    When I get to the insult sword-fighting stage of The Secret of Monkey Island, do I have to learn every single insult and comeback in order to beat the Sword Master?

  • No, you can fight the sword master without knowing all the comebacks. It's all a matter of luck which insults she throws at you.

  • Thankfully no, you don't have to learn them all. It is a bit tedious to get all the comebacks.

    This is because to beat the Sword Master you only need to do comeback for a subset of all the insults. But it requires some luck.

  • IIRC no, you'll be able to beat the Sword Master once you have learned a certain quantity of insults, but you don't need all of them.

  • Are there more than one possible reply to the insults? I vaguely remember playing Secret of Monkey Island a long time ago and ending up in a sword fight against either a pirate or the sword master, unfortunately can't remember which one. They threw an insult at me which I didn't have the correct counter-insult for yet, so I replied with another one that was kind-of fitting. And won the match despite using an "incorrect" reply. EDIT: I'm not sure if the insult was this one, but this is what I mean: Insult: Only once have I met such a coward! Reply: He must have taught you everything you know

  • Flipnic starts with a brilliant little song sung by two computers, with a digital monkey on screen fishing. Depending on what the monkey catches, the song's ending changes. For example, when the monkey catches three fish holding onto each other, the second voice cuts itself off and says 'OH MY GOD, IT'S A MIRACLE!', as seen in this video. Does anyone know the full text of the main bit of the song? And do you know all of the endings, along with what the monkey catches? Any information is helpful, as all I have to go on are some possibly inaccurate statements made by a commenter

  • Is there any way to disable the auto pause that takes you to the menu screen? I play Secret of Monkey Island: SE in windowed mode. Whenever I click on something outside the window, the game will automatically pause and go to the menu screen. I have a dual monitor setup, and I want to play Monkey Island on one screen, and work on something else in the other without having to constantly pause and resume the game. Edit: I found a helpful Stack Overflow link that may be of use in writing a Monkey Island Un-Pauser program.

  • I was playing the pc game called Tintin, secret of the Unicorn in which there is a scene where Captain Haddock is sword-fighting with some enemies. The problem is that the only keys that seem to work are the W, A, S, D keys and they are only used for defending from attacks. I tried all the other keys and none of them do anything. So any idea how we can fight back during these sword fights? Which keys?

  • So I'm farming candy at the Castle's Entrance. I have equipped the Boots of Introspection, the obsidian Octopus crown, and the Monkey Wizard's enchanted staff. Trouble is, I'm now stuck behind a giant wall of Octopus minions and can't get to the exit. I've been spamming teleport but it hasn't gotten me any closer, and more often than not sends me right back to the start. If I start spamming acid rain instead, will it do enough damage to the octopi so that I can jump my way clear? Or is my only hope the exit without loot button and lose the ~2 million candies I've accumulated so far?

  • characters from the first game file at the location your second game was at when you performed the in-game reset.

  • In The Secret World, there are six currencies as far as I can tell. These are: Black Mark of Venice White Mark of Venice Sequin of Solomon Island Sequin of the Valley of the Sun Gods Sequin of Transylvania Black Button The sequins are given as a quest reward in each of the relevant areas, so completing quests on Solomon Island will reward you with Sequins of Solomon Island. Where do I get the Black/White Mark of Venice and Black Buttons from?
