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...

Re: Mercs Windows 1.2 Patch Project

Shots from weapons phasing through target when fired in rapid succession, making weapons with quick fire times close to useles (e.g. Pulse Lasers, Ultra Autocannons) One work-around here could be to slow down the RoF for weapons. Small Pulse Lasers having no hit detection due to bug in weapon's eff...

Re: MW2 hitbox issues (RAVE Enhanced Macintosh)

I don't have a clue about your problem. MW2 came bundled with my PowerMac 6500/300 back in 1997. IIRC I have the RAVE version, though I thought it was the RAGE version (if that is a different version, sorry). I never encountered anything like what you describe. What I can say is that for screenshots...

Did they mispronounce Bannockburn in the game?

I'm curious, did the VA for the Bitching Betty mispronounce Bannockburn in the game during the mission "Mirror Cage" ? I recently had a job interview with Walgreens at their Bannockburn, IL office. There, on the phone I mentioned the name of the town, only to be told that it's pronounced "BAN-OCK-BU...

Re: Difficulty Settings

Yes, there were. On harder difficulties, your shots do less damage while enemies do more damage. This is most noticeable when you are trying to destroy those super-tough dropships, especially in the mission "Sable Flame" when doing it in the time limit is difficult, or in the mission "Plum Wine" whe...

Re: Age Poll

I forgot about this poll. I just moved up an age bracket by turning 40 last month, so my account somehow getting lost seems like a good thing since I otherwise could not have changed my vote.

Re: Mercenaries for Mac: Easy and Nightmare

Funny, every time I look at this topic I think I missed a Mac version back in the day. AFAIK only the first MW2 game was released for Mac, the one that was bundled with my PowerMac 6500/300 and introduced me to 'mechs and Battletech.
I kept waiting for GBL or 'mercs to come out, but it never did.
