New campaign for Mech Commander Omnitech - Clan Wars by nicosuave.

Description (from the author):

You start as new merc commander and are trying to earn a reputation for yourself in the innersphere before the Clan Invasion. From simply escorts to defense to full on assults your unit is tested to their limits and this is before the Clans come to take the innersphere back.

This campaign was created to try to include some of the glory of the books into the game. It is not perfect, but I felt the Clan Invasion is something that has not been done yet, least when I made it.

Very frustrated...I can run MCO 424 perfectly, but no matter what, with MCO 559 either briefing screen and the actual mission are cropped... My desktop res is 1600x900 but the game seems to believe that it's 1280x800 then scales too big in consequence....So... I lowered the res on my desktop to 1280x800 the game fits but terrain and UI looks kind of blurry...and graphics a lot worse than 424 win 7pro 32 Nvidia GeForce GT 430...

Gday,

First things first - incredible work. This is scratching a very precise itch. My attention span with games these days is woeful but this has me enthralled. Great work.

Question 1)
Exodus campaign. Are the icons for in mission logistical support (ie salvage/mine layer/repair truck) supposed to be greyed out for some missions?

I had to scout an enemy pirate base (4 nav points then extract. There's an enemy atlas in the base according to the briefing). The first time I did so I noticed the salvage icon greyed out. Yes, I had a spare pilot, and yes had 10,000 spare cbills. I thought it might have been deliberate but I reran the mission and the salvage icon was suddenly available and working.

Move on a bit and I'm on exodus mission 2-4, operation denial. All icons in support are now greyed out despite multiple restarts. Is this deliberate? If it is - sweet. Annoying but artistic vision and all. If its not I cant see how it wont harm my campaign through lack of salvage.

Question 2)
Is there always supposed to be salvage after a mission or is it intermittent? Mine has definitely been intermittent.

Thanks in advance

Anyone know how to turn off random resource gain from Resource Trucks/Buildings? I'm on the Carver 5 mission to capture Davion mechs to attack Steiner with, and the random resource gain has left me with too little resources to actually capture the 5 mechs.

I'm also having a bug that the second quick load during the mission will crash the whole game, so quicksaving/quickloading to try and "unrandom" it is really, really frustrating.

I'd actually "completed" this mission once, leaving a "bonus mech" unsalvaged, but then the mission crashed at the end (seems like the same crash I'm getting with the second quickload; happened every time I tried to finish the mission from a quicksave a minute before).

*edit*
Actually, my whole game seems corrupted. ANYthing I do involve several loads (reloading saves from the preparation screen included; it's not just quicksave/load in the mission) will crash the game the second time I reload.

Maybe related to a Raven mech I have that has unrepairable structural damage? It's icon is red in the loadout screen, but I can send it on the mission; the repair structure icon is highlighted, but clicking it does nothing.
Any ideas?

Has anyone solved this issue? I'm having almost identical issues with a variety of campaigns (Lasko, Clan Wars, Mercenary's Star). Is it a bug with this version of Omnitech?

Meh, resolved. I went a few levels back (thanks for the autosaves!) and replayed a few. No more bugged Raven, and things seem smooth now, not crashing on reload. I resolved the resources issue by editing in 50k resources to the mission start condtions.

*re-edit*
Nope! Still crashes on reload. Which means I can't use quicksave/quickload at all- I have to load a normal save, enter a mission, quickload once to get back to my quicksave, but then I'm screwed, because another quickload or even completing the mission will crash the entire game.

Nested exception! - Cause: 'EnterWindowMode'
Error: "No software rasterizer available" at 0x0.

Could someone explain how to fix this crash?

I had this problem, only way I could get Omnimech to run then was to set my desktop to 1080p instead of 1440p. I didn't have to do this for Wolfman's but his always wanted to run at 800x600 unless I changed to windowed mode and put it to 1920x1080, then I could hit alt enter back to full screen and it would stay there, but at the end of missions I would then get this error again. So basically when you play just move your desktop res to 1080p and change it back later.

What is your screen resolution?
Error messages like this are created by the game engine when the requested resolution is too high. For example 4k.
Try a resolution around 1080p.
