I have Escape from monkey island on PS2 and I am stuck with those stupid parrots, I talked to the tourist and LaFeets son, and am 100% sure I followed the truth telling parrot (Liar said the hat was under the first rock, which it wasn’t so…) I followed the truth telling one to the rock where he said it was under, pulled out the puppets and it didn’t work? I even followed the ‘liar’ bird all the way back to the rock at the beginning where he said the hat was under, used the puppets and nothing…


Any help would be appreciated

Has someone told you that one parrot tells the truth and the other one is a liar or did you just guess that they were different?

Yes the LaFeet guy told me about the parrots, I even talked to them and Guybrush says "He must be the truth telling parrot" When I get to the right rock it goes to the cut scene of him behind it and then skips back to a regular shot, IN FACT! my save game works on my friends copy of the game and it actually gets the hat, I guess my copy is screwed up??? And no I just didn't guesswhich parrot was which....

Strange.
When you are at the right boulder the scene should remain "enlarged", i.e you should be hiding behind the boulder. It should not change back unless you yourself change his position.

PS. When I wrote guess I ment if La Feet told you anything about those parrots. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/smile.gif

Yeah I know. When its at the cut scene and I pull out the puppets it goes back to a regular shot. BUT on another persons game it works, I guess my copy is haunted by LaChuck or something?? And it was a birthday present from a friend in Canada thus I cant return it! My wife wont let me buy a new copy either..LOL the bit...nah she may be watching

Anyway thanks for the help

PS. When I pause it after that happens and then un pause it, it goes to one of the preview cut scenes (the ones you see if you dont press start at the beginning) Argh!

But once again.
Did you talk to the pirate about the parrots?
It's important that he informs you about the differences! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/smile.gif

Could you tell the difference between the parrots? Did you do something to one of them to make sure you could tell the difference?

I established it was my copy of EMI – so I went out and bought me a new copy, and lo and behold it worked. So it wasn't my fault, I did everything I was supposed to do. so <IMG SRC="http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/cwm32.gif" border=0>

Get this, I called customer service and …. The woman I talked too kept asking if I set my 3d graphics card right – I kept saying I have it on the Play station 2, but no!! kept insisting I had my 3d settings wrong, this woman was as sharp as a bag of mice and almost as helpful

I at least hope you got a refund on the faulty game!

I have it on the PS2 too.

Is the PC version in a 3D adventure form?
