Grim Fandango Works with Vista
Posted by James on Tuesday 20th February 2007 @ 3:14 AM - Comments: 51

UPDATE - January 2008 - Well, this news item seems to have become the section of the visited by people triyng to get Grim Fandango on Vista, so all known information is listed below:

If you can't install the game, download the improved installer created by bgbennyboy which should work with all versions of Windows, including Vista and 64 bit versions.

If you can't run the game try using the improved launcher (also created by bgbennyboy) which should work with all versions of Windows.

Member GFFFE informed us that Grim Fandango does indeed run on Vista as long as you carry out the following steps

1) Install the patch
2) Run the game as administrator
3) Set the compatability mode to "Windows 98, Me"

If you also have Vista with Grim Fandango installed let us know how it goes for you.

New Fan Music
Posted by James on Wednesday 14th February 2007 @ 6:34 AM - Comments: 2

For the first time since the site's launch we have some new fan music. This piece by avedeus is a remake of Chepito's "Let It Shine" - make sure you have a listen. Perhaps this will encourage others to start producing Grim Fandango fan music... who knows?

We also now have our own Grim Fandango walkthrough added to the hints section written by Iron Kat. If you haven't completed the game yet remember to only use it when you really must. Those of us who didn't have learned from our mistakes :~.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Chinese Translation Released
Posted by James on Sunday 24th December 2006 @ 3:52 PM - Comments: 8

Despite the fact that Grim Fandango has been officially translated into quite a few languages, there are still many languages which it hasn't been translated into. One of these languages is Chinese.

After over a year's work, the Chinese fan-translated version of Grim Fandango, created by Bro.Ichi and Pscj was completed in late 2006. More information about the patch can be found on our languages page and the patch can be downloaded from our downloads page and installed in a matter of minutes.

It isn't an easy job translating the game - every line of dialogue has to be translated by hand (a computerised translation would lose a lot of the meaning in the dialogue), so make sure you take a look.

The Department of Death team would also like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

As can be seen from this press release, the Video Games Live show will be returning to the Hollywood Bowl on September 21st featuring something I'm sure all Grim Fandango fans will appreciate

New segments include a live performance of excerpts from the new HaloŽ 3 score as released this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and the world premiere of Civilization IV, plus a rare special acoustic performance by the original Lucas Arts composers performing Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and more.
