MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries 3.1 is FREE and works with ALL VERSIONS OF WINDOWS (xp, vista, 7/32bit & 7/64bit) ALL. It is spyware free and virus free with a huge online community. There are three ways to install this game:


#1) SIMPLE DOWNLOAD WITH MXC!
http://code.google.com/p/mechwarrior-xc/downloads/detail?name=MXC-Setup-0.51.exe

* downloads MW4 and installs it automatically (using MTX-Extract)
* downloads MW4 Patches and installs them automatically - NO extra torrent software neccessary
* downloads Evilbot and installs it automatically
* Map overview that shows which maps you have installed and
* Shows what maps you could install
* Ability to download maps / map packs and install them automatically
* Ability to display infos about maps (if available)
* Can launch MW4 as game, dedi server and evilbot
* Can submit the Public IP of a gameserver to a public list
* Ability to check mekmatch and autoinstall the currently played map
* Chat



#2) MTX Install

Lets get to it! you need a simple list of what you need to do and when to do it. Thats cool! NP. There are some things you should be made aware of first though - namely MTX is the best way to install this game and most antivirus software programs might flag mercs after or before as a virus. Rest assured that MTX has been tested and it is 100% safe for use as with everything it downloads. So just make sure your antivirus software knows that program is ok and don't let it delete it. That said. Install MTX ->

http://www.mektek.net/downloads/mtx/beta/SetupMTX1.0.3.5.exe

Oh hey I found a professional walkthru by bob ross. Awesome. Copy pasta time! At the time of this writing, v.1.0.3.5 is the current version of MTX - It may appear differently when you download

(if that didn't download for you click here and look for "MTX Client Download
The MTX Client ensures all software released by MekTek.net is up to date.
Latest Download (v.1.0.3.5)"
http://www.mektek.net/index.php/home/articles/mechwarrior4-mercenaries-downloads-r1204 )




Run the installer.
Due to conflicts with certain anti-virus suites (Most notably Norton and McAfee, it is recommended that you temporarily disable the AV during installation. After installation of MTX and MW4Mercs is complete, you will want to make an AV exceptions for the MW4Mercs.exe file and re-enable your AV. At the time of this writing, Mektek is reported to be working with AV Vendors to alleviate this issue.



Once the installation is complete, launch the MTX software. You won't see anything appear on the screen, but the MTX icon should appear in your System Tray (Bottom Right corner of the screen near the clock.)

Double-Click or Right Click > Restore on the MTX icon in the System Tray. It may take a moment for the application to display.

Once the window is open you might see a message stating "Our servers are under heavy load! Web page viewing in MTX is disabled" - This is normal behavior, Click on the "Games Available" tab at the top.

The "Games Available" tab is broken down into 3 sections: Installed Games, Games You Can Install, and Update Status.

Under the "Games You Can Install" section, Right-Click on "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" then Click "Install Game".

The download is rather large and can take a while. I'm using a 6MB cable connection and usually see times between 15-30 minutes when downloading the main game. If the "Download Speed" field shows a very low number after 2 or 3 minutes then refer to the following page for network troubleshooting: http://www.mektek.net/forums/user/4601-nano/page__tab__aboutme

Once the game is installed, you will have the basic full install of Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.

At the time of this writing, the current full install is 51.03.01.0030 - This number may change in the future

The final step in the installation process will be to update to the current release. To update Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries, again go to the "Games Available" tab in MTX. You will see "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" listed in the "Installed Games" section. Right-Click on "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" and Click "Check for Updates".

The updates should proceed in order one after the other. Watch the status field in the "Update Status" section to monitor the progress of the installation. There may be a brief pause between one update and the next.

If the updates do not automatically continue installing, then you will need to manually Right-Click on "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" then Click "Check for Updates" to install each individual update.

You can find the most recent version's version number by referring to the highest available patch number on the following page: MekTek Downloads -- The most recent version should be the topmost link under the section "Patches Download Via Torrent Client" and is often shown with a yellow "New" next to it. Since you are installing via MTX you don't need to download from this page, just use it as a reference.

Once the updates have finished, you can launch Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries by Right-Clicking on "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" on the "Games Available" tab in MTX and Clicking "Launch Game".

In some environments a UAC exception will need to be setup for MW4Mercs.exe and/or MW4Mercs.exe will need to be set to "Run as Administrator"

The following steps assume you want to play a multiplayer game. It also assumes that you are not using dial-up. You can use dial-up, but since I have never used it I won't go into detail on the setup process.



After the intro videos are finished, Click "Multiplayer" from the Main Menu.

You will need to setup your connection by Clicking the "New" button.
The Connection Wizard may launch automatically if there is no connection information already entered.

Select the "Yes, I am on a LAN or a dial-up connection." option and Click "Next".

Select your "Connection Type"



IMPORTANT:


You will want to select the speed closest to your actual connection speed, but not higher than your connection speed. If you have a 1000mb connection you will want to select the 768 option instead of the 1500. For more information Refer to this post-
http://www.mektek.net/forums/topic/166925-how-to-install-update-and-play-mw4mercs/page__p__1302902#entry1302902 .

Click "Next"

Select the "MekMatch" option and click "Next"

Give your connection a "Connection Name" then Click "Done"

You should now be on the main Multiplayer menu - Click the "MekMatch Servers" button on the right side.

You should have a list pull up containing the following server zones: Liao, Davion, Marik, Steiner, Kurita

Double-click one of the zones (Generally Kurita)

Locate a server that you wish to join and Double-click the server's name.

Once you are in the server, Click on the top Drop-Down next to your name and Select your Mech's Chassis.

Next, Select the variant that you wish to use in the bottom drop-Down box.

If this is a team game, Select the Team you wish to join from the Team drop-down box.

When you are read to launch, Click the green "O" and it will change to a Check-mark.


If you've gone this far, then you are already playing Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries.

If you ran into trouble along the way or have basic game play questions, refer to the following links:


http://www.mektek.net/forums/index.php?showuser=4601



BUT lets take it one step at a time. Download MTX and install the game first. Then update it till it says 3.1.00.00.30


if MTX doesn't work for you then we will do something different... but for now, try this and this only... but if not...


#3) Files to load MW4 Mercenaries Without MTX Downloader/Patch Utility - Torrent

Stickied this due to the number of times this has appeared as requests:

I have not validated all of this, mainly because MTX has always worked fine for me......

***Massive Edit in this post***\
(Edit on 6-19-11)
(re edit on 7-18-11)
NEW updated MXC -
http://code.google.com/p/mechwarrior-xc/downloads/detail?name=MXC-Setup-0.51.exe
And help thread -
http://www.mektek.net/forums/topic/182598-mxc-release-candidate/page__pid__1336127#entry1336127

Now there are 3 ways to install this game. MXC, MTX and Torrents. MXC is by far THE BEST WAY TO INSTALL IT. If for what ever reason you can't use MXC then use MTX... MTX is sort of buggy for some people so good luck with it. And then there are the torrents if all else has failed. Try MXC first though. Srsly.


Thanks Tailgunner for making MXC! FANTASTIC program!

Hey people, I just had to do a complete re-install of Mercs from scratch. I tried to have two separate installs of MP 3.1 in my PC at the same time (my primary install was via the MTX down loader program - the latest version, which always worked OK. The second was a test version of MP 3.1... 021 - which is a few versions ago). This combination messed up my MTX updates (I could not update via MTX anymore)
To make a long story short - if you have only used the MTX down loader ti install and update MP 3.1 - use it (you should be fine). If you had used the torrents that Yardbird has listed (using the MekTek torrent MTX Extractor) or both - use only the MTX Extractor.

Thanks D-Day! Sorry to hear about the headach. Here is something that is working great for me - (My mtx doesn't work on this machine... no matter how many times I re-install just mtx) My wifes pc installs the game perfectly with MTX, I update her game and then use a 4 gig flash drive and dump the entire .....programfiles\metkek.net\MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries\ I then make the exact file name on my pc and dump the file in. All I have to do is plug in my variants and pilot info. My long story short, if you get this version working - I'd back it up on a flash drive or even burn it to a dvd! Just in case something like this happens again you have a nice back up. Good to know you can do that with the game.
The server PC has two copies of the current game as well. One to play and one to host in. It runs very well like this and all I have to do is update one of them when a new patch comes out and just copy it 2 more times. Maybe I'm doing it the long way but this is actually a short cut for me! X_x
