Myth II version 1.6 is a bugfix & enhancement update, correcting some annoying errors that slipped through the testing in 1.5.1 and adding a few new features and some modernization of the engine. 1.6 plays almost identical to 1.5.1. In fact it has a 1.5.1 compatibility mode, which is used when a 1.5.1 player is in a multiplayer game.
Version 1.6 is the first release to have native OS X Universal app along with OS X native map making tools.
The most significant changes are a modernization of the windows graphics code to allow Myth to be displayed in a window along with an option to share the CPU with other tasks when used under OS X or Windows, Myth also renders the screen at the FPS doing displayed rather then the internal 30 FPS cap in previous versions.
Everything I've tested works as expected. This includes unusual aspect ratios at high resolution, network play, and various mods.
What does not
Nothing I've tested doesn't work.
What was not tested
Various resolutions below 1680x1050.
If only everything worked as well as Myth 2 in WINE. :) Also, it's worth noting that this game isn't really playable in Cedega.
