Re: Gold Rush! Classic

I recently got the anniversary edition. I think it'll still be fun. But I can't get over how bad the acting is (it almost makes KQ5 sound great), and the pre-rendered artwork looks like something from 1995 in quality (maybe closer to Riddle of Master Lu), and the interface is clunky. But at least it...

Re: Gold Rush!

So I notice that classic Gold Rush is being sold digitally on Steam now. Has anyone bought that version? Does it maintain the classic copy protection or did they release the modified version?

Re: The Weirdness of "An Encyclopedia of Daventry"

(and how can a world that's flat [according to the rest of the KQC] have poles?) The context is more of giving a synopsis of the story from the "Other World" as in "earth" (which is taken from Andrew Lang's Green Fairy Book as mentioned) which was the original source of Genesta (and Roberta 'borrow...

Re: The Weirdness of "An Encyclopedia of Daventry"

I realize this is a very 'old' topic. I did find the discussion rather amusing! Akril's comments especially. As I'm sure Akril likely knows by now (as we have discussed this before in emails), there is a bit more of an explanation for quite a few of the above references, if you understand the contex...

Re: Police Quest 3 CDROM?

Sonny appears in SWAT2 as well, did they give any of the PC units generic phrases?

Really there is nothing wrong with Sonny being in SWAT 4, but they really chose the wrong voice for him. California guy with a New York accent?

Re: Gold Rush!

This is cool to hear. It would be cool it they extended the game somehow. More routes, puzzles etc.

Re: King's Quest VI Script

Cool,unfortunately a I came into Sierra games later around the time KQ6 was released. KQ5 floppy was my first game though. Speaking of old games I discovered a Japanese version of Wizard and the Princess that has higher resolution art, and most of the art is is redrawn. Rather surprising. Published ...

Re: King's Quest VI Script

One more interspersing thing to note depending on which version of the games in particular the AGI games you can find script variations. Different lines, edited lines, lines added and lines removed! Sometimes changes in interface and fonts. Easter egg changes. I discuss some of these differences in ...

Re: King's Quest VI Script

Any information on who made this script file? Or where it originated from? I have a rip from the cd-rom version up on the KQ wiki (it should be complete unless I made a mistake when I was transferring over text from the various msg files) that has some additional material that doesn't appear in this...

Never could get it to stretch, even though I've tried various 'stretch to fit' settings... Not sure if I'm overlooking some other obscure setting somewhere...
