Alright good to hear! Do not hesitate to ask for help, better explanation or step by step guides if you run into trouble, but the more concrete you can make your request the better I can assist.
MekHQ and MegaMek can be hard to wrap your head around at first. They have more in common with accounting software than game software at times. :)

As far as rules it's a bit more complicated. I am unable to just copy and paste from the manuals due to obvious copyright issues, but I can explain rules in my own words. Many of the tactical rules are automatically enforced by MegaMek anyhow.
Some gameplay (like picking up ejected mechwarriors by another Mech capable of doing so) is a little less obvious, but once we'll start doing battles I'll try to have a post up explaining how things work and what to keep in mind.

Kushan and Gusington: are you guys doing ok with company creation?

Sorry Ysk, I had a crap ton of IRL events going on this week and was completely burnt out to try to work on this.

Bright side I have most of my bio written so I just need to roll my lances now that I know how and I’ll be good.

As far as I know I'm not supposed to be doing anything yet. (Except re-installing MekHQ.)  :D <:-)

Apologies Yassy I didn’t see this thread until now - I should withdraw from this, it looks to require more time than I thought originally.

We are the guys in blue.

We point the sharp end of the sticks at the guys in red and make “pew-pew” noises.

Rinse and repeat

Someone can randomly roll up a company for you, Gus, and you can chug along on that.

Actually... I'm wondering if a WHOLE COMPANY is too much to bite off and chew at once, Ysk. I mean a whole company for each of them (us). Why not start by assigning each of them a mech, or they roll one randomly, and roll play that from there? That's a lance, right?

One mech HAS TO BE easier to manage than nine twelve (and HQ).

^Hmm...ok.

And I've fallen for that Jersey line before, but not for ribs.
