Oh well. Had to give up on Dreamfall too. In fact it corrupted this Pc and the previous one! Had to restore to a previous point in order to get it working....the pitfalls of being an old addict!

I've purchased Windows 8 recently but reading all your posts on it, it looks like I have my work cut out for me. Thanks for all the info. I'm sure I'll be back.

Midge, if you have any questions or need any help at all, please PM me! I can do Windows 8.1 in my sleep!

Has anyone found a way to make Pandora's Box work with 8.1? I just keep getting a message "not compatible, etc.".

Hi, Bristol... sorry I have responded, but I've been out of town for 5 days. Just got off the road and have to run in town to a meeting. I'll try to get back to you tomorrow! I don't have this game and don't know anything about it, but I'll see what I can find out.

Drac, will Grim Fandango work on Windows 7? I don't have 8 and I didn't see it in the Win 7 list.

It is in the Windows 7 and Games thread with a link to the installer. Check down in the "G's." It works great!

I've read that ResidualVM. has at long last made it possible to play Grim Fandango on modern machines if you're lucky enough to have a copy.
You still need the original patch from LucasArts which is availble on the ResidualVM download page.

I'll have to check it out... thanks, Gil. The game is working great on both my Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 machines using the installers though.

Mine works fine on my Win 7, too, but I thought I'd mention it. wink

I've checked out your link and am going to try it on both my drives... always good to have more than one solution for a great game!

I tried the Grim Fandango installer and tried to play the game. It says it won't run without the registry keys. Am I supposed to install from my CD also?
It also says PKZIP can't remove temp files.

Melia, I noticed the link in the Windows 7 and Games thread has changed the target to the Grim Launcher, not the Grim Setup. Use the links in the Windows 8 and Games thread - you'll need to download both files... the setup file to install the game and the Launcher to play the game. I'll need to have Jenny or MaG change the Windows 7 and Games link to say it is for the Launcher and add a link to the Grim Setup.

You will need to have your Grim CD in the drive and then run the Setup file.

OK I changed the links in the Windows 7 thread to match the ones in the Windows 8 thread. Do you want the description changed as well?
