I was disappointed that my shiney new Myst 10th Anniversary Edition Riven DVD didn't work on Windows 2000. I've been looking around the net trying to find out more information but all I could find was that it would start if you only had quicktime 3 installed, but when I tried it the movies were lagging and went black sometimes and the video would freeze sometimes.
Someone on a forum suggested that you'd take the Riven CD 1.02 exe. And that actually works perfectly except for the fact that you can't load any saved games.

The Myst Masterpiece edition patch from mysterium.ch worked perfectly but I haven't found any patch that makes Riven DVD run correctly on W2k yet.

Last night I sat down and made a small modification to the Riven DVD exe file that makes it use Quicktime 2 instead of version 3.

So far I haven't had any problems running it under windows 2000 using my patch.

I figured I better make my fix available so here I am now posting on the Ubi forums.

Here's a link to the download page: http://amoebasoft.mine.nu/files/rivendvd
