The second and latest official patch for MechWarrior 3.
Since this version 1.2 incorporates all the program changes made in version 1.1, you can use this updater to update either version 1.0 or version 1.1 of MechWarrior 3. 1. Download the file MW3V12.EXE to your hard drive. (You will need about 6MB of free space on your hard drive.) 2. Insert the MechWarrior 3 disc into your CD-ROM drive. 3. Click the Exit button to exit the game. 4. Open the directory where you downloaded the update. 5. Double-click the MW3V12.EXE file to start the update. 6. Click the "Next" button in the dialog box to start the installer for the update. 7. At the next dialog box when it asks you to insert your MechWarrior 3 CD-ROM, click the "Next" button to continue the update. 8. The updater will automatically update your copy of MechWarrior 3 to version 1.2. 9. Click the Finish button to complete the update. If you are having problems updating to version 1.2, we recommend that you uninstall MechWarrior 3 and then reinstall the game before running the updater. After you update to version 1.2, the File Version for MECH3.EXE should now read "1,2." Version 1.2 Changes The following problems have been fixed in version 1.2: * If 8MB 3-D textures are selected, the program no longer crashes after several waves of Instant Action. The crackling and popping sounds heard on PCI sound cards (such as the Sound Blaster Live! and Sound Blaster PCI 128 sound cards) have been eliminated. * The Cauldron Born, Puma, Supernova and Vulture configurations now include Double Heat Sinks instead of regular Heat Sinks. * If the control setup has been customized, installing the update will no longer reset the controls to Joystick/Keyboard. The following multiplayer changes have been made in version 1.2: * Your BattleMech's arms will no longer "flail" around on the other players' screens. * Your 'Mech will no longer "run in place" on other players' screens. * If you quickly type uppercase letters and question marks in the multiplayer chat window, the program no longer crashes. * Weapon groupings are saved after a player dies and respawns. The following enhancements have been made in version 1.2: * The ability to add maps has been implemented. New maps will be periodically made available for download from our Web site. * Multiplayer lag and packet loss have been significantly reduced. * Reporting of team scores is now possible on the MSN Gaming Zone. * Two new multiplayer maps, Durgan City and The Spaceport, have been added. * You can now enter IP addresses using the numeric keypad.
