  LeoLitz

Firstly, hi, I'm Leolitz, in the last few days I tried to speedrun Monkey Island (before I submit a run I want to have a semi-decent time first), I might be wrong but I noticed a couple of errors in the guide, the first dialogue with the shopkeaper should be 3,1,1,1,1,2 instead of 3,1,1,2 and the last dialogue with Stan should be 3,3,1... instead of 3,4,1...

I also wanted to add a small optimization that I've found, when the shopkeaper opens the safe there's no need to see the last number of the combination, once you enter the first 3 you just have to push until the safe opens, this way the shopkeaper's animation can be skipped earlier

Sorry, Stan's dialogue is ok, for some reason in one of my savestates that dialogue is a bit different, but buy following the guide there should be no problems (at least I understand why I've lost a couple of runs on Stan)

Thanks for the advice. I have corrected the 1st shopkeeper dialogue numbers.

Also brilliant strat on the safe, can't believe I didn't realise that before XD

I just verified your run. Very good. Welcome to the leaderboards.

Although I would recommend you (and anyone running this game) download UrQuans version of ScummVM 2.1.0 here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DhD9QwcOuUMATDCo1TIZMO3hpC1MfvZk/view

It has been optimized to run as frame perfect as possible and is almost 2 minutes faster over the course of the run.

Also feel free to join the Speedy Adventures Discord server https://discord.gg/ZQm3X2E, where we have lots of fellow runners from all sorts of point and click games.
