...if you think you have it installed correctly...there is a sure fire way to validate the install....this may seem strange and spooky...but do this and this will tell me a lot about you problem and we can zero in on the issue...


Look in your MW folder for this file md5chk.bat and launch it....then copy/pasta all the info back to this thread...

the path to the file is something like this:

C:\Program Files\mektek.net\MTX\Mechwarrior Mercenaries - Mektek Mekpak.md5chk.bat


Let it run and then copy the data and post it here...

We can look at your check sums and see a few things like what version you are at..as well as all the files being installed correctly...here is the brief check sum for v 0030a

# MP3.1 Release
# 51.03.01.0030a
------------------------
7deaa80ad705790da7048a3d62c62bbd *mw4mercs.exe
5b35d4eeaeaab6afe6e1eff0fcadd481 *MW4Ed2.exe
------------------------
8532f388eebc892958b78ed964f77cca *core.mw4
e8b4d69a2f640209764e9158a9d77568 *props.mw4
acb94af7ce8df81030993f0bfd40309b *skies.mw4
ad9b7de3b9c0d4d89052631e77735aa3 *textures.mw4


and here is v0030b

# MP3.1 Release
# 51.03.01.0030b
------------------------
cce4854d3c42c71c823ecc28cd8ca60b *MW4Mercs.exe
5b35d4eeaeaab6afe6e1eff0fcadd481 *MW4Ed2.exe
------------------------
8532f388eebc892958b78ed964f77cca *core.mw4
e8b4d69a2f640209764e9158a9d77568 *props.mw4
ad9b7de3b9c0d4d89052631e77735aa3 *textures.mw4



If your check sums are different than these...either you are not fully pacthed up..or have a bad install...


OH...btw....toss out your old CD's....all installs must be done via mektek now...if you installed from CD..it won't ever work...


POST YOUR CHECKSUM BRO!

Hmmm..ok..I will work on that tonite after work. After practically doing EVERYTHING I could find to try and get the problem fixed, I tried to reapply the Hotfix patches, thinking they didnt install for some reason. They patched, but when I tried to launch the game from MTX, an error message a mile long came back, and it wont launch now.

I think that I need to uninstall the patches, but dont know the path or how to get to them. It appears that it "double patched" or something, causing an additional glitch.

Anybody know how to find the path to take it out? I think that this needs to be done first before I do anything else...

Should be backups of all the files that were updated... otherwise you'll have to start over.... sounds bad but with mtx it isn't too difficult. Hey, have you tried to install this game on another pc yet? I mentioned earlier that you should use another pc and install mtx on it and see if the game gets updated and would work.... then you can use a flash drive with at least 2 gigs free on it and just dump the whole path - C:\Program Files (x86)\mektek.net\Mechwarrior Mercenaries - Mektek Mekpak onto another pc and make the same file path. This is really easy and lets you try a second time to get mtx working. You could install this game on another pc and simply walk by and push "update" every so often and it may work.

Worth a try and good luck... also even if the game doesn't start you should copy and paste that info Yard was talking about. Help us better understand what the problem is.

Good luck -

OK...


You have a bad install!

The check sums should be as follows:

daa53f30f1800b6fb97c878b9a9e12e7 *MW4Mercs.exe
5b35d4eeaeaab6afe6e1eff0fcadd481 *MW4Ed2.exe
------------------------
8532f388eebc892958b78ed964f77cca *core.mw4

ba3b3c22dd01b8c7e576af391f98abe4 *skies.mw4
ad9b7de3b9c0d4d89052631e77735aa3 *textures.mw4


My suggestion is to delete the entire Mercs folder and reinstall fresh....a bit of a pain...but the quickest way to the solution.

I am suspecting one of the patches did not install to the correct path...so when installing the game and patches..make sure and use the default path and double check it before each patch.

ok...So....Dont delete MTX right? If I delete the game files, do I do it FROM MTX? I see there is an option to uninstall Mercs if I right click on the game and choose uninstall from MTX.

Or should I unistall from the control panel otions"add delete programs" thingy?

There is no reason to uninstall MTX...just the game....you can do it via MTX i believe...

Ra, MTX is a distribution platform, much like Itunes or Steam. The mtx program merely unpacks and launches programs, the actual program and/or game files are separate from the MTX platform, much as music files are separate entities from the Itunes music player.

The options you will want to look at are under the "Games Available" tab at the top of the MTX window.

To uninstall a game within the MTX launcher, simply right click on the game in the "installed games" menu.

To reinstall the game after uninstalling it, right click on the game under "games you can install" and hit install.

Heres the option you want boss, it'll probably say "online mode" instead of offline mode though.

YES, uninstall MTX if thats the message you get. SAME EXACT THING happened to me! Thats why I can't use MTX on my pc! 2 Options - one - uninstall mtx and just go to the mercs directory and delete the file. Reboot and install MTX and try again. If THIS fails then -two- use another pc that you have no interest in playing the game on and try to install mtx and the game. See if the game works on that pc THEN drop the whole game file into a flash drive or DVD and take it to the pc that you want to play on. This is what I do and the only time I have to do anything is when an update comes out. Then I just go back to the main pc that it was downloaded on and update THAT game... then take the whole install again to the other pc. This has never failed me to this day.

This is just my opinion of what helps me though.. keep trying!

Hope this helps and DANG YOUR CLOSE!!
