I thought it would. M3 uses OpenGL and I thought V-2 was OpenGL compliant with the 3Dfx extension set. Now if M3 used multiple windows, then a V-3 would be necessary (although V-3 drivers for the Mac contain generate fifo errors when drawing to multiple windows).

Note that if you have a MicroConversions Game Wizard V-2, you'll need to install the 3Dfx drivers, minus GlideLib2.x (use the Game Wizard Glide 2 extension) to get OpenGL support. Oh, and rip out all the Mesa drivers (heh). Not many people bought $300 8Mb Game Wizards when 12Mb PC-version V-2 cards were less than $50 retail.

Not to get into Mac vs PC smurf, but that was just hella-stupid.

As long as you're not running OSX, you should be fine with any old Voodoo card. Otherwise, look into an old Rage 128 card (IMO, a G3/266 coupled with a Radeon is a waste...of the Radeon).

Re: The basic old question: can my comp run it?

Not sure how much this will help you since I'm on PC, but I have a 475MHz with a voodoo3, and I can almost have the graphics up to the top 20%, and it still runs fast (except with tons of units onscreen).

Well, the site is pretty much done, just not sure how to maintain it. I'm not sure if Altima still wants to take over or not. I'm sure it'll be back online at some point.

Worried about my li'l old Rage Pro 128

I have a G4/400/256 with OS 10.1. After reading that this game taxes the same computer with a Radeon, and a little more RAM, I got concerned that I'll have to play the game with all effects turned off.

A lot of Mac users don't have much of an array of choices with video cards, so I'm wondering how many people out there are kind of worried.

Any thoughts on this.....

I bought Myth 3 and I tried playing it on my computer with a
Rage 128 Pro. It didn't work. It may be because my computer
tends to not work but I have my doubts that's why. I just
had a new video card installed at Best Buy but they stole my
copy of Myth 3 while installing the card. :( However, my new
card works wonders on other games.

I got a G4/ 350 mHz/ 384 RAM and a ATI Rage 128y and im worried too. Will that work? I mean with that low mHz.

No. "Rage" is the series of cards ATI made before Radeon. They progress through Rage, Rage II, Rage II plus, Rage IIc, and Rage 128.

The Rage 128's minimal video memory is probably a bigger factor; but I may be wrong on that count.

Thanks Narco! The memory is at 16mb.

In Gamespots interwiew with Scott Campbell on E3 he says that you can run the game on a slower machine (mHz) if you have a "Hi-Fi-hardware-acceleration-card". Are Rage 128 a Hi-Fi-hardware-acceleration-card?

Uhmm... I doubt it. My rage 128 has trouble with DiabloII expansion. It might just be my os 10.0.4..... (the apple bastards are shafting everyone like me through charging for 10.1) Also I have an imac, so i cant get a better card. I think that boils down to me being screwed til i get a new comp. Oh well... I will still have the Xbox to keep me busy for now.

A Suggestion For The Coming Times

With the xBox coming out tomorrow, this forum and others will more then likely start getting filled with posts.

See as not everyone will be playing Halo at once, and those that are will be going at different paces, I have an idea to help keep people from spoiling it for others.

instead of titles like "OMG LISTEN TO THIS(SPOILER)"
try putting the level number(or whatever is a good way of braking up the game into sections) in the subject, that way people know that if they haven't gotten that far, to not read :-)

yes I know you're all smart and have thought of this, I'm just stating the obvious blah blah blah.
but humor me :-)

Earendil

ps
got a better idea share it, too many levels for separate forums. oh well, no big deal :-)

You're probably going to need a 400 MHz G3 processor, 200+ MB RAM, and a good video card.

No TCP/IP option = frustration ( Rant on Take-Two)

I can't for the life of me see why one would want to use GameSpy, except as a time & money saver.... Drop their material into your game, interface with it, and viola! Instant multiplayer.

However, I'm a big fan of options, and of developers which provide those options well. This is, sadly, consistent with the judgement of whomever decided to handle other aspects of Myth III... according to the reviews I've read so far. The game needed more dev-time, better testing, more polish and perhaps just a little bit of assistance from above. Instead, it seems that Take Two laid the pressure on, heavily, and couldn't wait to kick the team out the door.

Makes me kinda glad that Bungie is no longer beholden to Take Two... they are actually in a much superior position, believe it or not, with Microsoft. All things being relative.

Myth III Solo Demo

Anonymous's picture
It's got

The Nest and Siege of Llancarfan. The funny thing is, if you beat Siege it plays the epilogue to the game. Not sure if that's intended, but it's not the whole ending anyway just the bit that alludes to the TFL storyline. No coops are possible.

The demo looked ugly compared to the actual game to me, but I didn't bother to change any display options so that probably explains it. It'll be up at CPHL in a bit for anyone who wants it, I have to say it's probably a better example of the game than the Multi demo. Also, FYI, the version was 1.02 from (IIRC) Nov. 12th.

Classic Map Pack

Figured I'd give a short status report, name some meshes, (save people the effort of porting maps already done/in progress).

At least half of the maps are in final testing now, and I must say that the Myth III engine really makes these beautiful. Never realized that 240 color maps could have been acceptable. After seeing these classics in-engine, you'll certainly agree.

Confirmed Meshes

I'll Dance on Your Grave
I'll Dance on Your Spiderweb
Desert Between Your Ears (TFL)
If I Had a Trow... (TFL)
Mudpit Massacre (light)
Mudpit Massacre (dark)
Gimble on the Wabe
Gyre on the Wabe
Drowned Kingdom
Drowned Empire

Probably included...
Desert Between Your Ears (Myth II mesh)
If I Had a Trow... (Myth II mesh)

Potentially included
2 unnamed maps (4 meshes)
2 TFL maps

Never to be ported by the myth III team or Vista
Giant Fighting Grounds Titanium, Gold, Silver, or even Tin
If I had a clue...
Raid (period, end of sentence)
16 inches and accumulating... (yeah, i know that one will be missed)

So, as you can see, we've been busy little beavers. Our plan is currently to have these done in time for the 1.1 Patch or the Mac release. They'll be done when they're done (of course), but based on the progress, I'd have to say that this "ain't no jinnkatana". We're on track for meeting our deadlines, and look forward to greeting Mac users with a whole lot of lovin.

We'll probably leak a few shots of our progress soon, and again to repeat... We will NOT be porting RAID. Have a nice day.

I just tested it myself-- when previewing or posting with an unmodified name line, you get an error from the system and no message is posted.

If you add a space on the end... it works.

So why this one was posted, I'm not sure.

No, my .sig is automatic...

Are you deleting everything in the comment text box, though?

The .sig is imported into the content text input area, not appended to the post after you submit.

We could make it work that way,though.
