The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Starting the game, accessing the in character selection screen. The 3D characters which previously did not show up now are visible.
What does not
Joining the ship and in game. I'm able to get to the burst screen most of the time with Wine set to Windows XP in the configuration, though it always crashes during this joining phase. It seems like other windows compatibility besides XP do not work too well and usually make the game crash on start.
What was not tested
This is an awesome game with many hours of memorable game play to be had. It would be great to see it working in Linux and it seems like we are so close to having that become a reality.

Still Doesn't Work

Same issues are still present. Using Wine 1.3.8 on Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Patches applied by the loader generally work (failed the first time, relaunching the loader allowed it to continue), patches from inside the game work, logging in and selecting a character works, but during the loading screen leading up to the ship selecting menu I get:
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x110060 "heap.c: main process heap section" wait timed out in thread 0038, blocked by 0039, retrying (60 sec)
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x110060 "heap.c: main process heap section" wait timed out in thread 003e, blocked by 0039, retrying (60 sec)
The game just hangs here while still playing audio.
To get in game

To get in game, I have to enable a virtual desktop and start "online.exe" within the games install directory, otherwise the game will see itself starting outside of said directory and will not know where to find its data files.
Once in game, the game still crashes before allowing one to pick their "Ship" to be on.
