What works

Similar to running under Linux the following works as expected.

-Installation from downloaded installer (works mostly, see notes)
-Launcher start up and login
-Character creation
-Character login
-Gameplay using newly and already created characters
-PVP / Legends / Alerts / Duos / Challenges / Operations
-In game marketplace (DBC Coins)

-Switching back and forth between window and fullscreen

-Switching apps works fine 

What does not

-The configuration applet from the launcher still does not work, it relies on .NET 3.5 but still fails with it intalled.
-The previous game crashing issues haven't been seen this time around.

Additional Comments

I did no winetricks to the wineprefix. The DCUO installer installed all that was needed (DirectX9 and VC++ runtime). So far I haven't seen any mouse problems and the frame rate is good with or without sync. As mentioned in my previous Linux report the current installer (DCUO_Setup.exe) installs but crashes at the end due to it calling the .net 3.5 installer which hangs wine. Once it reaches the .net install phase force quit wine from the apple menu > Force Quit option to kill the last WINE process (there should be 2 or 3 of them). It will then continue to install DX9 and the VC runtimes. I had to give it a Silver rating because it does not seem to work with nVidia video cards at all. I get a black screen with the DCUO icon in the corner. AMD cards seem to work fine so far. This has been common of nVidia card for a long time. Sadly you will need to start DCUO from the terminal or make a Icon for it. The WINE wiki has an entry for this.
