Ignition (a racing game) Runs on Ubuntu with Wine

Filed under

Ignition is an old racing game that is now abandonware and it runs pretty well under Wine. As it’s abandonware (the company that created it no longer exists) it’s available to download from the Internet.

Step One: Installation

It’s probably best to create a separate Wine prefix for this game. The reason is that as its an old game the menu screen runs at a 320×200 resolution, it’s unlikely that your Xorg configuration supports that so as a workaround we can tell Wine to run it in an emulated desktop rather than true fullscreen. So, once the file is downloaded, extract it somewhere temporarily, and open a terminal to the folder containing SETUP.EXE.
