What works

  • Game is fully playable with keyboard
  • Graphics look as good as in windows
  • Windowed mode works perfectly, so does fullscreen (switch between using Alt+Enter)
  • No lag

What does not

Even with xact enabled and the xaudio2_7 forced to native, sound remains slightly choppy.


winetricks xact
winetricks xact=native

What was not tested

alternative inputs (gamepads)

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

  1. Install Porting Kit
  2. Create Custom Wrapper
  3. Select WS9WineStaging3.9 (32bit, not 64bit), select "MacDriver" instead of X11, tick "Steam"
  4. Let the wrapper create the wine prefix, and go through the steam install which automatically shows up, at the end of it, untick "run steam"
  5. In winetricks, run "winetricks xact" command
  6. Then in winecfg, in the "Library" tab, search/find "xaudio2_7" and edit it to run "Native" (instead of "Native, Built-in")
  7. Apply/save
  8. Run the wrapper
  9. Steam will launch, log in
  10. Buy / Install Sonic Mania
  11. ... and hopefully, play with no serious issue

Porting Kit is I am sure not necessary, but it is free and does hugely simplify.
