There is a part that I want. I don’t say need because technically with time effort and money, I can make the wrong part right, but if I can track down the right part and make this all simpler, I would prefer to go that route.

So, to Facefuck marketplace it is! Facebook.com: a good place to buy Battletech Mechs, used cars and occasionally parts. There is literally zero other reasons to go on there.

Outwars Hacking: Team Images

I always thought it would be fun to have custom Clan logos instead of the generic team images to pick from in multiplayer. These don’t do anything, it’s just for cool factor. They are located within \shelldb\netimg named icon01.pcx through icon10 so I guess we only get to have ten clans!

Outwars Hacking: Multiplayer Mission List

Okay folks, I am going through digging up and re-remembering some old knowledge about hacking Outwars.

The astute amongst you may notice hey ass isn’t a real mission, the game agrees and since there is no ass.mis it throws an error and immediately quits:

Lesson here being, don’t screw up the .mml file!

As soon as you add more than 15 entries to this file, the game actually renders a scroll bar but there seems to be some hard coded limit that prevents it from properly handling more missions. No matter, nobody is every going to play anything but anub1m anyway 😛
