Yet another MW5 success.

I refrain from questioning about the future to save time.

A variety of platforms too. Success is great isn't it?

Cheers MW5!

Too bad my joystick is supported in MWO but not supported in MW5. Otherwise I'd play it more often. And I'm not buying an 80-100 dollar joystick for 1 game. Melee is still awesome though. Now to be able to pick up trees and club with them.

nice quality of life changes PGI, I like the new map information. Just started a new career tonight so I haven't gotten my highlander with a claymore so I can yell "FREEDOM!" at my screen just yet. Before DLC/free updates/patches/support/etc are complete for MW5, please PLEASE PGI add the MWO mechlab to MW5! Let us build our troll mechs and run amuck in a PvE sandbox.

Well, i got my electricity bill yearly overview and it will have me delay the buying of this DLC to next month as the amount of outstanding electricity money is eating up all my non-dedicated spending budget this month.
So the delay at GOG does not hurt and hopefully the MW5-Mods can catch up until then, i will probaby have ended some other games i play by then and time for MW5 again.

My backlog is still some dozen rarely if ever played games...and i have yet only opened up a fraction of Elden Ring... Posted Image


Habe fun with it anyone! Posted Image

There's a community Google doc for setting up HOTAS for MW5

THANKYOU for making the toys i play with.

may i offer to playtest any future DLC before release?
it takes less time to play through all these missions than it does to download the update (roughly an hour) but it takes a little while to figure out workarounds for the bugs etc.
i am more than willing to spend an hour so that nobody else has to, and i've no doubt others would volunteer the same service.

THANKYOU for making the toys i play with.
and a huge THANKYOU in advance to the modders amongst us.

this is not intended to be a sarcastic or in any way offensive post, i'm guessing you get plenty of them and whilst i probably agree i am aware you don't really need to keep hearing it.
i just want the game to succeed and i pay my money so i feel i am allowed an opinion.

THANKYOU again for the toys, even if they're broken for now.

Interesting update so far…trying to decide what to do.

New campaign or import?

Was there an overall graphics tweak?

Yeah, i think the price for the DLC is absolute reasonable.

Thank the war for making energy so expensive among other things that drive the inflation.
Got an alert of my landlord company that they want us to increase the energy part of the rent by 50% or we will face huge additonal payments on our final yearly bill.

They cant force you to do so but but it makes sense so everybody is at least prepared for it.

Watched Baraduls Call to Arms Vid, he is quite quick with it and already released one:

Thx for it mate!


Have it become all well for all of us!

I'm having a problem with the Call to Arms update.

When using a previous game the new post mission "move to cold storage screen" freezes the game once it displays a list of mechs I have in cold storage. I have all the hero Mechs saved from previous games and when reaching the full list after choosing to place a mech in cold storage (via the new menu that downloaded with Call to Arms update), the list scrolls off the page and the game freezes. I cannot scroll down the list and all other buttons are grayed out behind the cold storage mech list.

Anyone else getting this?
