What works

The emulator runs. Games boot and are playable with sound and video. Input works normally. Saves load as well. Cheats also work just fine.

What does not

Requires a 64-bit dsound.dll to run (I got it from my Windows 8.1 partition). Does not exit properly—needs to be killed through System Monitor. Switching away from the emulator and back causes sound to become garbled.


What was not tested

I did not test savestates, nor did I attempt to run any game other than Pokémon Black Version.

Additional Comments

Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised that this ran at all, much less in a semi-usable state, given Wine's rather limited 64-bit support.
