Aah, Monkey Island ! One of my favorite series of all time.Today, if you want to play it legally, you should buy the Hi Res “Special Editioon” which also contains the game with the original graphics. The Special Edition runs fine on Linux, I’ve finished the game without any problem.
If you have an older version then you’ll have to use ScummVM to play (you could also use DosBox or UAE but ScummVM is better), that what I’m going to do today.
ScummVM was one of the first runners I implemented in Lutris but I fixed a few things today. You can’t just run a game with the command line, you first have to add it in Scumm’s interface. In order to do everything from Lutris, I’ve made use of the ‘Install’ button.
When you select ‘ScummVM’ in the list of installers and press Add it opens up ScummVM’s interface and you can add your game. When you have told what game to ad to ScummVM, you can go back to lutris’ main window and select ‘Import>ScummVM’ in the menu, it will automatically add the game you installed via ScummVM’s interface.
One improvement I should implement is to launch the import when scummvm is closed so you don’t have to do it from the menus.
Beside that, ScummVM has always been a great piece of software and it runs flawlessly on many machines.
