Q&A With the Team

posted by Jake on - last edited - Viewed by 13.4K users

Welcome to the secret forum! As a thank you for pre-ordering, we've created this little backstage area where you can hang out with the development team, keep an eye on the development of Tales of Monkey Island, and hopefully get your hands on things before we go wide with them to the public.

First off, though, let's start a Q&A thread!

Any questions you've got for the development team, ask 'em here!
We'll try to dogpile this thread with high quality facts and higher quality lies conversation!

    After seeing the trailer with some random scenes and LeChuck saying "Geekwood" *cringe*, I started to lose some faith in this episodic project, but being a fan I pre-ordered. I was afraid all the humor would just fall flat by trying too much.

    Now I've just watched the new gameplay video you just released, and I was filled with joy! :D The new voice actor for LeChuck is a lot better than I thought he was. The animations look great and are a vast improvement over your previous games. The voice actors... Love the voice actors, especially Elaine. I laughed when I saw the 'I made fizzy rootbeer' dialogue option, as it seemed so random.

    Love the art and stuff, but is LeChuck sailing around in a bright white ship? That doesn't seem very evil.

    Other than that I'm looking forward to the 7th!

    Well that ship belongs to Elaine, so LeChuck must of stolen it when he abducted her.

  • Question for anyone: Will we have a part in MI5 like Insult swordfighting in MI1 and Battleships fighting in MI3 and MI4 Kombat.

    I liked the swordfighting and attacking battleships since it was a very piratey behavior. I wonder if we will have some of that in this MI5 game?

    BTW GOOD JOB on the series. I am now 25 yrs old, and when i first played MI1 i was like 10 yrs old. So im part of ur old fan base. Thanks for games like this!

  • i have an important question about the programm-security.

    i want to download the game at my work because at home i have
    no dsl.

    also i have to ask how often can i install the episodes on different computers?
    because i have a laptop too and want to play at home and on the way ;-)

  • Download the install file wherever you like. Copy it to a USB key/CD and take that to your laptop/home computer. Install the game on one or more computers. On each of them, you will need to initially need to connect to the internet to log in and activate them using your Telltale username/password{1} but once you've activated it once, you should be able to play even if not connected to the internet.

    {1} There are other methods if this isn't working, please read the FAQ

    From the FAQ:

    @Todesreiter said: What if my computer doesn't have an Internet connection?

    If you want to play a downloadable game on a computer that isn't connected to the Internet, you can unlock the game using a Manual Unlock code. When you first run the game, click "No thanks, just take me to the demo" to bypass the login screen. Click the "Already Paid" button, then go to the Manual Unlock tab and follow the instructions. You will need to email us your serial number and the request code that is displayed in the launcher window, so we can generate an unlock code that will work on your computer.

  • This is probably a really petty question, but around about what time will the game be up for download?? I'm hoping I'll somehow be able to get this tonight (with time zone differences etc as I live in the UK.) I wouldn't normally mind waiting but I'm moving in with my girlfriend tomorrow and I can imagine she'd be pretty pissed off with me dumping a few boxes down and running off to playing Monkey Island all night.

    I'm making an educated guess* that we will get the game around 8pm tomorrow so I doubt very much that you'll get it tongiht (We are 8hrs ahead remember)

    You'll have to move those boxes in double-quick time before 8ish!

    (And hope the move goes well, your life will never be the same!)

    *Assuming Telltale, in a worst case scenario, release the game at lunchtime locally. This of course could be completely wrong.

    Actually you're 8 hrs behind (sun rises here first). And I saw mentioned somewhere that releases from TT are done mostly in the mornings your time, so it'd be whatever evening for us Brits. (apparently done like that so there's people on hand if everything goes rear-end up)
    ...Wait. I didn't think that you may have been talking on behalf of us Brits. Were you talking on behalf of us Brits? I feel silly now...

    (Unrelated: the hell? I've uploaded an image but it doesn't seem to be appearing, except in my CP...)

    Sorry, Im in the UK too, should have made that clear.

    So we, in the UK, are 8hrs ahead.
