Everything (with a little manual help during installation -- but no Windows needed).
What does not
Nothing (the large map has a small transparency issue when moving it on the screen, but minimizing and restoring the game fixes it).
What was not tested
Everything was tested.
Here's how you do it: (use winetricks to install d3dx9 before starting) 1. Download UOSASetup_105.exe 2. Run UOSASetup_105.exe. The installer will extract files and present you with a 'welcome' screen. 3. DO NOT SHUT DOWN THE INSTALLER!. If it asks you to update DX, say 'no'. 4. Navigate to .wine and go to drive_c -> windows -> temp. There should be a folder in that dir called 'RarSFX0' or something close to that. 5. In that folder is a dir called 'data1'. Those are the only files (2) you need to install the client. Move 'data1' to your desktop. The rest of the files are just fluff. 6. Cancel the installer. It will delete all the install dirs in windows -> temp, which is why you need to move 'data1' first. 7. Rename 'data1' to 'UltimaOnline' and move it to your Wine folder. You can put it wherever you like, just INSIDE drive_c ;-) 8. Open the folder you moved and there are two files: uopatch.exe and patch.cfg. Run uopatch.exe. It should create some files, uopatch.bin being one of them. If it doesn't start, just run it again. uopatch.exe must kick off uopatch.bin. If it doesn't (you can check in your System Monitor), just run another copy of uopatch.exe (don't close the one already running). For some reason that kicks uopatch.bin into starting. 9. The game will begin patching. 10. When the game is done, just run it and enjoy :-) Note: If you run into patching errors, make sure you don't have more than one copy of uopatch.exe running. While that helps getting uopatch.bin to start, it causes errors DURING patching. You may have to kill the process and restart. You will have to create your own shortcut to the executable. See? No Windows needed :-) BTW, this same installer is used for the new Dark Age of Camelot full client install and you can use the same process described here to install DAoC. I haven't fully tested it yet though.
