Tamien, do you have the trilogy, or just mercs? Because the 3 in 1 set has some greater compatibility functions, I can get mine to work just fine on Win 7 64 bit.

Some time ago i just got MechVM aswell and tested it.
the thing is, i could play MW2 and GBL on my vista-64 ultimate, but i had to use my XP home laptopt to get MW2merc running (windows version).
Even so it crashed sometimes, so i made sure to save after each mission ^^

damn. MW2 was my first contact with Battletech and i played it day in day out untill the next addon/game came out and after that MW3 until...

I'm running Mercs Titanium Edition. It was a standalone box.

Ok... huh... I know they work. I'll talk to the guy who knows all this stuff the next time I go to the office. Will post what I find here later for you. I know it works, I don't know how.

Titanium edition has no nostalgia for me, what's the point? :-\
:'(


Don't worry Matty I love your sweet voice...*waits for leslie to kill him* 8)


but seriously, how do I legally obtain the titanium edition, I never bought that I had...have...the originals...but they does not work :'( and I want to play the greatness of MW2, GBL, and mercs, and even the evil of MW3 again

Legally, your guess is as good as mine. We don't make it. Not many copies are out, and they are overpriced, and most importantly. I don't see a dime for it.  Now, legally could never suggest that you would download a copy to just play it which of course would be terrible. So I won't.

It works, its just that Catapult that Unther pilots keeps warping in front of me. I'm sure if I get past those missions I'd be fine. Now to get the controls to be easier to edit would be nice.

*sigh* the best Manual I ever had, and STILL HAVE, is the one from Mechcommander.

It's got an honorary spot on my Desk!

(everyone who enters my room for the first time asks why my whole desk is cluttered with stuff, except for those 10 x 10 cm  XD)

I love the irony in this  ;D

Sorry just a little 'RP' jab there =)

Meanwhile I'm going to see how well that works on my Mercs TE.

What Irony?  It's all truth... NOTHING enters that sacred Area, and lives to tell the tale.  :o

Alright, I definitly do not understand that at all ;)

I find Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries and GBL work fine with MechVM's DOSBOX mode on Windows 7. I haven't tried patching them though, and I know 1.1 definitely doesn't work for Mercenaries unless you can find a Win95 version.

I also have a copy of Win95 Mechwarrior 2 31st CC, and it installs natively, but only in XP. I haven't tried XP mode though.

Of course! What Jaguar could kill his own trothkin!



Also does anyone know why my titanium edition will install under win 95 compatabilityand will get to the menu screen no issue but when I finally click play it is forever stuck on a black screen that will not load the intro video/any other portion of the game...I always have to control alt delete out of there :(  I worked for three hours trying to get it to work...I is frustrated.
