Question: is 320x200 resolution supported?
Date of the Tentacle
A downloadable game for Windows
"The interface and gameplay feel great. Well done."
"Loved it. That was hilarious! That ending..."
"Fun! Was so happy to return to the mansion ..."
"I thought it was really good and funny!"
Green Tentacle moved out, because the Mansion is full of Maniacs. But he feels alone now. Help Bernard build a tentacle-girl for him ...
Download, install and enjoy. :)

Unfortunately not in this version. I can have a look if I could compile a version that doesn't render the windowed mode in 640*400.
Thanks for your reply. In short: my setup is a pc with an analog ati card connected to a crt tv 15khz with a vga scart rgb cable. Using win7 and calamity crtemudriver that let me to use lowres. I tried to launch the game and I noticed it uses the desktop resolution (640x480 interlaced that is the max res a 15khz can support and is not good for playing). Which is the minimum resolution that the game support?
Would be great to play it in 320x200 pure old school resolution with no filters, no scaling :)
Update: if I set desktop resolution to 320x200 then game runs perfectly at 320x200 progressive fullscreen. I made a comparison with maniac mansion mania episodes (at 320x200 original resolution) and sprites sizes are the same. Only downside is the cursor size that is huge. Classic cursor is almost unusable because is really huge. System cursor is bit better. Is there a way to define cursor size? Thanks again for your time
Is there a walkthrough available somewhere?
I've got 19 items in my inventory but can't find a cleaner or a way to open the door downstairs.
Have a look at the books in the living room to get somethng that can work like a cleaner.
If you mean the door on the left next to the stairs ... use a hook that you find somewhere to unlock it.
I hope it helps. For the first half there is a walkthrough on YouTube further down in the comments.
Part two is here:
I must admit I missed the hook but the book one is misleading.
Also, that playthrough is only like 1 step ahead of me. Your sister showing up should be flagged somehow, otherwise there's no reason to go in that room...
I found a walkthrough via Gamejolt though. Thanks.
Is there still any chance for a German translation and a re-release as a Maniac Mansion Mania episode? We of the MMM-community would be very happy to see this great game as part of our series.
As a massive fan of the original game, this really brought back some nostalgia, started a playthrough of this :)
