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.
What does not
Run the program.
What was not tested
I used a Windows native dll that comes on the setup directory of the game, "Smackw32.dll". The error was a bit unusual. "Permission error to access /dev/nvidiactl". Not exactly this error, but something like this.
