Monkey Island Episode 1: Mouse not working?

Ok, so I just got around to installing a copy of ToMI on my computer and have discovered that movement is not working properly! I am clicking, but Guybrush just does not move at all! Please Advise.

  • The game is not point and click.
    You can use wasd, the arrow-keys or the numpad to move around.
    Or you can use click & Drag. Click left and drag the mouse in the direction you want Guybrush to walk in.
  • I have the same problem as Totokan. :)

    Cheers!

    That would explain it. Is there any way to switch the control style to point and click? It seems that, when making a point and click game, you would at least include the ability to point and click... Furthermore, do all current telltale games utilize this system? Will the upcoming Sam & Max series be doing this as well?

    Not if the autohotkey script in the W&G-Forums does not work with Monkey Island

    It's an Adventure. Not a point & click game At least you can use the Mouse to navigate and interact with stuff you see on the screen/in the inventory. EMI also was not Point and click.

    Yes all games since Wallace & Grommit (W&G) do. And I am quite happy about that.

    Yes it will. I don't know if it will be exactely the same but it will certainly be a version of it. And there will be no point & click movement unless the autohotkey script for wallace & Grommit works with Sam & Max Season 3.

    script for wallace & Grommit:
