Request about KQ6

Postby Prisma » Thu Nov 30, 2006 1:07 pm

Hello everyone!

Recently found out about Vintage Sierra, and thankfully I did, because I'm fairly sure you people can help me in my distress of sorts.

I bought King's Quest 6 (Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow) 3.5" version on Ebay, near mint condition, but apparently the floppies were busted on transport. I can't get any computer or program to recognize them, just keeps saying that disk is unformatted after 15-20 seconds of grinding.

So my question is, is it possible for anyone to send me zip or rar packed contents of each disk? There's 9 of them. And yes, this is the old original red box, not a windows-compatible remake. If I could get each disk contents, one by one, I could format the defective floppies and remake them, and still have 1:1 original game.

I'll send digicam pics of the game box if proof is needed that I really have it. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Uhh, I forgot to add my email. Vixi_kitten@hotmail.com is where I can be reached at, or in this forum.

You'd be better off just buying the King's Quest Collection for $20 and getting the CD version with it.

But since I have bought the floppy version already, and with it being faulty I can't even sell it further, I want to get the floppy contents. I'm quite sure you understand what I'm trying to say here.

Edit: MusicallyInspired, you're exactly right. I hope someone in here can help me. One of you great guys sent me the installed/extracted KQ6.zip already, but I really need to get the disk contents, each on it's own so I can remake the floppies.

Floppy disks are never going to last long. I've had lots just die in the box when I've only used them once. That's why I made disk images of all of my old floppies.

I assume I posted on wrong forum to get any help. Going to try again tomorrow. I thought I was polite in my asking for help, yet all I get are comments with the lines of "Oh you did so wrong getting floppy version". *sigh*

I don't think that was the intention of these guys' posts. We're all collectors here just like you. If you detected sarcasm or opposition I'm sure it was purely unintentional. I'm sure somebody around here can help you with disk contents. Maxor, you said you have disk images stored away. Do you have the KQ6 disk images in that collection?

Yes, but they're Mac version, and those one of the games that had a disk mysteriously give errors, but then somehow the errors stopped, I don't remember if I messed with it to fix it or what, but it scared me into making disk images of all of my floppies. They're all Mac version though. I didn't have a PC all through the 90s except for my DOS compatibility card and by then everything was on CDs. Actually I did have a 40 lbs. laptop that I used to play Hero's Quest, Conquests of Camelot, and Black Cauldron.

Problem solved! A helpful soul uploaded the disk contents for me in one of the newsgroups, so I can remake them now. Thanks for help to you as well, MusicallyInspired and Maxor, and happy holidays :)
