King's Quest: Quest for the Crown is a adventure game.

Making it work

King's Quest (both the original version and the enhanced remake) works fine under DOSBox 0.72, but you can get enhanced sound from the original version by changing your dosbox.conf file to emulate a Tandy computer.

The 1987 version and enhanced remake (1990) was compatible with DOS:

[dosbox]
machine=tandy

The 1984 version was distributed with a PC Booter disk that overrode the operating system:

[dosbox]
machine=cga

[autoexec]
mount c C:\KQ1
boot KQ.img

If you require support for general issues, see the performance guide and FAQ.
