What works

The game. It seems like there's some problems with PhysX, but I can't test it (my videocart isn't support PhysX). Sometimes, if you use pulseaudio, you sometimes need to type "pulseaudio -k" (kill audio server) in console for normal playing wine games.

What does not

Installer, maybe PhysX

Additional Comments

Installer dies with "NSIS error: error launching installer". Somebody wrote that ie6 do the trick, but it doesn't. "/NCRC" is not useful too. If you install it somewhere else and just copy files, it'll perfectly run. If you have problems with starting game, try installing: d3dcompiler_43 d3dx10 d3dx11_42 d3dx11_43 d3dx9 d3dx9_26 d3dx9_28 d3dx9_31 d3dx9_35 d3dx9_36 d3dx9_39 d3dx9_42 d3dx9_43 directx9 gecko120 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 winhttp wininet xact xact_jun2010 xinput Steam also can be helpful. Try to install any Unreal Engine 3-based game on linux and do the first run of that game. Steam'll install some components and Hawken should start.

HowTo / Notes

INSTALLING AND RUNNING

>>> RUNNING
If you have problems with sound — 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.

>>> INSTALLING
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:
d3dx10
d3dx11_42
d3dx11_43
d3dx9
d3dx9_26
d3dx9_28
d3dx9_31
d3dx9_35
d3dx9_36
d3dx9_39
d3dx9_42
d3dx9_43
directx9
gecko120
vcrun2005
vcrun2008
winhttp
wininet
xact
xact_jun2010
xinput
ie6


Also set this settings to:
ddr=opengl
multisampling=enabled
mwo=force


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.
