Agreed. The one on LucasArts' website says "posted 11/00"
The one at mixnmojo says "November 3rd, 2007"
The mixnmojo one also says:
"A replacement installer (setup program) for Escape From Monkey Island. The installer that comes with the game can be problematic with newer versions of Windows and refuses to work at all on 64 bit Windows.
This installer works on both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows and has been tested on Windows XP and Vista. It should work fine with all Windows versions though.
It performs a full install of the game and comes with my Escape From Monkey Island Launcher – which adds extra features beyond those in the game’s original launcher."
I got it to work on my 64bit Windows 7
. Trust me. This new setup file works.
I used the new EMI Launcher
from quick.mixnmojo.com to get EMI to run windowed for this screenshot, but to actually play the game, I just have my Windows Shortcut run the Monkey4.exe (or Monkey.exe, which is the original launcher, either one works) file to run the game fullscreen without asking me, and it works like a charm.
Incidentally, I did at one time use mixnmojo's new EMI Launcher
to run EMI in a higher resolutionthan the default (640x480), and it didn't work well at all
. The cutscenes screw up because they try to play in 640x480 anyway.
The default resolution works fine, so you don't really need the new launcher at all, you just need to install the game with the new setup files.
