Starting the game, ingame menus with keyboard and gamepad, playing with XBox 360 gamepad.
What does not
Changing resolutions. Also, it sometimes crashes on exit and needs to be killed from console as it obscures desktop.
What was not tested
Only first 2 levels of game were tried.
I had to run Super Meat Boy under XP emulation instead of Vista emulation, by adding a separate config for it under winecfg. (Steam does not run well for me under global XP emulation). You may have to install the DirectX updates manually if the Steam autoinstaller doesn't successfully install them. They can be found in /steamapps/common/super meat boy/Prerequisites/ There are some graphical glitches in the animations, especially for moving objects other than the player. (This could potentially make the game unplayable in later levels due to invisible glitched moving death sawblades!) Also,the game feels sluggish with VSync enabled. (Trying to play with VSync off is not recommended by the developer in any case). The Xbox 360 gamepad does work with it under Wine, but the buttons may be unresponsive the first time.
