Installing, activating and playing a game
What does not
When i want to play a game , i often have a timeout error (error 802) from the client. It happens about 4 times out of 5. i retry again and again and it's ok.
What was not tested
Buying a game
I installed the following components with Winetricks. I don't know if all of them are useful : - comdlg32ocx, - d3dx9, - dotnet 2.0, - Flash Player 10, (after internet Explorer) - Internet Explorer 8 - msxml6, - Shockwave.

Run winetricks -q corefonts before installation.
This is a hint for those who have a Windows installation of the Big Fish Games. Originally suggested by Booman.
Just copy the installed game folders from your Windows system (usually under C:\Program Files; or as you chose during the initial installation of the client) to the WINE virtual drive (to C:\Program Files again or to the base directory you chose during the initial installation of the client on WINE).
Then run WINE with e. g. "wine C:\\Program Files\\Azkend\\Azkend.exe" and you should be able to play the game.
