The Secret of Monkey Island RECODED
« on: 10 Oct 2021, 14:00 »
Seems I am a bit stuck. Solved 2 of 3 tasks that the very important pirates gave me. Up to here good progress but now I go in circles
Spoiler: ShowHide

Found the treasure, just a stupid ticket

Spoiler: ShowHide

Got the idol from the governor's mansion

Spoiler: ShowHide

Have some training and a light sabre but this is obviously not enough

The list of items
Spoiler: ShowHide

chalice, vase, mega tools, stupid tickets ("-D-"), tickets for the circus, pot, bronze key, silver key, gold key, feather, gopher repellent, flaute with instructions, wax lips, light sabre, idol, love letter

Help with the sword fight:
Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to find some ink to dip your feather in.

Spoiler: ShowHide
The ink is in the room where you found the idol.

Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to fix the grades you got from training.

Spoiler: ShowHide
If you have found Carla and she doesn't want to fight you, you need to get the newspaper to write about you.

Spoiler: ShowHide
The love letter could be dynamite.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Add names to the love letter and give it to the journalist. In return, he'll write about Guybrush, too.


Hope this helps...I'm not sure where exactly you may be stuck, so try the first hints first.

Got the
Spoiler: ShowHide

ink and used it on the letter, at least the name "Elane" (Elaine) is in

Spoiler: ShowHide

I have no grades from training even though I trained - with Smirk sleeping while I used his gym

Spoiler: ShowHide

Have not found neither Carla nor the journalist

Spoiler: ShowHide

Perhaps I need bananas to distract the monkey in Smirk's house?

But thank you very much for the hints

You should have what you need now. The journalist is located
Spoiler: ShowHide
in a window in the street with the clock and the voodoo store.

Right, saw it at the very beginning but overlooked it later. Now
Spoiler: ShowHide

on Monkey Island with bananas, oars, banana plucker and a lot of other stuff from before. Trying to get underground.
Just started the journey on the island...

It's quite easy to overlook a hotspot/location on the map. The locations on Monkey Island are as follows:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Beach, Pool, Clearing, View, Fort, (Second) Beach, River, Village


EDIT: I think from what you write that you have already been to all these locations and just need to do one thing to get where you want.
Spoiler: ShowHide
Is the gate shut? There is a hidden hotspot.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Look for it on the totem poles.

Spoiler: ShowHide
But it doesn't work properly.

I am completely stuck, and I'm just getting started (sadly):

Spoiler: ShowHide
  I've talked to the Important Pirates, gotten the 3 Tasks, walked around & picked up anything possible so far on Melee Island, but I'm at a standstill.  I know I am supposed to get into the kitchen so I can get the meat, fish, and pot, but the cook stops me.  In the original game, he walks off and then you can enter, but not here.  The game says to try to enter another way, so I went back to the beach (thinking I could swim or walk around to the back of the Scumm Bar) but I can't do anything.

Help please!  I feel so silly for already asking, but I need it...

I got stuck there too!

Spoiler: ShowHide
did you find the ladder on the dock?

Re: The Secret of Monkey Island RECODED

The alternative way
Spoiler: ShowHide

The ladder leads down to the seafloor from which you can walk to the back and right, behind the ladder. Not easy to spot.

About the fish
Spoiler: ShowHide

You must revive it, fishbone to fish - you have met the Voodoo lady already, right?

Thanks guys!  However:

Spoiler: ShowHide
  The voodoo lady is not appearing.  I did get into the kitchen to get the grease, but the circus is not available to me to use the pot.  What do I give the troll?  Where is the map guy & the dudes with the rat?  Why isn't Otis in the jail?  ;)

Obviously things are different in this game from the original (which I like!) but I seem to be terrible at it, lol.

A walkthrough for the original game is of no use here. This is a new story...kind of "what could have happened". Thus most of these questions doesn't make any sense.

Voodoo lady:
Spoiler: ShowHide
She will appear at set times. First time after you find something magical.

Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to solve a puzzle at the fork in the road first.

Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to cross the chasm.


Circus:
Spoiler: ShowHide
The circus won't be available to you until a later chapter. But there is something to be found at this location!


Troll:
Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to do the things I mentioned above first.

Spoiler: ShowHide
The Voodoo Lady will give you a magical flute.

Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to use one of the spells from the flute on something before giving it to the troll.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Listen to what the troll wants. There is an expression used about adventure games, meaning a false lead.

Full solution to the problem:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Use the flute on the fish bones outside the kitchen. Give the red herring to the troll.


Map guy, dudes with rat, Otis in jail:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Play the original game for that.

I posted a video walkthrough for this game in the announcement page. It was helpful to me when I played.

heltonjon—I understand now…I don’t think I realized how much different this game would be from the original.  Thanks for posting answers to all my silly questions.  ;)

Shadow1000–awesome, thanks for posting that!
