    So is this the basic MW4, MW4 with the packs, or a modified MW4? I have MW4 with the packs, no need to download it if there isn't any difference.

    The release of MechWarrior 4 Free is a testament to the re-ignited, world-wide interest in the BattleTech/MechWarrior computer games. Within 4 hours of the launch MekTek.net had received more than a 100,000 unique hits from around the globe. As the demand reached 10,000 simultaneously downloads, even the heavy-duty server couldn’t stand up to the demand and it, along with the website, have crashed. Through several reboots the server continues to crash as the demand still remains in the stratosphere.

    I had this prob as well when i downloaded it last night. I had to download the two updates, the seconed one fixed this prob. game works fine, i only played one quick s/p game but all looks good. my main prob now is i have to work out the controles because the last time i played this game was on a ps1. :D

    MTX is quite possibly the worst application I've used, ever.

    I had to uninstall none of the fixes fixed the insert 2nd cd. I was spending way to much time in the registry and trying to use the mtx app which was click and wait 2minutes for a response to warrant playing this.

    It's a real shame though i REALLY wanted to play this :evil:

    Apparently once it starts updating your game, you can get the torrent from its temp folder, and use utorrent to download it. Then open the .mtx file with MTX, and start updating again

    download mechwarrior4mercenaries.51.03.01.0017.to.51.03.01.0018.mtx.torrent and mechwarrior4mercenaries.51.03.01.0018.to.51.03.01.0020.mtx.torrent with utorrent.
    then 'open' them with MTX.
