What works

Installation, patching, logging in, playing (exploring, fighting, castle upgrading).

What does not

- Pictures in login menu are flickering (not updating properly). - Notepad and castle demo doesn't show their contents - seems like these things fail to load some kind of browser. - Sometimes several password characters may be eaten if typed quickly. - I am always disconnected when exit my castle (maybe a game bug).

Additional Comments

I started with a fresh wineprefix and installed IE7+flash with winetricks. Windows version was set to XP. The game installed and patched itself without problems. When I tried to run it I got a message "Failed to start the game. It may result from the Direct 3D Accelerator failure. We recommend you to reinstall the graphics driver. Click OK to run the WindowsDX diagnostic program for further information." and the game exited. I tried to cure it by installing one by one DirectX 9, d3d9, vcrun2005 and corefonts with winetricks. It turned out that the game needed 'simsun.ttc' (and probably 'simsun.ttf') font file. When I got it and put into 'C:\windows\Fonts' folder the game started and allowed me to log in. I encountered no more issues except those I described in 'What doesn't work' section. Hope I didn't forget anything.
