I managed to get Quest for Glory 5 to run very well on Windows XP (with the patches and updates) until Minos kills himself and breaks the prophecy stone. After the sequence when the dragon awakens, Elsa says something like 'i fear we are in very big trouble now' and then the game just closes out! I've tried running it in compatibility mode for 95 and 2000 and I'm getting ready to try it for 98, but if it doesn't work, is there something I can do to stop it from doing that??

Windows 98 compatibility mode lets me run this in WinXP.. for modern contemporaries, "The Longest Journey" and "Dreamfall" might be your best bet for adventure gaming.

I too played the old Sierra games (SQ, QFG, KQ) when they first came out, back when I was just a child. I wish they made games like those today but I think the world and computing has changed too much. We lived through a golden age with those games and perhaps they shall return but perhaps not. Nice to see you enjoyed them too Linda! (Not sure if you will return to this shite but if you do, let me know if you found anything like those games today.)

I played those great old Sierra game series (QFG & KQ) back when they were originally released. I am looking for a contemporary equivalent to those old games. Is there anything that has been released in recent years that is in the character of these series? I'm not sure where to start looking. Thanks for any direction you can provide.

For those having problems playing the game in ME and XP, go into the executable's properties (right-click and go to Properties, or hit Alt-Enter) and make sure that the Compatibility Mode is set to Windows 98.
