Hey

So wanted to have a go on MCG with 2 pcs at home on the LAN.

MCG works fine in windows 7 after copying the disk onto the HDD. I can patch it with the 1.8 exe.

But when I try to play multiplayer there is no network option and if i rry to use 'Mech Commander Gold Utility for LAN/BP Harv's MC Launcher' it says "Found no supported games."

Any ideas what I can do?

Also is there any way to get MC2 working without having to mount an iso? I've had PC problems in the past after installing virtual drives.

Not sure about the LAN issue, but here is a guide to install MC2. I don't believe it requires an ISO. http://www.thegameengine.org/mechcommander-2/

Except it says the multiplayer option has been removed...

"In 2006 Microsoft released a modified version of the source code along with most game assets (i.e. everything needed to compile the game without networking support and without all the art) under a Shared Source licence in order to demonstrate its XNA Build system. Source is available from Microsoft's downloads site."

All I need to make a multi-player compatible version is a game folder which is pre-installed from another user and was already used successfully on multi-player like gamreranger. There is another way but this is more complicated I think the version people used her is more compatible to use.
Thanks RizZen, what exactly do you mean about the folders? Do I just go on multiplayer on 1 PC and then copy the folder to the others?

Thanks :)
