Monkey Island 2 "broken"... Item not appearing !

Post by ScummBag »

Well i was stuck in MI2 and I could not for the life of me figure out what the problem was. i resorted to looking through a walkthrough and finding that there is supposed to be a laundry claim ticket stuck to the back of largo's door. Well I said to myself "I know I closed that door and I know I found nothing behind it ". So i went back and closed it again and there is NOTHING attached to it. it seems the game is broken or something. What can i do?

Did you already dump a bucket of mud over Largo? Without that, he would have no need to give stuff to the laundry guy => no reclaim ticket.

yep, get the bucket from the laundry, fill it with mud from the swamp, stick it over the door.

OK i did th emud thing and got past this part. I don't like the mud puzzle though, it really is so vague and there was no clue in the game at all to use the SWAMP as something to put in a pot and then use the pot on the door no less. Bleh. Cant stand stupid puzzles like that.

Oh, I don't know. Getting mud/water from a swamp seems a pretty common thing in adventure games. I can think of at least two other games where one is expected to (or at least can) do this: King's Quest VI, and The Hand of Fate.

Besides which, it's not like the swamp isn't a hotspot...

As far as using the bucket on the door, Guybrush makes a point of saying the door won't close all the way. But I guess you have to be a practical joker at heart to consider putting a bucket of mud over someone's door. :)

(personally I found that bugging the men of low moral fibre over and over to get the bucket in the first place was much less logical, but whatever. :) )

choose "sorry, is this your bucket?" and you will get it without the bugging ;-)

If you play the game in easy mode, you don't have to bother with any bucket, as far as I remember. I don't think it's even in the game then. :)

at least the pun works in English - it's completely lost in the german version as I recall

I spent ages on that puzzle - they're not generally called "monkey wrenches" in England!! (Adjustable spanner is the usual term in hardware stores here)

in any case, you would have to be slightly disturbed to think of using a monkey as a tool for turning a nut. or a nut.
I feel like eating walnuts now.

That puzzle was in the same league as the
"Hush Puppies" riddle from StS2 :-)
