If your mouse is missing try disabling/enabling the Hardware Mouse Acceleration.

I replaced the RIP's sound files with the ISO's sound files as GENTLEMAN's post, but now I'm getting stuck on the 2nd campaign mission which says it needs a texture file that I can't find. I tried replacing the texture.fst file with the ISO's but it still will not get past this. Anyone got an idea?

I can't get my mouse cursor to show up in the game. Slightly troublesome :/

Mouse will still highlight things as it passes over them, there's just no cursor.

I loved this game many years ago ! thanks a lot.

Just a heads-up if you're running Windows 10, you don't need a 3rd party iso program, win 10 has the ability to do that natively. No more need to download something that might try to sneak in a piece of ad/crapware to give your av some fun times. For more info, check this post out.

i had this game but i lost it. then a guy named Scott Clem showed me a better game but i still wish i could play it again.

I had this working OK on a Win7/64 bit on SP1, but my hard drive crashed. I got a WIN7 image backup on the repaired machine and was reloading games. I had the MechCommander2 original disk, but when I try to reload it and run it, no joy. I had Task Manager up to show me what was going on, but it was over so fast that I never saw the image come into memory in the first place. I'm going through compatibility stuff but so far, that is also no joy. Any ideas?

Ami 2018-05-06 0 point

Me again!! If videos arent loading, i suggest playing them separately on a fileplayer ? Or replacing the rip version files with the iso.
For any other fixes.

Please do some googling. 2018-02-25 2 points

@Everyone whining about how to play.

ami 2018-02-20 4 points

for the no mouse problem:
Disable Hardware Mouse Update under Graphics.

EBG7 2018-01-28 0 point

I can't see my mouse and it makes my game unplayable

This game has many flaws compared to its predecessor and the biggest one is the enemy AI behavior of targeting only the first of your units it sees, no matter what, until it dies. Pretty disappointing that no one has managed to address that despite the fact that the game has been open source for over a decade.

To all those who can run the rip version BUT WITH NO SOUND but can't run the ISO version at all, this worked for me on 64bit win7 professional:

Install ISO version

Download RIP version

Find the file directory for your ISO install (should be C:\program files\microsoft
games\mech commander 2 by default or something similar)

Find the DATA folder and open it

take the sound folder and use that one to overwrite the sound folder in the DATA folder of the RIP version (i.e. delete the sound folder of the RIP version and cut/copy and paste the sound folder from the ISO version in its place the correct sound folder should be close to 200mb)

Open RIP version EXE

Enjoy :-)

If your game is getting stuck at the opening screen, hit Esc, Space, whatever to get out of that screen ASAP. If you skip past it immediately you're golden. Sounds crazy I know, but when I don't skip the intro the game locks up or crashes. But I never have that problem after skipping.

Rip version doesn't have sound, Can't get iso version to work on Windows 7. I really loved this game when I had it in physical form, too bad.

hi I'm new here

Will this work on windows 10 ???

RedTieGuy 2017-02-06 1 point

Same here in terms of audio not playing. But, also, once I finish the first Campaign, my graphics get messed up with the second campaign. Sensors are all jacked up.

sparky 2017-01-25 0 point

@JARTHUR4707 I had this problem, too, with the RIP version. I downloaded the ISO version (MDS/MDF, actually) and installed it, the sounds all work fine. There's a 146 MB difference in the folder size of "sounds" between the two versions, which may account for this.

Tempest 2017-01-15 -3 points

Hmmmmm, the installer says that it can't install on to a 64 bit installation. Reckon I've got any options?

X-Grunt 2016-10-27 -3 points

Cannot find an exe file in the down loads to install the game, what am I missing?

Frozen Spirit Jac 2016-10-19 -21 points

I have tried to run this program from no matter how many downloads I have tried. And it never seems to work.
I have tried using Magic Iso maker, and running it from a mounted Virtual Drive. Tried running from a burned CD & DVD. Tried coping files into the the harddrive and running there.
never seems to work. Even changed the Compatible modes ...
Any suggestions on how to get it running from Windows 7, the Editor & the library works. but the game itself...

jarthur4707 2016-09-16 0 point

I'm having an issue where the non FMV audio isn't playing. No mech sounds, music, ect. However, all of the FMV files have full audio. Any help would be appreciated.
