Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries Download
« on: June 12, 2016, 02:08:56 PM »
See below, game files are all there along with all Mektek patches. Installation is straight forward as well for the most part.
Jimmy helped me install it (not calling you out but if you remember the exact path that would be helpful maybe for others)

Installation steps:

1)  Download file
2)  Extract to a suitable folder
3)  Install the MTXExtractor tool
4)  Run the extractor from desktop
5)  Click Browse
6)  use the file browser to find the folder you extracted the files to
7)  select mechwarrior4mercenaries.all.to.51.03.01.0028.mtx and click open
8)  A new window will pop up, click browse and select where you want to install to
9)  When selected click on start.
10) Repeat steps 5 to 9 for mechwarrior4mercenaries.51.03.01.0028.to.51.03.01.0029.mtx
11) Repeat steps 5 to 9 for mechwarrior4mercenaries.51.03.01.0029.to.51.03.01.0030.mtx
12) Extract the MW4 hotfixes file
13) Run the first hotfix (mekpak31.0030a(0030)-hotfix)
14) click browse and locate the folder where you have MW4 installed, then click apply
15) Repeat this for the next two hotfixes (mekpak31.0030b(0030x)-hotfix2 then mekpak31.0030c(0030x)-hotfix3)

You should then be able to play MW4 mercenaries. Just as long as you payed good attention to the numbers of the files and done them in the right order. Past that, the config tool and .ini edits may need to be used to change a few settings around to get it looking at it's best.

Thanks for posting this!

Hoping it works. Has anyone gotten it to work on Windows 7 & above? My hard copy version just opens a black screen briefly then closes.  :(

The physical copy of the game will refuse to work on any modern machine. However this downloaded version is the full game with the added features of the MEKTEK patches and works on win 7 64-bit. Not too sure about win 10 as i don't have it though.

"Confirmed that it works on Windows 10." How did you get it to work. I have been trying for a few days.
