Install Client Launcher - Patching
What does not
What was not tested
Gameplay - Can't get logged in.
1. Delete the vc80 and vc90 manifests from /windows/winsxs/manifests before running the game installer. 2. Install quartz and devenum with winetricks (needed to get sound). 3. Install gdiplus with winetricks (fixes the garbled fonts on the login screen). 4. Run the installer. I used cd /home/ubunto/.wine/drive_c/Games/Eligium pasuspender -- wine play.exe Pasuspender disables Pulse Audio which causes problems. I had to make sure I clicked inside the game window as soon as I launched it.

4. Run the installer.
If you don't have the MS fonts installed systemwide you may also need to install winetricks corefonts. Ubuntu users may need to run winetricks fontfix before installing gdiplus.
Note that Wine will recreate the vc80 manifest every time Wine is updated, and you will have to delete it again. Making that directory read-only will prevent this.
