Can someone put up an info box on this arcticle?
Does anybody know what is in that cave under the mountain in LEGO Island 1? I got this game when I was 5 years old,, and this consumes me. 220.127.116.11 23:11, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
Captain Click (listed as Pirate Skeleton in the credits) is in the door in that cave. Unfortunately, you can't open that door. Even if you use the "Walk Through Walls" button (Keypad Plus or Keypad Minus), there's nothing behind it but just sky.
The two times I lost the Chase The Brickster mission many years ago, my game didn't reset. I even saw my score cube right after the mission both times. How is this? Also, is there a reward for winning the Brickster other than that ending movie?
The game is designed for kids and I don't think deleting all their hard earned proggress after losing the brickster chase would have gone over too well. Also there is no reward for beating the game other than the end movie. --Jukilum 02:16, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
Lego Island Manual
Could shots of this game's manual be found anywhere on the internet?
I remember this manual. It was a comic book where some kid got sucked into the game as Pepper and it was basically a nice big promotional leaflet with not much instruction for the actual game. Unfortunately I don't know where my copy of the manual is and am without a scanner, so I'll just reiterate what the guy above asked. Thanks.
I've found pictures of it! They can be found at the website of one of the "Co-Creators" of the game, Wes Jenkins. The website is at Wesdotcom.com EDIT: I just remembered, that site also has the script for it!

I have the game an might be able to find the instructions.
(Oh, and the save file ISN'T deleted if the Brickster wins)
Of course it isn't!!! You can actually let him out an unlimited amount of times!!!See Ya', tfullwood 15:39, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I have also noticed several differences between the cutscenes and the real-time rendering. These include more plants and rocks, Mama's piano missing, racetrack not going inside tunnel, more detail on road textures, and a lot more.See Ya', tfullwood 15:46, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Does anyone know if this game is compatible with Windows XP or Vista? I'm curious about this...
I have a version of this game supposedly for XP, but I never tried installing it on the XP before. (It also works on my other computer)

It is, however when I run it the mouse does not work as well, and the 2D backgrounds usually flicker, making it very hard to play. I have a copy and I am willing to make this article a bit better.

I have discovered how to fix this problem. After installing the game, do not run it! Instead, go to the cofiguration program, then click the button labeled "advanced." A box will appear, showing Direct3D (if installed), RAMP, RBG, and on newer systems, MSX. Direct3D is selected. To fix the problem, select anything besides Direct3D. This has two unfortunate side effects: One, no texture filtering. Two, no actuall transparency, instead the solid-clear-solid-clear fake transparency technique.See Ya', tfullwood 12:45, 23 October 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tfullwood (talk • contribs)
Bank and Super Store missions
The Unproduced Sequel?
In the LEGO Island manual, it mentions that LEGO Island is in the Fanta-Sea. LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts acknologes this, even in a song. However, in the SCRIPT for the LEGO Island manual (found on Wes Jenkin's website, see below), there is a mention of (they skimmed over that part, and it wasn't in the final manual) including a contest, with prizes including a pre-order for BENEATH the Fanta-Sea. This is probably one of many unadded features I discovered (some mentioned in the game itself), and since mindscape doesn't seem to have done very much more for LEGO, and that the final sequel was released in 2001, it might of been officially canceled before the game was completed. However, according to Wes Jenkin's website, he made a pilot for a LEGO TV show for BBC that didn't go through. The segment posted on his website includes not only Captain Click, AND some of the models (sorry for the capitals, I just finished writing a patriotic-type speech on the King Kong visits Edo talk page) from the original game, but also the same animation style, namely the non-rubbery but the different parts stretching individually. This seems to imply that he had much more of LEGO Island planned before he got to the point he is now. (namely, working for himself and me probably being the only LEGO Island fan to voluntarily search for and find his site. Come to think of it, I'm probably the only LEGO Island fan who did historical research) For more on this subject, see below. See Ya', tfullwood 23:17, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Wes Jenkins, the Creator?
Although the first game credits him as co-creator, and although the second game gives him special thanks credit, AND the third game doesn't even credit him, (I don't think he was actually involved with that one) I believe that he was the 'Official' creator of LEGO Island. Supporting this claim, I have the fact that he was the only one of the co-creators to be involved in the second game (as far as I know), as well as: he was the only one interviewed, or even featured, and actually mentioned in an interview for the first game; he's apparently created the characters, he's the only one who really seems to have gone anywhere with it, and some other stuff. He also seems to have been involved in such projects as Mario is Missing, where he apparently did the graphics. I believe that someone here (not me, my E-Mail's not working) should conduct an E-Mail-based interview with him (although maybe me, I could get a new one, my account hasn't worked for almost a year) on LEGO Island to clear up many points about it, and maybe even so far as create a new page for him. The site (if you're interested in conducting the interview, or other research) is Wesdotcom.com. See Ya', tfullwood 23:17, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
LEGO Island 3?
This game does not work on my new PC flat screen LG computer even though it has the same equipment that is listed in the infobox. Can anyone be accurate about this. trainfan01 —Preceding undated comment added 00:47, 17 June 2010 (UTC).
LEGO Island Modding!!! (Bum-Bum-Buummm)
Thank you for the dramatic music, me (ha-ha): I believe that the LEGO Island animations are stored in the .si format, which was the old format for SOFTIMAGE|3D; if the SOFTIMAGE Mod Tool (free version of the current version of SOFTIMAGE) can open this format, I should be able to change animations. If someone could figure out the format of the "*.dta" files on the hard drive (which I beleive store which animations are where), then it would be possible to create NEW animations!
Of course, I could be wrong, but... in any case, this would allow one to actually MOD LEGO Island!

So who asked for the list of characters to be deleted, and who's going to bring it back or find a way to at least spread it through the three game articles? --Lair of Rockwhales (talk) 00:43, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
- I moved it to User:Lair of Rockwhales/List of Lego Island characters (page history) per your messages on my talk page. – Athaenara ✉ 05:06, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
