LucasArts to make curse special edition?

posted by jermy52 on - last edited - Viewed by 2.8K users

the guybrush skin in the force unleashed 2 looked a lot like the Guybrush in curse of monkey island.is this hinting that they might make a curse of monkey island special edition with the same kind of look as the skin?

    and then hopefully
    CMI:HD Extended version* :P

    *widescreen

    Of course, that would mean they would rescan and paint more on the backgrounds, and walkable areas and stuff. But still, that would be awesome. And higher quality on speech and music, maybe..

    Actually, when I think of it, I wouldn't mind paying full price for that.

    Oh, and Ron Gilbert's Monkey Island 3 would be more awesome...

    While it may be more work for CMI, they basically redrew everything for the first two SEs, so why not CMI?

    I really really hope they do this...While in a way the game has aged pretty well, the resolution is killing me...

  • I said it once before and I will say it again. Curse of monkey island is great as it is, and it doesn't need to be remade. Do you really want to see updated versions of something that looks like it was updated? Heck no!

    If they make it like the first 2 SE's you can switch back so then everyone wins. Plus I want to play it on full screen agian.

    The key is a higher resolution and better compatibility. CMI looks great at the native resolution (640x480) - but no one works at anything close to that resolution anymore, and it looks pretty bad stretched out. It would be absolutely amazing to have CMI with high resolution graphics, higher quality audio (though this should really only happen for the music since the voices are good as they are), etc...

    On top of that, this would also make it available on consoles and mobile platforms (along with native support on modern operating systems), and would bring in a whole new generation of Monkey Island lovers. I realize that the first to SEs may have already done this, but imo CMI is the most visually attractive entry in the series which makes it the most likely to bring in today's very visual-oriented gamers.

    I'm not sure about that specific error, but try ScummVM - it'll let you play CMI (and most other SCUMM games) on newer computers without much issue.

    That's true, but ScummVM doesn't like the disc change in CMI, causing the game to crash, or the cut-scene for part 3 to have to be skipped.

    Though you are right ScummVM is the way to go, just thought I'd also add, that you need to copy the files from your CMI CD's into a set file on your computer and run it from there (on ScummVM) this fixes the game completely. You need all the files from Disc 1 and only the files on Disc 2 that aren't included on Disc 1 or have 2 in there name. I suck at explaining, but there is a full explanation of how to do it online.

    Hope that helps.

  • Escape from monkey island total change is never going to happen. A special edition with the new Elaine (or technically older) voice is much more likely

  • I doubt they will make a SE for either games, just for the fact that they aren't as old as the first two, and that the company knows that the 3 and 4 can be still be played

    its a battle we may never win, but it would be nice
