Everything but sound (launcher can be unreliable, but generally ok)
What does not
What was not tested
Most visual effects turned off because I'm playing on Intel HD Graphics 3000
Other folks have gotten sound working so it might just be me; in any case, this game is generally pretty wine-friendly.

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.
