Mac game conversion company
recently noted the release of a patch for Escape from Monkey Island. It’s a new graphical adventure game published for the Mac by Aspyr Media.
“The patch fixes two problems on Jambalaya Beach and is recommended for all Monkey Island players,” said Westlake. “Note that you must have Escape From Monkey Island CD 2 in your CD-ROM drive for the Updater to succeed.”
The 795K patch (which can be downloaded
) corrects two problems, according to the documentation included with the patch:
Fixed a bug on the Jambalaya Island beach. The file “artJam.m4b” on CD #2 contains corrupted data. The result is a white background screen when Guybrush talks to Otis, possibly followed by an out of memory warning or crash. This updater copies “artJam.m4b” to your hard disk, and patches the file locally.
Fixed a bug in the MP3 decoding system. The game code occasionally tries to start music playback past the end of MP3 files. This problem also occurs on the Jambalaya Island beach and could manifest itself as a crash or other unpredictable behavior.
Escape from Monkey Island is the latest pirate adventure developed by LucasArts. The game puts you in control of intrepid (albeit incompetent) pirate wannabe, Guybrush Threepwood. He and his new bride, governor Elaine Marley-Threepwood, return to their home after a three-month honeymoon only to discover that Elaine’s governorship is in jeopardy because she’s been declared legally dead. There’s only one explanation for this latest twist — it’s the ghost of the vile pirate LeChuck, back (again) for revenge.
The game features beautiful 3D OpenGL-rendered graphics, a funny and well-written storyline, and great voice acting too. For more details about the game, visit
