Login, gameplay, mapping, zoning. Everything basically.
What does not
Some textures are missing (black), zoning takes a long time, framerate is rather low (around 20-30) on geforce 9600GT (like 150 in windows with vsync off). Laggy when looking around with few textures loaded. Crashes on window resize in KDE on newest unstable Kubuntu.
What was not tested
Installing from scratch.

NOTE: Guild Wars usually doesn't require any special settings to get working. The advice listed below is only for those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting Guild Wars.

WINEDEBUG=-all wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe"
WINEDEBUG=-all will stop the flood of fixme messages generated from normal use. If you require debugging, omit this option.
If you are having graphics issues, use regedit to try some registry keys:
Appending these flags to the run command may help you:
