Myth 2 Update, Fanbase Keeps Game Alive 12

gomariusnet writes "The Mythdev group has released the 1.4 patch for the game Myth 2:Soulblighter. What is particularly special and unique about this is the circumstances of how this has come about: Mythdev doesn't work for the franchise publisher, they're just fans of the Myth series who have got a hold of the source code (assumedly under NDA), and have continued development of the game four years after its release. Thus far they've added support to Myth 2 for OpenGL, WinXP, Mac OSX carbonisation, fixed bugs, added a virtual Myth 1 mode, increased modding capabilities even further, have undertaken and completed a similarly large undertaking for Myth 3, and set up a server which supports both games to replace the departed server of Myth 2's creator, Bungie. Mythdev is looking for programmers to assist in porting the new, enhanced version Myth 2 to Linux and in further developing the game engine." We noted an earlier Myth 2 patch a couple of months back, and it's good to see projects like this and the unofficial Anachronox patching keeping old titles working and enhanced, years after release.
