I can't run it at higher than four or five frames per second, even with everything set at lowest, so I'm afraid I do not.  If I can magically find a better computer, I would, though, and definitely.

I rarely find myself playing
Unforunately not really enjoying this beta a lot... I guess its a lesson learned about spending 60 on a founders pack on a game that revealed pretty much nothing on its actual gameplay when it started going on sale.
Urutorahappī!!

It's still only beta, right? I'll play when it's released.

The horrible risk of a game being bad, for my tastes, is why I always look for a demo if I have to pay, heh.

I didn't buy a founder's pack, and I still got in. :P

I like it. It has the mech feel, especially since I added a tag to my user.cfg to switch it up from the default fov=60 to something more like 85. (note: anything past 75 will make your atlas' cockpit seem claustrophobic)

anyone who wants to run with me, add Melvin the Bold to your friend list in-game, we'll tear it up.

Never heard of the spider tbh

They seem to be going down the FASA starter kit game box I have somewhere, so I expect to see Banshee, Whitworth, Assassin, Vindicator, Grasshopper, Panther, Zeus, Clint, Cyclops, and Hermes II before others.
I don't know any of these mechs  :blah:

Panther's the main Draconis light mech.
Vindicator is the main Liao light mech. Both mechs have PPCs as main armament.
GHopper is a faster, heavy close-range fighter.
Zeus is like the Battlemaster in some respects.
Clint was in MW2 Mercs, kinda sucks.
Hermes II kinda sucks too. It's a fast medium mech, like the clint, though better armoured.

Cyclops is a command mech.


Banshee is cool. The stiener variant is a better assault than the Atlas I'd say. Though many would disagree.

Assassin is a mobile medium mech, lightly armed but cool looking.
And the whitworth is a . . . . medium mech with some lrms. Like a smaller version of the archer.

The Vindicator is a Medium (40 tons).
The Grasshopper isn't any faster than the Zeus or Battlemaster.
The Clint and Hermes II are both Mediums that are desperately trying to be Lights, and succeeding in all the wrong ways (except that one Hermes II that goes 9/14.  That one works)
The Assassin is an even more jumpy Jenner with a less focused main armament.
The Whitworth is a Catapult-Lite.

 
The Vindicator is a Medium (40 tons).
The Grasshopper isn't any faster than the Zeus or Battlemaster.

Oh yeah I get it confused with the Quickdraw all the time. Two mechs I almost never play with

Meant to say the Vindicator is a medium. It's 45tons by the way not 40 :)
PPC, LRM-5, Medium Laser, Small Laser. 4/6/4 14 or so heat sinks, etcetera

Nevermore.

Also they've continued to drop a lot of hints about the Clans coming in, decreased activity in the Periphery pirates, HPG disruptions in the Periphery...

If you're on these forums, I hope you've already seen the MechCommander Omnitech project (seriously. Check it out.) but you may also be interested in another forthcoming free-to-play battletech game, Mechwarrior Tactics, whenever it gets around to coming out.

I would suggest care when directing MC1/G/2/O to MWT as MWT is a turn based game based on the table top rule set (with alterations made to make it more computer gamer friendly), is online only and PvP focused so is a different style of game.  Having said that having played the MC games I am looking forward to MWT.

I just solo'd an Atlas in my COM-2D, I'm pretty much sold on this game now.

Open beta is starting on October 16th

This game is so great. I'm so hooked I'm more of a clinical case than a valid reference.

The NDA no longer exists so you can make videos and stuff now of the beta:

They made a graphical update just after I filmed the video too  :ick:

Zacam: Uh. No, using an effect is okay. But you are literally using the TECHROOM ani as the weapon effect.

I haven't seen the new graphics properly because I need to tweak my settings again...

The game is slowly getting better with each patch, but its still far from ready for open beta
The most fun im having with this game is playing it with sparda/hades/aesaar/eserai. Playing it solo is pretty meh.

So the latest news is that they're bumping open beta back a little further and tweaking matchmaking a bit. I say it's always nice to see people taking the time to do things right.
