- Unlocking the learning pack with a key
What does not
- You must make some tweaks to use the Direct X renderer (so use OpenGL)
- The game turns your sound volume to zero, if you don't apply the registry tweak.
What was not tested
- Installer version of the game (I used the stand-alone)
Works flawlessly with the OpenGL renderer.

First make sure you have Timidity installed on your computer. It's a native application that plays the midi output from the game. On Ubuntu and other Debian based systems you can install Timidity by running the following command:
sudo apt-get install timidity
Start the game and choose TiMidity port 1 to be the output device.
Synthesia tries to fix a bug in windows sound systems by decreasing the master sound volume when closing the game. On Wine Synthesia will turn the sound volume to 0%. This feature can be disabled by making the following registry change to the settings of the game:
"Disable Auto Volume"="1"
The game comes with two renderers: the OpenGL one and the Direct X one. Both are working perfectly under wine, but Direct X needs some tweaking.
If you want to use the OpenGL renderer add the following registry entries:
If you want to use the Direct X you must first install the Direct X to your Wine installation. I don't tell here how to do it, because the OpenGL way is so much easier.
