Why do you bother packing these files as read only? At least go back and repack them properly.

i use linux so to make the game run just cd to the directory and type "chmod +rwx *" without the quotes and run in dosbox

Is there any way to get these games to work on a 64-bit machine?

To make this work in DosBOX go to the folder with Windows Explorer and right click on resources.cfg and untick the box for "read only" then apply. Go back to DosBox and mount the directory and run "install.bat" - seclect you options - then run "sciv.exe"

This works fine in dosbox!! It seems the file wasn't properly named and you need to use the SCIV.exe

I only ever played this SQ game to completion and I loved it. I tried one of the later ones but I didn't like the interface so I gave up.

This download will not work with DOSBox and shows up in D-Fend reloaded as "larry" which leads me to believe that this is not space ques III but that other game.

I loved this game series back in the day. These games had a lot of imagination and soul. Fun as hell too.

I played Space Quest 3 for a few minutes back in high school. 10 years later, I found the first 3 at the local Goodwill and bought them all for a dollar a piece. I have never regretted it, as the first three Space Quest games are my favorite games in the series.
