The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition
« on: February 08, 2011, 07:13:50 AM »
And this is my next project. To get the recent revamp of the original Monkey Island, working under ScummVm on MorphOS and AROS. All I need to do is await for the game to arrive.

As you can see in the Youtube link, all the graphics have been updated (which we won't be able to enjoy), the music has been redone, and dialog has been added through out the game!!!

Seeing as ScummVm is up to date on our beloved Amiga clones, I can not think of a reason why this will not work.

Alas, the Amiga will run something that was recently released upon the main stream market! Well and of course that and the new Episode of DOOM II for the 360, if you know where to look. ;)

EDIT: Removed this bit to clear up confusion.

I know, but it looks like everything else is, even the retaining of the original dialog script if I'm reading correctly.

The only thing though (I've not read far enough) is that I'm not sure if the small tweaks done to the ScummVM  source that help this to work 100% (minus graphics update), were carried over to the official ScummVM source. So it might be possible that these small adjustments may have to be added into the Amiga related sources.

I'm reading about this, and have found the source here along with a new tool for converting SE to ScummVM:

EDIT: This apparently still hasn't made it into the official source tree, so an alteration of the Amiga related code(s) would be required for now in order to pull this off to it's best ability.

If you don't get the new graphics and speech and can only run in classic mode, I really dont see the point.  The classic mode on MI1 AND MKI2 on the xbox360 at least are identical to the originalm unless I missed something ?

Yes it is, basically it'll be the same as the native Amiga version from 1990.

You don't get the graphics, but you DO get the speech!! :)

The new graphics ARE cool, but honestly, my love for the classic graphics will never die.

Hmmn you sure?  If you go to classic mode on the 360/iPad the speech goes off.

You do have the "Deep in the Caribbean, Mellee island" mentioned in the intro on the cut-away scenes.   But on both the iOS and XBox versions, switching to Classic mode turns off any speech and just has the original background music.  I'd wager it's an error on the above post.

Um... I'm pretty sure the iOS version has a preference setting to keep speech in classic mode... I'll check later.
