etb: [gog installers should always be executed with the /nogui option.]

Machinarium is a flash progran and gog sells a copy that is embedded in a Windows flash player. But you can extract the .swf file and play with your native flashplayer*. This idea applies also to MacOS and Windows itself.

So, once you installed the game with Wine in a disposable wineprefix, or extracted the data with innoextract, go in the installation directory and execute this command:

$ dd if=machinarium.exe of=machinarium.swf bs=1 skip=4432896

dd will create the .swf file; you can delete all the other files if you want (not the directories!).

Move the installation directory elsewhere, delete the wineprefix and play with

$ flashplayer machinarium.swf

Otherwise you might make a small script file like:

------------------->
#!/bin/sh
cd "`dirname "$0"`"

/usr/bin/flashplayer machinarium.swf
-------------------<

flashplayer will put your saves in the same directory of all other macromedia flash programs, if you want to keep your saves with your game you can use a script file like this second one:

------------------->
#!/bin/sh
cd "`dirname "$0"`"
mkdir -p saves

HOME="$PWD"/saves /usr/bin/flashplayer machinarium.swf
-------------------<

flashplayer will make its files with settings and saves in two hidden directories inside ``saves''.

Otherwise you might want to keep the saves separated for each user:
------------------->
#!/bin/sh
cd "`dirname "$0"`"
mkdir -p "$HOME"/.machinarium/saves

HOME="$HOME"/.machinarium/saves /usr/bin/flashplayer machinarium.swf
-------------------<

Enjoy!

archy2: Is it like the Linux version that was distributed via Humble Bundle?
We would have noted on the game card that you would need to play the game via a browser if this was the case :)
