    Re: HOWTO: Get Grim Fandango Working with Wine

    I tryed installing grim fandango on my samsung nc10 running ubuntu 9.10

    I configured everything like the guide says, but after the installation process, after copied every file from cd1-cd2 into the hard drive in order to run without cd.... how can I play?

    I launched Grim Fandango from the menu games, and shows up a window called "Default - Wine desktop", where it is the Grim Fandango Launcher inside

    If I click on Play Fullscreen, nothing appens, the same if I click on Play windowed

    how can I start the game?

    PS I haven's installed the patch, it is something I have to do?

    Yes, you have to install the patch (as I noted in the original post ), you can do that from the Grim Fandango launcher.

    Re: HOWTO: Get Grim Fandango Working with Wine

    Last time I played one of my LucasArts games it worked perfectly well with scummvm.

    Has that been removed from the repos?

    Nothing

    still doesn't work

    I also reinstalled everything from the beginning, but still when I click on the Play Fullscreen button, after a while it shows a popup with "no disk is inserted"

    Is that anyone which has installed properly grim fandango on an nc10?

    Just tried it again and for some reason it didn't work at all.

    I'm sure I used scummvm to play it last time

    Re: HOWTO: Get Grim Fandango Working with Wine

    I got it installed, then patched and copied the required files to play from the HD using the Grim Launcher 1.5 utility.

    I'm having some odd graphical glitches if I try to run in fullscreen mode, hoping somebody can help. In fullscreen mode, the intro, menu and cutscenes all display beautifully. However, when it switches to gameplay the background images are all inverted... it looks like Manny is walking on the ceiling. Controls all work, and sound is fine. The other interactive characters are the same way as Manny - they display properly but their background is upside down.

    If I hit F1 to bring up the ingame menu the menu overlay is upright and works normally (but in the game Manny is upside down while the background scene is upright - the opposite of while playing - weird).

    I attached a couple of screenshots.

    In windowed mode the game runs normally but the window is quite small no matter what size I set the emulated desktop as so I am hoping to get fullscreen working.

    Running 9.10 with wine version 1.1.33 using an Intel 845GM mobile chipset (laptop)

    Edit: I tried to play again on a desktop machine running an nvidia card, no problems. So I'm thinking it is a problem with the intel drivers. Any thoughts ?

    Step 5: Setting It Up As a Menu Item

    Download this icon to the .grimfandango directory.

    Now, type in terminal:

    (if you are using Kubuntu, replace gedit with kwrite, if you are using Xubuntu replace it with mousepad)

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/bin/grimfandango
    Now, copy paste this into the file (make sure to replace: <yourusername> with your username)

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    cd /home/<yourusername>/.grimfandango/
    wine Grim\ Launcher.exe
    Save and close.
    Now, type in terminal:

    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/grimfandango
    Now, type this in your terminal:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/grimfandango.desktop
    And copy & paste this into the newly opened file (Again: make sure to replace: <yourusername> with your username):

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Name=Grim Fandango
    Comment=Classic adventure game
    Exec=grimfandango
    Icon=/home/<yourusername>/.grimfandango/15895.jpg
    Terminal=false
    X-MultipleArgs=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;Game;Adventure;
    Save and close.
    You should now be able to find "Grim Fandango" in your games menu.

    Great tutorial easy to follow even for me but this file is deleted is there a way to reupload it ????

    Re: HOWTO: Get Grim Fandango Working with Wine

    Its only 6 months later.

    It doesnt matter what the .jpg picture is of. I just googled Grim Fandango and saved an icon sized picture to my .grimfandango file and renamed it 15895.jpg


    One problem Im getting is once I shut down my computer I lose GF in my Games. Not a problem because I dont have much on here ( I dont like clutter)so its easy to find. Also I suspect its just resized for by the program but I just have a small window even when opening it with Full Screen.

    Also when I use the F1 my save screens are inverted and backwards. Not a problem..just annoying.

    On a side note...I cant imagine how I solved this more then 10 years ago without the internet walkthroughs/

    Install the patch

    For me letting the Launcher install the patch did not work (Ubuntu 11.10, Wine 1.2.3). It downloaded just fine but when the patch process should have been started it gave an error ("Unhandled page fault on read access").

    This command, I got from WineHQ did work however:
    Code:
    cd ~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Programme/LucasArts/Grim
    wine start /unix gfupd101.exe
    Have fun.
