  • Game must be run via grimfandgo.exe rather than Grim.exe in order to bypass a DirectX version check - Point2Play users will need to manually create an icon pointing to grimfandgo.exe, as the one made by the installer runs Grim.exe.
  • Crashes in certain locations


  • There is a ScummVM Subproject named Residual which is designed to run Grim Fandango.

  • For more fluent gameplay and less loading times:
Download a NO-CD patch, obtainable at megagames/gamecopyworld
Make a backup of the original EXE in case things go wrong. Then in each CD go to
the grimdata directory and copy for Year [X]:

The NO-CD patch can be left out but then you'll have to have one of the CD's in your
drive for the startup check. But the loading times will have decreased anyway.


Something's rotten in the Land of Dead and you're being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there's trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.


Made an icon for Grim Fandango because I thought the orginal kinda sucked. Right click and save. Suitable for all icon sizes (even 128px).
