Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries is a battlemech piloting simulation and part of the Mechwarrior and Battletech universe unleashed by FASA Studios. In April 2010, MekTek received permission from Microsoft to release the game for free using their MekMatch torrenting program. Now that MekTek has refocused its energies on Mechwarrior Online, it is up to the community to keep the classic mech piloting tradition alive. This group will also serve as a platform for downloading new content created by the community, including new maps and mech decals, some of which have been hosted by other enthusiast sites.
This pack provides four player-created custom decal versions of official decals which are showing up incorrectly in the game. Winrar is required to open this file. These decals are already included in the main game pack.
It took a thousand years to create the perfect battle machine...but it only takes one misplaced line of code...to cause a catastrophic chain-reaction in the fusion core and destroy an Atlas in one fell swoop!
That aside, we have noticed that four decals-those for the Lyran Alliance, Federated Suns, Lyran Commonwealth, and Draconis Combine-show up as different decals between the Options Menu and Mech Bay.
This pack provides those decals as player-created custom decals to allow mechwarriors to circumvent this problem.
These decals have already been included in the main game file, but are being posted here for those who may already have the game installed without these decals in place.
