Re: MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries 3D Enhanced Edition

Nice screenshots. Actually I meant that the 3dfx version of Mercs, if I understand correctly, is somewhat rare. Maybe that one is too, I don't know really the relative numbers of each version. I don't think the 3dfx and D3D versions are the same. As I mentioned in IRC, Venom posted some screenshots ...

Re: New Class for netmech games?

We had been discussing dodgeball on IRC, and this came to mind. The origin is someone came by on Kali several years ago and wanted to play a game like this (gauss rifles + minimum armor), called differently. It was kinda fun but I recall only playing it a few times at most. Edit: And it would be coo...

Re: Mechwarrior 2 "oh dang!" Moments

The biggest for me is that "too easy" pirate-hunting mission on the Periphery in Mercs. I knew something like that was coming but I actually didn't expect it that mission.

Re: Mercenaries crashes on campaign start

This time, I actually got everything mounted correctly, I think, and ran mercs.exe. Did you install first or are you trying to run off the mounted CD? You need to install if you didn't. Regarding the green crash text, how much RAM do you have available? Not sure if that's it though. I get the green...

Re: First Mate

Some still play, but it goes up and down over time in numbers and frequency. We're in something of a trough lately. Lag shooting still exists but it is much less, typically. Weapon travel time will always exist in MW2 though (bolt-style lasers, etc.), so a varying degree of leading is necessary, and...

Re: MW4 For Free... Finally

Think of it as preloaded content that awaits activation. You just have to wait a bit longer. If you read over at Mektek, they're planning to release a patch to activate it soon. I think the fourth mekpak might be interesting too, though the free version ships with 3.1. It depends if the new features...

No need to apologize; it's still interesting information to me at least.
