Myst: Do not play fullscreen Myst Island flyby
|Reported by:||mgiuca||Owned by:||bgK|
Game: Myst Masterpiece Edition (GOG version, June 2018)
OS: Windows 10
Type of bug: Departure from original game behaviour
Steps to reproduce:
- Start a new game.
- Watch the introduction where the book falls onto the ground.
- Click the book.
- Watch the small video of flying to the island and landing on the dock.
- Click the linking panel.
Expected behaviour: Black screen, then arrive on Myst island.
Actual behaviour: A second full-screen video is shown of flying to the island and landing on the dock. This is redundant and feels weird with only the wind sound heard in the background.
Note: I am aware that this second full-screen video was included on the original Myst Masterpiece edition CD-ROM. However, it was never hooked up in the game, for good reason: unlike all the other Age fly-by videos (which are loops, and therefore represent "zooming up" the looped image on the book page), the Myst Island one is a non-repeatable video. It doesn't make sense to play essentially the same video twice.
