Gear Up - Grim Fandango System RequirementsGrim Fandango's system requirements are pretty light, since the game is now six years old. As long as you're not still living in the computing equivalent of the stone age, you should have no problems whatsoever with the minimim specifications.
Windows 95/98 compatability. XP should be fine.
Pentium 133 or above. Do they still even sell these?
2mb PCI card. To enjoy the benefits of hardware acceleration, you'll want a 4mb PCI / AGP card.
16mb required as an absolute minimum, 32mb for optimum performance.
As with most games, DirectX is required. Grim Fandango comes bundled with version 7, but you'll probably want the latest version from Microsoft's page.
As you can see, Grim Fandango has incredibly low requirements and should run on the comparatively light-speed computers of today. In fact, this actually works against Grim Fandango and sometimes causes the game to run too quickly. To resolve this, simply download the patch.
