The game (gameplay) in Windowed mode (can work in fullscreen pending you set your desktop to the fullscreen size beforehand)
What does not
What was not tested
DirectX 11 support (as there seemed little point)
Overrides: d3dcompiler_43 mscoree msvcr100 To install .NET 4.0 in a 64 bit env, the dotnetfx cleanup tool is what is needed before running the .NET 4.0 x64 installer. Otherwise the 4.0 installer seemed absolutely certain that it was already installed. Can confirm 64 bit MWOClient running in Wine 64 bit prefix.

It is not possible to run the installer until the bug below is fixed.
Your best hope of running this game is to install it on windows then copy the files over to linux and attempt to run it from there.

MechWarrior Online requires .NET and DirectX9 at the minimum. Setting the renderer to OpenGL is a must. Some textures / rendering may not show correctly as there may not be enough GPU memory to house everything.
