[...skins but don't know how to remove them. I'd like my regular Spit IX back.]
The way the add-on skins work is like this: when EAW needs to draw a skin for a specific aircraft, it searches the EAW folder on your hard drive for files with certain names. In the case of the Spitfire MkIX, these files will all be called "Psp09***.tpc". The "***" stands for things like "tex", "tes", "tra", "v", etc. If EAW finds any files with names such as those, it will use those files when drawing the in-game skin. If EAW does NOT find any files with those names, then EAW will use its default "Psp09" files (from a ".CDF" file) to draw the in-game Spitfire MkIX skin.
So your solution is easy: To remove the add-on skin and return to the game default, delete ALL the ".tpc" files that begin with "Psp09". i.e. the ones like "Psp09tex.tpc". This is easy with Windows Explorer---------just go to the "View" menu and choose to "Arrange by"--"Type". Now all the ".tpc" files will be together, and all the "Psp09" .tpc files will be grouped together alphabetically. Just delete them and you will restore the default skins.
[can I organize the files in my eaw folder into separate folders or will the program recognize them if I do this]
NO! You cannot do this. Any add-on file MUST be located directly in the EAW folder in order for EAW to recognize it! Remember, EAW will search the EAW folder for specific file names. It cannot search a subfolder! If you put the add-on files in such a folder, the effect will be the same as not having any add-on files at all, since EAW will not find the appropriate filename when it searches the EAW folder. The only exceptions to this will be when using some of the batch file converter programs, like "EAW Stab" or "Scorpion's Enabler" (Stab is the Automatic Terrain Manager for EAW and the Enabler is one of the converters that lets you switch between "regular" EAW, ECA, ECAO, etc. all in only one installation of EAW). With programs such as these, however, you should just follow the instructions that come with them. For all other add-ons, you must not put them into a subfolder.
