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.

An announcement of the latest pack and updates on our part.

Posted by on

Hello, Mechwarriors!

Thank you for everyone's continued support of the project!

Updates were delayed this month due to a variety of circumstances (potentially losing my job, death in the family, etc.). However, my time was well-spent.

The MechAssault Pack has been posted as of moments ago (and is being authorized at this time). It contains 30 variants based on the classic battlemechs as they appeared in the X-Box series MechAssault and MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf!

I am shocked and honored at the level at which our views and downloads have skyrocketed! At the time of this posting, we have...

...over 16,000 views...

...and over 3,000 downloads of the main client!

I am currently networking with members of Clan Coyote on how to address the issues some players have been having with Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries on Windows 7 and 8. Obviously, the game was not particularly designed to run on these operating systems, and Clan Coyote has been working very hard at mitigating each of the issues as they pop up (kinda like whack-a-mole). When they reach a solution, they will send me a write-up and I will post it here.

Thank you, everyone, for taking the fight forward for our beloved series!


Hi there hope you are okay and thanks for your hard work! But i only had the question of how do install the pack?

Thank you. The funeral was nice; mom took it pretty well.

Simply drag and drop the files into the "Variants" and "customdecals" folders as indicated by the Readme.

I appreciate that. Took me longer than I'd have liked.

The next pack is going to be even bigger; hundreds of variants. :P
