was able to install it in my vista home premium 64-bit custom pc using virtual pc 2007 with windows 98 se & my treasured pristine copy of the original CD, it's working great!
1) will only recognize the left thumb control and the first four buttons of my logitech precision game pad and can't customize it, it would be nice if it would recognize and let me assign the four front buttons as well.
2) no heat seeking missiles!
Awesome game for it's time! does anyone know how to make it accept and customize 10- button game pads and how to get heat seeking missiles? is there a patch or maybe is it the ghost bear expansion pack that adds heat seekers?
None at the moment
It is very hard to rate this as none of the Mech Series will open. If any one can tell me how to open them on a Modern PC I will look forward to playing them again.
Every thing but the picture is correct.
The in-game picture posted is not mechwarrior 2 it is mech warrior 3 and is some one disagrees with me please dont argue because i have all the mech warrior games.
i like the mechwarrioruniverse verry muche
no winxp emulation ^^
This game was EXCELLENT!!!!!!! The Graphics were Amazing, the sound was great and the new Mechs were Awesome!!! I just wish there was an update to allow you to play it using WIN XP.
Mechwarrior 2 is really one of the greatest games ever made. Everything about it is awesome. Story, gameplay, graphics (for its time), soundtrack, etc.
This was one of the first PC games that I ever played, and is still one of my favorite. Though it may be hard to find now (ebay is your best bet), I suggest that you at least give it a try.
Since it is an older game, the graphics are laughable by today's standards. However, back in its time, they were nothing short of incredible. Also, this game has a ton of compatibility issues with the newer Operating Systems. You can get the DOS version to run up to about Windows 98. Then you have to switch to the Windows 95 version for ME. Microsoft Virtual Machine is the only way that you can play it on 2000/XP, so if you really want this game, be ready to dish out some money.

Is this a program you have to buy from Microsoft or is there a download??

I own both the original DOS and Titanium MW CD's for all three games (Wolf/Jade Falson, Ghostbear, Mercs) and since having upgraded to Win2kSP4, I find that I am unable to play these :(
even sacrificing a machine to run win95 does not help, since I am unable to find drivers that old LOL
you mentioned "Microsoft Virtual Machine is the only way that you can play it on 2000/XP"
I want to know how to accomplish this.
please either reply here, or reply to bigdropboxATcomcastDOTnet.
