News: Sierra Adventures on a CoCo 3

As I get caught up on reading the lists and forums, I'll have to post some old news. Thanks once again to Briza for pointing out this exciting news!

Guillaume Major has done a remarkable thing: He's gotten the older Sierra games to run on the CoCo 3! Running so far are King's Quest 1 & 2, and Space Quest 1 & 2. He's even put up the various utilities he's using to get these guys working. Check them out at:

Hi Captcpu,

Yeah, even better now, Major has ported over Kings quest 4 and police quest 1 over to the coco 3, now the software market is looking great.
Hopefully, we'll see Police Quest 2 and a couple of the others over as well, wonder other little sierra goodies are waiting to be ported.

See, this stuff is way too cool! :) I really have to dig out and repair that wrecked 512K CoCo I have lurking around here somewhere. I wanna play these!

Angel's Luck,
Capt

PS Anyone got a spare 512K upgrade they want to unload? :)

Hi Captcpu and Rodder,

Hows this, Now Major has ported over 4 more Sierra Classics, now we have Gold Runner, Black Cauldron, Man Hunter 1 and 2 as well, This year has been a Beauty for Coco 3 users, I was hoping for new material, I guess Major stood up and made himself noticed to all us coco 3 game players.
Hey Major, got anymore surprises for us.

that's freakin' awesome! :) I just order up a whole mess of 5 1/4" floppy drives, one of which is sure to work in my PC. With luck, I'll be playing these on my suped-up 512K CoCo soon! Fun stuff!

Angel's Luck,
Capt.
