Remastered Sierra Game Manuals
« on: March 28, 2023, 06:58:44 AM »
So a number of years back (probably over ten years by this point), I started an attempt at remastering all the old sierra game manuals. I only got as far as the King's Quest series before life took over and my enthusiasm petered out.

I thought it was time I shared my efforts.  Here's the King's Quest 5 documentation, in the best quality you've ever seen.
If there's an interest, I can share my others. I have KQ1-6, and the map from QFG2.

I will never get over what happened on page 12.

King's Quest 6.

Whereas in the King's Quest 5 one I recreated all the text by identifying (or mimicking) the exact font and kerning used, this one is full page scans, cleaned up and aligned as best as I could.
It's also a very large file because of it, to preserve as much quality as I could.

I wasn't entirely successful in removing the staple wrinkles.

All the beauty of the period manuals comes out with the restoration. I look forward to seeing your QFG2 map!

QFG2 Map
This is 300dpi. I originally scanned it in at 1200dpi, but that file is a 1GB tif.
