Monkey Island 1 + 2 (US versions) - question

Noticed there are a couple of auctions for MI1 and MI2 selling what are proported to be the U.S. versions of the games.


Are there any differences at all between the US and UK versions aside from the more effiminate looking floppies?

Not as far as i know... but i do remember trying to run a few US games years ago on my old UK Amstrad Pentium 75 system and they refused to run because i was using Windows 95 set for the UK with a UK keyboard. I remember one of the games being Cyberia and it came up with a message saying something like "only for use in North America" or something along those lines.

Not sure if any of this applies to the amiga? An A1200 has NTSC support wherever you are in the world, I think it is the same with an A600 too but i am not sure with an A500?

MI1:

I am not sure, but the box seems to be different to the one on hol. If you look at the bottom of the box on ebay and the one on HOL, you will notice the lucas arts logo is in a different place and that there is no U.S Gold logo anywhere on the box. The Amiga sticker at the front is different too.

MI2:

The same as what I said before, lucas arts logo is in different place, no U.S Gold logo and the Amiga sticker is different too.

I doubt the actual game/code/version is any different to other releases.
