what do i do when it says to click on the book after it falls and i can't click on it? the book falls, i go to click on it and nothing but a black screen appears. then there appears in the upper right hand corner, a little blue screen with birds. I go to click on it and nothing happens, I am totally clueless as to how to get the book opened if my mouse disappears into the darkness of the game and I can't click on the book. PLEASE HELP ME?!!! :D :cheesy:

Sounds to me like you are only seeing the movie of the gulls, which is a small part of the integrated scene you should see after clicking on the panel in the book. Why the movie loads but not the static part of the card, I don't know. Anybody?

computer incompatibility issues?

Or perhaps something is missing?

What version of Myst is this? And did it come from the 10th anniversary set?

I had this same problem, I know how to fix it. Do you have the 10th anniversary edition that comes with Riven and Exile as well, because I can't guarantee this solution will work otherwise.

Anyway, the problem is in fact Quicktime. While Riven and all other Myst games will run on Quicktime 9 (or whatever Quicktime we are on), Myst will not. Uninstall Quicktime and install the 6.3 version that comes on the Myst game disc. Itunes and some other Quicktime applications won't work as long as you have a downgraded version of Quicktime, but Myst will run perfectly.

Just go to the apple's website and find quicktime when you need to reinstall the updated version again.

Bumping a 6 month old thread already makes you look bad.
