By "patches" I assume that you are talking about my patch for the VU 2006 collection. I have been told that it works on the Steam version since it is pretty much the same as the VU collection. It would be the only way to play it in DOSBox without having Win3x installed.
Anyway, save games for SCI games are very versions specific. I don't have any save games for KQ7 on the site, given the nature of the save game system for KQ7 only allowing one save game slot for any given game and the way the game is divided into chapters. You could just start a new game beginning at chapter three.
