Additional Comments

The game has a bunch of quirks not related to Wine itself. Sometimes you can get your character stuck in the environment, most often when trying to make Guybrush to step on something (getting on and off the raft, for example). This can be fixed by slowing the game down. I used CGroups to make game playable on my computer (ASUS P8Q77-M2/Core i7-3770/16Gb RAM): - sudo cgcreate -g cpu:emi -a jeff:users - cgset -r cpu.cfs_quota_us=27500 emi - cgexec -g cpu:emi wine Monkey.exe This made the game work flawlessly from Lucre Island on, didn't need it earlier. PS Same trick worked for other older games, notably Simon 3D and original Grim Fandango.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO Install the game
To install the game, you have to switch CDs during the process. The easiest way is to "mount one over the other":
  • mount cd1.iso /mnt/image
  • start installer and wait for it to ask for the other CD
  • mount cd2.iso /mnt/image
  • wait for the installer to ask for the first CD again
  • umount /mnt/image
  • finish the installtion
You can also use wine eject x: command, but it does not always work for me.
HOWTO Make graphics work
OBSOLETE: This addresses blue faces, hands etc, and more glitches! (not for every wine version apparently, please test this)
Use monkey4.exe to run the game (the launcher), not monkey.exe (the game itself).
Also, setup graphics to use OpenGL instead of Direct3D and 32bpp (in the launcher options).
