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)
Pretty much everything the unregistered copy can do. It installed fine, it accepted the massive database I installed of 17,716 cards, it accepted the 17,400 card images I had to go along with it. I could create and edit decks, I could save them. I could technically play with the decks in solitare mode and the little bit I ventured into multiplayer seemed to work too. The images (for both the cards and the UI) display well everywhere, including while actually playing.
What does not
In the gameplay mode (MWSPlay.exe), most of the important pieces of text don't appear. Life totals (basically your health), the timer and overall match time, the number of cards in your hand, in your library, in your graveyard, etc. You can workaround some of this (for example, double clicking your avatar to see your life), but without a lot of that text it's a bit of a hassle to play.
Plus it seems to run a little sluggish compared to Windows, but just a little bit.
What was not tested
Multiplayer Gameplay, Themes, Using a Registered Copy
To achieve all of this, I needed to use winetricks and install corefonts and gdiplus. Without gdiplus at least, the gameplay area would be really glitchy and pretty much unusable... plus without it many images come up black.
the Arial and Times fonts are needed for the numbers and names to show up on cards and zones.
(Please note:With the latest version of wine, do NOT delete the .dll that the other
test result comments told you to delete; if you do, it will give you problems with
the play area not displaying.)

MWSPlay Image Problem
by Arron M on Sunday February 27th 2011, 0:57
The play board grays out areas once they are covered with File, Game, Action, etc drop-down menus in single play. Cards from opponents hand show with just name and mana symbol on a blacked out box and same once put into play. Main players hand is same except when laid onto field the whole card icon vanishes and refuses to show unless I draw a box with my mouse over the cards and even then is still black boxed. Moving or tapping said cards causes them to vanish again. Lastly viewing cards in decks cause only mana symbols to show.
I'll keep looking at this and the 2 other forums on mwsplay for a solution but nothing yet. MWS works fine but Ive been working on this mwsplay probably for 4 days now on and off and about to destroy something.... haven't decide what yet but something cheap and expendable and it'll be glorious!!!

I'm getting an error message (Access violation at addres 015A1111. Read of address 015A0000.) when launching MWSplay with 1.3.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 64. I've tried this in a clean $HOME/.wine with corefonts and gdiplus, does this happen to anyone else?

Just a note: changing theme can sometimes freeze MWS, but it's normal. It's a bug that happens on Windows aswell, remove the "Custom Sets" directory in MWS's folder and restart it, you should be able to change theme without any problem

MWSplay.exe doesn't work

While MagicWorkstation.exe, MWSPlay.exe pops up an error every second: Access violation at address 70d09697 in module 'gdiplus.dll'. Read of address 00000048.
I tried installing corefonts with winetricks, but it didn't change anything. The same thing happens on both OpenSolaris with wine 1.1.31 and Ubuntu with 1.1.37, is there any way to solve this?
