Myst 3 Patch, OS X App Available
9:06 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

After a lengthy wait, Mac users can now download two patches for Myst III: Exile which fix several bugs and enable the long-promised support for OS X. The first patch brings your application up to version 1.22, presumably fixing a number of issues the game has with OS 9.1. Once you have the game up to v1.22, unstuff the OS X patch (which is only 574k) and place its two files into your Myst 3 folder. Here is more info from the UbiSoft support site:

To install the files associated with Myst III your computer should have an OS 9.1 partition. The Myst III files for OS X require your Myst III version to be v1.22 and your OS to be 10.1. After updating your OS with Apple's OS X update to 10.1, you will need to install Myst III: Exile and the v1.22 upgrade. Though you may be in OS X, the upgrade will install a new shortcut to Myst III on the desktop of your OS 9.1 partition. This can be copied over to your OS X desktop.


Lastly, there are two files you will need to add to the Myst III folder to run the OS X version. Extract the Myst 3 OS X and Bink Carbon Library files from the M3OSX1.sit file. Then place them in the Myst 3 folder. You can delete the original Myst 3 Exile (US) and the Bink Shared Library, as they are no longer needed to run in OS X.

It's interesting to note the patch requires OS X 10.1, as it looks Apple's newest OS update may allow many current games and future projects to run faster and with more features than before.
