Sierra's KING'S QUEST IV -- 'BUSTED' 10/10/1988 by PIRATES-R-US

KING'S QUEST IV is the brainchild of Sierra'a own Roberta (do they REALLY
call her Bobalu???) Williams, and features stunning graphics and MIDI sound-
support! Except for the 'Enter_A_Word_To_Play' scenero, which is really trite,
the rest of the game merits a full 5 stars!!!

So, what we need to 'perfect' the game is a simple patch to eliminate the
'Enter_A_Word_To_Play' screen from the game completely... The companion batch
file, developed here at PIRATES-R-US, does just that! One simple word of
caution is, as always, be sure to run it on a backup copy just in case Sierra
releases differing versions of the software... (For your information, the only
file that is affected is "SIERRA.EXE")

To proceed, insure you have the file "SIERRA.EXE" in the current directory
and a path to "DEBUG.COM", then run the batch file:


That's all there is to it... The manual is never needed again! If only
all 'busts' could be so simple and work so well...
Have fun and good QUESTing...

Another fine 'bust' for your enjoyment from your friends at:

Doing our part to make copy protection a useless waste of time and money...

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
