Face of Mankind is a Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) Action RPG
in a single persistent universe. You will control a single character in the
science-fiction game world.
Once installed on your PC you will have access to an ever changing game environment via
your internet connection. Thousands of players throughout the universe
co-operate, compete or co-exist in a realistic and futuristic world of the
The skill and luck of the players from rival factions change the balance of power.
Players have full control over their gaming experience by creating their
own rules, faction hierarchy and story.
The objective of the game is to evolve your character to its ultimate potential,
whether that is the accumulation of wealth, power, social status or all three.
Alternatively run winetricks and use the interface to manually select what you want - take note that everything above is recommended for FOM; d3dx9, dinput8, vcrun2008 and wininet are requirements.
Now run the FOM installer like you would any other Wine application.
When FOM has installed run it and perform a complete check. You can now either click Start to patch through the launcher or you can quit the launcher and extract the any patches from your Windows installation to ~/.wine/drive_c/"Program Files/Face of Mankind/PatchTmp/Download". If you go with the latter run the launcher again and the patches will be installed without downloading.
Mouse Cursor Issue
Until bug 6971 is fixed you can improve the gameplay by setting mouse sensitivity and mouse smoothing to their maximum level (ingame). This stops the cursor leaving the window quickly. You can also re-centre the mouse by tapping LEFT-CTRL (which toggles the menu).
Another suggestion (not tried) is to turn on virtual desktop in winecfg.
