QFG 4.5 Discussion Part XVIII
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:09:46 PM »
Hey guys n gals, just a quick stop by. Ever hear about Quest For Glory 4.5 "So You Thought You Were A Hero" great video about revisiting Spielburg. Unfortunately, it wants to install at a resolution of 300/200. You will need an old low res monitor. There are maps and walkthroughs at Mikey's place. gotta go

i think most fans of this game prolly heard of it
assumtion though

as for needing said res.. urmm huh?

no...
?

again whats the native res for QFI? anyone? lol same... res you just stated, just pop the sucker in full screen mode,

did u run it in an emu?
i tried the game but I got no sound, like a few others some crashes too and bad bad ones, not coded well aatt all

VDMS emulator
try that, the game runs fine but the sound starts then cuts out,
if anyone knows how to get the game to run with sound cool
as for an old monitor.. huh
this is ags here...
same as qfi...
low res doesnt mean you must force the monitor to be smaller, or lower your res, though some ags games do work better on low res etc,
some make the desktop stick at 800x600  (bad coding IE forgetting to add the reset back to original etc) at the end of process..

terrible game just in the coding, i gave it a 1/5
let me know garr, about the fullscreen etc,
and lets play some c64 games together!
thems are good games and great times

see my other thread!

oh garr
dont use the windows ver
use the 1.1 dosbox one and tadaa
no issues

otherwise to get it running you have to set to win95/98 and 640x480 forced just to get to the setup
then after that the game freezes at the load screen

to get paaaaast that one, you have to go to process tabs and make it SINGLE CORE CPU and the game runs fast instead of slow,
or freezing as the cpu is shooting to fast for it..

anyway I think ur using the windows pos installer, which is again coded badly
dosver= works just i cant get sound to ...

The guy that make QFG 4.5  should do a QFG 4.6 where the hero travels back to Shapeir.

He could easily loot all the graphics from the QFG 2 VGA remake as well!  ;D


Also, the plot is almost secondary to a parody game- just bring back Bernard again somehow.

I had a lot of used computer hardware lying around. So I had a brainstorm. I knew of a guy, in the next town about 10 miles away, who built old systems. Loaded up all my junk and visited him. I traded everything for a 32 bit system with XP installed, a keyboard, mouse, and old monitor. Purchased a cheap 2 speaker system at office max. Every thing going great with QFG 4.5, remake of QFG 1.

garr so you only got the game to work on xp?

interesting,

as I said before I worked for intel for a while so i still have my INTEL XP pro cd, which is good FOREVER with unlimited installs, great stuff to have,
sadly i dont have the intel win7 or 8 or 8.1 but shrug

anyway yea I got the game to work in dosbox, just know this
the 4.5 installer = poop
the game was made very poorly with that code, so even when u get the windows exe and rar files, it fails even on the setup bat, then you compat mode that and it fails in game

so yea dosbox with the rars not exisiting and just straight files, worked for me, just no sound!
hmm

You know, I think I have a QFG 4.5 Enhanced Edition somewhere that runs on modern computers.

Any early version of windows should work as long as it's ntfs, er.. 32 bit. That's the only windows version of the game available from http://www.curlysworldoffreeware.com/games/view/238

Just put the files into any directory on your hd and run the game exe

lol garr

ntfs :P
nooo

yayay 32 bit also nooo

haha

its nothing about that, though yea 32 bit gets in the way if we have 64 bit and 99% of the worlds windows are now 64 bit..
so im screwed there,
hence dosbox, which can emulate it..
durr

still I cant get it to run with sound at all, and im a dos master, just odd game, bad coding
yep bt if you could find the one that runs on modern rigs please .. link or let us know

(who has a 32bit os anymore!?)

i used to have a dual boot just for that but trust me xp and new os's fight and sometimes you can lose mup.sys and that my friend = loss of all files as it tries to pull all files from one format to the other
old to the new or vice versa

dual bootin is great but bad at the same time, in college we had to quad boot  3 win and 1 linux os, great fun, but you can find so much going wrong..

anyway garr  win764 bit, game doesn run here, i can if i set the compat to win2000 or xp i can run the setup, change the res, etc
game runs then locks up  right at the start..
no clue..

in dos box game runs fine (with the dos special exe) but no sound or music

oops
durf

he even says how to make it run in windows

just add --setup after the exe in the properties
and make sure the setup config has 0 for windowed and 1 for res 1= 640x480  0= no windowed

Only thing wrong with the --setup is in the download from his site for the windows version has no setup.exe, only the setup.bat.

Anyhow, the game default is full screen. It would not run in windows 7 64 bit. A message popped up saying the resolution could not be altered. Once I put the files on an hd that was 32 bit ntfs, the game ran just fine.

Should you ever get it working, enter town, go north and ask the apple vendor, a centaur, for a date. agree to tend her garden. Exit town, go north and west to the garden and use the hoe (rake, whatever). Return to the centaur and again ask for a date. Leave town again and rest for 60 minutes. Go back up to the garden and she should be waiting. Ask her for sex.  ha ha ha ha

urmm i dont think you understand what i mean garr

thats a direct quote and after doing what it said..
the game runs FINE  in win7 64 bit

so you have the windows exe... and the setup.bat
dont even touch the setup.bat

just right click the EXE... in the box that has the exe you type --setup  after it so it looks like this

QFG.exe --setup.exe

it will then LAUNCH the setup or you can just make a setup config yourself if you know how  (i did)

btw its never default for full screen ever, just so you know
if you got it fullscreen you set it up that way

if a full screen was default on this game it would hurt it, badly if not setup at the right res
so 90% of games this old run in a box, hell even qfi did at first,

so you pick 640x480  there is no way a new age desktop can have that res my lowest is 800x600 so yes its in a window,
to solve that just edit the config to 0 for windowed.. tadaaa

anyway it works mate

if anyone needs help getting it to work, without XP or 32 bit lemme know

Quick question... Why all the QFG 4.5 in the "Quest to Find BT" thread? It's all good, but just saying...
