Additional Comments

Game runs using a simple bash script I created. It can be downloaded here: . Details can be found in the zip file downloaded from my Google Drive. Basically, MM is looking for a desktop environment of 16bpp (bits per pixel), which most Linux OS's use 24bpp by default. This seems to crash MM, thus why MM doesn't work out of the box. This script creates (with Xephyr installed) a virtual, 16bpp windowed environment for MM to run in. Its somewhat crude, but works never the less. Don't expect high FPS, although, it is playable (depending on setting, hardware, etc). Again, more information can be found in file I linked in the comments. Any feed back is welcome, which can be written to my email: Happy Gaming! *Note: I have tried this with newer versions of Wine, still with little improvement... I used Wine 1.6 because users of stable distros (Ubuntu LTS, Debian "Jessie" for example) are still using Wine 1.6 (as of this time).
