If you can't read the hint book in SQ4 then you also can't finish the game with full points

Yes, that is obvious. But it is possible to finish the game if you know the information in it already, as it doesn't change from game to game unlike the rest of the codes.

Contrary to what I said before about assuming nothing, I've assumed this is the VGA version :P (Correct me if I'm wrong!)

Haha, you are correct. I've never actually been able to find a copy of the EGA version, back when it was released or now. It is one of the few SCI games that completely eludes my collection :(.

Game: Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter
Game Version: EGA Remake/DOS/English
ScummVM Version: 1.2.0svn52042
Operating System: WinXP SP3 32-bit

Completable

Problems: Graphical glitch on the dialogue portrait of the guy who buys your skimmer. The actual dialogue portrait is facing left while the dialogue animation is facing right. Screenshot attached. I had a savegame but I accidentally overwrote it. Bug id 3044500

Also, there are a few glitches in the Kerona bar. Particularly when the Blues Brothers are singing sometimes the singing voice and the harmonica notes get stuck. I figure this is because they randomly stop singing and playing the harmonica and sometimes the notes get stuck when they stop. This doesn't happen in the original so it's probably a bug with the music implementation in ScummVM. Probably happens when "Madonna" is singing as well since she randomly starts and stops too. Savegame attached. Bug id 3044501

Another bug, just after getting out of the washer with your new Sarien clothes, when you try to pick up the ID card on the floor the colour palette of the animation of Roger picking up the ID card is all screwy. Screenshot and savegame attached. Bug id 3044502

I was able to go pass this, and reach Jerusalem so far using svn52066 and the same game version. Maybe you should replay the Glastonbury Tor and make sure the mule bolts before approaching the boars.

Oh so the problem is with the mule? Ok thanks I'll try.

But it doesn't break it from what I can tell from the bug report.

Game: Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers
Game Version: VGA/Floppy/Dos/English/v.1.1
ScummVM Version: 1.2.0SVN 52094
OS: Win32 (XP SP2)

Completable, only encountered bug 3044061 (a small graphics glitch at the end).

clone2727: The wiki is slightly outdated. There's several bugs already fixed, and Conquests of Camelot is completable.
