i ran more 'needy' games like skyrim and high ram mmo's on my refurbished laptop w/ windows 10 without problems. hope this is encouraging

when windows "improved" after windows 8, the game got "broken" I was told. which means if u have windows 9 or higher it won't work. game came out 2 early 4 windows 9 or above 2 comprehend and download. Harebrained Schemes is coming out w/Battletech pc game in 2017; i'm personally gonna wait 4 that 2 come out. then we'll have our gaming we all loved back in windows 7 & 8 back. just b patient.

It's ironic that when I installed this on my 2k Gaming PC that it works like a charm; but, when I install it on my 2009 HP desktop it won't work lol.

Hika0821 2016-08-28 -3 points

Q: Does the guide in "The Gaming Session" link actually work? I'm running a Win 10 and running into a lot of problems. Should I follow the guide to a 't'? When even I launch the game I get a message saying I don't have minimum specs, or if i do get into the game, the graphics glitch out at the menu, where I promptly close the program. Any hints? What has worked for everyone else?

mauler88 2016-08-25 0 point

Getting a nested exception error, and tried the /gnosvideo and sound. neither worked.

for those who have video glitch, like what some our friend comment previously, please go to "base" folder, find a notepad named "option", and change this videodriverindex=-1

goodluck.. :)

Just a tip-- once you have a 'Mech with 3 critical beam/omni slots and enough tonnage, make sure to equip at least one ER PPC. They're lightweight (6-7 tons), have no ammo cost, and can remove almost a ton of armor in a single shot. The only downside is that they generate a LOT of heat, so make sure to save room for a few heat sinks. I typically outfit a Daishi with 2 ER PPC's, an MRM-30, 2 Small Pulse Lasers, and 2 Large Pulse Lasers, saving the rest of the tonnage for missile ammo, armor, heat sinks, and engine power.

@ the48thronin I have win7 64 bit and works fine.
-I downloaded the mektek version
-I used WinRAR to unzip it
-then I played it, no problems.
so try the WinRAR program.

The48thRonin 2016-06-15 -2 points

Alright, I'm running Win7 64 and I have managed to install the game with VirtualClone but when I try to run the game all I get is a error message stating the program has stopped running. I've tried running in compatibility mode but no dice.

Aiden 2016-05-14 1 point

@Vthokie

I had the same problem, I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and still the same thing. I'm going to try running it in compatibility mode and see if that fixes it. I'd suggest that as well.

VThokie 2016-05-12 0 point

Hey @poopedmypants (lel), I'm using Windows 8 as i still haven't gotten around to updating to 10, I'll try the compatibility mode and see if that works

Hey so downloading this game is fine however when I run it, after the opening Cinematic the main screen is unreadable and sort of glitchy. anyone else have this problem / know how to fix it? it would be much appreciated. thanks!

jayf78 2016-04-30 0 point

@ foster, hey bro can you be a bit more specific about your problem?
if I had to guess I would say you are missing the WinRAR program or
some other program to let you UNZIP the downloaded file.

esf345 2016-04-26 0 point

the mektek version for download is an updated game engine and high quality textures along with both mechpaks which both come with the original mechs when they came out and mechs made by some people at mektek inc., even though everything is the same as back when it became free on the mektek site the only problem is you cant have the resolution fit to your monitor as there are only 3 choices 1024x768, 800x600, and 640x480.

@admin, sorry I meant the original MEKTEK, my understanding is there is a better one than the one that is listed and thought you were in the process of uploading,maybe I misunderstood what I was reading in some other peeps posts.

Murderkai 2016-04-23 2 points

I was 5 when I used to play this back in 2008-ish on an old shoddy PC.
The disc was in there when it died so we abandoned it to rot in our garage forgetting about the disc. Now it's 2016 and i'm 12.
For the last month I had been searching the entire house for MW4 since I really wanted to experience the nostalgia again, forgetting it was in the old PC. I then realised last night it was still in the PC. I unscrewed the PC and opened the disc compartment. There it was!
It was the most excited i've been int the last 2 years.
I loaded it into my new PC and installed it. After about 10 minutes it finished.
It was th most disappointed i've been in the last 2 years.
'Installation Successful, Please Insert Disc 2'
FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Murderkai 2016-04-23 0 point

Used to play this when I was 5 on an old MSI computer in 2009. Wow 60GB of hardrive it was amazing. Then the computers capacitors died and we could no longer play it so we abandoned it and left it in our garage. Now it's 2016 and i'm 12. I wanted to play MW4 so I searched the entire house instead of the garage. I was really disappointed after looking for it for a solid week. 1 month later I remembered it was still in the old PC. I looked there, unscrewed the PC and found the disc. I was so excited. Put it into my desktop and installed it. Then I was the most disappointed i've ever been in my entire life. It said 'Installation Complete... Insert Disc 2' FFFFUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Ender_2 2016-02-18 0 point

Now if only someone could track down the MekTek mech packs. They added so much to the game over the years, but every copy of them that I find now is plagued with viruses.

a really good MechWarrior game.
does anyone here know where I can get more maps
to play on for the skirmish mode?
or is there a way to update game features?
what a GEM this game is to play.

longDADDYlegy2k 2016-01-29 0 point

in my opinion the BEST MechWarrior ever...yeah yeah I know, I know....what about MechWarrior online it looks way better blah blah blah, this looks good enough 4 me, I don't need to be ONLINE to play it, and it has skirmish...the only thing I am missing is MORE MAPS, and I say PHUCK that MECHTEK thing, I don't even know what the hell a mechtek even is.
so download this and be happy-

78ppk78 2016-01-27 0 point

so what is that mektek thing and why would I want it anyway?
this game seems good enough without it, it already includes
some editors and stuff so what good is a mektek???????????

I love this game, i enjoyed mw2 back in the day, mw3 didn't do much for me but it was ok, but this little sucker is great, I am playing on my acer-win7-64bit.
installed and played without any trouble whatsoever...I am sad to hear that some of my fellow gamers are having trouble getting this up and going...I even tried it
on another laptop running XP without any problems, can't believe this game is
free/abandoneware!!!!!!!!!

Been a fan of Battletech and Mechwarrior since the earliest days that I can remember. MW4 Mercs is a shining example of a phenomenal game in their lineage, and while apocryphal at best, is still a great way to get your fix of battetech.

Bishop 2014-11-14 -1 point Windows version

@Manux 323
Just unpack the downloaded file. (you can use a plethora of free software, such as 7-zip) and then put the unpacked folder to the location you need, (program files?) and then when you want to play, start the MW4Mercs.exe that's in the "base" folder.

confused 2014-10-09 -1 point Windows version

must be a christian,the h word might be hell dunno about d word,dick?

Bishop 2014-10-07 -2 points Windows version

When ig88 said "the h-word" or "the d-word" he meant expletives. swear-words.unclean language. The h and d represent the first letter of such words. Which some try to avoid. This game and it's predecessors are well made and I would recommend playing them, although with caution due to the concerns voiced by ig88.

tforsaken 2014-10-06 -1 point Windows version

ig88 can i have some of what your taking what the fuck is the h word?

FB 2014-10-01 -1 point Windows version

@IG88:
What's the "d-word"? What's the "H-word"? Your short review would make a lot more sense to me if I knew what you're talking about. Drosophilia? Hamartophobia? Who knows?

ig88 2014-09-30 1 point Windows version

this game is very well done. the only 2 problems are it has use of the "d-word" in some of the levels and some of the mech names have the "h-word" in them. for the missions, my sugjestion is to turn of the sound and listen to some good techno instead. for the mech names, there is not much youcan do. this game for windos xp, not dos, but it works on windos seven also. somepeapol say it is not abandone ware, but it is nolonger sold by the original company and so i would not wory about it. all in all, I rait it 4 out of 5.

TuntematonSika 2014-09-26 -1 point Windows version

RickStone 2014-09-02 -1 point Windows version

I keep having a small problem with this game; after playing about half-way through my last installation of the game (from this same site and download) and from the very start of my current playthrough, the torso slowly aims downward and I can't seem to get it to stop. I have to constantly manually re-adjust the aim which can be quite tricky in the middle of combat. Does anybody know of this problem and how I can fixt it? Thanks!

Ian Dresari 2014-07-20 -1 point Windows version

WARHAMMER it's a 2002 release

Ash 2014-07-14 -1 point Windows version

This game was simply superb, it's got everything you'd want in a good mech game, a good degree of customization, and decent enough AI (Both ally and enemy), the game would probably be sold for $20 on GoG if it weren't for legal disputes with MegaMek, which btw, this version is the MegaMek version, which adds an additional 60 or so mechs to pilot! If you have the original, this is pretty much the Deluxe Edition, must have.

keppelectic 2014-06-21 -1 point Windows version

I have an original copy of this game. When i installed the original, AVG notified me of a Trojan, which i removed and there were no problems at all for me. If anyone is receiving this it might just be an outdated file or so forth. Whilst i have an original, having a 2 year old rub it along the tile floor makes a difference to the install. This copy worked fine for me and i am running Windows 7 - 64 bit, just downloaded and opened MW4Mercs.exe and has been great since then. Still the best Mechwarrior you will ever play!

@{CYT}™Cmeg 2014-06-04 -1 point Windows version

This IS a playable version of MW4 v3.1 (it IS 3.1 isn't it? TBQH I can't remember). Why should we all go emailing you? How do we know your not going to lump us with an MW4 vPasswordStealKeylogger eh?
Might be worth asking around "mechstorm.com" (the only MW4 forum/site left on the whole net) if they know bout this!

@Disapointed 2014-06-04 -1 point Windows version

I've been playing this download of MW4 for a few months, and not noticed any kind of virus troubles. None of my AV's detect anything. But, now you mention it, I'm sure I've heard other people mention finding this trojan. AFAIK it is a false alarm - it must have some code that has some similarities to one of the well known trojans, and perhaps some cheaper / freeware scanners LQ heuristics misidentify it.

{CYT}™Cmeg 2014-05-25 -1 point Windows version

disapointed 2014-05-25 -1 point Windows version

the most important file in this whole download is affected with a virus. specifically MW4Mercs.exe, and the name of the virus is TROJ_SPNR.0BF412. This sucks, I've literally tried so many websites and I just want to play this game already. well I guess I'll just enjoy it through youtube videos.

Asso 2014-05-24 -1 point Windows version

Though the game works fine, one niggle, if you want to make your own maps using the map creator tool provided - you're stuffed! There is a file missing in this installation - "tctd.exe" - without it the map creator simply won't work - and it is impossible to find this file anywhere else on the net.

Pink Floyd 2014-05-21 -1 point Windows version

The whole series of Mechwarrrior is timeless. This was the last one and still holds up incredibly well 12 years later. The stand alone Mercenaries series of both 2 and 4 had more to offer than the originals. Lots of options and incredible replat value

joshmasterjosh 2013-10-01 -1 point Windows version

You can't use this by dragging the zip file over to the dos box. You have to add manually and it has to be a windows profile through d-fend reloaded, not a dosbox profile. You have to navigate into the "base folder" inside the mechwarrior 4 folder and find your exe file. Good luck.

Cartortus 2013-09-26 -1 point Windows version

I downloaded both MechWarriors and D-Fend, i tried extracting with defend, but it told me it didnt have executable files. what did i do wrong?

Just download the game and then extract the entire folder someplace (like your Desktop or Programs folder). Really simple to install and play.

Honisgrave 2013-05-23 0 point Windows version

I Down loaded this file twice, 1st time it said it wasnt a ziped file and the second time, when I put it into D-Fend reload it says that the file doesnt contain any executable files, so it wont run after being unpacked, bit of a
waste of 3.5 gig of download!! If you have a solution please email me.
