Alright, so the game wouldn't install from the disc on my computer, so I just tried the above method and I now have a "Grim Fandango" folder with all the files. The patch wouldn't install either, so I just had a friend send me the files they got from the patch on their computer and put it in the "Grim Fandango" folder. Would this cause a problem? (Geez I probably sound really dumb...but then again me and technology don't really get along well >_<)
Alright, so then I had a full directory, right? The color was alright, and obviously my computer came with DirectX. So now the game runs from my hard drive. But it crashes every five minutes and junk...would this be because of how I obtained the patch files? Should I try the other launcher? Should I try adding the "good_times" thing? I don't know what to do at this point, I'm probably missing something basic.
