Additional Comments

Games are sometimes slower than on Windows. The worst framerate drop in a game run in Wine compared to Windows was about 15fps. Sometimes, games run from GM will not start, and GM will seem to hang. Just kill the game process [not Game Maker's], and try again. Also, I didn't install, I just dragged my GM5.0 folder out of my Windows partition. Didn't test DLLs or multiplayer, and note that they are supported in 5.0 unregistered.
