King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride was the seventh game in the King's Quest series.

The game begins when, unhappy at her mother's urgings to grow up and get married, Princess Rosella follows a flying seahorse through a portal to the land of Eldritch. Queen Valanice follows, but they are separated when Rosella is pulled out of the portal part-way through, getting transformed into a troll and engaged to the troll king in the process.

The game then alternates between the two, with Valanice searching for Rosella while Rosella must find the king of the trolls, discover a way to return to normal and get back to Daventry, and save Eldritch from the evil sorceress Malicia.


Required data files

For more information on how ScummVM uses game data files, see the user documentation.

WARNING: Unlike other games, SCI games have significant variation in the naming of required files.

They also can load supplementary files by resource maps, so it is recommended to keep all files in the game data directory from the CD.

Unless otherwise specified, do NOT remove any file from the directory, even if it does not appear on the following list, since this will likely cause weird bugs.

Copy all files from each disk or CD to the game directory. Some games need additional work:

Games with multiple CDs

  • Directories that exist on multiple discs (e.g. ROBOT and VMD directories) must be merged together, not replaced.
  • Rename the RESOURCE.SFX from each CD to RESSFX.00<cdnumber>, and the RESOURCE.AUD from each CD to RESAUD.00<cdnumber>, to match the corresponding RESSCI.00<cdnumber> file that exists on each CD.
  • It should be safe to replace any other files from later CDs that were copied already from earlier CDs.

Simultaneous speech and subtitles

In ScummVM, it is possible to enjoy a combined mode, where both speech and text are shown at the same time.

There is no in-game option to toggle speech and text. Only ScummVM's audio options can be used to toggle this feature. Note that the subtitles were disabled in the official release of this game, so some subtitles may be wrong or missing.
