King's Quest Collection's original requirements:
Pentium® III 800 MHz processor or equivalent Athlon™ processor
128 MB RAM
Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP Operating System
Microsoft® Windows® Compatible Video and Sound cards
100% Windows compatible Mouse
1.2 Gigabytes of Hard Drive space
The King's Quest Collection may have some audio problems.
Solution #1 (preferred):
Install the DOSBox Update.
Open the "RESOURCE.CFG" file in the game's folder and change
soundDrv = GENMIDI.DRV
Note: the folder must already have a GENMIDI.DRV file in it. It will not work to copy it from another folder.
As with many of the Sierra VGA games, some of the games in the The King's Quest Collection have speed bugs. These bugs can also be avoided by playing the game in DOSBox. If you can't or don't want to use DOSBox, you can try using a Slowdown Utility, but may give unsatisfactory results.
Here is a list of problems with solutions/workarounds.
Use a Slowdown Utility.
Keep retrying. Each attempt will bring Valanice closer. Eventually you will get there.
