The bat file contained this...

@echo off
sciwv.exe d:\sierra\kq6\win\sierra.ini
exit


Obviously, modify yours to make sure the path is pointed to your KQ6 directory

Then I modified the sierra.ini file in the kq6\win folder to look like this...

[info]
title = King's Quest VI
confirmdac = TRUE
confirmmidi = TRUE
cursorview = TRUE
minhunk = 204K
minhires = 375K
audioBuffs = 2

synthtype=highsynth
genmidi=true
audpath=d:\sierra\kq6
audio=d:\sierra\kq6
sync=d:\sierra\kq6
movieplayer=0


Again, making sure that the directories point to where your kq6 folder is. Then set the compatibility for your .bat file and sciwv.exe to 256 colors with 640x480 resolution

I have followed these instructions, and have succeeded in getting fullscreen play, but have a couple of questions that maybe you can answer.

1) In order to get speech, narration, and video to play, I have to keep the paths in the sierra.ini file pointed to the CD drive, rather than to my installed directory on the hard drive. I selected a full install when I installed the program. Are there further files that I need to copy from the CD?

2) Video, such as the opening sequence, still displays in a size that is less than fullscreen. Is there any way to stretch the video segments to fullscreen, as well?

1) Yes, after you install the game, you need to go and copy all the other files from the CD to your KQ6 folder on the hard drive. Just make sure if it asks if you want to replace existing files already there, you choose no

2) The intro doesn't play full screen for me either. The only other option that I know of is to just play the intro .avi in your KQ6 folder through media player or some other video player.
