As there seemed to be an interest in SoMI:SE mods here aswell sa seen in the following thread.
http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15516
I decided I'd post my mods here aswell.

I already posted this before on the Mojo and Steam forums:

So without further a do, here are my current mods.


Backgrounds Fix Patch Version 5 (unfinished)
This mod fixes some backgrounds that were sloppy, rushed or in any way incomplete in the official version.
It will remove any artefact pixels left behind of the old backgrounds, fix any wonky alpha's and clean things up considderably.

Note that I have not yet fixed all backgrounds yet, it's a work in progress. More backgrounds will be fixed as I progress.

I have also added the fix for Stan's Store Sign made by Khar.

    Here is the file with the updated graphic.



    Wow, thanks!! I'll definitely use that when I eventually upgrade to an SSE2 capable processor and am able to actually play the game... :P

  • @Griswald Goodsoup said: I'm sure I missed a thread or several hundred some where...
    But I'm guessing these mods are for pc/xbox/wii or whatever platform it may be on.
    I have the iPhone version, and seeing as how Apple is pretty homogeneous with their tech I'm certain I'll have to wait for LA to bring out their update with your content - give or take 20 years.

    By that time I may as well buy Secret of Monkey Island Uber-special Edition, 2030 "a remake of the original 2009 game".

    Anyway is there a pc version you can buy like from LA, or do you have to covertly download this from Steam or something?

    Also, call it ignorance or apathy, but I heard something about Telltale releasing SoMI:SE and LCR:SE on disc, or is this pure conjecture?

    Thanks


    These mods are made for PC, no idea if they will work on any other system.

  • Rejoice!

    I have uploaded a new version of the backgrounds fix.

    New additions include:
    - Melee Island road
    - Melee Island Troll Bridge
    - Swordmaster's house closeup
    - Stan's Store Sign fix made by Khar
    - Other improvements on already modified locations such as the kitchen of the Scummbar

    Thanks for the *awesome* work!

    It's been a real joy to go back and enjoy the Monkey Island I SE the way it should have been from start.

    However, I still noticed one minor graphics bug...

    Once having arrived in the second chapter, you will soon have both the "minutes" (those from the Mêlée Island PGA that you can obtain from the men of low moral fiber in chapter one) and the "piece of paper" (showing the directions to monkey island/the recipe).

    Well the thing is: whoever at LucasArts made the item links, did it wrong.

    If you look closely, the item graphics for the PGA "minutes" will contain the text "directions to monkey island" in bold letters and vice versa - if you stare closely enough at the item graphics for the "piece of paper" you can spot that you are actually looking at a PGA text.

    Yeah, call me a nitpicker, but this has annoyed me ever since I got hands on the game.

    And looking at the fixes already done, I hope correcting the item links might appear on the horizon one day as well.

    Let's just hope "LeChuck's Revenge SE" will never need as much fan love as does this classic. ;)

  • Thanks, I didn't know of that bug, I'll look in to it. I was already working on another patch for the inventory, because some items looked ugly (like the banana picker)
    Switching two inventory item graphics shouldn't be too hard.

    And thanks for the compliments.

    P.S. I'm a nitpicker too :D

  • Does anyone know if there are working mods to fix Guybrush's hair and/or to get the SE voice-overs working in classic mode?



    EDIT: or the location of the narrator's voiceover files? I want to replace them with blank ones to get him to shut up.

    You mean like the one mentioned in this post?

  • Someone should play the new Mac version of SoMI:SE and see if anything's been fixed on it. I'm thinking not, but you never know.

  • The problem with Guybrush isn't just the hair... Look at his face... Looks like a dead fish or something... MI2:SE Guybrush is more accurate to the other games but SMI:SE one just seems... off

  • Maybe some people could port LCR:SE's guybrush sprites to SMI:SE when it's released, possibly with changed clothes.
    That'd be a lot of work though.
