VGA Floppy vs. VGA CD
Trivia #0

There is a surprising amount of differences between the floppy and CD version. Notice how Smirk’s cigar doesn’t emit smoke, for example. There are also brightness differences, which experts have described as: MI1 doesn’t have dynamic lighting but it does change the brightness of sprites on a per scene basis to suit the scene. The CD edition of course missed this, in a long line of re-release fuck ups.

Perhaps the oddest difference: After rebounding from the rubber trees on Monkey Island, Guybrush says Rubber tree. in the floppy edition. In the CD-ROM version: Rubber tree! Visual proof here.
