Hi-res Manny Teaser Video

Blacksad, the person who created the new hi-res model of Manny, has put together a nice little teaser featuring the new model (and a nice new pair of shoes for Manny :)

You can compare him with the old model, here:

Pretty sweet, I'm sure you'll agree!

Hi-res Manny is here!

Thanks to the work of somaen, cplhenshaw, BlackSad (for the new 3D model), and other members of the ResidualVM forums (including mogul!), we now have our first ever hi-res version of Manny!

Sadly he's still a little buggy, so this can only be considered an Alpha release, but you can at least play with him for yourself.

Known major issues are:
1. No facial animation.

As a say: There are plenty of bugs to iron out, but it's still fun to see what's possible thanks to ResidualVM!

To see hi-res Manny in Grim Fandango for yourself, simply drop the following file into your Grim Fandango folder (where your DATAxxx.LAB files live), and run ResidualVM!

None of your game files are affected by this!
