PS: I think that for legal issues those who bought the game shouldn't post here images and wallpapers included with the game

Indeed.
Aside from anything else, we want to encourage the game sales as much as possible :)

I gathered that, wanted some screenshots, or info on which demo was it.

So has anyone played it yet? Is it as good as LBAWin or have they simply made the original playable exactly as it was?

Nice coincidence, today I finally asked my mother for her credit card to order the remakes of the first two Monkey Island games (I don't have an international card). Looks like I'll have to use her again now :p .

By the way, does this release modify the game in any way? Will installing mods to it (e.g. a translation) still be available as before?

Apparently it uses Dosbox, as a lot of other GOG.com releases do.

This one. There was no version written nowhere. There was only Twinsen`s house, all other areas were empty. I deleted it though. I just remembered that I made the texture for the catamaran :D .

Try PayPal. You can use your local credit card as an international credit card using paypal.co.il.

I got the game but I don't see the 31 design sketches or these wallpapers listed on the site. And the language selector exe doesn't change nothing to me either. Also, reading "DosBox" on the game window is quite unprofessional, don't you think? I'm happy my money goes to the original creators too, but either I'm missing something or GOG is trying to fool their costumers.

EDIT: Ok never mind about the extras, you have to download them from the My Account page. Some of these avatars are cool, but they're nothing more than scaled well known images.
Sketches... yeah, there are new sketches never seen before here or anywhere else! But they're the only exclusive things, all the other pics are things that I've seen before, somewhere on this site. Cinematic shoots... well... they're cinematic shots.
I was hoping for a cool wallpaper, but that's just a fan(badly)made replica of the Relentless CD cover in varius resolutions, and none of them covers my widescreen anyway.

I'm still happy LBA is aviable for buying once again, and that part of the money I spent actually goes to the original makers, but this game doesn't add much to what we had in the past, except for the beautiful sketches. LbaWin had more options actually

Yes it does, it's fixed now. That site was a bit of a rush job.

Are you sure? In the registration page there's only a limited list of available credit cards (and none of them is Isracard, which is what I have).

Quetch 2011-10-12 08:20

wtf :)) littlebigadventure.com has the LBA font? cool !!!
anyway, bought LBA1 through the MBN link and it rocks !!! :D

Jasiek 2011-10-12 09:50

Got it to work on linux using native dosbox :).

Posted a how to:
http://www.gog.com/en/forum/little_b...es/linux/page1


Finally no more cd problems with the music an all...


Also, looking at the design sketches, I feel vindicated! ;)

Grobos have real hands and feet, quetches have regular faces and normal noses!

It's not, but it's the closest font I could find in Google's Font library.
The font they used for the LBA title is called "Brush 445 BT";
http://www.fonts101.com/fonts/view/F...sh_445_BT.aspx

But now it does have the LBA font (for most modern browsers).

99% sure. It worked for my brother. Isracard belongs to Mastercard, so choose that. But I think you need to change the language of the site into Hebrew while registering.

Just pointing out, the font actually used in the game: http://www.azfonts.net/load_font/lub...hstd_demi.html

Still Twisen's Adventure for me. :-/

Yeah, same here. Which is weird, because I remember checking it this morning and it was fine then...


Chaos- it doesn't seem to work :( . When I enter my Isracard number there, I get this error message:
מספר כרטיס: הזנת מספר כרטיס אשראי או כרטיס חיוב שהזנת בלתי-חוקי או חלקי. בדוק את הכתובת שהזנת ונסה שוב.

ChaosFish 2011-10-12 16:29

Odd. Worked for my brother. I'm not sure he has Isracard though, but he said it's not an international card.

Kitarii 2011-10-12 16:34

If you're still seeing the typo, clear your cache.
Also, what is this shot of Twinsen on Dinofly up in the clouds? The one they're using at GOG. I don't recognise it at all.

Horadrim 2011-10-12 19:13

The typo is still there, I`ve opened the page with two different browser, without stored cache for this page.

Jast 2011-10-12 19:33

It says 'Twisen' for me too, and I didn't open the page before now. Anyway, this is brilliant news. Should we expect new members?

For that, we would need advertisment for our site on Gog.com. Maybe here.

Jasiek 2011-10-12 19:36

Check the page source - it's not in the code... Despite that, I am also seeing Twisens (cleared the cache, removed the history for the site).

Funky.
