Quest 6 Patches
Space Quest 6 contains several timer issues. For instance, you won't
be able to get the Endodroid Runner guy to talk with you. Later
on, you'll find Elmo and bump into the same problem. Normally you
just have to talk to them twice, but Roger only says "Hey"
and they walk away without talking back. But also if the game scrolls,
it scrolls to a black screen, leaving you impossible to interact
with the game. Next
is probably THE most notorious bug of the entire Space Quest series;
the Error 47, aka the Compost Crash and Sickbay Sickness.
It happens when you try to use the datacard in the ComPost in Sickbay.
The game will crash and output:
47: Not an object: $0
