Asheron's Call, latest download from Turbine as of Nov 2010. Running on Ubuntu 10.10, Wine 1.3.5 Nvidia Proprietary Graphics Drivers OSS4 Sound Drivers for SB audigy 2.
What does not
ALSA Drivers for Audigy 2 , Full Screen Mode in any resolution WITHOUT emulated Desktop.
What was not tested
Installation was smooth, I followed the instructions here (at wine-hq) listed for an earlier version. *Needed setting change to get functional performance -I experienced either a complete system lock-up or a crash to gnome login screen when I attempted to play this game in full screen without emulating a desktop via the winecfg video options. The issue happens when Asheron's Call would attempt a resolution change. Using the desktop emulation in wine was the only way I could get this problem to cease. *Needed alternative sound drivers for SB Audigy 2 ** On-Board (intel I believe) worked fine -Asheron's Call did not give any sound when using the ALSA driver settings in Wine. Changing Wine to OSS will provide sound. If you have an Audigy 2 sound card, using OSS4 as the primary driver was the only way I was able to hear sound from Asheron's Call.
