What does not
The launcher/updater doesn't start.
Tried the winetricks a previous poster listed in a working config, none of it helped (dotnet20, ie6, directx9, etc). There was no terminal output that pointed to needing any of the additional software/overrides. Additionally, little efforts reported in the Forsaken World forums such as renaming game files, were tried. None of these made any difference.
What was not tested
Everything past installation.
From the FAQ: Q: Will Forsaken World use programs like X-trap or Gameguard? Perfect World Beijing produces proprietary anti-cheat/hack software, which is invisible to end-users. (I wonder if the posters who reported the game working were lucky enough to hit a beta release when the anti-cheat system was not functioning as the developers intended, and, I'm sure they never thought to make it work nicely with wine.)
