Still deadlocked on a show stopping, unrelated bug. Manpower is slightly more available now, but this one is tricky.

Thanks for the update Adam. I'm sure we all want to see Uru go on, and this could be a real impediment to that.

Will your proposed fix be implemented on Gehn shard first? I downloaded that and am participating, just in case.

With the 25th anniversary re-releases that are supposed to be updated to work for Windows 10, I'm hoping this problem will be fixed for its version of Uru CC. I mean it's way too big of a thing to ignore. And if they have a fix for it there I wouldn't think it would be that much of a leap for them to apply it to MOULa also.

So, I kind of feel like until we see what happens with that, we might not even need to do a fan made fix? Yeah, I'm really not sure where we stand now. We'll see... around November I think.

If Cyan Worlds fix it, they can also fix the Gahreesen bug, where "I have to jump on the rock with the Maintainer Marker and then, using the flymode to reach the rock with the Journey Cloth" (if I jump directly on the rock with the Cloth, I fall through the textures)!
Will Cyan Worlds fix these bugs? I hope...

The fix has been provided to Chogon, however, it's Myst 25th... Not Uru :wink:. Doesn't mean it can't or won't happen, I just wouldn't count on it.

On the box is written "Myst Uru - Complete Chronicles", and this one is part of the 7 games which will be updated ; so...

Great news everyone ! I have a standalone fix that works for all versions of the game ! (CC and Uru live !). Took a bit of time since I'm not used to this kind of hacking...

I only tested in fullscreen, so it *might* not work in windowed mode - I'm doing this on my work PC so didn't have time to test windowed mode. I'd be interested in knowing if it does work ! (if it doesn't, I'll try to fix it when I have some time)

This is only a temporary solution for Uru Live (until Adam can release the bugfix), but it will work correctly on Complete Chronicles too.

How to use:
Start Uru, wait for it to load the Relto, then Alt-Tab to desktop. Then run the included UruHookHost.exe - you'll see a window pop-up, and a message saying it successfully injected code into the game. You can now close this window, the game will be patched for as long it is running.
Please note: every time you start Uru, you must also start UruHookHost.exe ! Do not attempt to start UruHookHost BEFORE Uru either ! (I might improve this behavior in the future, no promise though.)

Please also take note: this patches the game at run-time by using code injection. This is a method frequently used by viruses, so your anti-virus might complain about UruHookHost. Don't worry, it's a false positive and safe to run.

I also included the sources of this application, in case someone is interested. It uses EasyHook, which handles most of the tedious injection stuff :)

Do we have to put this folder in a specific folder of the system?
Can we put it directly in "C:"?

Nope ! Just make sure you don't separate the .exe from the .dlls...

Probably. But any folder will do, really...

Ok.

So:
- /thumbsup2 It works perfectly in Uru live, with fullscreen and windowed mode; thank you very much for it! 8)
- But I have an error with CC (a Drizzle32 installation):
UruHookHost wrote:
Attempting to inject: UruHookDll.dll

RhInjectLibrary failed with error code = -1073741790
Unable to open target process. Consider using a system service.
Press Enter to exit

PS: We have to press Enter 2 times to exit.

Uh, strange, as I've been doing all my testing on Complete Chronicles... The injector uses the executable name to identify the game (UruExplorer.exe).
The only thing I've been doing differently is bypass Uru.exe and UruSetup.exe so that the game loads faster. Might be because UruExplorer is a child process of either of those... I'll have a look, thanks for the feedback :)

(glad to hear it works in both windowed and fullscreen mode !)

I tried launching directly the UruExplorer.exe of CC, but had the same error.
To load the game faster, you can rename in "Uru folder\avi" the "Intro0.bik" and "Intro1.bik" files (Ubisoft and Cyan Worlds logos), to "removed_Intro0.bik" and "removed_Intro1.bik" (for example).

On my system, the process that the shortcuts are running are:
- "C:\Uru Live\UruLauncher.exe"
- C:\Uru\Uru.exe

I put UruHook directly in C:
