Question about King's Quest V and King's Quest Collection
« on: March 22, 2006, 04:32:46 AM »
Hi,
Congratulations for this forum. I have some questions I would like to ask. First, I am looking for King's Quest V. I searched in e-Bay and found some that sell the King's Quest V CD-Rom verion published in 1990 and some selling a version they call 'Enhanced CD-Rom Version". Could you tell me if there is a difference between these two versions? Has anything consenring King's Quest V been published in the year 1995?
 
I have read somewhere (I think in savetsl-game.com) that Vivendi Universal is planning to publish the King's Quest Collection for Windows XP. Does anyone know anything about that and where I could find some information?

Finally, do you know if there is a way to play King's Quest V and above in Windows XP (maybe using an auxiliary program) ?

Thanks for any replies!

The "Enhanced" version has 256 colors. Sierra also put out a 16-color version. ::)

Yeah. Check here.

Again, Yep!
Here is all the info you need! ;)
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king
