Would it be possible for the fan community to make a patch for KQ7, that could reinclude the time based deaths that were removed in the 2.0 version like the death by the dragon (the one death in which Rosella mentions her father in an offhand remark), or the deaths in the volcano?
But adapt these deaths to modern machines, whereas they have their own countdown rather than tied to the cpu timings. Perhaps giving a minute or two before they kill you.
These were a big part of the KQ7 experience in the original versions, that were taken out rather than fixed in later versions. It would be great to see them reincorporated to make the game more 'complete'.
On a side note, there might actually be enough content in the files to actually make a 'deluxe' version of KQ7 with some new scenes, like add in the Rosella meets Attis scene for example. These were cut out due to time constraints. And with a little more work, create a complete scene from scratch to add in the Graham scene (one would need to create sprites for Graham in the similar style to KQ7)! Perhaps make it an easter egg epilogue at the end of the credits!
BTW, if people didn't know, KQ7 is one of the KQ games that really never lived up to the potential that was planned due to time, money and space limitation concerns... There were many ideas that were cut (including an additional chapter, and possilby more interactive final chapter);
