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.
