Can Grim Fandango be played on the PC parts of the twenty-first century with no complications?

Examples of PC parts of the twenty-first century:
Intel Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz w/ 800Mhz Front Side
Bus and HT Technology
128MB ATI Radeon 9800 Pro/XT
Athlon 64 FX processor
4x CD/DVD Burner (DVD+RW/+R Drive) or
48x CD Burner/DVD Combo Drive

?

Try it and see. :p

At the very least, the processor speed could cause problems in year three; specifically, with the conveyor belt. Another potential difficulty is the operating system, which you didn't mention. Older games can sometimes be cranky with Win2k and WinXP.

I have no problem on my 1,7GHZ and WinXP. Just install the patch, and I don't think you'll get problems. :rolleyes:

You'll have trouble before year three. Year 2. The forklift.
Just install the patch. :)

And in year three, when you get to the factory island, flip the switch next to the conveyor belt first thing and then stay away from it until the plot itself brings you back.
