This is embarrassing. I played this game as a kid. But as an adult, I cannot even get past the gazette. Where is the gazette? Actually, don’t tell me. Just tell me if I’m doing anything wrong - that I should keep looking. Thanks.

Have fun which Police Quest 1 version are you playing EGA or the VGA remake ?

It’s the paper manual that came with the VGA version of the game, as copy protection. (In the original the copy protection was the police handbook.)

Did they streamline the whole driving thing? I vaguely remember the driving was a nightmare in PQ1 back in the day. Or was it PQ2?

Police Quest 2 and 4 you don’t drive. I do prefer the driving in PQ1 EGA over the VGA remake and 3 though.

Oh yeah, they don’t drive in 4…now I recall. It is kind of like the Gabriel Knight reboot I played where you don’t ride your motorbike from place to place. I haven’t played 3 ever. I don’t think I have played 2 either but I’m not entirely sure. I finished both EGA and VGA when I was very young but I forgot everything so it is fun rediscovering the game.

Going to the Delphoria mission now. Wish me luck but no hints.
