mystefying problems...

Hello all,

Before we begin, let me specify that, yes, I have installed the patch. Just so that everything's perfectly clear...

I hope I'm not duplicating a thread; I couldn't find anyone else with this problem but didn't look especially hard. Someone can throw the link at me if that's the case.

I started playing grim fandango fairly recently and quite liked it -- I had gotten to where Manny was whisked underground with Salvador Limones and Eva.

What happened at this point was that the game reacted as if I had my finger down on the 'enter' key and wouldn't let go. It sped through all of the dialogue, finally getting locked into an infinite loop with Eva, talking about her being "my boss's secretary's evil twin".

This hasn't stopped happening, and there's no way to exit the game without either rebooting or hitting crtl-alt-esc followed by everyone's favourite ctrl-alt-del. Whenever I enter the game it does the same thing, so if you hit F1 you'll be stuck in the 'keyboard help' page, well, forever.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this, or what I can do? I've installed the patch but it obviously doesn't address this problem.

Any help would be great -- I really want to get back to the game!

what system are you running? is it possible you're running a thats way to fast to run it? You might try downloading a program that will slow your cpu.
