MechWarrior 2 DEMO

Post by Sir MMPD Radick » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:34 pm

Since I know many of you have never seen the demo I think it is time to post it up.
The Demo is only one mission, but it is pretty fun none the less in my opinion.

It has been modifed to work XP/2000.
Vista users will have to use dosbox.

I should mention also that the Multiplayer in this is broken, it requires netbios and so far I have not been able to coax dosbox to cooperate.

Damn, I recall setting that up on my office LAN way back in the day. It was definitely BUGGY and not ready for prime. Since we had to wait a year to download a working version of NetMECH from Activision, it was still worth toying with. However, I would recommend against spending your time on this version. It's more of a proof of concept than anything else and just allows you to walk around on one of the maps. It is not PLAYABLE in the sense of the word PLAY. Oh, and I recall it crashing A LOT too.

Just found a second version of the demo here:

http://www.localditch.com/mechwarrior/mech2/clans.html

It includes an Adder/Puma, which was never seen again in any later version of the game ... I'd like to know if we can port that mech to NetMech ...

if the demo works that means you are able to run mechwarrior 2 but you will need patches to make the games start
