As requested, here is my AchWalk for Monkey Island:SE. Now, due to the game's achievements being known only as we've played through it, I cannot guarantee this is 100%; if you find anything wrong then PLEASE tell me and I will endeavour to correct it!

Make sure you skip ALL cutscenes (hold Y) and as many conversations as you can. This helps a lot when going for the HUMAN CANNONBALL achievement.

As before, I'd recommend PRINTING THIS OUT and ticking off each line as you finish them! SAVE OFTEN and in different slots... blah... blah... blah... you all know the deal by now!

EDIT: I have 'sped' the walkthrough up a LOT by removing most of the useless conversations. I REALLY recommend you play through it on your own first (there are two other walkthroughs on this site already!) and use this one to speed-run the second playthrough!

EDIT2: The rowboat section (Part Three, Monkey IslandTM) can be an arse! When clicking on an edge, try to click on the water near the land. If Guybrush is rowing slowly, you've clicked on the WRONG place... keep trying around that area until he rows quicker. This also applies to when he's running around Monkey IslandTM. You'll soon work out where the best place is!

EDIT3: I've just run through this walkthrough with one of my alternate accounts and it seems 100% to me! The account got all 12 achievements in the correct order and in 2hrs 41mins! That's both playthroughs! (First achievement at 9:11am, the last at 11:52am)

This is the longest, and most annoying, part of the whole adventure. The insults you get called, by the pirates, are random and you'll find yourself waiting for the last two or three for quite a while.

The basic rules of Insult Swordfighting;

- Guybrush will insult the pirate. If the pirate fails to comeback with the correct response, Guybrush wins a point and will be able to insult the pirate again. However, if the pirate successfully responds, then he wins the point and gets to insult Guybrush.
- The battle continues until one fighter has won three points.
- Guybrush can only use insults and responses he has been taught in previous battles with the pirates.

As the pirates teach Guybrush insults and responses, cross them off the list below. This makes it easier to use the insults you've been taught, but do not know the corresponding response once the list gets too big to manage manually.

Once you've won four battles, the pirates will say that you're good enough to fight the Sword Master, Carla, but it's best to continue fighting until you've learned all 16 insults and responses. Make sure you save the game once you've learned 12 insults and responses!


Here's a complete list of insults and responses in the order they appear in your dialogue list.

- Insult - This is the END for you, you gutter-crawling cur!
- Response - And I've got a little TIP for you. Get the POINT?

- Insult - Soon you'll be wearing my sword like a shish kebab!
- Response - First you'd better stop waving it around like a feather-duster.

- Insult - My handkerchief will wipe up your blood!
- Response - So you got that job as janitor, after all.

- Insult - People fall at my feet when they see me coming.
- Response - Even BEFORE they smell your breath?

- Insult - I once owned a dog that was smarter than you.
- Response - He must have taught you everything you know.

- Insult - You make me want to puke.
- Response - You make me think somebody already did.

- Insult - Nobody's ever drawn blood from me, and nobody ever will!
- Response - You run THAT fast?

- Insult - You fight like a dairy farmer.
- Response - How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

- Insult - I got this scar on my face during a mighty struggle!
- Response - I hope now you've learned to stop picking your nose.

- Insult - Have you stopped wearing diapers yet?
- Response - Why, did you want to borrow one?

- Insult - I've heard you are a contemptible sneak.
- Response - Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all.

- Insult - You're no match for my brains, you poor fool.
- Response - I'd be in real trouble if you ever used them.

- Insult - You have the manners of a beggar.
- Response - I wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me.

- Insult - I'm not going to take your insolence sitting down!
- Response - Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

- Insult - There are no words for how disgusting you are.
- Response - Yes there are. You just never learned them.

- Insult - I've spoken with apes more polite than you.
- Response - I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion.


Here is a list of insults and responses for the battle with Carla, the Sword Master of Melee Island™. This fight differs from the previous fights as Carla does all the insulting and Guybrush only needs to successfully respond to win a point. You need to win five points to beat Carla.

- Insult - I've got a long, sharp lesson for you to learn today.
- Response - And I've got a little TIP for you. Get the POINT?

- Insult - My tongue is sharper than any sword.
- Response - First, you'd better stop waving it like a feather-duster.

- Insult - My name is feared in every dirty corner of this island!
- Response - So you got that job as a janitor, after all.

- Insult - My wisest enemies run away at the first sight of me!
- Insult - I usually see people like you passed-out on tavern floors.
- Response - Even BEFORE they smell your breath?

- Insult - Only once have I met such a coward!
- Response - He must have taught you everything you know.

- Insult - If your brother's like you, better to marry a pig.
- Response - You make me think somebody already did.

- Insult - No one will ever catch ME fighting as badly as you do.
- Response - You run THAT fast?

- Insult - I will milk every last drop of blood from your body.
- Response - How appropriate, you fight like a cow.

- Insult - My last fight ended with my hands covered with blood.
- Response - I hope now you've learned to stop picking your nose.

- Insult - I hope you have a boat ready for a quick escape.
- Response - Why, did you want to borrow one?

- Insult - My sword is famous all over the Caribbean!
- Response - Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all.

- Insult - I've got the courage and skill of a master swordsman!
- Response - I'd be in real trouble if you ever used them.

- Insult - Every word you say to me is stupid.
- Response - I wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me.

- Insult - You are a pain in the backside, sir!
- Response - Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

- Insult - There are no clever moves that can help you now.
- Response - Yes there are. You just never learned them.

- Insult - Now I know what filth and stupidity really are.
- Response - I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion.

see Tastefulmrships 5th post down,halfway through the recordkeeper achievements(after 3/6)

its quite a long way to the end from there,but it seems that there is where you have save it to do both things for the two endings

@Tastefulmrship,thanks for this walkthru,i'm gonna use it on my second runthrough if i decide to take the plunge and try for the speedrun

This one's a real nightmare to explain on paper!

- Ok, play the game until you get to the RIVER FORK (in Part 3) & go up the footholds to the PRIMITIVE ART.
- *** SAVE GAME NOW! ****
- Now go up and push the rock (to sink the SEA MONKEY)... complete the game. (About 45 minutes from here)
- Reload the game.
- This time move the PRIMITIVE ART to the position so you can hit the banana tree instead of the SEA MONKEY... complete the game.
- Achievement unlocked.

Your first finish will show CARLA, MEATHOOK & OTIS marooned on Monkey Island.
Your second will show HERMAN TOOTHROT marooned on Monkey Island.

Great guide, especially for the insults. But you recommended people to go to battle Carla when you learned 10 insults (and responses). Well, I did with 10 and I just had the baddest luck that Carla said all the insults I didn't learn and I lost :(

Well, thank god you mentioned to save the game, so I just have to re-leard a lot of insults and responses.

I'd recommend 12 insults and responses, as it's as near to 75% as you're gonna get without being 75% exactly! (Afterall 12/16 is close enough to get 5 points off Carla!)

Also, I've just finished checking the walkthrough (with an alternate account) and it took me 1hr 28mins to finish the game, so you could probably learn all 16 and still have plenty of time left for the HUMAN CANNONBALL achievement.

Finally, I had a few insults from CARLA that I'd never seen before. If you find any that are not on my list, please PM me & I'll add them to the list!

Do certain pirates give different insults? I've been insult sword fighting for 40 minutes and I can't get the last one for the achievement. I'm just missing the one about the scar...

I believe this is the section you need...

Walk to doorway.
Walk to archway. (To the left)
Walk to Governor's mansion.
Use yellow petal with hunk of meat.
Use meat with condiment with deadly piranha poodles.

07-17-2009, 11:41 AM
i think i did it by

left trigger>>choose use..then choose the flower(the menu will pop up i think automatically)...when you have chosen the flower it should come up in the bottom left as 'use flower with' on the normal game screen..and it waits usually for you to select something....so then press Right trigger and select the hunk of meat

i don't think it will tell you or give you any indication that the two have been mixed apart from the yellow flower not being in your inventory anymore


you can do this at anytime when you have got the two items,you don't have to do it at the dogs

It's in the chest in the Sea Monkey's Captain's Room.

Also I tried starting my speed run but I haven't even recruited Otis/Carla/Meathook yet and I'm already at 41 minutes. Collecting all the insults/responses from the Pirates is so infuriating. I think I'll just start over and save right after training.

This is by the way much easier if you switch to classic mode, as verbs and inventory are fixed onscreen.

When it comes to combining items with each other, the new controls really do fail. Usually no big deal, as you have infinite time, but in this particular puzzle you gotta be fast. *g*

Some good tips are to completely avoid anything that eats up time, such as collecting the memos in part 3, or holding your breath, etc. It's just best to leave those to a separate play through. Only do what is needed to complete the game, so choose your dialog choices wisely. As for the insults, just grab the majority of them and the go face the Sword Master. There is no need to have all the insults/responses. I'm not sure, but I think someone else mentioned that pausing stops the counter.

Just as an FYI, I cut out all the fluff and was able to complete the game in just under two hours.

Here is the bit I am stuck on.

I have finished the game 1 time using the guide with Herman stranded at the end. Now all I have to do is sink the ship and finish up for the full 200. Only problem is when I pick up the oars I go to the beach to use the oars with the boat but before that it says pick up bananas when you get to the beach.

The bananas have disappered so I now have only 3 bananas instead of 5 so the monkey won't follow me to the gigantic monkey head.

Have I done something wrong thats messed it up for me?

The bananas shouldn't disappear. You got them from the village and off the beach right? Even after you sink the ship you still need to hit the tree to make the two bananas fall down. Maybe you forgot to hit the tree after you sank the ship?

07-23-2009, 08:23 PM

You never actually get anything out of it by putting coins in it. The machine does come into play later in the story though. Did you ever even try to put a coin in it? I did, but I am not sure if that affects the game in any way later on. If you have collected all of your crew members, just go to the dock.

littlejay
07-24-2009, 07:57 PM

ViRaLuNdEaD
07-24-2009, 08:28 PM
No, once you put your coin in that is all you need to do. You get the grog for your mugs from the SCUMM bar kitchen. It's in the barrel.

Hey guys,

Someone posted an old school speed run of this game on Youtube: YouTube - Monkey Island 1 Speedrun - 39 minutes

Took care of the game in 39 minutes. I think the XBL version will take a bit longer, but you'd be hard pressed to find a more efficient path through the game (no offense to original poster, of course :) )

EDIT:

I just finished following the method outlined in that youtube walkthrough. It took me 1 hour and 26 minutes to get through the game and get the Human Cannonball achievement.

I'm not 100% sure, but I'd presume that pausing does indeed stop the clock... if you save the game, then go back into the game quickly, then pause again, leave it for a while, save again (in a different slot), and check the timing difference... it should be pretty much identical to the time in the first save.

ok its a great runthrough but im stuck on a bit that i think is harder than you make out.

on chapter 3 when you are about halfway through and you see the corpse hanging from the tree, you say do this:-

Click on POND. (At the end of the river, to the right)
Pick up note. (Recordkeeper 6/9)
- "Leave me alone, would you?"
Pick up rope.
Walk to jungle.

problem is, it wont let me pick up the rope. i already have a rope, which i used on the cliff, but i need another bit to get down the bottom, so how do i get this 2nd rope? nothing seems to work.

You need to go get the gun powder and the cannon ball from the volcano fort. Also, you will need the flint (rock on top of the note at the dam). Go there and blow up the dam, then head back for the rope.

Thanks for the guide only part that was a bit confusing was the blowing up the dam bit may be you should descripe that a little bit better got my 200 THANKS!

I'm not quite sure what you mean here, I've given you three different methods;

Walk to dam.
Use handful of gunpowder with dam.
[Use flint with cannon ball.]
OR
[Use flint with staple remover.]
OR
[Use flint with spyglass.]

I can see where that might cause problems, so would you like me to delete two of them, leaving just one solution and removing any possible confusion?

Good guide, just got Human Cannonball in 1:12h

If you still correct the guide you can delete:

- Task 5 - Get A Crew
Use 272 pieces of eight in grog machine. (You will need to walk down the dock a little way)
(why should some1 do that?^^)


Open drawer. (The dresser where the ink was)
Look at drawer.
Look at dusty book.

(you dont need the book)

€: btw you can blow up the dam if you use the lens with the sun.

Yeah, I thought I'd got rid of that one, sorry!

Again, I thought I'd deleted this ages ago; I originally used the BOOKMARK with the FIRE to light the CANNON, but changed it to the FEATHER PEN (that you have to pick up to gain access to the INK).

: btw you can blow up the dam if you use the lens with the sun.
I think the DAM section is confusing people; there are numerous single-step ways of removing the blockage. I'll leave it as it is for now!

Thanks dude. Got my 200/200 on this game. I wasn't really digging it early on so decided to just run through for achievements. I actually confused this with another game which is why I bought it, thankfully all was not lost.

Thanks to this walkthrough, I got Human Cannonball! Awesome work.

By the way, did anyone else notice that the voice of Meathook is the voice of, among MANY others, Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, the flamethrowers from Halo Wars, and Leonardo from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon?

You need to continue to fight other pirates so you can learn more insults. Once you have learned enough, you she will let you fight her.

why he don't want to pick up the first paper note on the tree?

Excellent guide. Thanks so much.

I have one suggestion though. The part with the noteworthy rock that turns into a flint. You say look at the noteworthy rock, maybe you could add "(in inventory)" or something like that. I lost a bit of time trying to find the noteworthy everywhere in the scenario. Took me ages to realise i had it in inventory, because you don't actually pick it, you pick the note under it to get it.

I belive most didn't have this problem, but could be useful to some people.

thanks a lot again, great work.

Just a quick note to say thank you for an excellent guide, it was extremely helpful in getting all the achievements.

As a random trivia, you can also use stan's business card or the map (if you bought it) in the fire in part 2.

The bananas shouldn't disappear. You got them from the village and off the beach right? Even after you sink the ship you still need to hit the tree to make the two bananas fall down. Maybe you forgot to hit the tree after you sank the ship?

Is there an extra rock somewhere? I can't seems to find another rock after I sink the ship ...

hey i'm in part 3 at the bit where you have to give the monkey 5 bananas but maybe i forgot to save cos i did everything you did in the guide and i only had 3 bananas to give him. or maybe my inventory was full, can that happen in this game? this is my first playthrough. but since he didn't get 5 bananas i cant get the idol and i can't get the banana picker to get more bananas. i looked everywhere where there could be bananas. i'm getting kinda tired of this :( can anyone help? i hope i don't have to start over..

EDIT nevermind, i'm fucking clueless =D i missed the bit where i had to bomb the banana tree...

if i remember right the flint is the rock you pick up with one of the messages, it's called something like 'noteworthy rock'. use it with the spyglass then use that with the gunpowder.

Where do you find these items? I looked over the guide to see if I missed picking it up and I didn't see where you said to pick these up. When I tried to put the other items in he says that he needs a recipe.

I can't remember, maybe they don't really exist and I made them both up... try looking in the chest in the hold and the chest in the Captain's room (the one that requires the key), but I wouldn't get your hopes up. The more I think about it, the more I believe they're fake and should be ignored entirely!

McDurbin
01-01-2011, 09:38 PM
I tried that and still no recipe. Plus it doesn't give me an option to look at the chest, just open or close.

I'm at the point where I have to find something to give the cannibals. In the guide it says,

"Click on CLEARING. (Right of the beach)
Walk right, past the skulls.
Pull nose. (Of the lefthand totem pole. The nose is the middle one)
Walk away from the totem pole. (Click anywhere around the screen)
Walk to gigantic monkey head.
Pick up wimpy little idol".

I pull on the nose on the totem pole and click away but the gate closes. How do you get it to keep open?

**UPDATE

Nevermind, I've got the monkey to help me out

Thank you so much for this guide. Just finished my second playthrough in less than 2h.

I didn't remember whom I marooned on my first playthrough, but knowing myself I figured that pulling the arc probably didn't occur to me.
I did it on 2nd Playthrough and marooned everyone. :)

Thanks for putting this together! I nearly finished my Human Cannonball last night, only have last 2 chapters to complete. Looks like it'll only take another 30mins give or take.

Gaining the insults wasn't too bad. I saved between fights so if I didn't get at least 2 new insults/comebacks, I reloaded. Only used up 10mins max. Thank again!

Excellent guide. Played Monkey Island properly for the first time yesterday and romped through the achievements easily.

Couple of moments caught me out.


In the governor's mansion you kind of skip over that whole mad sequence where you just press A. It confused me a bit as I thought I deviated from the guide somehow.

Flint = noteworthy rock. Calling it flint gave me a moment to pause.

If you do the save for the alternate ending and you've got a lot of save slots used and you want to track down the right one it'll be the 57% save.

Riding the boat around the island and up to the cannibal's village. This confused me as you can't just click the top of the screen anywhere like the guide says but rather you have to click near the coast. You know if you've clicked the right bit as your boat travels faster.

When you have to combine items etc I found the old school interface a lot quicker but used the new look for skipping cutscenes.



But it was a fantastic guide. Got the game maxed out yesterday. Awesome.
