King's Quest VII - better quality DOS version movies

Postby Bakhtosh » Mon Nov 28, 2016 3:30 pm

I stumbled over a different version of the King's Quest rbt movies (Sierra movie format for DOS versions) at the CD of the english version v1.65c.
The are roughly twice the size of the rbt movies of version v2.00b so I wondered if the ones from v1.65c are of better quality.

Sadly v2.00b don't accept the v1.65c rbt movies.

So I looked into the v1.65c rbt movie files and noticed that they were version 4 rbt movies while v2.00b only play version 5 rbt movies. But the only real difference are the videoframe headers within the movies. The video & audio data is exactly stored in the same way. So I wrote a little tool that rewrites the videoframe headers, so that v2.00b can now play these v1.65c rbt movies.

While looking into the movie files I noticed that the reason for the different size is that the v1.65c rbt movies use 10 FPS compared to the 5 FPS of the v2.00b movies.
So the movies plays more fluently and the sound quality is also a tad better I think.

If you like to compare: Link


Important Info:
A DOSBox cycles setting of 10000 is not sufficient to play these files. If you try it frames are skipped and the sound gets downsampled or distorted.
From what I've tried you need a cycles value around 16000 to play them correctly. I suggest to use a value of 20000 to be on the safe side.

If you're using the King's Quest VII DOSBox Installer and don't want to modify the DOSBox config file manually you can use the key-combos 'Ctrl'+'F12' / 'Ctrl'+'F11' to raise/lower the cycles value within the game. In fullscreen mode (where you can't see the cycles values in the window header) it's 8x 'Ctrl'+'F12' to get up to ~20000 cycles and afterwards 4x 'Ctrl'+'F11' to get back to ~10000.

I guess that you need more power to play back the v1.65c rbt movies could be the reason why v1.65c had the rbt movies while it doesn't came with the respective DOS version and why the v2.00b rbt movies only had 5FPS and lower quality sound and therefore needed less power to play.


I wondered if no one had done this before since the v1.65c movies aren't exactly hidden. But I haven't found a thread about this. But if this old info feel free to delete the thread. :)

P.S,:
I combined files from the english v2.00b DOS version with files of the german v1.51c to get a german "v2.00b" version and I got it working with german text, graphics & voiceover and also created german versions of the DOS rbt movies (exchanged the english voiceover for the german voiceover from the Windows avi movies). I haven't played very far, but so far it looks good. So if someone also owns these two versions and wants to try it out, I can explain what I've done and provide the german versions of the DOS rbt movies.

First, welcome to the forums.

My copy of 1.65c does not have the RBT versions, just the AVIs. I would be interested in learning more about your copy.

The 10000 cycles was set to work around the fire cracker timer bug. NRS recently did a script patch to address it, but I have not incorporated it into the installer, yet.

I would be interested in your German hack, too. The installer has support for the Spanish 2.00 and I could easily add support for the French. It would be nice to add German.

First - welcome to the forum! Always nice to have new blood around here! And even nicer, when they're doing cool things with Sierra games!

You should capture the different videos and put them on Youtube so it's easy to see the difference.

Well it's a pink CD with a picture of one of the NPC on the left side. It looks like that I don't have the box anymore (years ago I was so stupid to throw away most of my games boxes :( ). Also possible that I bought it at a local flea market. About 15 years ago... But it looks like that this release isn't that rare. I found an old thread at the adventure gamers forum where someone had the same release with the rbt-movies: Link

Here are the details about the files (dates & size and if you scroll down MD5 checksums):

I noticed that with a very high cycles setting I get sporadic short scratching noises ingame when a sfx gets played. I haven't tried to play with the sound buffer values in the resource.cfg yet to check if you can get rid of this effect.

It's basically the english v2.00b version installed with the SHP DOSBox installer. I've extracted the font, message, aud-map and graphic files that differ from the german version from the resource.000 & altres.000 and copied it into the the v2.00b installation and Patches folder (depending on the file type). Apart from that I overwrote the english resource.aud file with the german one (it gets accepted because of the german aud-map files), exchanged the english voiceover in the rbt movies with german voiceover (wrote a little C++ tool with info from the scummvm repository) extracted from the german avi movies (sadly very poor quality) and modified two german menu graphics because the click-area of two buttons didn't match.

So I wouldn't call it a hack. My abilities are very limited. ;)
But I don't know if it's ok to create an installer that makes a german v2.00b from the german v1.51 CD since you would have to add huge parts from the english version and I'm not sure about the rights here. Even if you can't make the added english files run as english version because of the now missing english resource.aud...

Thanks! :)

I could - but I'm on a quite slow internet connetion. I needed 45min to upload the 50MB Zip file with the mentioned alternate rbt-mvies.

And you can easily compare them yourself. All you need is an installed v2.00b version. Edit the dosbox.conf and set the cycles value to 20000 or do this ingame by using 'Ctrl'+'F12'. Then first play the intro, leave the game, go to the AVI subfolder, rename the existing files, copy the extracted rbt files from the Link in my first posting into the folder, start the game again and watch the intro to compare. I think it's noticeable. :)

Oh - it's not like I want to say we should use these rbt movies from now on. I just thought it's a kind of interesting that these version of the movies exist and that it's funny to speculate why they weren't used for a release. Since they are robot version 4 movies they are older than the robot version 5 movies that gets used in v2.00b.

I'll have to see what I can do with it, if I ever get any free time. As to IP concerns, I use binary level patches in the installer already. Any copyrighted material is useless outside of the installer. It is how I upgrade the other versions to 2.00b.

I've found some time to do a simple playthrough with the german "v2.00b" DOS version I've put together and it worked from the beginning to the end (including intro/outro movies).

f6b9350acd94102c146661087d171796      911.RBT   (outro: graphics from english RBT with audio from german AVI)


I used SCIViewer to extract files, FotoSCIhop from TraduSCI22 to modify the .p65/.v65 graphics, subtitle-rbt from Multimedia Mike for intro song subtitles and coded a small prog to exchange the english for the german audio (taken from the german avi's) in the .rbt files.

So you need an english version supported by the v2.00b SHP installer, a german v1.51 version and the files I created/modified myself: Link

When I get some time I can create a binary difference patch that could upgrade the German 1.51 directly from the installer. If you could PM me a link with your modified files I can use them in a new installer.
