What works

Everything except that listed in the "What does not work" section.

What does not

Sound effects during the game are sometimes a little slow and distorted.

The problem is solved by turning on Driver Emulation in Wine's audio settings; strangely after I turned it off again, the sound didn't go back to being distorted, but this introduces another problem; the sound lags noticeably. It's not a major problem, but it is a little annoying, I'd recommend turning the Sound Effects volume down to 0 in the game's options menu. I would expect that the music lags also, but it's not as easy to tell, as the music is not driven by game events.

Workarounds

What was not tested

I don't own a full copy of the game so I was unable to submit my score online, I did however watch a replay downloaded from the internet by the client, so I know it can connect to the server.

Additional Comments

My original music problem was my own mistake. I had the tetris website open while I did the test, and didn't realise the music playing in the background was from there not the game! Although in fairness it's the same music. Oh well, there's one less problem.
