Atari ST Extra [015] Monkey Island II Special Edition Intro in ScummVM on CT60 Falcon Roland MT32

This time we have a very special treat that runs under ScummVM.  This is basically the DOS version of Monkey Island 2 with the voices from the Special Edition of Monkey Island 2 released many years later.

This version of Monkey Island 2 was put together with a copy of the Special Edition of the games, and the tools found at  The process took my laptop close to an hour to build the resources.  But once that was completed, along with moving the files over to the Falcon, and running the game, everything worked without any additional work.  At first it seemed weird hearing the different voices, but I think the voice acting works here, and I hope to play through this version of Monkey Island 2 in the future.  I believe the ScummVM light port for the ST also supports this version of MI2, but I would think a player might want a Mega STe at a minimum to play, though a stock 1040 STe might work.  Hopefully I will found out soon!  Anyway, this version runs under the Atari port of regular ScummVM!

The binary used for this game is the same one that was used for The Secret of Monkey Island capture, and can be downloaded from the end of that blog post.

This video was captured on May 20, 2020.

This capture was played on an Atari Falcon equipped with a CT60 clocked at 66 Mhz and a SuperVidel
with the DVI and audio output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video was edited with Shotcut.
