Very Upset: Install Myth II CD-Rom for LINUX

Postby Lunarsickness » Fri Apr 28, 2017 4:35 pm

Hi guys I played the demo since I was a kid and I recently got back into the demo. I decided to buy Myth II on Ebay and I won the bid. I got it today and I just realized a stupid penguin on the cover and it says CD-ROM for Linux. I am not good with computers at all and I've been trying to install this for an hour on my laptop with Windows 10. I'm extremely upset and want to play the game. Somebody help. On Ebay it said the format was Mac/PC.

If you have laptop w/ Windows 10 then only to work Myth II Win/PC. // Linux and Mac are other systems many different of Windows.

So only to work myth II respectively:

Myth II Win/PC......Windows
Myth II Linux ........Linux
Myth II mac......... Macintosh

Besides that, for to run also need a update : http://tain.totalcodex.net/mythii/updates

You CAN use the Linux CD-ROM to install Myth II on Windows. This has been the case for a number of years now. You will have to do a manual installation of the Myth II data files, and then apply the latest Windows update. Melkor describes the process you need to follow here:

If you want cutscenes, you will need to download them from the Tain:

Since your disk is second-hand, you might also want to check the data integrity of the files on the CD-ROM. This thread can help you do that:
