UbiSoft Addresses Myst III: Exile Concerns
9:10 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
UbiSoft, in their continuing effort to fix issues with the recent release of Myst III: Exile, has just released a downloadable patch (PC only); in a drastic step, they even offer to replace your first CD of the game itself. A corresponding Mac update is still in development, so don't grab that patch or order a new CD just yet. They have posted a list of what is fixed by this update; here's a truncated list with the minor spoilers removed (head to the UbiSoft page to see those gameplay changes):
Major Bugs fixed in version 1.1: If you'd like an all-new CD #1, a form is also available from UbiSoft which you can fill out. They will then mail you a new CD with the new fixes, which is currently in production. While this will surely cost the company, Myst's appeal with many gamers who wouldn't be comfortable downloading and installing a patch for the game probably makes this a necessity.
Fixed bug that caused game to occasionally crash when the user skips out of the end credits by pressing the space bar.
Added sound effect subtitles in some areas of J'nanin.
Added "invert mouse Y-axis" option. Press CMD-I on a Macintosh and CTRL-I on a PC to toggle mouse inversion.
Fixed some small graphical glitches.
