Fortunately I have the DOS version of Mech 2 and Mercs which both work great under DosBox. For the Win95 ver of Mercenaries I have to resort to running it under VPC or Qemu which is hardly ideal. No big deal anyway but it would be nice to see Mercs in D3D again.

I just happend to dig up my Mechwarrior 2 Titanium pack and the first thing I installed was good ol Merceneries. Thought I could run it in compatability mode but just happend to find out on the net its not possible... "yet". Its weard the game trys to load the screen turns black like its going into the game then it crashes to desktop and nothing.
Ill have to give your dll patch a try for regular mech2, if it works I would be highly interested in having one for Mereneries since its my fav of the trilogy.
EDIT: Patch dosent work, says my dll file is different, thought the titanium pack might not include the patch so I downloaded v1.1 for mech2 and it tells me that titanium already has those fix's. Anyway to make this fix available for the titanium pack?
