Hi all,

I just uploaded a new version of MechVM. Highlights are:
  • SMK video+audio playback thanks to http://libsmacker.sourceforge.net/
  • MechVM shows cutscenes and hints
  • Fixed a bug that may cause installations to fail if another edition of MW2 was installed before without restarting MechVM
  • DosBox update
  • NetMech Plugin repaired
  • Summoner now imported
  • Mercs: missions selected by date, contracts can be selected
Download MechVM

Enjoy!

When I install Mechwarrior 2 31st Century Combat my mouse does not work properly at all. When I move my mouse left the mechs torso will move left but then begins moving right, left, right, left, etc. When I move my mouse right the mechs torso will move right but then begins moving left, right, left, right, etc. It's like the torso does not know where to move. Moving up or down isn't as bad. But when I move the torso down for example the torso will move most of the way down but then shift up. I don't have this issue with MW2 Mercs or Ghost Bear's Legacy. Is there something I need to change for mouse controls to work properly?

The errors MechVM tells me after I install the game...

no joystick found
could not find F: \german.lrm
BET1MAP1.BWD not found - connot build texture table.

I don't know how but I tried installing the game again and this time without any mouse issues!

Can you tell me how to change the game to fit the screen? The game plays in a 1078x768 window with everything else black. I have also tried following these instructions for widescreen but it doesn't work either. https://www.reddit.com/r/mechwarrior/co ... mod_msdos/

I have tried changing my display from 4k to 1280x768 and it still plays in a window.
