What works

Installing the game Logging in Creating a character A small amount of play time in-game

What does not

The game will crash at some point (usually very soon) after it's started, while loading terrain on the horizon. It may be possible to fix this by disabling certain features, but I haven't had time to test it. However, it should be noted that this game no longer causes X to freeze up. At least, not on my system. From everything I've tested, the crashing is not based on time, but moving distance. If you stand perfectly still, you should be able to stay in game for as long as you want. Once you start moving, though, you're screwed.


What was not tested

Anything outside of the newbie area. My old characters are gone (or maybe on another account - I can't remember), and my new characters can't get around to kill anything, so they can't leave.

Additional Comments

You need to put an arial.ttf file in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/ in order for the downloaded installer to work.
