What works

The game and all of its features.

What does not

Installer freezes as soon as you reach the shortcuts selection screen. The workaround is to run the installer in silent mode. (Instructions bellow.)

Playing videos while in Fullscreen may freeze the game. Only way to close is to switch workspaces or TTY and kill the process.

Additional Comments

How to "Hack Into the Gate": Step 1: Create a Wine_32 Prefix if you don't already have one. If you have a Wine_64 Prefix that you are using, back it up (you may rename it) before proceeding. The following command creates a Wine_32 Prefix: WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg Step 2: Install the following libraries, using winetricks: quartz, devenum, wmp10 (requires Wine_32 Prefix), dirac, ffdshow (check MPEG and MPEG2 on install), and ogg (opencodecs). Step 3: Install the game in silent mode. To do this enter the folder where the installer is located from a terminal and run the installer with the following command: wine ./Setup.exe /silent The installer will prompt to install any remaining dependencies and auto install the game with its default configuration. Step 4: In winecfg, you need to DLL override: quartz, devenum, dirac, ffdshow, d3dx9_24, d3dx9_25, d3dx9_26, d3dx9_27, d3dx9_28, d3dx9_29, d3dx9_30, d3dx9_31, d3dx9_32, d3dx9_33, d3dx9_34, d3dx9_35, d3dx9_36, d3dx9_37, d3dx9_38, d3dx9_39, d3dx9_40, d3dx9_41, d3dx9_42, d3dx9_43. Winetricks automatically overrides most of these system-wide. To avoid compatibility issues with other wine software, go to Application Settings, add the Steins;Gate executable located at "/drive_c/Program Files/Steins;Gate/STEINSGATE.exe" and then override all of the previously listed DLLs. Step 5: (Optional) run Steins;Gate from the terminal to receive debug output. Useful to identify if there are any issues or any of the previous steps went wrong. OTHER NOTES The following text is constantly popping on the debug, yet performance doesn't seem to suffer: err:ole:CoInitializeEx Attempt to change threading model of this apartment from multi-threaded to apartment threaded The game performs slightly faster than it does on Windows, under the same hardware.
