    Hello everyone. RetroGamer69 Here. I'm having a craving for some old school games I loved as a kid. Mainly the MechCommander 2/Wolfman RTS games. I have been trying for 4 days now to get these games to run on my Win 10 PC. I have tried VMWare, Virtual Box, and I'm installing a separate OS of Win 8. I have tried all of the compatibility fixes, but alas...nothing works. I tried ALL the fixes online, deleting files using VooDoo etc. Still, sadly nothing works. I have just about to given up hope of ever playing these games again. Please, I'm on my knees here...if anyone has an actual working fix for this...please let me know. Thank you for your listening to an old gamer fart. :

  2. How to get Mechcommander to run on Windows 10

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

    I would require more information to help you better.

    • What happens when you double click on the MechCommander game? Do you get any error message/code?
    • Is this issue specific to this particular game?
    I suggest you to run the game in compatibility mode and check if it works.

    Follow the below steps:

    1. Right click on the game and select Properties.

    2. Select Compatibility tab.

    3. Check Run this program in Compatibility mode.

    4. Let the game run and then check the functionality.

    Reference: Refer to the following Microsoft article on
    Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows.

    Note: The steps for Windows 8.1 applies to Windows 10.

    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.

    Thank you.

    Help with Mechcommander 2 working on Windows 10?

    I recently downloaded Mechcommander 2, using XP SPack 2 and 3 to try and get the compatibility to work. However, no matter what I tried, whenever I launched a mission, the game would show the proper resolution for a moment in the loading screen, then would
    change to a resolution that cuts off a third of the lower and right sides of the screen. Is there anyone who has had this problem and knows how to fix it?

    Link to a picture of what happens when mission launches: http://i.imgur.com/PHJ8a3B.jpg

    Thanks
