    The 60-minute Walkthrough for Monkey Island 2, by Headrock
    		Written for the CRIMINALLY INSANE.
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    *************************************************************************
    BIG BIG BIG NOTE: If you're playing the game for the first time, please
    copy this file to a diskette or a CD-rom, put it in a safe place, and
    forget about it. It takes all the fun out of this INCREDIBLE game. If
    you're Really Really stuck, get another Walkthrough. This walkthrough's
    purpose is to solve most of the puzzles before they're even encountered,
    so the whole cause-effect of the storyline is completely lost, and the
    enjoyment of this hilarious, whacky adventure is shot to hell.
    
    On a more personal note: If you can't finish this game on your own,
    you're a moron.
    *************************************************************************
    
    Anyone who's played Monkey Island 2 knows that it is one of the best and
    most interesting quests ever to come out of Lucasarts Studios. While the
    "Lite" version is quite easy, the regular game is difficult but much much
    more interesting. In any case, the myriad of locations available for travel
    (between Islands and across them), especially the fact that you are free
    to move ANYWHERE during chapter 2, makes the game a bit long to finish even
    for those who've already done it before. Yours truly, however, has an
    acute disorder, and remembers the entire game from start to end. Amazingly,
    I discovered one day that I know the fastest, easiest way to finish the
    game without having to "go back and finish something" before it's absolutely
    neccesary. This makes the game go much, MUCH faster. No more wandering 
    around, all confused about where you should go next, or what you forgot to
    do - This walkthrough does EVERYTHING in a neat, orderly fashion.
    
    This Walkthrough, like other walkthroughs of the "60-minute" style, is
    not only a complete and percise, but is also organized in a manner which
    minimizes travel between locations. It is based on the order in which things
    can and can't be done, and on the proximity of puzzless that become 
    available for solving simultaneously. The Walkthrough is useful even if you
    don't plan to finish it THAT quickly. In fact, the only way to actually finish 
    the game in under 60 minutes, all dialogue and skippable cutscenes must be 
    skipped, by pressing ESCAPE or clicking both mouse keys simultaneously 
    (to end a cutscene), or by repeatedly pressing the "." key (to skip text 
    lines one by one, during dialogues where a Left+Right-click doesn't work).
    
    Like watching a TV show without voice or subtitles. Don't even ask why I do it.
    Cause I don't know.
    
    NOTE: to make your life easier and your gameplay even quicker, I warmly 
    recommend memorizing the entire game. That's basically what I did, except I 
    didn't TRY to memorize it, it's just how my brain normally works. Play it
    about 20 times or so, and you'll understand.
    You could, however, copy down the order of locations you must visit - this 
    makes it much easier to remember the order of actions too: If you're at a 
    certain location, you can easily figure out (If you've already played the 
    game), what can and can't yet be done at that specific point in the game.
    
    
    P.P.S: Your Truly holds the record at 55:35, measured from the very first 
    click (difficulty selection menu) to the last click in the game (dialogue 
    with parents at the Big Whoop Carnival). And I bet I can go faster.
