Play GOG-"Escape from Monkey Island" on your Mac through Wine

23 Jun, 2018, 21:02 | Posted by: Remi

Well, we were told it works, and what the hell… Looks like Rum_Rogers was right! Wine + GOG + Escape from Monkey Island = your friend. We’ve put together a short guide on how to set it all up, so give it a go if you want. Fair warning: Expect no more support from us. ;

What does everyone else think about this?

    Downloaded the game - great instructions.

    The only issue I'm running into now is the audio doesn't seem to work in the game. Any suggestions? If I'm stuck without audio, no problem - frankly I didn't expect to ever play this game again so I'll take what I can get...


    It's a bit difficult to help from here.
    To ensure the problem is not with EMI in particular but with the audio drivers used by Wine, I'd suggest to run with Wine some other game/program with audio and check if the problem persists.
    If that's the case, have a look to the official troubleshooting guide for Wine here: https://wiki.winehq.org/Sound#Help.21_My_sound_isn.27t_working.21
    In any case let me know how it goes. Good luck!
