What works

Pretty much everything the unregistered copy can do. It installed fine, it accepted the massive database I installed of 17,716 cards, it accepted the 17,400 card images I had to go along with it. I could create and edit decks, I could save them. I could technically play with the decks in solitare mode and the little bit I ventured into multiplayer seemed to work too. The images (for both the cards and the UI) display well everywhere, including while actually playing.

What does not

In the gameplay mode (MWSPlay.exe), most of the important pieces of text don't appear. Life totals (basically your health), the timer and overall match time, the number of cards in your hand, in your library, in your graveyard, etc. You can workaround some of this (for example, double clicking your avatar to see your life), but without a lot of that text it's a bit of a hassle to play. Plus it seems to run a little sluggish compared to Windows, but just a little bit.

Additional Comments

To achieve all of this, I needed to use winetricks and install corefonts and gdiplus. Without gdiplus at least, the gameplay area would be really glitchy and pretty much unusable... plus without it many images come up black.

HowTo / Notes


install normally.

get winetricks from and do:

sh winetricks corefonts


the Arial and Times fonts are needed for the numbers and names to show up on cards and zones.

(Please note:With the latest version of wine, do NOT delete the .dll that the other test result comments told you to delete; if you do, it will give you problems with the play area not displaying.)
