What works

Main menu, starting/loading a game, and the first two missions. Mouselook now works as it should be (as it would be quite unbearable to play even if you managed to turn on MouseWarpOverride in earlier Wine revisions, as the menus are solely mouse-driven)

What does not

Projected shadows don't show up on certain occasions. (it did show up in the Briny Beach level once as far as I can recall, but I'm not sure if it was from an earlier Wine version)


What was not tested

The full playthrough.

Additional Comments

As stated above, mouse aiming's no longer an issue with this game (as well as several other titles). The game also seems to work well on a fresh prefix with no hacks or overrides whatsoever, so I'll give it a platinum.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO - Installation
  • Install as usual (i.e. insert/mount setup CD, follow setup instructions, etc.)
  • Run app.
  • You may try forcing mouse wrap mode via Winetricks or some registry hax, but this will make menu navigation as unfortunate as a Baudelaire orphan.
    • No longer an issue in Wine 1.3.21.
  • If you want to change the resolution to, let's say 1080 or 1440x900, go to your Home folder, and then open the game.ini file which can be found in the Lemony Snicket directory. Find the line that says "[WinDrv.WindowsClient]" (sans quotes, of course), and then under it you'll find some parameters for Windowed and Fullscreen mode resolution values (FullscreenViewportX and FullscreenViewportY). Edit the values for it to correspond with your monitor's native resolution, and then save.
