(re: re: re: Running older games on Windows XP)
Here is how I got KQ5 to work.
Open up notepad and type:
Save this to your game folder as Kq5.bat. Then right click on it and set the compatibility tab to run in Windows 95, 640×480,256 colors. Do the same thing to the SCIKQ5 file as well. It is the one with the yellow crown. When you want to play it double click on the SCIKQ5 file. This is how I got mine to run. Just make sure to set the display to 640×480 before trying to play.Also when saving games I had to change the save game folder to C:/sierra/kq5. It is not from the collection though,it is the regular CD version when first released.So I don’t know if these instructions will work for you or not. Good luck!
