A new Public Beta is now available to download. If you have registered your copy of Eagle Day to Bombing the Reich, you can download the latest beta update from the Members Area.
Performance note - As operating systems have evolved, many people have reported a significant drop in performance and some other DirectX related problems while playing Gary Grigsby's Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich in fullscreen mode. To help address some of these issues, this update will automatically be installed in Windows 7 compatibility mode.
To further increase performance, either play the game with the "windowed mode" option on, or use a 3rd party full screen emulator like DXWnd. This is the best workaround if you want to tab in and out of the game in full screen mode. You must first remove all compatibility settings to run the game in DXWnd. To do this you should run DXWnd in "expert mode" and "clear the compatibility flags" from the "Tools" menu.
