What works

You can install the game by mounting the CD ROM with the unhide parameter. There is a hidden file that will only appear with that parameter to avoid crashing the installer. It is related to the Game's copy protection mechanism.

You can then run the game by installing the Mechwarrior XP Patch. It will play the first video, then freeze.

What does not

Playing the game. The game does not play.

Lots of things.
