Re: reactor - online, sensors - online...

Yeah, I'm going to have to do that. I've read about those errors and they are DOS' debug exceptions, which happen to be popular and quite unsolvable in some cases of WinXP. Luckily I should have my Win98SE somewhere around - if not, I hope FreeDos or OpenDos will be able to run MECH in VMware. Thank...

Re: Default Key Map

Does anybody know how to put spacebar into one of the GAMEKEY.MAP values?

For example, I'm trying:

Code: Select all

FEET_TO_TORSO    Space               
But no success

Re: reactor - online, sensors - online...

With regards to mercs since you are on XP instead of Vista or Windows 7 you can play the DOS version directly on the OS as long as you're not running the 64bit version of XP. Do you mean I should be able to run the DOS version straight from Windows XP shell? If I do this, I get an error: DOS/4GW er...

Re: Inverted Mouse

Can this be done in Mercenaries?
I've changed these values in both Input.Map and Mouse.Map and I still don't have a proper mouselook.

Hello Mechwarriors , My first post here is both introductory and a request. I've been a fan of the entire BattleTech world since I saw MW2 demo (migth've been called shareware back then) some 15 years ago (and spent days on it), but I never really had the full version. I've played Mechwarrior 3, Me...
