What is Codename Eagle?
Codename Eagle is an open-world multiplayer first person shooter with drivable land, air and sea vehicles. A precursor to the Battlefield series, it was originally released in 1999 by Refraction Games, a studio that was purchased by DICE shortly after Codename Eagle's release. Battlefield: 1942 was then developed using an updated version of Codename Eagle's Refractor engine, Refractor 2.
The original Refractor engine was much more arcade-style in terms of its physics, which gave Codename Eagle its signature elements such as "wing walking" while flying bomber planes and other goofy antics. This made for an extremely entertaining multiplayer experience that was as much funny as it was fun - an experience that was never replicated to this day. The Battlefield series took things in a quasi-realistic direction, moving away from the pure arcade-style silliness. Thus, Codename Eagle multiplayer remains a unique and top-tier multiplayer experience - even today.

Q: How do I make Codename Eagle work with Windows 10?
A: For some, it will work without issue. If you are experiencing a black screen or the error "InitD3D failed", or other graphical issues, these can be resolved by adding the dgVoodoo directx DLL's to your CE installation folder. These files will emulate older versions of directX and let you run games such as CE on modern operating systems. You can get them from here. If you have any issues with setting this up, feel free to reach out on Discord!
Q: Does Codename Eagle work on Linux?
A: Yes! The game runs just fine using Wine on both Linux and Mac OSX. Be sure to use a 32-bit WINEPREFIX and enable the settings checkbox for "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows".
