"999.fon not found" LB2 Bug?

Feeling like this game could be murder... literally? Well, come on in here for some extra detective work (and clues/hints/etc!) for the Laura Bow games (The Colonel's Bequest and The Dagger of Amon Ra).

Post by MacGyver » Sat Aug 07, 2010 12:28 pm

I've installed the LBII doxbox installer, everything went well including the sound (no more bug), but as i played on i found a bug when i was clicking the meat storage in the basement lab.... it reads "999.fon not found" and the game stalled.

Look in the "Sierra\The Dagger of Amon RA" folder.

I think he meant in the Star Menu "Sierra\The Dagger of Amon RA" folder not where the game is installed.

No offense, but you really shouldn't have the name MacGuyver if you can't figure this out :P.

Technically he doesn't. He has the name: MacGyver which is the correct spelling.

:lol:

You used an older installer. Do a full uninstall and reinstall with the latest.
