AGI games and joysticks in DOSBox

Has anyone gotten joysticks working with their AGI Sierra games inside of DOSBox? DOSBox detects my joystick, and the type is set to auto in my DOSBox config file, but none of the AGI Sierra games seem to detect it. Haven't tried the SCI ones yet.

Thanks

Re: LSL1 Reloaded... yikes. Is the game worthwhile?

Yep, if I'm remembering correctly, the points addition (and achievements for non-Steam versions) was a tack-on patch/update that happened while things were deteriorating with the team. I'm surprised it got released, although I wonder if it was ultimately for the best. At least the game got released ...

Re: LSL1 Reloaded... yikes. Is the game worthwhile?

Do you guys get the strange "achievement" popups as well? It's almost like the achievement system designed for Steam was implemented in a really odd fashion for the GoG DRM free release.

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

Can you check if my installer has the same problem w/o a CD drive? Yup! I need the original CDs and such, right? So that might take me a bit to dig out of whichever Sierra bin it's in! Sorry to resurrect the thread, but it's the exact same issue I've been having. The GOG "patched" gk3 executable st...

GoG KQ8 on Windows 10

Hi, It seems that the GoG version of KQ8 Mask of Eternity has a number of pretty serious issues with it. While I used to be able to work around them by editing INI files and such, I can no longer do so on Windows 10 64-bit. The program crashes with no warnings or messages as soon as it's run. I was ...

2006 VU LSL Collection and new installer

Does the VU 2006 collection installer available here remove the questions from the LSL1 VGA remake and LSL3? I don't remember those age checks/copy protection checks being gone from the collection when I just grabbed the data files off the CD and ran it in DOSBox, but I could be mistaken. Not that I...

Re: Strangeness with PQ2 (2006 collection) after patch

No problem at all. It's easy enough to work around. Just wanted to bring it to your attention in case it was something in the installer so that next time you have a chance you can take a look.

Re: No voice - LSL6

I had a similar issue with the LSL6 talkie version. The resource.cfg file was not correct (installed with the 2006 LSL patch installer). Manual modifications to correct the paths (voice, sound effects, and patches directory) took care of everything.

Re: Strangeness with PQ2 (2006 collection) after patch

The game reports it as 1.002.011. I just figured it to be part of the patch installer since the SIERRA.EXE that is being run (which gets past the copy protection) doesn't exist prior to installing the patch.

Copy failed messages

Collector, I hate to start a new topic, but I'm seeing something on some of the installers that is more than likely associated with using an AGI version of a game that is not expected by the patcher. During the install process, I see a "Copy failed" scroll by in the message window quickly, but I hav...

Re: Strangeness with PQ2 (2006 collection) after patch

No, I didn't apply it. When I install the 2006 PQ Collection, it's not present in the PQ2 folder. It would seem there's something in your 2006 Collection Police Quest patch that was applied that did it. A good test is to type gibberish for the copy protection test that comes up. If it accepts anythi...

Re: Strangeness with PQ2 (2006 collection) after patch

Collector, I also noticed that the patcher apparently didn't like the version of Police Quest I (AGI) that I had it install as well. The autoexec in the dosbox.conf file it created pointed to a SIERRA.COM or EXE file (I can't remember which), whereas my Police Quest 4 Most Wanted that I installed th...

Re: Strangeness with PQ2 (2006 collection) after patch

This is Police Quest 2, installed via the 2006 Police Quest Collection, and then the 2006 Police Quest Collection patches have been applied. I do have a launch day copy of the collection. ----- Any issues with this installer can be reported on the Sierra Help Pages Forum http://sierrahelp.com/forums...
