Difficulty selection
Hello there,

I have a problem with this game. There is no difficulty selection like in the old game. I didn’t mind it in my first playthrough because somehow the game started me out with hard difficulty.
However, when I started playing a second time for the audio commentary, I was playing in easy mode all of a sudden. What’s wrong here? Am I missing something obvious?

Kind regards,

I don't know what you mean. I don't remember a Hard or Easy mode...

In the old Monkey Island 2 there is a difficulty selection screen at the start before Elaine finds you hanging. If you selected hard difficulty, there would be more puzzles throughout the game. Example: When you collect ingredients for Largo's voodoo doll, in easy mode you get his skin flakes from his head by simply collecting his toupée.
With hard difficulty though, you have to convince Mad Marty to give you Largo's dirty laundry (which is quite hilarious).

As long as I'm stuck in easy mode, I'm deprived of gameplay such as this.

You can only play in Hard mode. For some reason they decided to remove the easier version in the Special Edition.

Sorry, I mixed this one up. In easy mode, you'd get a clean white shirt instead of having to do the Mad Marty puzzle. The toupée is in both versions.

So yes, you're all right. There is only hard difficulty in the Special Edition. Thank you.
