Death by narration?
« on: February 02, 2011, 03:22:47 PM »
Quote from: death_messages.con
Graham is bored to death because the narrator just won't stop now! Yes, death by narration!

Hmmmm... IoS... so where can Graham get bored to death on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain? Or, when... hmmmm!

...I fear this post cofuses me a bit.  Obviously you're referring to the Easter egg in Episode 2, but I'm not sure what you mean. ;]

He's talking about a death message in one of the game files. There are several death messages there that are not in the first two episodes.

They may not be in the first two episodes, but who's to say about later episodes... :suffer:

I'd hope so, especially with some of the other stuff that's in there :D :P

Hmm, there are ways to look through the game files? I'd be very interested in looking through the narrations (in a sci viewer kinda way), see what I've missed looking the normal way.
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

If you unzip data.tsl, you can view all the game's files. All of the game's text is in the .con files.

I didn't realize the files were in there as text. I thought they were all compiled. Anyway, I guess you'll have to wait and see what happens... :suffer:

The text data can be read from them with a text-viewing program like Notepad.

It seems the ending or a major scene from a later episode (involving Shadrack), is in the files as well in the "Ocean" folder. Be careful if you want to avoid spoilers.

Yeah, I was afraid that might be the case, and one reason to not necessarily look at those files now. Spoilers, people!

Think of this as a late Christmas present to you, our loving and adoring fans. Or an early one, if you want to think of it in another perspective. But, it's up to you if you want to have part of the game spoiled. Me? I'd rather wait. Besides, there's no guarantee all of that stuff will be used. In KQ7, there was an audio clip included in the final game of King Graham, but we never saw him anywhere in the game.

Yeah, and it was crazy!  That guy voicing Graham sounded like a total weirdo--definitely NOT the Josh or Jason that we know and adore.  "Ladies, I was getting worried! You're 15 minutes late for lunch!" ::)

Ya, there are alot of hidden files in KQ7. Including the missing conversation between Attis and Rosella (the scene that was included in the KQ7: Authorized Guide and reprinted in the Companion 4th edition).

What! I didn't know about that!  Is there a way we can see that if we don't have the 4th edition Companion?

Ya, its a cool scene. It was expanded on and novelized in the companion/KQ7 authorized guide. An extended version of the Graham scene is included in that book too (it's used as the framing story).

Wow.  That sounds like the narrator from Leisure Suit Larry playing Graham.  I can't tell you how glad I am that that DIDN'T make it into the game.  lol
