Now comes the racer Sonic Riders, a concept that initially seems to make sense for SEGA's speedy mascots.

Additional Comments

Two notes to remember: 1. Game tends to hang more often then on Windos, however it hangs there too, so this must be a game bug, that wine simply triggers more often. 2. I noticed one minor graphical glitch when Eggman was displayed in one of story mode "movies" - this was very minor, and lasted for few secnods only, no other glitches, as far as I can tell. Tested on GF9800GT, with nvidia driver 285.05.09.

HowTo / Notes

How to bypass "pressing enter doesn't start race" bug
For some distros there is a max opened files limit that is too small for this game - Debian is one of such distros for example. This will prevent you from starting a race because keyboard will go dead. To fix this you need to increase max opened file limit. For Debian - simply put something like this in /etc/security/limits.conf:

USERNAME hard nofile 655355

(of course, change USERNAME to your user name ;] )

and re-log - this should allow you to play this game just fine.

This "bug" also affects Sonic Heroes.

NOTE: This is NOT wine bug - this is simply a security measure in some distributions.
