What works

  • Installation
  • Patching
  • Logging in
  • Character creation and customization
  • Playing the game 

There is significant slow-down, the game itself is constantly hogging 10 to 30% of my CPU, but setting the CPU affinity to 1 core (via taskset -p 1 `pidof GameClient.exe`) gave it a nice FPS boost. I found no glitches up to level 5 (first quests, dungeon and running around the city), no problems in the game HUD or the controls. It runs a bit choppy on high graphics and smooth in the mid settings, so it's playable.

It does require IE8 from winetricks, because the launcher doesn't work with wine's native iexplore (SubmitFailed).

The ZEN store, because I'm broke ! :) 

Additional Comments

IE8 (installed via winetricks) under wine wants to download pages as files instead of renderein them at least for me. The workaround is to launch IE from wine's explorer, e.g.
wine explorer 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'

HowTo / Notes

Install
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)

Will not pass the loading screen

Everything looks good, updates correctly. I cannot get past the loading screen, it seems to either freeze or just doesn't continue for some reason.

I am also on 64 bit trying 32 bit wine versions.

I have tried several wine versions including 1.5.3, 1.6RC3, 1.3.?.

I am now in the process of loading a 32 bit linux on an extra partition to see if it is a 32 bit vs 64 bit problem.
Stuck at monitor calibration - mouse click doesn't work

Hi
Can't get past the monitor brightness calibration , I click on "OK" or "Advanced" and nothing happens. I even tried pressing "Enter" on the keyboard and waited for a long time and it is the same , nothing happens.

Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (the wine prefix I used for the game is 32 bit though)
wine 1.6-rc3 (also tried 1.6-rc2)
winetricks ie8

This didn't fix the launcher for me.
Maybe because i'm using a 64 bits system, or maybe for whatever reason i couldn't figure out.
