Just a quick note.

I did start Real Myst and the graphics are very good (at least on my 24" monitor) and I like that you
have the option as to how to move about - the standard Myst point and click or using the mouse combined
with WASD keys to move about.

This game brings back memories as it was the very first adventure game I bought.

Jenny100 - I don't know if the forum I mentioned would help but there are quite a few people posting
with information. And when I posted my question I received a very quick reply.

Good luck.

Robert

Most information in that thread is for people who've already received codes.
All they have is excuses for people who haven't received their codes.

I guess you're right about the forum. Sorry, I thought it was worth a try.

You're probably already aware of this but just in case, I thought I'd mention where I received my
game code from, which was backers@cyan.com.

Most of the other blackbox mail I received was from mail@blackbox.com

Email from GOG this morning told me they have re-instated the code, and that all the (remaining six) would be available for download.

Sure enough, it's true. I have successfully downloaded one of them, and will soon get the others. Thanks, GOG.

Now I hope they rewrite the code so that it is more intuitive; checking one of multiple boxes should not discard the unchecked ones.

Looks like some people are getting warnings about trojans in Myst IV when using antivirus.
Norton detects Heur.AdvML.B
Windows Defender detects Trojan:Win32/Zpevdo.A

Reported at GOG
https://www.gog.com/forum/general/myst_ivrevelation_trojanwin32zpevdoa
https://www.gog.com/forum/myst_series/unable_to_run_myst_iv_revelations

and the forum rmelone linked to at
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1252280491/myst-25th-anniversary-collection/comments

And I still have not received GOG codes.
Which bodes ill for any physical "rewards" I'm supposed to receive from this Kickstarter in the future.

Sounds like a real mess! Jenny, didn't you have a similar problem with some other Kickstarter a few years back?

If you're talking about not receiving any physical rewards for Dreamfall Chapters, I still have yet to receive anything from them.

Wow! Are you still trying to get the Dreamfall stuff or is that a lost cause now?

I hope that doesn't happen with Myst also.

"I think this is the last time I donate to a Kickstarter" This here sounds like a plan!

I've given up on ever seeing anything from the Dreamfall Chapters kickstarter.

Other people spent even more than I did on the Dreamfall Chapters Kickstarter and have also received nothing.

At the current time I wouldn't compare Cyan (so far late by a week with game codes) with Dreamfall Chapters (late by years).

However this is the first time GOG has had the games for sale before I received the game codes.
In the past I received the codes first and could pre-order at GOG even before the game was available.

Jenny

I received an email from Cyan customer support about the fact that I didn't receive a code for
Myst V which I had purchased from GOG back in May and they sent a code for a free Myst V to give
to a friend.

Being I received the message I asked about your problem and, I know this is going to sound very
familiar but there is one thing - I think - a little different in that they say look for your codes
this week.

Hi Robert,

Codes are still being distributed. It takes a bit of time to get 19,000+ codes emailed. Please ask your friend to have a bit more patience (we understand it's not easy to wait, trust us, we do), and to look for his email with the Myst 25 games code this week.

Best,
Lloyd Woodall
Cyan Worlds Customer Support


I was hoping for a more direct contact that people that hadn't received codes yet that they could use but this is what I got.

Robert

Lot of people still waiting hopefully for Dreamfall Chapters going by that link.

Way too soon for comparison; just sounds disappointing and frustrating not to be getting your codes yet though. frown

Thank you for trying to help, rmelone.
Cyan support doesn't seem to have control of when the codes are sent out and are depending on some other company, possibly Blackbox, to send out the codes.

Still no GOG codes. I suspect what will have to happen is that I'll have to wait until Cyan thinks they've sent out all the codes and then alert them to the fact that they haven't.

I think that if you had to "prod" blackbox to send you an email about their "survey" by going to
https://backers.blackbox.cool/myst-25th-anniversary-collection
before receiving the survey email from them, that you will never receive the GOG codes without special help from Cyan -- and that Cyan won't help until they think all codes are already sent out.

+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+

But in other news, 3 years and 8 months late, I finally received the "Collector's" DVD of Dreamfall Chapters today. However it wasn't what was described during the Kickstarter.

Originally it was described like this on ***the Kickstarter page***:
Quote:
BOXED COLLECTOR'S EDITION • Get a boxed DVD copy for your collection! • Includes a beautifully designed COLLECTOR'S EDITION BOX and printed instruction manual!

And then from ***this update webpage***
Quote:
The Collector's Edition ($110) comes in a beautiful slipcase containing a DVD keep case with an instruction manual. The slipcase and keep case feature a unique and beautiful cover designed by art director Christer Sveen.

What I received was not a box, or even a sleeve over a DVD case.
It is a plastic DVD holder glued to folded over cardboard, about half the thickness of a normal DVD case, or 1/4 the thickness of one of the small game boxes they started using in the early 2000's. It looks like the one on the following Kickstarter webpage
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redthread/dreamfall-chapters-the-longest-journey/posts/2063474
though maybe smaller than you'd expect -- the height and width of a DVD case or small game box, but much thinner.

There is no printed instruction manual included.

This is what you get for donating "$110 or more" to Dreamfall Chapters. I'm lucky it wasn't bent or accordionized the way most cardboard things arrive when they are shipped in a thin, flattened bubble envelope like this one was. I'm also lucky I didn't donate any more than I did.

But after all this time, I'm surprised to receive anything at all from them.
