I haven't been to these forums in ages, so hopefully I'm posting this in the right spot. Sorry if it's not, and feel free to move it to the correct forum.
I have the King's Quest Collection and I'm trying to play King's Quest IV. The problem is the copyright manual reference they make you type in before you start. I have access to the manual, so that's not the issue - the issue is it won't let me type anything. My keyboard works just fine, yet when I try to type in the answer absolutely nothing happens. I found this page http://www.sierrahelp.com/Games/KingsQuest/KQ4AGIHelp.html
that says "When the game asks you for a word from the manual, press 'Alt+D' and a screen will pop up with the version info. Press enter and at the prompt, type 'MARBLE'. The game will then start." But that doesn't work because, again, it won't even register my keyboard and I can't type a single thing in.
What is going on and what can I do to get it to work?? It makes absolutely no sense that it's acting like I don't even have a keyboard. It doesn't look like anyone else has this issue since I have scoured the internet for answers and the one above was the ONLY solution I could find (and doesn't even work to begin with). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
