KQ8 help (GOG)

Hey--
Got the GOG pack with KQ8 and it runs fine except it freezes at the first boss battle (with Lucreto's henchmen after getting the Ax in Daventry). Can anyone help me with this?

InterAction Magazine

Hey Going through the InterAction Collection on Ken's site, I notice quite a bit of it is incomplete. For example, several issues, in particular the Spring 1993 issue, are completely missing. Others have been reported to have stuff missing from them. I know for a fact that the Fall 1996 issue has se...

Do you think if they wanted to, they could modify the Win version of KQ6 to run natively with Windows Vista and 7?

Re: Difficulties with KQVIII and glide wrapper

How far can you get into the game with the experiments you've been doing? Like it gets past the opening crash--but how far past it does it get? I hope you can get it to run natively on Win7, that'd be awesome. I got it to the point that instead of the immediate crash, the opening music will start a...

Re: Difficulties with KQVIII and glide wrapper

I have tried various Glide wrappers inside of a virtual machine, but the results weren't pretty. None of them behave as they do in a non vitualized environment. performance is also a potential issue, as it adds another load on top of that of the emulation/virtualization. I have been exploring getti...

Re: VMWare

VmWare, I've noticed, costs over $100.
There has to be someway a patch can be made for KQ8 to work on Windows Vista/7

Adventures of Pinocchio on Windows 7

Hey...
Adventures of Pinocchio, while not a Sierra game, was a 4 Disk FMV Adventure Game. I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to get it to work on Windows 7? It was released for Windows 3.x in 1996.

TSL: Re-inventing the Wheel

I posted this on the TSL forums...I figured I'd repost it here: ''From what I've seen and heard about what the next episodes of TSL have in store (including quotes from Cesar and the rest of the team, about taking TSL in the ''teen fantasy'' direction and exploring the traumas left on Alexander and ...

Re: King's Quest 8 Remake

The project seems really interesting. I always liked the idea that the series finally discovered 3D with the eighth installment, even if I loathed the final result. A fan project whose goal is to keep the 3D environments (potentially a great asset to the King's Quest 's series, as demonstrated also...

Re: King's Quest 8 installer for Vista

He could probably, but if he would want to and if he could ever get the time are the larger questions. Well if you do talk to him, please tell him doing so would be a great service to the community. I know many dislike MoE, but there are those who do like it, on it's own merits, and I don't think i...

Do you think (once he gets around to it) he'd be able to make MoE compatible with today's computers? I don't really know the guy and heard of him only after this thread.

When I got to register, it says his site's security certification has inspired.
I hope he makes an MoE update, I want to be able to play it on my Windows 7 system.

King's Quest 8 Remake

Hi A while back, there was a project which attempted to remake MoE as a 2D point and click adventure, however, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in instead helping me MoE the way it was meant to be in 1995-1996 (the early stages, before Sierra was sold to CUC). It would still be 3D, but ...

VMWare

Which VMWare product do you download to play KQ8 and how do you set it up and install Win98 on it?
