I played MW3 right there (that exact disc) when I was 3 years old on a SideWinder Joystick. It was awesome. Thumbs up if you still play these games.

I would if I could still get them to run!
All the fixes I have found have not worked. :(

Still run MW4 though - when I cannot play MWO. :P

Just install VMWare Player and find clean Windows 98 vmx image on reliable source. Way to go.

Already tried that.
Didn't work. <_<
Also dug through every single forum I could find that talked about it and tried every. single. fix. offered.

Even downloaded that set from TPB.
Didn't. Work.

I've got some friends who are good with PCs that should be coming up next summer I am going to have take a look at it
Until then - I am not even going to look at my disks.

Edit: and by didn't work - I mean I even have a Win98 PC still running, and could not get it to work on that.
Disks are near mint - so that is not the problem.
All the files are still on the disk.

They even run on my brother's laptop fine
Just not on a PC I have steady access to. :angry:

Nice collection. Only things missing are the afore mentioned Mech Commander 2, and the original MechWarrior.

But a very nice collection none the less.

Ah, MechWarrior 3. I had no idea what awaited. Hey, kiddie, here, have a balloon. No, no, your first one is free kiddie. Have fun! See you soon! ... (and often).

Wish there was an easy way to get MW3 + PM installed and working w/o bugs ... easily ... on xp and later. It makes me wonder if I can dual-boot XP and '95 on this laptop.

If your XP is an upgraded 98 then it should work fine. Mine is and I can run it without bugs.

Posted 03 November 2014 - 10:07 AM

Played all of 2, still have Mercenaries, the Clan ones had too little content for me.

Tried 3 but never got it

Never got 4

Did some of MC1 & all of MC2. Custom stuff was OK.

Did all of MW1, that had a storyline!

I started on MW3 while I was on my first deployment in the navy. Picked it up in Kuala Limpur. Was stone cold addicted and had a huge crush on the bushwacker and black hawk. Then came MW4 where the Uzeil and Mustang became the target of my obsession. Mmmmm Mustang.......

In there somewhere though I was neck deep in MC and MC2. I miss MC2 really. Had it working for a little while on my W7-64bit but then something went screwy. Hasnt run right since.

Ahh the good ole days.

Crap I'm old....

I started on MW3. MechCommander 2 and MW4 were the next following for me because we got a new computer that wouldn't run MW3 so I begged my dad until he got MW4. Then in 2009 I got the Titanium trilogy and played MW2 games and got hooked (beat them all), and then in 2011 I got Black Knight, MW4 Mercs, and MechCommander 1 for my birthday. Then I worked on collecting the rest. My MW1 and Crescent Hawks series I found but they are ruined, so I am going to save money and buy them on Ebay in the original BIG BOXES!

*also to game companies maybe reading this BRING BACK THE FREAKING BOX! THE BIG BOXES TOO NOT THOSE TINY LITTLE ONES! REAL CARBOARD BOXES!*

I have that download but I hate it because there is no Multiplayer which I wanted so I bought a real copy. Also I am looking at buying MC2 in the BOX soon because Nostalgia *I had the original box version*

I can't get Mechwarrior 3 to play properly anymore, I have a Radeon card and it just sends APCs and my own mech into the sky randomly. None of the purported fixes out there seem to work :(

Mechwarrior 2 came out about a year or two after my brothers and I first started playing BattleTech (in middle school), so I definitely have fond memories of it! Fortunately DosBox runs it just fine.
