2. General hints and tips
Our hero Guybrush Threepwood (mighty pirate) has arrived on Scabb Island in search of the lost treasure of ...BIG WHOOP. Hijinks ensue.
If you've ever played an adventure game before you're probably familiar with the general concept already. Use to move Guybrush around and to move the cursor. While holding the cursor over an object, press to bring up the actions Guybrush can do with that object. For example, selecting a sign will give Guybrush the option to read the sign or to pick it up. Press to bring up Guybrush's inventory. Sometimes you'll have to use an item from your inventory with an item in the world - or with another item in your inventory - to progress through the game.
When in doubt: talk to everyone, try to pick up/use everything, and try using everything in your inventory with everything else. You cannot get into no-win situations, so you'll always be able to complete your objective. This walkthough can get you through the game step-by-step, but you'll lose out on much of the fun if you completely rely on it. When going for the Speed Demon achievement, skip all cutscenes by pressing , and skip dialogue with . The final page of this walkthrough has some extra tips for the speed run.
Don't use the hint or object highlighting systems or you can miss up to three achievements. These are activated with the and buttons respectively, so keep away from them. While you can use object highlighting up to five times without costing yourself an achievement, even a single use of the hint feature will cause you to lose out on a missable achievement. Loading a previous save can help save you from a slip-up, but to make it easier on yourself just avoid and entirely.
In in order to make this walk through a little more readable, all relevant characters and locations will be in bold and items will be in italics. And in Part II when you need to sail between three different islands I'll underline the one you need to go to next. Without further ado, let's set sail!
