Installation, tutorial, online gameplay, all maps, windowed & fullscreen gameplay all work after setting some options in Wine and using some winetricks.sh font-related options. (Pls. see comments for details)
What does not
Changing channels. Game client hangs when you try to go back to channel selection screen.
Exiting game client. When you exit game, you have to double-check that the program (FOH.EXE) actually unloads from memory, and terminate it if it's still present (I use the system monitor applet to check/terminate)
Fonts display are problematic, but resolved by using font-related options found in Winetricks.
What was not tested
All aspects of game were tested.
Would be Gold if the channel changing worked properly, and if the game client unloaded from memory properly when you exit the game. Wine configuration: 1. winhttp and wininet set to (native, builtin) 2. Graphics options checked: - Allow window manager to decorate the windows - Allow the window manager to control the windows Winetricks font-related options are needed. Install stated options one at a time and test client for errors after each option is set up. I have not determined whether client errors were caused by missing fonts or bad fonts. Only workaround for changing channels is restarting game client.
