The official release version. Beginning with versions 1.x.
Everything I tried, to a degree.
What does not
There are some NPCs which draw glitchy in Act 3, and instances of unacceptable lag
(particularly with bosses). The performance graphs (F1) normally look like a long-tooth saw, except for the network meter. Common lagspikes earn PoE a "bronze" rating: to play this game, you must have at least consistent performance, or the lag kills you often (forget any hardcore mode).
Enabling FSAA in PoE causes a blank screen and lots of FIXMEs in the terminal.
Fonts glitch badly enough to sometimes unreadable. It looks like an intermittent alignment problem. Or maybe something changed between PoE versions. Or maybe something changed in Debian (Wheezy is nearing final release, but isn't yet "stable").
PoE has an acknowledged reality fragmentation problem. It may or may not be worse in Wine than on Windows.
What was not tested
Lots of PoE's active skills.
Test machine: Phenom x3 8750 clocked 2.5 GHz 4 GB RAM ASUS Radeon HD 4670 512MB with hack-job replaced cooling fan, driver Catalyst 13.1 legacy Even with libosmesa installed, running with Mesa got the "Unable to create texture. D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE Not Available" error. With AMD/Catalyst, you can't disable GLSL to make things run faster: you won't be able to see anything at all. "Reserving space" for the initial install takes a while. Did "winetricks d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_42 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010" to make the game run, don't know if it needed all that. Mono for Windows is a functional enough substitute to Microsoft's .NET runtime, if it's even needed. Default show-dropped-items key is Alt. Most windowmanagers have alt-click for "drag this window." Watching RAM usage with 'top', the game will usually confine itself to a little over 2GB of RAM, pushing a few k of other stuff into swap (can adjust caching in config). Wine 1.4.1 does not have the memory leak problem (which seems fixed, anyway: check the 1.25 release). When playing windowed/windowed (Wine itself windowed, client windowed), the buttons aren't where they're drawn: click below them. I wrote this across a few patches of PoE, didn't pay too close attention to exactly which ones.
