After obtaining the proper .dll's, the launcher will load properly and display the current news.
What does not
Received an 'unable to patch' error message that suggested the game files had been tampered with and to re-install when downloading an installing patches.
When all patches are applied:
The environment doesn't fully load. It crashes with a page fault if game options are set to use the 3d card.
Gives an error message of a file being missing or corrupted & for the game to be re-installed if 3d card is not used.
What was not tested
One of the .dll's was obtained by installing the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 via Wine. The other was obtained via the vcrun6 library in winetricks.
