Grim Fandango Remastered, where to find save files on Mac?

Lucky you, playing Grim Fandango remastered is a great experience. Unfortunately if you bought the game on GOG and you like to play both on your Mac as well as on your Windows computer, you will not be able to synchronize your save files in the cloud. The client Gog Galaxy isn’t able to do that… yet.

So if  you tried to find the solution online, well there are little information about it. Or should I say they are information about it, stating that you should be able to find the save files in this folder:

~/Library/
Application Support/
Doublefine/
GrimFandango/

Unfortunately if you try to look for it in the Mac Finder, you will probably not be able to find the « Doublefine » folder, no matter how hard internet users are telling you so.

Actually, the folder does exists, but for strange reason, Finder hide it, until you access it for the first time… That’s handy!

So the only way to access it, is to click the Go menu (in Finder),  then Go to folder. Then copy/paste the line above (~library etc.) and hit enter. This will bring you directly to the hidden folder.

The remaining step is to mail you or Dropbox youm both the registry.sav file and the savedata0000 folder.

Finally going back to your Windows computer, head straight  to:

C:\Users\
my-user-name\
AppData\
Roaming\
Doublefine\
GrimFandango

and paste the files and voila, you can now play on your Windows computer straight from where you stop on your Mac!

 

Try Wikiwand and never come back to Wikipedia again

Wikipedia is the most viewed website in the world (or at least it should be), but it isn’t a nice visual experience to have.

In order to change that, try the extension WikiWand for Chrome, it will make your eyes stop bleeding (specially with the black background).

  • You will finally have a left navigation to go through long article.
  • You can change the font to be something a bit more readable (a San Serif one).
  • You can switch to black background, which is so much more comfortable for my tired eyes.
  • Finally you can make paragraphs length as long as it should be on a screen: short!

On my way to Sri Lanka

I am back from holidays in Sri Lanka. I did not really know the country prior to deciding going there. It was kind of an in between to meet my girlfriend somewhere close to France & Singapore. Ok, it is indeed much closer from Singapore but still, there are not so many countries in which you can go Asia, during European summer time. Most of them are experiencing heavy rain and monsoon.

If you also try to go exactly in countries between France and Singapore, you will probably end-up somewhere around Kazakstan.  I am sure, this is a wonderful country to visit, but unfortunately it is hard to reach from both Paris and Singapore.

So we decided to go Sri Lanka, and well, that was a great choice. Probably the best 2 holiday weeks I got, ever. Not only the country is small enough to travel from west/east/south quite easily, but the variety of landscapes you can find is quite impressive. You can, altogether, enjoy sunny beaches, travel around archeological sites, spend some time in the mountains, and finally enjoy a day in the main city: Colombo.

Apple, non vraiment, tu arrêtes maintenant !

Passe encore de faire une montre à la rue, mais imposer l’installation de ton application Apple Watch et la rendre impossible à désinstaller… sérieusement… j’espère que ta montre terminera chez Noz ou Cash Converter.

Je ne te remercie pas!

Où trouver ses cadeaux de noël à Singapour

Si vous habitez, à Singapour et que vous rentrez en France pour les fêtes, il y a de grandes chances que vous recherchiez également des cadeaux de Noël pour la familles, les amis etc. Comme vous habitez Singapour, vous aimeriez bien ramener des cadeaux un peu typique singapouriens, sans pour autant tomber dans le cliché/classique.

Après, un bon pot de Kaya ça fait toujours l’affaire, notamment pour les gourmands.

J’ai eu l’occasion de chercher un peu des boutiques à bobos/hipster et ma foi, la ville du Lion est aussi chargée en la matière que le marais parisien.

Commençons par Chye Seng Seng Huat Hardware. Oui le non est tout a fait imprononçable mais l’avantage c’est que, d’une part vous aurez une boutique cripto/hipsto/bobo à l’étage, mais surtout au rez-de-chaussée il y a un super café terrasse qui vend des produits diablement bons. Du coup achat + chilling time je pense que c’est le top.

L’adresse est au 150A Tyrwhitt Road et ci-dessous le street view, sinon on se demande un peu où l’on arrive.
