King of Dragon Pass, GOG.com release
Identical to version 1.7 (518), but binary has been modified to no longer require CD-ROM for copy protection. The installer also installs the game data files onto the hard drive instead of using them from the CD-ROM.

Scaling using Xephyr and VNC

# Run a program in an embedded X server and open a scaled VNC session on it.
# For example:
# scale playonlinux --run "King of Dragon Pass"
# You can change various options here, or pass them in as environment
# Log files. If you want to actually record logs (e.g. for debugging purposes),
# replace them here.
