What works

Everything I tried. PVE, PVP, Party locations, Stronghold, Sharandar. All music sound, and voice worked as expected.

Even took a screen shot that tabbed me out of the game, tabbed back in and it picked right back up flawlessly

Running on Kubuntu 15.04 

What does not

Additional Comments

I set enablerawinputsupport 0 out of habit. Tried again with it removed still played flawlessly. I don't think this option is needed anymore, but if you have issues with the mouse you should try it. I am running the old launcher, (i.e. not steam, not arc). It isn't hard to find. I keep several of them on hand :)

HowTo / Notes

Installing Arc
Standing where you have downloaded the Arc installer enter this comand:
(Alter the prefix and filename as needed)
WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcInstall_v20131010a.exe

Launching Arc When installing Arc, you should have gotten an option for a desktop shortcut, but the manual way of launching Arc would be:  (Standing in the folder you installed Arc into. Alter the prefix path as needed)

WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcLauncher.exe

From there you can download and start Neverwinters launcher - Which will update the game and start the actual game.


Windowed mode crashes
Some users have experienced crashes when running in windowed mode. Should that happen for you, try running in full screen mode instead.

Mouse input lagging
If you experience lag when using the mouse, try going to the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher, and add "-enablerawinputsupport 0" in the "Advanced command line" editbox.

Disabling on-demand patching
This is mostly a matter of preference - If you want to force the launcher to update the entire game before you play, head into the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher and check "Disable on-demand patching".

Freezes while on loading screen
There has been problems, with Neverwinter freezing on the loading screen, with a combination of fglrx drivers and wine 1.7 - It isn't quite clear, what exactly triggers that, but downgrading wine, and/or changing fglrx driver versions apparently helps.

1.8-rc1 might fix this if someone really want to try the arc launcher or the old launcher cannot be found.
Arc launcher won't work

As OP said, the "old launcher" might work. After some searching I found it but I am not sure I am allowed to link it. Chances are, if nothing else, the link might be dead.

I had zero luck with the Arc Launcher, it seems to be an issue with vcrun2013 and Wines own implementation of msvcp120. See and

While the native vcrun2013 fixes this, the launcher gives me unhandled page fault error instead. Perhaps 32 bits wineprefix might fix that.

This happen on 1.7.55 64 bits.
