I've noticed a lot of people having trouble with freezing and such in this old game. There are a fair number of threads here as well, but none really helped with all the issues I was having. Loading screen freezes, menu screen freezes, the game not running in full screen... it made the game a real pain to try and enjoy. And finding repeated dead old links to potential fixes didn't help either. But, then I found this video by Strategy House...

Over there is a quick three minute video that addresses everything I was experiencing, with four links to the files needed to fix them. It all worked. Every issue I had was taken care of and the game now runs smoothly. But, for those not interest in going to YouTube and watching it...

http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/F9XnVDBd/file.html - The loading screen freeze fix. Copy the files into your "Data" folder and overwrite the files.

http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/BK7qPZyK/file.html - The fix for when you transfer from the 3D game world to the 2D menus. Just drop it into your "Data" folder and overwrite the file.

http://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/6-might-and-magic-ix-fullscreen-fixes/ - The fullscreen fix. Just run the "install.bat" file after you unzip the package and your game will be full screen.

http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/Y7mZbV8X/file.html - A random game freeze fix. Just drop the cfg file into the game's installation folder (the one with the "mm9.exe" file).

And that about covers it. Kudos to Strategy House for gathering everything up and making fresh links for people to grab the needed files.

I actually had a nice conversation with this guy in the comments section of that video. It fixes ALMOST everything. The problem is, many people are still dealing with the issue of the screen going pitch black at night and underwater. I've scoured every corner of the internet that has ever discussed technical issues of Might and Magic IX and tried every possible combo of solutions, and nothing works. It's immensely frustrating, and I hope someday soon someone comes up with a solution.
