Hmm, they are made from blue plastic, approx. 9x9 cm in size and have a little
hole in the bottom left corner :-P hehe
Gee, then they are either damanged or you are holding them upside down :-).

The question was: Are those SD, DD, HD, ... diks? 360kb, 720kb, 1.44kb, possibly with another Amiga specific format?
Ohhh, OK. :-D

4x DD disk 720kb (OFS formatted), nothing special

btw: 720kb was THE amiga format, later came the 1.44kb disks, but that's it

FYI: Amiga floppy games are sould on DD 3,5" which are formatted at 880 kB each. Amigas were rarely sould with HD drives.

The stump joke, hmm, i don't have a save game to check that late in the game,
but iirc it was there, not sure though,
Checking the colors is easy: Run the game with WinUAE (or the port for your OS), watch Guybrush' skin for example. Does it look like in current ScummVM or is it like the screenshots at mobygames?

Spoiler warning!
The stump joke isn't really that far in the game. With ctrl-f in ScummVM it takes about 1 minute. Take the pot in the kitchen, get the money from the circus, buy the map, go to the stump and look at it!

ah, right 880k was the format.

The skin color is (if i play it on original A4000) like the one on mobygames,
although the color of the installed game and played form within ScummVM is far
more reddish, doesn't look right, as if all of the actors have a nasty sunburn. :-)

Looks like as if the EGA colors were mixed with the VGA version...

The stump joke was taken out :-(
If one looks at it Guybrush says:

"Just an old stump"
German:
"Lediglich ein alter Baumstumpf"

I posted a feature request to choose between both color versions recently. I find the brighter version looks a bit too bright in dark rooms while the darker version looks a bit too pink. Seems that they weren't able to find the right compromise.
"Amiga D1.1 21.02.91" uses the dark skin color, btw.

I heard people talking about having seen the stump joke in the Amiga version. It's not in "Amiga D1.1 21.02.91" either. I wonder if there was a version 1.0 and if so, was it also available in German? Maybe they confused it with another version, I don't know.

No it wasn't - the Amiga's floppy disk format was 880KB, 1.76MB for high density.
