What works

Installing the game
Logging in
Playing the game at "compatibility" graphics settings (I'm currently working to see which setting causes SB to crash while wandering the wilderness, but for now, just go into the SB Config and select "Compatibility")

What does not

Playing the game with anything approaching decent graphics
For some reason, the graphics in my installer disappeared when trying to reinstall it after an uninstall (see below)


What was not tested

Anything outside of newbie island.

Additional Comments

When I first installed Shadowbane, the installer worked perfectly after I copied /usr/share/fonts/*.ttf to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/, but I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if I could fix some problems that I was having and I lost all of the graphics for the installer. The installer still worked, but I had to guess where the buttons were. I did not upgrade wine between uninstalling SB and reinstalling it, so I don't know what caused that problem. If you have the same problem, just keep hitting in the bottom right corner of the installer window until "ls ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Ubisoft/" shows the newly made shadowbane directory. Then, cd to the Ubisoft or Shadowbane directory and do a "watch du". When the "watch du" no longer changes, the installer is finished, and one more click in the bottom right corner will close the installer.
