windows 10 installation from cd not working

Postby gollum » Mon May 02, 2016 2:05 pm

I have the mythII soulblighter mac and windows cd-rom, and I wanted to install on a friends windows 10 machine. However the installer just hangs and quits without doing anything. I tried setting the cd autoplay program to function in windows 95 compatibility mode, but this had no effect. Do any of you fine people have any suggestions? I found a recent post here reporting the same problem when someone had to reinstall myth II after updating to windows 10, so pretty sure I'm not the only one.

I don't know the windows side of Myth installing that well, but on the mac side, the latest updater comes with a built in installer, so you don't have to use the installer on the disk. It may be the case for the windows side, try it out. If not, someone here can fill you in.

Hi Jon.. I have the mac version installed on my mac using the 1.8 installer. The windows 1.8 updater requires installation first direct from the cd, using the cd installer. this is the process that I can't get to work unfortunately. has anyone else tried installing on windows 10?

I haven't installed Myth on a Windows 10 PC, but you can still do a manual install. First create a "Myth II" folder where ever your installation is meant to go like "Program Files (x86)" or other place. Then open up the CD and copy/paste the "tags" folder from the CD into that new Myth II folder. Then run the latest Myth II update and make sure it knows the address of that Myth II folder so it can update it. That is all you need.

You can download the cutscenes from the Tain if you want to complete the experience for single player. Just search for "cutscenes" at the Tain to find the Myth II and Myth TFL cutscenes. They go in the "cutscenes" subfolder in your Myth II folder.
