King´s Quest 4 is not found by ScummVM

Post by Lord Avallon » Fri Mar 07, 2008 3:30 am

Hi guys, the problem is the game King´s Quest 4 is not found by ScummVM and, since in the Wiki Datafiles there is no topic about this game, I really don´t know what file is missing. Anyone knows all the files required to play this game?

Thanks for your help!

Which version of KQ4 have you got? KQ4 was released in 2 different versions, each one using a very different engine under the hood (AGI, Sierra's older engine and SCI, the newer one)

ScummVM supports the older (and much rarer) AGI version, not the newer SCI version. If you got files like kq4vol.*, then you got the AGI version, otherwise if the files you got are resource.*, then you got the SCI version.

Also refer to:

For SCI games, you should check the FreeSCI project:

Thanx md5, you gave me the answer! My version is the SCI, that´s why it´s not working. I didn´t know about this, the first 3 kq´s games work perfectly.

Thank you very much!
