Thanks Mad and Jenny. I finally found the place in my browser bar where I can see the download progress and yes, both items show "failed".

The few times I've downloaded something since using Firefox, I've never been able to see the progress and it made me crazy wondering how far along something was.

I wish I could know when my internet will stay good for awhile. I will have to call AT&T again one of these days as it is doing the same thing it did last year but not quite as predictably (is that a word?). Last year I could kind of know by the weather but this year I can't pinpoint it that way as well. It does seem like when the wind blows from a certain direction though. I have been keeping track now of how many days a month it works all day and how many days it doesn't. So far in March, it has been good for 7 days out of 16. If I unplug my modem for awhile then it will work again but I have tried a different modem with the same result. I know AT&T wants me to upgrade so they can charge me more money!

I also change my power options for the computer to never go to sleep... I leave that window open so I don't forget that I changed it. My download took 6 hours!!! I live in the country and have slowwwwww internet and if I did not change the power setting it would fail every time.

Hi Winfrey. I seem to get 1 GB per hour usually, so I am expecting at least 5 hours. I know it went for 4 hours last night which is on par. I could see the start and stop time when I hovered over the failed download. I don't have my computer set to sleep ever but the monitor does and I think it sometimes interferes with things.

I was finally able to get the game downloaded. Now what do I do with it?

I double clicked the zip file and got a Myth file folder with all the files in it. What do I do with that folder? Leave it there or move it someplace (where)?

Inside the folder is the Myth.exe (and a bunch of other files). Will the Myth.exe just start the game or will it install the game on my computer?

Thank you.

Hi Oldbroad,

Just open the folder and click the MYTH icon, the game should run.

Enjoy!

Did you unzip the file first, oldbroad?

Thank you SOLO.

I double clicked the zip file Draclvr. I believe that unzipped it as I then get the Myth folder with all of the files in it.

No, that won't unzip it. You have to right click the file and select "extract all."

Okay, I just did that and got the same exact folder as before when I double clicked it but this time the folder stays in the downloads folder where before I don't think it did. So now what? Do I leave the Myth folder in the Downloads folder or move it somewhere else (where?) or doesn't it matter?

Thanks.

Yes, it will look the same. But now it is no longer inside the "zipped" folder where the information is compressed.

It doesn't matter where it is. You can leave it right in the downloads folder if you want... that's what I do. Now you just open up the unzipped file and follow Solo's instructions from there. I don't know if there is a setup file or what is needed to actually install the game.

Okay. Thank you!

Not really sure. I guess I'll find out when I click the Myth.exe whether it installs or just starts playing.

Oldbroad, when you double-click a zipped file in Windows, Windows shows you what's inside the zip file and displays the contents of the zip as if it were in a folder. But it doesn't actually unzip the zip file.

Thanks Jenny100. I was just "getting that" in my brain while reviewing the posted information and seeing the folder staying in there versus not staying in there. Will I remember this next time? Don't know, but hope so!

Draclvr, I will update you later when I give it a go. I want to be ready to play if it opens up the game and I'm not ready just now.

The game did not do any installation. I played about a half hour and apparently I completed the first "trap" though I'm not sure exactly what I did to trigger it after setting it all up. I made 2 saves. I don't know where they go but I know they're in there because after closing out of the game, I went back in to make sure, so I guess all is okay.

In Windows 10 (probably the same for W7 or close) the Save games are located:

C:\Users\your name\Saved Games\Myth

Thanks Starcom. I found the Saved Games folder in the same folder my Downloads folder is in.

That is even better, thanks for letting me know oldbroad, enjoy the game, so far I am having fun with it... I am level 8 now, but will take a couple of days break from it for now.

Well, after all that trouble getting the game downloaded, I only played that first level. When I went back to the game today, Norton found an issue with it and I am not going to argue with Norton about it. If I keep overturning Norton's decisions, I might as well not have it, and I like Norton so...

There should be a way to put the game on Norton's exclusion list, but since I don't have Norton, I don't know how.

I remember years ago when I had the AVG antivirus, there were several games it blocked from running because it kept seeing false positives. I got disgusted with it after a while and ended up finding a new antivirus - I would have missed out on some good games otherwise.

Yes, but one day it may not be a false positive and I won't know and will allow it. Not worth that happening. I did okay it when I first downloaded it, but this was a different notification.

I'm with Marian on both counts: 1) Tell Norton to make an exception and 2) Don't miss out on games because Norton gives you a false positive or at the Very least contact Norton support and they will ask you to send some information and they will get back to you regarding whether it is a false positive or a true virus or malware.

I used both Kaspersky and Malwarebytes to fully scan all the game files and both of them found Zero maleware or virus.

You could also contact Solo and let him know and he will get back to you, he is very quick to respond to inquiries, when I contacted him on 3 seperate occasions he replied no later than the next day.

I had used both Norton and Malwarebytes on the download also and it was fine at that time. I've got more than enough other games to play.

Hi oldbroad and the forum,

I can 101% gaurantee you all that there is no virus or malware attached to the game files, as a process prior to going to Gold a developer has to confirm each individual file (MYTH has quite a few) is virus free and malware free so that no corruption of data can occur.
