  1. Further update: Disk 22 appears to be blank. Also, I inserted the USB drive into my computer a second time and now it's refusing to read at all, much like the issue @Rum Rogerswas having. Fortunately, I copied all the data off of it that I could beforehand.

  2. My copy arrived today. I can confirm that part of the USB stick is corrupt. The USB stick is supposed to contain the EGA, VGA floppy, and Amiga versions of MI1; the DOS, Amiga, and Macintosh versions of MI2; CMI; EMI (for PC, not PS2); and TOMI (probably the DVD version since it's labeled "no DRM") . All of the floppy versions of the games are supposed to come with both raw disk images and Kryoflux images included. However, EMI is corrupt, as is the Macintosh version of MI2 (both raw images and Kryoflux data). The CDs only include the SEs of MI1 and MI2. However, the version of EMI included there seems to be OK, thankfully. Also, the EGA and VGA floppy versions of MI1 are labeled as "5.25" and "3.5" disk versions for some reason, though they appear to work fine. And the vintage MI1 CD version does not appear to be included, perhaps because it was felt to be "included" already in the MI1 SE. On a much happier note, the book included with the Anthology set is absolutely awesome. For example, aside from the "El Carlo" thing - which is part of a larger design document apparently included in full, which also includes Largo's original name, "Lord Jack" - there's also a memo from the LucasArts testing department about MI2, written by the late Judith Lucero. Ron posted the first page of this as a memorial when she passed away, but the full thing is included here. Judith Lucero was also interviewed for the book before she passed, which is very cool.

  3. I think Tales of MI was on the cusp of not being included because it’s not a LucasArts-owned game and so much about Telltale was in flux for a while there. That would at least partly explain why it gets short shrift in the book. But I’m personally glad the bulk of it is dedicated to MI1 and 2. They’re the games that truly predate the World Wide Web, and the least dissected in real-time by fans and journalists when they were released.

  4. There are no page numbers, but it's pretty thick! The lion's share of the book is devoted to MI1 and MI2. CMI gets several pages of interviews, EMI even less, and TMI barely any pages. I was a little disappointed to see that nobody who worked at Telltale was interviewed about TMI, aside from Dominic Armato and Chuck Jordan (who mostly was working on The Devil's Playhouse rather than TOMI during that period, if memory serves). But the MI1 and MI2 sections are very interesting, and I feel like clamming up about them for now to avoid further spoilers!

  5. For anyone who wants to see the contents of the book (240 pages, officially known as Monkey Island Chronicles), see here: https://www.facebook.com/1436618846/videos/pcb.4398616666933596/437137791466024 (Link may not work? Not sure.)

  8. I've updated the Rebel Assault 2 poster with a new version, built from the ground up by scanning the official promo poster (thanks again to @Jake for that one!) and filling the rest with scans by @ATMcashpoint and myself). As always, a massive upgrade in quality. Enjoy!
