Torrent File =

Full Install Mech Warrior 4 Mercenaries patched to .21


With the Free Release of Mech Warrior Mercenaries, obviously - many people want it. However MTX which was released by mektek is prone to problems. (sorry mektek defense force) Some people get very lucky with it. I my self have had great luck one day only to have the thing crash and crash the next while trying to get a 50 meg patch. This has prompted people to use other programs to get these patches. Problem is most people don't use torrent programs much and have no idea how or what they are used for. With the help of an unlikely source, I got mercs patched to .21 easily and with in a few minutes. I was so tickled with this fact that I've tried to help others over come their torrent fears. Please jump in the conversation folks, srsly.

So here are some of the other programs you can use to get mercs.

My take on this, I vote for uTorrent. It only takes up one meg of hard drive space and doesn't slow the pc down. I've used bit torrent before and had the thing crash and go to the blue screen of death more than a few times.

What do you guys think?


*Disclaimer*, although most torrents are used to share illegal movies/music, the files in question are 100% legal and are distributed by Mektek for free.

I had to vote for MTX, I have very little issues with it and I realize that once the bugs are worked out, it will be the easiest way to get updates and patches so everyone is on the same version.

If you remember the number one biggest complaint about MP3.02 was the installation process.

MTX will solve that.

I would remind those who use torrent clients (Limewire, Utorrent, etc....) these services are notorious for being the easiest way for viruses to get on your system. So if you decide to use the torrent method (which may be the easiest way to patch up until MTX is released in a stable way)

Listen to the man! These programs ARE bad at getting crud into your machine. Always have your av programs updated and scan often. (Just not during MW) lol
