Nothing is stopping you from playing it again. I still say, despite my thought of TOG’s version being the best, that this is still a very good interpretation of the King’s Quest universe, flawed though it may be. I myself, hopefully, have calmed my jets on TSL, ranting and raving that “IT SHOULD TOTALLY BE CANON BECAUSE IT’S THAT GOOD GUYS!!!!” from a few years ago, and just accept that it’s a very good game for the most part. I still will step up to defend it as not being as bad as people think it is, but acknowledge that even I see flaws. The wait is gonna be worth it, because Phoenix tells good stories.

Unless you’re speaking literally, as in, you tried booting it up and it wouldn’t play on your system, in which case, I can’t help you.

Hello I also wish the phoenix team well. Episode 5 will definitely be worth the wait.

Honestly, if they announced that TSL Episode 5 was cancelled, I'd be okay with it, because it would mean that all of Shalkar's complaining amounted to nothing.

Honestly there's a few games I want to try from postudios but I won't out of principle because it seems like they've built a successful commercial company based on a free game and they aren't giving us updates. It's like us fans they built the company on don't matter. Yes, good wishes, encouragement, and that, but it's frustrating.

Yes, it's absolutely frustrating. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that even though we're roughly four-fifths of the way through their very first game and haven't gotten the final fifth after years and years of other games they've made, is that they needed funding to be able to pull off the final fifth in the way they wanted. They've taken the criticisms of their first four episodes to heart and are trying to make the fifth one as satisfying a conclusion as possible, to the point that they brought back some of the voice actors to record new lines many years after their initial performances, all in order to make Episode 5 the best it can possibly be. Although I just said a rather mean-spirited remark a couple posts back, I sincerely hope that Episode 5 will leave the other episodes in the dust and leave a good taste in people's mouths after the infamous decade of development that led to the first episode, and the somewhat mixed reception to subsequent episodes.

So, I noticed when I play the game an make saves it doesn't seem to be any saves when I exit an restart the game. I wonder why?

I figured it out. Load it as Administrator :)

Numbers: Well Spoken.

I believe if you install the game to a folder outside the program files folder like C:\tsl\ you won't have to start as administrator for saves to work. It's a UAC thing in Windows since 7 and carries through to 10.

I just wanted to say that I truely enjoy this game.  The game stays to to the kings quest story. I am excited for the final chapter an I like to see if Graham can choose between light an darkness. Although I prefer to have a happy ending I am curious what kind of ending there is when Graham choose to help the black cloaks. I also believe phenoix online will tell a good story. The will be one of the happiest moments of my life to see the game unfold. This game brings tears to my eyes cause I love the story, plot an character's. It makes me happy actually know it will come out an I hope soon.

Thank you for making this game. I like Graham he is a noble good man 😎

Personally, I like The Silver Lining even more than King's Quest VI, so leaving the first four episodes in the dust would really be an amazing episode.

Oh, TSL as it stands is already much better than KQ6 is.

Agreed! The Silver Lining blew me away! I continue to be impressed. I've been watching let's players play it and see their reactions and struggle with some of the best puzzles I've seen in any adventure game and hands down the best narration in any game I've played! The depth is incredible. The effort is greater than MANY commercial games even if the engine isn't as polished and sometimes crashes. I do love the engine too. It has come a long way. It's got all the best features I want in a point and click. Even the quick time events in Valanice's dream and the fight against Shadrak are great additions to the King's Quest series. Story wise I'm so impressed on the effort spent tieing up all the loose ends in all prior games even treating 8 as canon. I absolutely LOVE Valanice's back story here. The game already is incredible and one of my favorites. Roberta Williams herself is a fan for a reason!

I feel as if this game came to a halt. I hope I am wrong but somewhere during the six years they been developing other games they slowly lost interest. I feel as if I am wasting my time.

I just want to see a good ending. Wouldn't it be cool if they make two endings possibly 3. Graham can choose between the silver cloaks an black cloaks. Just as the silver cloak man said in chapter 2 in chessboard land you have to decide.

Maybe they'll consider giving us updates if you stop trying to destroy their morale.
