Thanks, Collector! I may need to use those installers later. It's great to see the effort fans have made to keep these games running.

After seeing how poor the VU collections of Leisure Suit Larry and Space Quest were, I decided to track down an older collection for King's Quest (the 2nd one). I'm glad I did. They just don't package games like they used to.

This is surprising to me. I would have thought 3. I followed the Space Quest Companion walkthroughs to the letter for 4 and 5 though, so clearly my perspective is skewed as I did not experience the games in their intended way.

For more info on this see this post:

The patches that I linked to above fix just about all of the shortcomings of the 2006 collections. If you own the missing games, the patchers can add them to the collections.

I love the fact that you´re doin` them chronologically.
It´s like a history lesson
