Wine instructions for Ubuntu 16.04
The following instructions allow you to play Streets of Rage Remake v5.1 using Wine (I have version 1.9.24, but it might work in others too).
In case you do not have it already, install
wine. You can get the current version (1.6) by running
sudo apt-get install wine. For the latest build, follow these instructions:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wine/wine-builds
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends winehq-devel
Download the Windows version of the game from here. (there are some extra soundtracks in the last post)
- Extract the
.rar file in your local folder, wherever you want. This will create a
- Run the
SorR.exe file with wine. Double-clicking it might be enough. If not, right-click on the file, and select "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader".
Meny entry: additionally to the above, you can create a Menu entry for the game, so that you can run easily from the Menu. To do so, open a terminal and run the following:
sudo nano SorR.desktop
The first command take you to the folder where
.desktop files (and menu entries) are stored. The second creates a file. Then, copy the text below into that file (with right-click or Ctrl+Shift+v):
Name=Streets of Rage Remake
Exec= wine /path/to/SORRv5.1/SorR.exe
/path/to/ with the corresponding path, and select the image you would like as icon, in case the one I chose is not of your like. once you have copied that, press Ctrl+O to save. To exit, press Ctrl+X.
Now, your menu entry is in the Games folder.
In-game instructions. The games comes configured for joystick. If you do not have one, then change the Controls commands, where you can select keyboard instead of joystick.
That's it. Sound works fine. Enjoy!
