Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Got these today. I really should make an Excel file over what I have, because now I have 2 of Larry for sail, so didn't need it. Had exactly the same "problem". :-) I solved this for myself with this app: http://www.maddysoft.com/iphone/mystuff/ So I have all the time my collection at hand and can ...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Hi there! Will do that, of course! Unfortunately I have tomorrow a job assessment and then will head for vacations until mid of July. But as soon as I will return, I will post em here. But a quick response to the "german" question. I want(ed) to possess at least the "Komplett Deutsch" Versions. From...

Re: A Summary of the Differences Between Sierra's AGI and SCI

"Note the KQ4AGI day/night cycle had to be done with two distinct PICTURE resources. KQ4SCI used overlays to add a darker sky and other colors." I think the KQ4SCI Version 1.006.004 did, the KQ4SCI Version 1.000.111 actually also has two distinct PICTURE resources. One question: Is there any differ...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Finally! The last german Sierra game version that was missing in my collection (All AGI & SCI Games, EGA & VGA, German & English, No collections). Took 2.5 years to find it. Together with the german version of Mixed up mother goose http://www.sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=134&start=990#...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

It has been a while as I have not been getting much, lately. What is missing from my collection is mostly the rare stuff that costs more than I am willing to spend, like the High Res Adventures or the origami boxes. Anyway, I have been looking for this for a while and managed to snag it for $35 wit...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Today arrived a shrink-wrapped, well preserved Donald Duck's Playground! While the ScummVM Wiki states this: "Donald Duck's Playground may never be supported. It uses the first v2 AGI engine AGI v2.01 which ScummVM does not support. 2.01 is more like agi V1 than V2." I think I recall that I actually...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Would DOSBox be an alternative? Or is it a Windows-only Game/Version?

Best wishes,

I'd say it's SCI. And to my surprise, looking at the directory tree, it seems to include the English, French and Spanish Language Version as well! :-)

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Would be awesome if you would put up a page on the books! The Kings Quest companion most have been in the latest edition thick as the White Pages, or not? :-) Regarding the engine of Mixed-Up Mother Goose I will check on Monday, CD is in the office. @Hedegaard: Actually, that is a great idea!

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

Actually I have to disagree. :-) It IS a novel. In total the book is much more than that. For each part you have the story as a novel, then you have the description of the whole walkthrough, then you have a points list, and then you have a chapter with maps. I don't have a scanner, but I hope the ca...

Re: New Acquisitions Thread (image heavy)

... not quite a game, but an interesting book anyway. PQ 1-3 in a novelized walkthrough. I *think* they published later on a 2nd edition, that covered PQ4 as well. But I am already satisfied with the whole Sonny Bonds Triology :-) Casebook.jpg and "Gänseliesel Musikalisches Suchspiel", which is the ...

Kings Quest 6 German Floppy Problem

The start screen is still in English, the main menu is still in English, the Intro stops when audio should be played stating that 3001.syn wasn't found. The Game text itself is germ...
