That is strange. Have you tried to turn off your firewall? Maybe it stops the transfer.

I bought the King's Quest Collection in '97 (I was twelve... damn, that's long ago), and it came with this game. Unfortunately, I've recently lost the first disk (install disk), so I'm trying to replace all of the games now. I LOVE Laura Bow! I've always had trouble beating this game, though, and I've NEVER managed a good ending. Must... defeat... it...!!!

I DO miss hearing Laura's cute little southern drawl. The voices don't work on my machine, it seems, even with Vdm Sound. I won't touch DOS box with a 10 foot pole. Bad memories of it.

I'm on Win XP, and I don't know what my sound card is. I have two listed under system info, I think. The top one is Creative Audigy Audio Processor, and the second is SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio. Any help would be appreciated. I must hear Steve's voice again! Swoon...

Ah.. it seems LBII runs on 'audblast.drv'. I've got a patch somewhere to fix this game..

Oh goody, it's already on my FTP.

Grab it here:

I have Windows XP and have no sound either. The game started up saying it couldn't initialize audio hardware. So, I downloaded sb16drv.exe, unzipped it, and put it in the folder with the other LB II files. Now the game starts up without the audio message, but still, no sound. When I unzipped the file, it asked if I wanted to replace audblast.drv. I said yes, and that was probably a mistake. However, the audblast file is still there. It also asked if I wanted to replace a readme file, and I said yes. Any ideas? You are so awesome to make this game available to everyone!!!

k: I love this game! I actually still have the original that I too got with the KQ Collection. The only problem I had was that I could never seem to answer the questions at the end correctly..

Hey, I got this game out of the KQC and recently installed it on a new computer. Now, unfortunately, I cannot get the graphics to work in XP at all. Any ideas?

Don't think the voices are included in this version, unfortunately.
