Yep. I really need to get this new Drizzle version out soon.
Shouldn't be too long though, I mostly need to backport the fix and playtest things to make sure nothing broke... :geek:
(I'm sorry this takes so long, but I'm even working the weekends these days. And I still have to fix my car's gearbox before it blows up. And visit a friend whom I haven't seen in a while due to lockdown and can only see on weekends due to the stupid 6pm curfew. Ugh.)

Aaaand there ! I'm not the fastest worker around here :lol: but it's finally done.

Drizzle32. Use this for offline use.
Drizzle31.1. This will soon allow you to access the updated MOUL Ages on Deep Island (I emailed the changes to Diafero, he will likely update Deep Island when he has time).
New SDL for the GreatTreePub. Put this in your Uru/SDL folder. This will eventually be distributed with the Offline-KI.

As usual, let me know if you encounter any issue :)

The new Drizzle32.jar and the new GreatTreePub.sdl seems to work very well on both my Notebook and my Desktop computer (Windows 8.1 Pro x64 for both), thank you very much Sirius! 8-)

You know, the fact that it took me staring at my Github history for me to realize that this was actually patched meant that things were really taking too long, haha. Will be trying this out soon.

Just one thing I saw yesterday on "Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (x64)*" when I tryed to use the "#2" Linking-Book, running the game with the following properties: See screenshot.

Properties for "Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (x64)*":
- "Uru.exe" (previously "UruSetup".exe) and "UruExplorer.exe": "Compatibility" tab -> Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (SP3)
- Shorcut to "Uru.exe": "Shortcut" tab -> "Advanced..." button -> Run as Administrator

Note: For converted "Myst V" on Windows 7, I added an "old_" prefix to the 6 AVI files which have the "WithAlpha" expression in their names; it isn't needed on Windows 8.1.

Screenshot Show Spoiler

Thanks so much, Sirius!

I did the update today, including the greattreepub.sdl (which I caught quite by chance). Four hours later, I realized I hadn't come up for air! Everything has worked smoothly. The best part is that it's been so long since I first played MystV from CD's that I've forgotten a lot of the puzzle answers and so have the pleasure of working them out again.

We new ones discover the shards as you old-timers are leaving... sad, but you've helped make it possible for us! Yes, I for one appreciate all of you who have paved the way.

Wow, sorry, I missed this post. This book does work correctly on my install, but I'll check if I can find out what's wrong and fix it. Thanks for the report !

I won't cast the first stone, I absolutely hate what Windoz 10 has become...

I'm glad you're enjoying it ! Hopefully the few quirks left didn't prevent you from having fun :)

Oh, I never really left, but at the time I released this, I needed a breather after working non-stop on Drizzle32 for a long while. And the people left are mostly working on Gehn nowadays.
Now that things are picking up again with new people coming and stuff being released, I'm actually going back to finishing some older projects (including fixing Drizzle32). Although it's going slowly, because I'm no longer a student and now have to earn my keep (which got more difficult with covid).
I also got some exciting stuff in the works for later. Can't let Doobes constantly steal the spotlight, can we :lol:
