Question Weird thing in the LBA 2 recorded demo...

We all know the recorded, non-playable demo of LBA 2, which appears, when we leave the game in the main menu, without touching any key. But, there is one weird thing in this demo: when Twinsen and Zoe' go to the lighthouse, they meet the lady rabbibunny (Raph's fiance) in front of the lighthouse (if you talk to her, he says "My pretty bunny has come back..."). But in the demo, she's not in front of the lighthouse, but still sitting on the red bench behind the lighthouse and watching the sea. Also, when the demo starts, Twinsen goes towards a chest, does ACTION, and picks up some money before he goes ahead an talks to Zoe', while in the game, Twinsen must talk to Zoe', before he can do anything at all. Where are all those differences in the demo and the game itself from? Maybe the demo was recorded with an older version of the game. So, that would explain anything. But... what exactly is the matter with it? I'm looking forward to hearing from you all.

Yours sincerely,
O_Brasileiro.

Yeah, I was wondering the same things...

I thought that it's stuff of LBA 2 (since I have Twinsen's Odyssey), but now I see that it's not there as well...

Probably some beta version or something..

- morshem: I guess so, too. And, besides that, LBA 2 was released after TO (TO is dated 18/06/97, LBA 2 is dated 17/07/97).

How come? Isn't LBA 2 the European version, and LBA 2 a European game?

I've never bothered to watch the demo as it's so boring...

I thought the demo was the kinda "prequel" to LBA2, showing Twinsen with his day to day life.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it was intended to be an LBA 2 trailer...




The demo is actually quite interesting, I like watching it. Note that there's also a spoiler there: the teleporters.

Yeah, if you watch the demo before playing the game, you can see the teleporters there, and this might be sort of a spoiler...

Well... not, if you haven't played LBA 1/Relentless before starting LBA 2/TO (one that starts playing LBA 2/TO without having before played LBA 1/Relentless, doesn't know, what are those teleporters for, and he doesn't even know, who is FunFrock).

Sorry if i'm late about that thread but I'm new of 6 days on that forum.


Stop saying anything !

The demo show three different part of the game.

A outside part (to see the 3D)=Citadel island
A dungeon part (To try the new dungeon style and have a little thing to do in the demo) = The island in front of the Hacendia

and A inside part (To see the interior of a building)=Under gas part.

And the 3D part is after you get the tunic and the Sphero has lost her Umbrella.At this part in the true game,Raph's fiance IS sitting !!!! No in front the lighthouse ! Did you see that it was RAINING?!? and Zoe was next to the Dino-Fly?!?

Well,if not,it means that you're not talking about the same demo....

not the playable demo blafard, but the one where you go to the game menu and wait for a long time. it shows scenes like the parachuting francos on the mosquibees island, wizard twinsen driving a car, twinsen talking to zoe at the begining, the teleporting grobos at the end; its like a screensaver i suppose. but obras, in my version, it doesnt show twinsen taking any money.

It can't be a compressed movie because
1. It would take too much space.
2. You can control the displayed texts like in normal game (cancelling, swiching to the next page by pressing Enter and so on).
