Logging in, Testing Grounds, playing matches, mechlab, changing settings. Pretty much everything I tried.
What does not
Nothing I found
What was not tested
Buying mechs with cbills or MC.
I needed to use a 32 bit wine environment In winetricks: set ddr=opengl set OS to Windows XP Enable CSMT install: d3dx_43 (I also had d3dx9, d3dx9_36, and d3dx9_42 installed but was only using _43) [d3dx9_36 works but has flickering occasionally] msxml3 (before dotnet40) dotnet40 vcrun2010 Override: to native atl100 d3dx9_43 mscoree msvcp100 msvcr100 msxml3 vcomp100 And the game should run.

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.
