I had a chance to try running it on the EeePC 701 under Wine today (EasyPeasy 1.1 - an Ubuntu derivative), with my EeePC plugged into a large external screen at 1980x1050 resolution. The title screen loads and the music starts, but the bottom is cut off so I can’t see the menu buttons, and there is no mouse pointer. I also tried using winecfg to “Emulate a virtual desktop” of 1024x768, or allowing it to run un-windowed fullscreen. Neither helped - it always seemed to try and run fullscreen. There was also an occasional strange screen flicker while Wine was running. I did not see the “module type not found -> fighter power” error, but I wasn’t launching it from the console.
Overall, It had a bit of a sluggish feel about it, even though I only saw the title screen. This makes me think that the game may not run very well, even if I could somehow manage to get it past that point. I think I’ll give up on the EeePC 701 idea for the moment - nice idea, but luckily I have other options to play GSB.
