What works

Plays like you would expect it to.

  • Steam installation
  • Configuration tool
  • Windowed mode
  • Fullscreen mode
  • Steam overlay
  • Works with controller
    • I tested with my Dualshock 4; results:
      • Joystick decides direction, circle is chu and triangle is hey
      • Could not set directional keys as directions in-game, but after using the '--emulate-xpad-wireless' argument with the ds4drv git i could map the directional keys
      • Generally the controller is unresponsive, which can be annoying
    • An Xbox-controller might be a lot better
  • Video and audio is in-sync when video is played at 30 FPS; otherwise it runs insanely fast
    • To achieve this, see extra comments

What does not

  • 32-bit systems (because 'strangle' is only compatible with 64-bit systems; see extra comments)
  • Trying to Alt+Tab while fullscreen freezes the game (playing in another tty might solve the problem by not needing to Alt+Tab)
  • Sometimes fullscreen doesn't work (try to play around with the resolutions in the configuration tool)


What was not tested

Nothing I am aware of.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

To make the program run properly, that is in 30 FPS, you need to build and install the third-party program strangle, which can be found as libstrangle on Github. It is only compatible with 64-bit systems. After it is installed use it in this way: VSYNC=0 WINEPREFIX=/path/to/prefix strangle 30 wine /path/to/prefix/path/to/Steam.exe Yes, because you strangle Steam, you strangle Space Channel 5. Otherwise no external libraries. Steam installs the necessary ones. Because of needing strangle, this test is given a gold rating.
