Great job guys!!! I hope many out there are going to take the time to soak in this recreation of a great game (lol, I was half expecting to see a post on here saying "finished, whats next"?) :rollin

But yeah guys thanks for all the work you have put in, (ive had a great look around shapeir) and this truley lives up to the fans expectations! But most of all thanks for putting up with all of us to this point, with all the questions and constant nagging for a release and so on.

It was worth the wait, WWOO!!!! ;)

The release date sucks.

On a similar note, although I've finished moving, I won't have power until Friday. It does kinda suck (from my standpoint) that I had to miss the opening party, and will be unable to play QFG2VGA for almost another week.

I just barely found out that it is available. I'm excited, but at work right now. I'll be playing tonight :)

I'm surprised that nobody has posted any "just beat it" posts.

A new commercially released game through Himalaya Studios, I would say is most likely. There are many other groups doing remakes though. See my thread here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=11481

Hurrah! This has got to be the fastest I've gone from some-times lurker to newly registered member to date. And I'm off to download and play this...probably for the rest of the night.

Pleasant surprise when I dropped by today.

Muchos Kudos!

Hello Everyone! We hope you've had an incredible time playing Quest for Glory II!

I've moved our original update thread here into the main Quest for Glory II forum. You'll want to keep your eyes peeled tomorrow afternoon and in the coming weeks for several new announcements. Please excuse my tardiness. I've been either sleeping, playing Quest for Glory II, or catching up to real life. ;) Here's what's coming:

...............................

- Behind the Scenes with the Quest for Glory II "Battle System" : An interview with Stijn Van Empel

- The "Abdulla Doo's Amazing Fan Contest" will be posted in the Fan Section (finally! for all you starving artists.)

- The original Quest for Glory II "Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School" teaser site along with downloadable goodies will be re-uploaded to the site for those who missed them. Includes:
* The QFG2 Graduating Hero Certificate (you will find your copy in the "Course 6" class page. Be sure to post your photos in the "Graduating Class Photo Sharing" thread in this forum!)
* Lady Pyro's Color-A-Hero pages
* Battle Class 101
* all the original course brouhaha and nonsense for anyone who enjoys brouhaha and nonsense.

- The Quest for Glory II poster update! (for everyone and anyone who has or will be ordering posters, this update will cover it all.)

- and maybe one more surprise... we'll see how much time we have before we get the itch to get back to our own travels in Shapeir.

...............................

If you haven't seen the new "Adventure Classic Gaming" interview with the QFG2 Development Team, be sure to check it out here!

Stick around. We're not done with you YET. If you are contest hungry, this is the update for you - loyal fans will be rewarded handsomely... there are, in fact, TWO contests. More to come!

Adieu, Bon Voyage, Muchos Besos,
eriq

If I actually had visual artistic talent, I'd enter the art contest for those Grand Prizes. Nice haul.

Alright, Version1.1 of the Quest for Glory II Remake is now live on the site and ready for download. Point your browser to the downloads page to get it.

Warning: the new version invalidates all save games from v1.0, so please keep this in mind when upgrading.

Also, remember to uninstall the previous version of the game before installing this new version.

The new release contains the following changes:

BUGS FIXED SINCE VERSION 1.0 (SPOILERS BELOW)
-------------------------------------------------
-Fixed various in-game spelling and grammar issues.
-Fixed various Game Manual spelling and grammar issues.

-Fixed the unintended 'Game Over' scenario when clicking any inventory item on the Shapeirian guard, Jabbar bin Ma'amar.

-Fixed the icon bar disappearing when saving the game in the alley outside Aziza's house.
-Fixed an exploit in being able to boost Honor too quickly by greeting Rakeesh repeatedly.

-Fixed a fatal crash when filling and emptying the basket with sand in the desert.
-Fixed a door in the simplified alley system from acting like a dropped lamp when interacting with it.
-Fixed a freeze-up when dying at midnight on day 16 if the game tried to auto-send the Hero back to the Inn to meet the caravan.
-Fixed an oversight where Harik wouldn't warn about not purchasing any more tails/claws if you offered him the exact amount required to reach his cap.
-Fixed the Hero getting stuck occasionally when standing from the table at the Blue Parrot Inn.
-Fixed a glitch where winning Force Bolt Flurry after nightfall caused the Hero to leave Keapon's shop before being given his prize.
-Fixed a glitch that caused the battle victory music to play when the music slider was set to the very bottom.
-Fixed being able to tell Aziza that Omar sent you before you have met him.
-Fixed the spelling of Jamil Darb for Beauty Avenue.
-Fixed Ali Fakir's speech textboxes from recurring when trying to access the icon bar.
-Fixed a glitch saying that a merchant is watching when picking an alley door's lock when the stall is vacant.

-Fixed being able to bring up the Restart Game menu on the title screen, character select screen, and stats assignment screen.
-Fixed a fatal crash that could occur when getting burnt during the Fire Elemental encounter.
-Fixed a bug where the "You are so exhausted everything hurts" message could appear immediately after resting or sleeping.
-Fixed sleeping at Julanar's alcove causing the Hero to clip through rocks and walls.
-Fixed a freeze-up that could occur when Issur kicked you out of his Weapons Shop.
-Fixed a fatal crash that could occur when exiting a desert screen which gave the message "Error: MoveCharacter: character not in current room".
-Fixed a freeze-up which occurred when mounting the saurus in the caged beast screen.
-Fixed a bug where placing the lamp on the alley floor captured the Fire Elemental after it had already retreated back to the Gate Plaza.
-Fixed a fatal crash that occurred when pressing CTRL-J to access the diary while mounted on the saurus.
-Fixed Shema prematurely talking about not serving tea on account of the Water Elemental on day 12.
-Fixed a bug where it was possible to start the game as a Fighter with two Broadswords.
-Fixed a bug where challenging Uhura to combat one second before nightfall caused the Hero to be sent outside, resulting in a series of graphical glitches.
-Fixed Alichica's directions to the moneychanger for the simplified alleyway system.
-Fixed a bug that allowed the compass to be turned on when the Death GUI was on screen.
-Fixed a minor text/graphical positioning glitch in a Death GUI in the Wizard's endgame ritual.

-Fixed it so that imported characters will now be given a Thieves' License if they have either a lock-pick or toolkit.
-Fixed it so that clicking the Walk icon from the icon bar now cancels out the last-cast spell.
-Fixed the mouse pointer from reverting to the Walk icon if F5 or F7 was pressed while the arrow pointer was hovering over an alley exit.
-Fixed a graphical glitch with the Hero's sprite that could occur if a monster made contact as the game simultaneously triggered a screen change.
-Fixed the icon bar from popping up while Levitating/climbing the Magic Rope if the options menu was open.
-Fixed it so that patrolling night guards will catch you trying to pick the locks on the Plaza doors while the guard is only partially in the screen.
-Fixed an incorrect caged beast description from appearing after the beast was dead or gone from the cage.
-Fixed a bug with stat initialization and the Communication skill at the start of the game.

-Added the ability to press the Escape key to exit Uhura's combat tutorial.
-Added some missing functionality (and a missing Death Message) for being able to turn on/off the lamp in the Forbidden City screens.
-Added the thief-only ability to toss daggers in rapid succession during battle.
-Added combat functionality so that monsters are slower to react on the "easy" difficulty level. A random 1-point damage bonus is also added to player attacks.

Have fun!

We are working on a new AGD site as well as companion sites for both the original King's Quest releases. When they're posted, fans who have signed up for the official newsletter will be notified first. They'll be available when they're ready! ;)
