Monkey Island - CD Talkie Edition Project and code updates

Post by theratt » Thu Sep 30, 2010 6:09 pm

LogicDelux over at the lucasfourms site has almost completed the patch that converts the SE of Monkey Island to a full-fledged talkie version of the original. The finished conversion is a game that is playable in ScummVM or in DOS. He has also made several patches and updates to the game (Spiffy the Dog, Narrator, etc..)

The only catch is he had to make some changes to the way ScummVM handles MI, and makes it more like Fate of Atlantis.

He has posted his source for this update, but only supplied a compiled version for windows. I was wondering if these changes he has made to ScummVM could be pushed to the main code base?

For this topic, my feature request 3076698 is probably more convenient for reference then the entire source.

A feature request also has a much better chance of getting implemented then just a post, IMHO. Thanks for chiming in LogicDeLuxe.

This is awesome and exactly what I've been searching for. I loved the voices in Curse and was hoping talkie versions of 1 and 2 ould come out. Yay internets!

If I wanted to buy MI:SE & MI2:SE from steam for use with these patches would I need to install the steam software and would I need to keep the steam software once I've downloaded them?

Or are there other places to buy them?

You would need to keep Steam to play the SE versions, but you would not need it to play this. (as long as you create it before uninstalling Steam.)

You can buy the first Special Edition from Telltale Games, however I'm not sure if it's just a code for Steam or a separate game that you download on the Telltale Games website:

You don't have to have the Steam version of MISE specifically. You can use any release as long as the patch is in the same folder as the Monkey1.pak file.

Unfortunately not: viewtopic.php?p=61917#61917

Any PC version should work, though. Other versions may or may not.

Ah yes. I actually meant the PC. I completely forgot about non-PC releases.

Thanks

I would REALLY like to see this added to the official code as well! It would be nice to be able to relive my classic Amiga experience on one of the latest renditions of the Amiga OS with talkie features!

I got the first Monkey Island Special Edition from Steam on their latest sale (pretty cheap) and was highly disappointed to see this version wasn't supported by the main, non hacked, SCUMMVM releases.

Are there any odd legal reasons why these aren't being supported yet?
