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:
  • Fixed bug that caused game to occasionally crash when the user skips out of the end credits by pressing the space bar.

    Minor Changes

  • 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.
  • 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.

    Look for IMG's review of Myst III: Exile in the near future, and we'll also be bringing you details on the Mac 1.1 Patch as soon as it's available.
