      In Kings Quest 8 (I’m running it under Windows XP), when I get the axe and go out of the building, an enemy approaches to fight me. After a little chat, the fight is supposed to begin, but it doesn’t! The music keeps playing and the mask keeps spinning but nothing else happens and it just stands like that forever.
      Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do? I’ve already enabled Win95 comp. mode.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Try changing your graphics mode.  Go into Options, click on graphics, then click on something other than DirectDraw.  I don’t know if it will work for you, but it worked for me.

      Put the axe away before you leave the millhouse, switch to 1st person view then leave the millhouse. After the cut scene with the henchman you can change back to 3rd person view. This solution seems to work for most people who get this freeze.

      Uh, oh. I ran into the same problem when visiting the merchant in the barren region. Any one know how to get past that?
