Well, if I determine who the official in charge of that sort of thing is, I might try it.

Doubtful, but I'll try.

Because ModDB does not possess an authorized license to distribute the game.

Microsoft owns it, and authorized it through MekTek.

Mektek died when Smith and Tinker sold the rights.

Therefore, no one but Microsoft has an authorized license to distribute, even though the game was released for free, but only under Smith and Tinker & Mektek while they were still active.

I don't like it any more than you guys do.

Well, like I said, I'm not here for money or to compete. No one's made any money off this game in a few years now, so I'm here to help keep the community going.

Tech support page going up now. So will features about Clan Coyote and Battletech Star League.

That's about what I know, too. Very unfortunate.

But we'll keep things running as long as we can.

Sounds like a graphics card issue.

Although, try uninstalling all your Mechwarrior games, then try this pack and see if that improves things.

Sounds like you have a graphics card issue.

There is a readme in the main game folder which addresses how to get the game to work with today's graphics cards.

Also, adjusting your compatibility settings, autoconfig file, and your graphics card control panel might help.

The files featured here are MekPak 3.1 all patched up to .0030c.

This pack adds variants created in the Mech Lab, and iconography converted into useable decals. The variants are based on the loadouts seen on mechs in Mechassault 1 and 2. I hope you enjoy them!

It works to fix the game's issues with helicopters and freezing.

The HD patch is not yet included. We're upgrading the client in phases to make sure nothing else breaks.

Some people are having issues enough with Windows 7 and 8. While the game was never designed for those operating systems, Clan Coyote is working hard to try to come up with solutions.

One step at a time.

Yeah, definitely a graphics issue.

Try updating your graphics card.

Also, the Readme in the game itself has a section that addresses advanced graphics cards coupled with the game. That may point you in the right direction.

The game was never designed for Windows 8.1. This sounds like a resolution issue. Try adjusting your settings with the autoconfig.exe file.

There is a group out there called BattleTech StarLeague and NEtBattletech; we're working on networking with them.

There's also the GameRanger system which continualyl has active lobbies.

Try adjusting your graphics card controls assigned to the game entry in them; Nvidia cards have this feature.

Clan Coyote is working on a solution. I know it's frustrating, especially because everyone's computer is different and we're all working on a fix for a variety of issues.

If you have control panels for your graphics card, you might have to adjust some settings specifically for the game entry in them.

Thank you. The funeral was nice; mom took it pretty well.

Simply drag and drop the files into the "Variants" and "customdecals" folders as indicated by the Readme.

It's clean. Otherwise I wouldn't be using it! XD
