Why do most mechcommander 2 mods remove the top two guns from the blood asp and add a 2 on the name, or is this just some wierd recurring glitch on my end?

Awesome mod by the way :)

I am very happy to see this MWO. I wish I could MOD because I have many Campaign Ideas But What I can do is write. I have a ve.ry extensive knowledge of the BT/MW storyline and I would love to help anyone out there that enjoy making MODs but do not like writing Flavor Text. I would be more than happy to help out in this regard if there are any of you out there that would like to Focus on the MOD itself rather than the Flavor Text and Background information. I believe without Context and background information, even the best put together MOD can fall flat on it's face to certain players My Email is luksm23@yahoo.com. Please email me if you are interested in my services or post on this board, though I would perfer the email. LONG LIVE THE BATTLETECH UNIVERSE!

I have a problem where only a portion of the menu screens fit my screen and in a mission I have extremely low FPS. My resolution is 1920x1080, I'm not running dual monitors, and I do have Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 retribution installed. I can run it just fine in windowed mode but not full screen. Any idea on what the problem is?

I had that issue with the menu screens, but it was because I wasn't setting my machine's resolution (I'm running a laptop) down to the 1024 x 768 that MC2Omni supports. Once I did that, the menus worked fine.

I don't have anything to add on the framerate issue, other than what magicX has in the notes. The mod really doesn't seem to like any other applications running at the same time, so I kill my web-browser, email, etc. when running it.

Of course I want that file, please upload somewhere or send me the file.

There is a file sound.pak. It has all weapon sounds inside.

In order to unpack you will have to use an old tool:
xplist.

Usage:
1. extract files
xplist -u sound.pak a wav -r

2. pack files
xplist -r sound.rsp sound.pak -r

Sound rsp is the file with file order to be put in pak file.
I will look through my archives for example.

I uploaded the normalized mission speech file here:
Djdood.com

It looks like the permissions on that Rapidshare are set to not allow downloads, so I can't get to it.

It might be interesting to make an alternate sounds pack that uses sounds from MechWarriorOnline, etc.

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.
