    I have Myst III:Exile, on the case it says "PC/Mac CD-ROM", and under Sys. Req on the back, it asks for MacOS 8.1 or higher, 233MHz G3 or equivalent etc....but basically, will it run on a MacBook (1.8Ghz, 1Gb RAM) with Tiger fine?

    Sorry if it's a dumb question ;)

    Although that it requires OS Classic, it has been ported to OS X. You can find it if you google for the OS X update. As or the Intel Macs, the OS X version should work fine under Rosetta.

    Don't bother, it sucks.

    Myst = amazing, revolutionary
    Myst II = amazing, wonderful graphics
    Myst III = very beautiful, but terrible terrible game (made by different people)
    Myst IV = best game I've ever played

    I actually liked myst 3 more than myst 4. I really liked its environments and its riddles...

    Well, myst games in preference order go as follows:

    Myst 3
    myst 4
    Myst 5

    I've not played four or five. I really like three. It's beautiful.

    Sorry to hijack, but I have a quick question. If I've never played myst or riven could I get into myst III easily or am I missing key elements from the story and what not?

    There is a pack of Myst 1, 2, and 3 available out there for about $20, and it is worth every penny. The story really does not have much continuity between the three (well, nevermind, it is there), but it isn't integral. Going through the first two games is very exciting though....

    Riven was like one HUGE riddle.... and was the most confusing game I've ever played, but once things started getting rolling, it was excellent and very rewarding :)

    ... with that said, haven't jumped into 3, 4, or 5 yet.

    Riven definately was the most "involved" one as it was a step up from Myst i.e., not having the different ages. I liked it. It was one gigantic hard massive level. Myst and Myst III are like a beginning puzzle, with lots of littler puzzles.

    But you can't deny Myst III had a step up of beauty. It's absolutely amazing:D

    Anybody have any idea how to actually *install* this game on an Intel Mac? I understand that it will require Rosetta once I have the OSX patch 1.22 in place, but I can't even install it because the installer is OS9 only.

    Am I out of luck? I bought the game several years ago but never got around to installing it... (not much of a gamer) and I just found it and thought... why not? Well, the answer to "why not?" may be "Intel", eh?

    Is it possible for someone to send me the "installed" OSX version that I can just drag and drop to my machine. That would be just the app because all of the actual game data is on the 4 disks, right? Shouldn't bend too many rules, or would it?

    I'll be getting my MacBook tomorrow – I can install it on one of my other Macs and then transfer it to the MacBook. If it's just the app I need to send you it shouldn't be a problem. PM me with your e-mail address and I'll get back to you.
