After struggling - all seems to work fine

What was not tested
I got several severe issues (thus silver rating), most of which mentioned by others: * videos did not play (were skipped completely) without overrides, * game crashed on some UI actions without winetricks vcrun2013 (e.g. on browsing skills [p]), * some textures were rendered incorrectly (plain black or gray) without some extra d3dx_* winetricks (don't know which one helped, installed almost all of them), * sound did not work in the game (but worked in videos) until I winetricks xact_jun2010 Tested on Intel HD video/audio, 32bit prefix, winxp (any other crashes the game), glyph installer, wine 1.8.0 (most recent in Gentoo).

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.
