Topics I've Started


    18 April 2017 - 11:25 PM

    So I just spent about 2 weeks trying to get this %$@#&%$@#$%@#%$#$ game to work on Windows 10 and I think the stress took off about 10 years of my life. So today I'm going to share my solution to what truly seemed like an impossible problem.

    [ I N F O F O R N E R D S ]

    The Problem (I actually had a multitude of errors, but the primary two are):

    1. Doesn't recognize disc/"Insert disc" errors

    Solved with the crack, the game uses a version of SecureRom that is not compatible with W10. Due to forum rules I can't really provide much more help since it's a Myst4NoCD crack used for pirating, but you have the discs in your lap anyway, so you're good, right? Right? Right.

    2. Crashes immediately/black screen swirly for a second, then crash

    This is the real issue that took me weeks to solve. Event Viewer normally spits out either "ntdll.dll" or "dinput.dll"
    as the faulting module. Unfortunately for me, I didn't get a dinput error until the second week, which was the final hint I needed. I believe dinput.dll has to do with either DirectX and/or controllers such as joysticks. Unfortunately,
    if it is DX, you can't actually install the DX provided on the disc, as it is not supported on W10, but luckily for us,
    we can fix the other function of this .dll.

    The Solution!

    Disable as many generic "HID-compliant" and USB Input devices under the Human Interface Devices folder of the Device Manager. If it has a name referring to a specific device connected to your computer, keep it enabled.


    Once you have identified that this DOES allow Myst 4 to run, go back and begin to Enable these devices. Try to identify the singular culprit. If you skip this step, you may come back to a computer with a disabled keyboard and/or mouse on your next boot. I was able to narrow it down to a single device named "HID-compliant vendor-defined device". Your culprit my be named this as well.

    If this solution doesn't work for you, I also:

    -Installed/Reinstalled the game on every combination of Compatibility settings
    -Copied disc files to computer for faster install
    -Downloaded a fresh copy of the game

    -Cracked the .exe (this is probably required)
    -Virtually Mounted the Discs
    -Virtual Box Windows XP and 7
    -Reinstalled my OS
    -Tested the Myst 4 Demo (same faulting .dlls)
    -Disabled Internet Explorer 11

    I took these actions in this order, meaning I disabled IE 11 right before attacking my HID compliant devices, so this may have also been a part of the solution.

    Hopefully this documentation has been helpful and gets you in. Let me know if this works for you, or if you had to take some extra steps to get the game to run.

    Update: I believe this has something to do with additional drivers used by Gaming peripherals. If you have these issues, let me know if you also have Logitech/Razer hardware.

    Haha. Sorry, but I'm not related to Boxxy at all. I sort of wish I was. I've had the "xxy" for years, though, so she came after me. =P

    I knew, the moment I fell into the Fissure, that what I should really do from then on was to find some complete Stranger and get him to do all my work.
