Re: The Many Problems with the 2006 VU KQ Collection

Sounds exactly like I expected from those Sierra collection releases. I'm glad I didn't buy them. I'll just keep relying on my own emulation skills. After playing the special editions of Monkey Island 1 and 2, I wish Sierra games would get the same treatment. Those are the kind of remakes I'd like t...

Re: Favorite Police Quest Game and Why?

PQ1 EGA is my favorite. I liked PQ2, but I thought PQ3 was extremely disappointing. I thought the story was cheesy and melodramatic, and I thought the graphics somehow actually looked worse than the old EGA graphics. But the worst part of PQ3 for me was the driving. It was awful. And I didn't like t...

Re: Steam and GOG sales

I bought a ton of games on Steam this past week or so. I was tempted to buy The Devil's Playhouse, but I passed for now. I have the first two as retail boxes, and I'd rather wait for when the third gets a retail box. Been hard resisting a lot of the deals, though. Although I'm not happy that I bough...

Re: Bye bye SierraVault

Here is mine. It is not perfect, but shouldn't take that much to fix the flaws I took the time to clean up my box scan. I thought it was beyond repair. It actually turned out better than I expected. Took forever to clean up, though. Not sure if the colors are accurate or not. I originally scanned i...

Re: Bye bye SierraVault

I have a Police Quest 1 AGI backcover I downloaded from Sierra Vault a year ago, but it had an ugly barcode sticker covering one of the screenshots on the box. I was hoping there was a new scan up. I scanned my own box, but it's too beat up. I'm currently attempting to photoshop the imperfections. I...

Re: PQ1EGA box scan request

I tried scanning my old box and have hundreds of megabytes of high resolution tiff files that I was hoping I could photoshop together, but my own box is way too beat up and scratched. Best I can do is try to merge my scan with the Sierra Vault scan, but my perfectionism is being nitpicky.

Re: Bye bye SierraVault

Damn, was just going to check it out. I was getting confused when I kept ending up at SierraGamers. I thought maybe you two merged. I wanted to see if a new Police Quest back cover was up since my attempts at photoshopping my own hasn't been satisfactory.

Re: Which Conquest Game Do You Like More?

I like Camelot better but that may be because I played it when I was younger and the game was pretty new. I didn't play Longbow until a few years ago. But I thought Camelot had excellent little details that added a lot to the game, like being able to draw your sword whenever you want and riding a ho...

PQ1EGA box scan request

Does anyone have or can make a Sierra Vault quality high resolution box scan of the original Police Quest 1 EGA? Sierra Vault has a scan of the back of the box but it has a big UPC sticker over the first screenshot.
