What's up? I'm D-Sane. I like to play video games. When I'm not gaming, I like to watch terrible movies and laugh at them, usually while drinking. I also like to spend a weekend or two watching the entire series of TV shows that I like. I work as a tech assistant to a real estate agent in Austin, TX.

I also write about video game and non-video game related stuff on this site. http://www.tearstftime.com

So I have reached a roadblock. I am trying to play the old school DOS versions of King's Quest V and VI (two great games from my childhood) and I keep having trouble emulating it. I have gotten a few files off of abandonware websites and I Googled a few different programs that should have run them. I tried using DOSBox and WINUAE.

Does anyone know a simple way to set this all up? I have removed all the files I downloaded due to frustration. Does anyone know of a free flash version of these games? I tried Googling those as well with poor results.

Tech Specs of my PC:
Laptop running Windows XP SP2
1.73 GHz processor
1 GB RAM
14.8 GB HDD

Any ideas? Also, post your thoughts about the King's Quest series.
