GK1 freezes at specific events (2011-01-07 22:45) Nyusha
GK1 (CD version) crashes at certain particular places. For instance, when I enter Jackson square, it will freeze the moment a radio message comes in. Running it under a "heavy_debug"-version I get

It also says something about "illegal opcode 63"
use the official " Gabriel Knight 1 CD DOSBox Installer"! (2010-11-23 12:06) ryz
Installs entire game to the hard drive for CD-less play. Includes all official Sierra patches and the NewRisingSun patch for the game's timer bugs. It is Vista and Windows 7 compatible and will work on 64-bit Windows.

The Installer can be downloaded here:

unable to finish a quest (2010-05-02 16:05) stenosis
GK1 is just running fine except that there's a quest at the cemetery where you need to place a message on the wall. It's not possible to reach the signs with the mousecurser, they are out of place. I don't know how to solve this problem. :-( Using DOSBox 0.73 on Linux and OS X.
in os x (2007-02-14 15:44) kareman
works well on my ibook 1.44 ghz os x 10.4, but only in full screen mode and with cpu cycle on auto. window mode is very slow, and changing to full screen in-game crashes the game.
Hissing problem (2006-08-04 22:25) ravidel
If you hear a loud hiss, instead of game music and sound, try changing the Gabriel Knight settings from Sound Blaster to Thunderboard, using the install program.
Works fine (2004-10-09 15:57) Iggi
Seems to be fully playable both with 0.61 and 0.62.
With 0.61 I had the problem that the game crashed quite often on day three, version 0.62 seems to work much better.
Great (2004-07-31 02:01) Carou
Make some noisy sound with 0.62
Sound in CD version (2003-12-30 09:34) Simian
You can get sound and voices to work in the CD version by opening the resource.cfg file in notepad and changing the audiosize value to 45k.
No sound or voices in CD version (2003-10-16 21:34) The Cranky Hermit
When installing, you MUST select "No Audio/Voice Card," or else GK1 will produce this error:

We're sorry, you have encountered an internal game error.
Please restart your game and restore a saved game.
If you have continuing problems, please report the following
information to Sierra Customer Service:

Error Number: 29
..\audio.cpp:1167:0:0


Also, don't forget to mount your CD-ROM drive.
