Hi,

first to say, the current release (I used a nighty build) is awesome, not much glitches, works like a charm.
Now I'm out in the forrest with that marrow-pump where I have to balance the machine.

I can take up the wheelbarrow, but I can't move it left or right, just forward and backward.

Am I doing something wrong?

Did experience someone the same problem?
Tnx und greets,
Michael

That's the way it is supposed to work, no bug.

p.s. next time, please, report any bug at https://github.com/residualvm/residualvm/issues

Found that out now, but I have another problem.

In Year 2, the forklift.

I read in a few walkthroughs, that the forklift-stop could fail in case you 're having a too fast computer. ResidualVM should have solved that, I think.

Now, I'm using the right slot (where the gatter is open) and I cna't hold the elevator.

Anyone knows if this is a bug or am I too slow?
I tried it for 20 times now, I can't get it to work.

I need the forklift to stop the elevator in the right moment. I'm positioned right before the right gap (there are 2 gaps, left and right), but when I put the forklift forward, nothing happens, I just arrive on the on the other floor.

Anyone have an idea?
Maybe this could be made easier through ResidualVM with some additional code. This is really a very annoying spot in the game. I completed it years ago with my original german copy, don't remember that part, but I finished the game, so it must be possible ;)

Thanks for any advice or help.
Did anyone complete Grim Fandango with the current daily builds and wit hthat forklift problem?

That's a bug in the game, which was solved with the patch released by Lucasarts. If you have a windows installation of grim simply install it and copy the files over to the residual grim directory. Otherwise you need to use patchex from the repo residual-tools.

Just for all others with the same problem:

It worked like a charm!

Compiled patchex, used it on the Gfupdate101.exe file and put the files into grimdata.

Now it works.

SOOO grateful. Thank you guys. :]
Hope to have helped other people, too, with this problem.

Maybe someone can change the topic from wheelbarrow to elevator problem or something which makes sense?

We have 2 topics in here , the wheelbarrow was pure stupidity of mine, but the other thing is a big problem.

Sorry for disturbing again.

I am in the 2nd year and nearly at the end of it.

I use the manipulator in Manny's bureau. The police guy loses when I push the magnet button when the light on the right table is on. He says "this is an outrage!" bla bla bla.

But he doesn't close my casino. Why?

Did I not complete something?

Sounds like a bug to me. Anyway, if you can help me, I will file this as a bug. :)

Thanks a lot,
Michael

How does one use Patchex to add the GF1.01 update? Thanks!

@ Pixmap

It may be a bug, yes. Look at https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ ... rting_Bugs for info on how to report it.

@ JohnnyWalker2001
See https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ ... ango_Patch

If you didn't get Terry the Sea Bee out of jail, get a union card, and make it so that Naranja doesn't show up to work, you can rig the game so that Police Chief Bogen loses but he won't close down the casino.

From what I remember of playing the game with the original interpreter, Bogen will return to the casino later so you can make him lose again. I haven't tried it in ResidualVM, though.

Usage: patchex PATCH_EXECUTABLE [LANGUAGE]

Extract update files of game update from PATCH_EXECUTABLE
-For GrimFandango (gfupd101.exe) you must specify a language,
-For Monkey Island (MonkeyUpdate[_LANG].exe) this parameter is ignored,
please select the update executable according to your version.
Available languages:
- English
- French
- German
- Italian
- Portuguese
- Spanish
Alternately original archive could be extracted as original.cab with CABINET keyword instead of language.

I finished Year 2 recently earlier this week.

If he said "this is an outrage" etc...then there is a possible chance that you haven't completed all the other tasks necessary before you can get him to close down the casino...because under normal circumstances, when you've done all the necessary tasks up to that point, pressing the magnet button when it gets to Bogens table should lead straight to a cut-scene where he shuts down the club.

As was mentioned by someone else...did you do all the tasks to free Terry from Jail (which gets the tools for Glottis)? Did you do all the tasks needed to get the Union card? Did you make sure to do all that tasks necessary to convince Velasco that Naranja won't show up?

If you're unsure what is needed, check out the Grim Fandango hints and answers at Universal Hint System.
