Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installing, launching, general play (played about 3 hours solo)
  • Multiplayer, joining through Steam Friend's list (played about 2 hours with a friend)

What does not

  • Performance is not as good as Windows. This game doesn't have an OpenGL implementation, so you're stuck with DirectX.
  • Occasional flickering on volume textures (e.g. clouds)
  • Setting the 'Tether' key to any special character (like semicolon ';') - may be a bug in the game for Windows or something specific to xserver configuration.


In general, Unreal Engine 4 overrides for other games help, but a notable performance boost can be had by appending to drive_c/users/{user}/Local Settings/Application Data/Astro/Saved/Config/WindowsNoEditor/Engine.ini:


What was not tested

  • Interplanetary travel
  • Activating Teleportation/Alien nodes

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

This is my setup.

# Create a wineprefix for this game

DIR="$(dirname $(readlink -m ${0}))"

export WINEPREFIX="${DIR}/.winebottle"
export WINEDEBUG=-all

mkdir -p "${WINEPREFIX}"

# this is mostly
winetricks -q winxp
wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\Steam.exe" /v "Version" /t "REG_SZ" /d "winxp64" /f
wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\steamwebhelper.exe" /v "Version" /t "REG_SZ" /d "winxp64" /f

wget ""
wine SteamSetup.exe

More generally, follow the Steam AppDB entry (if you don't go with WindowsXP, networking code doesn't work):
