game explorer
« on: August 27, 2011, 12:48:26 PM »

when I installed king's quest 1, 2, 3 they all got added to windows game explorer with nice box art, but Al Emmo did not is there away I can get it to show up? I tried dragging and dropping but it did not show with box art and it went in to unspecified and not adventure.

That is strange. It should show an icon in the Game Explorer once the game is installed.

I just double-checked and the game explorer icon is definitely set up to be compiled into the game settings and the correct options are set to utlize it in Windows.

However, the game was compiled with a different version of the AGS engine than the King's Quest remakes were, so perhaps a bug or oversight crept into the engine between builds.  Given this, I'm not sure that there's any way to make the icon appear in the Game Explorer.

Maybe someone could shed some light on this if you post the AGS technical forum:
