You can't emulate a 3dfx card using these specs, change the graphics mode to DirectDraw from Glide.

It's not a real King's Quest anyways, it's no wonder Sierra shut down, shortly after it's release. They should have stopped the series with number 6, but no, they just had to do 2 more of them that sucked big time! Just like the new King's Quest. I wouldn't pay a penny for it, it looks stupid, and has nothing to do with the original series, besides borrowing the title and using some of the names. Mask of Eternity is a game that is total garbage, just like, the Princeless Bride!!!
Well, I am going to disagree about King's Quest VII.

While I didn't like that it essentially felt like a "side scroller" - I thought the animation was beautiful, and it was at least an entertaining story. Falls away from the other KQ games; but at least it has redeeming values (beautiful Disney like graphics, it actually connects to King's Quest, was entertaining). As opposed to "Mask of Eternity" - which I agree, was not good in any shape or form. The graphics are horrid. The voice acting of Conner is horrible. It plays horrible.

Have you loaded all the patches?

Is this a GOG version of the game? Using a SHP installer?

If it missed files from the CD, that may be the issue.

Have you considered ripping the CD into an .ISO file - and then either using that - or burning that to a new CD and see if it works?
