Re: Help finding Mask of Eternity and Roberta Williams Antho

Thanks for scouting that out! I've seen that one before though, apparently there are some markings on the box that are less than ideal. It's kind of embarrassing to admit it, but I have really severe OCD when it comes to my Sierra collection -- I like the box to be in really amazing (i.e. perfect) s...

Re: Help finding Mask of Eternity and Roberta Williams Antho

I know the Roberta Williams Anthology pops up on ebay from time to time, because I keep considering to get it just for the games like Mystery House and such that are included on it, but finances being what they are - I've had to hold off. You could get the 2nd KQ collection. The Collection Series h...

Re: Help finding Mask of Eternity and Roberta Williams Antho

Hey Tawmis, thanks for your reply! Have you ever seen a new/mint version of RWA on Ebay? I know there are always a few up for sale, but either it's in a torn-up box or with no box/manual at all. I've never seen a nice copy on Ebay, let alone a new one. There's one new RWA for sale on Amazon, but it'...

Help finding Mask of Eternity and Roberta Williams Anthology

Hey guys, I've been looking for a new, mint copy of Mask of Eternity (the American, "big-box" version) and a new, mint copy of Roberta Williams Anthology (probably close to impossible, I know). I've searched for over a year on both Ebay and Amazon with no luck. :( Does anyone here have either of the...

Trouble viewing old .avi files

I am having trouble viewing the .avi files included with the various King's Quest Collections (e.g. TECH.avi, FUN.avi, INSPIRED.avi., etc.). I get the sound but Windows Media Player doesn't show the video. Am I missing some codec or something? I am using Windows 7.

Thanks!

Re: Question about KQ Collection manual

I was actually so disappointed with the item that I sent it back to the seller for a refund. I actually didn't open the discs or put them in my computer, but they looked identical to the two from the Collector's Edition. The only reason I know of the demo is because it was advertised on the back of ...

Re: Question about KQ Collection manual

I just wanted to follow up for anyone who's curious: The "King's Quest Collection" (depicting the Royal Family on a staircaise on the cover) does NOT include the full manual that came with the King's Quest Collector's Edition: I was disappointed to see a pathetic cd-rom insert in lieu of a real manu...

Re: Question about KQ Collection manual

Thanks for your reply. That's what I think too, but I just wanted to make sure. I currently have The Roberta Williams Anthology and the Collection Series. I used to have the original Collector's Edition but I gave it away to my cousins a while ago (before realizing the difference with the manuals). ...

Question about KQ Collection manual

Hey guys, I was just wondering whether the King's Quest Collection (with King Graham and his family on a spiral staircase on the box) contains a full manual or not? The later KQ Collections (i.e. The Roberta Williams Anthology and the King's Quest Collection Series) only contained excerpts from the ...

Re: KQ6 DOSBox vs. ScummVM

Thanks for your reply, Collector!

I know it depends on the individual hardware, but may I still ask which audio settings you use for your Scumm?

KQ6 DOSBox vs. ScummVM

Hello, I recently downloaded Collector's new KQ6 installer, which is all-in-all quite awesome. I've noticed however that the DOSBox version, although missing the high-res art, sounds better than the ScummVM version. I'm not sure if it's just my ears playing tricks on me, but the ScummVM midi sounds ...

Re: Problem with King's Quest: MOE installer

But isn't it weird that only the 3dfx mode (at either 800x600 or 640x480) runs in small screen? The DirectDraw mode (only available at 640x480) runs in fullscreen. That's what I don't understand :?

Re: Problem with King's Quest: MOE installer

Hmm, I'm not sure. It may have something to do with the glidewrapper? The game goes to fullscreen when I move it from 3dfx to direct3d (in the game's settings menu). 3dfx refuses to play in fullscreen though :( I tried changing the resolution settings in the Glide Configuration Tool, but it didn't s...

Re: Problem with King's Quest: MOE installer

Thanks Collector, the reinstall in the Sierra/Mask directory fixed the problem!

The game plays in a really tiny window in the middle of the screen. Is there any way to get it full screen?
