Rift: Planes of Telara.
Login and Gameplay
Intros and Cutscenes
What does not
Some graphics rendering, trees in particular, do not render properly, and have a constantly flashing black over them. It does not seem to impact gameplay
Background downloader can not run in the background. So you have to let it fully update before you try to play the game.
What was not tested
Large scale encounters
Most things actually
Make sure you install this in its own bottle through Wine, it helps ensure that the cinematics, cutscenes, and intros all work properly. Still need to use winetricks to install vcrun2008 and d3dx9

Winetricks allows you to install:
sh winetricks vcrun2008 d3dx9
Mixy reported the following (taken from the comment below):
To make Glyph working:$ wget -O ~/winetricks winetricks.googlecode.com/svn-history/r1209/trunk/src/winetricks
$ sh ~/winetricks d3dx9_43 d3dcompiler_43 strictdrawordering=enabled
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.
