New Betas from Magma { Gholsbane }

Project Magma have release another round of public betas for what will (probably) be the final updates to Myth.

Myth II 1.5.1 Public Beta

The Myth II 1.5.1 Public Beta is the latest and most advanced version of Myth II. Some highlights include a new "autohost" feature enabling a computer to host a list of games without a person being present, OpenGL rendering with the Windows operating system, and numerous bug fixes.

Myth: TFL 1.5 Public Beta

The Myth: TFL 1.5 Public Beta features OpenGL rendering for OSX, and 1.3 film playback, among other changes.

Magma are also holding a contest for the best films and screenshots to showcase all that rocks about Myth. Get cracking!
