Installation tips: Create the "bottle": WINEARCH=win32 winecfg Make sure to install these packages using winetricks: -d3dx11_43 -dotnet20 -dotnet30sp1 -dotnet35 -dotnet35sp1 -xact_jun2010 Install using the Tribes Ascend Installer. It should succeed and launch the download and install the update patches. If you need to launch the game again, you can use the icons on the desktop, or "HiRezLauncherUI.exe" (It'll scold you for not using the icon, but it works)
