Star Wars: The Old Republic
What does not
What was not tested
I followed all the steps provided. At first I could not pass the initial loading screen. After renaming both files: swtor/retailclient/LoadingScreens/LoadingIconAnim.dds swtor/retailclient/LoadingScreens/LoadingScreen.jpg I was able to see (and hear) the intro movie. After that I was able to view the server list, unfortunately, after choosing one the black screen appears and a mouse cursor I can move around. Now each time I execute launcher and hit play I go straight to the black screen.

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.
