Glitch in KQ7
« on: January 09, 2006, 08:14:28 PM »
Hi, I have played KQ7 for some time now. I have a problem with the game. I am able tog et ll the way to chapter 5 with Valanice and I go to Etheria and play the right tune on the harp, but when i visit the fates Valancie says "Please great ladies I am too filled with fear for my daughter's life to sleep." i cannot get her to start the begining of the conversation, where the Fates tell her about Lady Mab. How can I fix this glitch? help would be appreciated.

No, i speak to them for the first time and the message comes out wrong. Then, I cannot get Dr. Cadaver to remove the "Dr. is out" sign, so I can go to sleep on his coffin and have the dream to see Lady Mab. I already put the ambrosia in the cornocopia, and I restored Ceres to her rightful form with the pomegranate. But I cannot get into Dr. Cadaver's house to go to sleep. I tell you, there is something wrong with the game.

Here is an exerpt from the Sierra Planet walkthrough. Hope it helps.

Quote
Head east and up the winding mountain path. Ignore the white flying horse (Sirocco). Just don't get in his way. You will come to a screen with a cave opening and a twisted tree. Do not enter the cave for now. Climb onto the twisted tree and take some ambrosia. Go back down the winding mountain and head east to the screen with some little flying musical dragonettes. Feed them some of that ambrosia and listen to their song. You can feed them as many times as you want to hear the song because you will need to know the first four notes of that song. Go north of the dragonettes to a little gate-like harp with a large gazing ball. The rungs of the gate-like harp will play notes. If you play the first four notes of the dragonettes' song correctly, the rest of the song will play. If the farthest left rung is labeled 1, then the order for the song is 1 5 6 4. Enter the gazing ball and talk to the three Fates twice to learn that you need to reach Mab in Dreamland by sleeping.

Now you need to find a place to sleep. Didn't the coroner in Ooga Booga have a ... coffin? Hehe! Let's go have a nice visit to Dr. Cadaver. Go to the screen with all the rainbows. Take the southwest rainbow to the swamp. Go west into Ooga Booga and talk to the coroner. He will let you sleep in the coffin.

A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

Alright. You cannot go visit Dr. Cadaver before the fates tell you to go to sleep. Just don't visit him at all before that.

Did you talk to Ceres? I don't think you have to for that part, but it can't hurt to try. ;P

You're only allowed one visit to Dr. Cadavers as Valenice. That visit has to be after you spoke to the fates about sleep. If you talked to him before the 'Dr is out' sign will be hanging on the door. You're going to have to restart the chapter becuase of the Autosave button. It's a dead end.

Did anyone else find this game full of bugs? As I remember, when I played it when it first came out, it would ALWAYS crash and was never stable.
"And still we all are so hopeful,
So righteous in our blood.
It looks so tarnished in our eyes,
Yet so afraid of...

Fading into nothing,
Fading into nothing.
Just a trace of light
That burns within our thoughts... "

Yeah, I found the same thing. It always crashed or was reeeeeeally slow, so I never got to finish it. :P It was quite disappointing.

I don't remember KQ7 being particularly crashy... just reeeeally slow sometimes, especially on some of the cutscenes.


Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

A dead end in KQ7? are you sure? :o
I thought it was the only KQ that didn't have those.

Now wait a second, you're telling me I can only visit Dr. Cadaver once as Valanice, after I've been to etheria and talked with the fates? I have played this game before, before it allowed me to visit Dr. Cadaver as valanice to gain information, then I went back after talking to the fates and the "Dr. is out sign" had been removed and I could talk to him again.  It seems to me that  alot of Sierra games have errors.  >:(
