    Just had a quick look, nothing under a ping of 250 :(

    Think i'll just wait it out until something more concrete is announced.

    i think MWLL forums are a great place ....but ...so is playing it...
    for a beta ...5 maps , 12+ mechs with 4 variants of each , 1 hover tank / 4 variants of it ...6+ tanks with varaints of them as well , Aero and VTOL planes ,,and weapon upgrades for your Battle Armor / Elemental ( default starting class , every starts off in armour)
    ive been playing MW and BT stuff since 1989 ..and this MOD ..and a BETA at that ...craps all over any mechwarroir game every made .... you can repair mechs...re arm them ...buy stuff ..if your mech has free tonnage...you can buy extra ammo for your fav weapon , so you can waltz into battle and thump things into pulp.
    i cant really give this mod words of greatness..
    its a sim ..so NO 3rd person full stop , the DEVS haave stated they will never impliment it...its Mechwarroir ..not mechassault (crappy Xbox rippoff)
    the mechs take a bit to learn and the Vtols and Planes even more so ...so..you dont have chumps sky spamming ..
    or jumping onto a mech as battle armor and shooting down on its head...until eaither you kill the pilot...or hes budd shoots you off hes mates mech ...is the best giggles ....its very well polished..
    it has its moments..of WTF..and crashes..but for a 3 year MOD Beta ..its the mechwarroir game ive always wanted.
    go read the forums , ppl cant thank the mod team enough ....ive canceld my WoW account , and have told my local modern warfare 2 friends and fellow gamers..im retiring.
    LONG LIVE MWLL

    p.s. death to Freebirth scum.

    As long as you have access to the server via RDP etc, it shouldn't be much a of a problem

    well i thought about it ...since i canceld WoW account ..i could spend tht money to host a small 8v8 (16 player) perth Server ...
    but im not sure how many perthies would play ...or wht the connection would be like for SA and eastern states ppl.
    i could go for a srver in SA..but..why should i play with a bad ping (^_^)

    Well I was getting around 100ms (which is pretty normal for me - range between 70-120 on most Australian servers) in the server you were hosting and I'm in south east of SA.

    <Crck>TOGgers, we are go!<Crck>

    Mektek has just announced that Microsoft has finally given the all clear to release Mechwarrior 4, after nearly a year since the original announcement. Hopefully we'll get some details up soon on how we can download it.

    So... which one of you is going to be my victim? :p

    MekTek.net Development - News - Dare we say it? Free release of Mechwarrior4 cleared for launch

    (Source - AusGamers)


    [Edit]
    PS - Just a reminder, this is the previous release Mechwarrior 4 being given out for free, not the new Mechwarrior Reloaded (TM by me! haha).

    Mechwarrior 4 has been released, go get it :)
    http://www.mektek.net/projects/mw4/

    Their distribution software is substandard, downloading at 5KB and upload 95Kb (saturation my bandwidth) and no matter what limit I set in network options it does not apply. Will wait till either they fix their software or an alternative download method is available.
