    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    Myst V has been released on both CD and DVD in the US.
    -- The Limited Edition has been released on DVD, for both PC and Mac.
    -- The Standard Edition has been released on CD, officially for PC only. However, the Standard Edition can be installed and run on the Mac. For details, look for topic titles starting with [Mac].

    The European Standard Edition and Collector's Edition are both on DVD only.

    There's apparently some Limited Edition packaging out there in the bushes that says the game is for Mac only. Not necessarily! If it's Myst V and it's on a DVD, it's a hybrid disk that will work with either Mac or PC.

    With Myst games, if you can't run the demo, you usually can't run the full game. If in doubt as to whether your PC can run Myst V, try downloading and playing the demo. This should tell you if your PC can NOT run Myst V, but being able to play the demo may NOT prove that you CAN run the full game. You won't know for certain whether you can run the full game until you buy it and try it!

    Here are some demo download links:
    -- Ubisoft
    -- Clubic
    -- Fileplanet
    -- Worthplaying

    DO NOT use a "download accelerator" or "download helper" utility when downloading the demo, since doing so can result in a corrupted download!


    NOTE: Both the demo and the full version of Myst V *will* run under Win 98SE and Me, as well as under Win 2000 and XP. Even though the System Requirements on the box and on the Ubisoft website call out Win 2000 and XP only, the full version of Myst V will run under Win 98SE and Me. (See Mark DeForest, Myst V Can Run on Old Windows.) However, for Win 98SE and Me problems, Ubisoft tech support most likely won't help you.

    POSTING GUIDELINES

    If you have a game-play problem (need hints, etc.) and not a technical problem, go to the Myst V End of Ages - General Discussion.

    If you have a technical problem, it may well already have been addressed. So please, before posting, do a search at:
    -- Ubisoft Support Center
    -- Ubisoft Support FAQ's
    -- Myst V: Where To Go For Help

    Posting a DxDiag report for your system will really help the folks here to assist you. It's hard to make recommendations if we don't know what your system looks like.

    To post a DxDiag report

    If you have already started a thread about your problem, please DO NOT start a new thread for your DxDiag report. Instead, post the report in your existing thread!

    1. Press keys (win) + R, or click on Start > Run.
    2. Type dxdiag in the box.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Let the blue bar in the lower left corner of the Dxdiag window finish crawling and disappear.
    5. Run all of the tests you can on the Display, Sound and Music tabs. Do not neglect to do this step!
    -- a. On the Display tab, click on the Test DirectDraw and Test Direct3D boxes, and follow the resulting instructions.
    -- b. On all of the Sound tabs, click on the Test DirectSound box, and follow the resulting instructions.
    -- c. On the Music tab, click on Test DirectMusic box, and follow the resulting instructions.
    6. Click on Save All Information.
    7. Close the DxDiag utility.
    8. Now you have a DxDiag.txt file on your Desktop, or in the location where you have saved it.
    Copy *ALL* of the contents of this file to the Windows Clipboard:
    -- a. Double-click on the file to open it.
    -- b. Right-click anywhere in the text, then click on Select All in the resulting menu.
    -- c. Right-click on the highlighted text, then click on Copy in the resulting menu.
    9. Paste the contents of the file from the Clipboard into a new post in your existing thread:
    -- a. Go to the bottom of the thread, and with the mouse cursor at the upper left corner of the Quick Reply box, type in any further details about your problem.
    -- b. Position the mouse cursor at the left margin and two lines down (press Enter to insert a line) from any further details, then right-click.
    -- c. Click on Paste in the resulting menu. Your DxDiag report should now be in the Quick Reply box.
    -- d. Click on Post Quick Reply to post.
    ----- 1. Check to ensure that the *entire* report has been posted. If the report was truncated, do a second Quick Reply to post the remainder.

    NOTE: If the manufacturer and exact model number of your PC aren't shown under 'System Information' (System Manufacturer and System Model) at the top of the report, also include that information in your post. Or, if you built your system or it was put together locally for you, include the manufacturer and exact model number of your motherboard.
