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?

What tree, the one by the boat? I am sure I never hit it first time

What do I hit it with then?

EDIT: Just got what you meant, I never hit the tree after sinking the ship. Thanks for the reply sinfulfate.

You need to hit it with a rock from the cliff, the same way you sink the boat off the coast.

I don't remember ever having to buy grog. Are you talking about the vending machine at Stan's?

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.

The mugs are found at the SCUMM bar. You have to do that sequence to get off the island, so follow the guide.

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.

I didn't think that there was even any point in putting a coin into the machine?

Hey guys,

Someone posted an old school speed run of this game on Youtube:

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.

Cheers for the guide, managed to clock my second run at 1:40:14 for the full 200 points.. I hope they remake more of the decent old games, these are actually worth the ms points

Thanks for the answer, I assumed it would, but just wanted to make sure

Have you gotten the oars yet and taken the boat to the top part of the island?
