First off -- yes, I know TellTale doesn't make EMI. I also know it barely deserves to be called Monkey Island. But I figured there may be some people on here who have played it.
I bought this game when it came out, but due to a lack of a PC at the time, I never played it. I now have a PC dual-booting Linux and Windows 7, and I want to play EMI. When I tried, I seem to run into various failures, the most common of which is being told the game can't find the files it needs to load, or that it doesn't see the CD in the drive. Installing generally works fine; these problems occur when attempting to actually play the game.
I've tried this:
- in Windows 7, admin mode enabled, winxp and win98 compatibility modes enabled
- In "Virtual Windows XP" mode in Windows 7
- In "Virtual Windows XP" mode with Monkey.exe and Monkey4.exe set to "Windows 98" compatibility mode INSIDE the XP VM
- In Wine under Fedora 11
