Title: Old NetMech/Kali/PPP/Zone/MPlayer People?
Post by: ZulMech on August 30, 2008, 11:01:41 AM
Just curious if anyone here played Mechwarrior 2 competitively on mplayer. At least I believe it was mplayer, its been a lot of years.
I was a member of Clan Phoenix, name was ZulMech. It was my first online game and probably still my favorite. It was also my first introduction to lag, one could only actually aim at another mech if it was either running straight at you, away, or walking backwards. Otherwise, one would have to find the sweet spot which was usually around a second ahead of the other mech. So every shot would appear to be missing on both players screens, but yet would be tearing the mech up. Good times, took some skill, especially with the awesome jumpjet system of Mech 2, with 6 keys dedicated to them.

We had scheduled clan battles, official ranking systems, training sessions, everything. Every rank in the clan corresponded with a mech weight, so for example, lower ranking members could only drive the corresponding light mechs. When a higher rank opened in the guild, two lower ranks would fight it out for the next rank, the first to 5 kills won.

Good players were known and respected within all the clans. Anyway, those were my glory days of online gaming, just thought I'd share and maybe find a few people who used to play there as well.

Some old names I remember: Clearlight, Universe, Luckshire, Schwin, Valor, Kitfox(RIP), Joboo

Yes! It was also my first online game. I went by Frantic (Still do  8)) I was in Clan Jade Falcon. I remember fighting against your clan all the time!

Sure do. Mw2 on Mplayer was my first introduction to organized clan matches.  I remember my first solo win against Mottdahoop from Clan Jade Wolf.  I was recruited in Silent Dragons by Sabrina, the best female player in the league.  It made such an impact in my gaming career, I helped expand the clan into other games ( all the mw games, counter-strike, wow, guild wars ) and remain semi-active today in Guild Wars. Its hard to believe that was a decade ago. The last few remain mechwarriors in the clan are really looking forward to MWLL so we can relive the glory days again.

SD was one the biggest clans on Mplayer so I'm hoping I'll bump into a few of my former clansmen here.

MPlayer!  Now that's a blast to the 14.4 modem past.  I hadn't discovered 'Mech back then.  Spent all my time playing the original Quake on MPlayer before I found out about QuakeSpy or QSpy or whatever the precursor to GameSpy was called back then.  What about MechCommander on MPlayer?  Any of ya'll do that?

Title: Anyone from Kali MW2 DOS Grand Council league?
Post by: Eladamri on September 25, 2008, 04:55:47 AM
Hey everyone,

I've had Crysis for a while, but I haven't played too much because I've been busy..howevever I became really excited when I heard about the potential for this game.  I was just hoping that there'd be some people who used to play in the Grand Council league off of Kali back in the day.  I also played mechwarrior3 and some 4, but I'm not quite sure what league it was.  I think some was in the NBT league.

I played mainly in Steel Viper back in the day..originally the Khan was Swampie, other leaders included Punkrasta, Steelfist, my neighbor Splicer...etc

Same league also had an active HH, JF, Orgasmatron from FM, Verdic from SR, Blondi in NC.

I also played in FWLM, with Marte, Cyberkut, some others..

Edit -  I was also in House Jurai for a while.

Anyhow, sorry if this is random for a lot of you who may have browsed this.  I'd really like to hear from any of you on these forums, (or anyone who knows the people I'm talking about).  I'll be looking for a group of some sorts when the time comes, thanks.

I'd love to hear from ya if you were around during that time period!

Wasn't playing Mechwarrior while I was on Kali, but I do recognise the names of those FWL guys. I haven't seen Marte in ages, but Cyberkut should still be in FWL in NBT-HC. Axen posted a thread for them in the recruiting section.

You should be able to find them through the Netbattletech HC unit listing. House Jurai is still up as well, and should have a website.

Lets see. I first began playing online Mech games on MPlayer long time ago with Mech2 i think it was. Then on GamingZone. That was when you had to learn to "Lead" your weapons, unlike the present LOL.
At that time I went by the name
[WM]Phoenix or- was it [WM]PhoenixFyre. Something like that.
And i do remember  "CyberWolf" and "Luger" from them days LOL.

Remember the good ole days running around against Blondi, Blackthorn..Verdic, Hydro95(still talk to him), IceViper, ColdViper, DarkViper, LightViper (lol).

I think that'd be a fun thing to do.  Why don't we chat this thread up , and start listing some clans off from netmech dos we all remember..and as many pilots associated with the unit as possible.  I think that'd be fun.

Hello all.

Looking for people from the past.
Any MH from Mechreg. Dragon, TTarget, Warbird, Balrog, Wookie, etc.
Any TGGx from various leagues.
Any WX or CBS from that defunct planetary stock only league that never happened (BTU).
Any old HRR's from the SL or NBT days.

For those who know me I am still in contact with Sledge and Slar, Nils and Taddz... Even though the fools now play WoW...

Post by: Deathwing on September 30, 2008, 01:59:17 PM
I was a Widowmaker on Mplayer back in the day. WM-Deathwing or WMxDeathwing is what I traveled under. Mottdahoop managed to drag me away to the Jade Wolves and than later I joined with the Terra Wolves. I even got a bloodname in a match against WM-Knight and WM-Justice and a third i can't remember.

I used to be pretty good at DFAs (Death From Above) I even got my pilot wings for it. Too bad later versions of Mechwarrior pretty much made it hard to get DFAs unless you just fell like a rock on top of them, instead of the smooth sideways slide with the jump jets with a one-hitter quitter to the cockpit. I used to have a lot of wireframe mode screenshots of red faced timber wolves.

WM-Justice was into Tribes also, I wonder if that is where he went.

I also remember being a member of the Planet War League (PWL) back than, with The Hell Clan (THC) always being on top or close to it.

MW2 was truly the only times I had fun playing Mechwarrior online.   

I think I still have a copy of that program "Mech Lab Maid" that helped in mech customization and snitched on the other player if they didn't follow the mech configuration rules that were agreed upon prior to launch.

Hey all,

I started playing MPBT on AOL way back in the day.  Then moved over to MPBT on GameStorm where Venom and I formed the GhostWalkers (for those of you that remember us, if any  ;D).  From there the GW stayed together through MW3, MPBT: 3025 beta, and of course MW4 and it's multiple add-ons.  The core of the GW is still gaming together through all these years, and we're really looking forward to Living Legends.

That was a looong time ago. I used to play in the ADL league, we had an all Alaskan Merc unit called the "StormWeavers". We would get together from all over the state and have occasional dinners and bullshit tactics while our wives looked at us like we were completely immature basement dwellers  :o

I really miss lag shooting also, you could take out an opponents leg long before he even found your "sweet spot". I remember a House Laio guy named "Raven" that spent almost an entire saturday with me when I was a raw noob, teaching me lag shooting and tactics in team battles.

One of our members moved down to the lower 48 and started his own Unit, at Arc-Royal.com (guess which unit?) I wonder what happened to those guys...

I started with Solaris VII on AOL as the RXO of the 22th Skye Rangers (i just found our site beeing still alive http://www.22sr.de/) lol that was so long ago and I still remember how damn bad the graphic was but we had a hell of fun. after solaris VII was shut down we switched over to mpbt 3025 which was actually quite decent with a great planetary capturing system and i loved the trebuchet you could play there. but it was shut down very quick because of some license stuff i think.. anybody knows if its still alive?

then i switched to MW and played some zone matches while experiencing roger wilco ^^ (i remember everyone was pikcing that thanatos... dont know why tbh when i look at MW nowadays) but it never was that much fun like the "old" games. so i sticked to the btc books (never touch DA! ^^) and builded up some table top army ... ok its more like a squadron or a lance or something  :P

seeing this mod now realy get me exciting and i love to see all this work put in to my favorite storys... keep going and praise the old days ^^

Is it not ironic that most of the posters on here are new to the forum? There has been a long and faithful following to this game. There was a review of Battletech (boardgame) in the 80's that said it would never become popular and it would certainly never have a cult following! Good to see so many of the faithful chiming in.

I wish that I had gotten deeper into the BT IP 12 years ago, after having seen the BT animated show. Wish that I had found the BT miniature game, MW pen and paper rpg, MW+MC pc games, much earlier then I did. I did not find the pc games until about 99 (when MW3 came out), and it was not until about 00-01 that I found first the MW pnp rpg, and then the BT miniature game.

On top of that my friends where not that interested in this IP, and by this time our gamer group had slowly started to play less and less already. So convincing them to try out this "random" thing I found was impossible. Never had a computer that could even handle MW2 until 2003. Which is really very laughable, since the requirements for MW2 are not that high. XD Not to mention that it was not until Dec 2002 that I got my hands on internet at home. :P

So I never got to feel the "glory days" of all of these things. I really feel like I missed out on a lot of fun times. Hopefully I might be able to instead join a new "golden age of BattleTech" with MWLL. :)

MW2 Mercs was really was a community thing. We had an all Alaskan unit "The StormWeavers", from many different towns (and villiages) we got together every sunday night and duked it out on ADL and FWL. Once in a while we would all gather in Anchorage to have dinner together. Calistarius, I think you would have enjoyed being part of BT from the beginning. I have.

Calistarius, I think you would have enjoyed being part of BT from the beginning. I have.
I can't more then agree 100%.

I really love/loved playing the tabletop's for the Warhammer games, (last game for me was probably around 5-6 years ago). Which are 2 of the best IP's ever created (together with IP's like BT, Fallout and Final Fantasy). We also played alot of normal PnP rpg's (we never liked D&D though, we prefered the Swedish PnP rpg's that we had... DoD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drakar_och_demoner) and EON (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eon_(role-playing_game)) ftw! :D), more so then tabletop's. So when I found the MW rpg I knew I wanted to play it. And then running into BT... I felt like I had struck gold. I was at Sweden's oldest rpg convention, Gothcon, when I ran into a German couple. They where going to GM MW and BT, and I instantly jumped on the chans. Unfortunatly that was my only encounter with getting to play both BT and MW. And I only own the 3rd ed rules for MW.

I can't say that I have ever liked the whole multiplayer thing, I still don't. But, if I had had the computer for it back then, there could have been "exeptions to the rule", MW totaly being one of them. I have actualy still not played anything at all with MW/MC in multiplayer though, mainly because of my extream dislike (read hate) of anything multiplayer and PvP. :P Very hard to get past 18 years of compleatly disliking anything that has to do with multiplayer or PvP. Luckaly, around about February this year I got into the WAR beta, and got to try it's RvR, which is so far the only PvP like thing I have ever liked. Which have soften me a little to the whole multiplayer and PvP thing... if it is the right IP. Which is why I am looking forward to one day play MWLL. :)

Sorry... this whole post is off topic really... *shuts up for now* :D

HJ no longer has a website. and no one still in HJ has the time or desire to create a new one.  In case anyone was curious at all, House Jurai does still exist, though only a mere shadow of its former glory.  Those that stay in contact are pretty jaded by now with all the other things out there to do.  A scant few members still play in NBT league, paired up with the old minnasota tribe.

I myself am skeptical of this mod, and wonder if its really worth the time to get into it, or if any old Jurai samurai would bother to come out of the shadows to play it either.    Now... if NBT were to convert to it, that would be a strong incentive.

This mod though, if its really so good, will really need to have some "serious" advertising of global proportions. One can only stomach so much old stale bread.

I have been with NBT CDS since 1997, but have since fallen out of playing battles with them in NBT HC. There are alot of oldies kicking around in here.

And welcome to the boards.

Some of the original CDS are still functioning under NBT-HC Tinman Oshika, and Tman Sennet.

That brings back some old thoughts,

Played MC and MC2 in SL and TCL on Mpig and ran the Nova Cats for quite a few years. When Mpig died we went to Zone but that kinda sucked compared to Mpig with mics and all.

Then switched to MW4 cuz I still needed my mech fix. Only unit I ever played in was WoB for a year or 2 and I can't remember what league it was for.

I still keep in touch with quite a few guys from MC and MC2 and now I'm trying to get back in contact with as many as I can.

Watch your asses folks, gonna try and get us oldtimers outta our walkers and teach you young-uns how to shoot. And if I drop my teeth..... well screw you.

Played MC and MC2 on old gaming zone as SV_Loonatic and DC_Nagumo.  It worked fairly well at the time, surprisingly.  Pretty clean interface with not too many ads and connection failures were rare.  Considering it was a Microgreed application, I was pleasantly surprised.  Had a lot of fun with it. :)

I started out in the GC with clan Jade Falcon then gradually transitioned over into the TKZ with the Templars.  Looking at a lot of old familiar names here.  I just heard about this project tonight, can't wait to get back in the saddle again!

Forgot to add (sorry for the double post) I was listed as Apostle in the GC, and WildFire in the Templars and further on.  Cool to see the SRM here and HJ also represented.  Seeing a bunch of nicks here that are bringing back a FLOOD of memories.  Man, SRM was awesome... toughest group of guys I ever went up against.

I played MW2 on netmech (but not in any clan) with my trusty old 33.6k Modem, Pentium 166 and VoodooII graphics card.  I went off doing other things in life for MW3 and went hard core with MW4 in Clan Ghost Bear which was mainly Aussies but adopted a few guys from the US, Canada, UK etc.  Fun time.

Yep I use to play on Mplay as Both GB-Ack-Ack and KV-SirLancealot

Yah, I was in GB too. My name was Napoleon. I remember you. Do you remember Skystalker? And his wife Babs or something like that. He was a good guy. Later on I changed my name to Glamdring and ended up starting my own clan called STR/Steel Talon Republic. We were in the NSL (New Star League). The Sakhan was a guy named DarkHelmet who I used to live right next to. Man this crap takes me back. I am ashamed to admit that for a while (before I changed it to Glamdring) I went by the name "SolarWind" lol. It sounded cool at the time. *sigh*...... sooooo gay....

Played MW2 on Mipg, Kali & HEAT. I was in HR, DR, WM etc.. as Mao, Spartacuss, Feelgood.... etc... hehe. Luckshire is now my wife. We actually met playing MW2...lol. Good to see old faces.

Peace

Mao



I'm pretty sure I remember the name Feelgood. I only played on Mpig, so that is where I would have known you from. You might remember me as STR-Glamdring. I know I did a lot of wars with HR, DR, and WM guys. DJC was always a big clan too, but I have not seen any of them chiming in yet.

I have been playing Mechwarrior games online for about 13 years or so.  I played MW2, Netmech, MW2 Mercs, MW3, MW4V, MW4BK and MW4 Mercs...and am currently still playing MW4 Mercs (Hardcore) in the Netbattletech (NBT-HC) league.

There are still hardcore guys that love MW Mercs playing that game since it's the BEST we got still, till MWLL comes out.

I also ran the MNSL for a number of years, ending that in 2001.  Beta tested MW2 Mercs, MW4V and helped out with Mektek doing some of their mekpaks.  All in all quite a few years invested in this stuff.  :)

sites still worth visiting if u've never been there, for further info.

There were two Vorpal's - the CDS Vorpal and then there was Vorpal Bunny - who, interestingly enough, appeared one day after Disgruntled E Bunny on Easter.  ;)  If anyone remembers Disgruntled, I'll be really impressed!  If ya do, tell me what he offered everyone that day...

Vorpal Bunny though, later worked for CHH on the side.  Vorpal and Vorpal Bunny were definitely two different guys though.

Hey Landros... nope. I left back in Dec 2007 to work with Sony, Nintendo and Xbox.

I worked with Alienware when it all started. It was just 5 of us. When I left it was about 900 employees (even after the Dell adquisition). You can still see my product line on the web (I started / managed all of the laptops).

We are all still very close though, especially the old guard (original crew)... Funny you asked because I just finished playing poker with them and walked with $200 :)

Some of us may be getting together though again to launch something  new.. its under discussion.

I've been lurking on this site since its inception, and this thread compelled me to join.  ;)

I played almost entirely on Kali, MW2:Mercs, ADL Clan Ghost Bear ( ^GB>BlackKnight ).  Fun times - hard to find that kind of gaming experience again these days.  I remember some of the name listed here, like Mr Blastman, and Landros, and others that were in ADL.  Might not remember me, I never made too much noise in chat (not saying you guys did)  :P  I still have a horde of old Mercs/Kali related files on CD's.  Can't seem to ever let those go...   Oh and was in Killer's Wolf Pack Merc unit for a time too - can't recall the league at the moment...

Played some in MW4, when ADL attempted to get start.  Haven't really tried to play mech 4 Mercs that much, even though its always installed...

Looking forward to re-igniting some of the glory days with this mod.

Heya Blasty - yeah, too long.  I'm not sure where all of those people are now - its been a couple years since I've seen any of those names.  I had most of them on my ICQ list, but someone hacked into that and erased them all.  Had to start over, but I don't really use ICQ anymore - only more of a bragging right that I have a sub-1 million number  :)   And yeah, I still have that very same chat log you mention - someone named it AVSpringer, pretty much what it was at the time.  Jerry Springer on Kali...  too funny

I could probably dig up some of those old names and find them somewhere.  I think I actually saw Siberwolf online somewhere on some site, but I can't recall atm.  Here's an old pic of ADL's former admin for kicks:

LoL... too funny... I would not know what to tell you regarding the bug. However, Search their forums, they have lots of info.

You can customize the controls changing 'INPUT.MAP'. (It is located at C:\Program Files\NetmechDos\netmech if you installed it normally)

I saved the original file as 'INPUT.MAP2'. Then make a copy on your desktop and open it with notepad.

There you can find all the controls and you can edit them.

If you want to invert your Y Axis on your mouse, look for :

}
torso_tilt {
   - mouse       Up/Down

Change it to:

}
torso_tilt {
   + mouse       Up/Down

Save the file as a .TXT and Copy it back into the Netmech folder. Afterwards rename it to INPUT.MAP and your changes should work in game now.



Hope this helps....

Dave

There's an easier way to do it if you don't want to bother with cut/paste or editing the text file. You have to load up Mechwarrior 2 Mechlab (not Mercenaries) to change up the controls (hit ESC when at the allegiance menu), it's included with the download but the prerequisite is that you must own MW2 to use it. When you save your config, it will already be loaded into the netmech folder (that's where it runs from).

I mostly played Mechcommander though, some probably remember me as either of the three:

Wolf.Queen-SK

Played in numerous leagues, but the two that stood out were starlance.com and flamingsword.com. 
One was a ladder league, and the other was a planetary league.

I miss all that too, and the openness of the game, the feeling that the fight could and did go anywhere on the maps.  I always felt too confined in MW3/4.

I have Streak's AIM, but lost SpanQ's ICQ - does he have AIM?  If you want to send me his for me, I'd appreciate it.  You can add me at maniacbk (stupid old alternate nickname of mine - you might remember it from the AVSpringer document  ;)  Haven't heard from O or Siber in a long time...

Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to see a Spy's City remake for MW: LL - damn that was a great map, it and Appetite for Destruction.  Predator Diorama I'd love to see also.

I'll PM you SpanQ's info.

I almost forgot about fgay, StrikerZz, Serle and the rest of those guys.  :)  Great time.  Heck, I even miss the sorta "rivalry" we had with AV vs. GC's server, well, that until Bloo pulled the plug and joined up with us.  Blue actually works here in my town now, but I've never got to see him.

Hola Gents,

I can't believe all of the familiar names I see here.  BTW, it was awesome meeting you in person Blasty and I see you found the site I was telling you about = )  I really don't think I can say much that hasn't already been said...  It would be great if we could get together another group like the one we had on PPP... 

Let's see Stinger Nomad Dino Crusher Sharniken Earthquake Death Juggernaut Flash DarkDemon Wabagesic Sledge ZeRo PK Chevy/ChevetteMech and the rest of the old CSA that have not posted here yet. Plus Redeye Maud’Dib Tinman Pirate Killer Pit Bull Shogun Smith Gunny Tarl SteelRain Blade Achilles ShadowWolf RhysWolf FanaticWolf SiberWolf Lazarus my brother Cro if he could stop playing WoW ARG! 

Whoa I could keep typing call signs all day and I apologize to anyone that I missed...  CSA may have been a PPP Clan back then but we all had to get Kali to play in NBTI and NBTII, I know some of us played in ADL a bit too.  Man that was a BLAST!  I am looking forward to seeing all of the old faces back online again.  This is going to be the MW version that we all hoped MW3 would be after playing MW2 Mercs 1.00 1.05 1.06 1.08 and 1.1 for all of that time.  I am looking forward to seeing you all again soon. <S>

I was with the CCC back in 2003 on the MW4 Zone.

My callsign was "CCC Zaphod" using a Thanatos heavy Mech. I even participated in some matches in the European Battletech League.   ::)

Man we blasted our enemies to hell.  ;D

MPlayer!  Now that's a blast to the 14.4 modem past.  I hadn't discovered 'Mech back then.  Spent all my time playing the original Quake on MPlayer before I found out about QuakeSpy or QSpy or whatever the precursor to GameSpy was called back then.  What about MechCommander on MPlayer?  Any of ya'll do that?

I was there, by the name of XPuNTeRX. I played in clans but I really can't remember which ones. I had a great time. There are times when I truly miss MC / MC:Gold

Hahaha, I named it that and had it on auto file host ever since that amazing day.  I think that server started out being named XvT Mechwarrior or something like that - AVenger liked Xwing versus Tie Fighter I imagine.

I love the screenshot of Joker, I miss my mplas, jj's and Valor.  Damn Mercenaries was such a great game, I can only hope this one will come close.

I still talk to Streak on ICQ/AIM, him and SpanQme actually.  The rest rarely show up online nowadays - heck, I almost met whoracle in real life up in NYC once but I just missed him.  SiberWolf would come to my lan parties all the time. :)  I wonder if he's still a nuke in the Navy.

Looks like I'm a little late to the party this time, heh. Lots of familiar names listed on here who I haven't talked to in years...

I think he has it wrong... Clanner want to die Valiantly in battle while most freebirths (IS ppl like me) want to survive battle to a nice coushy retirement age or something close to it. (well maybe no Liao and Kurita ppl, they are all like Sacrifice for the emperor and such.)

so it would be a good thing to say: "Glorious death to all Truebirths, (and a nice eventual retirement to all Inner Sphere freebirths xD )

Wow some of this stuff goes way back... Played as Scendore in Clan BlackHorse playing MW2 on Mplayer back in the day.  You will see another of my buds Forlong which I just introduced to this site a few days ago show up.  Pretty amazing just how long ago it was.  The last time I played was with MW4 which I just couldn't get into and of course I still own.  Interesting to read there is some serious modding going on with MW4 and it lives on.

I hope to see some others show up as well.

Many thanks to Crusher from CSA who still trained me even after I bad mouthed him.

Also to Sledge for helping me back into the MW world some years later in Wolf Clan.

To Schalla and gang for always making life difficult

To all Clan Storm Hawks pilots.

And finally to most of you guys I remember, you made a huge impact on [Maybe the youngest mercs player @ the time] and changed me for the better :)

Lookin forward to MW LL.

I played mw2 in the GC with Clan Golian Scorpian (as Reaper while in Kali) right when the Registry pretty completely died. Then I joined The Killing Zone (TKZ - what a terrible name) as Surgeon. I worked as a spy for Silencer for clan Nova Cat on clan Black Jackal, until I was turned over and I realized that playing a game online did not require being ruthless. The Grand Council no longer seeming worthwhile, I sold my services to the "highest bidder" and came under the employ of rap enthusiast KrAyZiE BoNe. Eventually, I became third in command, and shortly after his second in command, Serlestain, took over, our mercenary unit mergerd with the Draconis Combine. Shortly after that, all leadership from my merc unit and from the DCM quit, leaving me the Lord of the Draconis Combine. No one one was interested in leadership positions and I was nominally clueless and/or overwhelmed, eventually leading to the destruction of the Inner Sphere at the hands of the Clans because of a combination of the "overwhelm" rule of The TKZ and my own failures. Shelshocked, and facing the return of an old DCM emperor 'Hawk,' I opted to join my longtime nemisis Lynxcat and his House Jurai, a multi-gaming organization.

OHAI THAR! I wish we had been able to finish the mods to NetMech but we got blocked hard by the guys at GC and told they wouldnt support our modified version :(

I haven't heard from any of you guys since we spent time trying to get banned from the AVMecha server!

The few names I remember, SRM of course, DaCobra, Ulrich, Kristov_K, Streak, and Trendkill.  Deep-End sounds familiar but I can't place it (I'm getting old I guess...).

It is good to see alot of the "old" hands here.  Greets to all I have missed.

Mongoose lasted until the end of GC.
Then the core members moved to ADL, briefly with Clan Wolf, but quickly spun off into Bloodhand Mercenaries and adapted the Mongoose logo for BH.

Hi everyone!

I was in Clan Phoenix during the golden Mplayer days ('97-'99 I think). I use to go by a different name and at the time of my leaving Clan Phoenix my highest rank was Nova Colonel. I remember there being a quarrel between me and former Khan Clearlight during our time in Jumpgate (2001ish) because I stood up for another member which resulted in me leaving. The details are hazy but that's what I remember, I think. Anyway, I'm trying to get into contact with any former members. Please get into contact with me via PM as I would like to gather as many former Clan Phoenix members as I can and maybe start up the clan again in anticipation for MW:LL and the future Mechwarrior reboot.

Thanks!

Shadow Rat Marauders.. don't you folks EVER die?!

(SRM)Gremaldy here.  Played as a member of Shadow Rat's Maruaders from Netmech on Kali to MW3 and MW4 on the Zone.  Still remember a few names but mostly they escape me...

The few names I remember, SRM of course, DaCobra, Ulrich, Kristov_K, Streak, and Trendkill.  Deep-End sounds familiar but I can't place it (I'm getting old I guess...).
Been looking for old SRM members for awhile now, especially the guys from MW4 as that's where I spent most of my time in the cockpit.

GREM!  OMG!

WOW!  Glad to hear from ya!  (Just dropped ya a PM via the forums here btw!)

This is great!

Hello everyone!  I'm glad to see so many of the old school Kali/netmech group still alive!  So many familiar names!  I would love to see more of the old crew resurface and start to to touch base again!

[FB]Streaker  aka (SRM)Streaker here!

Happy New Year's everyone!

Looking forward to piloting alongside (and against) you again soon!

(SRM)Akela here, netmech kali.

Funny, was just thinking about SRM the other day, googled it, and it took me here. Thought I'd pipe up with some the oldies I remember.

My partner in crime of course first, Zeppelin. Of course Dac, as well as Ulric, Surn, Boudica, Sandman, FallingAce, Holly, Carcass, ThunderKiss, Stuka, FireStorm, Wizardry, Big Cat, ChickenLegs, Duce Duce, Deslock, Skully, Majic Dragon, Lucifer, DeepEnd, Slaine, Locutis, Folker...
Ok, that's all I can remember at the moment. Greets to all of them if they ever happen to see this :)

Hey, here's another old hand from Netmech. I suppose I did play as Jawa or JAWA already back then?

Was diamond shark at one point, and some other too. Hard to remember by now. I remember I used
to hang out with ppl like Dogpound and Cobere at least. I remember seeing many of the ppl mentioned
here around. I was never really very active in general chats, so I guess not many ppl will remember me.

I'd love to get in touch with ppl that used to play back then.

Those were different times, in the beginning I only had like 5 hours/month to use internet on 28.8k dialup.

I do see a few names that look familiar, but are they the same pilots?


Khan Tofar
Nite Wing
Clan Mongoose
TKZ

Yes there are a few of us around from the TKZ and Registry.  And some old friends.  Good to see your still meching Tofar.

I used to play MW2 and descent 1-3 on Kali Years ago. I was one of the newest kali members though, and everyone always made fun of me cause of my high serial number. I still have that kali install, and it still works to this day! w00t! I used to play on mplayer too, but I found Kali to be much faster and funner, less robust ya know?

I think I've done the same as you folks. Just had a strange flashback and Googled to see if anything was out there. Soooo many names from, what, 15 years ago. The SRM had a site with photos of all of us, but I suspect it bit the dust a long time ago. My jet-lagged self remembers Clan Godzilla as well - Trajun (?) and KingToady are, sadly, all my middle-aged brain cells can recall.

And who can forget 'Nsane'... first name I remembered when I was thinking about this. He'll be in his late 30s now, early 40s like the rest of us. If only I had remembered to keep some screenshots of the chat and games from those days - MW2/Kali was ground-breaking stuff, but we didn't realise it at the time. What I do remember is trying to fit into the predominantly Aussie/NZ membership of SRM, the predominantly USA MW2 community for challenges, and staying up till the sun was on the horizon, racking up a monstrous phone bill on the 28.8!

Does anyone remember this (how on earth is it still online ?!):

YEah mechwarrior 2 is one of my favorite games ever. I used to play netmech and mercs one the microsoft games zone. I think that my tag most of the time was death_jester. I played in the fool killers clan which was sort of a rule enforcement clan we had a blacklist of known cheaters who were not allowed to play in clan battles. Unfortunately all it took was a change of name and they were back in. I also used to play in the kell hounds with mercs. I also used to play with the ghost bear clan. Ive tried to  get on kali but i cant seem to get netmech to work properly. All the menus and stuff still work but once I launch screen goes black.  I can hear the mech moving and everything else seems to work just no graphics.

I played on mpig back in the day. I mainly played quake and mw2.

Mw2 to this day is still my favorite gaming experience.

I was in Clan Phoenix as Universe and was a Galaxy Comm.
I was  in DR and THC as Crackfiend and was Sakhan.
I was in many other clans as well a lot of the times several at a time.

I remember the days playing with CP-Stoner, lilman, joboo, radar, alien, Kitfox RIP, Clearlight, Valkor.

I had randomly looked up mplayer in wikipedia today and got to thinking about CP. And did a google search and found this site. rofl. When I noticed the OP mention me I had to respond.

Doubt anyone remembers me or what clan i belonged too, but i'm pretty much from the start of mw2 mercenaries with the nice modem and angry parents at the time for insane phonebills for being online too much :D

I started out with Clan Cheetah aka the (CC) then later when we joined up Kali we took a few more people in and became (CSA).

I actually do remember a few names i've seen on here, but its nice to read up about the people here :)

Going way back to the days of Kali I was SRM-CLegs. I have many fond memories of that time and made some life long friendships that I treasure. I don't suppose many would remember me but I remember you guys and I always get a giggle when some old documents bring up macro's and copies of chat. There are quite a few of you I would love to get back in touch with if your still around? Fifteen years is a long time :)

I'm going to have a go at the new netmech too I think :)

See you guys around I hope!

How could we forget you C-Legs......all the heads we stomped in the day....lol. There is going to be a new NetMech>?

SRM Yang,

My apologies for missing you and SRM Holly sir.

Yang you were a big part of SRM domination on the battlefield. We have immortalized your personal Warhammer on Terra in bronze.

It is good to see a lot of the old SRM names appearing in these threads.  Especially members such as Dacobra and the Southern Hemisphere members, TBar, C-Legs, Boudicia and her kiwi brothers.  A lot of hours and good times were spent.
Dacobra and I spent many an hour going over strategies and battle plans, keeping all the paperwork about our forces, planets etc up to date.
Keep the good fight going.

SRM Bigcat signing off for now.

Putting my name down in the Guestbook here.

I played mostly MechWarrior 3 on the MSN Gaming Zone. Played alot in the Combat Zone NUA League and helped start the Combat Zone Stock League before the Zone went down. My best wingmen I lost contact with were CIH_Frost_LM and CM_Scorpion.

Now I am helping manage the MechWarrior 3 Community forum and testing AncientxFreako's new mods/skins/maps for MechWarrior 3.
