Playing on Linux

As Game Maker is not available on Linux we need to execute the Windows executable using wine and mono.

Debian 10 (Buster)

Execute these lines on a terminal to install the needed packages. The second line can vary according to the version.

sudo apt-get install wine wine-mono
msiexec /i /usr/share/wine/mono/wine-mono-4.5.6.msi

Download the latest version of Mega Man Maker and extract it. Navigate to the destination directory and run:

wine MegaMaker.exe

A error message might occur saying "Array index out of range". Click OK and ignore it.


What was tested:

  • The game runs. (10 mins tested)
  • Fullscreen does work. Alt + Tab works without problems.
  • Controller support. Not restricted to Xbox controllers as buttons can be remapped.
  • Music and Sfx through Pulseaudio.
  • Share button for Tweeting opens default internet browser. Tweeting was tested.


Possible troubles:

  • Tearing, as VSync seems to be not working out of the box.
  • Server Connection errors can occour occasionally. (Is this even a Issue only on Linux?)

Workaround for VSync on Nvidia GPUs

Open a terminal and start the Nvidia X Server Settings

nvidia-settings
  1. Click on X Server Display Configuration inside the tree on the left.
  2. Click on Advanced...
  3. Enable the checkbox Force Full Composition Pipeline
  4. Click Apply.

Don't save this as this might have negative side effects on other software.
The tearing should not occur any more.
