Selected Test Results

What works

  • Native launcher (but it can take veeery to download the loading screens ... whatever goes on in background)
  • PyLotro launcher
  • The game itself
  • In-game store
  • Exit (really, I don't have to kill anything)

What does not

  • Keyboard shortcuts right of '0' (zero) can be assigned but are not stored - German keyboard layout, affects keys 'ß' and ''' (dead_acute)
  • Launcher characters 'a', 'm' and 'w' appear distorted - using winetricks corefonts


What was not tested

  • Game downloader and installation
  • Full-screen gameplay

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

The game files where upgraded from a previous release (via PyLotro), installation from scratch was not tested. As my Xorg setup is somewhat buggy, I did not test playing in full-screen mode. Depending on which window manager is used, it may be a good idea to disallow window decoration (via winecfg) as otherwise the vertical resolution in window mode may not be calculated correctly clipping the lower screen graphical elements.
