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.
