Of course KQ5 predates Kyrandia

Right. It's just when I saw that scene, my first thought was, "It kind of looks like that scene from King's Quest 5!"

Just barely starting - picking up a lot of stuff. I need to go through the manual and see if there's something about potion making. Because I am collecting a lot of random components - that I am sure will go towards making a potion. (I found her spell book, but all the pages were tore out... and found her cauldron {by accidentally clicking the tree when I went to actually move in a direction! :lol: })...

II strikes me as far less random than I.

Was going through my external drive (looking for something else) and realized I never uploaded my Legend of Kyrandia 1 Save Games for anyone who is interested!

I take it these are for ScummVM and not the original DOS interpreter.

Yeah, I believe they were ScummVM (done through GoG).

In regards to save games, does ScummVM do something that would make it so these wouldn't work, say if you tried it through DOSBox?

Yes, the ScummVM save files (I think for most, if not all games) are not compatible with the original executable.

Well, that's good to know. So I won't be using SCUMMVM in the future.

I put LOK2 on hold, since I made a Let's Play Sierra Games Channel - I will eventually (once I am done with my collection of Sierra games) probably be adding "Sierra Like" games (like Legend of Kyrandia, Les Manley, etc) - and I will be sure to use DOSBox.

I've actually created complete sets of DOS save files for the CD and floppy disk releases. I'd be happy to send them to you if you'd like both DOS and ScummVM save files.

Awesome! Thanks for adding them! I love the Kyrandia games! So it's cool to have a thread that has this info on here. :)
