Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

SO HEY MECHWARRIOR

    it's certainly faster

    it still says it's going to take two days

    but actually as I type this it's really picking up the pace

    thanks

    No problem. I bet most of the seeds are US based, so yeah it'll be slower. But usually they'll have periods where they connect to a larger number of seeders and go faster.

    okay so i downloaded that huge torrent file zimfan linked yesterday and opened it in MTX, but all it did was start a new torrent for the game

    i thought the torrent i got was the game, though

    The MekTek downloader doesn't seem to want to listen to the upload speed limit I set for it, and therefore my out of control upload speed is choking my download speed. If it doesn't fix itself after lunch, I think I'll have to torrent this via a different client.

    EDIT: Download Speed: 1.9 kB/s Upload Speed: 50.1 kB/s

    Really guys?

    FASTER FASTER FASTER

    langly did you ever try the last one that came out on 360, armored core for answer?

    man that game was hella fun, especially because they basically broke some stuff so bad you could build a mech that just flew at super high speed indefinetly

    I thought it was Mechwarrior, but checking it out now...I guess not? Any connection?

    Man...I think this was one of those games I loved so much that I went back and played it again after upgrading to an EGA card.

    Yeah I had that game, too. It was pretty good fun, but I never managed to be any good at it. I always ended up getting the crap kicked out of me a few battles after the tutorial.

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    does part of your plan involve going back in time like a year and a half to when I started reading it?

    So even though I still have Mechwarrior 4: Mercs installed with Mekpak 3, I still need to download the free version from Mektek in order to get Mekpak4 and play online with you homps?

    Also is their webmaster Ike Turner or something?
