Thoughts on the new hatchetman design?
>>20872125Reminds me of Cyborg Justice
I've been playing BTA 3062 for the past couple weeks, how is it compared to Roguetech? Am I missing out on much, should I start over in that?
>>20872125Hmmm, not sure I liked the angled blade of the hatchet, I think I prefer the straight edge.
>>20873824>Roguetech?Don't bother if you don't have a beefy enough rig. Anything less than 32gb of ram will just slow your game down.
How do we make Battle Armor relevant again?
>>20876588Play Alpha Strike?
I wish more of the novels were scanned, some good illustrations to be found. Nice Laubenstein Warhawk.
I still need more Stormcrows.
>>20876639This, Alpha Strike needs love and every wargame besides 40k and BT classic is dying
So...is Mechwarrior 5 worth buying? I've heard some folk say yes, others say no. Should I just wait for a sale, or seek better?
>>20885969It depends on what you want.I play it on the PS4 and I like it but... The story is bland and just sucks. If you do get it, get the Heroes of the Inner Sphere DLC, it's what the game should have been and then it becomes an much more palatable open-ended game. I haven't played played the Kestral Lancers DLC but others say it's excellent but over too quick. MW5 won't knock your socks off, some of the customisation is a bit weird (apparently it's like MWO [I haven't played that either] but with hardpoint size as well as type, so you can't just grab a Centurion and mount an AC/20 on it straight away, which is a shame). But I like it. If you can get it cheap, it's definitely worth it.The engineer character is awful and you need never go to the mech bay unless they tell you to specificially, you can do everything from the console on the bridge. To be honest, the entire interior of the dropship is pointless.I'd give it 7/10 with the Heroes DLC, probably 5-6/10 without.If you're on the PC, apparently there are a number of mods which improve lots of things too.
>>20886026More like 'it's a badly made game which mods make acceptable', but it's the only MW game in town since 2002(outside of Living Legends and you-know-what)
>>20886054Had to look up Living Legends and...shame the only active servers are in another country. neat idea though.
>>20886498ran by furries and they made a bunch of really really autistic choices
>>20886535incredible. the one that stuck out to me was "Mechlab doesn't belong in a multiplayer title" and I just kinda rolled my eyes.starved for content, so I'll take whatever I can get, even if it means resorting to Steam Early Access. Speaking of, I feel like Mech Merc Company might be worth keeping an eye on.
>>20876418I can't imagine this getting much slower, I'll hold off.>>20886590>mech merc companyThe demo seemed a little rough, and it hasn't updated in almost a year, I hope it turns out well.
I wish we could just go back to mw4 to be honest
>>20890401I hope so too. We live in fucked up times, so I'm not surprised an Indie Dev is in bad places.
Sharing this here because the faggots at /btg/ forgot to add to the pastebin therehttps://drive.google.com/file/d/11mvMqEq_TZ43VBT4t5x3g-vfvVzrC_yt/viewMechwarrior 2 + mercs, fully patched and working out of box, unlike the portable version
>>20891615Thanks anon.Do you have Mechwarrior 3 as well? I can't seem to install my copy anymore.
>>20891732Mech3 link is dead
>>20868423How to spot butthurt clanners that got comstar'd in all the holes.
>>20891732I remember going through a 17 step process to get it to work on win10
why can't we have kits like gunpla for BattleTech
>>20900364Because Catalyst Games can't into business.
>>20900364Because Gunpla is for manchildren who buys funko and calls themselves "mecha and geeky" fans>picis accurate til this day
>>20900623>Because Gunpla is for manchildrenIf that's the case, what does that makes us?
>>20900552CGL just rents a board game license from TOPPS, blame Jordan for dismembering FASA, or TOPPS for not giving a shit about toys and models.
>>20900623You might actually be the least self-aware human being I've encountered in the last decade.
>>20900364The day one of their dudes shakes hands with the fellas at Bandai, will be a day many dorks part with their money.I'll be one of them
>>20886590They had to scrap the mechlab because of PGI lawyers
>>20886054Living Legends is barely functional and outright shit. The only thing its got going on is a combine arms feel.But beyond that god no its awful.
Can I equip the melee weapons on anything with hands in the new dlc for mw5? If they're attached to specific variants I'll understand but I'll also skip it.
>>20915016Only the new Mech variants
>>20927335Where'd you find that image?
>>20927993Surprised you didn't have those scans already Kasperl. Then again, you are still posting that >>20927184 tiny Stormcrow pic.
>another roguetech update that breaks savesfug i just like to load it up now and then and play a round. restarting sucks
On the subject, does anyone have the Battletech Japan redrawn mech art?
>>20928160and the resthttps://fondationdraco.fr/2018/03/29/battletech-ledition-japonaise-la-saga-argenta-asholeka/https://fondationdraco.fr/2019/12/07/battletech-ledition-japonaise-decision-at-thunder-rift/https://fondationdraco.fr/2019/12/07/battletech-ledition-japonaise-le-regiment-des-voyous-replays/https://fondationdraco.fr/2018/04/22/battletech-ledition-japonaise-le-regiment-des-voyous-romans/https://fondationdraco.fr/2018/08/07/battletech-ledition-japonaise-mechwarrior/https://fondationdraco.fr/2018/08/08/battletech-ledition-japonaise-tamar/Big thanks to the french for acquiring these.>>20929573Here you gohttp://www.gearsonline.net/series/battletech/mecha/https://www.sarna.net/files/media/images/japanese/
>>20929670i think japan is using the new designs
>>20929681Maybe, but mechforce JP isn't what it used to be and if they are playing, they're probably using standees of the old jap designs due to some west designs remaining like the shadow hawk.
>>20928160I'd stumbled on their page for the Tamar pact stuff but I wasn't aware they had more. Should of poked around more.>>20928265Technically I have both I was just in a hurry on my way out the door. Perhaps I need to prune my Stormcrow folder a bit.
>>20900364Closest thing we have atm is 3D printable stuff.
>>20891732Copy the disc into a folder. Get dgvoodoo and drop the dx files and glide files into mw3 folderRun dgvoodoo to set what res you want, load game Should work. I’m phoneposting and can’t remember if you need to set compatibility options but I’ll come check back later
>>20886590>>20890401Merc Mech Company is dead in the water until the solo dev can turn game development into a full time job.
>>20936029Well there were these weird kits out of Russia.https://souldark.ru/product/war_robots_05-1/
>>20872125I liked the HBS version more
>>20936554Man, needing a wrapper to run a DX game from 1999 is so sad.
Found in the the new MechWarrior: Online Crusader cockpit
>>20943805My favorite is still the floppy drive in the cougar.
>>20886590I dislike a lot of their decisions but the logic behind that one is strong and sound. Giving players a set of premade units to play with is a lot easier to balance than a full customisation system with millions of variables, just look at the current MWO meta. Frankly I think they could cut the number of variants for every unit in half and players would still have more than enough to play around with.
>>20947389>Toy soldier for scale
>>20936912Fuck is this mug?
>>20949332My Pappy went to the U.S.S. Midway over the summer and brought this mug back for me from the gift shop as a souvenir.
>>20949384>B I G C H UG
>>20954014This is the dumbest thing I have seen today. Do people actually think CGL controls any part of the BT IP?
>>20955094I don't even know if there's any ONE person or party in charge of the Battletech IP right now. Last it was explained to me there at least four parties involved.
>>20872125they should put meleeing in mwo alreadythe lazy jews
>>20893774Praise Blake and pay your cable bill.
>>20949384Looks like a cup Patton wants to drink with
>>20959300So anyone else think the CI battle armor look like Cobra Commander's battle armor a little?
>what mech would char use?Can someone redpill me on BattleTech (2018)?
>>20959564Battletech (2018) is fun but also runs remarkably poorly. Char would use a charger.
>>20959564Here is the canon, anon.
>>20959564It’s pretty great, like the tabletop but good Char canonically has a Battlemastee but he would use the Hussar because it’s the fastest
>>20955094Define “control” here
>>20970725What do you use for panel lining?
GAS GAS GAS
>>20971581Not my handy work. I'm not nearly that good yet. It could be proper panel lining or a thin wash.
