What works

Installs, and appears to start. 

Tested on SS13 only, all in game mechanics work, decent performance. 

What does not

Game before workaround gets stuck at "Loading game information..." when first started up.


On some servers chat is broken, mainly Goon, /tg has a fallback to a simpler chat and still works. Lot's of GUI's are broken. This is
theorized to be because of a reliance on Internet Explorer 11.


I solved the loading error with

winetricks mfc42 vcrun2013 corefonts wsh56 wsh57 ie8, jscript

What was not tested

BYOND games other than SS13 and SS13 servers other than Goonstation and /tg/

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

HowTo / Notes


Before installing BYOND run

winetricks mfc42 vcrun2013 corefonts wsh56 wsh57 ie8 jscript

Must be run on in a 32 bit Wine Prefix

On newer versions of WINE (Tested 7.22 and Above)

All that is necessary is 

winetricks ie8

IE11 dependencies and other issues

The way BYOND handles most of its GUIs is by rendering html inside of Internet Explorer. Nowadays, servers use fancy GUIs that are not compatible with Internet Explorer 8!

Even Internet Explorer 8 is currently rather buggy, if you have a fix for strange issues on servers using old GUIs that work with IE8 (But sometimes bug out and dont ever work until a restart), please let me know!

In theory running IE11 in WINE with BYOND would fix these issues, but there are a LOT of hurdles to getting IE11 to run in WINE. It is a dream of mine to get BYOND working on WINE, if you have information about anything related to BYOND or IE11, or would just like to try to help please contact me by clicking 'Tripping Tripod', any help is appreciated! Hopefully we can figure this out.
