  • DOSBox GOG version last published 2 months, 1 week ago

    Uses the files from the Windows installer from GOG.

    To get better quality MIDI audio (might need to install additional packages):
    I - Need to install fluid-soundfont-gm and fluidsynth.
    For Mint 19:
    sudo apt install -y fluid-soundfont-gm fluidsynth
    II - Open terminal and run the command (needs to be run each time you want to play):
    fluidsynth -l -s -i -aalsa -o audio.alsa.device=default /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2
    III - Start the game.

    For lower quality MIDI audio (no additional packages):
    I - Run the game and you'll get a menu
    II - Select '2' for VGA version settings (or 4 if you want EGA version)
    III - Select 'Music' --> Soundblaster / AdLib Card (or compabibles)
    IV - Accept these choies and save configuration
    The setup only needs to be done once. You can now run the game and select '1' for VGA version (or 3 if you want EGA version)

    You also may get errors in regards to dosbox dll shared libraries. Install the dosbox package from your distro software repository.

Quest for Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero is a remake of Hero's Quest: So You Want To Be A Hero.

The remake features 256-color VGA graphics. Locations have been re-drawn, and character portraits appear during conversations. This version also has an icon-based interface instead of the text input of the original, very similar to the one used by Sierra for their adventure titles. The player selects dialogue choices from a dialogue menu, as opposed to typing in conversation topics in the earlier release. A few changes have been made to the dialogue, adding (or altering) some of the easter eggs and references to other games.

Combat now features clay models for the enemies and stop-motion animation. The perspective has been switched to an over-the-shoulder view farther away from the player. Battle commands (two types of attacks, parry, and dodge) are displayed as icons on a shield in the corner of the screen. The player can switch to the spell menu at any time, and also click the middle of the screen to escape from combat.
