Installation and Launcher in 1000x614 frame
Initially launching the game with patched wine from v1.3
What does not
Getting past the Loading-Screen
What was not tested
Server Selection, Character Creation, Gameplay
You will be able to install the game, I'v installed vcrun2008 and d3dx9_36 with winetricks and applied the KUSER-Patch. Problem is that the game needs like 2-5 minutes to actually start and then the game load for 2 hours ( yea I let it run that long ) but wasn't able to get into the server-selection-screen. Tested it with both 64bit and 32bit prefix, in the 32bit prefix the loading screen actually freezed after a few seconds.

With some versions of Wine, the game will crash if icons are hovered
over on the main map. Avoid this by keeping the mouse out of the way
when viewing the map.
This bug occurs for some players, but not all. I (Scott Weldon) have tested with Wine 1.7.50, and the game did not crash when hovering over icons on the map. However, other users have reported that they are still experiencing the bug. Any help in narrowing down the cause is appreciated.
