Re: Errors in Riven

I suppose they could make the elevator not actually effect your elevation. As much as one would like to believe that it's a perfectly consistent world which would be able to piece together on a map 100%, games have to take these kinds of measures all the time - try fly mode in the original realMYST ...

Re: Final game title?

Hey, since it's Unreal Engine why don't we call it unrealRiven? :P I'm not sure "Masterpiece Edition" is enough. Myst: Masterpiece Edition is not realtime. That's realMyst's job. I'd prefer it be call realRiven if it didn't, as a previous poster mentioned, make the title look a bit odd. It...

Re: Answering your day/night cycle questions

I agree that Riven has a day and a night (although how long each of those lasts is anyone's guess!) Maybe Riven's day/night cycle is like a year long and that's why we never see it in the game. XD I can't see any reason why not to have moving clouds - in a realtime 3D environment it would make it t...

Re: Riven in wondowed mode

In Riven I think you can do it by pressing Alt, and choosing Windowed mode in the menu that appears at the top of the screen. In ScummVM you use Alt+Enter to switch. In RM:ME the option is in the interface - look in the settings by pressing Esc. Not sure if realMyst has the option, but if it doesn't...

Re: Which other games from the myst series can you recommend?

RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition is, IMO, a better attempt to remake Myst than the original realMyst. If you want Myst in realtime 3D, then get the Masterpiece Edition. It looks better and runs well on modern Windows. Riven is often cited as the best game in the series, and I can see why. Beautiful gra...

Temple Island's Layout

Is it just me or is Temple Island's layout just so confusing!? Not the puzzles on it, I understand the rotating room puzzle completely, but I mean the entire island as a whole and everything around the superdome. No matter how much I try and picture it in my mind I can't wrap my head around which pa...

Re: A Few Questions

I'm kind of disappointed about opting not to do the day and night cycles, because: 1) You're going to need to code the ability to change the sky anyway when it turns red at the end of the game. 2) realMyst did it. Part of the whole reason I want Starry Expanse is to see what Riven would look like if...

Re: Writing Ages

I actually asked this question once and got a nice answer back from a user named KefkeWren. This is taken from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RWA2sEElfs&google_comment_id=z124vxeodqmuznrh004cdborvtbncxzoong0k It's basically quantum mechanics. I won't get into the specifics, but the impor...

Re: Final game title?

I agree the word Riven needs to be at least somewhere in the title. The "Starry Expanse" can be there, but I consider the name Starry Expanse to link to the process of remaking the game in 3D - it should take a backseat to the game's actual title. I plan to eventually show this project to ...

Re: Final game title?

I think realRiven is a better title for a few reasons. To base an entire game and all its assets on Riven, and yet not even give credit to Riven in the final title, seems odd. Plus, it'd be nice to see the word realRiven in the original Riven font from MystFonts. However, I do think some mention of ...
