    jerichammond,

    To install the 4-CD version and play it under Mac Classic:

    1) Insert MYST III: EXILE Disc 1 into your CD drive and double-click the "MYST III: EXILE Installer" program icon on the CD.
    2) Follow the on-screen instructions to install and play the game.

    To install and play Exile under Mac OS X, first do 1) and 2) above.

    3) Download and install the version 1.22 patch from this UbiSoft website.

    4) Download the "M3OSX1.sit" file from the same site. Extract the Myst 3 OS X and Bink Carbon Library files from the M3OSX1.sit file. Then place them in the Myst 3 folder. You can delete the original Myst 3 Exile (US) and the Bink Shared Library, as they are no longer needed to run in OS X.

    If you have a dual-CPU Mac, I have found that one CPU needs to be turned off, to avoid breaks in the audio about every second or so. Running on only one CPU, Exile plays fine.

    I've updated the above link. That 4 CD install procedure is now available here. With pictures, and there's also a troubleshooting guide!

    Thanks for the info and updates. The "EXILE" in caps, and copying all files for each disk were important. The dual processor thing helps a lot too.
    It now runs well.

    Oops, Sorry....I spoke too soon. I left disk 2 in the drive when testing, once disk 2 is out the game asks for disk 2. I copied ALL the files (now looks different from the picture) from each disk into the corresponding "EXILE Disk" folder.
    What have I missed?

    Thanks, Eric

    Bink Carbon Library
    EXILE Disc 1
    EXILE Disc 2
    EXILE Disc 3
    EXILE Disc 4
    Myst3 Exile Prefs
    Myst3 OS X US
    readme.txt
    Saved Games

    My Myst III Exile folder looks like this (showing hidden files):
    Bink Carbon Library
    EXILE Disc 1
    EXILE Disc 2
    EXILE Disc 3
    EXILE Disc 4
    M3Data
    Myst3 Exile Prefs
    Myst3 OS X US
    README 1.22
    readme.txt
    Saved Games
    Each EXILE Disc x folder has:
    Data
    Desktop DB
    Desktop DF
    Desktop Folder
    Icon
    TheVolumeSettingsFolder

    If the M3Data folder is not there the program crashes.


    Just to make sure I am on the right page, I am running:
    MacBook Pro 17
    Mac OS X 10.5.7
    2.66GHz intel core 2 duo
    4GB ram.

    If I show invisible files, my Myst III Exile folder looks mostly like yours, except that each of my Disc x folders has only a ".DS Store" file, and no "Desktop DB" or "Desktop DF" file, nor does it contain "TheVolumeSettingsFolder."

    My system is a PPC 2.7 GHz dual CPU G5 running Mac OS X v10.4.11.
