Installation works fine. After installation, following the steps outlined in other versions lets you start up the program fine, as well:
- Install riched20.dll through some method (such as winetricks)
- Use a hex editor (such as KHexEdit) to change any instances of "richedit50" (case insensitive) to "richedit20".
- Install some form of Internet Explorer in Wine.
Creating a new project works, as does all the normal text editing. Compiling, running, and saving projects works. Exporting games for release also works.
The Skein, Index, and Transcript features all work as expected
The built-in documentation works but is very slow.
What does not
Loading saved projects does not work. If you attempt to load a saved project, the program will throw a fatal error dialog and close.
This can be partially worked around by starting a new project, opening the source text of the saved project in a text editor, and then pasting that text into Inform 7.
What was not tested
Nothing, to the best of my knowledge.
