xx What you need for Mercs MP3b
« Thread started on: Sep 30th, 2007, 9:18pm »

*Edit* If you are using Windows VISTA you must do this as well as everything else I know it says it is for Venge but it is the same idea for both Venge and Mercs

<S> folks, Well many folks are venturing out there beyond our servers of Pr1. We just checked out MP3b tonight and had a great time on Smoke Jagure's Server. (very much like our servers, has beer commands, no cussin, ect) So if anyone out there is wondering what they will need for the headach MP3b patches, heres what to do.

Assuming that you already have Mercs Pr1 installed, go to the Mercs folder "programfiles/microsoft games/mechwarrior4 mercenaries" and RE NAME the Mercenaries file to Mercs Pr1. And leave it be. You can always play that version. Now install mercs again by putting in disk one and installing, then disk 2 and blah blah blah. Ok after that, it would be a good idea to copy and paste these files.

paste them into a folder on your desk top, just incase you get errors. Its good to do this now with a fresh install of mercs. You can't take your files from pr1 patched with the hi def patch. It wont work.

Now with your fresh install, your going to need the Point Release 1 Patch Install it, then run this. Mercs MP3a Patch and install it. It will take a LONG time. Don't worry, this is normal. After that, you need is this to get to the newest version. Mercs MP3b Patch Then you'll need the mercs mektek server patch. Mektek Server Heres what it is:

Then you'll need the maps they play.

MWL Map pak1

MWL Map pak2

MWL Map pak3

MWL Map pak4 Venge and BK maps

Ok I think thats it, I'm making this a sticky so everyone can see it fer everz. Thanks.

Also..if ya want PRI and MP3.......

then here's a repost

In order to be able to run both PR1 and MP3.02b versions, you need to have multiple installations.

Mercs Multiple Version Installation

In order to have multiple installs of Mercs you must have at least 3 GB of free Hard disk space available.

1. Right click Start and select Explore to open Windows Explorer.
2. Select the same HD that Mercs is installed to.
3. Click File, click New, and then click Folder.
4. Name the new folder MP3
5. Browse to the Program Files/Microsoft Games/Mercenaries Folder and select it so that the contents appear in the right pane.
6. Click Edit and then Select All.
7. Click Edit and then Copy.
8. Browse back to the MP3 folder and select it to open it.
9. Click Edit and then click Paste to copy the contents of the Mercs folder into the new folder.
10. Locate the MW4Mercs executable file, right click it, and select Create Shortcut.
11. Right click the Shortcut and choose rename. Name the shortcut Merc PR1.

If you want to run different versions without running the autoconfig each time, Right-Click the shortcut to your Mercs installation and select Properties. Next, select the "Shortcut" tab if it is not already selected. Then, find the "Target" text box. At the end of the line (after the quote mark) add a space and then the following line: -noautoconfig

It’ll look like this: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\MechwarriorMercenaries\MW4Mercs.exe" -noautoconfig

You'll need to add the -noautoconfig to both Mercs shortcuts.

13. Drag the new shortcut to your desktop.
14. Run the new shortcut and verify that the installation works.

You are now ready to patch to MP3.02b on your MP3 folder.

Bump for Skelly.

Forgot to mention, when installing with Vista.. (ew) Right click each patch icon and hit "install as admin"

That should do it.
