Firecracker blows up too soon

As with many of the Sierra VGA games, King's Quest VII has a speed bug. In chapter 5, every time Valanice tries to get the firecracker to the tomb door in time, it blows up in her face.This bug can be avoided by playing the game in DOSBox. The KQ7 DOSBox installer at Sierra Help will install US versions 1.4, 1.51 and 2.00b and automatically setup the game in DOSBox. The Windows only KQ7 version versions 1.4 and 1.51 will be updated to version 2.00b with DOS interpreter. For the 2006 King's Quest Collection install the DOSBox Update from Sierra Help.
Note: the 1.4 and 1.51 installers will not work for localized versions. Localized Windows only versions can be played in DOSBox if you install Windows 3x in it, first.
