What works

Installing through Steam, starting, menus, settings, gameplay.

What does not

In an emulated virtual desktop, the game does not receive keyboard input when first started. Alt-tabbing to the window fixes it. This is not a problem when run without a virtual desktop.


What was not tested

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Gold because of the keyboard issue with a virtual desktop. Steam wanted to reinstall DirectX every time I started the game. That's not a Wine bug; googling shows lots of Windows Steam users complaining about that problem with many different games. I fixed it by editing the installscript.vdf file in the Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/The Stanley Parable/CommonRedist/DirectX subdirectory.

HowTo / Notes

Fix for lighting bug

2015-02-11 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.

This is apparently a bug caused by a combination of the NVidia driver and Wine after wine 1.5-ish. The easy fix is to disable multi-core rendering in Source engine games.
