Found this tidbit about Veng and BK , re. MekTek rebuild:

"I think I can clarify the Veng+BK issue. They can't be released due to horrible copyprotection, plus the online can't be reverse engineered. HOWEVER, once things have settled down from the free release, I believe MekTek is going to work on stripping the campaigns from them, since everything else is already in Merc. Once they have stripped the campaigns, they will release them with MTX and everyone will be able to play through those campaigns. From what I understand, that's the only real difference left between Merc and Veng+BK."

Some time ago we started playing Venge on Sunday evenings too (SoE server ip = dc7jzb.dyndns.org). On Fridays we usually have a packed SoE Venge server, with majority of players from Europe and about 1/3 from USA. Many of the old players have returned, and it always big fun.

The Sunday Venge thing was meant to "pool our player base together", as Sunday should be better than Friday for ppl on EST time zone. But sorry to say - while Friday venge night on SoE server is a BIG success, there seems to be some lack of interest on Sundays. Well, kudos to Yard who is the only one from WPPC being there almost every weekend!! But what about all the other good ppl from WPPC? Maybe Sunday afternoon (on EST time zone) is not a good time for most of you, or maybe some of you don't like the hla + ffp server settings... dunno.

So by now on Sundays we usually switch to Mercs MP3 and often get a good crowd on our mp3 server. It's not Venge but at least it's Mech, anyway... wink Btw, I still remember the good times when WPPC Mercs mp3 server was up and we had some nice games there on Sunday evenings **giving a broad hint*** grin

What do y'all think?

Heya Frost! Us on Sundays, we can only get on here probably no earlier than 8pm est. We only get one day off a week and Sunday day/after noon is catching up on all the other stuff we been neglecting though out the week. I will try mah best to make a few of the in the day time events on SoE though. Been missing shooting you guys out there. grin Fridays for us are impossible though. We work until about 10pm est and then need couch.......couch.... But on Sunday after noon, I will try to. What guys do you normally get on est time>?

Bummer. I'd like to say I didn't see that coming but, bah! Hope someone can just make a VENGE MOD on Mercs! That seems easy enough! @__@ Like a retro mod so you could play venge or bk in the most updated version of mercs. And free... it would have to be free and you don't need the disk for it. 100% Free ware.. [/dreams]

The latest from Vam, admin for MekTek:

The FREE release will contain the fully working version of MW4 Mercenaries + Microsoft MekPaks + MekTek MekPaks (MP3.1) and new updates will be delivered through a new autopatching mechanism which will include MekPak4 and Vengeance/Black Knight single player. You shall all see soon enough.

(Venge server will have to be done with mech and weapon restrictions)
BTW, the rebuild is fully functional on Vista 32, 64, and Windows 7.

Thx Jack for your reply! On Sundays, we usually play between 9pm and 1am CET, that's 3pm until 7pm EST. Much later isn't possible, as most of us have to get up early on Monday morning for work. Of course I understand that this won't fit...

Hm, after more than 1 week it looks like we're getting no more feedback elsewhere.

We will be on Mercs mp3 on Sundays now. Yard, please could ya tell all the good WPPC ppl that it's big fun too and everybody is welcome! We need more brawlers on mp3 !!

SoE main focus is on arena and city maps like Arena Egypt, Bloodpit, Cityscape, VOS-Chalkdust, guess y'all would like it! wink

Well, it's not Venge but it's Mech too, isnt it? And you wont see the typical annoying poptart stuff on those close-range maps, especially not with 1st view on server.

Hope to cu soon

"Venge-Sunday" update:

Some ppl asked me last Sunday on MP3, whether we could restart playing Venge on Sunday evenings (CET). On Fridays we usually get a packed Venge server, whereas on Sundays there hasn't been enough interest lately. So we played MP3 on Sundays instead of that.

Ok, let's give Venge-Sunday another try, we will switch back to Venge on next Sundays. So come on y'all, let's play Venge!
