I just stumbled across this.

http://www.abandonia.com/games/en/471/Mechwarrior.htm

A link to download the original MW game. Unzip it and look for the mw.exe file. It works fine on WinXP.

:)

I didn't like the first one. II was where it was at. I had them all, but looking for them recently couldn't find any of the discs, which upset me a lot. I really felt like some mecha action, and there's no new mech games around. Nothing really compares to MW II and III. :(

MW2 was my introduction to PC gaming. I was a hardcore mech fan for many years. I have an old P2 running WinME especially to play it every now and again. I've got them all except MW4:Mercs.

I can't play the missions in MW1 for more than about 3 seconds before it says, "you are a disappointment, rah rah rah".

http://www.abandonia.com/games/86/Battletech-theCrescentHawksInception was amazing!

MW1 was great.. but the lowest, fastest mech could beat anything as long as it was a defensive mission. I think it was the Locust? Just mount it up with twin MGs and hammer them in the back of the legs.

Works fine on WinXP? Woulda thought you'd be playing it on your other beast RM =P

Sounds cool though, might play after I finish the other 9 or so games I have to complete...

Right click the game shortcut and select compatability mode and set it to win98.
With any luck that should allow it to work, unless it was one of those stupid games that specifically needs a 3dfx card with glidegl or whatever it was called.

MW2 needed a Pentium 90 and a 256 colour videocard and 16mb of ram.

I originally clocked the game on a 486 dx2-66, was a little chuggy.

I've been just playing MW2 on my P2 machine. Got through 3 jade falcon missions in about 15 minutes with the difficulty on Medium.

MADDOG: RM's Assault Config

4x 15 LRM's
4x Medium Pulse Lasers
2x small Pulse Lasers
1x tonne of additional forward center torso armor

Once in-game add jumpjets via cheatcode and unlimited jet juice. Circles of death, from above.

Bloody good, although it over heats alot.

WHAT THE BLEEDING HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!?

Mechwar 1 was excellent. I still hum that cantina music from time to time. Negotiating contracts to their *absolute* highest return (which might take 15 minutes) for the extended campaigns. Jumping around, selling mechs to places like Land's End so that you could afford heavies for the Chalice mission.

Your lancemates were utter rocks, though. Couldn't hit dick, and couldn't follow orders to save their own lives, couldn't pilot their way around a mountain, were always crossing your line of fire when you were OBVIOUSLY shooting the hell out of something at medium range. Basically, your team members were just something else for the enemy to shoot at. And if you missed a leg-shot with the Battlemaster's PPC during the initial long-range volley, god help you. You were in for a rough mission.

The only way Mechwar 1 sucks is that it's probably tough to get working properly on current hardware, especially the 8-bit Soundblaster sound. You really need an i386 machine to give it that 5 frames-per-second mechdriving goodness.

Mechwarrior 3 had the overall best game engine. Mech 2 looked really great for it's time, but 3 definintely topped it.

Meachwarrior 3 was my Birth into PC gaming. Fuck that game was good. I might go see if I can find it.

I loved jsut mounting a bunch of lasers on a madcat and aiming up for a Volley at the legs. Line it up FIRE! usually blasted the legs clean off and always got mad salvage.

Mech 3 best mech =

Annihilator with 4x LBX-10 autocannons and a bunch of extra ammo. Link all the autocannons to one weapon group and kill almost any mech other than another annihilator or daishi with one burst lol. Didnt overheat when things got hectic either cos theyre just autocannons :)

MW 5 was canned, because 4 tanked, from what I heard. :( But 4 tanked because MS fucked it up, not because people were bored with the genre/franchise. There's a huge gaping hole for a mech game in the market at the moment, has been for years.

I loved Mech2 - never did play Mech1. Didn't get into it all that much, but really enjoyed it while I was playing.
I probably should pick up Mech3 just to see how it improved on it.

if you're having problems running it in Win XP, try running it under Win95 mode. it may fix your stability isssues with it.

I wish it were that simple. I've spent ages trying to get it to work properly and the best i've done is running it using the DOS execute with shit sound and laggy gameplay.
