split from Non-Sierra Installers and Patches

That was me, and this lovely message was waiting for me after work. Reposted patches --- delete them!

Re: BBP vs MoE

Save your fingers and utilize the custom key assignments under options, you'll be amazed how much easier it is to play just by switching from the arrow keys to WASD. Personally I play with: Forward - W Back - S Right - D Left - A Walk/Run - R Jump - Space Bar Switch Weapon F Center Camera - C Open/C...

Re: GoG KQ8 on Windows 10

Bah, don't believe a word GOG support says. They just can't figure out what I changed in the executable since it's a different build that doesn't use GetDriveType() and doesn't work without the vol files unpacked. I suppose I should get around to writing a patch installer for the GOG version now tha...

Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

How did I not see this until today? Thanks, Aroenai! That indeed solved the problem. Of course, now that that's sorted out, I find an actual bug with dgVoodoo2 which I have promptly reported to the developer. That issue has been around for a while, for whatever reason it's more noticeable on some v...

Re: KQ4 Copy Protection

Well, how someone did it... though the manual cheat sheet included with the 1997 edition was flat out wrong to begin with so I'm not losing any sleep.

Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

Not a fault of dgVoodoo, the game disables the Direct3D option on real 3DFX hardware too. You can still force Direct3D using the assignGModeName line in Options.cs... I don't recall what you have to call it though, d3d-something? Interesting to note, there is a dynamic lighting system for the Direct...

Re: need help with first person in Mask of Eternity

The installer doesn't fix the freezing cut scenes, Collector. At least not the one of the arms dealer in the Realm of the Gnomes and the Barren Region (not sure about the ax one since I didn't have a lockup there, but that could have been coincidence). I just saved the game before entering those th...

Re: King's Quest VI CD - Missing Audio Track

It's probably worth mentioning that there's at least one version of King's Quest VI on CD-ROM that doesn't include the audio track. Our copy of King's Quest VI was the so called "upgrade" edition (meant for owners of the floppy disk version and offered at a discounted price in stores) and it doesn't...

Re: KQ6 crashing problem on DOSBox

I don't think so, both the cd-rom "floppy disc upgrade" version and the 1997 King's Quest Collection don't have the redbook audio track but the complete song plays each time at the end.

Re: Kings Quest VI Boxes

Our copy is the white upgrade box, our dad was the one to purchase it but i suppose you got it cheaper if you could prove you owned the floppy version.
