Urgent MI 2 question

posted by Otis on - last edited - Viewed by 948 users
Please get rid of this thread, if necessary, after I have got an answer. Thank you.

So Ive got the Monkey Island Trilogy pack, which contains the Monkey Island Madness CD featuring SoMI and MI 2. Does anyone know, for sure, if the MI 2 in that CD is the easier version, or the hard version?

I have only played the MI 2 from the Monkey Madness CD and it doesnt have an option to change the difficulty. However Ive heard that there are two difficulty settings in MI 2 in some versions. So I would like to know if I have always played the easy or the hard version.

I repeat I play it from the Monkey Island Trilogy box Monkey Madness CD. Thank you and sorry.

  • yhea, its weird that it's daylight in 2 islands and nighttime in one. guess they didn't want to redraw the backgrounds at day time. this is where 3d really plays out for the better.
  • I wouldn't say that. I think that having it be night all the time in Woodtick really helped set the mood. The place wouldn't have been nearly the same during the day.
  • Guess the point is: they could. But they didn't. And it still plays out.
    If you've ever been part of adventure game making team bent on finishing their game, you'll know the sheds of gargantuan laziness associated to this kind of thing =)
  • It WOULD be interesting to see a realtime daytime/nighttime cycle like in the GTA games and many others, in a Monkey Island. But if some puzzles are only solvable at nighttime (or daytime), I'd want a "wait" command, like the one in Shenmue.

    lol Yeah.
    And then you'd want TTG to create WoW-like locations that Guybrush runs through and the sun/moon lighting changes too.
  • Maybe Scabb Island is north of the northern polar circle or south of the southern polar circle and it's winter.

    Or maybe Guybrush is unlucky enough to always arrive there at nighttime - if you're taking the travel distance and speed into account, I'm fairly certain that the sailing between the islands can take at least a few days.

    Well they should have made it real-time then!

    Maybe the ceiling's just painted black.
  • Or you can just chalk it up to a voodoo curse.
