PQ1 EGA: Problem or normal?

Post by dotkel50 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 8:32 pm

I just got the Police Quest Collection Series and installed it with Collector's installer. I started up PQ1 EGA and the intro credits keep looping. That doesn't seem right?

I believe LSL1 EGA does that too. If you don't press any key it just keeps looping the intro.

A number of AGI games cycle the intro. Larry does. Perhaps it was in lieu of a demo for the store.

Edit, Tawm beat me to it.

It's been a while since i've played those others. I'm sure i found it annoying back then too.

I find it annoying when you can't click out of an intro you've seen umpteen million times.
