hi everyone. I'm Jedite83 and I want to get into speedrunning Myst. I remember as a kid in the 90's playing Myst with my dad. It's always been a favorite of mine. I remember shortly after finishing it the first time relising how easy it would be to just do the final puzzle and get through the game in only a couple of minutes. Every few years I fire up the game and play it for a bit to relive the nostalgia of my first favorite game.
This time when I go to play it I want to speedrun it and compair to other players. I am running it it windows xP (SP3) on Virtual Box. Is this setup allowed by the community?
It is allowed, but be aware that it is also slow.
There is a current version of the game (released by Cyan, so it is an official version) which has been modified to run natively in Windows 10 using ScummVM, and it is the accepted fastest version of the game. It is available on GoG (https://www.gog.com/game/myst_masterpiece_edition) and Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/63660/Myst_Masterpiece_Edition/).
