KQMOE Fixes

Post by Fender_178 » Fri May 19, 2017 1:04 pm

I have been browsing through the GOG message boards for King's Quest and I stumbled on a topic where someone asked that would KQ 1-MOE would work under Windows 10 some said 1-7 will work perfectly however KQMOE would have issues while others have said MOE ran just fine for them under Windows 10. Well then some guy posted a link to a site with fixes the issues that plague MOE under modern versions of Windows. Here is the site. Plus it fixes the issues with the movies by bypassing the using of the Indeo codec which is disabled under recent versions of Windows. He re-encoded the files to .avi for maximum compatibility
http://kqmoe.nicode.net/
Maybe Collector can email this guy and ask him if he can implement this patch and video files for each language into his installer for MOE. This is indeed good news for those people who want to play MOE under a recent version of Windows without using a Virtual Machine (VM) Of XP or Win9X to make the game run.
FREEZE SCUM!!

Ah I'm sorry I missed that (or possibly forgotten?)! I did see he linked back to Sierra Help Pages here. Either way, downloaded everything!
