What works

Gameplay all works on a platinum level. If you do not want or need to use a controller you can consider everything to 'just work'

What does not

Controller configuration doesn't quite work. 


To use controllers you need to manually create a PlayerInput.cfg file as the configuration utility doesn't quite work with Wine's dinput implementation it seems. See the notes below on how to do this.

What was not tested

I have not yet finished the entire game, but it all works thus far.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • I ran the game with CSMT and with Gallium-nine. Both seem to work about equally well. 
  • I've only tested on a 32bit wine prefix

HowTo / Notes

Configuring for controller support

By default the Configuration tool on Wine is not capable of properly generating a PlayerInput.cfg file.

Through some trial and error I've created a PlayerInput.cfg file that will work for xbox 360 pads in Wine.

You can create a file in

drive_c/users/${USER}/My Documents/My Games/Sonic Generations/Saved Games

With the following contents:

$G:00000001-0000-0000-0000-000000000000$B:31 30 17 32 28 14 16 18 2 4 200 208 205 203 0 0 0 0 2$A:0 0 0 0 $D:0$
Microsoft X-Box 360 pad (event)
$G:028e045e-0000-0000-0000-504944564944$B:1 3 4 2 8 7 5 6 0 0 2 2 0 1 0 0 0 0 1$A:3 3 5 5 $D:0$

Make sure the file is saved with DOS line endings, an easy way to do this is by running

$ unix2dos PlayerInput.cfg

This also sets some reasonable defaults for the keyboard input. You can run the configuration utility to view the settings.
