I managed to find this article about add on's for QFG5 searching through sierra's site. <secret place>

Here it is:

Plans for Multiplayer Add-on Postponed Indefinitely

April 28, 1999 4:02 PM PST Plans for a multiplayer add-on to Quest for Glory V have been canceled this week. Sierra's closure of the Yosemite Entertainment design studio was the overriding reason behind the decision.
When Quest for Glory V began development in 1996, the development team envisioned a multiplayer feature that would allow up to three players to compete and collaborate online.

Multiplayer was built into early versions of the product, including the Quest for Glory Sneak Peek Demo released in late 1997.

As the game moved farther along in development, it became increasingly difficult to ensure that the multiplayer system would be reliable enough to include in the final version.

In the last months before the games release late last year, Sierra decided to ship Quest for Glory V as a single player adventure. The final box design was revised to represent Quest for Glory V as a single player game.

Many people at Sierra, including series creator Lori Cole, had hoped the multiplayer feature would be added later as a free upgrade. With the closure of the Yosemite Entertainment and the resulting loss of the Quest for Glory V programming team, the multiplayer expansion plan became impossible. Many of us at Sierra are dissapointed, as we had been looking forward to playing Quest multiplayer as much as the fans.

Sierra will continue to provide free technical support for this product. Version 1.1, a patch which resolves known single-player bugs found after release, is available as a free download users through Sierra Utilities (Windows) and on the Sierra FTP site (Windows and Macintosh).

Not meaning to spam these forums by any means and sorry if it offends anyone, but i've been able to find very little intrest in this project which is greatly dampening my motivation to finish the project.

However we have a nearly 60% complete version of quest for glory 1 with fully enabled multiplayer that runs on a server 24/7.

Although nobody has even attempted to play it in the past month.

You can find it in the Games in production section on http://www.GamersPlanet.tk

Thank you for reading!
And again, sorry if i have offended anyone.

It's too bad spambots have nothing to say.
