What works

Install OK

Launch game OK 

Game OK

What does not

- setup never finish installation, windows childs are not visible, they appear behind the main window and you can not alt+tab in virtual window mode

- annoying black screen appear at launch

- crash before the main menu for Nvidia users

- the game is only 800x600 if launch in a virtual desktop mode


This game needs a little work to run almost perfectly on Linux.

1°) the Syberia setup program never finished installation

Use the task manager to close properly the setup program, launch: 

wine taskmgr

and choose the setup program to obtain focus on the window child

2°) When you launch the game you have only a black screen, you can hear game sounds
I have not yet found a tips to avoid the black screen to appear. All you can do is give focus to the correct game screen located behind the black screen.

--> solution a: you launch the game in a virtual desktop, open a terminal, go to the main Syberia folder, execute Sberia with this command line:
wine Syberia.exe & sleep 15; wine taskmgr
when the task manager appear, choose Syberia in the list or in the Wine task bar to give focus to the correct game screen

--> solution b you launch the game in a virtual desktop, download the utility nircmd.exe, copy it in the Syberia installation folder
and launch Syberia like this:
wine Syberia.exe & sleep 15;wine nircmd.exe win hide title Syberia; sleep 0.1; wine nircmd.exe win hideshow title Syberia

3°) the game crash after the cinematics, before the main menu appear

It is a bug that affect Nvidia users.

in a terminal execute this command:

wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver" "/v" "UseXVidMode" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "N"

No more crash for Nvidia users ( Thanks to "Bob Wya" from the WineHQ forum:

4°) in virtual desktop mode, the game size is 800x600

use dxwnd to launch the game in fullscreen, in virtual desktop mode, at your desktop resolution, use "respect ratio" option to keep a 4/3 ratio
