I don't think there's a single DOS Box based game on Steam that I haven't somehow tweaked, although in some cases they did work and that was just me trying to optimise them or change a setting. But I would expect them to at least boot upon first install and, unfortunately, the Space Quest games are some of the worst examples on Steam. In fact, this Space Quest Collection was released at the same time as a Kings Quest Collection - notice how the Kings Quest Collection is now no longer listed on Steam. It was pulled for having so many problems. Hopefully they'll actually bother to fix it and re-release it - GOG still sell it so they must be doing something right.
I agree it gives a sense of accomplishment to get it working perfect but each person tweaks and retweeks when the people getting paid for this could do it once and save every person doing it individually.
Also who has time to do that with their steam games backlog due to their never ending sales!! Not to mention other platforms.
Agreed. GOG seem to do a much better job of this sort of thing - I had no problems with their versions of the early King's Quest games. So I have no idea what magical settings they're using that can't also be applied to the Steam versions. I seem to remember some games needed their settings changing depending on the clock speed of your CPU (because otherwise they would run too quickly or too slowly) but surely there would be a way to automate that (this was years ago so maybe DOS Box has evolved beyond that now).

We can automate a pasenger jet going 500mph at 30,000 feet so a CPU should be a doddle lol. almost forgot have some heat.

Does the deal description make any sense to anyone?
Yes, yes it does.
Back in the day you used to have text only, CGA, EGA and VGA (there were a couple of others such as Hercules as well, suppose SVGA came a bit later).
Graphics on the PC were very poor years ago.

sdutton007
Does the deal description make any sense to anyone?
Yes. EGA and VGA are graphics standards. Remember VGA cables? They're the blue trapezoidal ones with 15 pins (3 rows of 5) that every computer used for about 20 years - and you've probably still got a VGA port on your PC even though they've been superseded by DVI, HDMI and Display Port. Well VGA superseded EGA and so, at the time, you would get EGA and VGA versions of the same game if they were released on different platforms (where one supported VGA and the other didn't). The same thing happened with The Secret of Monkey Island.
I should have made myself more clear - I am well aware of what VGA/EGA are.

What I don't get is on a deal for a COLLECTION on STEAM, the description mentions nothing about the deal, or what's included but instead goes on about the differences in the first game from 2 different distributors!

Darn it! Back to full price now :(
Otherwise great deal
Yeah, it was a weekend deal. Don't worry though, it was on sale at this price about 6 weeks ago as well so I'm sure it will be £2.49 again soon.

Not worries, just have to play episode 1 free at http://sarien.net/spacequest:3

i just went onto steam regarding trial. not clear the difference between standard and season pass and gold? can someone explain? i have also asked before about beginners being killed by experienced and matching. is it true ranked matches are matched better but you need to do training missions first? thanks

Playing on xbox one, DLC is free, 4 in total released over the year, with each DLC you get one map and 2 new operators, free as i stated however the operators need to be unlocked with in game xp which is earned. Without the pass it'd take a fairly ish long time depending on skill to unlock each operator. With the pass you get the two new operators unlocked a week before non season pass holders and ofcourse you don't need to accumulate the xp to unlock as they are playable.

Dont waste the extra on the season pass. All maps are free to all players. And the special added operators are only exclusive for 7 days and then can be bought either with real money, or alot of ingame renown!
If you want the game, just get the base edition, and get for either Uplay or Steam, Uplay is still there wherever you get it from.
cheers! downloaded and might have some time tomorrow to test it out!

There is a massive, massive hacking problem in this game on PC right now. This free weekend opened the doors to so many hackers, it's unreal.
Can't play a single game without hackers.
Good luck to you all, I've quit playing after 150 hours. Great game but the hacking is ridiculous and ruins the game.

I haven't encountered any hackers on the console version (I'm ~120 rank), maybe try that instead? I know it's not the same as K&M, but it's still a load of fun.

Even with discounts these games are shameless price gouges.
It's well known the pricing for the FF series rarely comes down at all. But for the amount of content and the time spent to actually complete them outweighs the pricing. Great game, worth every penny.
Huh?
Yup exactly, look at the average over the last 3 years. Still sitting up there.
Yeah, sitting up there with a 20% discount available for the last six months and 50% off every steam sale (_;)

I think you are failing to see my point of them holding value regardless of their age, so lets just leave it at this.
