Technical problems when trying to replay MM8

    I encountered a problem when trying to replay MM8, for some reason whatever the intro video freezes the game.
    It was similar with MM7, there I saved the game after intro and cutscenes on an old computer and copied the saves to my current one. The old computer doesn't work properly too - only software mode and windowed, but at least the videos work there.

    Well, I tried the same with MM8, but here it's impossible to skip the intro hitting the Esc key even with the saves of the other computer present. Seems the game seriously insists on playing the intro at least once. Is there a way to get rid of it nevertheless?

    No idea about the reason - maybe it's the grafics card (NVIDEA GeForce 62000), processor is AMD Athlon XP 2700, operating system is Win XP.

The intro movies were made with Bink...

    ...which is a development tool which is packaged and sold along with Smacker by Rad Game Tools. They kept on releasing new versions as new hardware came out. It's likely that your version is too old for your system.

    Go to the link below and get the final version. (Donations are optional) and let us know if that helps.

Many thanks, I'll try it - currently I run it using GrayFace MM8 Patch....

    it has the option to disable the intro - it's better to have it available though.

    A great option there is the chest fix - opening the chest a second time gives the items that didn't fit the first time.

Hmmm. IIRC, Greyface's patch included the Bink update...

    only option for the beginning of the game is still Greyface's patch.
    And when the cutscenes come there's the same problem. I managed by hitting Esc at once - together with in the patch ini the 'no delay for videos'disabled.

    This is way after the original post date, but I wanted to thank you! I just installed MM8 and Greyface's patch, but it was still ignoring the escape button, plus I had a huge bright spot in the middle of the screen. I got the Bink upgrade as you suggested, and it worked perfectly! I'm now playing with no problems.

    So much appreciate this site and the many very knowledgable posters. It's saved me more than just this one time.

    BTW, I'm running Win7, 32 bit.
