Could KQ6 (High Res) ever be made to work with modern PCs?

posted by Anakin Skywalker on - last edited - Viewed by 457 users

I love how GOG released all of the old KQ games--but one thing I dislike is how every KQ Collection after 1997 has released the low res version of KQ6 (and the DOS version of KQ5). The Hi Res version of KQ6 just improves an already great game, as does the Windows version of KQ5...I'm wondering, is there any way to get them compatible with modern PCs? Especially the Hi Res version of KQ6?

  • Both of you guys are making me not want to come in here anymore.

  • Indeed, hope both get a 1 or 2 month posting restriction as a warning tbqh.

    Or TellTale should make an "ignore option", so you can't see their posts until you press "show post". Like most forums have.

  • Hey, I'm just pointing out the forum policy on creating "redundant' threads;

    As per GuruGuru's thread policy;

    First off, please make sure a similar thread doesn't already exist. This forum isn't that large yet, so this shouldn't be too difficult, and we do have a search function. We mods have to track down and merge duplicate threads, so not only does not posting duplicate threads keep the forums less cluttered and running more smoothly, it makes it much easier for us to keep track of things

    Actually did you know another redundant Thread topic seems to be discussing Telltale themselves and their role in the King's Quest franchise. Have you noticed how strangely, enough they all seem to devolve into how Telltale may or may not be the best pick for the KQ series based on their previous game releases? Valid criticisms in alot of it... But it sure sees to be 'ad nauseum' discussion...

    Guess its the fault of not hearing anything new. But its still a rendundant topic, that goes in circles ad naueum...

    I haven't posted all too much in a while. Baggins is bumping every thread I've ever made to get me in trouble because I asked him to contain all his KQ8 posts to one thread which I made specifically to keep the KQ8 fights out of every thread. Every thread was getting derailed with it.

  • Baggins is bumping every thread I've ever made to get me in trouble



    No, you won't get into trouble for it, they just need to be merged. You really should bump one of your older threads on a topic, instead of making new ones every time!

    The Guidelines say nothing about 'banning someone' just because they create redundant topics! It just makes it harder for the mods who have to 'track down and merge duplicate threads', because 'it makes it much easier for us to keep track of things.'

    King's Quest Forum Guidelines (Please read before creating new threads)


    So I don't see how you could get in trouble at all!

    But that doesn't mean a little house cleaning as far as merging redundant threads can't happen, as GuruGuru mentioned in the guidelines.

    BTW, there are probably alot of people guilty of the second guideline;

    Second, remember that this game is still pretty far off at this point, and we know virtually nothing about it except that it's in development. Until some official word comes out, take everything you read on here about the upcoming game with a grain of salt, and try to stick to the speculation thread if you have something to say about this upcoming game. We're trying to shift speculation to one dedicated thread, as so many threads about what may or may not happen in a game we don't know anything about just serve to clutter up the board right now.


    As many of the threads created are based on 'speculation' or 'critical analysis' about the game's development, how it will compare to previous Telltale games, and the ability of those involved!

    I seriously doubt anyone will get into trouble for breaking that 'guideline'!

    Ironically, almost no one uses that that thread, the 'single' speculation thread!

    The speculation thread.

    There is an ignore option. Just click on their username and on the screen that comes up find and click on the option 'user lists' (next to 'send message' under the profile pic) and you can add that user to your ignore list.

  • Cool, just added a couple of people...

  • Take your crap to PMs. That's also in the forum rules.

  • Pretty sure, being told to "shut up" isn't in the forum rules either... or being told "where to post", I.E, being told to 'leave'. Suggestions can be made, but none of that, 'Only post in this thread' type dictatorial-type comments.

    In anycase, moving on... Back to the topic at hand...

    Yes, KQ6 Enhanced works fine in ScummVM. I like messing with the various settings too... You can try out the 'EGA' color modes and get access to the alternate introduction with the extended narrative descriptions of the ship crash, the storm, the ocean around the islands. All kinda cool.

    Actually its worth suggesting for people to try out Space Quest IV in various graphics modes as well including monochrome, and EGA, as the Monochrome Boys in that game will change their comments based on the graphics you use! All part of the joke!

  • I got the hi-res version worked before by following instructions online. Basically, I downloaded and install wins 3.11 on dosbox. From there, I was able to play the Hi-res version. Found the instructions online 1-2 years ago.
