Re: Keycard for Mechwarrior 2

I'm pretty sure I've got the Mac version of that as well with all my Mac stuff. It looks pretty much the same except I think there is a picture of a Timberwolf on the front before unfolding or it's a booklet (I can't recall. I'm just sure about the Timberwolf). If I got out my scanner where would yo...

Re: New to MECHVM, having trouble with Mercenaries campaign

DO NOT DEMOTE YOUR ONLY ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT!!! Instead, create a new user account for admin purposes. Make it an admin account. Then create a second admin account as a backup. Only then do you demote your current account. You will have to enter the credentials for an admin account then when you w...

Re: New to MECHVM, having trouble with Mercenaries campaign

I am running Mercenaries in MechVM, on a Windows 7 (Service pack 1) machine from 2014. After figuring out some bugs, I am still having trouble...but here is what I came across- On first install, the game wouldn't play correctly unless I did "run as administrator" (I don't know why my computer doesn...

Re: Broken stock configs

MechVM counts the number of Jump Jet criticals, calculates Jump Jet weight based on that number, and any Jump Jet critical may be removed. MechVM MechLab identifies a number of defects and shows messages accordingly, so hopefully, this won't be a problem. I changed a lot of configs already, I've lo...

Re: Broken stock configs

Even if you remove all the jump jets from the Jenner, one remains. I know I missed one more 'mech that has extra parts when you remove all the equipment, but I couldn't find it when I went through. I must have skipped one. I thought it was a heavy or assault, since I recall running out of criticals ...

Re: Broken stock configs

Just checked a few 'mechs Jenner primary AND Alt config A and B. Extra jump jet in the left torso Mad Dog Alt Config B: Extra SRM4 in the right arm. I could have sworn there was another one with an extraneous weapon critical that did not show up in the "battle" portion of the game, but I could no fi...

Re: PROX's Box Full of Mechs

I tried grouping 4 gauss rifles with a Dire Wolf and I could barely kill a single wave of mechs in Instant Action. If someone made gauss rifles good, that would be amazing. This was my problem with autocanons. I'm not sure what you guys mean by "lag", it sounds like something to do with multiplayer...

Re: PROX's Box Full of Mechs

Question, was there a bug fix or something for autocannons? I ask because I found them to be nearly useless in the game, taking far more shots than they should to destroy anything, and thus running out of ammo really fast. Gauss rifles were just as bad. Hence my question, what would be the point in ...

Re: Mechwarrior 2 Mouse Issues

Are you aware that in MW2, the mouse controls torso twist, actually turning the 'mech is done with the arrow keys. Also, do you have "auto-center torso" set to on? That will make the 'mech automatically bring the torso back to the center position after you turn it. It is intended for joysticks, but ...

Re: Mechwarrior 2 "oh dang!" Moments

I wouldn't say that this was the first Sandbox. Mattel did a game called "Auto Racing" in the late 1970's that had five courses for you to race on. Except that it was one big map and the courses were all laid out right next to each other, it was possible to drive off one track and find any of the ot...
