What works

Everything tested: Login, launching a Space Station 13 game

What does not

Performance is abysmal: Launched Space Station 13 game ran consistently with ~0,25fps and according input lag. None of the different video and WINE configurations I tried changed anything:

  • CSMT vs no-CSMT (Toggled using the winecfg option in wine-staging – when CSMT was enabled the dreamseeker.exe process would additionally consume 100% CPU on one core, but this would not impact the frame rate in any way.)
  • Hardware vs Software rendering (Toggled using MESA's LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 environmental setting.)
  • 32- vs 64-bit WINEPREFIX
  • WINE stable vs devel vs staging

Workarounds

Used the equivalent of winetricks wsh57 mfc42 vcrun6 ie8 to prepare the environment. Tested both a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX and my regular 64-bit WINEPREFIX (yes, I actually maned to install ie8 there…).

What was not tested

Any real gameplay as it was just not possible/bearable.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Also tested with 5.14 devel (non-staging) and 5.0.1 stable versions of WINE. Rating is Bronze as it was technically working, just unusable in practice. The desktop environment used was KDE Plasma 5.19 with the KWin Wayland compositor – running under X11 way not tested.

 

Some notes on the previously suggested winetricks recipe:

  • The wsh56 and jscript winetricks verbs are deprecated aliases of wsh57 and are not required anymore.
  • Installing ie7 through winetricks does not work anymore, but one can directly install ie8 and BYOND will then launch successfully and show its webviews.
  • As mentioned, it is possible to also perform this recipe on a 64-bit WINEPREFIX – with identical results –, but then installing Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Server 2003 64-bit is a huge pain due to lack of winetricks support for this.
