Additional Comments

Purchased DRM free version of Cuphead from

This test is intentionally using a very old version of Wine. The reason is to see if Cuphead will work "out of the box" with Debian 9 ("Stretch"). I also purposefully used the open source Nouveau driver for my video card to see if it would work. I am pleased to say that everything works great.

To install: 

    apt install wine-development

    wine  setup_cuphead_20170929_\(15295\)_\(g\).exe

If installer shows any error messages, just close and ignore them. Game itself has no problems.
