minor install error re: KQ4

Post by maine_ » Mon Jul 02, 2018 5:06 am

Hello, I installed the game using your wonderful tool - KQ4AmigaForDOSBoxMunt with the MT-32 roms in place. The game runs fine and everything seems to work as it should. It's just that during the install process where the messages scroll by quickly, I noticed it says:

Extract: SCRIPT.701
Copy failed
Copy to C:\Sierra\King's Quest IV\EGA320.DRV
Copy to C:\Sierra\King's Quest IV\IBMKBD.DRV
Copy to C:\Sierra\King's Quest IV\JOYSTICK.DRV

What is the "copy failed" referring to, in this case?

Couple other things:

1. The install only seems to work on the 9-disk version (v1.000.111), not the 4-disk version (also v1.000.111)

2. Uninstalling does not completely remove the game directories. Both 'King's quest IV', it's parent directory 'Sierra', as well as the 'Sierra' entry in the startup menu still remain along with a few stray files.

It was expecting "SIERRA.COM" in your copy, but could not find it. It is not really required and the error can be ignored.
