The best retro rts mech game ever made.

Lets play Mech Commander Gold (Original Missions Review)

How to "install & play" MCG on windows 10 video from YouTube:
Youtube Video - How to install MCG on Win10
How to play Mech Commander on Windows platforms - explained by RizZ




Game Original Disk/ISO Download as freeware:
--- Download Link 1 ---
The Game Engine]Site: The Game Engine
--- Download Link 2 ---
Site: Old-Games com
--- Download Link 3 ---
Site: Gamestand Net
--- Download Link 4 ---
Site: German MCG Fanpage
In order to proper run game it is recommended not to use a cracked version of exe file.
So to run MCG downloading the original ISO is the first step. After downloading just mount
that ISO file in a virtual drive or burn ISO on a disk if you like. Important to know is that
these days you only need it to start and run the game, NOT TO INSTALL IT





MCG Original Game Folder modified for in-game high resolutions:
--- Download Original gamefolder ---
Site: moddb com
After successfully burning the original ISO or mounting it in a virtual drive you should download this *.7z file which you can open with any *.zip opener like winzip or better (freeware) winrar. In it you find a fully installed vanilla version of the original game including
- high resolution patch
- patch 1.8
- editor extender patch (not important unless you can only use it while having it manually installed on your computer which is nearly impossible with newer systems, therefore a virtual machine emulating win98/winXP is needed).
After downloading and unzipping it put game folder in ur personal game directory and start game using its exe files while original ISO is mounted or disk is used to start cause exe files need disk to start game.

To install ultimate campaign place the content of (my MCG ULTIMATE Mod download below) ROOT folder in this game folder. Start game like described above with ISO and enjoy playing 4 campaigns as a one with more missions, pilots and much more.




MCG RizZen´s ULTIMATE CAMPAIGN MERGE:
Mech Commander Gold - Ultimate Campaign Mod

--- Direct Download ---
Download my major campaign merge and play 60 missions in ONE CAMPAIGN. Play the longest MCG CAMPAIGN EVER!
- 120 playable Missions
- 2 campaigns (overriding Original & Expansion)
- 20 new warriors
- the longest MCG Soloplay Campaigns ever made
- new artwork
- updates will be available





All User campaigns as standalone campaigns:
1. Exodus & Turncoat user campaigns built on high res original
2. X-Ray & DSC Raid user campaigns built on high res original
3. Xenocide & Bengal user campaigns built on high res original
It's same like original high res game folder above. The difference is that the original and expansion campaigns are overridden by user made campaigns showing a complete different storyline. After downloading and unzipping just use the exe files in this game folder to start game.

My Ultimate Mod contains all of these campaigns together as merged major campaign. U can play them seperated or challenge a journey on it, your choice.

Notice! You can have all versions similar in different game directories, like example:
C:\Urgamefolder\MCG Ultimate\ (Original with RizZen´s Ultimate MCG Mod)
C:\Urgamefolder\MCG Original\
C:\Urgamefolder\MCG Exodus\
C:\Urgamefolder\MCG X-Ray\
C:\Urgamefolder\MCG Xenocide\
Now just enter the folder of campaign u wanna play and start it's game.exe files to play them.
After manually installed them once properly all work as a single work alone game.
To play you need only to mount the downloaded *.iso file before klicking the "game.exe" with
the Resolution you desire to play.





Modding Tools & Sites for Mech Commander Gold Fans:
Extracted (compressed) game files
Is a download containing the files from game's *.fst files in original root folder. It contains all files from
Mission.fst
Terrain.fst
for example.
In addition it includes the extraction tools by cmunsta.

DOWNLOAD The 30 Original campaign missions. Usable without mission data in MCG Map Editor

How to edit *.pkk files

Tool for working with: *.PAK files of MCG
One of cmunstas tools to extract pak files.

Github also contains many files for MCG
Separated download including cmunstas extraction tools.

A fansite containing patches like 1.8
Like noticed above not needed with the game folders above cause these versions all have v1.8 already installed:

The most interesting thing to download here is an update for the original game editor (editor2.exe) to find as downloadable .zip file. Only interesting when u got the editor manually installed on your system like mentioned above.

Another fansite / sarna net offering updates
See above MCG Original contains v1,8, no need to install - installing it can corrupt game files and game wont start anymore. If you install the patches like map packs do it on a copy of original folder if you want to have the functionality of its campaigns untouched.


A German fan site
Includes another original ISO download and site contains some other files like patches and some solo missions.


A British fan site
A british MCG Online Community.Containing link to ISO download from gamestand.
Look download section on site or above the ISO links I gave.
