Here is a collection of other Grim Fandango related stuff which you might find intresting, but which didn't fit into any other categories.
Nick Donaldson kindly provided us with instructions on how to set up your Wiimtoe as a controller for Grim Fandango. You'll need a wiimote with a nunchuk, a computer
with built-in bluetooth or a compatible adapter, and the free open source GlovePie program. The joystick can be used to move round, and several buttons have been mapped to actions and menu access. To set this up for yourself, follow these steps:
Sync the wiimote to the computer
Open GlovePie, and choose File->Open to open the GrimFandango.PIE script
Click "Run". If the wiimote is synced properly, you will see a number in the little
window next to "Run" which changes depending on how fast the wiimote is being moved
Open Grim Fandango and MAKE SURE "Joystick/Gamepad" is DISABLED in the options, or
Manny will never stop moving forward!
Kick back and enjoy being free from the keyboard and mouse!
Ashes to ashes
I called my cat "Boney."
'Til she said it wouldn't do.
I said, "Why?"
She said, "Sister,
'Cuz that's what I'VE been calling YOU!"
With bony hands I hold my partner
On soulless feet we cross the floor
The music stops as if to answer
An empty knocking at the door
It seems his skin was sweet as mango
When last I held him to my breast
But now we dance this grim fandango
And will four years before we rest
Wind pierces my hull
An iceberg, a needle.
Sweet whispered nothings
This deathbed harbor.
By love's rusty anchor,
