Myth II Version 1.7 is the latest result of the community-based effort to continue the tradition of improving the game. Myth II runs better than ever with accelerated hardware rendering on both Windows XP and Mac OS X platforms, while keeping support for the hardware it was originally designed for. Overall game responsiveness has been improved, and many old causes of crashing and out-of-sync gameplay have been eliminated. Dozens of annoying bugs and oddities have been fixed, making this update the most stable ever - rendering the Myth experience that much more enjoyable.

A full list of new features and updates for v1.7 can be found here. You do not need to download any previous patch before v1.7.

The demo has been been updated as well to include all the latest 1.7 features including detail textures for the playable maps.

Highlights

Taking full advantage of the new detail texturing system available in Myth II 1.7, Project Magma is proud to present Bungie Map Textures. Bungie Map Textures is an optional add-on plugin featuring detail textures for all the original Myth II solo and multiplayer maps.
