I doubt it. Earlier Sierra adventures could be viewed with AGI studio or SCI studio to view their text strings, that's how we managed to get so much of the original QFG2 lines in our remake without missing tons of little things.

But QFG5 runs on a different engine entirely.

Ahh I remember when this discussion cropped up over on the IA forums last year.

Demaking QFG5 is a mammoth task but the end result would be brilliant especially if using a variant of Erpy's excellent combat system. I think it would also create a sort of ‘symmetry’ to the series.. imagine playing QFG series from 1-5 in VGA point and click instead of the old days where you had to frustratingly type in QFG2 and sob over QFG5's lousy attempt at 3D (I don’t hate 5 though just to clarify but 4 wins hands down for look and atmosphere).

I don't expect this to ever happen but it’s fun to fantasise haha. :)

My QFG2VGA combat system wouldn't work in conjunction with QFG5 very well. QFG2 is mostly around 1 on 1 encounters, QFG5 is centered around group battles. I can't see the rite of freedom or even the final battle work well with QFG2VGA's system.

Pizza head's battle took a few creative leaps, but it still fit into the basic 1 on 1 mold. I'm not saying I'd be completely incapable of creating a battle system based around multi-foe battles (truth be told, I never tried), I'm just saying what I created for QFG2VGA wouldn't work well with QFG5.
