OS 8 was made long after the realease of mechwarrior, therefor could be very likely, incompatable. And if it wasn't about 7.5.2 it could also be incompatable. -5012 is usually an "item not found" error. That could mean that either part of your system, or part of the game isn't there. If it is NetMech MAKE SURE apple talk is installed properly.
