General Information

If Launcher Screen is Too Large for Screen
---------------------------------------------------------
If your font size is set to "Large Fonts", the launcher will appear to be twice
as large as it should be and you may not be able to see all of the launcher
buttons. We suggest you set your fonts to "Small" to see the entire launcher.
To do so:
* Right-click on your desktop
* Click on "Properties"
* Click on the "Settings" tab
* Click on the box under "Font size" near the bottom
* Click on "Small Fonts"
* Click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the window
Desktop Color Palette

We recommend that you set your desktop to High Color (16 bit) color. When
playing Escape from Monkey Island with your desktop set to a color palette
other than 16 bit, you may experience various problems while running the game.
Task Switching
------------------
We recommend that you do not task switch while playing Escape from Monkey
Island. At the time of release, we have seen problems while task switching
on various video cards that can cause the game to lock up or quit unexpectedly.

We recommend that you do not use CTRL-ESC while playing.

double-click on the My Computer icon, then the CD-ROM icon. This should bring
up the launcher menu. If it does not, double-click on Monkey.exe in the window
that opens. Click on the top button from the following options and the installer
will guide you through the installation process.

The default installation location is C:\ProgramFiles\LucasArts\Monkey 4.
There are three Installation Options available. The Standard Install requires
195MB of free hard drive space and the Complete Install requires 1133MB.
There is also a Custom Installation option, which allows you to select separate
components to be installed to your hard drive. The requirements for a Custom
install range from 8MB up to 1133MB. We recommend that you have at least an
additional 75 MB of free space available on the hard drive after installing.

To run the game, click on your Start Menu, select Programs, then LucasArts,
then Monkey 4 andclick on Play Monkey 4. This will bring up the Launcher
screen. Click on Play Monkey 4 on the launcher and it will begin the game.
Although it is possible to run the executable directly off of the CD,
we recommend that you use the shortcuts the installer creates in the Start
Menu or the shortcut to Monkey4 which is created on the desktop during
installation. Running the executable directly from the CD may cause the
game to run much more slowly and hit the CD much harder.

Movement Modes
-------------------------
The Escape from Monkey Island supports two different movement modes:
character-relative and camera-relative. Character-relative movement is the
default mode; your left and right on the keyboard is the same as Guybrush's
left and right. Camera-relative movement means that your left and right on
the keyboard is the same as left and right on the screen, independent
of the direction that Guybrush is facing.
Mouse Support
---------------------
There is no mouse support used while running Escape from Monkey Island.
Joystick and Gamepad support
-----------------------------------------
* You can assign game button functions to each of the 4 directions on the
HAT control of a typical flight stick style joystick, even though the manual
says that the HAT control is not used. If you are using one of these joysticks,
it is recommended that you map functions to the hat accordingly so that you
can make full use of the features on your joystick and minimize the needs
to use the keyboard during play.
* For joysticks or gamepads with analog sticks, an analog mode is available
from the in-game Options menu. Enabling this allows you to control whether
Guybrush runs or walks and how swiftly he turns by how far the stick is pushed.
If you are playing with a digital type gamepad you should leave this option
turned off.
