Computer EastFront

Watermarked PDF

Computer EastFront is a faithful simulation of the EastFront (1st edtion) boardgame enjoyed by thousands of wargamers all around the world. It is designed to be played solitare or two-player via LAN, modem, or electronic mail. There is no computer opponent (AI).

Computer EastFront tracks headquarters, movement, terrain, production and all other elements of the boardgame so you can concentrate on strategy. Combat is quickly and easily resolved.

With Computer EastFront you can:

  • Play head-to-head directly, or by modem.
  • Email games with friends worldwide.
  • Solitaire opening moves or entire games for fun, or to devise new boardgame strategies.

Computer EastFront runs on almost all versions of Microsoft Windows (from Windows 95 to Windows 8).

NOTE: We have recently updated the installer for Computer EastFront so that it installs on newer computers. The new installer is 32 bit while the old one was 16 bit. 32 bit software installs and runs on 64 bit machines but 16 bit software will not.

It installs on current version of windows 10 64bit, but it does not run. Direct play is active by default, evening running in compatibility mode, but keep getting a fatal error eastfront (920)(0).

Any solutions ?

I know that, normally, to play Computer East Front on Windows 10, you turn on the DirectPlay feature in Windows. However, I'm trying to get Computer East Front to run on a Windows 10 computer where DirectPlay is not on, and I don't have administrative privileges to turn it on. Is there a way to run Computer East Front on a Windows 10 computer if you can't turn on the DirectPlay feature? Is there some other way to get the program to run on Windows 10? Thanks!

Guys, somewhat unrelated thing (probably), but I try to run old Flight Commander 2 and it won't run on 64-bit Windows. Any hints or pages that would explain how to circumnavigate that?

you need to run it in win3.1 - you can find prebuilt virtual win3.1 within Dosbox packages online if you search for dosbox windows 3.1

alternatively you can get programs like OTVDM which will allow you to run 16bit programs in windows

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
