Shortly after the start of the game
according to the walkthrough:
You start out at the Castle Portcullis. Go left two screens. Stand behind
the rock and "MOVE ROCK." "LOOK IN HOLE" then "GET DAGGER." Go left one
screen.
A lake with a small yellow Patch of sand is in this screen. Walk up to the
sand and "GET PEBBLES."


I don't see the yellow patch?

There is no yellow patch. You're playing the AGI version. The Walkthrough you have is for the updated SCI version. And why are you just playing the game with a walkthrough? You're supposed to think & solve puzzles. You're completely defeating the purpose

The purpose of a game is to have fun, and if they want to use a walkthrough, that's their prerogative.
Oh, sorry Zachski, I forgot that thinking and figuring things out is a lost art. It's much more fun to have everything handed to you. I guess you can always find accomplishments in being able to read all the answers & know you at least understood a simple walkthrough. I'm sure that's how you play all your games. Be proud

In general, I always try to use walkthroughs as little as possible. That said. The King's Quest games, especially the early ones, are difficult, especially if they are the first adventure games you ever played. So it's understandable that someone might need to use a walkthrough early on in the game. That being said, I do recommend using the walkthrough as little as possible. The whole point is to figure it out for yourself. If you just read the walkthrough the whole way, it probably won't be much fun.
Exactly. I'm not saying I'm against walkthrough's. I get people having to use them. But, as you said, it should be used as a last resort. At least put in the effort & try to figure it out 1st. Respect the original intentions of the games. It's also much more rewarding to finish the game knowing you were able to do it on your own

Not nearly as much of a lost art as being a compassionate human being and not being a constant jackass towards other people for playing a single player game differently than you do.

And in my opinion, that's the lost art that's far more tragic.
I'll take being an intelligent jackass over being an idiot that can't solve puzzles, or problems, without assistance any day of the week. I haven't gotten to where I am in life by being a nice moron that can't think for himself & figure things out. The real problem...there's no such thing as common sense anymore. People are becoming more stupid every day & I cringe at what people have become. I suppose you're in bliss...no longer expected to know anything...just let the more intelligent of us do the work for you...truly a sad pathetic life

I'm a very nice guy, but I have a HUGE!!!!!!!!!!! pet peeve with stupid & lazy people that don't even try. And that's probably due to how I was raised. My Dad didn't hand me anything! When I was in jr. high school, I wanted a ceiling fan, so he bought it and had me put it all together. I could barely reach the ceiling, but he made me work for everything I wanted. When I was in 6th grade, I wanted a toy. I had to shovel rocks out of the back yard to the front yard for two days to earn it. And I live in Tucson, during the summer in the hot heat. When I was 10, I wanted to play some video games on our PC. My Dad made me learn how to program in BASIC before I could play them. He brought home the books I'd need (he worked at IBM) & had me learn it all on my own. Then he had me write some pretty complicated programs to show him what I learned. Am I upset about it? No...I've learned a lot...I had to educate myself to get things done. I had to work hard for what I wanted. I'm very proud of what it taught me & what I've achieved from it all (lecture over)

LOL, sorry. Yes we got off topic and I'm partly to blame for that. Let's try to keep things on topic. My apologies :)
