Police Quest 3 EGA 5.25"

Post by MKSheppard » Mon Mar 18, 2013 10:19 pm

Does anyone have working disk images for this, or if 5.25" images are no-go, the 3.5" version?

Reason I ask is that after waiting a long time, a PQ3 EGA copy finally popped up on Ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Police-Quest-3- ... 3f2259b8db

But...alas, it's 5.25", and I don't have a 5.25" Drive; hence I'd like to know if the Sierra Help Pages hive mind has it before I commit to bidding for it.

I am sure several here would have the game, but you would have to provide proof of ownership before anyone would be willing provide copies.

Took a chance and bid on it. It arrived in the mail today.

Proof is:

Disks are labelled as:

5.25" HD
MS-DOS VER #1.0
INT#10.21.91

Anyone have these in disk image format, or if that is not available, the equivalent 3.5" disks? (is that allowed? the box still has the disk exchange form in it, lol)

I sent him a link to the zipped game, but not floppy disk images which he's looking for.

Yes, I'm looking for disk images as well -- I'm a completist.
