- Connecting to game servers
What was not tested
1) The empty white launcher can be cured by installing ie8 with winetricks. 2) After this the launcher works great and the game starts but locks up at the startup screen. To go further I had to add an option "SINGLETHREADSTARTUP" to the first line of the "CommandLine.txt" file (found in game root folder or "steamapps/common/rise of immortals/" folder inside of Steam if the game is downloaded from there). Then I was able to see the main menu after game restart. 3) When trying to connect the game issues "Timed out while waiting for character information". I was not able to overcome this bug but the reason is probably in lacking of some kind of network encryption in wine because the game log file ("_Logfile.txt") contains several entries like "PacketClass::Decode_Header -- Decode error - message hash is incorrect. Security = true". To sum up there are a couple of solvable issues and a connection problem. If the bug with connection can be solved then the game will probably run flawlessly as animations in the main menu are looking good.
