Re: Greek Plugin- Thermopylae solo v1.0

As you say it's a beta I'll mention a few things. The mesh doesn't show after the plugin is activated - from memory, I think a mesh needs the 01 prefix for it to show without having been played previously or holding down shift. The first map has "Thermopylae pass." - I'm not an expert in E...

Re: Looking For a certain Bungie video. The History of

Yes there really ought to be a video repository for myth-related things, whether official interviews like that or notable fan-made creations. I remember an old early-2000s era flash vid featuring dancing mauls, warlocks flying on a fireball, Pallor singing & other stuff, very funny it was. Coul...

Re: TFL Complete Mission Cut Scenes

The original material was 4:3 so you may want to redo the uploads with a 4:3 middle crop instead of 4:3 letterboxed into 16:9, as 4:3 letterboxed into 16:9 stands out like a sore thumb on displays with other aspect ratios. There are these http://www.mythjournals.com/ http://myth.bungie.org/legends/j...

Re: What did/do you love and hate about the Myth games?

Positives... * Nearly all games today have in-game control screens that look daft with bits jutting out to try and be "cool" or something. Bungie didn't make that mistake. * Like Marathon, Myth has an excellent music score. In most games the music is either fluff, kitsch, extremely melodra...

Re: Tain and .7z

I was not advocating 7z replace Zip on The Tain. I mentioned the cost of satellite bandwidth because Point is on it and it can easily cost as much as US$15/ GB (in case he didn't realise that).

Re: Tain and .7z

You do know that bandwidth can be extremely expensive for many satellite internet connections? The compression ratio is about 2% worse if you use the "normal" 7zip settings for LZMA instead of the best. The word size setting needs to be increased to the maximum even after selecting "U...

Re: Tain and .7z

I agree they should be available in Zip. But I think The Tain should allow a 7z download link in addition to Zip for the largest files. zffapackfinalv3 = 348mb ...with standard zip deflate compression = 157mb ...with best zip deflate compression = 153mb ...with best LZMA 7z compression = 121mb

Re: Myth TFL Beta 5 CD

Re: Myth TFL Cinamatics without cd?

CUTSCENE.GOR also works with Myth II + The Fallen Levels; the Myth TFL Quicktime cutscenes are specifically for Myth II on some Mac computers (and Linux?) where the original smacker cutscenes won't play. Could that Tain entry please be updated to be more specific about which platforms the Quicktimes...

Re: my computer turns off in the middle of playing

Spontaneously turning off may mean a faulty PSU or bad capacitors on the motherboard.

Install HWMonitor and see what kind of temperatures your CPU is running at while under load.

Diablo III is hours of WoW-style mouse click pounding and token-grabbing with the odd piece of bad voice acting in between.
