Hello Everyone,

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.

0.908e Beta change log
    Changes

      1.Overhauled Production System User Interface. Added priority buttons and filters for aircraft type. Added "Weapon Database" menu bar to Production screen. Also changed how research works (See production system write-up in the "Manuals" folder.)
      2.Added "highlight airfields with units" button to Defender's reaction phase side menu.
      3.Reduced priority of multi-engine aircraft production.
      4.Changed the unit upgrade message to show the old AC type as well.
      5.Added minimum CH chances for increased damage CH and one-shot-kill CH.
      6.Added code to limit units to one strafe attack per mission.
      7.Added missions, sorties, fatigue and "days since last mission" columns to squadron information screens.
      8.Added a sort button for the units to sort by unit ID.
      9.Added ability to bring up "Unit Detail" screen by clicking squadron info button twice in "List Air Unit" and "Order of Battle" screens.
      10.Added filters for displaying unique aircraft types (fighter, fighter bomber, jets, etc.) on several info screens.
      11.Added historical pilots and leader names to RCAF and other units. Modified the P-61 endurance and allowed rockets to some Typhoon standard load outs (see details in "September 2017 OOB changes" document.)
      12.Modified aircraft graphics to be more proportionally realistic during Action Phase.
      13.Added roundels for RCAF, RAAF, and RNZAF aircraft.
      14.Modified over 70 map locations to more geographically accurate locations (i.e Bitburg, Munster, Rostock, etc.)
      15.Added Production and PBEM instruction PDF's

    Fixes
      1.Fixed replay crash and wrong aircraft graphic bug.
      2.Fixed wrong anthem playing for victorious nationality.
      3.Found a bug in the AI prod routine that may have caused too many new AC to be built when the old type was needed.
      4.Fixed a minor error in the loading of buttons.
      5.The "toggle on/off following units" button in Action Phase reversed to now read correctly.
      6.Fixed a few other minor issues that may have caused CTD's in the past.


You can also download the Beta patch directly from the Public link!

Happy Gaming!

Downloaded, setting 'windowed mode' finally solved my performance issues, scroll & click response are ok now.

About this point, noticed that "Unit Detail" button disappeared (double click is ok), is this intended?

edit: selecting "Show jets" in "Production" screen don't show night jet Me 262B (you need to go to "Show night" to see it).

Gratz for resurrecting my efforts, Warshipbuilder. The prod screens were many hours of grindy button placement and carry on. The 2009 refresh started as a community driven effort, it's fantastic to see the community thrives even after all these years.



I hope I didn't leave any time bombs in there.

I've been running the 43 campaign as axis during alpha testing and production seems to be working good at 45 days in, no surprises yet.

The new research parameters you developed need a good testing though.

That is WAD, since you don't need it anymore with the double click

Can you be more specific. Does the game not start at all? Does it freeze or lock up at a certain point? Do you start the game and it crashes to desktop? There are some people here with good technical know-how. If you provide a better description of your problem, there may be someone who could provide an answer.

Try un-checking the compatibility settings. You can do this by right-clicking the btr.exe and go to properties->compatability

A black screen and after while a message: "BTR.EXE ha smesso di funzionare ....."

GeForce GTX 960 Drivers 385.69
Intel Core i5-4460 CPU 3.20GHz
7,94 GB RAM
Screen: 1920 x 1080,60Hz

P.S.
I unistalled and installed again the beta patch on vanilla game: the 1.00 game works well (as did previous patch) but no luck with beta.
I quit and restart PC, Always the same black screen ....

Maybe you need to install official patch 1.02 and then the beta? (1.00 -> 1.02 -> beta 0.908e)
Followed this path, no issues at all

But the unanswered question is "how does that work?" Why is it numbered lower than the current version? Were any kind of mood altering substances involved in this numbering system? Is this that infamous "new math?"

It's my old numbering system. I built our beta versions with a 0.x code, then when it was ready for release it got a 1.0x code. I handed over 0.908(d?) which Warshipbuilder's team polished off. If they keep doing updates they'll be able to stick to a more rational numbering system.

I don't do drugs, it just made sense to me in 2008/09.

1. Try setting your screen to 1280x1024 or run the game through dxwnd following the instructions in the readme and fiddling with the settings.
2. Deleting the entire folder works as an uninstall.

Hope this helps.

I'm almost certain this is still a problem with the compatibility setting set in registry by the installer. I have moved this over to the tech support forum, but any help on this issue from "the old breed" is appreciated.

IDK if this is a bug or WAD, just asking:
Playing alied, I see the troops status completely. I tried attackning them, and damage and "autorecon" updates.

Interesting. We only expanded some array sizes and fixed some text field bugs in the displays which went a long way to help fix the replay bugs. We hoped that there would be some collateral bug squashing with these fixes, like the "turn back" bug...

So this is likely WAD, and you cant trust the older recon information as much as the new I imagine.
Looking again, what exactly are you seeing that is different from 1.02?

IIRC the exact ammount of damage, the number of artillery pieces destroyed and the numbers of troops killed wasn´t visible in 1.02.

I just checked 1.02 and it looks the same.
