Additional Comments

Note: wine version = 1.5.24 (form wont let me select it) sound sometimes comes out distorted (as if it was accelerated), it usually gets fixed when some other app produces a sound event (not a movie player though) used winecfg to set the launcher to run in a desktop sized 1000x614 the game can afterwards be resized to the desired resolution. using swtor_fix.exe from this thread: to run game to get it working, used the PlayOnLinux interface to run the installer (and install d3dx9 and vcrun2008), create a prefix and basic setup, then used it to get wine 1.5.24 (had it working with wine 1.5.22 before swtor 2.1 patch) then to avoid having to depend on playonlinux, i made 2 lil scripts, one that invokes the fix and the other that invokes the launcher.

HowTo / Notes

32 bit Required
This game requires a 32-bit Wine prefix. To ensure this is so, prefix all commands with "env WINEARCH=win32", or do "export env WINEARCH=win32" once before running any commands.
Possible Map Crash Bug

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.

Running SWTOR
Before running the game, launch swtor_fix.exe (found here) in the background.
