stuff: Gabriel Knight 2 demo released in the end of 1994, featuring
three AVI clips (Howling wolves, Sierra moon logo, and GK2 promo), a
couple of rare pictures of the in-game locations, an ambience
soundtrack for slideshow and a user-friendly interface.
In order to run the application under XP please set up the
compatibility mode first: extract the archive, right click on the
SCIW.EXE, go to Compatibility, set “run this program in compatibility
mode” - Windows 95, and set “run in 256 colors” in Display Settings.
Run the application. To get rid of the annoying popup window inside -
run setup once, install the program into your hard drive then use the
created shortcut to run the GK2 demo.
However, you may have an application crash while watching the slideshow. In that case you have to overwrite 300.AUD file by this one. The problem will be fixed, but unfortunately the sound will be off.
