Edit: everything seems to be back up and working as of 10/25/2014 seems like they have been having some server issues//
Odd, it was up and running until recently. I have managed to get mechwarrior 2, ghost bear, and mercenaries (well sort of an 8-bit catostrophe) working (dos of course) with their help. Probably maintenance, hopefully back soon.
P.S. the youtube video I posted also has instructions to get voodoo 3dfx version working. I have not succeeded yet, but others have. Give it a go!
Edit: since the website is not up I will mention the basic instructions:
download the 32 bit executible
extract contents to folder on desktop (or wherever)
Get a mechwarrior 2, ghost bear, and/or mercenaries iso or cd
Open Mechvm application (in the folder you just extracted)
click install+import and either find location of iso or mount iso using a virtual drive (it should also detect a cd in the drive)
-> click install+import at the top left
Click play game at top right
Select game (DOS, Dosbox) and then click start campaign. And you should be on your way.
Sometimes I had errors getting into the actual 3d part of the game, but if you mess around with it a little it should work just fine (maybe even on the first try
