Just a short reminder:

1. Download MCG-Darkest Hours Fullversion
2. Extract the *.rar file into your game library "MCG - Darkest Hours\..."
3. Mount the MCGold.iso file (inside fullversion folder)
4. Start the game with the resolution.exe you desire
Notice: For best result start MCX.exe files with WinXP SP3 compability and 256 reduced colors, Menu will always be 640x480 resolution with frames & before you start it the first time DirectPlay must be installed. For more information look there:

The website NoGutsNoGalaxy.net is down. I discovered that in a side information of NGNG podcast 195 - first 15 minutes - what a waste of time watching this going down that way. My MSG to them:

,,l,, -_- ,,l,, (Sean and Bombadil, i still love you and this is no drama - just publicity - even bad publicity - is publicity - its for free - so what?)

Actually im recreating all your loved stuff here on modDB. Just visit and explore my profile.

Stay healthy, that's an order!

Hey,

Just played the 1st 3 missions of the original campaign - took a break and closed the game down - came back about an hour later and restarted the game, but none of the saved files are there (meaning i have to restart from scratch)

Now, i may have made an error and launched the game in another resolution than the one i played earlier; but i tried a few others and found that they too have no save files.

Did i inadvertently 'wipe' my progress by launching a different resolution or is there something wrong with game files etc?

Deactivate any write protection in MechCommander game folder. I recommend to save manually when autosave doesn't work. But strange i never had this or heard of this problem before. Without further information about your system / OS and how you run the game / how you installed it - i cant help.

Thats fair enough - it does seem to be the case though, at least for me.

In other news, im getting a Crash to Desktop every so often - an 'EXCEPTION' (Access violation at 0x006B9B20) along with a bunch of file location under 'processor/stack'

Any idea what that might be about? its thus far prevented me from completing Mission 14 several times now D:

... and it's subarticles. I don't help with any "ACCESS VIOLATION" - when you can't play right - it is not my issue sry.

Don't just copy the f***** disk content and making it gamefolder. It's bullsh*t.
Download a regulary pre-installed game folder (look above) from modDB and start game from there when *.iso is mounted. It is that simple. Dragging CD content to hardrive always results in sh*t.

If this is in response to me, then i havent copied any disk content and made it a game folder.

I downloaded the file linked above and followed the instructions - only 'alterations' i made were copying/replacing the files from the 4.1 version update you had too which is what you advised on the relevant page.

The Access Violations may have been related to the waypoint bug that you just linked.

Also, i seem to have just found out that i may have been playing a bunch of player-made missions rather than the original campaign?
Am 18 missions in on the 'First Operation', got stuck being unable to progress the mission so went to look for a walkthrough and it appears each Operation is/was only 6 missions each - so there doesnt seem to be anything helpful for this mission im stuck on, lol

There are campaign overviews here in moddb. I guess when you need walkthrough information you post a comment there and MechCommanders will help.

Darkerst Hourd works well but I can't make mission editor work. Mission editor windows pops up but then shuts down. What should I do to make it work?

Emulate windows 98 is the only possibility I see. Editor is a 16bit application that definitely doesn't work with 32bit/64bit systems right now.

I have a Intel Pentium 2 with 233mhz and windows 98 se on it and it works I installed the game physically and can freely mod.

Due to this exact issue, I went the route of installing a virtual machine with Windows 98. I then Had mount the game .iso thru VM settings to install MCG and editor onto the VM. Then i had to create an .iso file with win98 drivers inside it by also Mounting it thru the VM settings just to move the drivers onto win98 VM. This was an absolute pain but it sure seems to be the only option to get the full benefits out of the map editor.
Now be advised... If anyone thinks of going this route just know that Windows 98 is sooo outdated that you can't even browse the web to even download any drivers or files. So putting usb drivers into an ISO was the only work around to move files onto the VM. The hardest part to this process was to make win98 read USB flash drives in order to transfer map files back onto Windows 7 or 10. Sadly newer flash drives don't work regardless so you have to find an old used one that's like 8 gigs in size. Also win98 will force you to format the flash drive on its OS before it will read any files on it.
If you make a solo map and extract the DPK file you will only need the .Sol and .Fit file to transfer.

But don't expect much from the editor it has tight limits and anything beyond must be scripted manually into the game files. I use editor only for getting x and y coordinates on maps and place some terrain and buildings, everything else I'm scripting myself.

If anyone wants the minimods I originally made for NoGutsNoGalaxy (Fixed voices, Fixed portraits and Ballistic Weapons Reloaded 1.2) I can reupload them here in Moddb.

Jesus, I didn't expect your return after the purge. Welcome back!

I hope you took matters into your own hand with the unfinished portraits and voices so I won't have to upload them.

Gonna be fun to go back to this once I figure out how to inject Reshade and a decent wrapper with more compatibility into this thing (to add some retro-ish filters). Here's a demo: I.imgur.com

I'm glad you're still alive. I invite you into the modding group. When you like you can upload your stuff here. I'm sure i have it in some download directories - but yet no time to look for and i'm still working on alternate voice packages, too.

My optional visual sight and weapon rebalance mod (look into RizZens Downloads) is what you are searching for.

The mod from sean i wont offer cause it is full of bugs - and my mod above is the perfection of imperfect result SeanLang did...

This link should give you access to the optional patches. Keep in mind that i can not offer much technical support for those game changes and i recommend making backups from your game directory before you become in danger to destroy your built.

I had to do my own resolution exes myself.
1366x768 and 1280x768

For the people wanting to know, you just need to search the resolution as a number in the .exe hex mode... you need an hex editor for this. And then change it, of course. But since it's just this, I think they should be included...

You can send them to me. There is currently some more exe stuff that will upgrade the existent resolution package soon.
IronArthur created ALL high resolution files as No-CD exe files!

Moddb.com

The link above shows you my resolution notes. There is explained in detail with screenshots how to change resolutions on MechCommander if needed.

Edit: 1280x768 is standard resolution in the first place and its already in the existent res-package.

Sorry about 1280x768, I added that to another version (a rip). But 1366x768 (or 1360x768) is also a common resolution and not included in that link either. How would I send it to you?
