Guides on emulating older games

RAVE 3D-accelerated version also available. contains the original CD data in cue/bin format, including music tracks. The best way to play MechWarrior 2 is to burn this to a CD-R.

mechwarrior2_31stcenturyc.sit contains only the data portion of the game CD in toast format. You can mount this image to play without a real CD, but you won't get any music.

MechWarrior2_v1.2_NetMech.sit contains the patch to v1.2 and the NetMech installer.

MechWarrior2_Volume_Fix.sit contains tweaked binaries that do not adjust the system sound volume (normally MechWarrior 2 sets the volume to maximum). This is highly recommended for any Mac using built-in speakers, or external speakers lacking a volume knob, such as the Apple Pro Speakers.

Important Crash Fixes for G3/G4

Launch error -5012 is solved by updating to v1.2. You must pick "Select Folder..." and point to the MechWarrior 2 directory, or the updater will not put the files in the right place.

The NetMech map "Avon - King of the Hill" will crash (PowerPC unmapped memory exception) unless you have very close to 1GB of total system memory. If you have less than 1GB, set Virtual Memory to 960MB or greater. If you have more than 1GB, enable a large RAM Disk.

By the way, the music works best with an internal SCSI CD-ROM. With IDE, there might be a slight pause each time the track begins.

Yes, this works fine in Mac OS 9.2.2 as long as it is natively booted (not OS X Classic Environment). Before installing, you may want to copy your Sound Manager extension somewhere else, as it will be overwritten with version 3.1 from 1995.
