« on: February 18, 2004, 03:08:08 PM »
I have enjoyed playing Kings quest Kings 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 however I cannot finish Kings Quest 5  everytime I try to push the boat to harpie land it says that I lose my strength and that I have to type in the letters to the symbols but I don't know what the symbols mean?????  This is after I also put the wax on the boat.  Please someone help me!!!! :'(

Welcome Vernypibb21!  :)

That's the copy protection that Sierra used.  You need the manual to get past that.  ;D

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html is the manual. Right-clicking and saving should work. A pdf file isn't exactly an image file, though Adobe Acrobat Reader does have an option when you install it to have pdfs show in IE at least.

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... "

So If I don't have a Manual I am screwed?  Because I don't have a Manual. ???
