A Nice Guide to Getting the Game Working in XP/Vista/Windows 7 (in French)

So after a wave of nostalgia to play Grim Fandango again, I was dismayed to discover that unfortunately GF does not like Vista. After trawling the net to first solve how to install it, then get it to launch, then stop the sound mucking up, I came across this PDF which is a pretty comprehensive guide on how to deal with the numerous problems which come with running GF on an operating system more modern then Win 98. Its all in French, but hopefully some of you guys will find it useful to get your game up and running.

Check it out here: http://grim-fandango.servhome.org/do...techniques.pdf

Google translate works fine The document does not provide any new information not already present on these forums and even links to the patch I made, lol. But it is a nice troubleshooting document none the less. I was a little disappointed that the solution for gfx problems was 'disable 3d acceleration', but oh well, what can you expect
