I played the original Mechwarrior video game on my Amiga 500 when it was a turn-based using overhead-view on a hexagonal map.

Then I played Mechwarrior 3 on my PC, and was overwhelmed with the number of control keys and shortcuts required to make it work.

Also played a game called 'Shattered Steel' which was more my style of hop-in, run around, kill stuff, and move on to the next target.


Nowadays, I'm content with a couple of driving games, You Don't Know JACK, and Spider Solitaire.

Have fun though! Looks nice.

Oh yeah - I've also been playing a lot of the old coin-op arcade games using a MAME emulator. It's a total blast playing Galaga, Tempest, Asteroids, Star Castle, Rip-Off, Joust, and all the old line-drawn 'classics.'

Of course - I STILL suck at every one of them, but they're still fun... and don't cost a quarter to play every time. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

its been years but i started with battletech crescent hawk's inception and worked up the line through the original mech warrior and in the 90s net mech. i actaully did beta testing on the original net mech
after mechwarrior 4 i gave up and went elsewhere.

nothing was a great as 8 player net mech over IPX open environment.

the best was hiding in a canyon with my power shutdown as 2 enemy players sat above me on the plateau. I powered up underneath them confusing the radar, and jump jetted straight up the canyon wall behind them and let loose with PPC grouped weapons, took out the legs crippled both unit as they fell and hammered the cockpits with medium lasers until my reactor overheated and attempted shutdown Big Grin , hit O to override the shutdown and hammered them some more with small lasers Big Grin ah ghost bear legacy and i miss my old NOVA and commander Big Grin

I [still] have a Gravis Thunderbird - love the separate trim and throttle... but I never did get the cool Microsoft 'twisty' stick though.

That's the way to do it. I've actually thought about building a stand-up arcade game cabinet, and stuffing a MAME computer inside of it with one of those cool 2-player mega 'button, stick, and trackball' controllers into it. They've got some kits and designs for sale for someone to craft such things as well. Maybe after I get my Mach 1 on the road, I might find the time to do that.

I don't know about any online versions, but I think I could probably send a copy your way. Wink You'll need a MAME emulator, then pick up the 'ROMs' from your favorite games and you're rockin' & rollin'.

http://mamedev.org Also, http://www.mameworld.info (I can't open it at work, though). Do a Google search for 'MAME' and check out some of the sites for information and where to get the emulators and ROMs.
