How To Properly Install And Update Myth 2 (Mac & PC)

NOTE: If you still have problems after reading this, post your mythlog, hardware specs, etc.

MAC
The Mac installer can update any previous version of Myth II to version 1.7.1 and can also be used to install and update Myth II directly from the original CD

- For the AUTOMATIC install and update, pop in the CD, then open the Myth II 1.7.1 Installer, and choose the first option. Then simply sit back and wait for it to complete. You're all set
Image

- For the MANUAL install and update, pop in the CD and when it spins up open it. You should see a folder called 'Myth II ƒ'. Drag that folder onto your desktop
Image

- Drag the 'tags', 'cutscenes', and 'plugins' folders from the M2 CD into/onto your 'Myth II ƒ' folder. It will say there's already folders in there with the same name. REPLACE them all. This will take a little bit since you're copying 620 MBs
Image

- Remove the two Bungie Web Site docs, SMACKW32.DLL, and network only file; you don't need/want them
Image

- You now have a full install of Myth 2. But you now have to get it updated

- When you download the 1.7.1 installer, choose the second option
Image

- Just follow it's step by step directions. Make SURE you are installing to the proper Myth 2 folder
Image

- After all the updating is done, you can then move the Myth folder to wherever you want and rename it whatever you wish


WINDOWS
To make sure we aren't mixing up other versions or whatever, use Add/Remove Programs to COMPLETELY remove M2 from your system. After that open your "Program Files" folder and check to make sure there isn't a M2 folder or ANYTHING the uninstaller left.

- Pop in the CD and run the installer
Image

- Use the default install path
Image

- When asked for what type of install, use Large Install. Let it do it's thing
Image

- After installation completes and BEFORE opening the game, download and run the M2 Updater (1.7.1 currently)
Image

- Make SURE you are still using the default install path
Image

- Choose which build suits your machine
ImageImage

- Once that completes, you should be just fine with an up to date version of Myth 2

-----------------------------------

One final thing, to get the most of out Myth's graphics capability, make sure you set your Graphics Renderer to OpenGL, with Anisotropic Filtering and Landscape Textures enabled. If you experience any problems running OpenGL, please report it here.
