Demos

Where can I find the latest demo of GF?

I found a Base Version and a full version on Gamespot. The base version was release a day after the Full. So I'd asume the Base version is better?

you can also find the winxp patch there, but I'm not sure you need it for the demo as well.

I just tried the demo. It didnt work very well. There was no sound and little tiny grey horzontal lines all over the screen? I guess it was still playable but....

The demo was released before the game itself, so a fair bit of it is nowhere near as polished as it is in the final game. It's also generally accepted to be less stable and compatible than the final game.

The final game can work totally fine for almost everybody, so the problems you're experiencing are most likely down to the older demo code.

Good point...just make sure you don't have Windows 64bit and you should be fine with the full game...
