v1132 is the version issued as of 3/3/10 for the open beta. The current version (as of 9/16/10) from the official website is v1136.
Download, Installation, and Updater. Once files were finished downloading, I was able to unpack them with ark and proceed to installation without any difficulty. After installation, I was able to update the client to the current version and check files using the updater.
What does not
Resolution Setting, Launching the Game. The updater options menu provides a setting for resolution, however, this drop down menu appears blank with no default resolution appearing to be selected. The game fails to launch after installation and update. Initially I received an error regarding insufficient video memory. I attempted to resolve this by setting the Video Memory Size, under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine -> Direct3D, to reflect my hardware capabilities. This seems to have resolved the video memory error, however the game still crashes when attempting to launch.
What was not tested
Gameplay. As I have been unable to launch the game itself, all gameplay elements remain completely untested.
I am not a particularly experienced wine user, however, as this game has not yet appeared on the radar of the wine community, I felt compelled to offer what experience I have had in attempting to get it to run.
