OK, where do I download the patch for SPACE QUEST 3, there seem to be various versions floating around these posts! I am confused!

Thanks!

Hate to bring an old thread back from the dead here, but I have a question: how can I edit DRV files, like AUDBLAST.DRV, ADL.DRV, MTBLAST.DRV, or even BLASTER.DRV to get the Blaster hardware address changed from 220h to 240h? I have a SAAYM card (2x Philips 1099, 1x YM-2151 and YM-3012 DAC) set to 220h and the Aztech Sound Galaxy NX Pro (non-16) set to 240h to prevent conflicts and I need to know if there's a way to change the hardware address from 220h to 240h in those files?

I assume your are using the SAAYM just for GameBlaster compatibility?

It is possible to change the port to 240h for the drivers.

I went the other way and set my GameBlaster to 210h, and then i had all the Game Blaster games patched to 210h instead. Might have been the hard approach but now everyone can benefit from it:

CMS/Game Blaster game patching and setting a new standard!

Huh. Didn't know that existed for CMS patching to a different space.

So use the MS DOS debug program to change the code from 220h to 210h and use the string for Secret of Monkey Island /g2x0 for the different address, correct?

Yes, but i would recommend using a good hex editor, just makes things easier.
