So very stubbly.

Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Myst: Masterpiece Edition is a re-mastered, re-rendered remake of Myst, released in either 1999 or 2000. Apparently no-one can remember which.

Hmmm...
To do:
There are more unused resources here, specifically ones which appear in .DAT files corresponding to Ages in which they are not used. For example, INTRO.DAT contains cursors for holding and dropping pages, and all .DAT files (with the exception of HELP.DAT) seem to contain putpage_1.wav.

SAVEGAME.TXT

Within the SAVEGAME subfolder of the install directory is the file SAVEGAME.TXT, which contains the following message:

This is the location for saved game files

The file has a last modified date of 1995-06-22 at 01:00 UTC. It is also worth noting that saved games are stored as .mys files, and saving the game will not alter this file in any way.

Unused Graphics

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Most of the game's images are stored as .jpeg files, though there are some .pict files as well. Are they used?

Present in INTRO.DAT are these alternate versions of the Myst linking book at the beginning of the game, with the linking panel replaced with each of the others in the game.
