Very interesting.

Hows the combination of mission selection screen and options screen came together in this mess.?

No one ever reported something like this.

OS is Win 10. I have the main menu down and to the right only showing and having access to the upper left hand side of the screen. Can select all menu items but which are cut in half but unable to move forward beyond main menu because the "Launch" button isn't available on screen.

Was kinda expecting it to shoot 20 missiles, or atleast have a high fire rate. But it just fires one, really high damage missile. :(

Because the original game was not made for this. The original game had only 5 weapon nodes per mech. MCO has 16. I tried more but 16 is the max stabile. Above can sometimes give unexpected results and even crushes. MS did not release the engine for this game.

You can try to make the LRM20 fire a really bright ball that looks like many missiles at the same time. In MC1 it looked like that when you fired a lot of LRMs

Ahhhhhhh ok. What about a weapon animation? If new ones are able to be imported, wouldnt it be possible to create one for the lrm 10/20 and srm 6 to look as if its firing multiple missiles?
Similar to the way machinegun works? seems like its firing a hail of bullets consistantly, but its really one firing cycle.
I heard tell of someone trying to port MC omni to a newer engine, any update on that or plans of?

I love replaying these old games; CarverV with magicX's updates is great! Had some problems getting it to run on my laptop but nothing a bit of dgVoodoo can't fix.

Anyone have some tips for Exodus mission 3? I can't for the love of all that's holy figure out how to distract that many Clanners out for blood at the same time, as squishy as those little civilian vehicles are.

As soon as you start the mission, pause and salvage Hunchback mech in the pirate base. Take 2 mechs (Cougar and Shadowcat). Save Flash for the Hunchback. As soon as she is powered-up. Order her to run to the waypoint...

I tested MCO as well under win8.1 (64 bit) on a 4k graphics system using 2xRadeon R9 290. Everything adapted automatically to the max size MCO 628 can provide and worked perfectly without any graphics issues. At least I can not find/confirm that it is generally NOT working well under win 8.1. Maybe that adds some additional info/value to the posts above.

"Anyone have some tips for Exodus mission 3?"

its the 1st mission u can get ur hands on a hvy omni, so i played it like this: 1 mech active, 1 pilot for salvaging the hbk, 1 pilot to salvage a tbr or smn. just grab the hbk right away, run to the WP with it to get the convoy movin, then move with both mechs to intercept the 2 pirate mechs inc from south. u may wanna do a quicksave after that. 1 mech sticks to the convoy 1 u send back to salvage a omnimech (gud luck there)

btw try to save up ur money after 1 certain mission u can buy salvaged clan stuff in salvage screen after the mission, ull need around 600k then u can buy about all even some elemental suits... ^^ those are damn funny and are handy to train ur pilots in a mission where u cannot or dont want to increase dropweight + cannot salvage mechs

also, contragtulations and thanks for ur dedication and work magic, wolfman and co.

just recently finished exodus campaign and i had my fun, thanks for giving me a gud time :)

noticed a few typos in description/ story u might wanna double check

mechs that get taken out by mines cant be salvaged, pilot just ejects immediately after insertion, idk if u guys can do smth bout that or if its intentional but yea would be cool if that could be changed.

the game runs much more stable than the previous vers. tho it still crashes sometimes... some error msg bout memorystuff (running win7)

i must say, the idea of mechs & armored vehicles moving over the hull of
of an jumpship and having external acces to turret ctrl? is most questionable to say the least, but hey, kudos for the idea with the water&lights; to emulate spehs xD

also, the way mal changes just like that is quite unrealistic in my opinion.

as for the engine, did u ever think about cryengine? from what i know isnt it a "free" enginge? would prolly help making stuff moar stable/have less probs with the newer Os too, also if using that it might be possible to just use pre-existing models of mechs from MW:O, if they allow it ofc. but if done right i could imagine smth rly great emerging from this. u might even find some playerbase in that community, since at least smn ppl there are into MC stuff too and prolly just dont know about what u guys did here.

anyway, waiting for next vers and hoping exodus campaign gets more expansion (some more staff & even bigger battles might be in order !) ^^

regards.

edit:
just remembered, in at least 2 missions "the speed" & the one with a clan convoy moving down from N to S, the river is too broad/wide to JJ´ over it even with a 30t mech(talking about cutting cross the river next to insertion/extraction zone for the speed).... in the previous vers one could get over it. im guessing u had long jump specialist active passively for every pilot in previous vers. reactivate or modifiy map cuz it just feels like ur making fun of the player with comments like "take jumpcapable mechs to cross the river" in briefing, one does, but cant cross........

heres an idea: have pilots acquire the passive skill at a certain amount of JJ´skill like 60,70 or whatever

The following is based on the previous build of MCO.
Bugs:
1.
Killdeer - Mission can not be completed in version 559. destroying convoy elements A+B does not register. also some convoy spawning + detection issues.

2.
DEFENSIVE COUNTER: BANNIKBURG - I seem to have destroyed all enemy units, searched map, but can not complete the 2 primary objectives.

3.
hotkey assigning to pre-set keys doesnt work.

4.
upon quick load, sometimes, units disappear. they're on the status bar, but completely not on the battlefield.

5.
salvaged mechs have their sensors disabled. this is not fun at all. makes it hard to skill-up pilots' sensor skill [which is itself very annoying.]

---------------------
Requests:
A.
make auto-actions toggleable.
auto-capture can make team rush face-first into a base with turrets + mechs to capture something.
if 1 decides to auto-move to repair bay, you cant get the one you WANT to move there.

B.
pilots seem to not be gaining gunnery skill in post-mission pilot review despite kills. institute cumulative skill gain? like 5 vehicles spread over 2 missions. (this may already be the system in the background)
with the current skill-up system, it is easy to kill-steal.

C.
power-leveling jump + sensors is just arduous. it can be done on purpose. anyone who knows how is going to do it, but it just takes so long to be sure you got your points.
maybe just give a free +3 skill, since anyone who knows will just go through the boring process of manually pinging sensors on each mech 10-30 times, anyway.

D.
Display max heat & armor (and current?) of mechs in mech selection screen. For quick comparison.
Otherwise, it is annoying to go to mech bay to view stats on each mech, before choosing which to use/customize/buy.

Thank you.

Thank you for playing MCO.

1. People reported this before and I tested several times. Could not find any problem, it works fine. Did you play my mod of Carver V or Original?

2.The same here...

3. Yes I know...

4. "upon quick load, sometimes, units disappear" - this is new, never happened to me before.

5. Salvaged mechs most of the time have their head blown off. Including sensor - sensors can be destroyed in MCO. Mech without a head (control unit) should not be able to do anything until its control unit is replaced. In game salvage like this is not realistic. At least destroyed sensor is a small addition to reality. In original MC2, most of the salvaged mechs lost their LOS after salvage. This was a very annoying bug now fixed in MCO.

A. Hit the triangle (hold position) button. If selected or set to hold position, mechs will not use auto commands.

B. Vehicle kills count much less then mech kills (5 vehicles for one mech or something like that)

C. Yes, but just giving skills negate the entire skill system, why not giving +3 in each category every mission?

D. Good idea, can do.

No problem.
Purchase list was limited in original MC2 to some number of mechs and because of that I removed all original mechs from the purchase file - to make space for many new mechs. Limit is now much higher and the reason for original mechs not being included is - they are forgotten. I added only mechs (from the orig.) that have their models changed. Blood asp is not changed.

Hi there magicX. I am getting back into MC2 and its user created mods. I see that you recently uploaded this file and the MCO Exodus Campaign at the same date. What the difference between the 2? From my understanding they both contain that new campaign right?
