Monkey Island 2: Desktop-Stan

I've made a screen mate for you:
Go to download page



its Stan from Monkey Island. You can download it from the link above. Maybe anyone likes it^^
The site is German, so just click download and you'll get the Desktop Stan!
(You need to unzip everything from the archive!)

My stan is able to run around on the desktop, wait and weave with his arms like in the game.



have fun ;-) and dont worry about my bad english^^

That looks really great! How did you make it?
And can you make one with Sam & Max as well?

I Made it with "Screen Babe" (no, it's NOT a porn )
http://www.casperlab.com/screenbabe/
i didnt buy it but i figured out how to legally circumvent the shareware limitation . (Thats why there is a starter exe)
If you download the program you can open the file Stan.BPF

Great! I'd like to see Sam & Max walking around on my desktop making it unsafe for me to use my computer

Stan walks around all over your desktop waving his arms all the time. You can either choose him to walk around on your wallpaper only, or you can make him walk on your screen even when you open a window.

i dont think so, because i exactly took the sprites from the game files extracted with a tool i cant remember anymore. i only changed the color about 3% higher because otherwise the black would have become transparent^^
remember that Monkey Island only had 256 Colors, so it may look a bit strange on a Windows desktop with 4294967296 colors (32bit)

here is a screenshot from my Monkey Island II Version in ScummVM

i think it is impossivle to see that the colors are changed a little bit

Awesome, I used to love these things when I was younger :P Like that sheep and stuff, you know the one I mean...

You should make more, I presume it won't be too hard if it's just copying and pasting sprites

Yes, eSheep was really funny
unfortunatelly it only was a 16bit program. sometimes there are Problems with XP^^
I'll make some more starting with Sam&Max. But it is not only spirte copying, because every animated part of each person has its own sprite. so for stan i had the body, the arms, the legs, the head and the mouth i all had to combine.

But it wasnt so hard, thats right

I remember that sheep from STRAY SHEEP on Fuji TV. Village Center Inc. used to make the screenmate, games, and screensavers with that sheep as well before they closed the company last year. I still have some books, videos, screensavers, and of course the screenmate.

I also used to make screen mates using Neko.

Looking forward to more characters, like Sam and Max and more. Maybe purple tentacle from DOTT?

When I postet this in this forum i didnt expect such a "big" interest! I only thought it would be nice if 1 or 2 people woulc download it and have some fun^^

At the moment I'm working with Max from Sam&Max. I just extracted all "normal" sprites and put together the movement.

If the interest keeps at this level I think i'll make some more. DOTT was an exellent game as well, i would like to make a screenmate about this^^

I'm definitely looking forward to Sam & Max. I think Purple Tentacle would also be fun hopping around your screen.

I don't know anymore, because i took the screenshot from a virtual PC (windows isn't activated on this at all)
I Think it's an installer to an older Version of screenbabe. I used this Program to create and script the Desktop Stan

Hey Ralf, are you still working on Sam & Max? I think it would be fun to see it getting finished.

have to admit that i havent a lot of time at the moment and the progress is quite slow. but I'm still working on it. its much harder than Stan because stan only had ONE room and only a few animations. Sam has a lot of sprites spread to all rooms of the game.
I have a lot of dublicates and still didnt find some sprites i wanted to use^^

You should make one of Hoagie. That would be "aewsome!"

Hoagie is my favorite Character.
