nathana Posted August 19, 2014 Report Share Posted August 19, 2014 Hey, everybody! Haven't really been able to find an answer to this question anywhere...has anybody cataloged what the different versions are that exist of the different SQ games, and what the differences are between each version? I'm especially interested in SQ1VGA and SQ4. By "versions" I don't just mean "disk vs. talkie-CD" but rather Sierra officially-produced-and-distributed patches for each game. (I know there are fan-made/third-party patches available; I'm not talking about those.) For example, if I browse around eBay and look at the pictures of floppies in boxes being sold, I have only ever run across SQ1VGA disks that say "2.0" on them, and SQ4 disks that say "1.1" on them. Were there ever "1.0" disks of either, or are these the first known versions of each? Were updated disks beyond these versions ever published by Sierra, and if so, did they just contain bug fixes, or were there any content changes (as a result of lawsuits or not)? What were they? Similarly with the SQ4 CD. I have seen 3 or 4 different SQ4 CD labels. Did they all contain version 1.0 of the CD release and they just merely have different label artwork, or are there differences between them? Was there ever a version of the CD (perhaps the very earliest pressings) that had e.g. Radio Shock instead of Hz So Good? Were updated versions of the games included on the various collection CDs that were released, or are those versions exactly the same as the ones released individually up to that point? How about the ones that are currently being distributed digitally by GOG or Steam? Thanks a bunch! -- Nathan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
