Re: MW2 Mercs Titanium weapon glitch/music

Confirmed, the Titanium Trilogy (TT) soundtracks were shortened to make space for additional data on the CDs. Virtual CD stores CD images separately from the data on a CD. It may be possible to exchange the music using that program. I don't know VirtualCD's current price. A cheaper alternative would...

Re: A question regarding the GBL intro

Agreed, a mech is easily hot enough to melt into snow. The Kodiak stock configuration does not have jump jets, but jump jets can give a Kodiak up to 120 m of jump range. At that distance, you do not even have to cover it with snow to hide it, a deep hole should do. And you need some sensors, like se...

Re: Install from CD Image not working

Installing from a CD image is supported for the DOS editions of MW2. If your CD imager creates several files, just feed the largest file to MechVM. After installation, the line below the buttons says "installation complete". If the image file is not supported, this will be reported in the same line.

Re: Compiling MechVM on Linux

I am currently working on a new release, so I'd rather provide fixes for this 14 months old release only when necessary. I want to improve Unicode support for Windows, but this breaks a lot of existing functionality. MechVM can be made to work under Linux, but functionality is reduced. Under Linux, ...

Re: Adjusting screen for mechwarrior 2

May I suggest you use a physical camera to take the screenshot? It would help everyone document the issue.

Re: Adjusting screen for mechwarrior 2

I may have seen this error before, but it was possible to fix it by task switching. If that doesn't work, MechVM shell may help. It tries to emulate the 2D parts of MW2, aside from the sim itself. MechVM shell does not have music, sound or animations, but can be used to launch the sim, and it displa...

Re: Adjusting screen for mechwarrior 2

Try task-switching between the game and some other application.
