  1. whipwarrior: Laserschwert is right. There's no actual "CD-ROM version". The only CD-ROM releases of Monkey Island two were compilations which featured the floppy version. I've been collecting various versions of these games for years, and I can tell you that Monkey Island 2 is about the easiest, as there is only one PC version. All subsequent releases are copies of the original floppy version. I just checked my White Label Double Pack CD, and the files are the same as my original floppy version.

     

    Monkey Island 1 has a version with CD audio, and this would be included in the compilation CDs. Monkey 2 uses iMuse and never had CD audio.

  2. Lexxbomb I think the point is, those images would print just as well, if not better, without the upscaling. The original size image would be crisper. Not commenting on the quality of your work but upscaling kinda ruins it.

     

    It's like when people take crappy mobile phone videos and resize them to 1080p, and then upload them to YouTube claiming it's an HD video. They should be shot!

  3. Of course, that's not your fault, it looked terrible to begin with (although putting Purcell's Guybrush face in there doesn't really help).

     

    And I still don't understand why they used that version (which looks like they couldn't decide whether they want a "realistic", or a cartoony look for the characters), when they already had a cartoony version, which looked much more consistent:

     

    I might be shot, but Lexxbomb's poster is, apart from needing a good cleanup, by far the best version I've seen, but a massive, huge, enormous chasm of a margin.

     

    LeChuck has a beard. Not a lego beard kit. And Guybrush looks like Guybrush. I don't see this being a bad thing. This is the first time I've seen SE cover art that vaguely resembles anything I can take even halfway seriously.

     

    It makes me want to play the game, not get my 4 year-old to play it for me. Love it, but none of these have anything on the original, and in my opinion, only art worthy of gracing MI2.
