Audio Problems

The Police Quest Collection may have some audio problems.

Problem - Poor Audio Quality:
The music in some of the games is of poor quality.

Solution #1 (preferred):
Install the DOSBox update.

Solution #2:
 Open the "RESOURCE.CFG" file in the game's folder and change

soundDrv = GENMIDI.DRV

Note: the folder must already have a GENMIDI.DRV file in it. It will not work to copy it from another folder.

Game Specific Bugs

There are a couple of bugs the game has that is not speed dependent.

Problem - Original Police Quest game is missing:
The original Police Quest game was not included with this collection.

Although the game cannot be downloaded legally, if you already own the game, it can be added to the collection by copying the files to a folder on your harddrive and running the DOSBox update from the same folder.
