What works

  • Installation.
  • Starting the demo level.
  • The cutscene at the beginning.
  • Regular Gameplay.
  • Quick-Saves (F5) and Quick-Loads (F8) during gameplay.
  • Loading from the pause menu.
  • Playing through the end.
  • Proper text and colour for in-game hints and indications like negative (i.e. loss of) HP.
  • Sounds and music.

What does not

  • Restoring the application if it gets minimized when running Wine in virtual-desktop mode.
  • The game window gets auto-minimized on switching of workspaces (bug #37937). There is no problem in restoring it though.
  • There is a delay after loading a saved game. (Bug #39513).


  • To prevent the game window from auto-minimizing when changing of workspace, run the game in Wine's virtual-desktop mode. Be warned however that you might not be able to restore the game window if it happens to get minimized.
  • There is a patch in comment #20 of the bug report (#39513) which is able to get rid of the delay.
