[edit] Source

I have never heard of this game and its not mentioned in BattleTech: 25 Years of Art & Fiction... has anybody got a source of info on it? --Dmon 15:00, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

They didn't mention every game made. This was a Amiga computer game that later became freeware. It based on Battletech. Its related to Titans of Steel -- Wrangler 17:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
After a bit of research I do not think it was an official release but I will ask over on the CBT forums. On the other hand though looking into this game has turned up a good reason to keep ToS on the Wiki, what I might do though is merge the ToS article into this article detailing how it is a recreation. --Dmon 19:01, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Name

The article name calls it MechForce. The article doesn't mention that name, however, and consistently refers to Titans of Steel instead. What's the deal, are these two different games or is it the same game (if the latter is true, what is the correct name)? Frabby (talk) 13:24, 17 November 2013 (PST)

I'm not sure, all I know is that the redirect for "Titans of Steel" goes here and the external links at the bottom explicitly lead to Titans of Steel related things. I don't own the game, and therefore can't confirm or deny the article's naming. I merely tried to add more info to the existing article. -BobTheZombie (talk) 14:55, 17 November 2013 (PST)
There are a couple of online games by the name MechForce. I don't know if any of them are related in any way and as far as I know have nothing to do with Titans of Steel (or possibly even Battletech) [[1]] [[2]] This old forum has some information about the Amiga game [[3]] --Dark Jaguar (talk) 15:18, 17 November 2013 (PST)
There was an Amiga game named MechForce, I have a copy and I played it a lot way back. It is not the same as the Big Viking Games one mentioned above, and it is not the same as Titans of Steel. It had the following features: combat (on a top-view hex grid, like Titans of Steel; combat modes included roving patrol, arena and a few set missions), 'Mech design and customization, pilot skills and XP, unit creation and management, and map and mission design. I'd be happy to write up an article, but I'm very new on this Wiki so I'll let others decide what to do with the pages. Clearly, a "MechForce" page which has information on Titans of Steel is wrong.

By all means, please do (re)write the article about the Amiga game! As far as I can see, the article as it stands refers to another game than the title suggests. I'll move the Titans of Steel content to an appropriately named page and I'll check back with Wrangler what he meant when he said there was a connection between the games above.

Interestingly Youtube pulled this [[4]], it is basically an Amiga version of MegaMek from the looks of it, there is info about the actual game in the comments below the video.--Dmon (talk) 15:40, 6 June 2014 (PDT)
