MechWarrior Scotty of the Jade Falcons too laments being excluded from the game.

Haven't played any games besides a pick-up L1 tech with my brother.  That's it.

Bloodname will come soon enough.

That's what you think.

The Pesht Armored Cavalry looks forward to the chance to kill many inept player characters.

Huh?  Pesht Armored Cavalry?  I thought there was only the Pesht Regulars.

Also:  I already have MW4.

I build 'Mechs, I build semi-almost-merc units. I have to call my complete RCT and transport/aerospace support of minis something and I'm not terribly fond of the FedCom anymore. :P

I was referring to the fact that lots of people are going to end up playing MW4 when it gets released for free, and you are going to be blowing them up in the name of Clan Jade Falcon and earn your bloodname that way.

Do I need to post what the Trial of Bloodright is so you know how Clanners actually get Bloodnames?

I used to design 'Mechs. But since I was a kid they were terribly overpowered.

Its DCMS... not DCAF...


In any case.. managed finally to play a bit of both mc1 and mc2 couple od days back... Just awesome.. especially MC1... effects - even small - were just like taken from the MechWarrior 2 Mercenaries intro... Age has been far less kind to MC2 than to MC1 imo.

Yeah, MC1 looked a lot better. Go sprites.

What's frustrating regarding MC2 is that although Microsoft has released the source code to it, there is no SCP-like development/improvement effort going on, which is just a shame, really.

There was an established mod community before the freespace source was released. The freespace 2  engine was a dream to work with before the source came out also. . .

There has even been an unofficial patch for MC2 made by people using the sourcecode. I should have it laying around on one my backup DVD's. I don't know what it features all, but at least it came with a quite a number of NEW vehicles and even mechs. But it was hard to use in the editor, because the new entries didn't receive proper names. Still some amazing stuff in it.

I saw that and installed it as well, but still....The engine is pretty limited and quirky, at least on my system.

Yes, the ingame look is unfortunately still pretty dull. It's just like a miniaturized version of the MW4 engine (and probably really is). Unfortunately no one (including me) get the idea of making a simple texture patch for the boring ground texture, that would have already enhanced it quite a lot IMO

MC1's Timber Wolf was probably one of the most feared 'Mechs of the game, 2nd to the Warhawk. Sadly, in MC2, the Timber Wolf isn't nearly as impressive, and the Warhawk was no where to be seen.

I think I remember that one. Added Jenners and the lot, didn't it?

There were several unofficial patches. Wolfman-X's had absolutely nothing to do with the BattleTech franchise, so they were largely ignored by the community. Magic released his Unofficial Expansion, which added a lot of new 'Mechs and tanks as well as another campaign, but was inordinately difficult.

Yea, that was the one you intro'd to me, NGTM-1R. I had quite a lot of fun once I got it to work, though I agree that it became very much more difficult.

Heh IGN had a top twenty five PC Games list, Mech Warrior 2 31st Century Combat came in ninth.  Anyway they had a shot of the old box cover, and even today it still looks completely *****in'
