 3Dfx Glide video mode (translates back to D3D, restores Horizon Fog.)


DIRECT DRAW REGISTRY FIXES (No wrapper required)

If you only need to correct the messed up colored menu screens, these programs will help without having to use a Wrapper program. For WinVista and Win7 use.


LINUX SETUP

This web page is done up to help you play EAW on Linux.


DOS EMULATOR

Run community made DOS tools in Win2000,WinXP,VISTA,Win7/8.1/10.


JOYSTICK / DEVICE COMBINERS

These programs / drivers allow you to combine more than one controller into one Device ID, by way of a virtual device. Useful for EAW v1.0-v1.2, FXEXE and when the source code modifications don't cooperate with your devices.
Of course these programs do a lot more on top of just combining your controls.


COMPATIBLE GAMES

Some Elements of these Games are Compatible with EAW, primarily some of the 3DZ models and 'skins'. (EAW was built off of the 1942 PAW code.)


REVIEWS

These are (1998-1999) EAW game reviews.
