Is the game being a ROYAL pain? Need a hint? Got a problem? This is the place to discuss King's Quest!

There are many tools out there for hacking into the Sierra SCI games, including SCI Studio, SCI Companion and Enrico Rolfi's TraduSCI and SCI32 Script Dumper. I think that NewRisingSun developed his own tools for developing his timer patches.

Hi,

Took a quick look...

It is a NE file format so objdump won't open it. I had to extract the code segments and objcopy then into a PE format.

It is pure 16-bit code. Yick.

The first code segment is mostly 16-bit windows, but with a few DOS ints and one BIOS int (Equipment Determination).

If it has the relocation information then it should be possible to pull apart and put back together.

Very cool. BTW, I linked to your page from my site. My DOSBox installer page will now send people to you for the Sierra Windows games.
