-| In Wine there's an annoying issue where some font isn't loading. Most of the text is fine, but which difficulty you're selecting is garbled which is a problem in online multiplayer. Entering chat text crashes the game too, though you can still use the pre-determines phrases. Apparently you have to create the save file in a Windows system too, though mine was already made before I tried on Linux.\\ The bug is in //EDF 5// too. |||+| In Wine there's an annoying issue where some font isn't loading.

 +| A bit slow to start compared to other entries, but some of the improvements are really nice: completing a stage on one difficulty clears it on all lower difficulties, wing diver has some nice extra moves, you can find weapons and armour for all classes, the pillbugs are back! ||| 
 +| <del>Like in //4.1// you still need to create a file on a Windows machines, and freely typing text in multiplayer will also crash the game.</del> (Text entry works for me now!) The scrambled text has be cleaned up though! <del>The big annoyance are unavoidable crashes on some stages, online and offline. Avoid buying until that's fixed in Proton.</del> (also no more unavoidable, predictable crashes!) |||

-|  |||+Runs well. There's an issue with Media Foundation stuff that means the game gets stuck on FMV (for example, the game's ending), but you can fix this with [[github>z0z0z/mf-install]]. This MF has already been fixed in some games, so I think //MHW// working perfect is just a matter of time! |||

 +^ //Princess Remedy In a World of Hurt// | Wine: **perfect** | | 
 +| Really fun little game. RPG-like, but the battle are real-time action things where you fight viruses to cure people. I really like the 'jealous chest'. And it's free! ||| 
 +| Add ''-safe'' to the launch commands to enable sound. |||

 +^ //[[..:Rocket League]]// | Wine: **perfect** | also on: PS4, Switch, XBO | 
 +| <3 One of my faves, and I still play it a bunch. Fun on my own, fun with pals. Unfortunately, dropped Linux and Mac support. |||

 +^ //Tametsi// | Wine: **great**  | | 
 +| Logic puzzles in the vein of //[[..:Minesweeper]]// and [[person:Matthew Brown]]'s //[[..:cells_series|'Cells]]// games, but with even more varied board designs and //even// more challenge. Really like it, and it was only a buck-or-so. |||
