How to play MechWarrior 2: Ghost Bear's Legacy
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 http://www.mech2.org/. 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!
The game is now available in its full state, thanks to the Mechwarrior subreddit.

I remember buying this for $2 back in the day, besides a trippy intro it was actually a shitty expansion.

The audio tracks in the .cue sheet are shifted by 2 seconds. Subtract 2s from each track from TRACK 03 onwards to fix, so 23:32:67 becomes 23:30:67 etc.
Pretty minor, but else every music track (except the first) starts 2 seconds in, which, depending on the track, could be jarring.

Really great expansion. Merceneries took MW2 to another level but this continues what made MW2 so great with an increased difficulty level and host of new missions. Highly recommended.
