I haven't had a chance to try Alien Swarm yet, but it would be fun to play with other people we know from here. :)

MoE fixes

Post by Collector » Tue Sep 07, 2010 10:56 pm

The final installment for the King's Quest games is now on GOG. The package includes King's Quest VII and MoE for $9.99. I have tested MoE on my Win7-64 and can testify that it does indeed run. I have yet to play through to the ax scene to check for the lock up. I will probably get around to it later tonight.

KQ8 on GOG

Post by LaughingMan008 » Wed Sep 08, 2010 4:09 am

Was wondering if anyone here had tried the new versions of King's Quest 7 & 8 from GOG.com

I'm mainly interested in KQ8 and how it runs, and wether Collector will be creating a new installer with whatever bugfixes GOG made to their version. Ive yet to have a problem with one of their releases, so Im assuming they fixed everything.

Modified the EXE with a hex editor.

Do you think if they wanted to, they could modify the Win version of KQ6 to run natively with Windows Vista and 7?

I actually stumbled across this news yesterday -- I was doing a search on Mask of Eternity and Windows 7 on behalf of a friend who was trying to get it to run in Windows 7. Imagine my surprise to discover that a Vista/7-compatible version of MOE had been released scarcely 24 hours earlier!

No, but you can add it yourself. I am working on a related project right now that you may be interested in.

Doesn't DOSBox support OpenGL/Glide? Or are we talking a Win executable?

..dane
Purely Win32, so no DOSBox. Besides, for Glide in DOSBox you need a special, unsupported build of DOSBox.

We're talking MOE. MOE won't work in DOSBox :).
