I have sound, like voices and effects, but no music.

I'd have to double check, but I think my soundcard is an ESS Allegro.

You must have a different KQ collection to me.  I only have 1 - 6 in it...  Odd.

IIRC, There were 2 collections... I also have only 1-6 in mine  ;)

Must just depend on which country you're in, perhaps?  I didn't need 7 anyway, as I already had it, lol.

I think it has more to do with when you bought the collection than where... my collection was bought in the US  ;)

But I bought mine about 4 or 5 years after KQ7 came out...

Has anyone figured out how to get KQC to work on Windows XP?  I've been told in the past how to get it to work, but me, being computer illiterate, had no idea what they were talking about. Any suggestions?  (Of course, I'm at school this week, so I couldn't try anything until next week after I *hopefully* remember to pick it up from home!)

Nah, it did say it was KQC1-6, so I knew what I was getting.  And all cos I threw my clock against the wall and the hands fell off :D

Hmm. I have 98, fixed up with the 95 explorer shell and some LitePC tweaking. The only time I get BSODs is when I'm trying to encode video, because for some reason my video capture software randomly decides not to play nice.

I really don't know what to tell you:-[
I don't use ME myself, and since you do have sound it obviously recognizes your sound card. I would have suggested you use something like Dosbox or VDMSound, but KQ7 is a Windows game so I don't think that would work :S

Here's one crappy solution though, just to get over that puzzle - find a walkthrough that tells you which strings to play  :-\

I've discovered that it's not just KQ7, but the entire collection.  I might have to dig through the folder to see what I can find.

I thought Sierra doesn't support it's old games anymore? ???

Oh. Er. Yeah, I've tried re-installing, didn't help. I could try e-mailing the company, but seeing as how the card/software is several years old, I doubt it's worth it. I'll be getting a new computer eventually anyways. It at least works most of the time, which is good enough for my current purposes.

Peace & Luv, Liz

I would like to see your statistics about how frequently they happen to you?
Ah, hmmm, ehrm... ;] I don't keep statistics of my BSOD's. And, since I can always recover from them, I click on the 'any'-key automatically when it happens.

I hope to see you there as well Copycat and we can get some MVPs views on the two products.
