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.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.

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.
