    guy’s, is there anyway to run Grim Fandango?
    from what I understand ResidualVM is needed I think?!

    thank for your time

    I have managed to compile ResidualVM from source and get Grim Fandango running in X. I have a Pi B model overclocked at turbo and it’s too slow to be playable. I’d appreciate it if somebody could test it on a RPi 2. It would give me a reason to get one myself.

    The instructions to build from source are at the link below.

    Building ResidualVM

    You can get game data at the links below.

    Demo version of Grim Fandango

    Patch to be copied to grimdemo folder

    You can launch ResidualVM with the command in a terminal session in X.

    The UI is similar to ScummVM so select Add Game… and browse to and select the grimdemo folder. Select Start to launch the game.

    I’d be interested to hear how it runs on the Pi 2. Also, if anybody can get it to run from the console, that would be great as we can integrate it into Retropie. When I tried to launch residualVM from the console I get an OpenGL not available error.
