Must install IEs4Linux (Guide on this page) to avoid Flash error in patching
What does not
Playing the game. When I click "Start", the game window loads, X-Trap (anti-cheat software) starts (or at least I think it does), and then the game crashes.
What was not tested
I recommend other people test the game as well in case this problem is related to only my PC. I submitted a bug to Buzilla about this as well.

First, you must follow this guide to install IEs4Linux so that the game patcher will work, provided by Vividd of Sword of the New World forums:
Now run the installer. Extract the zip archive you downloaded of the game, move to the directory and run the installation file:
Continue through the installer using all default options. Once finished, navigate to the Sword of the New World directory, and run Sword of the New World (not from the installer)
WINEPREFIX="/home/YOUR_USERNAME/.ies4linux/ie6" wine ge.exe
The patcher should load. Let the game download and install its patches. Then, you can click "Start" to start the game.
