Problem with Collector's King's Quest V installer

Hi folks, I installed KQV on Vista 32 using Collector's installer, but I cannot get the game up and running. The installation and subsequent configuration seemed to go fine. When I run the game DOSBox starts up and I see the KQV hourglass icon for a second or two, but then it disappears and the blac...

Re: New Vista installer for King's Quest VI

Hey Collector, one other thing I've noticed while playing is that the music becomes "tinny-sounding" whenever I accidently click my mouse on the Windows taskbar.

Re: New Vista installer for King's Quest VI

I'll go help Beast first to see if that fixes things.

Re: New Vista installer for King's Quest VI

Hey Collector, sorry to bother you again, but I came across a problem while playing: the game freezes after the swamp fight scene on the Isle of Wonder. I saw your solution on SierraHelp.com, but I'm not sure how to change the audio settings with the Windows version. Any ideas?

Re: New Vista installer for King's Quest VI

Thanks for your reply Collector. I downloaded MultiRes as you recommended, and it makes booting the game much more convenient. One last Q: does Vista play the movies and fix the cursor bug? I'm guessing yes, since you mentioned Vista can run the plain Windows version w/o VDM Sound installed. I don't...
