I never got to play Myst (original) and can't find one at a decent price. Will it even play on windows 7?

PATSY,

Gog.com has Myst Masterpiece Edition (don't know if that's the same thing or not) for $5.99 and the game description says it plays on Win 7.

PATSY,

I've got an extra original Myst I can send to you if you'd like to play it.

Just let me know!

Best,
Leigh-Anne

Hi Patsy, If I remember correctly, MYST Masterpiece edition is exactly the same game as the original MYST. The only addition is that it has a storyline of hints if you wish to use them. It Is RealMyst that has the additional world included.

I've been trying to play the Steam version of the original Myst on Win 7, 64-bit, with only limited success. The game crashes during certain animations, and never does display the fly-over videos.

Myst Masterpiece has 24-bit color (or 32-bit) and slightly better sound than the original Myst. It also used a later version of QuickTime.

Yes and No, the sound is technically better I suppose but the sound track is a cut version. The music plays in short sequenced loops in stead of the complete original from the original version of Myst, that is the original Mac version.

As far as I know RealMyst and Myst for iPhone has got the original sooundtrack back.

What about the PC version of the original Myst? (which is the one I played) Is that the full soundtrack or the cut version?

As far as I can remember the first PC-version is stumped too, and that's the reason for masterpiece also being stumped.

Had to do with conversion from Mac (the very first Mystversion) to PC.

In my opinion this is a serious thing as Robyn Millers music is a big part of the Myst experience.

I think there is info on the matter out there on the big web somewhere, at least it was... if you want to investigate the subject.

I have an old PC I forgot about Myst will play on it. I'm having a hard time with the one I downloaded from GOG.

I don`t know if this helps but I had problems with Sanitarium from GOG on Windows7 until I ran it as administrator by right clicking icon. Then it ran perfectly...
