What works

Installation, game, 1.01 patch, everything! I can play as if I were on Windows... tough, when I recently upgraded to 0.9.52 version, the game ran awefully, so I had to come back to 0.9.51...

What does not

Game crashes from time to time.

Another thing I had to do to make this game run is to set the ''simulated desktop'' to 800x600 resolution and to run the game there. Any other resolution would make the background smaller than it should be making it impossible to play


What was not tested

Playing scene cuts in the special mode the game has

HowTo / Notes

See also Grim Fandango Launcher utility.
updating to 1.01

Note that the version 1.01 patch, Gfupd101.exe, must be run in the following way:

$ wine start /unix Gfupd101.exe

This is due to the patches reliance on windows explorer adding double quotes when passing command line string in ARGV. Wine's start.exe implements this quirk with the /unix switch.
