Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail! is the last game in the original Leisure Suit Larry series.

The plot revolves around 40-something Larry Laffer trying to win various action games in order to gain another week on a cruise ship to be shared in the captain's cabin.

It should be noted this game is not supported by ScummVM due to its rare usage of Sierra's newest SCI engine.

This is a freeware demo that lets you play only 1 action game - Strip-Liars-Dice - with Dewmi Moore (parody of actress Demi Moore).

Making it work without the CD

The demo demands you to insert the CD every time you want to play. Luckily, it just does a simple file check. So here's how to bypass that check:

  1. Run the installation. For this example, let's assume you installed the game to C:\SIERRA\LSL7CD
  2. Copy all *.000 files from the CD to C:\SIERRA\LSL7CD
  3. Copy all *.AUD files from the CD (including the *.AUD files in the 22M8\ sub-folder) to C:\SIERRA\LSL7CD
  4. Copy all *.SFX files from the CD to C:\SIERRA\LSL7CD
  5. Edit c:\SIERRA\LSL7CD\RESOURCE.CFG in Notepad and search and replace (in this order and assuming the CD was installed from D):
    1. C:\SIERRA\LSL7CD to \
    2. \SIERRA\LSL7CD to \
    3. D:\ to \
      • The "\" assumes you'll always run the game directly from its folder.
  6. Edit the main BAT file and remove (or prefix with the word "rem" - without the quotes) the call to the CD checker

Now you can play the game without the CD!
