A patch for Grim Fandango was released shortly after the game's initial release, providing a remedy to a few problems which affect the game. It is highly recommended that you download and install the patch before playing the game, as it does the following:
- Solves a problem which can occur when copying the CD's .lab files across to the hard-drive.
- Prevents various lockups caused by certain events throughout the game.
- Slows down a certain puzzle during the game which goes too fast for completion on processors higher than 400mhz.
- Adds ability to display text during cutscenes.
