Hey everyone,

I managed to install and run the German version of Grim Fandango on Windows 7 yesterday.
It started just fine, no issues with the sound or freezing whatsoever.

But.

The game and residualvm simply quit whenever I try:

- to use the hole puncher at Eva's desk
- to climb the rope to the roof in the back alley


This occurs every single time at exactly the same spots.
There appears a warning in the second window of residualvm in the instant before the game closes, but it's gone so fast that I cannot manage to take a proper screenshot.


I never thought it possible, but this is way more frustrating than not being able to play the game at all :-(


Anyone who knows what's up and how I can fix it?

The contents of the console window can be found in the residualvm.log. On my computer, that's in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\ResidualVM\Logs\residualvm.log.

(If you open in Notepad you may not see any linebreaks, so it would be better to use Wordpad or something.)

The kind of bugs and the fact that you're running the german version make it highly probable that you have corrupted game data. If you could run a nigthly build you could check whether the data is fine or not.

Pretty sure the data is not completely flawless.

There were some issues installing the game. I used the German tutorial by ShyGuy on youtube, and every single error that occured in his tutorial occured in my installation process as well. I even bought another German version via amazon, in case my own copy was somehow ruined.



Edit:
Right, it's running now. I went through the comments beneath ShyGuy's tutorial and there he advised someone to cut "data003.lab" out of the game folder until I reach year 2.

Now Manny managed to climb up unto the roof, I'll try Eva's hole puncher later.


Thanks for the other advice guys :)
