  1. It's definitely not that and it will be very apparent what the design is because you will come across it eventually. I hope that's vague enough.
  2. This is probably my favourite cover of the Monkey Island theme.
  3. I think the first thing you need to know is to save as often as you can, especially before you travel because you will have a limited amount of money to do so, but there's also quite a few deaths and dead ends in the game.
  4. Favourite and "Best" are two different things for me, so BTAS is my favourite, mainly because I really got into the different locations of each episode, the Zombie Factory being a major highlight. TDP is clearly the better game, but exorcising an evil Santa or playing Cupid for Jurgen's monster never gets old.
  5. It is always Curse. Part of it I think will always be because it was the first one I played, not only in the Monkey Island series but the first of all the LucasArts adventures and introduced me to adventure gaming. Nostalgia's a hell of a drug. Having said that, a lot of things from my childhood haven't aged well in the slightest, so I still believe it speaks to the overall quality of the game that I still consider it my favourite. The game just oozes atmosphere with every new background and the style of humour just knocked it out of the park for me. MI1 and 2 were masterpieces too, but Curse to me was an experience unlike anything, it just felt more dense and the most epic of the whole series before Tales came out. I would probably place Curse and Tales right next to each other in terms of the scope of the story, but Curse is far superior in all other aspects; music, visuals, puzzles, characters, it's a game that has it all, not to mention a great musical number. It's not Ron's Monkey Island, but I don't much care, lots of series move on from their creator and they don't have to be inferior, this game proves it in my opinion. Would MI3a be good to have? Of course! Honestly at this point I just want more Monkey Island. Doesn't take away from the fact that Curse is a gem.
  6. Hi all, so glad these forums are back, I've missed this community. I thought it'd be a good idea to bring this to your attention; if you're experiencing issues with Day of the Tentacle Remastered, specifically the music transitions being out of sync or just flat out not executing, it's because of the new build of Windows 10, 2004. Rolling back to 1909 fixes it straight away but it's a pain in the arse that we can't update without breaking the game. I tweeted about it to Double Fine a while back but if anyone else is experiencing this issue it's probably worth bringing up again.
  7. I don't think Double Fine is interested in further remasters any time soon. Tim has been very vocal about his desire to focus on new ideas after Psychonauts 2 is released because he's done with looking backwards for a while. So we should probably avoid looking to them for any potential Mojo-centric releases for the forseeable future.
  8. Yep, that did the trick. Thanks man, love your work. Now I've just been testing the custom resolutions...is it meant to have strange cutting marks/lines on the screen for anything but default? I assume that's just a bug that hasn't been fixed yet?
  9. Sure, no worries. I'm running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) The error message appears after I press "run without cds"
  10. I get that with the launcher after I've applied the update. I also tried running the launcher as administrator but that didn't work either.
  11. Yeah, I tried that, but what happens now is this: "cannot create file "D:\Program Files (x86)\Lucasfilm\Monkey4\Monkey4.exe". Access is denied"
  12. Great work there mate. Unfortunately the cd patch won't work because it can't find the file to update to 1.1. When I hit the button "Update game to version 1.1" it displays this error: "File not found: ...://xfer.lfnetwork.com/worldofmi.com/patches/MonkeyUpda..."
  13. Hahahahahahaha, I knew it! As soon as I read the title I thought "don't tell me" and it happened. I only just got acquainted with that Vine, and now it's showing up everywhere!
  14. I found this randomly on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beFrkiyzu3g It seems as though he's using a program that implements his own recreation of iMuse in an attempt to fix the problems that LucasArts created with their version. I don't really know if it's entirely feasible to do for the whole game, but I thought I'd share it for anyone who may be interested in contacting him to help with making this work as a larger scale project. If it's not entirely possible for the special edition, maybe it could be an opportunity to explore adding this music to the ultimate talkie edition
  15. I'm still trying to process it. Guys...this is huge. It came totally out of left field, just like Tales of Monkey Island and the first Monkey Island special edition. Just imagine what the success of this re-release could mean for the other classic LucasArts titles? I'll try not to raise my hopes too high, but if this is what we can expect from Disney in the long term, they officially have my attention.
