What does not
There is no music.
Controller input is xinput-only, and doesn't work with x360ce, meaning no controller support for wine. A simple controller->keyboard program is sufficient for this game, if you've got one.
The steam overlay will crash the game (making inviting friends etc more difficult)
What was not tested
This is a .NET game, which of course makes it nightmarish. I used winetricks to install dotnet40. Due to some problem with XNA/WMP, music won't play. Furthermore, the game was INCREDIBLY finicky about .NET versions. In my attempts to fix the music issue, I tried installing dotnet35 (as well as the required dotnet40); in that configuration, the game won't even launch. The full process I used to get a working (but musicless) install: (1) Create a fresh wine prefix (2) Install Steam (note that Steam has the -no-dwrite issue, but that's not a bug for this page) (3) winetricks dotnet40 (4) Install SpeedRunners (5) Launch SpeedRunners
