Mac menu stuff

Does it still show up and function properly when you create a dedicated server from within the game? -HsienKo (talk) 21:40, 21 November 2015 (EST)

It does indeed! Thanks for thinking of that; I'll correct the pages. --Daxeria (talk) 19:03, 26 December 2015 (EST)

Hyper-girl (Mac OS Classic)

I see you uploaded a couple images for this game back in October but never made the page. Did you simply forget about them? -Einstein95 (talk) 05:37, 16 January 2016 (EST)

I realized it would be possible to extract more unused material from the proto than I'd thought, but got bogged down in the process. I'll try to pull together a page this weekend.
On a related note, is it possible on this wiki to start a page title with a lower-case letter? --Daxeria (talk) 10:17, 16 January 2016 (EST)

Star Wars: Anakin's Speedway

Hello Daxeria. Do you have the Star Wars: Anakin's Speedway full credits? You added the role for each developer so I assume you have access to the credits? Regards.--NewUserNameAgain (talk) 13:05, 21 April 2017 (EDT)

They're accessible in-game from the quit confirmation screen. Here's a stitched-together screengrab of the full credits. --Daxeria (talk) 18:41, 21 April 2017 (EDT)
Thanks a lot! --NewUserNameAgain (talk) 07:51, 22 April 2017 (EDT)

Myst: Masterpiece Edition

Hi; I noticed that you changed the release dates on the Myst: Masterpiece Edition article. If I may ask, what is your source for these dates? --periaster (talk · contribs) 19:53, 13 April 2018 (EDT)

www.mystjourney.com — "Myst: Masterpiece Edition was released on August 24, 1999 and for the Mac around June 22, 2000."
I don't know where that page came by its dates—its text is adapted from a Wikipedia article that's said "May 2000" for a decade, and "1996" before that—but archived news and conversations from the time suggest that it knows what it's talking about, and completely rule out the Ubisoft/GOG dates.
Usenet post, 10 July 1999 — "On the Red Orb site they have a listing for this new version of Myst coming out in late August."
Usenet post, 23 August 1999 — "I have been informed by my electronics dealer that the revamped Myst is due for release 8/25/99."
Usenet post, 31 August 1999 — "It's shipping now."
Usenet post, 6 September 1999 — "I just got the new MYST Masterpiece Edition..."
By the end of November, someone in France reported buying the localized L'Apogée release:
Usenet post, 28 November 1999 — "J'ai acheté le week-end dernier, Myst l'apogée."
The Mac port may be responsible for the May 2000 claims, except that its announced and actual release dates seem to have neatly skipped over that month.
Jim Stephenson's Riven Unofficial Home Page: Latest News, 5 April 2000 — "Myst Masterpiece Edition for the Mac was originally scheduled to be released in April, but Mattel is now saying that it will be released on June 7."
Ibid, 9 June 2000 — "A source at Mattel told me that Presto has completed work on the U.S. version of 'Myst: Masterpiece Edition' for the Mac and it should be shipping later this month. [...] Versions in French, German, and for the U.K. will be released later in the summer."
Inside Mac Games, 26 June 2000 — "A remake of the title that started it all, called Myst: Masterpiece Edition, has just been released for the Mac."
Macintosh Game Joho, 30 June 2000 — "Mattel Interactive has released Myst Masterpiece Edition."
It's hard to find any info on the European Mac releases, but amazon.de does list used copies of the German translation, citing a release date of 21 August 2000.
Hope that helps! —Daxeria (talk) 07:18, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
