Let’s Play Myth Co-op #11 Silvermines

March 26th, 2016
Myth TFL: Silvermines

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous games, the Real Time Tactics fantasy wargame, Myth. Set in a mysterious land of cyclical war and destruction, Myth lets you command a ragtag army in a desperate battle against the forces of the Fallen Lords.

A lone journeyman must lead us to retrieve the 2nd most attached arm of the 3rd most powerful sorcerer in history from the hole it got buried in.

Starting with this episode we're joined by Ooga Booga, one of the authors of the high definition tagset, Myth Myth HD Total Conversion v1.31 which provides higher resolution units. (The other authors are Renwood and Road.)

You can get the HD Conversion here:

Due to the tireless work of many community members over the years, the Myth engine has been modernized to work on current operating systems, although you'll still need a copy of the game's data files to play. Check Ebay.

For the engine itself as well as texture enhancements, go to Project Magma:

There's also multiplayer metaserver available for competitive carnage:

A bunch of other Myth-related downloads are available at The Tain:

Intro and outro Music "Into the Breach" by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori from Myth The Fallen Lords.

Myth developed by Bungie Software Corporation, currently trademark owned by Take Two.

Whatever your thoughts are on the guy's approach to videos, there's no lie in saying he did tons for the Halo speedrunning community.

One of the good things from IGN's interestingly conducted interview with Marty O'Donnell was the talks of the original ending of Halo 2. There's info we've heard before (the Arbiter was going to be the Dervish), but plenty of new info as well to the original ending of Halo 2! (Thanks Grizzlei!)(MacGyver10 21:21:04 UTC)

All REQ Halo 5 Assassinations

March 22nd, 2016
Our forum denizen bryan newman took the time to film the assassinations in Halo 5 and combine them into one big video. While some of the audio clips and images can be a little distracting, it is nice to not have every assassination slowed down to super-thirty-second-long-slo-mo like every other version out there!(MacGyver10 21:18:07 UTC)
