User Guide – Enemy Engaged: Comanche vs Hokum

Introduction

EECH box

Thanks to Arne Martin Güettler aka "Arneh" great work, you can use Tacview with any of the flights taking place in Enemy Engaged: RAH-66 Comanche vs. KA-52 Hokum.

In just few minutes, you can activate the flight recording: From a limited zone around you to the whole battlefield, you can decide which mount of data should be recorded and either preserve the element of surprise or display strait away each and every battlefield object.

Do not forget to download and install the EECH maps provided for free in the add-ons section to enjoy accurate debriefing regardless of the place your flight is taking place!

General Questions

Q: How to display the proper EECH terrain in Tacview?

A: To reduce the installer size, EECH terrains are not included within Tacview by default. You need to download the EECH maps from the add-ons section. Unpack the .zip file and copy the resulting .hgt files in \Tacview\Data\Terrain\EECH\ folder. Then, in Tacview, make sure that the terrain option is set to either Auto or EECH.

Q: Which versions of EECH are supported?

A: To record flights, you need the latest official version of EECH patched to the version 1.12+. You can find the latest community patch for EECH at EECH Central.

Q: Where can I find EECH?

A: You could buy it on GOG.com for a low price. Do not forget to patch it to the latest community version!
