Installation worked without any issue.
I downloaded 0.96 and 0.96 patch 1 from http://forums.eventide.net/forums/.
To run the game:
- In winecfg, check "Run in virtual desktop", I put a resolution of 1024x768, but others may work. If you don't do this you'll have a message "Couldn't set to DirectX 3D mode.".
- Override msvcrt dll, in winecfg or by running :
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="msvcrtd=n" wine RubiesLauncher.exe
Walking, fighting, quests, pvp works. All zones worked without problem (I mean land zone, didn't test every cave...)
It is not really smooth and rendered, even with all minimal settings, but I played some hours...
What does not
Same as in version 0.95: gentry zone crashed when loading zone.
What was not tested
Some caves and dungeon, some quests...
Not very smooth and well-rendered, but everything else worked and it's playable Admin note: rating changed to conform to rating definitions.
