How to play MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat

Thanks to Damon, you can now download a full ISO preinstalled:

Mechwarrior 2: 31st Century Combat and Mechwarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy are fully installed packages. Simply launch the game executables as normal (MECH2.exe for the base game, GBL.EXE for the expansion), and mount the CUE files in each respective game (MECH2_16B.CUE for MECH2, GBL.CUE for GBL) as an ISO disc image. This can be done using the IMGMOUNT command in DOSBOX.

IMGMOUNT D [Path to .CUE file] -t iso

Do NOT burn these CUE files to disc and run them using the CDROM drive; there is a bug only present when running in DOSBox that prevents the game executables from detecting the disc, even after a successful installation.

You can find more information on these amazing games at the Mechwarrior 2 community forums at Just know that they will NOT provide technical support for anything other than legally obtained, physical copies, but feel free to search existing threads to find answers to the more common questions, including mapping the controls, and how to play online.

Thanks for downloading, and enjoy!

If you just keep shooting the inspection at it, it functions.

I hope the emmulator will work ... I had the chance to try this game too in dos mode and it performed quite well for a dos based program with all the stuff you had to prepare to make it run like virtual memmory and stuff ... though did not get to try it out in a closed network setting could have been fun ... damn I hope it rus well ...
thanks in advanced ... cause I been wanting to get my old copy to run for some time now ...
love them emmulators guys more power

Amen to that. Graphics got better but these days its all just whatever feeds the masses. Never thought I would ever be calling on good old days but here it is. On that subject: Mighty fine game

I've come to check MW2 after having played MW4.

MW2 is a frigging joke in comparison! Utter bilge!
- The controls are shite, and the so-called "customise controls" functions just WILL NOT let you select ANY of the keys that you'd really want.
- The mouse controls are all inverted, again with NO option to change them around
- The game is slow, buggy and the scenery is AWFUL even for 1995 standards
- Nothing is explained properly in the game, even the training missions explain nothing, whilst huge amounts of text are wasted on endless pointless storytellings, and there is NO manual, no nothing provided in this install
- Even the very first mission is IMPOSSIBLE due to one primary objective being to "inspect" and object that your targetting system cannot lock onto - which means you CANNOT use the "inspect" function on it - and CANNOT complete the mission!

Hi, do you also have the windows 95 version? I ask this because it has hi-res textures, cinematics, etc.

It's hard to believe... I've got this on a CD, along with many other games listed on this site.

The golden age of gaming. I miss it deeply.

Doesn't work in DOSBOX 0.74 under Windows 7 64-bit. At the end of the first mission, the game freezes and you can't go further. :-(
