KQ COllection Series - Problem with KQ6 (Window)

Post by Luinath » Wed Sep 24, 2014 7:51 pm

Hello,

When I was installing KQ6 (Windows) with the KQ Collection Series Installer, it doesn't seem to rip the "Girl in the Tower" track regardless of what I choose, since the options are "Girl," "in," "the," "Tower." Is there a way to get the track in this installer without using a program to get the track? Here is an image showing the problem.

I didn't get a image to show proof for this one, but a message box appears saying "here" before the installer starts checking for DOSBox & ScummVM. Is that supposed to be happening?

I just discovered it. A Windows update hosed an addin I use for the custom message box. It has been fixed, but I need to go through the installers to fix them. Also, this uses ScummVM, which the new Git build broke the macro I wrote to handle version checking. I have fixed it, too, but like the message box, it will need to be recompiled and tested.

Does this impact all of your installers that the Windows thing broke?

Only the ones that use the custom messagebox plugin and ScummVM. The ScummVM problem only occurs with those that are using a recent Git build. The problem with the custom messagebox only pops up in the installers that use another plugin that uses the stack before it calls the messagebox. The fix was simple. I just had to rewrite a couple of macros to reset the stack after calling the plugin. There are not too many of the installers that use either.
