In Windows, Tickle requires DirectX 7.0 or better and a working sound card. It is also recommended that the video is configured in True Color (32 bits) or at least High Color (15 or 16 bits) mode.
In Linux, Tickle requires the Qt runtime libraries (automatically installed in KDE) and a working ALSA driver. It is recommended that the video is configured in True Color (32 bits) mode.
In both cases there is no installation. Starting from the folder where the program has been copied, ROMs must be placed in a subdirectory names "roms" and if needed samples must be placed in a subdirectory named "samples". These and the names of the ROM archives are the same default settings used by MAME so it is usually sufficient to just place Tickle in the directory where MAME is.
Please note that no ROMs are distributed with Tickle, nor this site contains any. They must be legally obtained elsewhere. Also, the program must not be bundled or distributed with copyrighted ROMs or related material.
A list of ROMs supported by the latest release is available here.
