The features and the inventory available in MC2X are to some extent the collection of the work of the people mentioned above. They deserve the credit for their outstanding work and my greatest thanks for being able to feature their results in MC2X.

After almost 14 years of collecting inventory and features and improving I stopped to continue an anyhow incomplete list of who deserves credit for which features or object.

Magic has by far provided the most inventory and MC2-insights over several years.

THERE IS A LOT OF MAGIC IN MC2X --- Thank You

The first revision of MC2X was release in 2006 and continously improved and extended since then.


MC2X is neither a total conversion nor a revolutionary approach to change MC2; it is intended to be an evolutionary improvement over time. This is a stand-alone installation; do not mix with any other MC2 installations or expansion packs.

MC2X is based on the released MC2 source code; the source code release did not contain multiplayer gaming functionality nor embedded video capability.

Therefore MC2X does not support multiplayer gaming nor in game videos.

Because of the missing video capability of the released source code, MC2X does not contain the CARVER V campaign and is not fully compatible to missions or campaigns designed under and for wolfman-x !


MC2X is not compatible to any other MC2 mod or campaigns/missions designed under other development environments. Never mix with files from other authors.

The GAMEPLAY OPTIONS MENU

MC2X Game Options

Beside the Difficulty Level and the Unit Color there are 14 selectable options to change the gameplay.

Originally there were only 2 Options:

UNLIMITED AMMO:
Select to provide all units the in the game with unlimited ammunition. Unrealistic.

L-C/R-C MOUSE CONTROL:
Select to change mouseclick usage during mission. Best when DESELCTED.

The new options are:

SANDBOX MODE:
Select to game without restrictions inside the gaming system limitations.
Enjoy all unit types,max pilots,max dropweight,plenty of CBills and resourcepoints,
no time limits and all support options.
Cheating: thus campaign mision results will not be saved in this mode.

SANDBOX MODE PLUS (can only be selected when SANDBOX MODE is selected):
Cheating: Campaign mission results will be saved despite cheating.

ACTIVE UNIT CAPTURE:
Select to allow the in-mision unit capture of enemy units that are unarmed, powered down, or unwilling to fight. If captured by an infanty-type unit, the captured unit will join your forcegroup and be piloted by the former infantrist. If captured by any other unit type, the captured unit will switch sides and become friendly (defector).

DISABLED UNIT CAPTURE (can only be selected if ACTIVE UNIT CAPTURE is selected):
Select to allow the in-mission capture of disabled units.

RECHARGE BUTTON:
Select to activate a button to recharge repair units. Simplifies logistics during mission but is unrealistic.

QUICKSAVE/QUICKLOAD:
Select to be able to quicksave your mission at any time and reload this status later.
Unrealistic but not cheating.

AUTOCAPTURE/AUTOREPAIR:
Select that player units scan the rea within a specific radius and:
- automatically capture capturable enemy objects
-automatically get repair at repairbays within range when idle.
Unrealistic: repairing and capturing should be a task under commanders control.

SPY MODE:
Select to simply see everything on the map; all enemy units are revealed.
Furtheremore fog is eliminated.
Cheating: Campaign mission results will be saved despite cheating.

INVULNERABILITY:
Select to make you invulnerable during mission.
Cheating: thus campaign mision results will not be saved in this mode.

ALARM LOOP:
Select to loop invulnerability reminder during mission.

AUTOCBILLS:
Select to automatically convert unused resourcepoints at the end of a mission into CBills

AUTOCBILLS2:
Select to automatically convert unused dropweight into CBills after deployment.

Default settings are

ACTIVE UNIT CAPTURE ( SELECTED), QUICKSAVE/QUICKLOAD (SELECTED) ,AUTOCBILLS (SELECTED)
and all other (DESELECTED).

Some options allow bigtime cheating.
Select your options carefully and consider that cheating in my view is for those who are desperate.
Good MechCommanders don't need cheating.

I've run in to another issue. In the mission where you capture a steiner base, I am stuck on the "destroy all reinforcements" requirement. I've searched the whole map and can't find any reinforcements. I suspect they did not spawn when I captured the HQ.

Based on our previous issue, I tried force firing to kill every resource truck I captured along the way. That did not help.

I've posted a quicksave file here: 1drv.ms

Any insight on what I can do to fix this is much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

You overlooked one enemy fuel truck. Once you captured or destroy it the mission can be closed as intended. No campaign issue at all.
The truck is inside the base where most f your units are. You can hear the sensor ping.

Oddly enough, those trucks weren't there when I was searching the map.

When I reopened the game and reloaded the quicksave, they appeared in game and on radar.

I think the act of exiting the game and reopening it, then loading the quicksave fixed it. I will try this before bothering you again with any future issues.

Sorry for bothering you, and thanks again.

I am unable to finish the mission where you rescue claymore and destroy the air towers in the carver V campaign. When I bring all my mechs to the rescue waypoint, nothing happens.

Is there a way for me to diagnose this issue, or a way to force a successful mission via console commands?

Thanks for your work on this classic game.

I do not see the repairtruck at the extraction marker. Move it there as well. All units want to extract.

Sorry. I should've been clear that I tried the repair truck earlier and it didn't work. I tried again as you can see in the above screenshot and that did not work either.

As a side note, now that I've been playing other campaigns, I notice every objective in carver v gives me 0 cbills per objective at the end of the missions where other campaigns award me some amount of cbills per objective at the close of each mission.

Any chance these issues are related, and any ideas how to solve them?

Thank you for replying and taking your time for me.

I finally got to it and gamed through the specific mission. It closed as expected without issues I checked the objective setting and could not find anything that from my experience could the effect you described, It had never before been reported either.
Thus I do not know how to help further. Try the mission again and/or send me a savegame file of the last stage where you feel it is stuck.

Here is a link to the save: 1drv.ms

I've tried starting the mission completely over, and both times I ran into the same issue.

Thanks again for your time!

I believe you. Can you send me a savegame file?
Did you modify anything or mix in other files?

I have not modified anything; all files are straight as the installer left them. I’m on windows 10, running the game as administrator in Xp-sp3 compatibility mode.

I don’t know how to send files through mod dB, so I uploaded a file to one drive. Here is a link:

Onedrive.live.com

And an alternate link:

1drv.ms

Let me know a better way to share the file if that doesn’t work, and thank you!

It remains unclear what is actually wrong but your request was absolutely valid. Destroy the truck and repair truck and the mission closes as expected. Not a clean solution but it allows you to move on. I may investigate further another time.

I can confirm this fix works. The second I kill that fuel truck I get mission successful.

As a side note - I noticed my rewards for each objective at the end of each mission are always 0. I hope that adds some helpful information to the mystery.

Thank you!
