Is there quest text out there somewhere? I tried OCR'ing PDFs but the results were bad.

HeroQuest by Phoenix has text but you can't copy the text due to password protection... why?

Someone back in the day was overconcerned with someone copying their copied work.

However, I don’t have any trouble copying the quest text from my copies (note, I only just tried quest text. I didn’t try the notes). I tried the EQP file, also. Have you tried highlighting and cntr-c?

I suppose it’s possible I removed the copy protection from mine, but I don’t know why I would’ve ever needed to.

I'm curious about the purpose. Are you trying to search digital quest text?
