Lag/stuttering fix
For anyone experiencing lag/stuttering.

I was experiencing stuttering whenever I turned in a certain direction in the starting area. I fixed this by going to where the game is installed, right clicking the RealMyst.exe and selecting Properties. In the properties menu go to the compatibility tab. Compatibility mode for me was set to Windows XP (Service Pack 3). I'm running Windows 7 so I changed it to that. Started the game and voila.

Hope this helps some people :)

crashing and bugginess work around win 7 xp vista etc
crashing and bugginess work around win 7 xp vista etc
while trying to get this spectacular game to work i discovered compatibility mode which allows programs to run on an emulated older version of windows ie for riven windows 98 setting it to compatibility mode reduces the amount of crashes and bugs due to incompatible software coding etc its a simple fix that will take less than a minute

step 1 open steam
step 2 right click on myst riven etc
step 3 click on properties
step 4 click on local files tab
step 5 click browse local files
step 6 scroll till you find the game icon that is an application
step 7 right click on the game application
step 8 click on properrties
step 9 click on the compatibility tab
step 10 check the box that says run this program in compatibility mode for
step 11 select what version of windows you would like the game to be emulated in (riven works very well in windows 98/me and myst will work in 95 or 98/me)
step 12 check run program as administrator
step 13 click apply
step 14 click ok
step 15 play game normally and enjoy with a lot less problems

So enjoy my fellow adventurers and if you have any trouble or questions dont hesitate to ask i have a lot of tech experience and i am willing to share the knowledge any time hope this helps

Thanks Mr. Almighty, this really helped. Still choppy at times.. despite this setting and a great graphics card. The rest is just the game I guess.

If you run as administrator, it might fix the problem. Also, this game is surprisingly demanding. My GTX 760 and i7 processor only gets 30 frames per second. To put that in perspective, it's almost as demanding as Assassin's Creed: Unity.
