January 28, 2013
The infamous franchise, Mechwarriors is still kicking and Mektek is betting that it can regain a significant user base with its new Mechwarriors release scheduled for February.

Mektek is keeping quite about the project. During the week of January 21st, Mechwarriors Mercenaries has been migrated to GameRanger so that Mektek may pull all of its resources to make ready the new Mechwarrior experience. Unlike GameRanger, Mektek are game coders who's contribution made Mechwarriors Mercenaries free-to-play.

GameRanger, the New Steward for Mechwarriors
January 25, 2013
The news on the Mektek nor on the GameRanger site says anything yet about the migration of Mechwarriors to GameRanger, a project with over 200 game titles created by Scott Kevill in 1999 and still going strong. Using a Windows install, GameRanger acts as a connection point utilizing a built in port forwarding routine with chat channels for Mechwarriors installed on your PC. If you don't have the game installed, you are unable to play. The problem is how will others download the game. Currently there is no method nor files to access for downloading or to update. GameRagner's business model is free to play. You do have to put up with some intrusive video ads if you do not pay for a membership. GameRanger provides a simple install for Mechwarriors compared to the slow, bulky and complicated method of the Mektek's MTX client.
