Additional Comments

Tested with Nvidia drivers v195.36.15, can't say anything about ATI cards. Mouse is confined to a rather large area, possibly just can't go past the screen edge. Annoying, but still allows you to make a 360 degree spin. In the rest of it game works flawlessly, just follow the HowTo (minimal client.cfg not required, works without it).

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  1. Download the game (and create you account)
  2. Install the game (no special wine config needed)
  3. Copy mfc42.dll, msvcp60.dll and msvcrt.dll to your Ryzom installation folder
  4. Run winecfg and add a override to msvcrt (native/buildin) in "Libraries" tab
  5. Set Windows version to Win2000, WinXP or Vista (for HardwareCursor to display correctly)
  6. Use the minimal client.cfg from below (overwrite the lines of the client.cfg in your Ryzom installation folder. You may change the setting later ingame or using the configuration tool)
  7. Starting the game should look something like this:
WINEDEBUG=-all nice -n 19 wine client_ryzom_rd.exe > /dev/null

client.cfg:

­
RootConfigFilename   = "client_default.cfg";
HardwareCursor       = 1;
FullScreen           = 0;
Driver3D             = "OpenGL";
SoundOn              = 0;
BackgroundDownloader = 0;
LanguageCode         = "en";
StartupHost          = "su1.ryzom.com:40916";
StartupPage          = "/login/r2_login.php";
InstallStatsUrl      = "http://su1.ryzom.com:50000/stats/stats.php";

Ingame screens getting messed up by switching desktops
http://forums.ryzom.com/showthread.php?t=30655 says:

In Section "Device" of your xorg.conf file you should check that Option "DynamicTwinView" "true" is set. ­In section screen you should set your resolution and RefreshRate by just adding the line Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024_75 +0+0; 1280x1024 +0+0" (modify to your needs - this line is for a 17" flat panel).

You'll notice that every app that uses xrandr extension to read and set resolution will have the values all messed up, but that's a known issue and it still works well. Set Ryzom to use the new RefreshRate by selecting it in ryzom_configuration_rd.exe.

- I have not tested this atm

WARNING
If you play Ryzom fullscreen, then on startup Ryzom minimizes itself (currently at least). Unpatched WINE (see Bug: #16517) resizes Ryzom to 32x32 size icon (and hides it if WINE desktop is not used), on patched WINE, Ryzom stays fullscreen like nothing happened, but it is infact in icon mode, so you need to d­ouble-click to get keyboard/mouse control back.
