MW4 working (most of it)

How to proceed to get the game working:
- Install it (should work fine; choose complete installation)
- Patch it, if you want to (for later patches, e.g. 3.0 you'll need to set your windows version to win98, because the Cdac14ba.dll creates an executable CDAC14BA.EXE inside windows/system32/drivers directory, which hangs, and you had to kill it several times, when you're inside game menu. For win98 it tries to load something like CDAC14BA.vxd which silently fails)
- Get a NoCD-crack from somewhere
- Sometimes, you'll have to have CD 2 inserted in your drive (or image mounted). The location of the CD must be set as CDRom-drive in winecfg, and in system.reg CDPath has to point to this location, e.g.
[Software\\Microsoft\\Microsoft Games\\MechWarrior Vengeance]
- Create a file "options.ini" inside your game directory, containing this (modify it for your needs, these are high detail settings. screenwidth/screenheight settings might be interesting):
is optional, but as fullscreen doesn't work, this seems to prevent it from trying to go to fullscreen mode.
Without it I get an error dialog saying that my hardware doesn't fit to MW4 :-)
optional. suppresses error dialogs, where we would have to click "continue".
With enabled videos, game doesn't even start. I tried to recompress the videos, without success. Also native amstream.dll doesn't work (with native amstream.dll game complains about getfiltergraph, before crashing, but that seems to be a non-critical error)
