I previously tested the game way back in version 9.17. The game is still *mostly* playable, with some annoyances. Chat seems to work without error also. Only the scrollbar bug hinders gameplay.
Noteworthy improvements since 9.17:
-The game no longer requires installation of Internet Explorer to run.
-The Interfaces elements which would not drag in the previous test (9.17) now do.
What does not
-Scroll-bars do not scroll properly, preventing access to the last few items in any dialog. This includes both the scroll-bars in the 'spells dialog' and the inventory-style dialogs. Interestingly the scroll-bar on the /who dialog is acctually displayed as 2 bars, neither of which work properly.This is the game-stopping bug for playing the game in wine, as you'll never be able to access the last few items in your inventory, cast certain spells. etc.
-Another very minor issue that I did not note in the previous test was the purple outline some of the text in the interface has (see the black text 'West Leinster Gatekeeper' in the screenshot).
-The game is somewhat unstable, randomly crashing between screens on occasion.
-Another very rare occurance which I have only noted twice, and have been unable to reproduce, caused the game to draw outside of the application window, infact all over the desktop.
What was not tested
I did not test sound, or full-screen mode this time around.I also did not test the crafting dialog, character creation, or the in-game mail system.
