MWLL Beta Hotfix 1 Release

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

For those of you that have downoaded the MechWarriror: Living Legends Beta from here, Wandering Samuari Studios have already released a Hotfix for their mod to address some stability issues.

Written by Criminal – Tuesday, 29 December 2009:
Hey everyone,

Good news for all the players helping us make this beta such a huge success: We are releasing our first hotfix today that will address some of the issues with game stability. After installation you should see a good improvement in stability!

Another fix added involved clients not being able to connect to password protected servers. So to all Clans and groups using private servera you should now be able to connect with the proper password.

Here is a nice addition and something you might be interested in: Servers will now log statistical information on games played to the My Documents\My Games\Crysis\MWLL\stats folder. Each map played will write an XML file containing information on what was used in the game.

Patch: MWLL Beta Hotfix 1 Release

So go get your stuff patched up, I will post any more updates to the game as need be.

MechWarrior: Living Legends (Beta)

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

Got Crysis?
Love you some Mech on Mech action?
Then today is the day for you then as Dec 26th marks the Beta release of MechWarrior: Living Legends (MWLL)!

For those of you that are unaware of what MWLL is, MWLL is a total conversion mod for Crysis, a project of which has been in the works for close to 3 years now, and is finally coming into fruition today.
I for one have been anxiously waiting for this for shortly over 2 years myself, hopefully MWLL will fill that Mech fighter nostalgia I have been looking for, for a while now (only with re-vamped graphics).

Wandering Samurai Studios:
MechWarrior: Living Legends (MWLL) is a total conversion modification for Crysis. MWLL is at its very core a mix between a First Person Shooter (FPS) and a Simulation (SIM). This will be achieved through the use of a mixed arms massively multiplayer gaming experience where the player takes part in a battle using a variety of vehicles and weapons. MWLL is using the concepts pioneered by the “Battlefield” franchise and more recently Crysis, of a sandbox feel where you get to play what you want and how you want it. MWLL depicts the epic struggles between the two factions of Battletech “The Clans” and “The Inner Sphere”. Maps will typically have a mix of vehicles and infantry combat, using both of these to complete objectives as a team will be essential to winning rounds or campaigns in MWLL. In the project we will be bringing some of the legends of “MechWarrior” franchise back to life with new art and animations that do justice to these huge weapons of war and also do something that’s never be done before using the deep universe of Battletech. There are so many facets to Battletech and finally comes a title that is willing to explore them.

For more information on this Mod go to their website or to their ModDB page and read up on it.

Here is their Beta Release Trailer to whet your appetite:
