MI1: Crashes just before Act 1 begins

Reported by: SF/naja Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 1


I have the CD Monkey Island Madness, which has both MI 1 & 2 on it.

I have SCUMMVM version 0.7.1

Everything loads just fine to the introduction, where Guybrush talks with the watchman on Melee Island. However, as soon as he walks down the bridge - when the Act 1 The Three Trials screen should come up - the game crashes to the debug menu, which reads like this:

Error: room 96 not in room 96 at 4697642+0 in file monkey.001

I press escape, and SCUMMVM closes.

What is it I should do? Monkey Island 2 works just flawlessly.

You are probably playing the CD version of MI (with Audio CD tracks) on a Windows machine directly from the CD.

That is not possible, due to a long standing bug in Windows, and is documented as such in the README.

Copy MI1 to your HD, and it'll work fine (you don't have to copy the audio tracks, just the data files).

I don't understand how to add or attach files to my computer, though. All of the files are on the Monkey Island Madness CD, and I can't move anything out of the D drive.

So this is actually your setup problem.
