Creation of the character works, from beginning to end.
Logging in into the EA account seems to work, the application shows "Logged in" after providing the login information.
Did _not_ need
FullScreen=0 GraphicsDetailLevel=0 DisableMRT=1Â
as reported in the "HOWTO stop the flickering black textures": no such problem occurs to me.
What does not
starting the application directly from the installer does not work.
alsa audio output does not work when using the launcher, while it works
fine if running the creator binary directly (launcher application gains
control of the alsa output, and does not release it in time for the
spawned process to be able to open alsa).
There are some reported GLSL errors and the application feels a bit sluggish.
Uploading the information to the online profile does _NOT_ seem to work.
The "Uploading info" flashes for many seconds, and then eventually disappears, but the online profile does not show the uploaded character.
Accessing the "Online Profile" from the game does also _NOT_ seem to work.
There seems to be a problem with the ddeString interface to winebrowser. The reported error is
err:winebrowser:get_url_from_dde Unable to retrieve URL from string L"\""
trace:exec:SHELL_execute retval 33
err:winebrowser:wmain Usage: winebrowser URL
see additional comments for the full exec,shell log.

Sound works when starting the character creator application (located in the "bin_ship" subdirectory) without using the launcher application.
