View Full Version : Police Quest 3: The Kindred

11-30-2002, 10:28 PM
I finally found all the Sierra games I was looking for!

So I'm playing PQ3 right now - this is the one where Mary gets stabbed. I'm getting through the game okay, but I just can't write tickets for some reason! Do I need to have a pen with me? I've looked all over and can't find one. What exactly do I need to do with the notebook in my inventory? The best I can do is give a guy a warning and leave, but I know I need to do better than that. Help!

Thanks if you can help.

>>> govtcheez, you know the rules...

Yes he does, he knows when a oneliner might solicit a reply of interest to others. Now, is SpaceQuest there? Never liked PQ, but SQ and KQ were some of the few games I ever liked. I've never played a game more recent than Dune2000.

Gimme a break - it's not like my post was "LMFAO" or anything.

Anyways, I'm always on the lookout for abandonware sites, if anyone's got good ones.

so am i, but you don't hear me saying anything about it. it's against forum rules. don't make me the underdog (pun intended) in this fight.

How is against rules? It's a oneline, sure, but it's not pointless, and abandonware's totally legal.

abandonware's not totally legal. sure, it's programs that companies refuse to support because they've gone beyond further profit. and these companies probably won't (or can't) sue for a meager offense like that. but it's still technically illegal, and these are the rules. i'm just asking you to use pm's for the rest of this conversation.

PS: rats... no-one got my underdog comment... and you call yourself an abandonware advocate, govtcheez! ;)

just cause they got it doesn't mean they will explain it to the rest of us. Speaking of dune 2000 and abandon ware, you should find the origional dune, it is unlike all of the others, or any other game I have ever seen for that matter.

Well it's VERY illegal - to have it downloadedable from your site, and companies do sue you for that, but they don't care if you download it - although that is very illegal too. If you used to own a copy of the game, it's perfectly legal. If you're just replacing copies or backing up copies, it's all good. No body answered my original question! It doesn't matter. I figured it out just a little later. Now I'm stuck at a different section. Anyone know how to plot the pentagram on the computer? I can draw it and all, but the game wont accept it. What do I do with the fifth point?
