@Springpaw this has nothing to do, that Wireshark is a default program to launch the vidcard.cap file.
You can also try the https://www.gameranger.com/ software. It supports Machines.
Another suggestion is to use the https://www.gameranger.com/ with which I was able to play Machines online.
Back in 2011 I enlarged (using some quality-assuring algorithms) all the texture4 files. This includes all the machines, buildings and weapons. The effect is pretty cool if you ask me. You can see for yourself:
Just download the zip and extract it to your Machines/models/texture4 and texture2 folders.
Check these files here:
The zip consists of all software needed to follow the http://wiredforwar.wikia.com/wiki/Map_making_tutorial.
I've just added a comment to the article, if you could support me I would be very grateful.
Good to see something's happening in Machines Community :)
