Game installing works after changing windows mode to "Windows 98" in wine configure.
After install patch 1.2 and a little modify of regedit, the mission finally runs.
Here is how to get it the game run:
Using virtual desktop mode, first time start the game, after the main menu appears, go to INSTANT ACTION, create a name and start a mission, as soon as press "launch" button, the game will popup error dialog and crash, just close or kill the game.
Then do the following:
open regedit, find [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MicroProse\MechWarrior 3\1.0]
Change "HWCardDev"=dword:00000001 To "HWCardDev"=dword:00000000
this will set game 3D device to HAL mode.
After that, run the game again, if you go to Options>Graphics&Audio, you will see the 3D is now DirectDraw HAL.
NOW you can go to INSTANT ACTION or other mode and start a mssion, no more error occurs, the mission runs well.
However, the error dialog still occurred and crashed when you tried to quit the game.
What does not
Quit the game and game video.
What was not tested
MULTIPLAYER MODE, more game play.
