NetMech was the stand-alone multiplayer expansion for MechWarrior2: 31st Century Combat. As the multiplayer portion of MW2 fell behind, they released MW2:31CC without it. NetMech was later released as a free download and as a boxed set that you could buy. Only people who bought the NetMech game and/or bought MW2:31CC could host a game/lobby in NetMech as hosting required the CD to be in your CD-ROM drive. And only people who had MW2:31CC could modify/customize their mechs.

There is a nice streamlined setup for NetMech that can be downloaded here. It runs the DOS version of NetMech under DOSBox. It still requires a CD to host games, but not join and play.

We will have to set up some dates to run some old NatMech drops, as MechWarrior2 has aged fairly well. You can watch a clip here of multiplayer gameplay.

I just tried it out, and I was able to host and launch the game without the CD.
So something must have been changed along the way.
