What works

Installing the game with the web installer, logging in, changing settings, character selection and loading the game works out of the box.

In game NPC interaction works as it should.

Chat interface works as it should.

What does not

Character textures do not work properly and entities can be seen through walls. Setting the game to low graphics settings fixed the glitch in character selection screen and select areas (tarantian noble district for example) but not in all (armsman's tavern, tarantian villas for example).

In the tested Rise of the Godslayer content (Grasslands) could not move the character as if the network packets never got through (the character kept warping back to the starting point and was thus immobile). Was not tested further.

Workarounds

What was not tested

PVP, Raiding, starting area, combat generally.

Additional Comments

Tested under quad-core 2.4GHz system with Nvidia 9800 gfx, latest drivers and in 64-bit environment. Game works but with a noticeably lower framerate than in a corresponding Windows 7 environment. Only extra package installed in the system is corefonts via winetricks.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Since there hasn't been enough testing I suggest you for the time being to do these steps in order to produce results.

1) Go with a terminal to the destination where Age of Conan has been installed . (Update: probably not necessary in 1.31) eg. cd "/home/maniac/.wine/ drive_c/Program Files/Funcom/Age of Conan/" and so on

2) wine ConanPatcher.exe If you want to skip the Launcher, check Katsu Akimoto 's post below in the comments... of course dont forget u have to update the client :P ; Not Tested with wine

If you get errors about DirectX when the patcher starts , download and install it

Update Note: You HAVE to use the directx dlls to native after last tests. Note sure which dll as i used the winetricks script to set all the dlls to native (winetricks d3dx9)

Same procedure with my desktop Linux PC. I got a new prefix tried it without any modification and it couldn't find DirectX in the system. So i i did $ winetricks directx then $ winetricks d3dx9.

Waiting for new test data by users in order to find bugs. Future test includes installing the game and running it , whereas as now running it from the windows partition
