  1. Some of you might have seen this on Twitter already, but I'll add it here anyway. I've tried to recreate the marbled paper frames of the classic boxes in Substance Designer, and this is where I'm at currently. Maniac Mansion: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - The Action Game: Loom: Zak McKracken: Battlehawks 1945: Pipe Dream: Night Shift: None of these are final, and the colors might be off, as I was just working off of different scans or stuff from the web. I guess I'll keep working on these, as some aspects of the paint-in-liquid effects of the original papers aren't fully captured yet.

  2. Hi, Yes, Monkey Island 2 for Macintosh works here, but I had to use a Leopard Mac to extract the .img contents, and then Mac OS 9.2 to extract the archives themselves with StuffIt Expander. Modern versions of macOS won't extract the old HFS .img files anymore, but you can use the ScummVM companion (https://www.scummvm.org/dumper-companion) on a modern PC if you want to extract the .img files. (I'm sure other extractors exist for modern systems, but since I have some old Macs here I just did it this way for the moment.) I might write a small guide about this if people need it, because indeed Limited Run Games just put raw floppy images with zero instructions. By the way, some of you may have noticed that the Limited Run Games version of MONKEY1-EGA has a corrupted DISK4.img file, which means that the game will crash when reaching the Mêlée Island map. Fortunately, they also provided KryoDump images, so there's a way to recover a functional MONKEY1-EGA. Here's my guide for this: https://dwatteau.github.io/scummfixes/corrupted-monkey1-ega-files-limitedrungames.html

  3. If you want brain shattering revelations, I've got one for you. Both Craig Derrick and Bill Tiller said in the book that if Curse ever gets remastered they would use 3D. Craig wanted to replace all the assets in 3D, and Bill wanted to repaint the backgrounds and use 3D characters. Personally, I think this would be a huge mistake and it's kinda soured my excitement for a remaster to be made. You just don't do that with a game so heralded for its 2d character animation. Maybe it could work, and I just have limited imagination, but idk, seeing Tiller's other work doesn't inspire much confidence that it could live up to the stellar work that has already been done with the original game.

  4. I love this. Those pictures would make a very very challenging quiz. “Name the lucasfilm game from its marbled paper background.” I think I would have only got Night Shift.

  5. Just realised that this week on Wednesday, January 19th 2022, itll be 20 years since we lost Roy Conrad who we all know for providing the voice of Ben in Full Throttle. Cant believe its been that long ago, what a great talent and just gave the perfect voice for Ben, may he rest in peace Also not only was he in Full Throttle but other LucasArts work, he played the role of Captain Merrick in Rebel Assault 2 and voiced in X-Wing vs Tie Fighter. Plus he was cast in 1 Sierra game as he appeared in the 1st mission of Police Quest: SWAT

  9. I've noticed that I haven't replied to this. I guess this is the photo you are talking about: My old version was made from a different photo, with much worse quality. Steve recently re-posted this one on Facebook, so I took a stab at it myself.

  12. MI1's pattern is in a different style, so I'll need to add more features for that to be replicated. Am I missing any other marbled paper patterns, except for MI1?

  14. Hi Mojo. Now that a few weeks have passed since the release of the anthology and, above all, of the book Monkey Island Chronicles, have you had time to read it? Are there new and unseen things? revelations? Small additional question to the owners of the book: A friend of mine, Jean-Baptiste de Clerfayt (developer of Lancelot Hangover) was interviewed more than a year ago to appear in the book, but he finally never had a news from LimitedRun and don't even know if his stake was kept ... Would you be so kind as to tell me if so?

  15. I want to bring some attention to Jimmy Maher’s superb and ongoing interactive entertainment chronicle at The Digital Antiquarian. Though the articles devoted to LucasArts represent only a selective fraction of his overall exploration of game history, they amount to a superior work of scholarship about our favorite subject, replete with rare photographs and can’t-be-found-anywhere-else anecdotes. I get the sense Maher’s achievement hasn’t been as trumpeted as it should have been, so as a public service here’s the full list of all the LucasArts-relevant pieces he’s published so far: A New Force in Games, Part 1: Fractal Dreamers July 10, 2015 A New Force in Games, Part 2: A Habitat in Cyberspace July 17, 2015 A New Force in Games, Part 3: SCUMM July 24, 2015 The 14 Deadly Sins of Graphic-Adventure Design (or, Why Ron Gilbert Hated Adventure Games) July 31, 2015 Loom (or, how Brian Moriarty Proved That Less is Sometimes More) February 18, 2017 Monkey Island (or, How Ron Gilbert Made an Adventure Game That Didn’t Suck) March 10, 2017 Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (or, Of Movies and Games and Whether the Twain Shall Meet) September 28, 2018 Day of the Tentacle June 7, 2019 Sam and Max Hit the Road June 21, 2019 The Second Coming of Star Wars February 5, 2021 Full Throttle July 2, 2021 The Dig July 23, 2021
