"Unofficial Expansion files 10/02"
Tue Nov-25-03 09:07 AM by crowfoot

  

          

*** NEW -- the starred file is new since the last update (09/18). If you add that, you are current as of 10/02

From a fresh install of MC2, this is the order the files should be extracted in. When extracting files you should let everything overwrite previous files.

Browse/Extract to the base MC2 folder (Program Files/Microsoft Games/MechCommander2 or wherever you put it). The extractor will place files into the proper folders if you do that correctly.

Install (extract) in this order:

(1) Unofficial Expansion 1.0
*** (2) Patch 1v2
(3) Carver V (to purchase new 'Mechs there)
(4) CarverV New Start - Player starts with Razorback, Firestarter and Jenner (and 6000 RPs)
(5) Exodus 2.0


**** Warning

These missions are designed to be difficult -- extremely difficult. Salvage and resources are low. The challenge is to complete the mission regardless of your low pilots, 'Mechs, and resources.

there was a missing file in the previous patch. This is the second version of the patch. It fixes some prices on the weapons (they were too expensive).

The first time Magic expanded the game, he added a "fix" that gave all the normal starting pilots back to Carver V campaign and also gave back normal c-bill and RP amounts. Is there something sililar here?

Tell me what file (by filename) you are referring to, and I can tell you if it's still part of the up-to-date files. This recent batch of files was to fix the above noted problem, and to compile a bunch of files into fewer files.

If it was something recent, it's probably still in there.

There is no fix for that. You will have to manualy delete all CV purchase files (in your MC2\data\missions folder) starting from purchase01 to purchase24.

That way you will get all the pilots back but you will loose expansion mechs for purchase.

I seem to remember a fix for that myself...

Okay...I'm a little confused, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I'm really looking forward to playing both the Carver and Exodus campaigns with the new mechs, but it isn't working well for me. I followed the five steps, but I didn't get paid enough to salvage any mechs after the mission. My C-bill rewards for Carver mission 1 were all measured in the 100s, and I started mission 2 with 600 resource points--not enough to call up anything. After I captured several resource buildings in Carver 2, I was able to salvage some mechs on the battlefield--but when I got down to 14000 RPs, I wasn't allowed to call another salvage chopper. It's like the c-bill and resource point settings are off by a factor of 10 or something. Did I miss a step in the install?

that's because they are and the chopper thing is cause you only get like six pilots in the entire carver campaign

Okay...I figured out the "six pilots" thing after I posted here and before I read the response...and the gist I'm getting from reading through the messages here is that if I want to try out Majic's incredible collection of "new" mechs on Carver, I need to do it with the six pilots I'm limited to. Okay, if them's the rules, I'll play within them.

I guess my question then becomes "why do I start with unuseable RPs?" If RPs are earned and spent in increments of 1000, why would I start a mission with only 600? Nothing I do is going to bring that 600 up to a spendable level, so they'll be coming home with me. Why not start with 1000? Or even 0?

Magic has reduced all c-bill/rp values by a factor of 10, so if a mission would normally start you with 6000rp to use, you'd get 600rp using Magic's expansion.

You have to REALLY like playing with short resources because you WILL be playing alot of missions over and over again due to losing equipment to Magic's uber-opponents(opposing 'Mechs, vehicals and pilots are all far better than in MS version of the campaign). Also, because you are short on pilots, you wont be getting some of the stronger 'Mechs that you will need later in the campaign. I didn't play far enough into it to see if you got the extra pilots after mission 17 (when you defend the city) and the one where you rescue Rooster and his pals (I think mission 21). If you get them, it should help you out. You probably do, since you get Steel and Claymore when you are supposed to.

Yeah? what good does 600 RP can do for me? Well at least it can buy me a repair truck to complete the kick-ass missions Magic laid on Exodus. Those darn scimitars are really a pain in the butt to click on.

"Yeah? what good does 600 RP can do for me? Well at least it can buy me a repair truck to complete the kick-ass missions Magic laid on Exodus. Those darn scimitars are really a pain in the butt to click on."

Well, Magic's intent was to significantly increase the difficulty of the missions. I'd say he succeeded. If you win with Magic's version, you kick'd a$$. That level of difficulty is not for everyone (it wasn't for me, for example), but some folks love it.

As to what good 600rp does.....not much, but you still get 10,000 for each resource building you cap. Its just starting values and mission rewards that were reduced.

There is an alternative for you to try.

Use wolfman-x. It is based on MAGIC's great inventory expansions (like mechs, turrets, vehicles) but does use all the original MS warrior and purchasing files. It is just simpler to use and gives more fun unless you like the kick of handling short resources.
You need a clean MS MC2 installation and then Magic's xpack inventory and wolfman-x. The last two can be found on my page.

wolfman-x is easy to install, has additional inventory from other sources, gives you full access to copters and to around 50 semi-professional missions.

check out wolfman's missions and wolfman's forum at

I like the increased difficulty. I played through the original without losing any pilots, and barely even had a Mech drop (except, I think, on the last mission and the Liao Palace mission). I refused to play the original on Elite, though, because I thought it was ridiculous that a Centipede was taking 5 shots from my Bushwacker's PPCs and Autocannons to destroy.

Sudden death is a grim reality in the Successor States of the 31st century

Do these 5 files also contain all the corebrain/AI fixes Magic did that are documented and available at www.dropshipcommand.com/magic?

So I'm on mission two. Salvaged two Urbies. Blew away two more, not to mention the three Firestarters lying around, but I can't salvage any of them. I have 30.6k resource points, but the salvage craft is greyed out. )=

Is that something Magic did? Can I undo it w/o reverting back to base MC2?

What happens if I install just the first two files, the expansion and the patch? Will the AI in the original game play smarter? (I'm not too keen on playing Carver with the "new" pilots because it makes the game hard in a way that's not fun--near invincible Fire Ants? Please.)

Hi,

Noobie here,

Is this still the correct order as at March 2004?

Also, Is it possible to get the new mechs without having a low number of pilots or is it a tradeoff?

Can I get the better ai without the new mechs or fewer pilots? How difficult is the new ai to beat-perfect/undying fire ants like metioned in the post?

Can I install exodus without any other patches?

Hi,

Not sure I understand the first question.

To the second questions: The answer will depend on the campaign that you download and who is doing it.

You get low number of pilots if you are playing Magic's exodus campaign. I think You can play skirmishes (solo missions) and get all the pilots. I am not sure if you get all the pilots with the purchase patch for Carver V. And if you download from Wolfman, you may get extra pilots in some of his solo missions (no campaigns yet... I am waiting for his, by the end of May)

In other words it will depend on the developer.

The third question:
I think the brain patch is still there, also wolfman and Mechlab have some brain patches too. I think the brain patches make the enemy pilots less dumber (they follow blindly the first mech they detect, without caring about the other mechs shooting at them). I have not seen the super fire ants, with the exception of playing at the elite level, and that existed with the original MC2.

On the last question:
The original exodus was done before the new mechs, I am not sure if any website has it. Then magic made his expansion and changed exodus to have the extra mechs. And, I believe the new exodus calls for the new mechs or it will crash if it can not find them. Following patches corrected some issues with the Jenner, so you may want to get that one, and then there was one or two patches that you don't need them to play: changing the cost of the mechs, and tweaking the difficulty to the easier side; exodus is a bit on the harder side compared to Carver V.

Poison or Fish.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm slowly getting a better understanding.

The first question relates to the order for installation. It's also a bit confusing what patches should be applied given the other patches (not mentioned in this thread) that seem to be available. It also relates to my question on the thread:

"New here and need help w/expansions..." that is 3/4 down the front page, that never got answered.

Install (extract) in the order given at the top of this thread. This expansion was not designed to be compatible with any other patch/mod, although you will find that a few people have borrowed Magic's modifications.

Basically, if you want to use any other patches, you need to remove what was changed with this expansion, THEN install the other patch/mod.

This expansion is designed to be Uber-difficult.

Hi,Noobie here,Is this still the correct order as at March 2004?Also, Is it possible to get the new mechs without having a low number of pilots or is it a tradeoff? Can I get the better ai without the new mechs or fewer pilots? How difficult is the new ai to beat-perfect/undying fire ants like metioned in the post?Can I install exodus without any other patches?


Sorry for the late response, I was far avay.

No it is not possible to get new mechs for purchase without having a low number of pilots.

You can go to your mc2\data\missions folder and delete all files from purchas01.FIT to purchase24.FIT.
This way you get all the original purchase files and pilots but you lose new mechs for purchse.

I am sorry to said this Bounty hunter, but what set Magic's work apart, was its thougness. And my hope is that the next one, when it comes, will be as hard and challenging as exodus.

How about this for a novel approach.

Someone host them all on the same location. Sadly, the way things are spread out all over the place makes me a bit dizzy trying to figure out just what the heck to download, what to install/unistall before installing... ect...

OK, for those of you who want more pilots and easier Exodus campaign:

1. Adding more pilots

Go to your MechCommander2\data\missions folder and find files from purchase01.FIT to purchase24.FIT.

Open those files with notepad/wordpad and add pilots in the pilot section.

If you want to add pilot (palerider) for mission 12 you must edit purchase12.FIT. Simply add:

st PilotXX = "pmp_Palerider"

XX is the next number in the pilot list.

Please note that you must add that line (pilot) to all later purchse files.

2. Increasing the amount of starting Cbills

Go to your MechCommander2\data\campaign folder and find file exodus.FIT

Open exodus.FIT with notepad/wordpad and find the line:

l CBills = 150000

(starting 150,000 Cbills)
Change the number to anything you want (add one or two zeroes).

This should make the Exodus campaign much easier.

Magic

This error means my patch is not installed (expansion). You have to install in correct order (above) and please make sure that The path to your MC2 install folder is coprrect.

Since you was able to start mission one you installed Exodus correctly. In order to play Exodus you must install Expansion, it wont work with other mods/patches.

You would have to add all the pilots to all the purchase files.

As far as RP's you would have to open each mission,in the editor, individually and go to ( I believe) Mission/settings to add more resource pts. Or open the mission fit file in windows explorer and add it there.

Well as best as I can tell is that one of your infantryman, in the first mission, brain is not functioning the way it should. This could be because the file is corrupted. The only solution that I know right off hand would be to delete the exodus files and reinstall them. If you knew which infantryman it was you could open the mission up in editor and erase the offender. Otherwise Magic or others will have to give you more advanced advice.

Just a THANK YOU to Magic and DSC for providing these files. Installed just expansion and exp patch. What a difference!

First time I took an Urbanmech on a mission. Usually just sell them and the FireAnts off. But can't afford that anymore. Great job with the hovercraft zipping around.

Been a long time since I have caught myself chanting "Don't blow up! Don't blow up!", after my guys take down a mech. Those who remember trying to get the MadCat in the original MC know what I mean.

Thanks again for making an okay game much, much closer to the Mechwar experience as read in the paperbacks.

I too love the expansion. The thing that really attracted me was the new weapons and 'mechs. It is like MechWarrior 4 in MechCommander 2.

I do not know of any commander who, having enough resources to do the job for real, would not use those resources. Mission 4, I think it is, where you have to rescue and escort the ambulances, you're allowed 85 tons to complete the mission. In the first place, the proper 'mechs have not been provided to give you the possibility of an even 85 tons, so you are required to go with less. Ridiculous. Now, we're faced with a Timberwolf and several other 'mechs which I did not take the time to look over and identify because I was too busy trying to get my ass, and that convoy, out of there as fast as possible.

The very first target for the Clanners is one of the ambulances, which means you cannot complete the mission properly. If you want a playable, and completable, scenario for everyone, not just you, Mister Wizard, rebuild it so you can have, at least, 90-100 tons of 'mechs. Then, once the 'mechs actually meet up with the convoy, have the convoy begin to move out immediately. How dumb.

Well you get that Hunchback at the beginning of the mission.

The only thing you have to do is to salvage it then run to rendesvouz point.

The other two should go after the two mechs positioned east of the pirate base.

Difficult? Yes, but simple (every mission in Exodus v2 have a simple solution).

The first version was the one where you started out with two Fireants and salvaged a Centurion in mission 2 , the mission where three clan mechs(Firemoth, Shadowcat and Cougar B) slug it out with the pirates. At least thats what I remember, my disc shot craps or I would look it up in the game. Nice missions!

In I belive in mission 2 you can salvage a Cougar B and Shadowcat by ignoring the centurion and crossing your fingers and hope the Scat falls out of pirate sensor range and with most of its weapons intact. This will happen about once every 8 or 9 missions or so. So you salvage the Scat and take on the pirates . This is discussed better in this thread earlier I believe or in one of the older threads.

Also if you are really adventuresome you can skip the Hunchie and after taking out the enemy Wolfhound and Hunchback and Firemoth, by the marker, go back and try to salvage a clan mech at the base.

My solution was kind of unique - I took nothing but light mechs - three of them, if memory serves (don't ask how I got three of them - I did not cheat (I was slick on mission 2 or 3, and did something unexpected and quite possibly dumb, but it netted me some lights)) - had one book towards the base, and the other two cross over after some mechs across the ravine (if this is this mission I remember). When I hit the base with my one, the other two where engaging the mechs on the other side - this allowed them to savage one of the mechs (I think I took both out with that set, but I dunna remember). The Hunchback I took and set it to guard the lead convoy vehicle, and the lighter mech acted as rear guard while evryone moved out.

I forgot to meantion having taken the turrt controls, there by prolonging the delay the attacking mechs had until the Falcons could arrive and right them.

I think I also tried to sneak in and salvage one of the mechs they had - I don't think I ever succeeded in that.

By the time they where done beating on each other, the convoy had reached the extraction point (I think there was one more mech sitting in wait there that I had to ax), and my own mechs where not far behind, thus ending the mission.

In some cases, it is wisest to break your forces into two. Or, lets split up, we can do more damage that way.

Salvaging a Clan 'Mech is usually very simple:

1. approach the base with your fastest 'mech
2. when it picks up enemies on sensors, have it lead them away
3. have your other mech (you did bring two; didn't you?) cap the turret if necessary and then choose your prize. Salvage a mech and move it away from any enemies.
4. wait for the mission to end

Voila!

One thing: you have to kill the Hunchie, Javelin and FireMoth as fast as possible. Not a problem if you got the SCat from mission two

Sometimes, there are only one or two beat-up clanners left at the base or they may even still be fighting! Those times I indulge myself and try and kill 'em to get my pilots' skills up (and for fun). If you do this, be sure about the time or you'll miss your salvage opportunity.

I never installed any unofficial expansion files for MC2.

When I install these files and let them overwrite things will it get rid of the default MC2 single player missions and replace them with these new unofficial expansion missions?... or do these expansion files only overwrite old version expansion files?

I don't want to ruin/delete any part of my default game, but I really want to expand it with stuff like this expansion and new missions

Please reply soon, Thanks

Ok, I have just started playing the expansion....but I am already having the time of my life. This is practically a whole new game on, even having to relearn the damage ratios of the weapons. Overall, i love it, and I want to thank you, and anyone else who may have worked on it, for spending the time to create something such as this for people like me to enjoy


Ok, checked out the encyclopedia.....and I am sooo happy. You re-named the (damned) Uller back to its' rightful name of Kit Fox! (my favorite mech from MW2 Merc)

Urbanmech: High-tech assault weapon or target practice?

@ Wolfman
Yeah i know that, but i wanted to know how i can get access to the Meshes and skins that are included in the unoffical Mechpack that Magic has created. Maybe Magic himself can give me a headup. BTW the MC-Reader Software that someone here on the forum created and hosts doesnt work on my machine...
So please help me out on this

Having an issue with the Multiplayer not working between two LAN computers. Crashes on the client everytime, host PC is fine.

Installed MC clean on both PC's, then the Unofficial Expansion, then the patches listed above. Same crash everytime in MP, having to do with this message:

STOP : WeaponHitChunk.build: damage round error
Address : 0x00512C16
Location : Assert()+0x36
File : C:\mc2build\mechcmd2\MCLib\err.cpp(34)

Any ideas, or is this Unofficial Expansion not made for multiplayer?

Hey I installed the first two patches so far, but not the last three. I really like it so far. It feels a lot closer to the "real" Battletech universe with the new tweaks. Before the add on, enemy mechs seemed to blow up way too easily, making the game rather boring. I also like how machine guys actually use ammunition now (perhaps they were energy machine guns in the original MC2).

I'm wondering if there is a more detailed rundown of the changes each file makes to your game. I assume all the modifications are somewhere in the mc2\data directory? If so, maybe you can back up the data directory before installing to avoid having to delete the entire game and reinstall from scratch to try other mods.

Originally I was trying to find a way to just upgrade the AI brain without making too many other tweaks to the game. I really appreciate the increased difficulty, I have a feeling the designers felt MC1 and MCG were too complicated and thus dumbed down the combat system and AI to appeal to casual gamers. My only gripe so far is the lack of resource points for salvaging. It really feels like a waste to leave behind so many dead mechs on the field because you don't have the RPs to salvage them. It feels a little unrealistic to leave so much good hardware behind, but this is mainly a problem built into MC2 unfortunately. I was wondering if it might be possible to increase the cost of repairing to keep the difficulty high, but reduce the cost of salvaging to allow for at least one or two salvages in the field for each mission. I still noticed the AI can get stuck on following one unit around blindly, on Mission 5, but overall the game feels much more balanced. Great work!

Does that patch file fix the sensor bug that turns units invisible?

If I launch a sensor probe that overlaps at all with the sensor readout from one of my own mechs enemies tend to turn invisible on radar, and the battlefield when I am in visual range.

I have to let the units auto defend in order to destroy the units, then their bodies pop back into view for salvage. It's annoying because you can't use called shots when it occurs.

I also noticed that mechs that you salvage in a mission are essentially blind. Their radar doesn't work, and they cannot see enemies even when being shot at. This isn't a problem if you have at least one mech that you started with at the beginning of the mission, as the salvaged mech can use their sight, but especially with the increased difficulty associated with the expansion I find that this situation comes up frequently.

I just wanted to know if there's something I could do to fix this "blindness" issue.

Are you logged in as administrator? If not, then log in as one. Next right click on the file and choose properties. Look to see if the file is set to "READ ONLY". If so, turn that off. Then when you save it you can overwrite the original file.

Why can I only take 100 tons, and when I launch the mission, it says "mission failed" as soon as the game comes on?

It sounds like you have this issue with the original MC2 without any expansion or campaign from other authors, correct?

If you run MC2 on the machine the first time it happend a lot before that people waited for a while but became impatient and rebootet.
For some reason it can take severl minutes until a simple dark screen turns into the start screen. Make sure you gave it enough time and wait for 5 real long minutes. Give it a try

I can't tell for Magic's expansion for sure.
If you install the original MC2 + wolfman-x (rev35) on each computer you definitely can play multiplayer in your network with all new mechs including aircrafts and get plemnty of new multiplayer maps included already.

I guess Magic's expansion loaded on top of thhe original MC2 will allow multiplayer gaming as well.

Multiplayer does not work for any MC2 version that has been freshly compiled from the source code (like all my MC2X versions) because the source cade does not include important multiplayer code.

Be aware that some downloads try to tell you that you download the original MC2 for free. If it is a hack it is illegal. It might be just a fresh compilation of the source code without changes or additions. Then it is worthless because you get less than the original game and can not use it for multiplayer either.

Know what you download and install

Interesting...I have the game itself (bought it a long time ago) but what I did was that i created an image of the game with Alcohol in one computer and the other one uses the CD. Does this affect it at all?

Magic's is only for single player, I just found out. Gonna try yours Wolf,

MechWarrior FTW!!!!!!

PS: hope that MW 5 that Smith and Tinker are working on goes as planned cus its gonna be sick
