Announcing Core Rulebook Reprints, with Vintage Covers:
To celebrate the imminent release of the BattleTech Beginner Box and BattleTech: A Game of Armored Combat boxed sets, the release of Harebrained Schemes’ BATTLETECH, as well as Piranha Games hotly-anticipated MechWarrior 5, new printings of the core BattleTech rulebooks are now available in PDF from the Catalyst Game Labs store.

The PDFs feature fully-updated errata and vintage artwork covers! As each of the core rulebooks are reprinted, they’ll receive a vintage cover to celebrate the wonderful history of the BattleTech universe. Each represents the most up-to-date, polished version of the essential BattleTech rules.

Any customers who previously purchased these PDFs will receive an e-mail notification enabling them to download these updated printings.

The classic artwork gracing the covers of these products appears below. The line includes:
  • Total Warfare, the core BattleTech rulebook. Following the book’s print debut at Origins Game Fair and Gen Con, pre-orders for the print edition are now available, with an expected street date of August 22, 2018. (ARTIST: Les Dorscheid; First Publication: BattleTech Manual, 1987.)
  • TechManual, the core construction rulebook allowing players to create their own exciting units for unique BattleTech games. A companion volume to Total Warfare, TechManual provides construction rules for tournament-legal units, as well as core weaponry and equipment and the newest, bleeding edge technologies. (ARTIST: Doug Chafee; First Publication, Tactical Handbook, 1994.)
  • Tactical Operations, the advanced rules that apply to on-world operations. It includes new movement and combat options, an extensive Advanced Weapons and Equipment section, and the rules for playing and constructing advanced Support Vehicles and Mobile Structures. (ARTIST: Doug Chaffee; First Publication, CityTech, Second Edition boxed set, 1994.)
Note: the hard-copy availability of the new printings of Tactical Operations and TechManual has not been determined.

A fully-updated errata PDF of Strategic Operations, the advanced rules for aerospace combat and solar system-level campaigns, is in the works. (ARTIST: Steve Venters; First Publication: BattleForce box set, 1987.)

The PDFs are priced at $15 each, and are available now.

If you’re traveling to Gen Con from Aug. 2 to Aug. 5, be sure to stop by Catalyst Game Labs’ booth to check out the new BattleTech boxed sets and all of Catalyst’s great games!

Site Patched to 2.18.8:
I know, there's no rhyme or reason as to when I push updates out. But another one is out there none-the-less. This includes some bug fixes I recently introduced as a result of some code-rewrite, but also some enhancements to move forward with the Equipment listings and ultimately custom equipment. Details are as follows:

  • Fixed a bug where placing, and then removing, a piece of equipment could also remove another random component, usually an actuator. This only happened in rare cases where you had added equipment, had not yet place it, then refreshed your screen, and switch the chassis type.
  • Fixed a bug where placing equipment in the right leg of a Tripod would remove all the leg actuators. This happened if you were designing a quad, then switched to a tripod.
  • Fixed an issue where the distribution configuration icons were still visible if your design was a Tripod, and then you clicked the Reset button. While the center leg was removed, the icons were still visible.
  • Added text description fields for Cost, Weight, and Criticals. This allows for those fields to show a descriptive value in the weapons listing, whereas the actual fields can hold numeric values used for calculations during design.
  • Added an Availability column to the database to hold the four-character Availability Rating each piece of equipment has. I'll be adding them as I progress through the equipment, verifying what I have is accurate.
  • Added the ability for placement rules to be specified while designing. These will appear under Construction Rules in the weapon listing, and will be usable for custom equipment. The first one I've incorporated was the restriction on location placement (e.g., AES may only be places in arms or legs). I'll be adding more as I go.
