Exclamation

It took me *a lot* of time and money but Im finally finished. Now I have all the mech cames ever created *installed and working perfectly* on my PC with all the patches and extras - all ready for som serious mech gaming:

Earthsiege (dosbox)
Earthsiege: Expansion (dosbox)
Earthsiege: Battledrome (dosbox)
Earthsiege 2 (Virtual PC - Windows98)
Starsiege (Virtual PC - Windows98)

MissionForce: Cyberstorm (Virtual PC - Windows98)
Cyberstorm 2: Corporate Wars (Virtual PC - Windows98)

Battletech: The Crescent Hawks Inception (dosbox)
Battletech: The Crescent Hawks Revenge (dosbox)

Mechwarrior (dosbox)
Mechwarrior 2 31st Century Combat (vdms + driver coctail)
Mechwarrior 2 Ghost Bear Legacy (vdms + driver coctail)
Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries (Virtual PC - Windows98)
Mechwarrior 3
Mechwarrior 3 Pirate's Moon
Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance
Mechwarrior 4 Black Knight
Mechwarrior 4 Inner Sphere Mech Pack
Mechwarrior 4 Clan Mech Pack
Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries

Mech Commander Gold
Mech Commander 2

***

Som of them were really hard to get working, especially the windows95 versions but finally Virtual PC fixed all my problems. Glad I never threw away that windows 98 cd.

I started playing with earthsiege and cyberstorm and I am almost finished with former ready to continue in the expansion. Its amazing how fun the old games can be even though you have newer ones installed.

For the games I use:

(1) Keyboard (best for earthsiege)
(2) Optical MS explorer mouse (good in mechwarrior2)
(3) My old trusty Sidewinder 3D ()
(4) Last of its kind (discontinued) MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 (works superb in mech3 and 4)

You started it. Anyway, the only mech game i know is Starsiege and i liked it. But those games, i mean the recent ones, seem to be more interesting in multiplayer mode and i don't do multiplayer.

Earthsiege II was cool.

"Two words, soldier: LATRINE! DETAIL!"

And Crescent Hawks Revenge... as well. The title music was simply great.
Altough I couldn't get past the city escape mission :not_ok:

Hey, I made a savegame editor / mech editor for CHR some time ago. Would you like a copy?
