New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work

I think this will become a freemium/total MP-oriented again. But let's see.

Now all we need is somebody to make a new EarthSiege game and the Holy Mecha Trinity will be restored.

I'm still hoping they'll put Hercs into Tribes Ascend

Little lord Peter
was missing his leader
While Hercy played in the red.
Down came the gltches
and burned us in ditches
And we slept after eating our dead......

If they do that, I might actually decide to play Tribes!

Re: New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work
To my shame, I've never actually played Heavy Gear.

At least on PC.

I could tell you all kinds of stuff about the DP9 game from the good old days, although I'm told that the current edition of Heavy Gear/Gear Krieg had some teething troubles.

Re: New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work
Has anyone ever got the modern HG running on their PC? I picked up the disks off eBay but couldn't get it going. Can't remember if I needed some sort of dosbox config or something

I remember HG2 having problems on Win7.

 
Re: New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work
I wish they'd get that stuff on GOG.com, I'd pick it up in an instant. Only ever played the demo for HG1

Heavy Gear 2 has had even problems on XP.
Some of the Keybindings doesn't work.

StarSiege also had similar problems, but a community patch was made. Has the Heavy Gear community attempted an HG2 patch of their own? (Is there even a living HG community?)
I always remember Heavy Gear being a distant third against the MechWarrior juggernaught and Sierra's well-made Battletech clone.
But EarthSiege 2 is in even worse shape, it can only be played from an early Pentium Processor, no AMD, No Pentium 4s. Straight Up Pentium 1 or 2.

I think I had a copy of the disc which frequently crashed during some random events on my old WinME computer, and even then it has troubles on XP. Unless that was common.

Hoo boy, stealth in a Mech Gear again. In 2, I pretty much went Gatling Laser/Heavy Bazooka/Very Heavy AC (I liked Anti-Air Cannons because they were accurate and stuff, but they were as loud as crack). Ahh, still reminds me of the days if you get knocked over and a LOT of your HUD elements and other internal equipment went offline. (I didn't bring backup perks, I just bring reinforced internals, Stealth and EXO Armor).

Re: New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work
Incidentally I got both HG1 and 2 off ebay years a couple years back, but couldn't get HG1 to work. Maybe there's a fix online I can try out. Couple old games that I Can't get working! darn it PC!

The sooner it ends up on Gog the better.

Re: New Heavy Gear Game is on the Work
I made sure to hang on to my Aunt's old eMachines eOne - Darn thing got eMachines sued, and so they never made any updated drivers beyond what was on the disc, but it's got Windows 98 and an early Celeron, which means Heavy Gear 1 and most of the other old mech games run well enough.
