#7805 closed enhancement (wontfix)

KQ7 The princeless bride. Can you support it please.

Description

Most games I can run in ScummVM will also run in DosBox (though ScummVM plays a bit nicer). One game is plain horror to do that and that's KQ7 and that game seems unsupported to my great grief. ScummVM only recognizes it as 'Sierra Game' and running it will result into an error.

The basic problem is that Sierra made the terrible mistake of only sending in a Windows 3.11 exe with KQ7 (at least on the release I have) with as a result it won't run no matter what I try. (Now I am a Mac User, but running in Windows Vista (using Bootcamp) doesn't get me that game run).

That's why you would make me very extremely happy if you would build in support for KQ7 in ScummVM... ;)

KQ7 uses a newer version of the SCI engine than we currently support. Maybe we'll support KQ7 at some point in the future, but there is no timeline.
