Rift: Planes of Telara.
Installing the game Login Play up to level 14 Low Graphics and Regular graphic renderers built into the game client. Sound.
What does not
Most screens during install are blank. It appears that just leaving everything at the defaults (i.e. clicking 'next' on each screen of the installer) works fine. Under ALSA setup via PulseAudio, sound appears to cut out after ~45-60 min of gameplay. Setting the winecfg to use 'OSS' only and prepending the shortcut to use 'padsp wine...' rather than just 'wine ...' appears to fix the issue. Minor cosmetic issue: After login, the 'Rift' splash screen is overlayed with a large black rectangle (I'm guessing some kind of splash screen animation). This stays until the character select screen is showing.
What was not tested
Gameplay past level 14 in 'live' version.
Required a winetricks install of d3dx9.

Latest Wine upgrade made atleast my Rift constantly crashing(30 min - 1 hour after playing), but there is a trick to reduce this crashing:
It seems to degrade performance a bit, but in some places it somehow actually increases it. I guess itâ€™s threading policy of Rift that causes it. The impact is barely noticeable by me, tell me if you have other opinions.
This setting also removes rendering artifacts, where all kind of funny white stripes and other ugly particles and planes are shown where they shouldnâ€™t be, to make it ~pixel perfect to what it should be.
