Re: GK3 on Windows 8

I'm tempted to just buy the discs. The hard copy of the game is only $1.99 on Amazon, but then you have to pay almost $4.00 more for shipping. Still, $6.00 isn't a bad price, even if it doesn't work. I guess I could always re-sell them if they don't.

Re: GK3 on Windows 8

No, it's a desktop with a CD drive, but I never needed the CD to play it before. Like I said, I purchased and downloaded it from GOG. Like all the other games I've bought through them, I didn't need a disc to play it. But since updating my system to Windows 8.1, it's been asking for a disc. I can bu...

Re: GK3 on Windows 8 - wants disc I don't have

So I updated my system to Windows 8.1. Then I re-downloaded and installed GK3 from GOG. Now it's asking me to insert the Disc 1 every time I click on "Play". It's never asked me for the disc before. What's up with that?

Thanks, Tawmis. I hadn't meant to hijack the other thread.

Re: So with GK1 being remade...

None, it just crashes to the desktop when the "Day 1 10am-12pm" screen comes up. I've tried every combatibility setting, tried changing the colors, etc. I'm sure there's something else I could do, but I honestly just got tired of fiddling around with different settings hoping something would work. I...

Re: So with GK1 being remade...

The chances for any of the others or better yet, a new one will probably rely mostly on how well the remake sells. For GK3 did you try the Sierra Help Pages installer? http://sierrahelp.com/Patches-Updates/NewSierraInstallers.html#GK3 Thanks, but you have to have the discs for that to work. I bough...

GK3 on Windows 8 - Prompts to insert CD1 *FIXED*

I'm excited to hear about the remake. Any chance they will remake the other two games? I've still never been able to play #3. Oddly enough, #1 and #2 will play on my Windows 8 system, but no amount of web research and fixes has enabled me to play #3. Well, in any case, I'm looking forward to the rem...
