Menus and Garage
Playing the game.
What does not
What was not tested
Only tested deathmatch, no other game types.
http://linuxgamecast...ith-winetricks/ Followed the link above and installed the necessary libraries with winetricks but was still unable to launch. Would get a tiny window in the upper left corner that appeared to have the main menu, but it was less than a quarter of an inch wide so it was hard to tell. Running in console it was complaining about not having XAPOFX1_5.dll. I found a random site to download the DLL from and placed it in /.wine/drive_c/windows/system/. Then ran winecfg, went to Libraries and typed in XAPOFX1_5.dlland clicked add. After that, the game loaded correctly. It will not actually take priority on the screen when run, however. and I had to use Super+Tab to cycle through to Wine on my system bar for it to take priority.

If you have problems with sound â€” you're using pulseaudio, aren't you? To fix sound lags restart pulseaudion server (`pulseaudio -k` in terminal). Lags in game can be created by sound problems.
If you have problems while retrieving manifest, just close and open launcher while "Launch" button will be active.
Sometimes (not too often) game client dies, but reason is overloading GPU/CPU, I think.
You need to put hawkenInstaller.exe to folder without non-english character in path (like /home/user/): there's some encoding problems. I recommend you to create new 32 bit wineprefix. For this type in terminal:
$ WINEPREFIX=~/hawken WINEARCH=win32 wine hawkenInstaller.exe
After installing game client, do not start it. Install this components (using winetricks) first:
Also set this settings to:
To open winetricks for this prefix use `WINEPREFIX=~/hawken winetricks` command.
If game still not work, try to install any Unreal Engine 3-based game through Steam (CrimeCraft: GangWars, for example) and run it once. Steam will install all components that game need.
