Thanks so much Ana and Jenny! I appreciate your help---especially knowing that I could switch to 1st person in Uru if I wanted to.
Hi again. I just wanted to get in touch again because I'm having a heck of a time getting the game to install. I was wondering if anyone else uses GOG and if you might've had this problem too? I've emailed the site administrators and left a post on their forums but I thought I'd write and ask you guys too.
EDIT 2: Okay guys. Just wanted to let you know that I finally DID get Myst V to work under Windows 7! Yay! I've been having such fun---this is a beautiful game and the guy that acts as your guide looks and seems very real to me---amazing since the game is like 7 years old.
Anyway, just wanted to give ya the good news and thanks for bearing with my ups and downs tonight.
EDITING Once More!
I just wanted to post and say that I've just been playing Myst V and am in the age called Tighira (sp?) It's so pretty and unusual looking and I've just been watching the snow fall, wishing I could climb into one of those big, round tree-things with the leaves on top and make a little home for my character! SIGH!! After thinking that I wasn't going to be able to play this last night it's a joy to be getting into it this morning.
Now I'm wondering if anyone ever thought of making mods for Myst games---or if that's even legal? lol If it ever is, I'll have to have someone make me a little house because I'm just in love right now. Wow.
Tracy, who realized belatedly that she still loves Cyan, Myst-stuff, AND Rand Miller. Yum!
