Let’s Play Myth II: Soulblighter Co-op #20 A Murder of Crows

June 3rd, 2017 by narcogen
Myth II A Murder of Crows

We're playing the next of Bungie's famous franchises, 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.

The Summoner eliminated, Soulblighter takes us and the Deceiver prisoner. We must escape!

In this episode we're once again using the high definition tagset, made by Ooga Booga, Renwood and Road. The Myth Myth HD Total Conversion v1.31 provides higher resolution units.

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:

http://projectmagma.net/

There's also multiplayer metaserver available for competitive carnage:

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

Info on the Myth HD Total Conversion is here:

You can also download it from OSXCoopGames here:

June 1st, 2017 by halo@bungie.org
Guess the cyborg is more machine than man, or maybe a flood infection form went all 'Alien' on the Chief and burst through his chest cavity. Either way, who knew a PC was inside that spartan armor of his!(MacGyver10 13:54:54 UTC)
