Question Leisure Suit Larry... IV ?

Whow, that must be a real rare classic. I haven't found it anywhere. I wonder why it isn't in Twist's MIA list. Anybody knows where to leech it... ?



LARRY IV

Exclamation

Read exactly what happened from the programmer himself Al Lowe, despite all of his jokes,there really was a Larry 4..of sorts!

http://www.allowe.com/L-4.htm

and...

So there'll never be a Larry 4 to find,or you already might have it, depending on your point of view!

In the Leisure suit larry collection released for the PC LSL4 is introduced as "The case of the missing floppies" with a small footnote. And that's it. I like how it was built into the next game though, wondering what had happened between you and Pattie.

no,its in czech .. .cz = czech , .pl = polish

Larry 4 should be multiplayer adventure game .. Maximum players at once could be 30, but project was canceled since Al Lowe and his team want to make a good AI and it was impossible to them and not sure what design of game to choose.Other problem was profit .. Ken Williams tells that if they want to make a profit from it,they needed to have sold over 50000 copies,which was impossible in these days when internet costs too much. So after 6 monts project was cancelled and marked as not makeable.

Thanks.

I can't run it. First it needed knps.dll and knpg.dll. I have downloaded 'em and now nothing happens when I start the exe...
I've W2K installed...

Hmm... yes. I have now the same problem. Maybe the game don't run on W2K? I'm not a "technician", but try to open the dos window, and then run the game from there... I can't give you other tips, sorry...
