All gameplay elements. There weren't any obvious issues once the game was running. (For AMD users)
Unable to test status of ground textures on nVidia cards, as I do not have an nVidia GPU.
What does not
When attempting launch the game via the game's launcher, you will get an error, citing incompatible DirectX version.
You will need to have a DirectX 11 override in place for the game to run. Do do this please follow the following 7 steps.
-Select the default prefix
-Add the eso64.exe executable to your applications list. This will allow you to put configuration changes in place that only affect this application
-Go the Libraries tab
-Start typing d3dx11 and select d3dx11_43 from the list.
You will also get an error stating that the DirectX version of you GPU is not compatible with the game. To fix that issue, guides with screenshots are available here: https://www.reddit.com/r/elder... and here http://www.overclock.net/t/141... as well as a text post right here:
-Select the default wine prefix
-Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER>SOFTWARE>WINE and right click on 'WINE'. You're going to want to add a key called Direct3D
-Right click on Direct3D and you're going to want to add a DWORD value.
-Insert a Hexadecimal value of 30002
What was not tested
And testing with an nVidia GPU
The game runs, but performance isn't great. On Windows, I play on Ultra settings and I rarely dip below 60 FPS. In order to get 60 FPS on WINE, I had to lower to the Medium preset. In cities, framerates drop into the 20s.
There is also a bug where the controls 'stick' when the frame rate is low. For example: if you're running through a city, and you desire to stop and talk to an NPC, you lift your finger off 'w'. However, your character continues to run for a couple seconds before they stop running in game. This only happens when frame rates are low, and is a known issue with the game. But it does not prevent the user from playing the game all together, it is simply annoying.

This a temporary fix for when the game isn't starting when hitting the "Play" button in the launcher. It works simply by replacing the 64bit executable with the 32bit one, essentially forcing the game to run in 32bit mode. It works on either 32/64bit prefixes.
Important note: Remember that ESO will drop 32bit support in 2018
