QfG1 VGA package

Post by Rakeesh » Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:05 pm

I had bought the original QfG1 EGA (Hero's Quest 1 back then) and it had the usual packaging of Sierra games: reference card, technical manual and an in-universe document (namely the "Adventurer's Handbook").

Unfortunately when I bought the QfG1 VGA remake it was a Kixx release and it didn't have the original contents.

So i want to ask, does the VGA remake packaging contain the original "Adventurer's Handbook", or was it remade as well, in a different version?

I am sure that the original Handbook had some illustrations that were compatible to the original graphics (eg. the Hero's clothes) but this is inconsistent to the remade version, so I wonder if the ilulstrations were updated to go along with the new graphics.

I believe it's the same. (I don't remember game screen references in it - or the EGA one, but I doing that based off ancient memory, since I've been playing it through DOS without the actual manuals in forever).

If no one gives a definite answer - I can probably get you one by this weekend.
