Installer works without a hitch (which must be noted given the fact that sometimes it won't work under windows) Under Wine, the launcher starts ONLY if you set it to run with Windows 98/ME emulation.
What does not
The game doesn't work; sro_client.exe crashes with a ???? error message, reporting the use of 2gb of memory, mostly physical with some swap.
Gameplay wasn't tested the client didn't run at all.
It USED TO BE GOLDEN and a patch I submitted was marked as a duplicate because silkroad uses gameguard and I can't confirm that this crash is gameguard's fault, but it seems that this crash is the result of the latest patches to the client (sro_client.exe) because versions prior to 1.126 worked well.
What was not tested
Gameplay was not tested.

If you intend to submit a screenshot, please make sure that it does not have your character details by pressing F12 beforehand. Also make sure you are only taking a screenshot of the Silkroad window, and not the Desktop.
