Thanks man.

Open data/missions folder and open file A_0_1.abl.
Find:
setTextMsg(0,"EXODUS CAMPAIGN by magic.#Designed for elite difficulty.#30 missions#Resources are very limited",15);

Delete character "#" (3 places).

Sorry, new fixed upload is on the way.

Hi Magic having some problems which are graphics related, I've got a NEC Versa with a ATI Radeon Xpress 200M when I try and run MCO 424 the right hand side of the image is off screen. I've tried setting option screen to 1024 x 768 but it doesn't help, even tried MCRRel_test.exe but no good, any fix?

I have noticed I am unable to load any saved mech builds, or revert to the stock, is this an issue with a large resolution, or is this actually supposed to be this way? The drop down list for switching to others does not work at all.

How do you get the MC2 campaign in this? Or get the content into MC2?

Check more downloads. You have MC2 campaign (carver)...
Download and install in the same folder.

Is there a list of known issues?
I had no problems starting it, but I've run into two bugs with the merc campaign, one just annoying, the other making it impossible to succeed in that particular mission.

The first was at the end of the "destroy only the first floor of the weapons manufacturer, then escort the mayor's APC" mission, I had captured the 12k supply points, but the 'salvage' icon was deactivated (only the helicopter icon.. supplies I think?.. was accessible), so I couldn't do the fourth objective and had to wait until the 3 minute timer ran out (at which point I failed the 4th primary objective, but the mission was still a success)

The second is during the prison rescue mission (alternative missions: teach/escort the prince or recapture a ComStar HPG from Kurita). No matter whether I destroy all enemies last or whether I destroy the sensor tower control last, the last primary objective (reach extraction point) and entire mission immediately fails at that moment.

First: Do you have a pilot available for salvage? If you dont then you cant salvage.

Second: What of the vehicles you have to protect after capturing the prison? If any of those vehicles die, mission is terminated.

Ouch, yeah, I forgot about the free pilot requirement... My bad.

On the second point, okay, I shold have (re-)read the briefing text more carefully. It's a little weird to have no hint of that part in the objectives list though.

Anyways, thanks :)
