#835 closed defect (wontfix)

MI2: Monkey Island 2 "Lite" Edition on CD

Reported by: SF/darkshineknight Owned by: SF/khalek
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords: script
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 2


Hi, When I play Monkey Island 2 (CD), the copy- protection for the floppy disk version is shown. This has been in the game for many, many months now, and although trivial, it is a little annoying. To reproduce, just run the CD game.

Boring details follow: Jun 1 CVS Win32 Daily Build Monkey Island 2 English CD (LucasArts Archives Vol. 1)

actually the CD version is identical with the floppy version, just the interpreter was changed to run from CD (savegames stored on hard disk) and avoiding copy protection. The CD-interpreter just starts by deafult the hard-mode of the game and you can't play the easy mode. To allow the player playing the easy mode, the copy-protection screen was enabled by the scummvm-crew.

However to make ScummVM behave like the CD interpreter just recompile ScummVM after you have uncommented following 2 lines in scummvm.cpp // if (_gameId==GID_MONKEY2 && _bootParam == 0) // _bootParam = 10001;

this is intentional behaviour as you can't access the difficulty select screen if you skip the copy protection

Use scummvm -d0 -b10001 monkey2 or remove the commented lines andrej pointed out if you want to skip it
