What works

The game launches and starts playing the theme music.

What does not

The game goes into full screen, displaying a red background, but does not advance from there.

On Windows 10, on the same machine, these issues were not present.


What was not tested

Was stuck at launch. I haven't explored whether any command line options or other tuning options could help.

Additional Comments

Tested with macOS 13.3.1, on a  2019 16" MacBook Pro.

Tested with launchers:

  • Winery, using Wine 7.7, using engine WS11WineCX64Bit22.1.0-rc2
  • CrossOver , using Wine 7.

I did with with Wine 8, but I wasn't able to complete the Steam executable due to limitations of the experimental WoW64 support. 

I will retest once one of the following conditions change:

  • WoW64 Wine is indicated as being in a more useable state
  • CrossOver releases changes for there is 7.x based release
  • Steam is released with 64-bit Window support
