Hi All!

Need help here:
~Does anyone have the complete list of easter eggs for Grim Fandango??? wink
Or, anyone interested in compiling a list of eggs on this thread? wave

It used to be online under the GF network but i guess it closed down... in fact, many of them (like Calavera's Last Dance) are gone. and so are the goodies.

Love this game to Death... laugh

Welcome to GameBoomers!

Hope you enjoy your stay with us.

I don't know of a complete compilation of EE for this game.

One that I found is the sighting of Max (Sam and Max fame) at the Tattoo parlor's poster.

I will transfer this thread to our Adventure Games Discussion. The vets there will know more. Just follow the link at top left of the frame.

I found this fan page for Grim Fandango that lists Easter Eggs. smile

Grim Fandango Eggs

Jen,

Traditionally Easter eggs are coded events in a game, DVD movie that have to be activated either by a code or action. Eg. Clicking on a particular place in a pyramid opens a hidden room with designer pics and such in Pandora Directive.

GK3 has a special eater egg icon in your action inventory that occurs after using a particular keyboard command.

Easter eggs may also be "inside jokes " that are visually in a game. Like images of Max from Sam & Max that exist in most Lucas Arts games.

Hey Thanks MaG!

Sorry got the wrong Discussion section! smile

That link is minimal. Maybe we should start compiling? laugh laugh laugh i'll forward it to a Grim Fandango fan site or an EasterEggs site and hopefully all GF fans can enjoy eternally.... laugh Don't let this great game just disappear into obscurity!!!

All these based on memories on THAT certain list thats now lost!: ~EASTER EGGS & TRIVIA list~
-------------------------------------------
1. Stand on the board above the kitty-litter (to retrieve the Can-Opener) and Press - P (for picking up) just off-centre.... Manny will laugh a sarcastic laugh at you.

2. Blue Casket Caf

Oooh I had forgotten about Manny's crooning to the moon - that is one of my favorites.

It seems to me there is one involved with the secretary at the DOD - but it escapes me. ARGHHH

OK now you have me all geared up for a GF replay.

Hey - thanks smile

And another.... taken from another thread of mine in another forum.... im serious about compiling the list! Heh heh wink

Rusty Anchor
by FritzKrapfel

"I can't recall all of them myself, but I do remember if you show Glottis the slip of paper in Rubacava that says "Rusty Anchor" before showing it to anyone else, he'll sing about a 2 minute song of the same name. There's also a good bit of unused dialogue between Manny and Domino from year three that you can access with a ripping utility for Lucasarts games, but I can't remember the name of it. Anyone out there know it?"

OK I am game for this. I restarted last night. Been scouring.

1. Every time Manny walks by the first stone emblem in the alley he'll say hello and such to the blue eye - though he hasn't been down below yet.

2. I remembered the thing with the secretary. Play with her stapler before you leave that floor (and before you need to) and you'll get a funny response.

3. Also I forgot about leaving Manny idle. If you don't move around after a time, he lights up and waits.

Starting a list.......

Laura

Ok -

1.After Glottis has burned rubber to the track, interact with the piano as Manny.

2. I also spent time in the big guys office at the cat track. Don't think it's necessary to advance the game at that point - but it is fun dialogue.

I have a problem. I remember well Manny crooning his poem to the moon, but this time around I can't get in the right spot. He'll look up as I strill down the dock from the captain, but he just says "I don't have the right equipment for that" Where exactly do I need to be standing?

Hmmm.... Make sure you do everything you ought to do 1st, then proceed onto the dock with Captain Velasco tinkering with his hobby ship, walk forwards to the far/deep end. Move Manny into a position when he faces up to the moon. Then, Hit - ENTER. A couple of times would encourage Manny.

1) After "Glottis burned rubber on the track"? Sorry, you need to remind me which scene is this.... Is this the part when Manny looks at the empty piano and sez sumthing about Glottis? wink

2) Sorry, but you got to remind me again which scene is this... BigGuy's Office?

I played this game a couple of years back on my PC. But that broke down. So i have to resort to using VPC on my Mac!

Lucky You Laura!!!! laugh

Big Guy meaning Max's office.

I should have said "to the track" after Manny shows Glottis the high roller card. You'll get the out take at any time while Glottis is at the track.

Ok. i just completed the game again!

Getting my whole list of Easter Eggs, trivia and such sorted out now..... Please let me know if anyone's interested over here....

Here's a couple of random ones off my head in the meantime.... wink

1. At Domino's Office, try accessing his screensaver password a couple of times.

2. Year4: Back at the dock: When Cpt. Velasco leaves, go EXAMINE(Press - "E") the moon again.

3. When Carla throws the metal-detector out of the window and leaves, read the note at the locker.

4. Year2: At the bridge linking to Maximino's joint(Move right of screen at Membrillo's morgue), walk pass the shelter till Manny notices the stature erected way above. EXAMINE it a couple of times.

***DOES anyone know what happens if you were to get all your lines correct at the open mic @Blue Casket(before impressing the table of beatniks)?***

Oh by the way, does anyone know how to rip all the music from the game to MP3s??? i remembered people posting that before.... the 2nd song at the end credits is simply lovely... smile

Heeeheeee.... yep i noticed that too... its virtually impossible(?) to please THAT table of beatniks before impressing them with the Sal connection.... i wonder what happens if we can get the lines correct AFTER and use them in sequence BEFORE? Would it illicit cheers instead of jeers??? wink

Laura, do you have the lines? i realised if we get 2 lines correct in sequence, the beatniks start their finger-snapping and the bongos come on to encourage...

Sorry I didn't write them down - but I think there are many combinations. I did it after Carla went through her poems and kind of used her stuff as a template. Anything dark, weird and beatniky I used and it worked.
