Re: Problem with King's Quest: MOE installer

Thanks for your reply! The CD problem went away after a reboot, just as you predicted. The log file is attached.


Btw, is it normal that my installed directory is only 497 megs (the MOE CD is over 600 I believe)?

Problem with King's Quest: MOE installer

Hi Collector, I was really excited to see the new installer for KQ: MOE, as I haven't been able to play the game in years (ever since I upgraded from WinXP). I was able to successfully load the entire game with the patches and the glide wrapper, but as soon as I start the program I get a Windows err...

Re: New Phantasmagoria for sale

Hey folks, I would just like to update this thread to indicate that I no longer have the copy of Phantas for sale. I have recently received a few private messages about the game, so I thought it would be best to post a public update here for any future readers. Thanks for your interest and happy gam...

New Phantasmagoria for sale

Hey guys, I have a brand-new, nearly-mint copy of Phantasmagoria (Dos/Win version) for sale. The original plastic wrapping is still intact, and the only blemish is an indentation on the back left edge of the box. I have two copies of this game (as well as many other Sierra titles), so I thought it w...

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

Wow I just got it working! I didn't realize there was an installer for the Anthology, so I burned a CD containing the KQV files from disc 3. The installer worked well and the game finally gets passed the loading screen. I guess you were right about my stand-alone disc being corrupt. That CD is at my...

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

Does the installer support the Roberta Williams' Anthology?

Up until now I've been using my stand-alone copy of KQV to install the game. I wanted to try using the RWA (CD #3), but the installer couldn't detect the disc (it kept asking me to insert the KQV CD so I just had to cancel out).

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

I just did a reinstall, no success. I've actually reinstalled the game a few times now. I don't think your installer is the problem, as I've even tried installing the game manually via a CD mount. That didn't work either. I'm just hoping that I have better results with Windows 7. Side note: The disk...

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

C:\Program Files\DOSBox\DOSBox.exe -conf "C:\Games\King's Quest V\dosbox.conf" -noconsole

The first set of quotes is missing, but when I add them in and press apply, it doesn't help. Also, the added quotes disappear when I check the shortcut again.

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

Shucks, I was hoping something in one of those files would be off.

DOSBox is installed in c:\program files\DOSBox

I previously had DOSBox installed in c:\program files\dosbox-0.73, but i got rid of that and reinstalled in just \DOSBox to see if it would fix the problem, but nope.

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

Unfortunately, still no luck. I don't know what my new computer's problem is w/ your installers (as you may recall, KQVI didn't work either). My old comp with XP ran things fine. In any case, I should be upgrading my new comp to Win7 as soon as Lenovo sends my upgrade kit, so hopefully that'll fix t...

Re: Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

envisge0ne, i don't think this is the case, as i installed KQV using Collector's installer, which i assume installs the DOS version by default. also, the game starts up briefly (as indicated by the visible hourglass icon) in DOSBox. this wouldn't be possible with the windows version.
