Whenever I try to run the game, all I get is a black box that takes up a good portion of the screen, then disappears after a few seconds. After looking through other users' errors and trying the respective fixes, I still cannot get the game to run. I've changed my resolution and downloaded the microsoft visual package (and uninstalled any more recent visual packages) I've begun to think the problem is my windows 8 operating system. Any advice?

So I installed this the other night and I've been fiddling with it trying to get it to work. I can't install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 because it says I have an updated version, and when I try to boot up the game the screen is completely black and when I check the Task Manager to close the process it says the program isn't responding.

It seems like the only solution I've found online to any problem is to download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010, which I can't install since I have an updated version. Will I have to roll the software back?

Nevermind, it seems to be working now. I'll play it by ear and see if it keeps messing up.

Can't use the salvage craft or any of the support abilities for that matter.
Is this intentional or do I need to activate something?

Quick question.

Do you have any written guidelines/tutorials for making/using purchase.fit files for your new system, which is totally awesome, BTW (VASTLY superior to the old MW2 "buy as many madcats and clan PPC's as you want" system)? If so, or if you would be willing to make one, would you please add it to the downloads section?

Also... I am considering "spinning", reorganizing and rewriting, the MC2 toolset manual to create an uncopyrighted version, but there's no point in doing so if nobody ever reads it. If I did so, would you post it?

A great universe expansion for a game that I have always enjoyed. Kudos to the team, and to Microsoft for releasing the source code so any true battletech fan short on cash can enjoy this project. Definitely looking forward to the MCG campaigns to be released.
