* The Cyan logo repeats some frames at the end. I call it "Cyan logo syndrome." This is caused by the lack of handling of multiple edit lists. FFmpeg doesn't handle this yet either.

Main Mohawk TODO

Video

  • Some Cinepak frames have corruption.
    • The Myst linking book video on D'ni has a corrupted Cinepak frame (data-wise). Right now, we just skip that frame (and throw a warning). It looks like QuickTime does this too.
    • The CD (but not the DVD) version of Riven has at least two videos with a corrupt frame: the wood chipper (when power is directed elsewhere) and using the trap book before talking with Gehn (when not on Tay).
  • Myst's fortress rotation holo-simulator requires playing QT movies with edit lists backwards. For now this is hacked around in the Mechanical code so that the puzzle works properly.

Myst Status

The game is completable to all four endings.

Known issues

  • Myst ME 10th Anniversary Edition requires Sorenson Video 3 for the UbiSoft logo
    • Since SVQ3 is quite large (and based on h.264), we may suggest the user just take the video from the Macintosh portion of the disc, which is QTRLE
  • The help system is missing in Myst ME
