Space Quest 4 update for the CD-ROM version (5.3 MB) This excellent update, developed by "New Rising Sun" contains the following improvements for the CD-ROM version of SQ4:

  • superior graphics, taken from the floppy version
  • ability to hear speech and read text at the same time
  • corrected timing
  • various bug fixes

The windows interpreter called "SCIWV" is neither included nor supported. Don't use previous saved games. The version number has been changed from 1.0 to 1.1a.

Installation instructions: With the replacement of nearly every single graphics resource, the usual "patch" distribution method is inadequate; instead, the full game, minus the audio file, is included. Extract the .zip archive into an empty directory. Open the RESOURCE.CFG file with a text editor and change the path specification after "audio =" to the CD-ROM or hard disk directory where the RESOURCE.AUD file resides.

Version 1.2Edit

On 6 Aug 2005, a new version of the update was released. The following text has been copied from the Janitorial Times.

A new release of my comprehensive SQ4CD update is up. The version number has been increased to 1.2. Here's what's new:

  • Added room of "stuff removed for legal reasons" (no speech there).
  • Readded removed Radio Shock products (sorry, no speech for them).
  • Added "Stunt Flyer" and "Dacron Danny" bargain bin games.
  • Added priority information to sound resources.
  • Orbs now emit sound during captiveScript sequence.
  • Removed volume change during speech output. If the music is too loud, lower the volume in the game's control panel.
  • Fixed scrolling in the video driver.
  • RESOURCE.000 is no longer PKDCL-compressed. This means shorter loading times for DosBox users and yields better compression ratios for the .zip archive as a whole.
