Files Modified During MechVM Installs

Greetings, new (old) Mechwarrior here,

I recently installed MW2:31st and MW2:Mercs with MechVM, and was curious what/if game files, like MW2.PRJ, are modified during the installation. I'd like to get my DOS versions patched to 1.1 and 1.06, respectively, but want to make sure I don't goof up or can at least restore anything that MechVM has done to improve or stabilize the game. E.g., I see that Skyfaller's FarView patch is in the Mercs installation directory. Has that been applied by MechVM? I also saw that there were a number of mech configuration improvements loaded in. When upgrading Mercs to 1.05, it mentions all mech customizations will be reset to their defaults. Does this include updated mechs from MechVM?

Thanks for taking the time and having the passion to update and continue working on MechVM. I can't tell you how excited I was when I stumbled across this site looking up information on MW5:Mercs. The MW2 games are still great, and I'm excited to play again.


EDIT: Noted that upgrading Mercs to 1.05 will remove mech customizations.
