  New Development Snapshot 0.47.6 for Megamek, MegaMekLab, and MekHQ
Posted by: Hammer - 05-03-2020, 02:42 PM - Forum: New Releases - No Replies

Hi Everyone,
About a month since our last dev release and we had some nasty bugs in 0.47.5 for MekHQ. Those should be fixed for this version.

There isn't a Mac release and you'll have to use the Unix release. We are having issues with the Gradle packaging scripts and various security settings in MacOS.  We are working on the issue and have no ETA for a fix.

We got bug fixes. Abandon ship! Large spacecraft can now launch escape pods, giving the opposing player more opportunity to commit war crimes. Princess has also gone back for a couple of combat classes at flight school and learned that turrets should be mounted on the top floor to be more effective. A ton of new sprites (Thanks Deadborder and Saxarba). Speaking of Saxarba we've made his tileset (we were using Atmospheric) the official default tileset of Megamek.

In a word bug fixes and one feature - overhauled Battle Armor Record Sheet printing.

For MekHQ we've got a chunk of bug fixes and a few QoL new features. See the impact of the war crimes in Abandon ship! first hand in MekHQ.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the devs that drop in and out. If Slack isn't your thing check out these Discords with Megamek channels - Everything BattleTech and Classic BattleTech

As a reminder when moving between versions:
1)   Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)   Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post.

Hey all!

Megamek has brought me a lot of joy over the past few months, especially with the current state of things.

I'm a big LAM fan, and I've found a few odd corners that either I got the rules wrong or the system isn't quite spot on. Is this the forum to post to? And should I ask here first to see if it's not really a bug before posting elsewhere?

For instance, if I have the Leaping option on, and the LAM descends more than 3 levels in a hex, the game thinks it's jumping off a cliff and gives me a roll to avoid leg damage. Or is that an actual rule for LAMs that I missed? Or is this the wrong place to ask? Smile

Bug Public Slack Channel Inop
Posted by: BullseyeSmith - 04-20-2020, 10:42 PM - Forum: Problems? - Replies (1)


I'm trying to join the dev team to help code more awesomeness and squish some bugs.  Justin "Windchild292" Bowen told me to join the slack channel to discuss some things via a reply to a PR I recently submitted, but the public just times out.  

Unable to request to join, as I either have to receive an invite via email or have a workspace email.  Please advise on how to proceed.

I'm using Windows 10. Doesn't work on Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

  New Development Snapshot 0.47.5 for Megamek, MegaMekLab, and MekHQ
Posted by: Hammer - 04-01-2020, 10:58 PM - Forum: New Releases - No Replies

Hi Everyone,
Been a few months since our last dev release. This is a massive release with a staggering amount of stuff in it which means their will likely be issues. But unless there are major deal breaking bugs in this release. Things will slow on development for the foreseeable future.  The dev's time have become limited with everything going on in world.

There isn't a Mac release and you'll have to use the Unix release. We are having issues with the Gradle packaging scripts and various security settings in MacOS.  We are working on the issue and have no ETA for a fix.

Lots of bug fixes, some errata implemented - looking at you Narrow/Low profile. But a couple of big new things. Fuel-air Explosives for when you just gotta kill that Clan Elemental Cluster. Princess has graduated the next level of artillery school, she can counter-battery fire and so can you.
Thanks to Simon Landmine's testing of the new map editor there have been a bunch of bugfixes and further improvements to the map editor.

Their is a staggering amount of bug fixes and the record sheet project has completed new Aerospace Sheets and conventional Infantry sheets. We are targetting BA and Protomeks in the next wave but no ETA.

MekHQ has finally gone to the dark side with the dark mode implementation complete. Windchild's has done a lot of work on Personnel. These improvements add Random Marriages, divides names into Given Names and Surnames while adding trailing honourifics, Former Spouse Tracking, expanding Family Displays, and a few new marriage and divorce options relating to how names are changed.

Additionally, there are fourteen new options to campaigns (which can now be reach in existing campaigns through keyboard shortcuts: hold ALT, then press 'F' followed by 'C'), under the Personnel tab in the Family Options tab. These are a mixture of new and additional customization, plus a few new features.

  • Keyboard Shortcuts for the top Menu (hold ALT, then use the underlined key for the menu option) (primary tab shortcuts coming in the next release)
  • Hangar tab pop-up menu bulk selection additions and fixes
  • Localized Natural Order Sorting (i.e. going 1, 2, 10, 20 instead of the previous 1, 10, 2, 20)
  • Proper Gender and Portrait Migration from MegaMek
  • Advance Day in Personnel Market
  • Special Abilities are generated for Veteran and Elite Personnel on Person Generation
Note: You might notice that female personnel may have a box, underline, or an additional space between their given name(s) and surname(s). This is due to an issue for certain non-Latin characters in names in our name text files. This has been fixed, but unfortunately could not be fixed in save files through migration. A extra space can be removed by deleting it (provided the new given name makes sense), but any boxes or underline will require manual fixes. I would recommend doing so by comparing the name to what is in the data/names/firstnames_female.txt file, and replace any names that you find have issues with those located in said file.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the devs that drop in and out.  

As a reminder when moving between versions:
1)   Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)   Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post.

  Mekwars Legends 2.0 - 1st Campaign
Posted by: Ironboot - 03-18-2020, 04:56 PM - Forum: Campaigns - No Replies

Hello everyone! 

Mekwars Legends 2.0 1st Campaign is starting up!  Legends is set in the Jihad era (3067 to 3081). 

The server is running 11 factions (Crusader Clans, Warden Clans, Word of Blake, Raven Alliance, Periphery, FWL, Trinity Alliance, Federated Suns, Draconis Comine, Lyran Alliance, Rasalhague Dominion).

What happens if I log on and only a Crusader Clan player and a Trinity Alliance player are logged on?

Well, good news!  The server has a planet called LEGENDS which is west of the Free Worlds League for factions that are not near each other. 

The meta campaign part of the server the faction leaders can change the buildtables of the meks being pulled each week.

I will be online (Ironboot) to answer any questions you have around 8:30pm est.  We also have a great group of players who can also help too!

Here is a link to the 1st Campaign client from dropbox -

You can follow us on facebook - Battletech campaign "Legends 2.0"

Discord - Mekwars Legends 2.0

last but not least...

Good luck and good hunting!

  Mech Sale Price / Quality
Posted by: rroby - 03-01-2020, 08:19 PM - Forum: MekHQ - Replies (2)

How is 'mech sale price determined?

How is 'mech quality determined?

For example, I purchase a Locust LCT-1E new from the factory costs 1,574,200 c-bills. In the hanger it will show a quality of D with a value of 655,117 c-bills.

I believe the initial quality is set to D as the default mercenary value for the Jihad era, which I am running a merc unit during the Jihad. I assume the quality will change over time based on maintenance / combat damage.

Thank you.

I've been poking around in MML lately as I'm starting to get into modifying mechs / vehicles. I noticed that for the Generic Expandable Services Vehicle it includes SV Chassis Mod [Tractor] and SV Chassis Mod [Trailer]. When I look at the equipment list, even using "show unavailable" these options are not listed.

When I add Tractor or Trailer mannually to a blk file MML recognizes the equipment. I just can't selected from the equipment list in MML.

Perhaps I'm missing something.

  Possible Bug - HQ 0.47.4

Just recently updated to 0.46.1 for my campaign. Really like the changes. Then I saw the notes about the planetary data changes for 0.47. Downloaded o.47.4 just to check it out. Copied over all of my custom data (campaign, images, mechs, etc.) and started it up.

When I looked at the hanger I noticed all of my custom vehicles showed as "crippled", but show no damage in the repair bay. The custom mechs are fine. These vehicles show up fine in 0.46.1 (and I used megemeklab 0.46.1 to make them).

Not sure if this is a bug or there is just something wrong with my files.
