View Full Version : MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries

Well, Microshaft has done it again in coding. As Mercenaries doesn't want to work with the 6218 drivers on my Radeon 9700 PRO.

The intro screen doesn't even come up, I get a flickering background that is black, and the sound comes in goes in about 5 second intervals. I have to give the three finger salute and shut the game down that way. As it worked with the 6200s by turning on the W Buffer, it doesn't seem to work that way with the 6218 drivers.

Not to mention CFS3's lock-up problems. All other MW4 games (Vengeance, Black Knight, Mech Packs) all work perfectly, just not mercenaries.

Anyone else having problems with this?

Just goes to show that the MW series went to hell as soon as Activision stopped making em... :(

You got that right. The graphics engine hasn't even been updated since Vengeance. MicroShaft needs to get off their a** and work on it before they lose a great franchise.

They need to make Starsiege 2 (Sierra where are you?) :D
