Yeah... I just purchased the Cyan complete pack, and while playing RealMyst there just seem to be selected bits of animation that simply do not show up... including the 'last message' in the forechamber, and the animations of Achenar & Sirrus in their prison books... The last message in particular, just shows completely white where Atrus' face would be. Likewise, the panels in Achenar's book, etc, are also just white...

Anyone know anything about this?

I think I had an issue like this a while ago with realMyst; I don't remember whether I had to restart or re-download the game, though.

Well, it seems like I got the videos to play correctly, by following the Steam forum & running in Win 98 compatibility mode... I am guessing this, by the fact that the Myst linking book at the beginning is showing animation that was missing before...

But I can't get any further in to check the forechamber, tho, because now it bogs down so slowly it is downright unplayable.


Edit: Okay! Cracked it! I'm running it on Win XP service pack 3 compatibility, as an administrator, at only 256 colors, and selected "disable desktop composition" and "disable display scaling on high DPI settings." I also used the Steam setup to run at only 16 bit....

That seems to do the trick; I am seeing all the animation, and it's running smoothly enough to play, even at 1920 X 1080 aspect ratio.

NOW I'm excited!!!
