OK. I logged on for the first time in like a year and remembered about something I had seen on COBBS before they were wiped clean. The Uru flymode. Now I'm really a n00b when it comes to hacking games, but could someone please tell me how to get it to work? I have:
Windows 2000 xp
Uru to D'ni and POTS, copleted
the programs that supposedly should work
and no clue.
headbang.gif headbang.gif I've seen really cool pix so could someone please please please hook me uo with a step-by-step how-to and the right files.


BTW i put it in here becuase someone had made another post about flymode. Sorry if it is tacky. Plus I don't feel like digging through 25-page posts.

Hiya
Moved posts to here as it is more relevant to game modifications.
Anyway What is Fly Mode? should explain a bit more for you in getting this running.
Or the new thread on Cobbs Fly mode questions as some of the old links to Cobbs no longer work.
Hope it helps.

He-he thanx for moving it I guess I was stupid but yes the two links are helpful.


[Edit] Oobi, lots of confusion.
I still have a few questions. What is the 'python' EVERY POST talks about?!?!?! I'm so confused. down.gif down.gif I just don;t understand.... But anyways the programs I have downloaded from COBBS 'fore it crashed: (this is the .zip name of the folder)

1. flymodepatch
2. FlyModePatcher1[1]3
3. flypatch-s
4. pots flymode 1.3
5. URU Fly Mode
6. uru_flymode

Now I'm fairly certain one of these programs will do it. I just need some help. That would be spiffy. thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

Just FYI in case you are unaware, but using flymode on any public shard is pretty much guaranteed to get you banned from that shard, and possibly all shards.
Use with caution.

#2 and #4 are the same, the one that I made. It should work the easiest. Just unzip it, and run it. It should auto-find your POTS directory, and install the patch. smile.gif

tech im not in UU down.gif
Ok now when I try to use it (and I direct it to my POTS 'python' folder, it says " This program cannot update Myst Uru because of the following reason:

C:/PROGRAM FILES/UBI SOFT/CYAN WORLDS/URU-AGES BEYOND MYST/PYTHON/python.pak: unkown version. Please make sure that you have a clean copy of Myst Uru: The Path of the Shell installed."

Now I got Uru Prime from the store, then beat it, then downloaded To D'ni, and then bought POTS at a store. I do have one hack installed, changeavatar. Will that affect me python? So should I unistall it? Please help!!

Sounds like you may have to re-install.

Backup your progress by heading to the "C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Cyan Worlds\Uru - Ages Beyond Myst\" folder, and move the "sav" folder to the desktop, before you uninstall.

Install Uru Prime, and then POTS. The To D'ni install is pointless, as POTS includes To D'ni.

Then patch it with the patcher, then it should be successful. After that, move your "sav" folder from the desktop back into "C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Cyan Worlds\Uru - Ages Beyond Myst\". smile.gif

I think by "clean" install, it means that you must start with a fresh POTS installation, without any save games or anything, so yes, a complete reinstall of POTS is necessary. The POTS shards work the same way when it comes to setting them up on the compy.

Just move the whole "sav" folder to the desktop. It will move everything inside it as well. smile.gif

I really hope you're not trying this on the D'mala shard in Until Uru, the live version of the game. That's a Cyan "no-no".

Otherwise, if you're playing the stand-alone game Uru:Ages Beyond Myst or Complete Chronicles, offline, try pressing other keyboard buttons. You won't "lower", you will actually fall. Whichever keyboard button does that is really a toggle button. So hit it again when you've fallen to your desired height.

I haven't "flown" since 2004, so I forgot the keyboard commands.

Think he stated this is offline up in an above post.
First time you hit and hold "shift" you go up but if you hit it again quickly ( like double clicking fast) and hold "shift" you go down.
