Another annoying Mechwarrior 4 problem
Posted 15 October 2005 - 07:50 AM
I am able to launch MW4, I can play instant actions and watch the cinemas my problem is involving the campaign mode. I can play the very virst lunar mission with no problems. Upon going back to the mission screen where the little video is supposed to play the game locks and I see no video BUT I do hear the audio. At this point I can not move the mouse pointer and ALT-F4 doesn't close the program. I have to reset my machine all together which makes me not very happy. I tried playing the videos with media player and they work so I am at a loss for a fix.

If that doesn't work, try copying your video and music files from the CD into the Mechwarrior directory on your HDD. I'm not sure of the path, but on the CD they should be under: Data\Video(or Movies) and Data\Music. Drag and drop the folders from the CD to your Mechwarrior folder on your HDD. The folder won't be there, so you'll be making new ones.
They have to end up in the same directory as on the CD, probably Mechwarrior\data\video\movies. You'll be putting in the movies folder, it won't be there, the same goes for the music folder.
If you're not sure what I mean, I'll be around during the day, I'll try to clarify, it's hard not knowing exactly what the paths are in your game directory.

Be sure to clean up your old drivers after uninstalling, and before installing new ones.

If you're using XP, I'd suggest getting MW4: Mercs. You can get the MW4 Compilation which includes MW4, Black Knight, and Mercs for about $21.00 shipped on Amazon.com. (MW4 Mercs itself is like $28). MW4 Mercs is verified to work on Windows XP and gets way more people playing it online.
