What works

Everything, basically. I even used programs like Cave Editor (which worked the best) to modify the game. OrgView.exe and DoConfig.exe work aswell.

What does not

Sometimes Cave Story may not register any keyboard input, but i don't think that's a Wine issue (it fixed after a fiddling around in DoConfig, but i'm unsure whether it's doconfig or a simple relaunch which fixes the problem).

OrgView has a slight graphical glitch which doesn't matter for an average user.


What was not tested

Nothing, everything checked. Finished the entire game and a few mods.

Additional Comments

I had problems working with a different program on Wine above 1.7 which included working with files, I might test if Cave Story has the same issue (saving, saving config) on newer versions of Wine later.
