Is there anywhere online to find people who would want to play MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries or other similarly old titles?

Does MechWarrior2 have TCP Connections already? If not, there was a program called Kali back in those days that allowed playing IPX over TCP (or something like that). – StampedeXV Jul 20 '10 at 8:10
Well, I'm not sure about MW2 but MW4 has been re-acquired by the original franchise creator and released for free - you can download it off and connect using MekTek. – weiji Jul 27 '10 at 23:07
@StampedeXV I know I CAN play, I need someone to play WITH. @weiji I'm aware, but MW2 is way more fun than MW4. ;-) – Präriewolf Aug 3 '10 at 13:23
What you'd need is a classic-games-fan-chat/meeting-room/software. If you find something, I'd also like to know :). – StampedeXV Aug 3 '10 at 13:55
You probably noticed already, but just in case: Mechwarrior: Living Legends is already quite good even though it's technically still beta. – gfr Nov 20 '10 at 9:21

I believe that what you want is the MechWarrior 2: Resource Forum. They even have a server for multiplayer.

For those of you playing at home it does indeed use IPX.

Bonus: MechWarrior 3
