Steam:HowTo

When Steam is installed go to My Games, right click on darwinia and click install. Then say okay to any following windows.

Once Darwinia is downloaded open Wine File (in Fedora it is applications>system tools>Wine File) and browse to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOURUSERNAME\darwinia where YOURUSERNAME is your steam username.

Open preferences.txt and find the line that says

SoundLibrary = anyvalue where anyvalue can be anything (it should be DSP)

simply change the line to say

SoundLibrary = null

then save preferences.txt and darwinia will run fine.

What works

Installed without issue.

Played through the tutorial level fine.

What does not

Real-Time Audio Effects needs to be disabled in the options menu before starting a level otherwise the game crashes.

Did not notice any music/sound at all, this may be related to the RTAE needing to be disabled.
