Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

The original Myst is revamped for the new millennium, in 3D: dynamic and fully interactive with day and night condition cycles, changing weather, and real-time lighting effects. Unlike in the original version, with its "screen by screen" navigation and pre-rendered images that represented locations, realMyst allows the player to physically explore the game's world and includes a fully rotatable camera. The remake also adds a fifth "Age" (a world created by the power of human imagination), called the Rime Age, and a new available ending. (MobyGames)

Well I was referring to the Myst III installer I linked you, but thanks for that too. It's good to know where you got the download from.

Thank you for uploading the 10.5 installer scott praed, it solved my issues. I'm not really sure why the author removed the original download, regardless thanks. Speaking of which, the same author did also create a "universal binary" version of Myst III based on cider (much like the Revelation version) however the download links are broken. I'm aware that the ResidualVM version basically renders it obsolete, but for completeness do you think you could help me find it? The original thread for it can be found here: https://web.archive.org/web/20120620221632/http://forums.ubi.com/showthr...

I take it back, it's crashing again. Stupid piece of crap.

"Minimal install" seems to be fine within emulated environments. For the remaining files, let the CD image be mounted, which doesn't slow down speed today.

I finally got it working! Whenever you install the game, always chose "minimal install" because for whatever reason "full install" always seems to cause hanging when launching the game (at least on newer machines).

. the game does not launch in SheepShaver.

Missing emulated 3D capabilities.

Not sure what the hell happened, but it crashed within 2 seconds of launching it. Additional attempts yield the same result.
