Re: Mech Commander Gold Campaigns
Would you like to play old MCG in wide resolution?

So far MCG works fine in:
1600x900 and
1440x900.

1920x1080 woks in logistics but crushes on launch mission.
I think the engine cant handle wider resolution then 1024.

Re: Mech Commander Gold Campaigns
1920x1080 is working too.
...and its large enough to play in zoomed-in mode...

Re: Mech Commander Gold Campaigns
I have good MCX stability in:
- 1024x768,
- 1440x900,
- 1600x900,
- 1920x1080.

I created EXE file for every resolution.
Logistics screens are smaller and located in top left part of the screen and look much better then in 640x480. A little too small for 1920x1080 but in this resolution it is possible to play while zoomed in...

I recommend 1600x900 for normal play.

Will re-upload all 4 files including original and expansion campaign. Works fine under win7 x64, no compatibility mode needed, just unzip and play...
Still need original CD (image) to play. Picked up no-CD EXE from the internet but its for 640x480 only and unstable in higher resolutions...

Is there anyone who can "no-CD" patch those files?

I believe Dameon Tools allows the extraction/playing of MCG. That is what I did regardless.

Re: Mech Commander Gold Campaigns
Link to my first upload - MCG Original (original and expansion campaigns),
http://www.moddb.com/mods/mechcommander-gold-hi-res/downloads/mcx-original

Installation instruction
- Download archive and unzip to the root of your C or D or E disk.
- Open the folder containing game files and browse down. You will see:
MCX.exe (original 640x480 resolution)
MCX1024x768.exe
MCX1440x900.exe
MCX1600x900.exe
MXC1920x1080.exe
- Create shortcut to the exe of the resolution you want to start (or simply dbl click) and go.

Works fine under Windows 7 (x64), no compatibility mode needed.

I tried more resolutions, and most work fine for missions but not for logistics.

I recommend 1600x900 for normal play and 1920x1080 for zoom-in play.

Please note that higher resolutions mean more object on screen - you may get random crushes for some missions. If the game crushes try the same mission in the same resolution again, if it crushes again please use smaller resolution for that mission and after you finish, return to higher resolution and continue.

Some monitors and graphic cards cant support 1600x900 resolution, if the game crushes on launch please try another resolution.

IMPORTANT: You will need MecCommander Gold image file:
Gamestand.net

Mount image with demon tools before starting the game.

Re: Mech Commander Gold Campaigns
Good to know Magic, let me know when the three expansions of the game made by you and the others. I believe they are only the same mechs, no other major things added yes? (Besides campaign of course).
