Saving issues
I can't seem to save or restore my game. Every time I try I get the error "GetFileSaveReturn Error #2" or something close to that. I am running in compatibility mode for win 98. Does anyone know what happened or how to fix it? I can't even save a new game...

Yep I had the same thing, with Riven too. Really hope someone gets on here with some advice...

HOW DO I SAVE?

I think I figured it out. I have Windows 7, and followed the advice on getting the Clock Tower Crash to work, but tried one more step. I set the compatability for Myst.exe in the {Steam install directory}\SteamAoos\common\Myst Masterpiece to Windows 95, and had Run in 256 colors, Disable visual themes, Disable desktop composition, and Disable display scaling on high DPI setiings checked. I believe the minimum is the Run in 256 colors. I Successfully saved and restored files. Upon Saving or restoring, it appeared that my computer hung, but it was actually loading the files. You can hear stuttering sounds while this happens, and it takes 30 seconds or so, but voila you can save and restore.

Thank you! I followed what you did and got the same results. Having to wait 30 seconds for a save is no problem when it means I can play the game without any hang-ups!

Try contacting Cyan support they may not know about this problem;

Every time I try to save the game it immediately blacks out the screen then the entire game crashes to desktop. Opened a trouble ticket with Cyan but no response yet. I've done the whole Windows compatible shuffle too.
