MechCommander Gold - Darkest Hours v4.2
Free Fullversion Download
"MechCommander was my X-COM; it meaningfully splits your role as a player—you had to be an engineer and a tactican—oscillating between management and combat, returning to missions that you couldn't beat with creative loadouts. Atop all this, it's available for free after being released by Microsoft"
12/2018 - after two years of modding i recently released a new standalone fullversion for good old Mech Commander. My priority in comparison to the previous v3.0 was bugsolving and fixing issues. Now that procedure is done and this is the latest available fullversion - and the most complete - that ever existed. I have got a great feedback, bugreports and ideas from previous version and want to thank all people who participated in the development process to make the game comfortable to play - just like it is now, thank you, dear Mech/Battletech community!
What is MechCommander Gold - Darkest Hours fullversion standalone (for free) v4.2 all about and where are the differences between original game standalone versions?
MCG-DarkestHours savegame menu. On modDB you can find all imaginable informations about this remastered fullversion and much more MC related stuff. I wish all players a nice christmas and happy new year.

HE DID IT AGAIN!
April - 2020
Yes... after April 2017 (v2.0), X-mas 2017 (v3.0),
April 2018 (v3.3) ,X-mas 2018 (v4.0) and...
April 2019 (v4.1) - X-Mas 2019 was a bad time for MechCommanders. On december 2019 i was very busy in business and i stopped my development 2019 due to some things that happened with a certain member of the community - that repeatedly offended my work without being interrupted or any support by NGNG hosters. After i officially left NGNG and quit with SeanLang i was - one day - certainly IP banned from their webpage. I couldn't login anymore and got a permaban screen without any further notices. I could still visit the page but some months later the webpage itself vanished. Somehow 99% of all remaining MC 1 content in the internet got lost over night. Since then many people contacted me for alternate pages showing the content i released on NoGutsNoGalaxy - but any link i could refer to was leading to NGNG twitch now instead of readable forum content and information for players.
NOW! During the worst disease that mankind seems to have to master those days - i decided to help keeping people at home. What can you enjoy the most when you are at home - maybe when you even not have a permanent or stable internet connection? - MECH COMMANDER! - right! - MechCommander offers a huge load of fun and has an isometric 2D lovely detailed C&C style ingame graphics that are well aged over the years. Still - even 22 years after it has been released for the first time - it is one of the best and my absolute favorite RTS games without any base-building ever. X-Com style unit control in real time - absolutely delightful. You are playing my rematered MechCommander Gold - Darkest Hours Free Standalone Edition (developed 2016-2020). Final version number release is TODAY! There will be no further updates neither any further development of this built. This built is the most perfect and bugfree existing MechCommander standalone, that exists. I wish all MechCommanders a happy eastern and:
RizZ Note (April, 12th, 2020): I have replaced the 4.0 version built with an upgraded version that contains the last official patch and some additional minor cosmetic fixes. People who have downloaded v4.0 previously don't need to download the fullversion again. You find the download link for a 4.2 patch above. The 4.2 patch although contains it's previous version 4.1 - so no need to ask for that one anymore.
By the way - the modDB MC information guide content will be mirrored to hardlight-productions & everythingbattletech.com by long term (partner sites). MechCommander never dies - even if - it revives!
You want to be partner, mirroring MC information & contact? Just sign up your webpage and contact me here on modDB!
This is an universal mod. It can be although used for basic MCG DM, all user standalones and MCG-DH. Read install notes!
Have fun, thats an order!
MechCommander 1 & Gold
All downloadable content
KEEP IN MIND before you install:
Warning: Physically MechCommander can NOT be installed on Windows8-10 or above. To workaround you can download a prepared full installed game folder. Extract and place the game folder on your hard-disk. Mount the iso file in a virtual drive (Win10 right mouse klick and you will sh.. bricks) - and starting the game by executing one of the MCG.exe files in the game folders on your hard-disk.
So when you have downloaded and mounted the disk you just need one of the following standalone game folders to start the game with. I repeat: The *.iso just needs to be mounted - you will start the game one of the from the game folders you can download below.
ModDB Original game folder full version downloads for MechCommander:
Recommended: Each standalone version above must be stored in a seperate MCG gamefolder. I recommend you name this folders like above or similar to it.
