Series Description:
King's Quest is an adventure game series created by the American personal computer game company Sierra Entertainment. It is widely considered as a classic series from the golden era of adventure games. Following the success of its first installment, the series was primarily responsible for building the reputation of Sierra. Roberta Williams, co-founder and former co-owner of Sierra, designed all of the King's Quest games.

The King's Quest series chronicles the saga of the royal family of the Kingdom of Daventry through their various trials and adventures. The story takes place over two generations and across many lands, including Daventry, Kolyma, Llewdor, Tamir, Serenia, Eldritch, Etheria, Land of the Green Isles, Realm of the Dead, The Swamp, Dimension of Death, Underground Realm of the Gnomes, Barren Region, Frozen Reaches, Paradise Lost, and Realm of the Sun.

In February 2011, it was announced that the series will be rebooted by Telltale Games.

Port Info:
Games have been ported with Dosbox Wrapper - Dosbox 0.74
To change between full screen / windowed more use alt+enter or edit the .conf file.

I have replaced and fixed the audio issues in King's Quest 6 CD by changing the audio driver.

I have added the intro movies to King's Quest VII.

Cd checks have been compromised where applicable, and King's Quest 1 has been cracked, but nothing has been ripped.

Game manuals have been included.

Plot:
In King's Quest: Quest for the Crown, become Sir Graham, bravest of knights. Locate and return to King Edward the three great lost treasures of the Kingdom of Daventry in order to inherit the throne.

Continue your adventures as (now) King Graham in King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne as you travel to the land of Kolyma in search of your bride.

In King's Quest III: To Heir is Human, you find yourself a servant of an evil wizard. As Gwydion, you must master spells and overcome numerous perils to escape from slavery and save a kingdom. As with all King's Quest titles, you must be prepared. The journey will surely prove long and treacherous. You may choose among many paths open to you. The more clever and resourceful you prove yourself, the greater your reward

Life is easy in the magical kingdom of Daventry, at least so long as the Graham family is at its helm. The wonderful, surreal land, filled with fantasy creatures and untold wonders, is just waiting to reveal its secrets to you, if you so wish. Take part in the adventure of Princess Rosella, trying to save her father from certain death. Help the brave King retake his family and castle from the hands of the ruthless wizard Mordack, then join Prince Alexander in finding and saving his significant other in the Land of the Green Isles.

Discover the story behind three titles from the King's Quest saga - one of the most famous adventure game series released by Sierra. Let yourself become enthralled by the incredible atmosphere created by Roberta Williams, who drew inspiration from fairy tales and stories like The Beauty and the Beast, Baba Yaga and many more. The Grahams need your help, so don't fear, brave adventurer, and embark on a journey of your dreams.

In King's Quest 7, take on Roberta Williams' challenge as you match wits with an evil enchantress bent on your kingdoms destruction.

- If anyone tries this on PPC or an OS system below Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) - please advise in the comments if it is working.  Thank you.

Installation:
Mount the .dmg and drag the Games'.app(s) to your Application folder or wherever. (If you do not do this they will not work or you can not save because they are on image)
Unmount the .dmg. Click and Play the game from your Application Folder.
With King's Quest VI / VII - they are parts - you need to combine them with 7-zip or MacHacha or Split & Concat - etc before you unzip them and mount them.

How Do I combine files? See @ http://portingteam.c...-combine-files/

Known Issues:
Due to me making a .bat file to Run King's Quest VII with videos through Dosbox - the game will exit to the dos prompt. Type exit to quit or use force quit. Joysticks support has been enabled though they have not been tested.

You need the Logic Puzzle Solution guide to get through King's Quest VII (non talkie) it is a copy protection of sorts. - It can be found here http://klkl.co.uk/20...logic-solution/

it's the same for me...
i had problems downloading KQ7, my mac told me the file was damaged and i couldn't even unpack it... the error is: image files are damaged?! and if i try to copy the folder into my applicationsfolder, there's the error: some files in "911.RBT" couldn't be read or written (error -36).
so i started it right from the dmg-file and already expected, it wouldn't work...
any ideas? help? pleasepleaseplease!
* Update: 2010-12-11

- King's Quest VI full talkie cd version has been added.
- Links are now protected.

*To do
- Reupload KQ VII
- Clean up original post
I know that you're away until mid January, but perhaps someone else could help me out on the thread...I have been searching for KQ VII for the past week...and this seems to be the first successful download I've come across. I downloaded boxer, and now as I download KQ VII, just as it finishes downloading, it says "verification failed." When I try to click on it, it says the file is still downloading, despite the other message. I'm not very good with computers or I would try to figure it out myself, but if one of you might be able to help me out...I would really appreciate it! Winter break is getting kind of boring...and this game from when I was little would be the perfect thing to keep me occupied :)

King's Quest VII - in a standalone app finally added.
Thank you!  Is King's Quest: Mask of Eternity in the works? It was the only KQ game I didn't play and I remember being skeptical about it because it was such a a variation of the first one (though VII is deviates quite a bit too).
Thank you for making all of these available to Mac Users! I have been wanting to replay all these games for years.

However, I cannot seem to be able to run your King's Quest 7 standalone app. It starts up and allows me to watch the intro, but freezes if I click Start New Game or Continue Old game.

Would you be able to help me solve this problem?

I also tried to edit the dosbox.conf file and noticed that data is mounted to drive E. However when I exit the game, and go to E within DOS, there is nothing on the drive. Perhaps that's part of the problem?

*Update* I am a moron. If you run it directly from inside the image then it won't work. Otherwise it is fine. Thank you so much for this!
@harry63

No plans for Mask of Eternity - pretty much against that games existence - because it is an action game no longer adventure.  May try it some point but I am pretty sure it does not currently work in wine.

@SunDripped

Glad you got it working there.  It does need to be on the hard drive and not run through the image.
