What works

Created a new character, used the costume editor, door missions, outdoor maps, auction house, stores. Tested with wine 0.9.47 on Ubuntu 7.04

Was able to use sound correctly, and performance with sound seemed substantially improved over use on XP.

What does not

Cannot use Alt-Click for setting which tray is active when alt key is hit. It seems alt+mouse is not being sent to the window.

Dual core support "-renderthread 1" parameter from launcher locks the task (or occasionally leads to infinite Loading... message). I suspect this has to do with the threadsafe issues I've read about on the forums.

Mouse cursor, as reported by others.

When chatting the fist character is lost when typing, and you have to hit ESC to get out of chat mode (or you can click with the mouse on a valid target).

Was unable to get anti-alias support to work, even though the options showed it was enabled. Still had the "jaggies" problem on characters and on most world objects/textures.

HowTo / Notes

Note about setting game resolution

Information courtesy of Dan.

"There seems to be an issue currently with the ingame resolution options. If you change them, then click apply, it will reset the resolution back to before you changed it and tell you to restart. When you restart, the resolution won't have changed. To get it to change you have to set it to the correct resolution, apply, set it again, and then quit the game with the options menu still open."

Possible Fix for shaders (specific to NVidia cards)

Information courtesy of Tremblay:

In the registry, in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\OpenGL, have the string value DisabledExtensions set to:

GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object GL_NV_register_combiners GL_NV_register_combiners2 GL_NV_register_combiners3 GL_NV_texture_shader GL_NV_texture_shader2

(basically list each extensions with a space between each)

I can then set the in-game shader option higher than low with bumpmaps.

I think you *could* leave out GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object, I put it there because it helps World of Warcraft.

Jeff has offered another work around:

Run 'CohUpdater.exe -usetexenvcombine' to run in a low graphics mode that allows use of the costume selector and mission architect.  Beats adding / removing the registry keys, and it'll usually retain your old graphics settings.  Just make sure you don't have any level of antialiasing enabled (2x, 4x, etc) otherwise there'll be graphical wackiness
