Selected Test Results

What works

* Installing the Game 

(use the 14 day trial installer from  once the site loads, it will advertise the trial ability)

 * Running the game

 The shortcut works with no extras, I like to run my games in a window though

* Configuring the game (mostly)
The game, oddly enough, did not get my maximum resolution correct, it's 1680x1050 whereas the game gave me 1360x765. It didn't get pixel shaders 2.0 either (this is something you manually "unlock" in Wine via a registry key, though)

* Playing

I logged in, travelled a bit, messed with some in-game settings. Tried accessing various parts of the ingame menus (datapad, command list, mail, travel interface) and it all worked fine.

What does not

The performance is bearable, but not quite on par with Windows


What was not tested

PvP combat (I didn't have time to set my bindings up etc)

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

No tweaks were required for the game to install or run, therefore it's a gold rating at the least. I won't give platinum as the performance is not quite as good as on Windows, it's definitely playable though!
