    For those of you who are interested in posting your Builds up here on the forums, here is how to do it. Please note that in order to see the .mech/.data, file extensions must be enabled on your computer.

    The current.mech file is the file which contains your most recently saved build in your Garage. Please note that this build must be valid in order for it to be saved to the current.mech file. The file is located in Documents> My Games> Bombdog Studios> MAV> SaveGame.

    There is another file in this folder called Builds.data. This file contains your entire library of saved Builds.

    To upload the file to the Forums, use the ‘Upload Attachments’ option while making your post, locate the file, and add it.

    To allow for builds to be known before being downloaded by other players, please provide a description and/or a screenshot of your Build along with the current.mech file. To take a Screenshot, the default button is F9 In-Game. The Screenshots are then transferred to Documents> My Games> Bombdog Studios> MAV> ScreenShots.

    As of the new forum update, in order for a downloaded build from the forums to work, make sure the name reads current.mech. The same goes for the Builds.data file.

    Updated to compensate for the partial renaming of current.mech files by the forums.

    Not sure what you mean by the partial renaming?

    Also, build.data files should not be linked to accounts anymore. I believe I fixed that a long time ago.

    Thanks for the update on the builds.data. It’s now fixed. And head over to the most recent Builds threads and you can see the file named such as current6.mech in Fenix’s thread or in the case of my thread, current7.mech.

    Yeah, each current.mech file is uniquely numbered in the order they’re uploaded.

    So far:

    current3.mech is Armoured Sniper V2 (Arena)
    current4.mech is Armoured Sniper V2 (Siege)
    current5.mech is Punisher
    current6.mech is Crucio
    current7.mech is HD Five Banger

    (For those of you wondering; 1 and 2 were both Armoured Sniper V2 (Siege), I messed up and deleted them both. So as it turns out, even a deleted build keeps the number to itself as far as the site is concerned. )

    In order to use them you have to rename the file to remove the number while it’s in your downloads and move it into your save file, then click replace when given the option.

    Ah, I am with you. Yeah, that is a limitation of the upload system, handling duplicate file names. I will see if I can fix it at all.

    Looks like you succeeded in fixing the duplicate filename issue. The Desolator doesn’t have a number in its current.mech file.

    Not fixed yet. I just posted one and it came out as current1.mech.

    I haven’t done anything to address it.

    Figured it out. It creates folders for each month, so the one Fenix posted was the first build of October.
