Don't think this Christmas is an option. They are only in the first stages of development. Here is the full article. It will be simply Mechwarrior and the time is 3015 AD in the Inner Sphere Sucession Wars (Pre Clan), the time of Hanse Davion.

http://uk.pc.ign.com/articles/100/1002164p1.html

This came out today, 9 July 2009.
BTW, a bunch of the TF2 folks are excited about it. That is where I found out.

The Developers did Transformers!!!! cheesy

cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry cry

You dont know how long we have waited for this!!! Its truly perfect! Thank you Smith&Tinker!!!


We will have this when it comes out and we WILL have the PCs for it! We have to hopefully get everyone here in the same boat! We most probably will do upgrades for the game instead of purchasing a whole new PC.

This is gonna be soooo amazing! I cant even believe this is happening! We will always play Venge though! Venge is what has kept this clan and others, our friends alive and well! We will not forget that and we will always play Venge just as much as we do now! We're not going anywhere!

This new game does allow us to expand our mech horizons! The awesomeness we got just watching the trailor was indescribable! SO INCREDIBLE!


The first thing that came to mind when I seen the Atlas in my face was ..."OMG SPIFFCAT"! Yeah, it felt that real to me!

I know if it hadn't of been for me taking a bathroom break before I watched the trailior I may have needed a change of pants!

This is just so amazing! And it just in time for my birthday!

Happy Birthday to me..Happy Birthday to me..!!!

Going to install Unreal III on this comp to see how well it runs. New MechWarrior from T&S uses the Unreal III game engine.

They (T&S) are the ones who do the Transformers games.

Check here to determine in your computer is capable of running Unreal Tournament III:

Still going to install it on Vista to see what happens.

If your computer can handle UT III it can probably handle MechWarrior from T&S.

Unreal Tournament III runs very nicely indeed on Vista Ultimate. Used "Run as Asministrator" just in case. Did not even have to run as XP.
I have only about 2/3 the computer capability as the Bird but the game looks great.
That should be an indicator that the Mech game will look great.
I am going to have my special mech pilot cooling suit refurbished. Getting it out of the closet right now:

The developers are thinking about having heat shimmers in the cockpit when you fire lasers and PPC's. In the books, The pilot sits just above the thermonuclear reactor that powers the motors and weapons. The interior is normally hot, but gets REALLY hot in a battle. Refrigerant is circulated in the pilots cooling vest to keep his core temp. down.

Sirs,

You have induced in the MechWarrior community a general state of slobbering, grovelling gratitude for the news about the new Mechwarrior. I installed Unreal Tournament just to make sure I can run the new game.
Hopefully, you will keep the same game modes as MechWarrior 4 that so many of us love. CTF, Battle, Team Battle, etc. Solaris would be lovely.

What are the chances of users having their own servers and will there be a server lobby similar to MekTeks and the old Microsoft lobby?

Another subject: I have some concern about the MW4 downloads. What about key codes. Will the games and expansion packs be unlocked? Will they be modified so that they will run properly on Vista and Windows 7? I have never been able to connect to a server with Vista. Most of us use server url's to log on with XP. The Clan I belong to plays mostly Vengeance.

Thank you,

Travis Burgess

QUOTE (antagonist @ Jul 10 2009, 04:43)
I just have to ask:

[u]Will 3.1 already include widescreen support? Someone mentioned that regarding MP4 at Invasion, methinks.

Also, if it doesn't, will it be compatible with 3.02b in multiplayer?[/u]



MP 3.1, no. MP4 that is a possibility.

Look for MP4 maybe near the end of summer or early fall.

Keep in mind we are just as surprised about all this as all of you. So, we will rush to get a 3.1 release out as soon as possible. Myself I will not be able to work on things this weekend as my father passed away wednesday night, so that is on hold until next week.

Here is what we need to do for 3.1:

1) Need to intergrate the old MW4Mercs.exe with our security layer which also eliminates copy protection. Security dll needs to be modified to work properly with the new .exe we will create for this (don't ask how, it's magic!).
2) Remove requirements of mechpack CDs for those 8 special mechs (which will be available for everyone by default now)
3) Get all the content that is going to be released all nice an organized form and finalize the release structure.

That's the easy stuff. The hard part will be worked on in parallel. This consists of a game launcher which checks our site for updates that are available. We don't want to have people downloading patch files and running them like in the past. It causes too many problems. This launcher will download any updates that we provide and install them automagically. MP4 will be delivered in this format and all additional followups

You will be able to run the game without the launcher, but it will not be able to patch obviously. You will need to register (free) to use the launcher. This way we can get an idea of how many people are playing the game (no it will not be spyware or anything of the sort, I hate it as much as everyone else).

4) Once that is done, we need to test test test this launcher. Once this is released into the wild there is no turning back. So it has to work. It also has to be able to update itself if necessary.
We know 3.02b is stable so there isn't really much to do there, just make sure it works out of the box, but the launcher is an essential component. If we get thousands of new players we need to make it easy for them, and us.
5) Once we get that done, then we create a DVD .iso with everything on it an release on bittorrent and hope it flies.

Time frame? Mid-August is my guess. Depends on how fast step 4 goes.

That's the best we can hope for. Fortunatly we got some clever guys here so we shoudl be able to pull it off.

If we do get alot of players, we can always launch several mekmatch server if its needed, maybe launch can be used toselect which server you want to access for finding/deploying your game servers on.

6) Then get back to work on MP4 and make it as solid as possible.

Once MP4 is released, i am toying with a way to create a mod sdk so people can makethere own mods on top of what we already have, but that will be some way down the road. I know some people in the current community isn't going to like this schedule, but they need to keep in mind this isn't about them any more, but about the whole new community that will hopefully come out of this, much larger and full of noobs. Sorry if some find that offensive but it's the way it has to be.

Regards.
