This is the latest version of the Subspace Client Continuum. This is the only way you can log on to many of the servers as the client prevents most of the ways of cheating. This necessitates that you apply a source patch to bypass the anti-cheating mechanisms.

What works

After patching game works just like on Windows.

What does not

Some graphical glitches and sound timing is a bit off. Notably, some LVZ graphics in zones may not appear, but those are isolated cases.

Default key controls may not function in some desktop managers such as Gnome without first changing. Specifically the ALT key to bring up the map.


What was not tested

Additional Comments

I found that I got improved performance using the r300 experimental driver rather than the official ATI fglrx driver.

HowTo / Notes


Continuum is freeware and can be downloaded from

Continuum normally works by creating another process of itself with the inability to use OpenProcess, as a anticheat measure.
Wine doesn't emulate the ability to use these permission flags, so it endlessly loops. With the following patch to the Wine source, it checks for this, and allows Continuum to run.

To apply the patch to wine:

  1. Download the wine-source
  2. Copy and paste the patch text (found in the box below) into a text-editor.
  3. Save as continuum.patch in the wine source directory.

Copy and paste the text below into a file called continuum.patch:

--- a/dlls/kernel32/process.c
+++ b/dlls/kernel32/process.c
@@ -2956,6 +2956,9 @@ HANDLE WINAPI OpenProcess( DWORD access, BOOL inherit, DWORD id )
     CLIENT_ID           cid;

+    /* This fixes continuum, but seems to break nothing */
+    if (access & PROCESS_VM_WRITE) return NULL;
     cid.UniqueProcess = ULongToHandle(id);
     cid.UniqueThread = 0; /* FIXME ? */

And apply the patch with:
patch -p 1 < continuum.patch
Then go ahead and compile wine.


That's all that needs to be done. =) Many thanks go out to the wiki at


For the HOWTO patch, it has not been tested thouroughly, or at all, and could cause regressions for other programs. Please use at your own risk.
