Well, hell, those guys at MekTek.net are serious as a DCMS MechWarrior. They really are committed to release Battletech - MechWarrior 4 as a downloadable full version free FPS PC game.
MekTek has published two posts on its website that give updates about the highly-anticipated full version release.
One says that they are "gearing up for the Mercs release" while the other, well, --- does this:
"Since the announcement, we have been diligently preparing for the release of Mechwarrior4 which has all of the digital protection mechanisms removed. Along with this development we have also been working on our MekMatch software. For those of you not familiar, MekMatch is a reverse engineered protocol developed for match making services in Mechwarrior4 by MekTek. This service was developed after Microsoft terminated the Zonematch service which officially supported Mechwarrior4 multiplayer. Our MekMatch software needed a serious overhaul to handle the amount of traffic we expect on our servers when the game is released. MekTek also plans to include MekPak3.1 with the free release of Mechwarrior4 which includes an additional 100+ new battlemechs, dozens of new weapons, maps, and other content developed by MekTek. The distribution will come as a single file self-installable which will be initially downloadable via torrent trackers and later provided in multi part volumes, ISO."
