Additional Comments

The game starts with a blank screen, you can hear the sounds of the starting intro and menu, and the keyboard and mouse are working (you can skip the starting intro and click on the menu - if you can guess where anything is). But other than that, you can't do anything. Warning: If you're going to try to run it, be warned you'll not be able to quit the game unless you run it in Wine virtual desktop mode - the screen goes black and you can't escape it. You can however switch to a tty and kill the process that way.

black screen problem solution

This post saved me and the author is my personal hero of the week:

1. Create a new file 'player.ini' into the app folder:
~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Steam/drive_c/Program\ Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/Syberia/player.ini

2. Paste the following line into the file and save:

1024 768 16 0 BaseCMO.cmo

(If I am not mistaken then this sets x,y screen resolution and color depth, you can play around with the values)

3. Now restart Syberia
