The game it self works more or less flawless if one plays without detail textures and ignores some minor issues.
The same can not be said about the launcher.
What does not
Only "problems" are characters in the charactar select section
shows up white, and the same with the mini planets in the "world" map.
I personelly think the performance issue in high-poly/high-population areas are a major issue.
When the FPS is to low (about 10-15fps) it becomes really hard to interact with UI dialogs and such.
About the laucher issues; even with the IE/Gecko ActiveX component install, it still dose not work. One will need to do all there news reading and account management on SOEs webpage "manually".
The launcher also seems to get cropped when run in a small virtual desktop.
What was not tested
Caverns were not tested (I would assume it being quite a performance heavy area).
No way near all vehicles were tested. Same goes with weapons.
I put it on Gold because of the launcher and detail texture issues. I am not sure is the performance drop issues really is a good reason to give it a minus, being a WineD3D issue and all.
