Myth II 1.5 Beta #2 Available
7:49 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Following quickly on yesterday's news regarding a new beta version of Myth II 1.5, PlayMyth has announced the release of this new candidate. Players should note this version of the beta is not network-compatible with either v1.4 or the earlier 1.5 Beta #1.

This second beta fixes a few outstanding bugs as well as adding a number of interface features and gameplay tweaks. Here are a few from the changelist:

MacOSX users can now play Myth in a window, with the game itself either being rendered in a window or fullscreen (see Preferences in Myth). Depending on demand, this feature may come to Microsoft Windows in a future update.

Under OS X, if Classic is running in an unstable state that would cause resolution switching problems with Myth later on ingame, Myth will now detect it before hand, and give a dialog box to the user explaining the error.

Networked co-op games will now show all the objectives in the mission, not just the first one as was previously the case.

Rendezvous now works for OS X (as an alternative to TCP/IP).

Myth will now remember the last IP address used for joining a TCP/IP game.

For the full changelist or to download the update, check out the links below.
