Where can I find Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge?

posted by shovell on - last edited - Viewed by 860 users

Been playing Tales of Monkey Island - which I love :)

In-between chapters I bought the Lucas Arts remake of the first Monkey Island...

I know really want to play Monkey Island 2 again... I only have it on floppy disk and I know that my computer wouldn't like the game cause its too old.

Is there anywhere I can download the old game, and an emulator in order to play it on?

Any help or advice on where to look appreciated ^.^

    Sarcasm? ... Let's hope

    If anyone missed it, in plain text:
    "Do not download pirated copies"
    "Do not encourage others to download pirated copies"
    "Do not tell others how to download pirated copies"

    And if you still have doubts: read the Terms of Service. Part "D".

    Here you go. If you can't buy a game anywhere, then pirating it is fine with me. Especially as it's a pirate game. If it was on steam, or you could buy it legitimately, then I would be against this. But no matter how you obtain it, no money goes to the original developers. So it's not theft in my book. Plus, you already paid for it before.

    Run it in ScummVM

    Download whatever version suits your needs.

  • No need to pirate it if you have your original install disks.

    IIRC the original game had an installer that reassembled files that were too large to fit on a single floppy.

    Use DOSbox to run the installer, and get the actual files out ( http://www.dosbox.com/ ). Then use the ScummVM to run the game on your new computer ( http://www.scummvm.org/ ) (I can confirm that this works on Vista 64-bit, XP 32-bit and Vista 32-bit)

  • I have recently replayed Monkey Island 2 myself, I just used the dosbox emulator to get it working. If you already have the floppy disks probably just copy the files over to a single folder on your hard drive and run the game's .exe file in Dosbox. All I had to do to get it working in the emulator is mount the hardrive (mount x x:\ where x is the drive letter for your Hard drive with monkey2 in it), I didn't need to setup the sound or anything else in Dosbox.

    I love using Dosbox for all my old DOS games :)

    The only LEGAL way I know of to get your hands on Monkey2 is something like ebay. Until Lucas Arts decides to make monkey2: special edition, its either that or downloading it illegally somehow.

  • The problem with buying the disc version of Mi2 is it has no sound. It was false advertising, I bought it assumming it would have sound, and when I get home it tells me it doesn't have any. So I felt justified when I pirated my copy.

    The problem with floppies is well, they're floppy discs. Do new computers even have floppy disc drives? My old computer from 5 years ago doesn't even have a floppy disc drive.

  • Fury - No sound at all? That's probably a bug. While MI2 has no speech, it still has Midi music and SFX.

  • If you buy the Monkey Madness CD that came with MI 3 and MI 4, it lacks sound.

    And it said nothing about that on the packaging!

    MI1 also had limited sound, it only played in the scumm bar and on the map. And I know there's more sounds, cos I played the remake.

    Monkey Madness = FAIL.

    So I felt justified downloading a proper copy of MI2.

  • No need to buy it again if you still have the disks, just use ScummVM, it will be the easiest and best way of running it. You just copy the files listed on the ScummVM website onto your hard drive, run SummVM and import it and voila! Runs perfectly I find, no fiddling about with DosBOX or any of that stuff.

    No matter which system you use to run though, you'll still have to use one of them to get it working regardless of the version of the game you use, hence why you don't need to buy it again.

    Did you run the game in Dosbox or ScummVM? That might solve the sound issue. I know when I tried monkey2 without an emulator I had no sound also. Hopefully that will work for ya :)

    I can't remember what my issues were, but I had something go wrong when playing one of the monkey games in DOSbox, but playing it in ScummVM worked just fine.
