The game installed flawlessly.
Using the Star Wars Galaxies: Starter Kit CD Pack, I copied the installation files to a folder on my desktop and then set the "Allow executing file as program" checkbox.
The program runs well.
What does not
The only shortcoming that I have found so far is:
Screen Resolution - I have an Acer 19" wide screen display, if I play full screen, the characters look "squashed". If I play in windowed mode it has the proper screen aspect. Under Windows, my native display resolution of 1440x900 is supported, however the highest display resolution that shows is: 1152x864. If you are running a non-wide screen display, this should not be an issue for you.
What was not tested
Flying in a large PVP space battle.
I am currently using the most recent stable Wine release: 1.2.2 - but the option is not displayed in the "Tested release" section. USB joysticks work well. I have a T-Flight Hotas, all movement and button mappings work flawlessly.
