Additional Comments

Gnome Shell causes some minor kinks with games in fullscreen (top-bar sometimes showing on top of game) but that happens with a lot of games. In windowed mode, "Use reference rasterizer" must be used for the mouse to be in the right place in the window. Fullscreen works fine. The framerates are high, even when on Premium graphics mode, but is pretty unstable. Minor lag-spike are common in higher graphics settings, unlike when played on Windows. Asus G74Sx, Core i7, 12GB RAM, 3GB Geforce GTX 560m NVIDIA proprietary driver, version 295.49 The must be some underlying problem causing the framerate to be unstable, as my system plays this game smoothly on Windows, though I have yet to try any other games from Steam. The game is extremely playable (despite the framerate instability), and keeps in sync with the music without any issues. The framerate appears stable (or at least, always better than my refresh rate) when played in normal graphics mode.

HowTo / Notes

Workarounds
Workarounds


Corrupted Login

Some users will find junk or "invisible" when attempting to log into the game for online score sharing, achievements, etc.

For those capable of logging in to Audiosurf on another system, the details of this login are stored in the file

 ~\Steam\steamapps\common\audiosurf\engine\Support\SavedConstants.cgr

Simply make a copy of this file, and move it to the Steam folder you wish to use.

Not the best solution, but gets you logged in.

Questhelper Error

Use the Wine Configuration tool (winecfg or Application -> Wine -> Configure Wine). Use the button “Add application…” to add QuestViewer.exe to the list (NOT audiosurf.exe). QuestViewer.exe is locatied in the engine folder, by default this is ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/audiosurf/engine/QuestViewer.exe

Make sure the QuestViewer.exe entry is selected and open the Libraries tab. Enter usp10 in the “New override for library” field and click Add.  The file usp10.dll is also part of the "Microsoft Installer 2.0" package, which can be installed via winetricks.

Window Alignment Glitch

A common problem, where the mouse does not seem to click on the locations it indicates.

This issue in most cases does not exist in full-screen mode. To access this, go to the following file:

~/Steam/steamapps/common/audiosurf/config.ini

And change the line "runfullscreen: false" to "runfullscreen: true", or if there is no line of "runfullscreen", simply paste in "runfullscreen: true".

This will start the game automatically in full-screen mode.

It should be noted that validating the game files through the steam client will reset the config.ini file (it will show as a file corruption).

Mouse Leaves Window, Then Gets Stuck

"Allow DirectX apps to stop the mouse leaving their window" seems to be the cause of this issue.  Unchecking this and "Allow the window manager to control the windows" fixes this issue.  Both are found in the Wine configuration, under the "Graphics" tab.

Large Music Folders Cause Lockup

Some systems may seem to "lock up" while opening music folders.  It is not freezing, simply taking an exceedingly long time.  Once loaded, the music folder suffers no latency for the rest of that session - if you've sat through the opening once, you don't have to sit through it again until next time you play.

For some users, creating a symbolic link to your music folder of choice, and naming it "My Music", in the folder ~/.wine/drive_c/users/{Username}/ will cause the slowdown to diminish.
