Modding MechCommander:

MechCommander Gold - P.R.O.M.E.T.H.E.U.S v5.0
History Version Changelog

planned release: (December, 24th, 2020)




Hello dear MechCommanders,

i think some of may already know that i'm working out completely new content for MechCommander. Now the first official announcement. I confirm that i am working on a new standalone built for MechCommander Gold. After i have created and developed MechCommander Gold - Darkest Hours - to it's final version 4.2 built i would like to start to work on my own ideas and content for the game. The Darkest Hours version is totally different from what i am actually doing with Prometheus. While i only merged existent content for MechCommander into one XXL standalone - the Prometheus version 5.0 will contain totally new stuff. New maps, a completely new single player campaign that will include approximately ~200 missions total when it's finished. Actually i work on the completion of Operation 1 - containing the first fifty mission block for the new XXL Clan campaign. Although i am inventing plans and ideas for the second campaign slot, that finally may be implemented into Prometheus.

In addition some voice actors and me are working on new voices for MechWarrior pilots. Parts of this project will even take place in the existing MCG Darkest Hours standalone version. The new voice packages for custom made warriors will be introduced via optional update and the fullversion download will be upgraded with new voices until the project is finished.

The first demo built release will probably take place for download X-Mas 2020. This depends how far my modding work will continue until then. Actually i plan to release a full Operation 1 containing 50 brandnew single player campaign missions for MechCommander 1. This Demo Version will then be continiously updatet until it will reach it's final standalone status.

Update entry: 01/02/2020 Happy New Year giveaway:

After the pre-release of the new MechCommander Gold - Version: Prometheus... - i've got some complaints about missing briefings in the Alpha-Built. I realized that i underestimated the power of written words for this tactical gem, so after one more week of constant work and about +100 workload i released a (not planned) new year Full Version Update for the game.
MCG Prometheus v0.1 users just have to download this little patch in order to upgrade their builts to the latest state. Here the changelog - showing what's new on this wonderful Clan Wolf Campaign Edition Standalone:

  • Operation 1, Mission 17: Due to many crash reports i deactivated footprints, waypoint system and parts of the new ingame physics - this mission works like original MC1 now, recommended to play with lower or native resolutions in fullscreen, other res may crash (limit breaking bud damn nice mission) - (30/12/2020)
  • Operation 1, Mission 22: rebalanced payment due to campaign length (31/21/2020)
  • Operation 1, Mission 23: rebalanced payment due to campaign length (31/21/2020)

  • Introduction briefing for Clan Campaign
  • Introduction briefing for Mission 34, end of Clan Campaign Beta Content - you have the benefit continuing your campaign by being thrown into the Darkest Hours XXl Campaign merge until new missions +34 will be released!
  • Introduction briefing for Mission 1, Expansion Merge (Darkest Hours content)
  • New background design
  • Could reduce the music files size by 66% each - thx to nemos idea - quality is a bit lower but quite okay for a 16bit soundcard using DirectPlay App
  • ...
  • ... wait for more with the next patch update on Eastern 2021!

RizZ's Note: All updates will be released here. The latest update will always contain ALL previous updates and it will always be a zipped folder in the same structure the MCG Prometheus game folder has. Just overwrite the older versions of new file content with the files from this download. Really easy to install!

MCG Prometheus v0.1beta users just need to download this package in order to update their versions to the latest version. Full Version Download is only for people who might not own Prometheus yet.
