Hi everyone!

My Macbook Pro hard drive crashed and I was about a third into year two. I lost everything and I'm trying to get back to that point. I copy and pasted one of the saves from http://www.grimfandango.net/?page=saves but when I put it in the Residual save folder, the game won't open it. I've tried loading from Residual and from within the game itself.

What am I doing wrong!

Thanks!

P.S. This is my first post and I'm a huge Grim Fandango (and LucasArts in general) fan! Been a fan of Grim since I was about 8 years old. Got my jewel case version from a new website called Amazon. Haven't played the game in years (due to it not working on modern machines), so it's been SUPER exciting playing though it again! Buying a PS4 mainly for that remake!

Anyway, that's my intro. :D

ResidualVM cannot load saves from the original game.
You could enable debug mode to jump to spot close to where you were originally, though.

Instructions can be found at http://wiki.residualvm.org/index.php/Grim_Fandango_Debug_Mode

Where is that configuration file?

It should be located at ~/Library/Preferences/ResidualVM Preferences , you can open it with any text editor.

ResidualVM Preferences is not under /Library/Preferences

The Library directory in your home, not /Library in the system.

Yeah, I'm not looking in /System/Library

I'm looking in Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences and it's not there.

That is what I meant by "the system /Library".
There is a Library folder in your user's home directory as well, which is where the ResidualVM configuration file should be.

Searching for "osx library folder" brings up a couple of results that look like they should work. http://www.macworld.com/article/2057221 ... ricks.html is one.

Alternatively, you can just navigate to it using the terminal.
Start Terminal.app, and type the following:
Code:
open Library

it should bring up a Finder window to the Library in your home directory.
You can navigate to Preferences from there.

For future reference: CMD-SHIFT-G in Finder opens a dialogue that allows you to enter a specific path, put ~/Library in there and you'll get the relevant folder.
