MI2: Monkey Island 2 "Lite" Edition on CD

Game: Monkey Island 2


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
