(re: Help me please, I’m desperate!)
Thanks for the advice, I selected it to run in 256k colors and that got the problem solved. I have, however, all but given up on the game because I cannot get that goddamn laptop out of the busted spaceship and walk off screen again before being zapped by the droid. It is far too frustrating to deal with, and I simply don’t want to bother anymore.
I don’t see why they bothered to make Space Quest IV when it is by far the most frustrating and problem-filled of the games.
