HowTo / Notes

Running Puddle without any requirements
Run installer without changing anything. Allow installation of all components after installation.

The following procedure is needed because of non-functional launcher which depends on Native .NET:

Go to /home/yourusername/Documents/Puddle directory and create a file name Settings.dat. Include the following text and save:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Settings languages="English">
  <Display displayDeviceName="" width="1366" height="768" fullScreen="true" vsync="true" aspectRatio="16:9" />

Note: you may want to change resolution depending on your computer.

Go to: /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Puddle/ and run Puddle.exe without using the shortcut on your desktop.

No response in the game's main menu
by Thierry C. on Saturday June 7th 2014, 20:00
Although I'm able to use the keyboard and/or the joystick and the mouse for creating a new game profile, when I arrive to the game's main menu, it doesn't react any longer to the keyboard/joystick/mouse input.
This problem happens in Wine 1.4 as well as in Wine 1.6 (the latest stable version).

My LINUX version is Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander).

What error do you see when you launch it using a terminal?

Can you reproduce this with the latest Ubuntu (14.10) and Wine 1.7.29? Thanks.
