Re: King's Quest VII (GoG) + DOSBox Recording.

If I get chance I'll look into it. If Qbix sees this before I can, he may be of some help.

Re: Differences between the non-CD versions?

I have both, but have never played through the floppy version, so can't say beyond the CDA track.

Re: Differences between the non-CD versions?

Don't know if there are differences between the EU floppy and NA floppy versions, but the CD added speech and digital music.

Re: GoG version question

I don't know. I do not have them and had nothing to do with their release. If you have them you can see if the patch files are present. I would imagine that at this point that GOG is using ScummVM, which may have its own patches. One of the patches is from NewRisingSun and SVM has blacklisted some o...

Re: King's Quest Play Through - Commentary.

Any reason you did not use the Win version? It has the high-res dialog pics and you get the CDA "Girl in the Tower" at the end.

Re: Sony Vegas, DOSBox, Windows Media Player and VLC.

For me, I'm a stickler for aspect ratio and sharp pixels so I spend the time making sure it looks the way I want it to look. Not everyone cares about that, though. Me too. But then that is one reason that I like the ECE build of DOSBox. It has the "pixel perfect" patch that gives even pixels, even ...

Re: Sony Vegas, DOSBox, Windows Media Player and VLC.

Have you installed the ZMBV codec? Also, if you are going to use FRAPS why not do the Win version for the hi-res dialog portraits?

Re: My Black Cauldron playthrough

I wonder if that was a ... request ( demand ?) from the folks of Disney to create as many chances to complete the game and not dead end, as to not annoy their potential purchasers. Might be more of a matter of Sierra recognizing the target audience. How many dead end were there in A Troll's Tale?

Re: What are you playing now?

No. When you use the manual install as Collector suggests on the GK1 help page, you get a significantly lower quality than when you use the installer. That was an old XP solution for an old version of DOSBox. I have not looked at it for years. It has an error of instructing you to use the VGA drive...
