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.


wolfman-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.

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

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

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


wolfman-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.

Hey due to the game being unable to recognize my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB the game can't seem to use it and is instead doing all the rendering on my poor old 4th Gen Intel I5-4440. And as such I need to turn off all graphical options for it to run above 20 FPS.

Anyway to edit something or modify the install to make it so the game can use my graphics card?

MC2X has no problem with this card; you may use a laptop with shared memory and then such effects occur. This was dominantly reported and discussed for MCO (a different MC2 mod) and solutions had been posted.

Is there way to refill bombs for specialist? Also can we get that sleek UI MC omnitech have?
Cant wait for that Mother's Clan campaign overhaul, that one was pretty good

There are special crates that refill specialist bombs when the crates are captured. I Honestly like the original MC2 UI much better and will not change it but extend. It is a classic game and I keep the touch and feel.
FAMILIAR AND BETTER.

Special crates? What they look like, because I found load of them and they just add resources.
And the UI is ...well definitely from another age, it takes lot of the screen space and I cant see info and map separately -thats probably worst

They are dark green with yellow marking and are called UWS crates. If captured by spacialist they will add 4 more bombs. If captured by anybody else just resourcepoints.

Furthermore will the repairtruck reload the demolition charges if the specialist needs refitting.

Playing uprising and I am just 5 missions in so no repair truck for me :-(

And few questions - if I equip ER PPC to hellbringer he shoot that weapon from far longer range than raven, I tested them both shooting from hill and raven had to come to medium distance to start shooting ..is that intentional?

-Can I somehow decrew vehicles, helicopters or planes?

On weapon range: no intention, no explanation.
If "decrew" means eject the pilot then yes for vehicles (like mechs. they will just stand on he battlefield without pilot) aircrafts,copters will crash if they are in the air (what a surprise). But if parked prior pilot eject they will stay parked on the ground.

So how to force vehicle to eject? After their armor is done they just explode (like in vanilla) But I saw planes eject on ground and I got option to salvage it after mission. So is there way to target vehicle pilot with NUM8?

yes; sometimes they do not explode like mechs.
But vehicles are more delicate than a mech and explode easier.

I guess that was supposed to simulate armor penetration right inside of vehicle is pretty much game over for crew while mech is just giant machine with cockpit. But, after load of time in game I never saw unexploded vehicle
