The NCSoft launcher will automatically update itself to the latest version on run.
This page is for the actual Launcher only.
The Launcher can be installed and started, but only after installing dotnet20 via winetricks.
What does not
Anything beyond starting the Launcher.Â It starts updating itself and fails with "Path not found".
What was not tested
The actual functionality of the Launcher, since it fails updating itself on startup.
I'm marking this as garbage level because not only do you need a working Windows install to get past the self-update issue, but (from what I read) you then need to use command line switches that basically bypass all the functionality of the program to skip the Launcher and jump straight to your game. That's garbage level functionality, since you might as well just call your game with the proper launcher-bypass command line switches.

Before installation, run "winetricks ie6 dotnet20 gdiplus". The launcher fails to apply the downloaded update patch, and returns a "Path not found" error... but you can work around it by manually replacing the launcher with an updated one. It's possible to run/update/install games through the launcher by using the "/LaunchGame=" parameter.
