Login works via PlayPOTBS.exe
3rd person perspective works
Naval combat works
Sounds works flawlessly
Loading the game takes a very long time the first time, but subsequent times takes considerably less, still on the order of 5 minutes from patcher to playable game. Once in game the load times are only slightly longer than the Windows native version.
What does not
Unable to read EULA on startup of patcher.
Unable to scroll through patch notes in patcher, or follow links from patcher.
I have been unable to change the resolution to higher than 1024x768, without going full screen
Turning off the option to enable high quality shaders, seems to remove textures from everything and you are left only with the UI and the sky as being rendered.
When in combat in 3rd person behind your character there are no animations when performing the characters attacks, nor are there any animations from the enemy NPCs, you are still able to combat, this just makes it more difficult.
What was not tested
Everything from levels 1 - 20 was tested, including pvp.
