What works

Installing and running the of the game just right out of the box. 

What does not

1) Wine doesn't seem to translate the right alt-key exactly as windows does (I have read this related to other games). Therefore the standard-setting for tilt-right does not work. 

 2) Changing key settings in the game-options causes the game to hang in fullscreen mode. A lot of people seem to have solved the issue by running the game in windowed mode for changing the key settings (winecfg --> emulate virtual desktop).

3) However for me this did not work out: The game kept hanging in key-options. Therefore I did two little modifications in the wgame.conf file which can be found in the game directory. You'll need a Hex-Editor:

  • changed Offset 212 from 36 to CD (right flipper, from right control-key to cursor-right)
  • changed Offset 260 from B8 to CB (right tilt, from right alt-key to cursor-left).

With these two little modifications the games runs like a charm now.


What was not tested

Uninstalling the game.
