Complete Installation Instructions for Windows PLEASE!

Postby smenti » Sun Jul 24, 2016 2:37 am

First of all thank you for looking at this.

I had to uninstall Myth 2 the other day and after downloading it again I can't get it to update to 1.8. I can play 1.72 but whenever I try to update it, it says I don't have a version of Myth installed.

I would like to have full instructions on how to install and properly update Myth 2 (from step 1 PLEASE) because I would love to join everyone in the multiplayer battles! I would love it and greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with my issue.

Smenti,

You must have 1.8.0 already installed before installing the 1.8.1 beta ..

understood ? if you have 1.7.2 update for 1.8.0 after you do update 1.8.1 beta (you know what it is beta? It means a test version and when you playing the myth 1.8.1 B , having any problem, report bugs here : http://tain.totalcodex.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6922)

To see the detailed list of changes, consult the ReadMe here:

Thank you for replying.

I don't think you understand my issue. I can't get it to update to version 1.8. No need for 1.8.1 yet. I don't have the disc, so perhaps that is the issue? I downloaded the installer for 1.8 from Project Magma. But when I try to extract it to my Myth II folder it says I do not have a version of Myth II installed, even though I can still play 1.72. Let me know if I am not clear enough.

the installation of Myth Windows is automatic and very simple, no reason not to work, most likely the issue is you don't have a CD full version of Myth II installed ... :| keep trying and give us comeback.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Yeah it seems very user friendly, I also believe it is because I got rid of all of my Myth II files. Where do I get a full install of Myth II so I can update it? Or must I have the CD? I managed to get it withouth the CD, but that was soooo long ago I don't remember how. I still have the Total Codex installation disc and the TFL disc.

Julio please don't reply to these threads if you don't understand the question exactly.

Smenti, when you run the updater, it asks you to choose the folder where myth is already installed. Then it checks inside that folder for the existence of certain files. If it doesn't find them, then you get the message about not having a version of myth installed.

So it sounds like you are choosing an incorrect directory when you run the installer.

The contents of your myth II directory should look something like this:
local
plugins
preferences
tags
Myth II.exe
