What does not

The 'Start.exe' launcher doesn't work.  Run the game using 'sntrm.exe', which is located in the game's directory.

You will get a warning dialog if you try to run the game with your Wine Windows Version set to something NT-based (e.g. Windows XP), but you can simply dismiss it and play the game anyway, without any further problems.  Setting your Windows Version in winecfg to Windows 98 or similar will prevent the warning dialog from appearing.

You may experience minor problems if you play the game with the RatPoison window manager.  See my additional comments for more information.

I didn't experience any of the other issues mentioned in other Sanitarium test data.


What was not tested

Beyond Chapter 3 of the game.

Additional Comments

Sanitarium has issues with the RatPoison window manager when the game is running in fullscreen and RatPoison has padding turned on. During the game, the area of the screen that overlaps RatPoison's padding can have graphical glitches, and cannot be interacted with using the mouse. To fix this, turn off RatPoison's padding before running the game. I use the following shell script to automatically disable RatPoison's padding, run the game, then re-enable it afterwards. It also kills and restarts Trayer, the tray application which sits in my RatPoison's padded space - if you use a similar application, substitute it's name, or simply remove those lines. ##### snip ##### #!/bin/bash killall trayer ratpoison -c "set padding 0 0 0 0" ratpoison -c "only" cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/ wine sntrm.exe ratpoison -c "set padding 0 0 0 26" trayer & ##### snip #####
