High Res KQ6

posted by Anakin Skywalker on - last edited - Viewed by 407 users

Is there any way to "import" the high res portraits into the currently available from GOG lo res version of KQ6?

Do you think the High Res version (with the better menu, portraits, etc) of KQ6 could ever be made compatible with modern computers?

  • The one from GOG has the high resolution version. You just need ScummVM to play it.

  • anakin didn't you make a similar topic to this asking the question a few months back? I destinctly remember saying to use scumm vm.

    btw it will also be able to play the apple 2 versions too. Minus the apple screen colors.

    How can I use ScummVM with the GOG version? I'm using Windows 7 64 Bit.
    How do I install it, etc? Like a step by step guide? Could I use my original KQ6 CD for this?
    Also, will my Windows Version of KQ5 (on CD, bought in the 90s) work with ScummVm?

  • there is nothing different between gog and other editions. you will have to use dosbox or scumvm.

    scummvm is incredibly easy to use. just play around with it, tell it to load a game from whatever folder it was installed to, and then load the game from the scummvm menu...

    unless you are windows impaired or can't read (which you obviously can) there is nothing to installing anymore different than any other windows program... click on the downloadable exe and follow the directions on screen...

    1). Install ScummVM.
    2). Copy the needed files off your CD to your HD (RESOURCE.*, the videos, and the ACTORS and SEQ directories for the windows version). You can also rip the CD audio if you know how and want to listen to the awful ending credits song.
    In the case of the GoG version, pointing it to wherever you installed the game should suffice.
    3). Add the game in ScummVM (point it to wherever you put the files on your HD) and play.

    It's really that easy. The high-res portraits are in the Windows version, ScummVM also enables the colored cursors in all versions by default.

    The same way you'd use ScummVM with any compatible game on any platform whatsoever.

    Install ScummVM; click "Add Game"; point to the appropriate game files' folder; select the desired version of said game when it appears; then either start said game from the ScummVM list, or else create a shortcut pointing to the scummvm.exe and the gameid of said game.

    Easy. Simple. A three-headed monkey could do it.

    Yeah sorry, it's all working now.
    One last thing: I put it in full screen using Alt + Enter, but even in full screen, the game screen doesn't fill the entire screen. Any way to change this? That's the last thing I'll ask on this topic. Thanks guys.

  • That's a monitor issue. You'd have to change settings on your monitor to allow smaller resolutions to full the screen. Either that or change the Graphics mode in the ScummVM options to a higher resolution filter (2x, 3x, OpenGL Conserve then stretch/maximize, whatever). The problem is that regular game resolutions are way too small for today's computers.

    In other words, this:
