  1. I beat #Mojole #139 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 4/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  2. I would love it if we had a separate “Speculations” thread…
  3. And don’t forget that silly clock tower bug the CD version introduced!
  4. Yes, it was in response to my tweet asking him about it. Ron replied that Herman was back to being an old coot.
  5. I beat #Mojole #135 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 5/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  6. Yes, the sound of the waves on the dock was actually quite irritating because it was just a CD track. Every time you entered the scene you heard the same ambient noise in the same way. It felt very artificial. Honestly the older I get the more I just like to return to the original work, rather than try to make it into something it was never meant to be. It's OK to have rough edges. It's not a mistake, it's flavour! (There are exceptions to this rule.)
  7. It is for me, but I suppose it's whatever you were introduced to. I can't stand it. (Did I mention that already?)
  8. You summed up everyone wrong with the original mess and everything right with this "Cursed" remix The original silence remains best to my ears... Re: Turn off/on. I remember knowing the game so well that I seem to recall at least one line being cut from the CD version as a result of the change to the MI2 interface... but I can't remember where. Turn off stove? Really can't remember. You lose the amusing descriptions of the melting mugs, too
  9. It's not the VGA version per se, it's the VGA CD version. It introduced the godawful cacophony that is Stan's song (my personal take, obviously), and several known bugs that ScummVM has since fixed. (I did literally explain this to you in this post, two days ago... ) I remember there was a website that listed every change, but generally speaking the VGA floppy (and Amiga) versions are fine. It's only really the CD version that had issues. (And guess which version they based the Special Edition on? ) If you want to read more about the bugs in the CD version, this post has explicit details on some of them:
  10. I beat #Mojole #133 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 3/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  11. Strangely, you're not the first person I've heard to say that. I think Ron made a big mistake making an "easy" and "hard" mode. (Same with Thimbleweed Park.) Curse's "Normal" and "Hard" was perfect.
  12. Yep, I know... Feels that long, anyway!
  13. And 57.2% of facts are made of up on the spot
  14. Reminds me of Twin Peaks, actually. It was the critical hit of the year in 1990. Nominated for 6 Emmys, more than anyone else... and they didn't get one.
  15. Because a) hype = more sales and b) it's probably still not finished (I'd expect a Ron/Dave post about going "gold" when all those bugs were finally squished).
  16. I should have gotten it in 3! I beat #Mojole #132 and all I got was this stupid t-shirt. 4/6 https://funzone.mixnmojo.com/Mojole/
  17. I loved, loved, loved Psychonauts 2. It was the game the world needed after all those lockdowns, but it also just absolutely fantastic in its own right. DoubleFine's games tend to have a little bit of (forgivable) jank, but this was such an incredibly slick experience from beginning to end. Absolutely gorgeous. I've said it before, but I'd love to the see the original remastered with the same level of fidelity... because it was beautiful. It's a crime that it didn't snag a single BAFTA, too.
  18. It does basically imply everything but a wedding, though... I agree that Elaine being head over heels for Guybrush felt a bit wrong, but Curse sets he giddy tone from the first scene ("the only man I've ever loved"). I guess the writers needed one less thing to talk the audience through: "Let's just revert Elaine back to Monkey 1 so we don't have to explain ANOTHER thing!" Nice catch with the wedding anxiety theme!
  19. Yes, it's true they removed copy protection... although I can't remember if they removed Lite mode? Is that true? I have my The Monkey Island Bounty Pack CD somewhere. I presume it's the same version included on that?
  20. Half-remembered nonsense. There is no "MI2 CD" version for one thing, secondly it was only the Amiga version that faded before the line was seen. The line was always there, just nobody noticed the bug... which inadvertently led to a generation of European gamers to be convinced there was no other explanation to the ending. Read more here: It was actually added (by a totally different composer -- who also remixed the music tracks so they looped less frequently). It was added... along with many bugs (that ScummVM now fixes). Yes, slight variations to the music, as mentioned a few posts above yours:
  21. But the correct answer has all the likes...
  22. It does look like release date is imminent, and that September might be likely... a month or so of hard marketing before release. And because Ron likes to be a bit contrary, the date will be the day before "talk like a pirate day".
