The 500 series
What does not
It runs, goes into loading and then it frozes, it even says "Zombie" on Process at System Monitor.
After running it on terminal it runs normally until it comes up with.
"010c:fixme:ntdll:NtQuerySystemInformation info_class SYSTEM_PERFORMANCE_INFORMATION
010c:err:virtual:virtual_setup_exception stack overflow 960 bytes in thread 010c addr 0x20c19c0 stack 0x550c40 (0x550000-0x551000-0x650000)"
Then it comes up with
"012c:fixme:msvcp:_Locinfo__Locinfo_ctor_cat_cstr section 7BC68360 "dlls/ntdll/loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread 012c, blocked by 010c, retrying (60 sec)"
And it keeps going in a loop.
Whatever that the guys at Codeweavers have changed on version 6.3 of Wine has borked IMVU up.

If the fonts in game look distorted, make sure you install the "ttf-mscorefonts-installer" package, as this provides the windows fonts used by IMVU. You can install it easily on Debian/Ubuntu based distros by using the following command in the terminal ("Ctrl+Alt+T" is a keyboard shortcut to open it):
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
You should be prompted to enter your password for sudo as usual.
