Mechwarrior review

ACE Magazine: "The visuals throughout Mechwarrior are expertly drawn, with full CGA, EGA and Tandy 16 graphics modes support. The sim's filled vectors move along at a fair pace even on an 8Mhz baby. The worst aspect of the audio are the appalling soundtracks that crop up during the game. Mechwarrior will no only appeal to fans of the board game, but also deserves a look from any self-respecting role-game or simulation player."

    I downloaded this game and installed it using D-Fend Reloaded. I start my first mission, and upon destroying the enemy's mechs, the game crashes. I have tried to find a fix for this. There isn't much help out there I guess because the game is so old. Is there anything I can do?
