KQ4 Disk Files

Post by Chilly Willy »

I have King's Quest from www.gog.com. I would like to play King's Quest IV SCI on my Tandy 1000 HX. I just don't know what files were on disk 1, disk 2, and so forth. Anyone have these disk and could list the files on each disk?

Does the Tandy have a hard drive? If so, you probably don't need to separate the files, just copy the game files (you don't need dosbox & icons, etc.) over however you can.

I've had some luck separating original game files from new Gog/dosbox files by sorting the files by date in windows explorer. There is usually an obvious old/new date breakdown in the file list.

No hard drive. Thanks for the tip. ;)

I may just buy the original disk off ebay.

How many files are there in the Gog directory?

I loved this game. Good luck! :)

Probably not directly helpful, but a fun general resource is the sierra help site:

I'm not sure at the moment. I'm not at that pc.

I did end up getting the AGI version off ebay for pretty cheap. So I'll be playing that version now. :D
