Anyways, here's my problem: First off, I installed Myst Masterpiece Edition onto my PC into the default directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Myst Masterpiece Edition). I tried to boot the game normally, but the intro didn't play.
I turned on Windows XP compatibility mode along with visual themes disabled and run as admin enabled. It played well for a minute or two, and then it crashed in the middle of a video (and it KEPT crashing when I retried it).
THEN I switched to Windows 95 compatibility mode. It worked, but I am getting this god awful crackling noise when playing the game. Now I can deal with that every once in a while, but if it is happening constantly and it's not SUPPOSED to do that, then I have a problem haha. I have been in a Myst mood lately, and I'll be forever grateful if you can help me fix this.
And by the way, I tried Windows XP mode, and that didn't work either unfortunately D:
