  1. Hi Muddobber, Right, you need to install two microsoft patches, CFS3 Update 3.1 & 3.1a. These can be found at the MS CFS3 support site http://www.microsoft.com/games/combatfs3/downloads.aspx#update3.2. Install 3.1 first. Run the game and fly an aircarft. Close it down. Install 3.1a and then again run the game. This is the minimum you need to install any of the add-ons. The most important thing the updates do is to allow the sim to fly 4 engined aircraft which the original never did. Do install ETO as it completey upgrades the original theatre of operation beyond belief. But do take your time and allot a nice chunk of time for the install as it's big. To get the full v1.4 there are 3 (I think) seperate installs: v1.0, 1.2 and 1.4...oh and a small 1.4 hotfix. Get ETO here: http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?autocom=downloads&showcat=10 . It sounds a bit complicated but boy is it worth it. Top tip - follow the read me careful and post questions on SOH if you're not certain. Don't forget that all this work was done by a skilled bunch of amateur enthusiasts purely for the benefit of the CFS3 commnity.
  2. Hi Jochem, I'm pleased that you are enjoying ETO. The team put in a great deal of work to get this to you. I am sorry to hear that you had such difficulty in the installation. But now that it is up and running you should get hours of enjoyment from it. Beau
  3. Hi Doc, Yes the zapper should be in the main ETO folder and as far as I remember when run and it completes, the dialog box disappears.
  4. Not as far as I know. When ETO imports it over it integrates the MB into ETO so it can pick up the right maps, spash screens etc. If it can be done then some one else will have to chip in.
  5. Yes you do then it will be imported into ETO when you install ETO
  6. Yes if you do not it off ETO will not work correctly. Go to control panel and select User Accounts. there you will see at the bottom the option to turn User Account Control on or off, and once turned off you will have to re-start your PC. You will get nagged about this by Vista. Also the Window Security Centre icon in the system tray will show an Alert. I hope this helps Jeff
  7. The scuttlebutt has it that we're looking for an end of the Month release, but don't quote me on that. In the meantime, I've uploaded the latest aircraft screenies onto the site.
  8. 46_trap put up a post of how to excludes the zapper from Norton 360 as this is a common question I made pinned it, I think it'd be a good idea if those using different viruscans could add their own methods to it and then we could make it a more general zapper exclusion thread. What'cha think?
  9. Excellent I'll make this a sticky as this issue keeps on coming up.
  10. Check the site for news on the upcoming ETO 1.3 update!
  11. You're going to have to dig into Norton to find out how to exclude any files you don't want zapped. I don't use it so I can't help you there.
  12. I'm not quite sure what you were expecting mate. SOH is a forum not a website, a place where folk can discuss issues, make announcements etc. The website is the place to go for latest news and to introduce complete newbies to ETO/PTO.
  13. Hello Old Chap. The answer is yes and yes. The ETO Groundhogs are in a frenzy of finishing up the 1.3 update. Grizz had had an hard task of reining in those creative types who keep wanting to add more airbases, aircraft, effects etc. as the deadline's been put back a couple of times. The definate release date will be Jan 2010. Because of this work effort this forum's only being used to trouble shoot current ETO problems users have. There's a lot goodies to look forward to I can say (I'm especially excited about the Mossie developments). There should be some 'press releases' giving details in a while. Glad you've stopped by mate. Always glad to hear from you.
  14. Looky here at a slide show of some screenis from some of the Hurricane IV missions I've uploaded to the ftp for testing.
