What works

All of the graphics are rendering perfectly. All the cinemas and game-play elements worked as intended. The sound quality is good but is slightly out of sync.


There is a corrupt file that causes the game to crash right at the end sequence. The fix is explained in the how-to. The game now completes without issue.

What does not
Nothing all works fine as long as you fix the Pageloop file as explained in the how-to.

What was not tested
Nothing of concern to a gamer.

Additional Comments

These test results were conducted on a complete install of the game on to the hard drive. The game was also patched with a NO CD crack to work without the CD. Please look at the How-to below for details on the installation process.

HOWTO: UbiSoft RealMyst



This HOWTO covers installing UbiSoft's RealMyst from the retail box with a CD crack using Wine-1.3.24

NOTE: This HOWTO is based on a clean installation of Wine-1.3.24 on Ubuntu Jaunty( 9.04 ) using NVIDIA GeForce based graphics cards. Results may vary if other applications are currently installed within Wine, or a different operating system platform is used and/or a different graphics card is used.


  • Make sure your Graphics and Sound cards/drivers and installed and running properly.
  • Download and install Wine-1.3.24 if necessary( For best results remove prior versions of Wine )
  • Down the Indeo Codecs Legacy Package from
  • Run iv5setup.exe with wine and follow the prompts. Make sure to select the custom install option then remove (un-tick) the netscape plug-in component from the install. * Note this must be done or the install will freeze
  • Insert the RealMyst cd then go in to the installation directory and run the setup.exe with wine. This can be done via console with the command 'wine setup.exe' or in the gnome file brower by right clicking on it and clicking on 'open with wine'.
  • Follow the prompts, once you get to the prompt called "install you prefer"  make sure to select 'Full'. This will install all of the game contents to your hard drive.
  • Once the game has been successfully install you will need to download the latest patch for realMyst.
  • Download the realMyst v1.11 patch from
  • Run the real_myst_patch_v1.11.exe with wine and follow the installation prompts.
  • Once successful download the following 'realMYST v1.1.1 [ENGLISH] No-CD/Vista Fixed EXE' crack from*Note It must be that exact crack. I had tried other versions and this was the only version that worked for me.
  • Extract the 'RealMyst_vista_nocd.rar' and copy the 'RealMYST.exe' to your installation directory of RealMyst ( this may be "~/.wine/drive_c/ProgramFiles/Mattel Interactive/realMYST Interactive 3D Edition" but it really depends on how you configured wine and your distribution.) *Note I Suggest making a backup of your RealMyst.exe before replacing it with this one.
  • Run winecfg, under Applications tab click on the 'Add Application' button and go to your RealMyst installation directory and select RealMyst.exe.
  • Make sure RealMyst.exe is highlighted  under application settings and change the windows version to 'Windows XP'.
  • Click on the Audio Tab and tick the 'EsounD driver'. Click the 'Test Sound' button to make sure its working.
  • Click on the Graphics tab and make sure the "Allow the windows manager to control the windows" is selected.
  • Click ok
  • run 'realMYSTSetup.exe' either from the drop down menu in gnome (Applications/wine/Programs/RealMyst/RealMyst Setup/) or in console with 'wine ~/.wine/drive_c/ProgramFiles/Mattel Interactive/realMYST Interactive 3D Edition/realMYSTSetup.exe'
  • Select from the Direct3D drop-down menu "Direct3D Hal [wine D3D7 Hal]"
  • Set the screen resolution to whatever you feel your computer can handle. If your using a modern computer I suggest the highest possible. Then click ok.
  • Now run the game. This can be done from the gnome menu (Applications/wine/Programs/RealMyst/RealMyst Interactive 3D Edition) or from the console with 'wine ~/.wine/drive_c/ProgramFiles/Mattel Interactive/realMYST Interactive 3D Edition/realMYST.exe'
  • Enjoy one of the best games ever created.

    Known Issues:

    • Corrupt file called PageLoop.bik causes the end sequence to crash.


    Fix for problems

    • Download the PageLoop.bik file from one of these locations 

    • copy the PageLoop.bik file to your  "RealMyst/Scn/Maps/" directory. I'n my case it's  "~/.wine/drive_c/ProgramFiles/Mattel Interactive/realMYST Interactive 3D Edition/Scn/Maps/ "
    • Fixed! The game will now run through completely. Enjoy.

    Working, but very very slowly
    by Zaskar on Friday August 5th 2011, 0:03
    I've installed the game, applied the patch, and replace exe with the one you suggest and the game started to run, but it runs incredibly slowly. Intro goes smooth, but in the island its unplayable (around 2 fps in some parts). I'm running it with wine 1.3.25, on a Core I5 pc (intel on-board graphics card), os based on slackware64 13.1. I can run games like Need For Speed Underground and Track Mania Nations Forever really well, so my video card is working ok. I've tested all options in realmystsetup.exe, but nothing changes. Any idea?
