I've been flying EAW for a few months but these great new addons are new to me so please bear with me.
I have installed the new terrain and the EAW Stab 1.1. I'm going to install ECA 1.4, ECA Control panel 2.0, ECA online 1.21 and either ECA Enabler or EAWCM 1.21.
Is there a certain order I should install them in? Should I use ECA Enabler or the EAWCM 1.21?

TEFjr...The order you have them listed should work fine. I don't use the enablers so can't comment. JWC has an excellent post thats a few days old(search the posts from the last several days) that explains the add-ons from a quick reference POV. Enjoy

TEFjr, I'm currently running two installations of EAW, one with all kinds of modifications and the other with Enabler for online play (or at least that was how I intended to use it ). Why did I choose Enabler? Well, because at the time there was a neat tutorial page on how to install it that it made it really simple! Now there is also a similar page for eawcm!

Anyhow, if you have ECA 1.4/CP 2.0 as well as ECAO, then the choice is between Enabler and eawcm. Since I didn't install eawcm, I'm afraid I can't answer that (hopefully somebody who has will post here). As far as Enabler goes, you should check this site (and probably do what I did: save it for future reference!)----------------How To Install Enabler. It should tell you everything you need to know about installing the Enabler and what order everything should go where. (to start with, install Enabler first!) P.S. I think the version of Enabler shown in the tutorial is an earlier version that was designed to allow you to employ a third variant of EAW (called EAW Rip). I'm not sure if this is the case or not, either way I only installed ECA/CP and ECAO and it works fine for me.

Many add-ons say to start with a fresh installation of EAW. Since this entails uninstalling EAW, a problem is created if you have offline careers or saved Single Missions that you'd like to keep. If this is the case, you can save these rather easily. All career files and saved Single Missions are stored in the "Savedata" folder in the EAW folder on your hard drive. All you have to do is drag them or copy them all to another folder (not in "Microprose Software"). This preserves them. After the fresh install of EAW, simply move or copy the files into the "Savedata" folder in your new install of EAW.
