Bungie.net Fixes, Resets
9:23 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

BungieNet has released a small patch to hopefully clear up any problems you might be having when trying to play Myth II online since the recent move of the servers to Redmond, WA. If you've tried this patch and still cannot play, you may not be alone. Here are details from Bungie.net:

A number of users have reported still being unable to connect after applying this fix. There are a number of possible reasons for this. First, make sure you have a good net connection and you're not connecting from behind a firewall or a proxy server. Next, make sure your login and password are correct. If you get an error saying "Unable to connect to bungie.net" try opening the "bungienet" file inside the preferences folder using a text editor (PC users: rt click, select open, select WordPad; Mac users: drag the file on top of a text editing program). There should be a string in this file that reads "venus.bungie.net". If you have the IP address instead of this string you'll need to uninstall Myth II (Mac users: drag the Myth II folder to the trash; PC users: run the uninstaller, then manually delete the files left in the Myth II folder), reinstall Myth II, reapply the latest patch, and reapply this update.
In an effort to make things a little more exciting for Myth II fanatics, Bungie has also added a wildcard to the reset schedule. Previously, they had a set schedule of game types which had their scores reset each month, to prevent anyone from dominating a particular gametype. Now a random game will be reset that's not on the schedule, just for kicks. Here's the next reset schedule:
  • Last Man on the Hill
  • Assassin
  • WILD!


  • Body Count
  • King of the Hill
  • WILD!


  • Territories
  • Flag Rally
  • Capture the Flag
  • WILD!

  • Stop by Macgamefiles to grab the patch, and remember that The Mill is a alive and well, and chock full of great Myth/Myth II downloads.
