Total Battletech 1.40!

Before installation remove any previous TBT and or Mechwars files (including custom EXE, rev31.mwp, mw.mwo, mw2.mwo). Drop/ unzip files (rev31.mwp and TotalBT.EXE) into directory that Total Annihilation is installed in. Default for total annihilation is usually "c:\cavedog\totala". Run using TotalBT.EXE (must have Total Annihilation Play disc in for skirmishes, or multiplayer) Multiplayer does not require a disk if the Totala2.hpi file (ie: multiplayer spawn) is installed in the Total Annihilation directory. Single player campaign does not work, so don't bother report that as a bug, as no one has made any campaigns... (yet?) :)

The new modded EXE will allow for play of any CC BT and 3rd party maps with out modifying thier extinsions. If you have maps from previous versions in .mwo .mwx or mwi extensions just renames them to .ufo.
