MoE fixes

Postby 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.

I wonder what the hell they did to make it run :D

KQ8 on GOG

Postby 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 :).

I just bought and installed the new GOG KQ7 +8 collection. I'm using 32 bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything installed just fine. Very easy installation. Games ran just fine without any probs. The only thing I had to do with KQ8 was set the security settings to allow my user account full access. Otherwise it gave me an error when trying to launch the game.

That's at least very good to hear!

For anyone that might be following the MoE discussion, I have split off the MoE fixes discussion from the GOG thread to its own thread in the KQ forum.
