Re: Problem with Kings Quest VI sounds

I've noticed a similar issue with King's Quest 7, which also uses MIDI. Most of the music is fine, but occasionally incorrect sounds will play. Perhaps it's a Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth error?

The Lands of Lore: Throne of Chaos CD includes an alternative Kyrandia Book 1 demo, consisting of the introduction for the MPC release. Would this be of use?

Oh, I see what you mean. Except that for me 1.9.0 was already behaving in the same way the current code does (stretching the image to the screen top and bottom border) while 1.8.0 indeed did have black borders on all sides. I suspect this is related to the SDL library version used (SDL 1.2 versus S...

I don't remember such changes having been made since the 1.9.0 release. Also I am still getting (with source code from today) black borders on the left and right on my screen when using 3x scaling in full screen. The image is still pillarboxed (there are still black bars on either side of the scree...

3x Scaling - No more border?

I am testing the latest daily build. All previous versions (1.9.0 and before), when set to 3x scaling, have had a black border around the screen to preserve the 960x720 resolution on my 1366x768 monitor. Now, the black border is gone, and the image stretches to the top and bottom of the screen, thou...

Crazy Nick's Software Picks: Parlor Games with Laura Bow

All the Nick's Picks seem to work fine except this one. I get many script errors when trying to perform certain functions. I couldn't even get the dominoes portion of the game open until I deleted the corresponding OPT file from the folder. Is this issue simply due to a lack of proper compatibility ...

Right, and the last time I played it I experienced no issues either. It must be some setting on my end. I'll keep trying things out.

I tried running "The Dig" last night on the current stable build and experienced some severe lags which resulted in choppy animations and audio. Occasional clicks and pops wer...
