What does not
Everything after hitting "Play". A swtor.exe process is created, but the game never properly launches.
What was not tested
Anything past the launcher.
I've tried Wine 1.5.1 up to 1.5.4, both patches with the KUSER_DATA fix and without. The game no longer launches after a recent patch.

1) Ensure that git is installed:
sudo apt-get install git
sudo yum install git
2) Get a copy of the wine source:
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git cd wine-git
3) Get a copy of the patch:
wget -O KUSER_SHARED_DATA http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=40435
4) Make sure that you have the requirements to compile wine:
Check out this link for 64 bit systems. You may want to only build the 32bit version to simplify things:
5) Apply the patch:
cat KUSER_SHARED_DATA | patch -p1
6) Build wine:
See Bug 29168 for more details.
- Change to the Loading Screen directory.
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Electronic\ Arts/BioWare/Star\ Wars\ -\ The\ Old\ Republic/swtor/retailclient/LoadingScreens/
- Rename the loading screens
mv LoadingScreen.jpg LoadingScreen.jpg.bak
mv LoadingIconAnim.dds LoadingIconAnim.dds.bak
At this point you will have a blank screen loading the server list, and people have seen long pauses while try waiting for the server list to load.
