Play Space Station 13 via Wine in Linux!

This game is one of my all time favorites. It has a steep learning curve to it, but omg it is so much fun when you get the hang of it. Here is how you can play it on Linux!

1.) Get the Byond client from this link

2.) Run the installer with wine.

3.) You will need to get mfc42.dll from  (click on “DOWNLOAD ZIP-FILE”)

4.) Extract the contents of the to .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/BYOND/bin

5.) There should be a BYOND icon on your desktop after the install. You can now run it just by double clicking on it.

6.) You will now need to make a BYOND account.

7.) After you register, login, and you can now add locations for Space Station 13

8.) Go to File, and then Open Location.

9.) Add “byond://” <– This is the NOX server. One of my Favorites.

10.) Enjoy playing!

I hope this helps out.

  1. I did what your guide said and BYOND simply doesn’t launch. Anything else I might need? Running Linux Mint 16

      i am having almost the same problem, but i get the behind splash screen that loads up, but its all black, with the logo in the center, and it says its “loading game information”, and it never gets past that. I have been trying to figure it out. No luck so far. After a few updates on their client, i started to get this issue. I will let you know if i make any progress. Sorry about this.
