Exile not available as Windows 7 download.

Postby futureboy » Sat Nov 15, 2014 12:59 am

Neither was Revelations, but I found out from a Microsoft list of product compatability issues, that Revelations didnt have any, so I loaded it and it works fine, but there was no entry for EXILE and it is not available to download for a more modern OS. Does anyone know if Exile will play just like Revelations? I dont want to just 'try it' in case it causes problems on my pc. Thanks

I have all the Cyan Myst-universe games installed and running on my (Windows 7 Home Premium) laptop.

Exile installed straight from the CD's. The last official update I have is 1.2, which is still available from Ubisoft

In my case, Revelation installed straight from the DVD. Last official update I have from Ubisoft is 1.02.

And End of Ages also installed straight from the DVD, but I then used the Myst5InitFiles fix from
http://cho.cyan.com/patches/Myst5InitFiles.zip

which fixes a startup problem.

The gog.com version runs just fine on Vista for me. It SHOULD work just fine on 7 as well. Not so sure about 8.

Neither Exile or Revelation are available for purchase legally atm, I guess unless you count the ten year old box copies, but those are out of production. This is because Ubisoft doesn't care about those games or Myst (which they never did) so its not a surprise that they aren't on GOG or Steam.

Ok, I looked back, and I guess I was running the disc version. Don't know why I was thinking I had bought it from gog.

Anyway, Exile from the CDs runs fine on Vista for me. Should run fine on 7 too. Again, can't say about 8. It's too different of an OS.

I DO know that Myst V runs on 8.

For Exile, one alternative is ResidualVM, which doesn’t require installation.

Adding support for Myst III: Exile to ResidualVM is nearly done. Now, we only need your help to find the last rough edges by playing the game thoroughly and reporting any issues you encounter.

Hmmm, I'm sure I have already said that Exile installs fine from the original CD's and runs for me on my Windows 7 Home Premium laptop..... No VM necessary

I've got the 10th anniversary DVD version loaded on my 8.1 machine, and so far so good. I only went as far as to follow Saveedro through the linking book, but it worked better that I thought it would. I also had it running well on an Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit machine with Wine and it was doing great there. No problems at all but I was stuck at the steam valves in Voltaic and I was trying to resist looking online for help when I installed 64 bit on the machine and forgot I had Exile on it. It ran much better than I've ever got MOULa to run on Ubuntu, which always runs choppy for me.

Hi,

Could anyone please tell me how to get Exile to run on Windows 10? I've tried compatibility for windows 7 and XP with no luck.

I got the games I could from GOG. With Obduction coming out soon I wanted relive Myst and brush up my deduction skills :)

I did get the game to install from the discs but that's all it will do.

Any help would be so appreciated!

Thank you,
Kaytee

I loaded the disks and got it installed. Then change to run as admin hoping that would help. When I click on the desktop icon a window pops up that says Do you want to allow this program to run. I say yes but nothing happens at all.

Does that help any?
