I was playing this mod a bit and noticed the mechs dont fre anything but missiles unless they are stationary?

Also, is there some correlation between the heat scale and their fire rate? I noticed the mechs fired a bit more when I put on like 89/189 heat vs 78/89 heat....has heat been added into this mod? If so, thats awesome. Cuz it wasnt in the original game.

And I did some editing of the mechs themselves, armor and the like, but I noticed when I changed the armor and max armor the mech stays damaged and wont repair, regardless of what I do...its weird. This mod follow TT BT rules or something?

Either way, cool mod. Good job all.

I noticed the same problem when I was fiddling around with the mech stats. I think it has to do with the armor disposition. Like how many points of ARM go on the Head, Arms, ect.....

When I try to run the program, the game launches in a window and promptly CTDs. I get this error message:

"requires DirectX 8 or later, found 7.04.00.1792"

My Machine:
Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)
Intel i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60 GHz
32 Gb RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 680
DirectX 11

Which has me scratching my head, as you'd think DX11 would count as "later," lol (doesn't have any problems running Far Cry 3, so I'm guessing DX11 is working). Tried running it in 256-color mode, disabled visual themes/desktop composition, and ran it as an admin in Win98 compatibility mode. Broke my heart when it crashed, as MC2 is one of those games that brings back fond memories. Any help would be awesome.

Also tried reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86. When I run it w/out any special settings (just set to run as an admin), I don't get the error message, it just pops up a black window screen for a second and crashes to desktop.

Is there a way to be able to get the mod to load on a windows 7 x64 bit system? I have tried to run in all available compatability modes to no avail. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

MCO works fine on win7 home and ultimate versions, dont know about the other versions. No compatibility mode no special settings. Try running as administrator.

MCO has problems with Intel integrated graphic cards, switch to radeon and try.

Have you installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 (x86) redistributable (Yes x86 version - it wont work with x64 version)

Garyth1275 May 8 2014 replied:

That's not very helpful........

If its working for you.... what settings do you have it running on? what GFX chipset? what changes did you have to make? what OS are you running? did you have to remove or make changes to any of the CVS's? any of those kind of answers would prove to be a better help.

FYI I am trying to get it to run on an alienware custom system M17x model. with the above mentioned 64 bit win7 os. GFX chiset is the a switchable intel onboard and ati radeon mobility 7970m. Getting both the onmitech mod and the original MechCommander 2 has been a major issue thus far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am not here to make bragging posts about hardware; simply installed it without any changes nor specific settings and it runs. The fact that I answered implies that I run it on a win7 64bit system. You asked regarding OS not specific hardware.

The fact that you answered is that you were lucky enough to get it to run on a certain flavor of windows 7 OS. Home? Pro? Home basic? Home prem? Ultimate? Each of these OS have something added or missing. Also a combination of OS and hardware issues are present in some posts I have looked at elsewhere. All I ask is that you be a little more in depth with your response so that it might eliminate some issues/options for better issue resolution.
