MySpace Music & Help [03 Jul 2007|09:55am]

Hey Guys,
I found a MySpace page that has 'Girl in the Tower' to make it as your song!
Heres the link:

www.myspace.com/kq6


Also, in regards to Kings Quest VI:
At the wedding scene at the end, how do you get everyone to appear, I only get Alex's family, Cassimas parents, Jollo, The genie and guards. How do you get all the other islands to appear? I remember them being there ages ago when i played but not recently.

Thanks.
Alice.

KQ fan fiction and KQ7 discoveries [27 May 2007|09:43pm]

akril15
After an unsuccessful search for King's Quest fan fiction on Google, I realized just how uncommon that sort of thing really is.

However, I've written several stories based on the KQ series, and these three are my latest, though I suggest reading my first KQ story to make sense out of the second story in this list. The first and third stories pretty much stand on their own:

The Forgotten Captives: Whatever happened to Valanice's parents, Cedric and Coignice (according to the KQ Companion)?

The Reason: Valanice is visited by a ghost of her past.

Windows to the Soul: Why the heck did Edgar's eyes change from blue to brown?


With the help of SCI Viewer, I've discovered dozens of graphics in KQ7 that didn't make it into the final game, including another cutscene with "the mysterious stranger" in Chapter 6 helping Valanice, some altered or rough versions of backgrounds, and some pretty bizarre animations of the protagonists. Prepare to have your view of KQ7 be changed...FOREVER.

More Fan Art! [05 May 2007|05:08pm]

Yep, I'm still churning this stuff out. There are more pieces in my DevART gallery, but I thought these were the best picks of my latest stuff:

Alexander is No Fun Anymore

The Most Troubled of Them All

Princes With Problems

Just some random King's Quest doodles

CONSPIRACY!

Life Donor

Gwydion

The horrifying truth about Valanice's parentage (recommended for those who have read the KQ Companion!)

Brother and Sister

This last one is a spinoff of a smaller project that I don’t think I’m going to do too much with:

I just bought Kings Quest V and VI off ebay.. they are in perfect condition and couldn't wait to play them however; due to having Windows XP the games seem to not be install.
Does anyone know how run Kings Quest on XP or somehow to change settings for computers to DOS.
Thanks.

So I totally have Alex and Cassima making out on my dorm room wall. And Cassima is kicking it in the inside of my dresser. Click on the pictures for a bigger view.

Also, could anyone point me in the way of KQ fanfiction? Any whatsoever?

Remember that entry I posted a week or so ago? Well, that thing I talked about in it is out now...

Just to let everyone here know. Enjoy.

...Until my KQ project comes out! Stay tuned…

In the meantime, here’s a promo image and a trailer for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about.

New yet Old [23 Oct 2006|10:11pm]

Hello, folks. I've been in the KQ/Sierra fandom for a while (I even get mentioned once in the Wiki in the previous post :)), and a recent project not unrelated to it has inspired me to create a bit of KQ fanart, and I thought I'd show it off here (I posted these same links in my journal, but what the hey):

If you think being related to supernatural beings is fun, you’re wrong…

The startling answer to a longtime mystery in the fandom.

The angstiest of them all decides to end it all…in an unconventional manner.

One of the many downsides of playing cards with a boyfriend with magical powers.

Yaay! My King's Quest collection finally came!! I'm gonna do some mad installing and then play through VI and possibly IV.


In other news, I found this the other day: http://www.waywardmind.com/KQ4/ and it seems pretty awesome :D Even though Edgar's hair is totally weak in that most recent post.

Alsoooo.... This! http://www.sq7.org/KQ/index.php/Main_Page Which is pretty nifty, especially to me cause I love wiki things.

I finished Rosella's Quest the other night, and it was fantastic. I still get nervous when you have to go into the ogre's house and hide in the closet. I finished playing at 3:30 am. haha.

I was curious if anyone has any of the other games saved as zip files. Either King's Quest 1, 2, or 3? I would be really appreciative since I've never played these games.

Also, a big thanks to </strong></a>kukamukies who sent me King's Quest IV. I am eternally grateful for the game; Thank you so much!

To everyone else, farewell.

Hello all. I am ecstatic that I found this community. I used to play King's Quest IV when I was a little kid in the 90s. I remember typing in the commands and the amazing graphics..which really, I enjoy more than high scale graphics of video games now.

Anyway, the point of this post is, I've had a yen to play good old Rosella's Quest on my computer now, the only problem is I am missing one of the 4 discs. Plus, even if I found it I am not all sure that my computer would even let me play it since it's an MS DOS game, and I don't know anything about the way new computers are set up.

I was wondering if anyone knows a site where I can download King's Quest IV or if anyone has a zip file of the game? I would really appreciate it, and probably do anything I could for you in return. I am desperate to play this game! haha. (See my personal journal entry for that confirmation)

Well, I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. And thanks for whatever insight you can offer me.

KQIX Demo Released! [02 Aug 2006|04:52pm]

Actually, technically that should be The Silver Lining, for legal reasons. ;)

Regardless, the TSL team have released a playable demo of the game!

I've downloaded, but haven't played it yet, aside from just going to have a look at it.  It looks gorgeous.  There have also been some new wallpapers released and probably a few other things since the last time I checked the site, but go and see for yourself!  Here: tsl-game.com.

The demo is located here: http://www.tsl-game.com/trilogy.

To celebrate, here are a few new icons made from the new wallpapers.

KQIX/The Silver Lining Icon Set. [18 Jun 2006|09:46am]

ruthieb
Hey guys,

You may remember a while ago I posted a set of user icons that I made using the wallpapers offered over at kqix.com when I thought the game was going to be shut down.  It's back now, and I've re-vamped the icon set.  I think they look much better now, and thought I'd offer them up for download again.

Teaser:



Rest of the set includes Graham, Valanice, Alexander, Cassima, Edgar and Shadrack.

They can be found at my screencap/graphics journal, ruthies_caps.  It's the most recent entry, but when I've posted something else, the post will go into the memories. :)

Download, use, enjoy!  Just comment in the thread at my journal if you're taking them, and credit either ruthieb or ruthies_caps if you decide to use them

Enjoy the icons!

KQ Forums [13 Feb 2006|10:39pm]

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd write a quick note to let you know that I've opened up several King's Quest-themed forums over at my site.  There's a general chatter board, for things like KQIX news, a role-plays board to let you explore Daventry and the surrounding countries as one of your favourite KQ characters and a help board, for anyone that's stuck with any of the puzzles in the 8 KQ games.  I must stress that I can only deal with puzzle issues, no tech support.  But any puzzle questions, please ask!  I can help!

Boards are found here:

http://www.ruths-study.com/forums

Just scroll a little way down the page and you'll find them. :)

I hope to see some of you around there real soon!

Oh ... and I've also taken over management of the King's Quest webring, so if you have a site, think about joining up.  We have very few sites at the moment, so we need some more members.  Take a look at the ring here: http://v.webring.com/hub?ring=kqwr.  Thanks much!
