What works

Everything in the game works great, but there is no sound.

What does not

  • Sound does not work: neither music nor sound effects.
  • Alt+Tab freezes the game.


To enable sound:

  1. open Wine configuration,
  2. go to Applications tab,
  3. add the game executable (YLILWin64.exe) and
  4. set Windows version for Yooka-Laylee to one of the followings, XP, 2003, Vista or 2008.

All the levels thoroughly, I played only up to the tenth one.
