Hello, MechCommander fans.

Would you like to play this old game in hi resolution?
There are available patched EXE files for 6 resolutions:
- 1024x768,
- 1280x768
- 1280x1024
- 1440x900,
- 1600x900,
- 1920x1080.

4 archives uploaded containing MCG with 4 pairs of campaigns.
- MCX Original (original and expansion) campaign,
- MCX Exodus and Turncoat (campaigns made by magic and LouHobbs),
- MCX X-Ray and DSC Raid (made by Dropship Command X-Ray Company and Wolfcross),
- MCX Xenocide and Bengal Lancers (mad by Shadowcat and Akula).

It must be this way because its complicated to make only campaign installers for MCG.

Installation instruction
- Download archive and unzip to the root of your C or D or E disk.
- Open the folder containing game files and browse down. You will see:
MCX.exe (original 640x480 resolution)
MCX1024x768.exe
MCX1440x900.exe
MCX1600x900.exe
MXC1920x1080.exe
(available for download below)
MCX1280x768.exe
MCX1280x1024.exe

- Create shortcut to the exe of the resolution you want to start (or simply dbl click) and go.

Works fine under Windows 7 (x64), no compatibility mode needed.

FOR Windows 10 and Windows 8.x users:
1. Create shortcut to the exe of the resolution you want to start.
2. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for" - Windows 95 or Windows 98.
3. Check "Reduced color mode" - 256 color
4. Check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"
5. Check "Run this program as administrator"

I tried more resolutions, and most work fine for missions but not for logistics.

I recommend 1600x900 for normal play and 1920x1080 for zoom-in play.

Please note that higher resolutions mean more objects on screen - you may get random crushes for some missions. If the game crushes try the same mission in the same resolution again, if it crushes again please use smaller resolution for that mission and after you finish, return to higher resolution and continue.

Some monitors and graphic cards cant support 1600x900 resolution, if the game crushes on launch please try another resolution.

IMPORTANT: You will need MechCommander Gold image file.

MOUNT MCG IMAGE WITH DAEMON TOOLS (or similar program) BEFORE STARTING THE GAME.

GameStand's web page does not start the download - I am guessing it's broken.
Is there a reliable mirror?
Thank you!

None of the resolutions will scale logistic screens. I could not do that without the code.
All resolutions work for missions.
