Kings Quest 1-8

Some of you may not have played any or all of the games. So before you hunt down old copies on ebay or something that you may have a hard time getting to work on a newer system I would like to suggest this alternative... GOG.com offers all 8 original games for about $30 and they broke them into three parts....

Kings Quest 1-3 $9.99

Kings Quest 4-6 $9.99
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/king%E2%80%99s_quest_4_5_6

Kings Quest 7 and 8 $9.99
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/king%E2%80%99s_quest_7_8

as a second alternative you could buy a physical copy of the Kings Quest collection... This has only games 1-7... but in my opinion 8 is NOT really part of the series anyway its more like a spinoff action game set in the same world as KQ.... I mean even the character is not part of the royal family.

    1-6 do, 7+8 do not.
    Why dont 7 & 8 work?
  • I always adored the character portraits in Sierra games. It made the dialogues much more intimate somehow. A close-up in a 3D game never seemed to have the same charm for me.

    Does anyone know how to get ScummVM to be fullscreen and yet also keep the image to a smaller centered box? DosBox does this and that is how I prefer to play these old games, kept a smaller image size yet with black around them to avoid seeing the desktop while I play.

    Thanks in advance.
    In the options menu, under the graphics tab, choose Normal (no scaling) for the graphics mode. Also click the fullscreen tab or press ALT+Enter when the game starts to get it to display full screen. :)
  • And for those who purchased The Great Adventure Bundle 2010, they got all the KQ games in it. Also, there's the remakes of the three first games, which makes up for old graphics :)

    Thanks for reminding me! I bought the bundle, but totally forgot until just now what was in it! Time to get playing afterall!
  • My bundle is giving me an error when I try installing it. Error opening bla bla bla license.txt. If I click, it goes through a list what I assume is every single file in the release.

    Because KQ7 is an SCI2+ game, which as mentioned is still in development and not yet supported. KQ8 will never work in ScummVM as it is a 3d game, and outside of its scope.

    That stretches the image to fill the screen for me :(
  • I got the collection off steam for $20 but I have to run it though Xp in boot camp (running a mac) I've only played 1-5 and I'll get around to 6 and 7 soon.
