Myth 1 - 1.5 Win7-64b, black screen, only sound.

Postby ruthan » Sun Sep 18, 2016 1:27 pm

Hello,
i installed Myth on Win 7 64bit and 1.5 patch, after 1.3.

But now i have black screen and only sound and controlls working, because of my fucked memory im not 100% sure (i have dualboot with XP), but i think that it worked before..

I have lastest Nvidia drivers installed - Geforce 970 and nGlide 1.0.5 installed, maybe 32 GB RAM and 4GB VRAM could be too much.

Could someone help me? :(

Realistically on a modern system you'll have more luck with running vTFL in Myth 2 1.8. Myth 1 simply hasn't seen much attention due to that option, and I would not be particularly surprised if it is somewhat broken on modern systems.

Out of curiosity, I installed Myth TFL on the following systems:

Compaq Presario CQ5110F Desktop
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 32-bit
Athlon 7550 Dual-Core 2.5 GHz
3 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 210 w/ 340.52 Driver

Dell Inspiron N5110 Laptop
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Intel Core i3-2310M Dual-Core 2.10 GHz
8 GB RAM
Intel HD 3000 Graphics Adapter w/ 8.15.10.2361 Driver

Gateway NE56R12u Laptop
Windows 8.1 Professional 64-bit
Intel B950 Pentium Dual-Core 2.1 GHz
8 GB RAM
Intel HD 2000 Graphics Adapter

I updated to Version 1.3 and then Version 1.5. I also set compatibility on the executable for Windows 98/Windows ME. I had no problem running the game in either Software or OpenGL mode, although OpenGL would not go full-screen (it appears to want to run in a 4x3 mode). The game even worked in Version 1.3 Software mode.

I didn't play extensively, but punkUser may be right about some aspects not working. You might check out the installer mentioned in this thread (if you don't mind living with Version 1.3):

Yup I didn't mean to discourage you from trying if there's some reason you prefer to avoid vTFL. I'm just saying this is not unexpected and it will likely continue to get worse with further technology updates as no attempt is really being made to keep it working at this point.
