Everything worked... initially
Once in the game, everything ran very smoothly. In fact, the glitchiness which plagued my Windows installation was gone.
What does not
Received a couple of error messages when I first tried to run it, but it still ran.
The pre-loader screen doesn't load properly. The buttons are visible, but you won't see any of the server statuses or News posts.
The character selection screen didn't render properly. All I saw was a dark blue background with a few lines here and there. The characters rendered perfectly though, so it doesn't affect your ability to choose which of your characters to play with
In the game, the cursor doesn't change at all. You can still carry out actions like attacking and talking, but the cursor won't change.
I noticed some artefacts while using some of the skills, like strange black shapes around the Explorer's lightning bolt skill. Doesn't affect gameplay though.
After exiting the program I can't seem to get it to run again. While the first time it still allowed me to run it after the error messages I mentioned earlier, now it just quits.
What was not tested
The only thing I can think of that I didn't test was new character creation.
Once inside the game I tried everything I could think of. I ran around, talked to others, used skills, changed game settings, used the keyboard shortcuts, etc etc.
If it was somehow possible to get the pre-loader screen to not crash, the game would run perfectly once loaded. This should be Gold, but because I don't know how to make it work, I'll unfortunately have to label it as 'Garbage' to adhere to the rating definitions :( Maybe someone else can work it out :)
