What works

Gameplay in general, Tested to level 10


Zen in game market. (See note about buying zen)

What does not

Minor lag issues in certain areas. Can be helped a lot by forcing 30FPS and enabling auto stabilise frame rate, with low or medium graphics options in full screen.

Game has a tendency to freeze up when...

  • Going to support at character select screen.
  • When starting the game after it has been forcefully closed without rebooting Linux.
  • Sometimes the freezes can be severe enough for Linux to stop responding to the operating system. 
  • Buying Zen in game (Use a out of game web browser as a work around).

Additional Comments

Requires IE8 Required wine 32bit in previous wine versions, did not reinstall to test if 64bit started working with 1.6-rc4. wine 1.5.31 and 1.5.30 both had severe crashing issues, and failure to pass the loading screens. i could play at times for 30 min a shot. 1.6-rc4 has marked improvements across the board.

HowTo / Notes

Because of bug 33495 Neverwinter needs ie8 installed, which currently can only be installed in a 32 bit prefix.
(Alter the prefix path as needed)
WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter WINEARCH=win32 winetricks ie8 
Install and launch the game with the same prefix as before. WINEARCH isn't required after this point.
In the options panel of the launcher, it seems to help to check "Disable on-demand patching" and put "-enablerawinputsupport 0" in the "Advanced command line" editbox.

Per discussions below, some people experience a crash running in windowed mode. It seems full screen is more stable with some computer setups.

Only ie8 is needed for this game to install and run now. Previously it was required to install the following: WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter winetricks corefonts, d3dx9, msls31, winhttp, wininet, ie8

(Left here in case someone should need them)
