Re: Norton Anti-Virus Issues

I haven't used Norton in over ten years since Comcast stopped providing a complimentary subscription (they switched to McAfee). However, there used to be a way to send false positives to Symantec for analysis. There were two ways to do it, one in the program and another on the web. This information ...

Re: Keycard for Mechwarrior 2

If they are that hard to find and rare, should I dig out the box with all the Mac manuals and try to scan the Mac version of the MW2 reference card?
It's a bit of effort to do so, mostly because the stuff is all packed up (including the scanner) and a pain to get out, but doable.

Re: Mission: Babysit. Bugged?

The bug seems to still be there in the Titanium version.
I just had the same problem.
So they didn't even bother to patch it.

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...
